KELLYMACLILAC TURNS ONE

We are celebrating turning one! Bring on the decorations, celebrations, cake and (of course) presents! Last year when I launched my first post (see it here) I was more afraid than a toddler in a haunted house!  But thanks to many forms of encouragement and some delusional bravery, the blog was started.

HOW TO CELEBRATE

Like the old saying “everything is coming up roses”, the blog has grounded me and blossomed into something extremely positive. But unlike the saying, there were tough times (regular life and the dreaded mono to name a few) and the simple fact that I don’t like roses.  Nix that- I love the flower but not the products that are produced via the elegant plant.

So, to celebrate KML turning one…I figure we give away some presents!!! No rose presents of course. Then what you may ask? Well, lets focus on my favorite things throughout this year. And then mix in the summer vibe to make things interesting!

LEMONS

My favorite sugar scrub is Beedandy’s.  I have loved every scent I have tried to the point where I’m a bit obsessed.  Read all about it here. For summer, I am having a bit of an affair with the lemon scented scrub.  It’s fresh, it’s clean and invigorating. Best of all- it’s made of natural ingredients.  Go here and get one ASAP.

My favorite book of the year is The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Ok, so admittedly there’s no lemon reference (if anything this belongs in a strawberry post) that I can weave in, but I simply cannot not mention it.  Read all about it here. I gush for days- and it’s literally (wink, wink) the first book I recommend when someone approaches me with the “I need a good Kelly what should I read” question.

My favorite cupcake is…wait for it- yup lemon.  And there is this awesome bakery around me that makes them (and a gazillion other goodies) superbly. Here is the link to Katheryn’s Confections.  What better way to celebrate right?

Blend all my favorite together and you may start to understand the KML Birthday Giveaway.

THE GIVEAWAY

I’m giving away a Beedandy’s Lemon Scrub, The Hating Game and a gift certificate to Katheryn’s Confections where you can get any cupcake your little heart desires (but I suggest the Lemon one).

I know, it’s the trifecta of gifts!  I’m giddy with excitement. So here’s how to enter this fun contest!

    HBD KML! I’ve been silently working my way through all your book suggestions and fav authors this year. Whenever I’m ready for something new I look to your blog first. Thank you for reintroducing me to reading for pleasure. It’s a part of my life that I’ve been missing.
