A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

It's my birthday, but you get the gifts! Giveaways from Sparkle Box and CBD!

Thursday, April 16, 2015

This week has been so wonderful. Henry, Dan, and I have been spending lots of time with our families and friends, and that makes me incredibly happy. We are so blessed to have so many amazing people in our lives. And it's been such a needed reminder that if you're surrounded by the people you love, and if you have your health and needs met, you really, truly, have it all.

I bring all of this up because this week marks my 32nd birthday. I honestly can't believe it's time for another birthday, as part of my brain is still back in February (sleep deprivation, maybe?). This year, I can't help but feel extra blessed that I get to celebrate 32 with my loving husband and our adorable son. It makes it that much sweeter. 

So when I started thinking about what I wanted for my birthday, the answer was: nothing. I know that seems ridiculous, but I truly have everything I want right now. I have the best family and friends in the world. We have a comfortable roof over our heads. We have our health. And we already have FAR too much stuff. Therefore, this year called for something different. 

This year, I'm taking my birthday as a chance to give gifts to others! 

Yep, you read that right! I'm giving away a few gifts just because it makes me happy! I donated to a really worthy local charity, and now, I'm passing some more gifts on to YOU! 

Gift #1: A Sparkle Box for you (or for mom!) (value $19)
I've blogged a bit about Sparkle Box before, but let me tell you about it, just in case you missed it! Sparkle Box is a fantastic, brand spanking new jewelry subscription box service. For only $19 a month, you get 2-3 pieces of jewelry hand-picked and mailed directly to you! You get to choose your own signature style, so it doesn't matter if you love trendy, simple, quirky, or edgy jewelry, there's a style for you! There's even an AWESOME Mother's Day box you can pick up for a limited time (Hint hint, that's coming up here, people!). 

You can also read more about Sparkle Box here and see my most recent Sparkle Box review here!

If you win the Sparkle Box present, you'll choose your style (or a style for mom if you want to gift the gift!), and you'll receive some jewelry you're sure to love! 

Gift #2: A gift certificate from Courtney Bock Designs (value $20)

My love affair with Courtney Bock Designs is ongoing and never ending. Is there anything better than monogrammed, personalized gifts? I love the lines CBD carries (hellllo, Kate Spade!), and I love how wonderful they are to work with (I'm a brand rep for them, and it's been a dream!). 

If you win the CBD gift, you'll take home a $20 gift certificate to spend on whatever you'd like! My current favorites are the Monogram Acrylic Necklace ($19.95), the Belles do it better coffee mug ($28) -- (SMC chicks, check it out!), the Barre and Brunch tank ($22), and the Gold Monogram Tote ($18) -- (SO Gatsby!). So many great choices on the site! 


To enter both drawings, see the Rafflecopter entry below! Entering will give you a chance to win each prize, (two winners total, one for each present!)! The contest will end on April 24, and winners will be emailed and announced on the blog! Good luck!
