A Potentially Tacky Giveaway

by tessa8m on May 24, 2012

in giveaway

Ahoy there!

For no other reason than I think you are all fantastic, I am doing something I haven’t done around these parts in awhile.

I could not appreciate your input, words of wisdom, personal experiences and thoughts anymore than I already do…. but want to show my thanks via a giveaway! I decided to do it vlog style (like another one I did way back) because I have been wordyyyyy for quite some time now on the ole blog, and I wanted to shake things up!

Here is what the vlog is all about! (Please excuse my somewhat sweaty and disheveled look… I just came back from a walk :) )

YouTube Preview Image

If you didn’t make it all the way through, understandable btw, then here allow me to explain here what one winner will be receiving!

  1. A whole bunch of energy/protein bars including mini Clif and Lara, Vega Sport, Nature Valley, Barabaras, ThinkThin, and a few other random favorites of mine
  2. A new kind of cookie butter that is similar to Biscoff and the Trader Joe’s cookie spread
  3. Sunflower Crackers, Cranberry Honey Mustard, and also Sweet Potato chips
  4. A colorful collage- filled with motivational sayings, pictures, healthy-living style kind of stuff!

I did mention this in the vlog but the reason for the “tackiness” title is that I have done a similar giveaway TWO other times now with my favorite foods and also a collage…. but I just enjoy making them so much but have a few myself, hence giving them away to a reader is perfect! Plus you win free food and who doesn’t like free stuff we might not even need?! No one ;)

And to enter (again if you didn’t make it through, I will tell you about it here!):

Leave a separate comment for each and open to everyone:

  1. *Mandatory- Tell me your most favorite part about summer, or something you are looking forward to the most! Family, food, activity or anything else related!
  2. Follow me on Twitter and leave a comment saying you did so.
  3. Tweet about the giveaway saying something along these lines: I just entered to win @tessa8m giveaway! Protein/energy bars, organic snacks and a motivational collage are the prizes!

You can enter until Tuesday, 5/29 and I will announce the winners the next morning during my WIAW post! Good luck to everyone and see you all tomorrow :)

*Oh and P.S, did anyone actually watch the vlog? lol Totes okay if you didn’t ;)

I guess my favorite part of it being summer is just the fact that I don’t have school work to worry about for at least a couple of months. I also love that my mom is a teacher, so she has her summer’s off as well and we can go for runs every morning together!

I love summer due to sleeping in, running lots, family time, yummy farmers markets, and sun!! I could live in a place where its summer all year long. I’m extra excited this summer because I’m going to Zimbabwe, Africa in June for a mission trip! I know this will be a summer I will never forget! :)

hehe you’re very funny Tessa! btw, your posts are NEVER too long! I used to make collages with old newspaper titles and pictures but got rid of them when I shifted to a new house. Then, I started pasting them into a book! hmm.. we don’t have summer in Malaysia but summer here in AUS is when I get to go home! So, my favourite part about it is definitely the three wonderful months I get to spend with my family! and of course, all the yummy Malaysian food that I’m craving sooooo badly! :P oh! and because summer here starts in December, Christmas and New Year is close by!!!! and we have Chinese New Year celebrations in Jan/Feb (depending on the lunar calender!). hehehe
Have an awesome long weekend! :D

My favorite thing about summer that I am most looking forward to is family vacation. Every year we go to SunRiver, Oregon. Its a super cool resort and we started going the week after Labor Day once my brother and I were done with high school and it’s fabulous because it’s completely empty and we get the bike paths/pools all to ourselves.

Yay!

This is my first summer in the northeast, but I already know I’m going to love it! I love how up here the skies are SO blue and there’s no afternoon thunderstorms like in Florida. Oh and the fact that the humidity up here is slim to none is a definite plus. I can’t wait to see what my first summer in NE is going to bring, although I can guarantee it’s going to be plenty of outside day drinking ;)

I’m deaf – so I’m really grateful that you explained what you had said here too! We are heading into Winter in Australia and I’m missing the warmth, the sunshine, my favourite summer fruits like watermelon and berries, the beach and swimming, holidays, more daylight… yes Summer rocks. Hope you enjoy yours :) xxx

My favorite part about summer (aside from the fact that I’ll have a baby this summer [due in 11 days!!!]) is that there are a lot more opportunities for fun stuff with my DOG! I know, weird, but I feel so bad when she’s cooped up in the house and I love watching her run and play at the dog park all summer. What can I say? I love my Gloria!!

I watched the video! You’re incredibly adorable, btw, and I love vlogs because it’s cool to put a voice to the (writing) voice, know what I mean? I am also guilty of hoarding…tofu! I eat it a lot so I’m always scared of running out – I buy at least 2 or 3 packages of it every time I’m at the store. It’s starting to take over my refrigerator.

That’s weird. My favorite are the peanut butter nature valley crunch bars and during ED I would eat half of the 1 bar if I felt hungry. And I remember one of the first things I ate when I was ordered by the doctor to start gaining weight was both the peanut butter bars and it felt amazing. I never went back to just eating one or part of one! Never tried the maple brown sugar though, sounds delicious! I’m obsessed with Justin’s it’s my favorite!! Oh and I’m obsessed with honey mustard so that cranberry mustard sounds right up my alley. My favorite thing about summer is lemon flavored everything, spending time with my boyfriend and friends, and not having to worry about the stress of school. Oh and sleeping in :)

the best part about summer? for me, it’s the sunlight. i feel so much better during the day, and summer affords us so much more daytime!

I’m already following you on twitter…have you added to a list! :) I just love the summer weather…it’s amazing how a little sunshine and warmth puts everyone in a good mood..that and fresh local strawberries!!!
What are you most looking forward to? You may have mentioned in the vlog which I’ll be honest I played but due to my short attention span today (it’s still something I’m working on!) I didn’t get further than 1 minute in! (As I’m writing this I’m considering making myself watch it as a test of concentration! :) ) Going to tweet now!

My favorite part of summer is going to the beach in Maine with my family, but this summer I am taking classes and interning in Los Angeles. I am homesick, but trying to make the most of it. At least it’s sunny and warm every day! :-)
