Birthday Giveaway!

Personal, Random

July 12, 2013

My birthday is on Sunday, so I thought it would be fun to give you guys a gift! Since I can’t really give ALL of you guys a gift, I’ve put together a little “birthday in a box” for one of you to win! The birthday in a box has a few of my favorite things in it and I hope whoever wins the box enjoys them as much as I do!

Birthday giveaway

Here’s what’s in the box:

1. Hand painted cork coasters. I love these fun coasters and we use them pretty regularly! Coasters make me feel so grown up!
2. Bigelow Earl Grey Decaf Tea. Earl Grey is by far my favorite tea to drink! I put a little honey and a little sugar in it and it’s so good!
3. A succulent in a ceramic planter. Who doesn’t love succulents??
4. A recycled notebook. I’m kind of old school in that I really like to make my lists on paper. Every once in a while I’ll make a list on my phone, but for the most part, I prefer to write down my ideas and keep all of my to do lists in a fun note book like this one!
5. EOS Summerfruit Lip Balm. This is just about the only lipbalm I can stand to wear on my lips. I’m not a chapstick girl at all (shocker!! Don’t all girls love chapstick??) but I really love the eos brand. Maybe it’s the cute packaging?? I’m a sucker for a cute package!
6. Set of 36 mini colored pencils. Honestly, I just really like these because they’re adorable and fun!
7. Extra Dessert Delights Lemon Square. I’m not a huge sweet eater, but this gum is seriously awesome. The dessert delights really taste like the desserts advertised and the Lemon Square is the best in my opinion!
8. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. If you love to do DIY manicures, Seche Vite is your best friend! It goes on really easily and dries super fast into a shiny, professional looking top coat. It’s by far my favorite top coat, and that’s saying a lot because I’ve tried quite a few!!
9. Essie Anchor’s Away. Essie polishes have the BEST colors and I love the tiny little brush since I have really small nail beds. This color is so fun for summer!! I’m jealous of whoever wins it because I didn’t get one for myself!!
10. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. I’ve been using this stuff on my hair for YEARS!! It’s a smoothing serum that you put on before you dry your hair and it smooths all the rough edges out and actually makes your hair dry faster! It smells so good and I sometimes use it after my hair is dry to smooth out any frizz.
11. 10$ Krispy Kreme Gift Card. (not pictured) Donuts are my favorite treat! It’s only natural that I give away my #1 most loved dessert treat to celebrate my birthday!

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post letting me know which thing you would be most excited to win. Bonus points if you like my page on Facebook or share this post with your friends! Make sure you let me know you did either one by leaving another comment. Winner will be selected randomly on Monday, July 15!

    I would do this just for the nail polish, but I love earl gray tea, too! My new favorite tea is Twinings Prince of Wales though – you’d probably like that too!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I would love to try the nail polish! I’ve heard raves about this and have not tried it yet! I’m also huge fan of writing things done too! Just posted on my fan page 🙂 Great idea. Hope you have a great birthday weekend!

    First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating!

    I would love that nail polish and top coat! I’ve been looking for a good teal-ish color and that one is perfect!!!

    I’m not sure if I’m more exited about the succulent or the essie nail polish!! And while I’m a chapstick girl, I’ve been dying to try the eos lip balm. Happy early birthday, friend!
    PS – I wish I could love your page on FB, but since they only let us like them, I’ve been doing that for over a year now 🙂

    (Hmm thought I already replied – but apparently it didn’t go through. If it did – please ignore this! haha) I can’t decide if I like the nail polish or colored pencils better! I’m obsessed with both! But also – everything here sounds pretty amazing!!! 🙂 Happy Birthday love!!!

    Um, the DONUT gift card!! Though every part of this giveaway looks awesome. Donuts are one of my favorites too. 🙂 Also, I’m supposed to tell you I shared this on FB for extra points. Andddd have you gotten to go to Sugar Shack in RVA yet since it opened?? Soo good.

    For me, it’s a tie between the coasters and the notebook. I’ve made my own coasters before and i just really love hand made things! Also, I LOVE writing everything down. I try to make lists and keep my ideas on my phone or my computer, but I always end up going back to my notebooks! Hope you have an awesome birthday!!!

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! AMAZING BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY! I think I love the nail polish best, both the top coat and the amazing Essie color! Espesh sinceince having colorful nails is about my favorite summer thing ever (ties with avocados and maxi skirts). I liked your page on Facebook, too!!!!!!!

    oh my goodness, Katie … seriously? I think that you are the most generous person EVER.

    I love ALL of those things, but I think I would be MOST excited to win either the Essie nail polish (I’m addicted) or the succulent – I’m really in to plants right now, and surprisingly all of them seem to be flourishing … but I don’t have any indoors right now.
