Summer Survival Giveaway!

OK kids, it's time for my first giveaway! 
I've decided to do a sort of care package
of my summer essentials. 

This is the coolest item;
generously donated by my 
in-real-life friend 

Aren't they cute? 
I love the color.
Wearing flowers in your
 hair is one of the best parts of summer,
don't you think? 
In fact, I'm wearing a hair flower
from Emy in my hair as I type.
It has greatly improved my outlook on the day.

Please be sure to visit Emy's Etsy shop to check out her
other very cool hand made items. 
I bought my grandmother a bee pendant for her
birthday last year and she LOVES it.

Also included in the giveaway are
some random things
that help me get through the summers here in 
hot hot Phoenix. 

First up.....
you may choose two candles 
made by my mom. 

{mom, may I please give away two
of your Jesus candles for 
my blog giveaway? Thanks.}

Nothing says summer like Jesus in bling.
I love lighting these on my deck. They glow oh so nicely.


a set of four lovely wine glasses to sip your
summer viognier, sangria or a light pinot noir. 

I will also include some of my favorite books 
{already loved/used/read because I'm all about 
sharing books I've loved.}, some sunscreen, some
sidewalk chalk and 
perhaps a few other items I come across in the 
next ten days that just scream SUMMER to me.


1) Become a follower of the blog
{because blog followers raise my self esteem.
It's true.} and leave a comment letting
me know you would like to be entered.

2) You may blog, tweet or facebook about it for extra entries
{one for each shout out. Be sure to email me if you 
share on any social media sites so I get your name in again!}

3) If you gave birth to me OR if you gave birth to the person 
who gave birth to me you are NOT eligible.

4)  Get your entries in by midnight on June 3rd.
I'll announce the winner next Friday, June 4th.

African Kelli said...

Oh, you'd better believe I am rocking this contest. Jesus candles? Wine? HAIR DOO DADS?
This is my kinda contest and I'm not even being sarcastic.

Taylor K said...

Nicole, of course you count! People who are already followers just need to leave a comment.

Kelli, I'm SO glad you like the stuff! I feel like it will be way more fun to give away lots of random summer items rather than doing them individually. :)

Samantha Jane said...

Summer said...

I am totally in for the giveaway. I am already a follower (and probably check your blog often enough to qualify as budding stalker). I love love love the hairclips, and if my basement is ever finished I will be whipping some up for miss H's ballet hair (although she only has two weeks left of ballet).

SO, I'm totally hoping I win win win.

Taylor K said...

hooray! I'm so glad that all of you like the giveaway. :) thanks every one for following.

Corie- I knew you would love the flowers! You and Camdyn can each wear one. :)

Summer- thanks for being the best blog stalker ever!

Jules- bff is eligible. I think it would look a little fishy if you won though, so I might have to make a separate prize for you? Like, say, unlimited babysitting, a couple Jesus candles and a night of mocktails at my house??

Nicole- poor PJ. :( How much longer does he have in quarantine?

Jenny- Ugh, Texas must be a killer! At least we don't have the humidity here!!
