#ad #GiftThemJoy + have fun & win at the Cost Plus @worldmarket Golden​ ​Llama​ ​Treasure​ ​Hunt​! #worldmarkettribe

This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market. I am a Cost Plus World Market Blogger Brand Ambassador and member of #WorldMarketTribe all opinions are my own.

Earlier this year I got to have some major fun hosting workshops at the Cost Plus World Market Retail location in Brooklyn, New York, I hosted an Easter Treat Jars Workshop and a Children's Story Time Event in honor of National Library Month. (If you missed those click HERE to read up on it), one of the books I read was Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney and that set me off on a Llama obsession that is definitely carrying over to the holidays thanks to Cost Plus World Market!

If you didn't get to attend one of the totally fun workshops at your nearest Cost Plus World Market, I have got a great reason for you to RUN not walk to your nearest location starting TODAY! To find your nearest store check out the store locator page HERE.

While the New York City/Manhattan location (620 Sixth Avenue, New York, NY 10011) is closer to me, the workshops I conducted were held in the Brooklyn location (850 Third Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11232), but our friends at Cost Plus World Market have a super unique program that launches today that gives you the chance to win great prizes just for visiting the store, it's called the Golden Llama Treasure Hunt Program, www.worldmarket.com/hunt, check out the video below for more info:

As you know I am a World Market Tribe Member/Blogger Brand Ambassador, which means I get the chance to post clues as to where to find the Golden Llama on my social channels DAILY through November 22nd. So be sure you are already following Ascending Butterfly on Twitter and Facebook where I will be sharing the clues, today's clue will also be posted in this blog post!

I am all about the Holiday Llama-Rama at Cost Plus World Market right now and between the Llama Ornaments, Llama Lamp, Llama Art/Llama Pictures, and even a cute Stuffed Llama there is a little Llama love for pretty much everyone on your list, and check out my slideshow below to see some of the Llama items on my holiday wish list! Leave it to me to find the perfect gift for the Llama lover who also loves Wine. Ahem, like ME!!!! And don't forget the Llama Llama Holiday Drama Picture Book.

I am torn between all these picks and think I need them all in my life. Those Llama Wine Charms are EVERYTHING and I need those for my holiday wine tastings and Wine Wednesday posts. I also really get into Gingerbread scented products at this time of the year so those soaps are totally up my alley. (I have a candle that I am super obsessed with that I really need to share about! But I will save that for another post.)

I need to fill that "Save the Drama For Your Llama" mug with hot chocolate (ok so it might be spiked with something, don't judge me!) and fill out those Holiday Llama Cards, hang that cute stocking, then put on that super cute Gray Cable Knit Llama Scarf and hit my nearest Cost Plus World Market to find the Golden Llama, and then come home to a glass of wine with my Wine Charm on it, and take a long bath using that Gingerbread Soap while perusing the picture book!

Ready for Clue #1?


Above: Golden Llama Treasure Hunt Clue #1: "Golden Llama Where Are You? Hiding Next To Something Blue."

 My Take:

Don't you just love my Wish List slideshow?

I think I am going to make one of these every year, and on my birthday, and on valentine's day too!

I am going to go Llama crazy this holiday season, how can you resist any animal that looks like it is smiling/happy? I think it's why I also like Sloths, looking at them always makes me smile. And aren't the holidays all about surrounding yourself with things that make you smile?

And because I know many of you will ask, NO, I do NOT know where the Llama is hiding, I have the clues my butterflies, but you need to hunt for it to get the reward.

Visit Cost Plus World Market, (warning: this is an affiliate link so if you shop using this link you will be supporting my Llama habit!) then come back here and let me know which of the Llama products (or other Christmas Items!)would you most want Santa to slip into YOUR stocking this year and why? And if you visit your local store and find the Llama, please tag me on twitter and let me know! (@Tracy_Iglesias or @Ascending1)

    1. @Sara I think it is super smart to use a savvy digital campaign to drive traffic to their brick and mortar locations. I personally love online shopping for quick comparisons particularly price and to read product reviews, but I get most inspired, particularly when it comes to home and room redecorating projects by visiting the stores for ideas, inspiration and decorative touches.
