Vincent Van Gogh said “…and what is done in love, is well done”; and this applies to the carefully constructed knits from Midwest Crochet. Founder “Crochet” Michele left a career in television to pursue her 30 year passion for crochet. The results of that transition are colorful, cozy, and sturdy scarves, hats, and ponchos. Her designs are worn and loved by the likes of Kristen Johnston, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile. In fact you have seen her magnificent cowl neck scarf (a staple in my own wardrobe) on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I get compliments each time I wear a Midwest Crochet design. Right now get 20% off at midwestcrochet.com and crochetconcepts.etsy.com with code TBB2014 through December 20th. Please note, because Michele’s designs are handmade, orders must be placed before 12/5/14 to be shipped in time for Christmas delivery. Any order placed after 12/5 will ship after 1/1/15.

Wrap Someone Up This Holiday Season!

If it’s not obvious, I get some pretty cool stuff for being TBB‘s Editor in Chief. Of all the Housewife Hot Items I’ve been swagged with, however, there are few I use as often as my Wrapadoo. The creation of Cynthia Saito, Wrapadoo is a favorite among the Housewives of Orange County and Miami. Made of a soft fleece outer shell and terry inner lining,  Wrapadoo wicks away moisture from wet hair while comfortably staying in place. No more wrestling with a “towel turban.” And they are so glam that we are sure even Lea Black would approve, after all she is the reigning HW queen of turbans and Wrapadoo has the seal of approval from fancy pants Heather Dubrow. The best part, Wrapadoo keeps soft wash after wash, so feel free to do your makeup with it on!

Saito’s Wrapadoo products were featured on Tamra’s OC Wedding. This month we will giveaway Wrapadoo gift cards to our commenters. Use your card for the original Wrapadoo, or put it towards one of the other products on the Wrapadoo website! All you have to do is keep reading TBB, which we know you do anyway, and tell us how you feel in the comments section! Comments are counted up and then a number is randomly chosen. The more you comment the greater your chance of winning! Not sure what to say? No problem, just tell us below that you “want a Wrapadoo” and we will count that too! Your email is safe and will never be shared or sold. So chat with us and get ready to win and shop Wrapadoo.com this holiday season!
