My Favorite Things {and my 1st giveaway!}

**This giveaway is now closed!**
Congrats to winners Sarah and Shaunna!

I've been writing this blog for awhile now and have still never done a giveaway. I've passed a few milestones, yearly anniversaries, milestones posting stats, etc., and I've just never gotten around to doing one!

That's about to change, though! And for my first one, I thought I'd do one that's totally personalized to my tastes and my life! I'm going to put together two packages of some of my favorite things!  Oprah style, if you will!

Ok, here we go!

(All items in this post will be part of the giveaway!)

Better Home and Gardens magazine
I have loved this magazine as long as I can remember. And it's one I read most consistently.

Uber bars
Just recently found these and love pretty much every flavor. The cherry is bomb!

Clif Granola Bars
My all-time favorite granola bar! Clif Crunch white chocolate macadamia nut

KIND bars
If I had endless amounts of money, I would most definitely have an endless supply of KIND bars. They offer so many flavors and all are so good!

Lipsyl Beeswax Lip Balm
I may be addicted to chapstick. I have to have some with me at all times. I have multiple tubes in my purse, coat pockets, office desk drawer, even my bedside table. I can't even remember how I stumbled across this chapstick but it's my all-time favorite. I think it may have been my mom that introduced me. It's both of our favorite! Good stuff!

Covergirl mascara*
I'm not a big make-up person. My mom put foundation on me for senior prom and I had to wash it all off. Couldn't stand it. Luckily, my complexion is ok enough that I don't feel I need a face caked with make-up. Mascara is my one daily make-up product, though. I have used this particular  mascara for years! Just love it! Creates long, thick lashes without clumping.

Revlon gel eyeliner*
I found this eye liner last fall and have been using only it ever since. It goes on smooth and easier than other pencils but much easier than trying to wrangle liquid. Plus it stays put all day long.

Luna protein bars
I'm really not much of a protein bar eater. I've found a couple I do enjoy, though. Luna protein bars are at the top of the list.

Annie's Organic Bunnies
One of my favorite little snacks/treats. An easy lunchbox item and a nice after dinner sweet treat for myself!

Necklace from Forever 21
This store is dangerous! I could go here every other week and leave with an armful of new necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and hair accessories. I limit myself to once or twice every few months, though.

$10 Trader Joe's gift card
My go-to store to get most of the items on my weekly shopping list.

*The mascara will be in one package, eye liner in another.

Sorry to all the males reading. This giveaway is more chick oriented. But hey, I'm female. My favorite things lean more toward the feminine side. ;) But go ahead and enter anyway. I'm sure your wife, girlfriend, sister, mother, etc., would love to be gifted this fun little package!
