Day 6: Favorite Things

Today is the next to last day for Favorite Things. I DON’T WANT IT TO STOP!! Thanks so much to everyone who has subscribe and  left sweet comments. It’s been a blast reading all of them. You guys are the best!!!

Don’t forget there is still a little time left enter to win. The details and “rules” are at the bottom of each post!  Day 1 | Day 2 |Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5 


Today’s FAVORITE THING is a pair of Tom’s. I LOVE my Tom’s. They’re so comfy– I wear them at least a couple of times a week. I was first introduced to Tom’s several years back just like the rest of the world. Blake’s mission and story behind developing Tom’s is what truly made me want a pair, not particularly the product. If you aren’t familiar with the Tom’s brand their mission is simple, One for One. For every pair of shoes bought, they send a pair to a child in another country. The few  years they have been in business, they have sent shoes to more than 60 different countries. Tom’s doesn’t only shoes, they recently launched a eyewear line and when you buy TOMS Eyewear, you’re helping restore sight. They have provided dozens and dozens of glasses to individuals in over 16 countries.

I hope that gives you a better reasoning as to why I chose Tom’s as one of my 2013 Favorite Things. If you want to find out more about their company, visit their website. Also check out Blake’s book, “Start Something That Matters”. It’s a great read!


I had someone ask and I wanted to clear the air, I will not be giving away a pair of my personal Tom’s. If you win, you will receive your very own pair in your size. 😉

    Many of my friends have a pair….and I still don’t, not sure why — maybe I’ve been waiting to win some!

Am definitely going to try making a Christmas jar. will use Museum Wax to keep the lid on and to attach it to the coffee table so the cats can’t knock it over.

  23. I subscribed. I love my one pair of Toms and I love his mission too. Makes you wonder how many other vendors could do the same if they tried….thanks for offering the giveaway!
