GIVEAWAY! Hoot-n-Andy

If your a follower of the blog, then you saw that last week for Favorites Friday, we featured an AWESOME shop called Hoot-n-Andy... I dont even know where to begin... because the handpainted awesome-ness pouring out of this shop is totally overwhelming. So lets start small and work our way up... with my personal favorites :)
#1: The tattoo mommy/daddy yo-yo... This bad boy will be gracing Izzaq's stocking with its presence this year. How could I pass it up!? And crazy enough, Izzaq asked santa for a yo-yo... so, we will be yo-yo-ing in style at the Zrust house ;) Just $9

#2: Memory Games! We loveeeeeee memory games... but never have I ever come across one as amazing as this...  We will have 2 of these under the tree this year... one for each kiddo... a guitar themed one, and a tattoo one (like the above mommy/daddy yo-yo)... Why keep buying those cheap-o cardboard games when you can have something quality that will last you generations and generations...


#3: Nesting BlocksEach set comes with 4 blocks, complete with letters, numbers, bright patterns, and of course- cute, skeleton animals! Im in love... I need another baby so I can get these... cuz they are ADORABLE!


#4: And last but DEFINITELY not least... if anything, THE BEST.... the "Rockin' Horses" or... "Rocking Horses of a Different Color" if you Jenny :) Either way, I think we can all agree to call them amazing. HAve you ever seen such a classic toy with a twist?! Im in love... and would be willing to sell a kidney to get that tattoo one...

Im really truly just in love... Her things are amazing... the detail that she puts into them is flawless... and she went above and beyond to be sure she was using baby/toddler safe materials... and guess what... you get to see for yourself... One lucky winner will get their hands on a CUSTOM memory game... shoot any theme her way, and she will make it happen... guitars? sure! Punk? No problem! Flowers? Rainbows? Cars? Butterflies? Owls? Trains? You betcha! Ok... well, you get the picture... any custom memory set you can dream up.

Favorites Friday.... on Tuesday :) Vinyls

This week... totally random theme, but with the big move coming I have been planning new decor... and i am loving all these vinyl wall stickers... and having a REALLY hard time picking a couple cuz I want them all, but fear that would just look silly, lol On the flip side... vinyls are great for condo living where you can't paint... they are easy to take down... but still add personality. So here are some of the themes we have picked out for the new place...
Living Room: Traditional Tattoos... found some cool sailor Jerry flash canvases with pinups... anchors, etc. way cool. Lots of Reds, Creams & Browns..
Master Bedroom: its all done in the Damask Rock fabric... red curtains, and I bought some awesome tin stars w/ damask here on etsy to coordinate... SO excited..
Master Bathroom: Old Hollywood... bought some Marilyn Monroe & Audrey Hepburn art... then made a few cute pieces myself!
Boys room... Pirates!
And we still have a lonnnng way to go, lol... Any ideas!? Id love to hear what you guys think... how do you feel about Vinyls? Cute? Cheesy?
(click photo to enlarge)


#1: CreativeWalls: Cherry Blossoms... Im LOVING these... maybe in the kitchen? That could be cute :)
#2: ExpressingYou: Damask Monogram... I think a nice big "Z" could be cool in the bedroom...
#3: Xpresivdesigns: I like the idea of this James Dean Quote in the "holly wood bathroom"
#4: GreyWoldGraphics: Sewing Border... TOTALLY would be adorable in the sewing office above the window :)
#5: Beepart: Swallows.... Im like 90% sure these are a must have above the fireplace.... We bought a metal anchor, and i think it would be cool in between them...
#6: BubbaAndDoodle: awe... we NEEED these for the boys room for sure!
#7: BeePart: Sugar Skull... have NO idea where this would go, but I LOVE it...
#8: FreckledHound: Pirate LIfe... think this one would be SUPER cute in the boys' pirate room :)
#9: VerdigrisDye: Buttons.... Im also 90% sure that I need these in the office to go with my "stoopidgerl" prints.

Newest giveaway: Punk Medics Vegan Travel Set

Alrighty - now how cool is this.
Punk Medics has always been an awesome advertiser for the blog...
You can see their icon in the side bar almost ALWAYS...
When I first saw their icon, I was totally drawn in...
I had to see what they were all about...
and what I found was awesome...
They are a bunch of Canadians hand making VEGAN skin care products.
I had to try it...
and lucky for me they wanted to let me...
and lucky for you they were into the idea of a giveaway!
YAY-ness all around...


They make everything from Shampoo & conditioner...
to face wash... body wash... and every "area" in between...
Now, another thing that totally amazed me...
was their line of tattoo/piercing care...
I have never seen anything like this before...
Leave it to Punk Medics to find their niche.
The have an Organic Jewelry Cleaner...
A Vegan Piercing Care Spray...
and a Tattoo Barrier Cream for healing in a tattoo.
And best of all... does anyone reading this have stretched lobes?
I do... and lets be honest... no matter how hard i try to keep them clean...
they always smell weird... bluh.
But Punk Medics has the solution...
They have this awesome Holey Butt'r Balm...

"Holey Butt'r is a premium ear care crème to maintain stretched ear lobes...
Contains a natural blend of emollients and moisturizers including:
Karanja oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, and Soy wax."
It has all the good stuff our smelly lobes need to stay fresh, hahahaha...

Got Road Rash?
They have you covered there too with their Skid Top balm & spray...
"SkidStop Spray is an all vegan antiseptic wash that cleanses
and soothes road rash without stinging. An organic plant extract,
with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and analgesic properties."


Now - guess what...
I HAVE GREAT NEWS!!
They sent me two of their super rad travel sets...
one for me and one for you!

Its a 5 pack of their:
Body Wash, Conditioning Shampoo, Leave in Conditioner, Facial Cleanser, Body Lotion
What more could I need on my getaway?
It is valued at $20 for the set, or $25 if you were to buy all of them separately.

Now, as much as I would love to say - I tried it all, I can't...
But I sniff it often :)
We have our honeymoon coming up in a few weeks and i HAVE to save it till then.
It smells so wonderful... and looks so awesome...
and is packaged into perfect travel/airplane friendly tubes...
When we get back Ill be sure to post all the awesome details :)

How do you win, you ask?
