21 Days of Giveaways

In lieu of a traditional gift guide like we’ve done in the past, Zelda and I wanted to do something special this year for our readers to say thank you for helping us take Glitter and Bubbles to the next level, and for supporting us throughout this journey. Over the past year you’ve followed our adventures and seen our latest product obsessions, and now it’s your chance to experience them too.

For the next 21 days we have giveaways from all of our favorites. You’ll see some of my go-to’s, like Clarins and Long Tall Sally, plus some of Zelda’s like Windy City Bebe. In the summer Swissotel helped us throw Zelda the most insane birthday party I could ever have dreamt up, and now for our grand prize they are helping us spread some holiday magic. So get ready, mark your calendars and check back daily because for the next 21 days it’s all about you!

21 days of giveaways on Glitter and Bubbles.


Win a stay in the Santa Suite at the Swissotel Chicago.



Growing up I always dreamed of having the perfect Christmas morning just like Kevin McAllister did in Home Alone, waking up in a hotel suite with my family there, and the room filled to the brim with everything holiday. Swissotel’s Santa Suite is the closest thing to that, and I can tell you dreams do come true! You and your family can experience this too because we are giving away an exclusive one night stay* in the Santa Suite for the 2018 Christmas season!

Your stay will kick off with bites, sweet treats, a hot chocolate bar and a bottle of champagne. Santa will take a break from his duties and give your crew a private visit, and the next morning your family will have breakfast at Swissotel’s Geneva restaurant. This is seriously a dream come true, and the ultimate holiday experience!

Valued at $1,500.00.

Two Tickets to the Swissotel Holiday Dinner: This year Swissotel will be hosting their first ever pop-up dinner during the holiday season, A Winter’s Eve. It will be a two course progressive style dining experience, featuring decorative bites and delectable dishes inspired by their Santa Suite. After dinner the guests will enjoy a special nightcap and dessert in their exclusive Santa Suite overlooking downtown Chicago and the holiday lights.

This exclusive dinner has extremely limited seating and is only open to 46 guests. It will be benefiting the SOS Children’s Villages Illinois, a nonprofit that serves children in foster care and at risk youth in some of Chicago’s highest crime neighborhoods. Tickets are $100 per guest ($15 of that price will be donated to SOS Children’s Villages Illinois) and can be purchased here.

Win a giveaway for a kids Weber Grill for the holiday.


Weber Grill: By far one of the most popular toys in our house is the Weber Kettle Grill. Yes you read that correctly, Zelda is a grill master. It doesn’t matter what room we’re in, the kettle follows us. Your babes are guaranteed to love this kettle grill set, and when it’s wrapped it makes for a jumbo gift under the tree — what kid doesn’t love that?! And parents, you’ll love that it’s under $50.

Weber Kettle Grill Set is valued at $44.99

Please note that Weber provided me this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

Ao Skincare Retinal: Coming out of 2017 I feel like we are all a little fatigued, and could use some rejuvenation. When it comes to skincare it’s so important to know what you’re actually putting on your skin and search for the purest ingredients possible.  If you’ve been looking for a good retinal you know it can be super scary to shop for. I’ve been testing this one by Ao Skincare for 60 days and give it the green light!

Win a $150 Pearachute gift card.


$150 Pearachute Gift Card: Being a working parent, my schedule can be extremely hectic, so my time has become more valuable than ever. I love nothing more than meaningful experiences with Zelda, and Pearachute makes finding drop-in classes easy and stress free. So if I find I have an afternoon open, I just get into the app and find out what’s available for us to do that day at a time that works for us. They always have something for you to do, even when you feel like nothing is out there. I also love that it  lets us explore Zelda’s interests without committing to a week long class only to find out she hates it. One more thing, rumor has it there will be Pearachute-only holiday experiences this season, including Polar Express tickets!

$150.00 value.

Win Cate & Levi Puppets


Three Cate and Levi Hand Puppets: While screen time can definitely have its benefits, getting babes away from the blue light to actively use their imagination is vital. I love the old school, nostalgic vibe of hand puppets, and I really love that they don’t take up space in my house like an army of stuffed animals does! An added bonus is that Cate and Levi’s wool hand puppets are made from recycled materials, so you can spread some Christmas cheer to the babes on your list and do your part for the planet too.

One wool Santa puppet | One wool Unicorn puppet | One wool Moose puppet
