Birthday Giveaway!

That's right folks, my very own (first ever!) blog giveaway, and I am so excited about it!  I hope you are, too.

I have a big birthday coming up one week from today - the big 3-0, which from here on will be referred to as my 29th birthday.  That's what people do when they're turning 30, right?  Anyway, my friend Quinn over at Kimchi & Sweet Tea did a giveaway (which I actually won HURRAY!  I never win anything!)  in honor of her 30th, and I thought it was such a fun idea that I decided to be a copycat!  Only I'm not even half as creative as Quinn, so I decided to do something a little different.  

For the past month, I have been keeping a list of everyday things that I love and calling it my "Fav Things List."  It is mostly cosmetics/accessories and food-related (hello, preggo), but luckily for you guys I've been picking up extras of these items here and there as I've been out and about shopping, so now you can try them out, too!  Just call me Oprah (love her!).  Except that I will sadly not be gifting you a car, Tory Burch bag, or any sort of Apple device...sorry 'bout it.  Anyway, here is the fabulousness that you will receive if you are my lucky winner:



1. twistband Hair Tie 6-pack in Chelsea Classic.  I got these in a Birchbox over a year ago and have been in love ever since, because I have the type of hair that crinkles if I put it up for any amount of time (even 30 seconds. seriously.). These hair ties are amazing!  I bought the boring colors for you because I felt like they could be worn with more, but I'm betting once you try them you'll want to buy some additional colors for yourself.  Even if you don't win, treat yourself because these are fabulous (and are currently shipping for free!).  And if you've never checked out Birchbox, just do it.
2.  Color Club Cocktail Collection Nail Polish in Top Shelf.   I am REAL picky about nail polishes, but this was another Birchbox find that I have been obsessing over this Holiday season.  This color is SO pretty and so versatile.  I've found that it adheres to my nails well, doesn't go on streaky and lasts for a good amount of time.  I also love that I can get by with one coat if I'm short on time.  Love everything about it!
3.  Eos lip balm.  One of my favorites lip balms.  My lips have been so dry this winter season (more dry than normal, I feel like) and I remember from my last laboring experience that chapstick was a must, so I've made sure to stock up.  All of the colors/flavors are so fun, too.
4.  An infinity scarf!  My SIL gave me one as a "thank you" gift for helping with her baby shower, and I love it.  I can't remember the last time that I bought any non-maternity clothing for myself, but scarves are the perfect accessory, pregnant or not!  I am not yet sure whether I will be gifting this scarf or this scarf because I am keeping one for myself.  :-)  But both are presh!!!
5.  A $5 gift card to Chick Fil A so that you can experience the peppermint chocolate shake for yourself (but maybe don't click on that link and look at the nutritional info before consuming, ha!)!  I know I've mentioned before that I've been loving (and craving!) all things peppermint-chocolate-flavored.
6.  Last but not least, your very own bag of candy cane kisses.  Try not to consume the entire bag in one sitting...I dare you.

Who knows, by the time this giveaway is over I may have added something else to the mix, but I wanted to give you a week to enter so I thought I'd go ahead and post.  I'm so excited about my very first giveaway, I hope you are as well!  You have until midnight on my birthday (December 17th) to enter, and the winner will be drawn at random.  So go ahead, enter away!  


I'll be back tomorrow with our regularly scheduled programming: a day-late update on Baby Boy Baum's progress this week.

Happy Tuesday, and may the odds be ever in your favor (couldn't resist!).

Sarah

  8. I only wear Mary Kay make up... but my favorite product right now is the Mary Kay® Makeup Finishing Spray! You spray a couple of pumps about 6 -8 inches from your face once you are done putting on your face and your make up won't run or fade all day!
