Claire's First Giveaway!

As we head into summer, I know what you're thinking - free time! Okay so maybe not. Maybe for you summer is just another season to work during or the time when all your kids don't go to school during the day. While either one may cause you joy or sorrow, I think it's high time that we started getting excited about summer again! Remember those days when we used to count down, becoming less and less focused as the day of freedom approached?
Well, today I would like to help you get some of that back! I can't give you freedom, but I can give you free stuff! Right!?


This week I would like to hear from you! I would like to hear your most hilarious school moment! Maybe you have some similar to me: falling down the stairs in front of everyone, getting ahead by two bars (band) at a state qualifying competition and having the drum major yell at you, who knows? I want to!

Since I am a Mary Kay Consultant, I have decided two reward your embarrassment with what you wanted back then, a little bit of new you! Celebrate summer with a little color!

First Prize!
One randomly selected commenter will receive one of the MK Vinyl Lip Shines! You can choose between Audacious and Attitude (Red and Purple). These can go on in varying degrees of darkness depending on how much you love to put on!

Second Prize!
The second randomly selected commenter will get one free eyeshadow! I have many shades and you can choose which one is best for you!

How to Enter:
* Become a follower (if you're not already) and leave me a comment telling me your embarrassing school moment!

* Get a second entry added for going to my Mary Kay page and taking the virtual beauty makeover!

* The final way you can get extra entries is to re-post this giveaway on your blog or facebook page (but let me know you did it so I can give you credit)!

But just like summer, all good things must come to an end.
Your chance to qualify to win ends June 6, Memorial Day, the introduction to Summer!

Make sure to be a part of the hilarity and post your story. I will post the winner on Memorial Day!


  1. I'm not going to follow b/c I just don't do that... I love typing in the address (I know I'm weird) and I don't want to join the Mary Kay page... so I'm out of luck on the make up.
    BUT I am your sister and I LOVE you like crazy! Miss your face!
    ps. Stella says she's ready for cousins! any time! =)

  2. Well I was pretty awkward in school so I have PLENTY of stories including one where I was in love with a girl and never could tell her but she always knew anyway.
    I even was able to get her to go to one of my birthday parties maybe through pity or maybe because she really wanted to be my friend, I don't know. but in the end it wasn't meant to be and I knew it. I am just fortunate enough to have her as a friend and enjoy the memories that I have. I can't help but laugh at it looking back, I don't understand why I did half the things that I did in school. I'm sure lots of people had silly crushes in school and look back at them the way I do.
    I don't do the Mary Kay thing either and I know you want to promote it but I just can't, it's a pyramid scheme and that's the end of it.
    Anywho, good luck!
