$50 Picket Fence Boutique Gift Card Giveaway

I am so excited to feature a new giveaway, sponsored by The Picket Fence.

If you haven’t heard of The Picket Fence, you’re in for a treat! This baby clothes boutique features the most adorable items for littles ones. I love the outfits, accessories, bedding, toys, bags, and shoes. (Since August is the most popular month for births, now is a good time to stock up on newborn presents.)

In addition to the Baby collection, there is a section for Kids, Women, Home, and gifts with a Pittsburgh theme (where the boutique is based). Aren’t these votives incredible? Mixing and matching an assortment is such a nice touch.

Every item is carefully selected to ensure the highest quality. The unique, contemporary designs are definitely a cut above the cookie-cutter things that many chains carry. Anyone searching for a one-of-a-kind gift will be pleased.

One winner will receive a $50.00 Gift Card, good for anything in the boutique. The giveaway is open thru 6/30/17. Good luck!

Decorative Jewish Pillow Giveaway

Homes serve a function for the families that live in them, but I think they should also be a place of beauty. Choosing the right combination of paint, furniture, and curtains can certainly turn a dull room into a haven.

While most folks don’t have the desire—or the budget—to redo their entire home from top to bottom, investing in a few well-chosen, high quality pieces can be transformative. The easiest (and most affordable) place to start is with an accessory.

I absolutely love decorative pillows! My couch is mint green and so many other shades compliment it. In the past, I’ve used striped pillows, pink pillows, and green/blue dotted pillows as an accent. Each of these looks was fun while it lasted and when I got sick of the designs, or the pillows became worn out, it was no big loss to replace them.

Solid colors and patterns are great, but any time I can incorporate Judaica, that’s a bonus! Unlike most other pieces of Judaica, a decorative pillow can be enjoyed often. It won’t tarnish, it won’t break, and it’s used daily, not just for a special occasion.

Hamsa Hamsa, a Tel Aviv based company that features clothing, jewelry, accessories, and home décor items, makes some of the most adorable pillows I’ve ever seen! They offer 14 different styles to choose from, with a little something for everyone.

I’d certainly enjoy any of their original creations, but two, in particular, really speak to me: Love and Amen. The unique designs have both English and Hebrew writing, sturdy construction, and thick, durable fabric that can withstand constant commotion from kids and dogs.

They would make a lovely addition to a couch, a bed, or a chair, and the neutral colors work well for men and women alike (my hubby is always complaining about “fussy” and “girly” accessories I pick out, but he loves these pillows!).

Hamsa Hamsa has generously offered to make them available for a giveaway. One winner will receive the decorative pillow of their choice (Love or Amen). Entries will be open thru 6/11/17. Good luck!

One Fresh Cup Coffee & Tea Giveaway

Most of us would never think of starting the day without a cup—or two!—of good, strong coffee. Personally, I can barely open my eyes without some. While I love to drink it, the coffee-making process can be so annoying. Some mornings, I’m simply too tired to deal with measuring and scooping, and what should be an easy task, turns into a disaster!

It’s kind of embarrassing to admit how many times I’ve done it wrong. I’ve used too much and overfilled the cup with grounds, used too little and it was barely more than colored water, and, worst of all, filled my machine with too-hot water and exploded everything onto the counter!

Sure, I could just stick to buying coffee in a shop, but that’s not always convenient, nor is it affordable. What I want is a goof-proof product that I can make in my own kitchen or office. Finding One Fresh Cup was like a dream come true.

This unique product is a simple, quick, and mess-free way to brew single servings, minus the guess work and hassle of using a traditional machine or K-cups.

Curious how One Fresh Cup works? All it takes are three steps:

1. Unpack and remove the filter bag.

2. Tear along the dotted line to open the filter, then place it
onto an 8 ounce coffee cup, secured by the built-in hangers.

3. Slowly pour boiling water into the filter in small, circular intervals.

Sure, we can all agree it’s easy to make, but you’re probably wondering how it tastes. In a word: remarkable! One Fresh Cup offers only premium blends, sourced from the world’s most famous coffee regions. Meticulously roasted and exceptionally fresh, they are delicious. Because I enjoy mixing it up, the variety pack, with 5 different flavors is my favorite, and I love knowing that everything is certified Kosher.

Each Variety Pack includes 10 individual packs of these gourmet delights:

  • Gayo (Sumatra)
  • Sidamo (Ethiopia)
  • Cerrado (Brazil)
  • French Roast (Indonesia/Africa)
  • Decaf (Colombia)

Prefer tea to coffee? One Fresh Cup offers a lovely assortment of Mint and Lavender, made from high-quality Chinese Oolong. Brewed with the same innovative single-serve filter, the teas can be enjoyed hot or cold. I really enjoy having a chilled cup of Mint, while I prefer the Lavender served hot.

As for cost, it couldn’t be more reasonable. A single cup is only $1.50—a quarter of what I’ve paid at a “gourmet” coffee shop for something that didn’t taste half as good. These delicious drinks are available for order online at Every order receives FREE shipping to the contiguous 48 states and using coupon code TJL10 at checkout will save an additional 10% off!

Ready to “Pour, Set, Tear” your way to an incredible cup of coffee or tea? I’m so excited to offer a giveaway. Two winners will receive 4 boxes of One Fresh Cup—Two Coffee Variety Packs and Two Tea Variety Packs.
