happy birthday to....you! my first giveaway!

Ladieeeeees!!!!! (and gents...hey...we take all kinds here!) today is the day!

Birthday doom. I'm fighting it. I'm fighting it hard. This is easy for me to say because it's sunday night as I write this and the "celebration" is over. Let's call it like it is, birthdays that fall on mondays are crap, so for the sake of argument, I "celebrated" today, Sunday.....and how did I celebrate? I went to my Weight Watchers meeting to find out I hadn't lost an ounce in 2 weeks. then, I drove past the gym I was planning to join and I stuck my tongue out and kept driving. then I came home and moped, went to the splash park with Ben (highlight of the day. I wish I brought my camera...it was awesome!), came home, moped some more and went to dinner...

But nevermind about all that because I am a big moper and I will forever be pissy about my birfday. love me for me.....

Let's talk about YOU! Let's talk about how it's your lucky day! I have some goodies for you guys! I have been wanting to do a giveaway for a long time now, but I wanted it to be something that I really loved and believed in....

Stuff that was my favorite.....

So twist muh arm, I went to the mall......


and I got sommmmmmmmme-lucky-follwer a prezzie!!!!

Here's what's up for grabs, gals...

I love lipsgloss. did you know? I'm obsessed. and one of the BEST ones I have found is a semi-cheapie by NYX in "natural". It goes on looking almost translucent with a little sparkle, but it complements your natural color perfectly. It would be a great color on anyone....it's slick and not sticky, it smells yummy, and I'm giving one to you! Along with a gorgeous MAC dazzleglass in "rags to riches" which is beautiful, flattering, sparkly gold. so pretty for fall....PLUS, a cutie little bag for 'em to ride in....



But wait! there's more!!!

Who likes to munch?

Have you had the Trader Joe's dark chocolate caramel bar with black sea salt? You haven't? Let me help you. Let me also send you a box of fluer de sel caramels......thank me later.....



Do you want a new bronzer brush? How about a new BOBBI BROWN brozer brush? I love this brush. I have one.Iit's the bomb. And let's just face it. fall is coming and our tans are gonna fade. You need a bronzer brush....



Last, but not least, I also want you to have these earrings I picked out just for you Friday night at Francesca's when I went birthday shopping with my biify, Mich. Then we went to Cheesecake Factory. I wish you were there!!!! But since you weren't, I got you earrings. Do you love them? Cuz I do. i love them like WHOA. and I'm giving them to you! LUCKY!



The bottom line is, guys, you make me happy. It makes me happy to know somebody reads this nonsence, that maybe it makes you smile, or laugh, or relate. It's a human thing. It's awesome. and, I can think of no time better than my birthday to tell you thank you for sharing this journey with me. And I think I got you some pretty fun stuff...

Nnow who wants it?

The giveaway starts at midnight tonight (8/20) and will run through Friday (8/24) , when rafflecoptor will pick a winner....I think...I have never used rafflecoptor before. *fingers crossed*

Good luck! I hope it's you!

Love you guys!!!
