50 Smackers {A Giveaway}

A while back I posted that I'd host a BIG giveaway when I hit 100 followers.

Then I hit 100 hundred followers the day we got carpet, the day family was flocking to town.  Then it was Thanksgiving and all of a sudden it was December 6th!  YIKES!

So even though I'm late, let me just tell you a

Big Huge THANK YOU for letting me ramble and feel important!


And as my way of giving back, I introduce my fabulous blog giveaway:

50 Smackers!

Source
That's right ladies--50 tubes of Lip Smackers Lip Gloss.  Coca-Cola, Cookie Dough, Watermelon, Sugar Plum ... all your favorite flavors are there!

Who doesn't want 50 tubes of lip gloss?

WHAT? 

You don't want 50 tubes of chapstick?

Fair enough.

When I was a freshman I found out (the hard way) that I'm allergic to Lip Smackers.  My lips go so inflamed I looked like the Joker.  I had to walk around for months putting Aquafore on my lips and everyone teased me and said it was KY Jelly.  True story.

Oh well. If I'm not the only one opposed to Lip Smackers I might as well give away 50 Smackers.

As in this guy:
Fine Print: You won't get a $50 bill but a check or card.  I swear it's good.  I just hate mailing cash (though the mail men don't seem to mind ..... hmmmmmmm........)

The Truth:

I was going to give away $100 but then I heard about a cause on WayFM that broke my heart and I gave half the money to them.

It was totally worth it.  If you haven't heard of The Room at the Inn fundraiser for Cure International, please click the link and read all about it!  You can provide a healthy pre-post natal cost of an infant in Afghanistan.  **Warning**Photos on sight are heartbreaking**

  3. What would I do with 50 bucks. Hmmm, I'd like to say I'd do something very honorable with it, like donate to Kiva.org. Honestly though, I would probably tuck it in my travel mad-money envelope to be spent on my next getaway.....Any extra found $$ is stashed in there until there is enough $$ to go somewhere ;)

    Thanks for your very generous giveaway!

  4. I would put the $50 towards a Garmin GPS watch for my hubby.

  22. I could use $50 to buy a ton of stuff I've been eyeing lately. I think however, I would spend it on some new clothes. I'm hoping my current clothes won't fit me in the next two months. I've been working out religously at the gym and am just beginning to see some results!

  28. I follow you because I enjoy your musings, I like the mix of style and hot-momma tips that make me laugh because they're so honest. I also followed you because you followed me and that made me smile so much I was excited to see what kind of amazing person was following me, I wasn't disappointed.

  29. Hmm $50 that's a lot of money and with how much postage costs to send to England I'd feel awful at you spending that much so I'd just say I'd spend the money on a gift for my boyfriend who is so patient with me when I'm at my worst and super sweet when I'm at my best, so he deserves something fun and manly like a....man toy thing...you know with noises and lights. *shrug*
