I feel a draft, and a GIVEAWAY! [closed]

We argue about the temperature quite often in our house. I am always a tad too cold, and the hubs is, well, always blazin' hot (ow ow!). Since the addition of our wood burning stove, however, I've been feeling warmer and thus happier. A warm wife is a happy wife. While I'm still wearing sweaters and leggings at night, hubs strips down to his skivvies to sleep (too much information? sorry bout that.). For now we seemed to have reached a compromise with the temperature which is fantastic....but then why am I still chilly?? I just cannot put my finger on why I'm still cold. I wear wool sweaters to bed for crying out loud! Do you think I'm getting sick? Quick, someone put their lips on my forehead!

Sweater: Macy's, last year. Pants: Target. Boots: JCPenney. Purse: Vintage Dooney and Bourke, Annie Laurie's Antiques. Necklace: The Buckle, over 7 years old.

Then, I had an epiphany (yes, I wiki'd that.)

I never wear socks.

Maybe it's the rebellious teenager in me who says "No, Mom! I can wear flip flops in the snow!" Or maybe I just don't have any of those fancy little short socks that don't show in your booties. Either way, I'm just glad I'm not running a fever after all.

Now, for the moment you've all been waiting's GIVEAWAY TIME!
Christmas is exactly 12 days away! Today's gift is brought to you by the adorable Bloom Studio and Gifts!
This lovely Voluspa candle smells delish, and comes with an adorable box of matches that would look chic left out on a fireplace mantle. This prize would make a great stocking stuffer, and don't forget about those lovely ladies in your life that deserve a special treat---teachers, stylists, babysitters and dog walkers!

The ladies at Bloom are very dear to my heart. Michaelyn's shop is filled with unique treasures, and tons of handmade finds! Shop local this Christmas with Bloom Studio and Gifts!
