Melts In Your Mouth , Not In Your Hands (I Hope!)


Three years ago I started this blog because I love to write and talk about random things and now it is my 3-year blogoversary (well, actually, it was May 17th.) In honor of said occasion, I am having a Blog Giveway of 3 of my favorite things.

At first I toyed with the idea of giving away 3 of my favorite books (but I think I will save that for next time). This time I am giving away a $10 gift card to Starbucks,

some yummy chocolate,

and a Thymes Offerings candle in your choice of Thankfulness (a caramel vanilla) or Happiness (a rhubarb sugar cane) because I am both thankful and happy for my blog and my readers!

The candle itself retails for $26. I work for the company that makes it so I hope if you win my contest you will try the candle & fall in love with it and want to buy more!

So to enter my contest I will keep it very simple. Just leave me a comment telling me 3 things about yourself – it can be your 3 favorite designers, your 3 favorite foods, 3 places you have lived, 3 colors you like. Anything in a set of 3. I like random!

And if you are a follower or become a follower (over on the sidebar), you will get a double entry. Please be sure to let me know if you are a follower though because I don’t always keep track.

Easy peasy!

Also, I do have to make this contest for US and Canada readers only as I am a little concerned about mailing chocolate and a candle in this heat wave, let alone worrying about my package making it around the world!

Good luck!

I will draw one lucky name on the evening of Tuesday, June 1st the old fashioned way out of a Juicy Couture sun hat.

Entry # 2 -

First off - great giveaway! Here are my 3 things:

1. I have a life size crush on a fictional character. Adam Braverman from the show Parenthood makes my heart go pitter patter. I just adore him and I hope I someday meet someone that makes me grin ear to ear like he does!
2. I am so freaking excited for the SATC2 movie. I am going on Friday with a girlfriend and just can't wait. I am uber nervous about Aidan being back. I love the guy but Carrie and him are not good together!
3. I do everything with my right hand except deal cards. I do that left handed as it feels just wrong/awkward to deal cards right handed.

squeakygirl said...

I love that you are pulling it out of a Juicy C. hat! *grins* I also adore the items you're giving away, those are perfect.

Three things about me:

1. I was raised to be a posh middle class girl who dresses up and wears expensive clothes and jewelery. Unfortunately I'm a country girl at heart and love my dirt, gardens and horses.

2. I'm a true natural born red head.

3. I love monkeys. Seriously.

(I'm also an avid follower of you! *wee*)

I couldn't resist entering your giveaway because I love chocolate! (Actually, all the things in it are great.) So 3 things I love to eat are chocolate, chocolate, and chocolate. Oh, oops, that's the same thing 3 times. OK, so instead I'll do foreign languages. The 3 foreign languages I've studied are French, Swahili, and Latin (I know the last one's a dead language, but it's still foreign to me).
