Three Oh Giveaway

I turn 30 tomorrow! Birthdays that fall on a weekend are the best kind, don't ya think? To celebrate this momentous day, I'm giving away three of my very favorite things. One is to use in the kitchen and the other two are apart of my daily beauty regiment. Take a look:

1. This vanilla will take your baking to whole new levels. The flavor is unmatched.
2. My second favorite thing is this Dior mascara. It lengthens, thickens and curls. Boom!
3. Those who use this lip balm already know of its greatness. It has a silky texture and it's made with good ingredients that aren't harmful. I also love that it gives your lips a nice natural sheen.

To enter all you have to do is leave a comment telling me one of your favorite things (anything!). I'll pick a winner next Wednesday, May 4 at 8 AM, so make sure you get your comment in before then. The winner will receive all three of my favorite things. Good luck and I wish you all could win! :)



P.S. Nielsen-Massey, Dior and Kiehl's don't know who I am.

I can't think of any of my favorite things because I'm still trying to figure out how it's possible that you are going to be 30. I still remember baking a peach pie for your family when you were born and seeing you in your crib & your little baby casts. You're freaking me out, Lady!

Okay, favorite things:
people in a good mood
a well stocked thrift store
pancakes w/ strawberries & whipped cream

Love you, Bri! Have a wonderful birthday. The 30s are awesome.
