Favorite Things

Eeek! It’s time for the April Favorite Things Giveaway! For some reason I had trouble deciding what to do this month. You were all so excited about last month’s that I didn’t want to disappoint you know? I settled on a beach theme this month because summer is all I can think about these days! Here’s what’s up for grabs this month:

~Supergoop ‘City & Sand’ Sunscreen Set ($35): I LOVE Supergoop and, of course, you should always wear sunscreen when at the beach.  Also, that little tote?  Love it!
~MICHAEL Michael Kors 62mm Aviator Sunglasses ($115): I am dying for a pair of aviators and these are fabulous.  Nothing fancy.  Just a great pair of sunglasses.
~J.Crew Farmers Market Tote ($49.50): I am usually not into straw totes, but something about this one speaks to me.
~Apple iPod Nano ($149): I’m going to let you pick the color, but I’d go for the aqua!  I want one of these for B and I this summer on the patio so we can throw this in the sound dock and don’t have to reply on one of our phones for music (mine has two songs so we clearly won’t be using that).
~Pacific Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes ($6): Even if you plan in winning this giveaway, run to Target and get these so you have some for now.  They smell amazing.
~“Drinking & Tweeting” by Brandy Glanville ($14): Brandy is hysterical and so is this book.  That girl has no filter.  What’s not to love?
~Nordstrom Gift Card ($50): I can’t exactly pick out a swim suit for you or a pair of sandals, but I at least thought I’d help you a little but ;).  Get some nail polish too because I wanted to include some, but it’s a hassle to ship.
~TanTowel Self-Tanner Towelettes ($24): I love that summer glow and these are the safe answer!  If you haven’t tried them, you should!

All totaled, this giveaway has a value of $442.50!!!   And once again, I want to win it for myself.  And since people always ask why I do giveaways, I do it to say THANK YOU to you all for reading, using my affiliate links (which I am certain annoy some people and I am sorry), buying Tupperware, etc.  I am so thankful and want to make sure you know!  And I don’t even need to tell you to read the rules, you know that ;).  I feel like I should add this though:

This giveaway is in Rafflecopter. You should see the box below.  If not, try a different browser, your phone, a different computer, whatever.  It’s there.  You may enter once a day, but it MUST be 24 hours after you entered last.  Rafflecopter flat out won’t let you enter sooner than 24 hours.  This giveaway will end on 4/18/13 at 11:59pm (which also happens to be B’s birthday, but I assure you he won’t win this).

    Thanks for the great giveaway!! Summer must-haves are bright nail polish (we are covered with Julep on that one) and a great BB cream (I recommend Skin 79 Bright Pink) because foundation is just too heavy and it gives you protection from the sun.

  4. Kellie

    Summer Must Haves: Old Navy Flip Flops, you cannot go wrong with buying 10 different color combos for $2.50, and getting new ones every year esp when they do $1 flip flop day! <3, tons of Chapsticks, Green Aloe Vera gel for sunburn, and tons of trashy novels for the beach.

  165. Sarah

    I live in the south and we have warm summer weather at least 8 months out of the year which is GLORIOUS compared to upstate NY… the things I couldn’t live without:
    -Breathable cotton sundresses so I can be covered & cute, but not miserable and sweaty
    -Big sunglasses.. I generally get them from Target.
    -A good book, either paper or on my Nook
    -A big water bottle to stay hydrated
    -Good sunscreen.. I am terrified of skin cancer and I’m fairly pale with lots of moles
    -Flip-flops… I detest real shoes, and only wear them when it rains or drops below 50F.. summer requires multiple pairs, a pair for the beach, a pair for going out to dinner, one for bumming around the house on a lazy Saturday.

    If I don’t win this contest I’ll definitely b

    Flip flops- old navy is just fine! I buy a ton of them and wear them out! I still like cute sandals, but I live in flip flops.

    Blonde Hair! Lol. Does that count???

    I usually buy some new OPI nail polish but, I just got the free Julep Maven box from your links and I’m loving the colors that I got in “BombShell”.
