  1. What a great necklace! My fave girly treat is a bubble bath – along with glass of wine, some Enya, candles, and a good book, of course!

  2. My favorite girly thing to do is play dress up with my 3 year old and have tea parties or eat one of her imaginary soups – currently she makes doodle berry soup and it is the best soup EVER! πŸ™‚

  3. Since I do nails I would say my biggest girlie treat is a great new book or magazine and a bowl of ice cream. I have a 7 month old baby girl so it’s hard to find the time for myself so I steal minutes away when I can to recharge the batteries.
    I LOVE your blog and you are an inspiration to look at life through new eyes!

  4. Oh goodness, probably smores outside on a summer night just chatting with my girls, being loud silly and getting to eat devilishly good snacks.

  5. My favorite girly treat is to watch a sappy movie on a rainy afternoon. While eating chocolate and sipping a Diet Coke. Ahh… bliss. Your jewelry is gorgeous!

  6. oops!

    I forgot to add my favorite girly treat!

    A girlie treat for me is making cupcakes with my niece then watching a chick flick. xx

  9. My favorite girlie treat is getting to eat edy’s girl scout thin mint ice cream after all my boys have gone to bed! Ok so it’s not a huge girlie treat but it’s my alone time every night that I look forward too!

  10. Oh, I love so many girly treats! Eating Oreo balls(or anything really yummy and chocolaty!)while watching chick flicks with great girl friends. Talking to those same great girl friends late into the night about anything and everything. Jewelry. Fancy hairstyles. Picking up a baby and cuddling just because I CAN. Thinking up tons of wonderful names for my own little babies when I have them. Lots lots wonderful things!! β™₯

  11. Hi, not sure I left a post, I tried to see if I did, not trying to cheat. Anyway, my favorite girly thing is a pedicure with a stimulating leg massage. I have neuropathy and it relieves the pain in my legs, unfortunately I can’t afford a ped as much as I like. Would love, love, love, to win the chandelier pendant with my beloved grandson’s name on it, he is the light in my life (besides my sweetie, husband Dan. Thanks, your work is GREAT!

  16. My fave girlie treat is just time with my bff WITHOUT the hubby and kids! We rarely get this in the evening, so when we can somehow manage it, we enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of tea, and just sit on the couch or outside where we can see the stars…this is when we can really unwind and re group!

  17. Seeing the faces of my grandkids, a new one was born this week and another one is due to be here on Tuesday! Life is Good!

  18. Treats-going out for a bagel and latte. That is luxury for me. Loved your site, thinking of a Mother’s Day gift for my daughter in law. Have to pick just the right one.

Ahhh….

  50. Hi Lisa!
    oh dear…my favortie girlie treat??!!! It must be the latest copy of Somerset Living Magazine while soaking in a bubble bath…
    L O V E the new necklace!!!!
    xoShari from Idaho

  51. I hope I’m not to late to enter the giveaway! I love the new necklace! My favorite girlie treat is antique shopping and splurging on vintage jewelry!

  52. A day with my daughter at Sephora and The Cheesecake Factory. It’s a little “feel good” ritual we do about 4 times a year now that my daughter is grown. We have the best day!

  53. Since my girlfriends live alittle too far to get together very often, I would say getting together with them, to (take you pick), go on a trip, shopping, scrapbooking, or just lunch together. Life is full, but more fun with friends!

  54. My fav would be lunch with my friends!!! Nothing better then girl talk. So glad Heidi introduced me to your site. Love it.!!!

  55. My favorite girlie treat is window shopping…I can have anything I want, see all the new trends, dream of how much fun it would be to own them…and then go home without having spent a dime.

  56. I really have to choose one? Okay, I think that a QUIET bubble bath with a good book. I have 2 small boys and it is the ONLY time I get some peace (for at least 15 minutes)

  57. Favorite girly treat…to really take the time to go for it and get away with some friends…the extended time away, like a weekend or part of a week really allows you to let your hair down, relax, have time for fun activities that take awhile, like scrapbooking or a long board game….but most importantly, to get real and transparent with each other like you can when you are out of your usual routine.

  58. My favorite treat is champagne and dancing with my girlfriends. It happens very seldom, but when it does, we all have smiles on our faces that just can’t be replicated any other way. The best is when it’s at one of our weddings!

    I think this new design is my new favorite Lisa Leonard Designs treat!

  59. The best girlie treat is lunch and a mani/pedi with my girlfriends….. well, and of course a delicious chocolate brownie never hurt anyone. πŸ™‚

  60. I love, love, love the new design! My favorite girly treat is simply having alone time with a girlfriend. I am the only girl in a life full of boys! I have three sons and four big brothers, anything girly is good for me. {laughing}


  61. I am one woman in a house of men and boys, so my favorite ‘girlie’ thing to do is spend a few hours with a favorite girlfriend. We talk, shop, enjoy a latte, and generally just get our ‘girl-fix’. By the end of the day, I am ready to come home to all my boys as a better mom and wife. It’s the best!

  62. The whole family home but not needing me, clean house, and me curled up on the couch with coffee and a good book. I love home the best!

  63. My favorite girlie treat is mini-vacations with my mom. Now that I’m older and we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like, there is nothing better than taking a weekend trip to go see a play or just to relax!

  64. my favorite girlie treat? hmmmmm…. a nice long bubble bath with a good book, or a fun day out with my girlfriends! It’s a toss up!!

  65. how wonderful! The joy of reading this is not just the chance to win, but also the chance to reflect. What illuminates me? Well, the joy of knowing Him. The privilege of being married to my best friend. The adventure of raising my four wonderful children. The abundance of precious friends!

  72. My guilty, girly pleasure is watching Gossip Girl on Monday nights. I feel way too old and out of style to watch, but enjoy the great clothes and entertaining scandles!

  73. Not much time for girlie getaways, but I have to say I enjoy myself the most when I’m reading a good book, while the TV is blasting in everyroom and my kids are running around the house like maniacs…

  74. I am also in the crowd in favor of a nice pedicure or some good girl time with my friends. Both happen so few and far between these days.

  75. My favorite girly treat is to eat jellybeans while doing absolutely nothing else. Savoring the flavor for 4 calories a piece…

  83. My favorite girlie treat is unexpected time alone; just me, a cup of coffee and lots of blogs to read! With two small children in the house, you know things can get a little crazy! Last night, my daughter (almost 5!) didn’t have dance because of the holiday, so my husband took both kiddos to a basketball game. I plopped down in the big leather chair, turned the tv OFF, grabbed a cup of joe, and sat down to hang out with some bloggers. Ahhhhh- the sound of no sound at all!!!!!!

  84. Illuminate–Oh my! your perfect. You declare The statements of Life & living ( or at least-thru my eyes & thoughts)
    I am very simple… I look for`at least’ few minutes every day– for that ~quiet ~ so I can step back when everyone is asleep….and I am able to have `quiet’ to allow `God & Nature’ to just ~BE~ so I never Lose any trace of the day that has just passed. I wan to be able to burn it in my memory & remember day-sounds & smells -look at everyone & everything & have time to just hear them all breathe.
    I lost my 1st child,son in his 1st yr, when I was just 21. That was all burnt in my memory- -the pain of every second-every movement. 30 yrs later I can recall it like it happened yesterday. The pain in my heart -takes my breath away and takes me to my knees in prayer. I learned, The Lord gave women Grace & strength=we did not know we had -we continue on-1foot in front of the other-day after .broken in heart-He holds us up & carry us thru our pain-He Illuminates his Love & gets us thru…we learn to see the Wonder & Beauty in all little things in our day to day life. Our child breathing.. the wind blowing..
    the clock ticking..the house~quiet~for a few minutes and maybe I can take a bath with out interruption..

    I adore your is LIFE spoken simply…It looks like something that when worn would feel soft and silky and you;d ant to be touching it all the time, the extra little dangling jewels are so brillant…. I cant stop looking at your pages.. I am emailing your site to everyone I know…

My husband draws the water, adds bubbles and sometimes, when time allows or life necessitates, comes and sits on the floor next to me for a heart to heart.

  198. My favorite treat is just going to the scrapbooking store by myself – no kids – and just taking my time checking everything out and browsing for as long as I feel like it without any whining or tugging at my sleeve to hurry up because “it’s so boring!”

  199. My favorite girlie treat is being with my girlfriends. I just got home from a wonderful girls weekend full of love,laughter, a few tears and best of all my girlfriends. Anything we do together is a wonderful treat! I feel refreshed,rich and revived! πŸ™‚
