My favourite things….. giveaway

Last night I hosted an oscar party with the ever fabulous Jacqueline from the JAC of all trades.  I will definitely blog about the whole evening, but today I’m just going to share one of my favourite parts.

Everyone was to bring their favourite $20 luxury beauty product and the winners from the oscar ballot contest would go home with all the loot!

I loved seeing what everyone brought, different products that you never would have used or chosen before~ everything from boutique hand lotion, to night cream, makeup.

That had me thinking of my favourite things and how when something works for you and you love it you just want to share them with friends.  I feel so fortunate to have a small platform that people actually read, lol.  I’m always surprised when I’m out and about and someone will mention having read something on my blog (and that it’s not my Mum or bestfriend!)

So in the spirit of “my favourite things” and wanting to say thank you to all my lovely and faithful blog readers I would love to giveaway one of my favourite!

If you read my post last week you’ll be familiar with this cookbook.  My ever-so-smart sister gave me the first one and I instantly fell in love, the recipes are delicious and are only made better by the beautiful photography!  I have since collected all three :)

I am excited to give away Whitewater Cooks with Friends to one reader.

So now for the fine print :)

Only two steps!

1~ “like” my facebook page

2~ leave a comment on this post with your favourite movie title

Bonus entries

1~ update your facebook status with my giveaway, then come back and post again that you shared.

contest closes Wednesday evening and I’ll post the randomly chosen winner Thursday morning.

    Hi Leslie!! I don’t have this one yet. And besides, I haven’t commented on here in a while to you how amazing I think you are :)

    Oh man, what a TOUGH question!! I have sooo many favourites, but the one that pops to the top of my mind right now is Bridesmaids. I could watch it over and over and over again. I’m so excited about this giveaway because I don’t have this cookbook! It would complete my collection :)

    My favourite movie…I think one of my all time favourites is Great Expectations with Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow. I just love it and I have watched it far too many times to count!

  7. Jennilyn says:

    I Liked your facebook page and re-shared the info with everyone I know!! I love cooking. Adam and I have been watching Pitchin’ In and have decided to “think outside the box” a bit more with our cooking. I love using cookbooks and finding new recipes, but sometimes it’s tough to find the time to do something new. I’m always happy to do it when I find something fantastic!

    I have loved many movies but unfortunalty my memory is short:) so I have to go with what I have most recently seen “the Vow”
    I am not much for sappy movies but I also loved the
    Notebook”" because it reminded me so much of the love that my granparents had for each other.

  9. Tina says:

    One of my favourite movies of all-time is Harold and Maude :D.

  10. Cindy says:

    Of course i love your fb who doesn’t!!!!!!!!!
    Cooking …what Lahaise lady doesn’t love to cook?????I have never heard of this cookbook so i would love to sit and learn from it.
    Movie….Notebook….One day i would love to find someone and be in love that much and to have someone love me back that much!!!!

  11. Tracey says:

    Wow, this is a tough question as I rarely watch movies besides kid’s ones-LOL. Besides Tangled, Cars and Aladin, I would have to say First Knight (Sean Connery & Richard Gere)sticks into my head. I watched it several times many years ago and it still one that I think would enjoy watching today.

    Hi Leslie! I just recently found out that my chiropractor here in Edson is good friends with your husband, small world! I love your photos, my favourite movie would have to be 27 Dresses!!

  13. Leslie says:

    Small world, must be Mark? Lol I’ll definitely have to tell Jaimie :)

    ps~ LOVE 27 dresses!!

  14. Stacey says:

    I have two favourite movies that I could watch again and again. “P.S. I Love You” and “Love Actually.” Both of them are very heartwarming and touching.

  15. Jessie says:

    Yes it is Mark!!!

  16. LaceyL says:

    Again… That is a very tough decision. I would have to say “Pretty Women”! One of my all time favorites!! Good luck everyone!!

    Seeing as I have tasted many of the dishes you have made from the White Water Cooks recipe books, I’d love to own one! That way, when I finally get my own place, I can have you over for dinner instead!!

    My favourite movie: it’s too hard to name just one, so I’ll name a few: The Party, Dumb & Dumber, Space Balls, Indiana Jones (all of them) and just because it’s so fabulous, The Notebook.
