Cyber Monday HUGE giveaway!

This FFMOO post is a Fashionista Event. I was provided a promotional item by to inform you of their crazy insane Cyber Monday Sales, Cyper Monday giveaway and our Cyber Monday $500 giveaway.

When you think of holiday shopping does this come to mind?
 Each year I find myself trying to fight the crowds and decided last year that I would rather be doing this instead of freezing my keister off looking for a sale!
Now we all know that shopping online can be just as exhausting...through the years you have heard me talk about many of the great deals I have found to stretch my budget to the max! This year my must buys will include a pair of toms for my niece and the never ending list of toys including doc mcstuffins talking Stuffy and talking Lambie. Have you seen any great deals?

I love that most stores have started the online buzz early and I have seen some great Cyber Monday Sales! Anyone have any electronics on their list? is hosting a Cyber Monday Sweepstakes where they are giving away a $500 Amazon gift card-how amazing would that be to win just in time for the holiday season? You can enter the giveaway here-I would love to see one of my amazing readers win and have the best holiday surprise. I cannot wait to get my 15% off toms and some clothes for my niece. Look at this amazing Aeropostle deal: 50% off everything and free shipping on anything over $75. There are so many ways to save this season I am sure I will come in under budget!

In addition to the $500 amazing prize I will be hosting my own fantastic Cyber Monday Giveaway with some lovely ladies that includes two $250 gift cards to Amazon. That is right-you could be one of two lucky winners-just enter using the rafflecopter form below. Good luck to everyone!

Best Organic Cookies!

Hi Everyone! Sorry for the absence we have been traveling and fighting the flu. As promised I will be posting even more organic recipes and ideas moving forward. Anyone catch Dr. Oz yesterday about the gmo's and pesticides in our food?

Here is the best cookie recipe I have ever tasted:


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose organic flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) organic butter, softened (I melt in the microwave)
  • 3/4 cup  organic cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed organic brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large  organic eggs
  • 2 cups Best Life Mini Chocolate Chips 

Preheat oven to 375 and wait for the oven to beep-so important so the cookies come out perfect! This recipe also makes a ton of dough so we split into 3 and put in the freezer for later. The tiny chocolate chips are best because they spread out and are to die for delicious! 

Combine all in a bowl and cook for 8-10 minutes. I pull out at 8 minutes and let sit on the hot stove to cool so they can settle and cook a little more. Enjoy-finally a cookie I feel good about feeding my daughter!
