Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Georgetown Cupcake

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Holiday, Holiday Gift Guide 2012 | Leave a comment

Georgetown cupcake holiday Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Georgetown CupcakeIn 2010 when I was pregnant with Westley, I craved cupcakes. So right before I gave birth, my sister – who lives in DC – told me that she would be bringing me a dozen cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, to celebrate. I was excited to finally meet my little man, but I was also absolutely giddy about getting my taste buds all over those cupcakes.

Long story short: I had a C-section which left me with little to no appetite for a few days post-surgery. I didn’t want the cupcakes to go to waste, so I offered them to my friends and family who visited me in the hospital and kept one for myself – and after my appetite returned, I devoured what was quite possibly the BEST.CUPCAKE.EVER.

So when I was putting together Spoiled Pretty’s Holiday Gift Guide 2012, I immediately thought of Georgetown Cupcake. The cupcakes are $2.75 each, $15 for a half dozen and $29 for a dozen. If you don’t live near one of their five bakery locations (D.C.; Bethesda, MD; N.Y.C.; Boston; and L.A.), you can have them shipped to your doorstep (as long as you’re within the Continental U.S.).

Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Carol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio

Carols Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Carols Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence TrioCarol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio is the gift for that vanilla lover in your life. I, myself, am a vanilla fiend. It’s my absolute favorite fragrance. But I have a discerning nose. Not all confection-scented beauty products are created equal and many are downright amateur and juvenile. Carol’s Daughter, on the other hand, does vanilla justice and offers some of the most elegant and inspired takes on the classic scent.

“Vanilla is one of my favorite notes to work with; it blends so beautifully with almost anything. Vanilla is warm and loving and conjures up happy thoughts, and at the same time it can add a subtle sensuality to a scent. Included in this set are two of our most popular vanilla fragrances from the past few years and an exciting new vanilla.” —Lisa Price, Founder of Carol’s Daughter

Carol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio in Joy Box includes:

  • 4 oz. Sugar-Dipped Vanilla Body Cream (notes of water lily, vanilla and cotton candy)
  • 4 oz. Vanilla Petals Body Cream (notes of French marshmallow, soft florals and vanilla)
  • 4 oz. Vanilla Truffle Body Cream (notes of creamy vanilla, white chocolate and turbinado sugar) CONTINUE READING
