Minky Couture - Review and Giveaway! $65 Value (ENDED)

I was thrilled when my Minky Couture tween sized blanket showed up just in time for LDS General Conference.  Guess what I spent most of the weekend cuddling with?


I love this blanket because it's very warm and so soft.  I've never been attached to something like this before, but I find myself taking it to my parents' house to use while I lounge around.  I'm seriously considering buying a blanket big enough for my bed.

I also loved that I got to design it myself.  I got to pick out the print for the front, the color of the back, and color of the ruffle.


This is a hot commodity in our house.  As soon as I get up to get something, Lily and my cat both try to get there first to steal it away.  It seems like Lily and the cat are always stealing it away from me!  When I let Lily cuddle with it, the cat will watch intently until she gets up and then run right over when she gets up to take her spot.

Minky Couture has a kiosk in University Mall, and a store in Draper.
