I’m giving away a box of my favorite summer things (Travelwee included!)

This giveaway is now closed.   Congrats to Beth Ann, the winner of the summer box!

Hello, dear readers!

Normally I don’t write a post on Memorial Day, since most of you Americans are busy having a holiday weekend.

But, to kick off summer this year, I’m participating in a multi-blogger giveaway, where we each are giving away a box of some summery goodies.

Below is an image of all the giveaways, plus links to enter each giveaway.

Here’s what you’ll get if you win my box:

favorite summer things

  • We love our Strawesome straws, so I’ve included a beautiful blue glass smoothie straw. It’s got a slight bend in it, which we love because that helps prevent these straws from rolling off the counter onto the floor. 😉 A straw cleaning brush is included.
  • On the food front, a box of my favorite chai, and a box of Aldi fruit strips, which we love (and which are 100% fruit)
  • a white Chalk Ink marker (so much easier to use than chalk! Read more here.)
  • A soy candle from Epantry (plus an all-natural lip balm from Epantry)
  • Some summery products from Third Day Naturals (soap, sugar scrub, natural bug spray, and lip balm)
  • A BBQ cookbook
  • A Travelwee! Lisey made one especially for the giveaway, because we thought one of you might like to take a Travelwee with you on your summer adventures.   The travelwee will come in a little Altoid tin, ready for, well, travel.   😉


Since I don’t love using Rafflecopter when I enter giveaways, I’m keeping it simple!
