Giveaway & Review: The Slanket! (CLOSED)

I do a lot of reviews - but this one really rocks! It's practical, fun and unique! So...what is it?

The Slanket, the blanket with sleeves!
The wonderful people at Slanket recently sent me one of their beautiful blankets in ruby wine to review! Fall is in full force here in Massachusetts - giving me the perfect opportunity to try this baby out. And when I say try, I mean, every time I've been on the couch for the last week and a half, I have had the Slanket on me. It's just that perfect. :)

Before I tell you anything else, I must say that it's a conversation starter. Every time we have friends and family to the house they all say "I want one of those!" Think about it, everyone keeps a blanket or two slung over their couch, right? So why not upgrade to one that lets you do more. and dare I say, matches your decor? (The ruby wine matches my drapes perfectly, hehe! ... see below!) You can get the Slanket in 13 colors and 4 prints! (leopard, camo, floral, and skull & cross bones!) Check them out here!

What's even cuter? They sell a Siamese Slanket - for two! How fun would this be as a bridal shower present? Don't tell my husband... but I'm getting him one for Christmas... ;)

As I said before, this blanket is wicked practical. You can wear it and be warm while still having arm mobility. While wearing it I have: had tea, channel surfed, talked on the phone, read a book and guess what I'm doing right now? Blogging! I'm fully covered and snuggly, and can type on my laptop with ease. This blanket is fully machine washable, pill-free, and is extra long so you can curl up into it!

My cats love it too. Actually, that's an understatement. Most nights, my kitties and I have a tug of war over this blanket... (see right.)
