Just for Fun Friday Giveaway

I was planning on doing a birthday giveaway, but I seem to have missed the boat on that one, so we’ll just call this a Just for Fun giveaway!  No real theme or anything.  Just things I am loving right now.  And things I want to try!  Here’s what you could win:

~Mebath Strawberry Kiwi Shower Sherbet ($30): I discovered this yesterday and have been thinking about it ever since.  I feel like if I give one away, it will be a reason to buy one for myself too right?
~Turkish-T Beach Candy Swirl Turkish Towel (Orange & Turquoise) ($45):  As you know I am obsessed with turkish towels now.  Hopefully B is on board with the change when he gets home tomorrow!
~Caribbean Breeze Prize Candle ($24.99): If you win this giveaway, you must send me a picture of the ring you get!
~Sephora Favorites Summerstash Kit ($45): What can I say?  I want one of these sets too.  One for me?  One for you? Makes sense to me!

The giveaway ends on 7.7.14 at 12am and I’ll select one winner (winner takes all) at that time and will e-mail them and announce it on here as well.  As usual, all you need to do is click enter to win. But make sure you come back every day to get your daily entries! And if you want, you can also do one (or all) of the other options, including sharing for lots of extra entries! Oh and don’t forget to answer the question for the comment entry option if you do that one! Best of luck and happy entering!

    Family, bbq, and fireworks

  2. Tara m

    Hanging at the pool at my parents with the family! 🙂

  3. Debbie Richardson

    It looks like I will be car shopping over the 4th of July. A van with no working air conditioning is not going to make it in our new Miami life. 🙂

  4. Kellie

    We are going to spend the day using our Salt Block from an old Bespoke Post to grill Flank Steak. IT WAS AMAZING, and really totally beats hot dogs! 🙂

  5. Tammy Davis

    My family will be on vacation!!!

  6. Nicole Whelan

    Watching the fireworks from our family’s home by Lake Michigan! Nothing beats a frontyard view and being cozy with family 🙂

  7. Andie

    What fun items! Thanks so much for the giveaway.

    My fourth of July plans revolve entirely around good friends, good food, and great fun. There will be a barbecue for sure, and plenty of sitting outside to enjoy my town’s fireworks show.

  8. Jill Banks Geraci

    Probably go hide from our crazy neighbors who shoot fireworks from June 30-July 30.

    1. Jennifer

      BAHAHA. Mine shoot them from around Easter through Halloween. So.many.fireworks.

  9. Andrea

    Nothing for the 4th of July (for obvious reasons) but for Canada Day my husband has to work. Therefore I will be having a ‘me’ day followed by going to the fireworks in the evening hopefully!

  10. Amy Ballou

    Going to Murrell’s Inlet down at Myrtle Beach (SC) we leave tomorrow morning! 😀

  11. Lisa

    I’m going to my parents!

  12. Sarah

    I’m hoping to put the grill we got as a wedding gift to good use, finally. Our weekends have been so busy, I’m STOKED about having a long weekend with no plans.

    As a bonus, I’m off work the entire following week with NOTHING TO DO. My daughter will be in college classes starting on the 7th, and my husband can’t get any time off, so I’m going to clean and read and probably just be the laziest version of myself.

  13. Genevieve carter

    No plans for the fourth of July yet.

  14. Stephanie DeArco

    Going to the base rec camp and watching fire works and enjoying ourselves before daddy goes on a deployment

  15. Crstina

    For 4th of July we will be going to our town’s annual 4th of July parade in the morning. Then all of our family is coming over to our house for a bbq and swimming. At night, we will watch our town’s local fireworks display and light our own fireworks. I love 4th of July!

  16. Sindhu

    I’ll probably go watch fireworks.

  17. Katrina

    I was unexpectedly given the 4th off. So…I don’t know yet.

  18. Deanna Magoun

    Cooking and boat riding in the lake!!

  19. Anna K.

    Watching the fireworks with the kids. It’s a first time for my little one, so it’ll be interesting how he reacts!

  20. Hannah

    My grandma’s birthday is on 4th of July, she’ll be 90! But we’re celebrating on Thursday night by taking her out to dinner <3
    I'll be going to an annual 4th of July party at my friends house…3rd year for me, but my boyfriend has been going for 10+ years!

  21. Cynthia

    Love the items in the giveaway!

    And we are most likely going to Louisiana to visit family for the Fourth of July! 🙂

  22. Brandie Cox

    We are spending what I hope is a quiet evening at home. Our 4 year old can not handle the sensory input from fireworks so we have lots of “glow” activities planned instead. 🙂

  23. Rebecca E.

    We probably won’t do much of anything. My husband will probably request that I fix ribs and potato salad though.

  24. Lindsay R

    We will be visiting family on the east coast. We’ll see if our 2 year old likes the fireworks! 🙂

  25. Alicia N

    I am going to be in Las Vegas celebrating my little sisters 21st birthday over the fourth of July!

  26. Kristy

    Nothing yet! Hopefully a BBQ with friends

  27. Shirisha P

  34. Jorja

    1. Jennifer

      That’s right by me!

  41. K

  47. Lisa Springer

    Going to a friend’s house for a party. Our town has their fireworks and festival on the 5th.

  48. Hannah K

    Our little town does a big festival on the square so we always check it out during the day, then shoot fireworks and have a cookout at night.

  49. Ashley

    Well, in my head, we’re going to have a BBQ at our house with our little group of friends and then play with fireworks…and just have a grand ol’ time. In reality, though, we’re probably just going to blow up some fireworks by ourselves in our driveway and then go to bed early.

  50. Blaire

    Bar-b-q and colorful adult cocktails!

  51. Sara

    Probably go see fireworks!!

  52. Terri Q

    I usually watch the big NYC fireworks on TV, but we don’t really do anything for the day. Dog doesn’t like fireworks, so will probably wind up with her on my lap at some point of the night. She doesn’t like thunder either. 🙁

  53. Theresa H

    The Fourth of July is also my grandma’s birthday, so relatives are flying in to celebrate. I’m really into fireworks so we always buy lots to put on our own neighborhood display!

  86. Emily

    not sure what i will do on july 4th, but glad to have a day off. maybe some bbq

  87. Leana

    4th of July is lame around you and I. I grew up in Texas where fireworks were on the actual 4th, not some random day. Oh well, at least I’m off. Will shop and go out.

    1. Jennifer

      OMG a different city has fireworks every night here. It’s insane. Who wants to see fireworks on wednesdays???

  88. Ruby Yoshi

  90. Erin Braun

    I’m going to a family BBQ and making Spa Popsicles for everybody. And a few dozen deviled eggs, of which I’ll probably eat half before I get there.

  91. Kalli

    Every year for as long as I can remember, my family goes down to the beach the night before the 4th (we live on the coast in California) and we rope off a huge area to “save” for the 4th. We have a huge crab and lobster boil that night for our close family and then some of us sleep in out spot for the night so it doesn’t get taken. On the actual 4th, us and all of our friends hang out at the beach all day long. Music, massive BBQ, surfing, you name it. Then at night we watch the massive firework show the city puts on! The 4th is definitely my favorite holiday! My entire family looks forward to it all year. We do more for this than we do for Christmas! Haha!

  92. Alisha


  93. Carolyn

    My poor dog is terrified of fireworks so we spend the 4th at home, trying to keep her as calm as possible. Generally we end up playing lullabies on Pandora as loud as needed to drown out the noise from outside? a very unique tradition I guess!

  94. Got lake

    Vacation boating on Lake Orion Michigan.

  95. Selena Cousin

  213. Liz

    I’m obsessed with turkish towels right now.

  214. Liz

    Grilling and summer naps

  215. Tina Bui

    I’m going to my cousin’s house (She lives on a lake) to her 4th of July party. She hiring a band to play on her patio and they’ll be a fireworks show at night. I’m super excited. It’s a tradition every year.

  216. Elizabeth

    I have no clue yet-whatever it is, just hanging with my hubs and boys will be a great day! 🙂

  217. alyssa

    Most likely a cook out with my parents, brother and niece. No fireworks for me or I’d be in autistic overload from all the people and noise so I just stay and watch them turned down on tv. The 7th I go see my surgeon for the last time so she can get her final post surgery pictures and double check it’s still looking good then see my glaucoma specialist for the first time since before surgery can’t wait to see her reaction! Can’t believe it’s been 4 months already!

    1. Jennifer

      Ahh, I need to go check your blog for some updates!

      1. alyssa

        Haven’t posted updates since right before I got the artificial eye. Was planning to do an update the week after. Am going to be posting a blog about the big reason I haven’t updated. My family went through a huge shocking change the Sunday after I got my eye. I won’t say what it was here cause I don’t want to depress you and your readers.

  218. Janaya

    I’ll be deployed.

    1. Jennifer

    I love that you are only truly interested in your followers. We live in Coeur D Alene, Idaho so we are thinking of traveling over to Seattle for the 4th of July. My daughter has been wanting to go to the ocean to ‘catch’ some sharks lol. I have a reservation on a hotel room, and looked into different in the park activities for the 4th, but I’m not positive if we will get to make it due to unexpected expenses. I’m hoping we can make it work, who doesn’t like to make their babies happy (:
