Day 1 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by CarleeMcDot.com today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER ELEVEN YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 1 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today is: 1 $100 gift card for 
Sarah Marie Design Studio


For today, DAY ONE, one winner will be selected, winning a $100 gift card for Sarah Marie Design Studio.

I have been a fan of Sarah Marie Design Studio for like... EVER! But the hubby and I have been trying to simplify our lives, which means less purchasing things, so I never pulled the trigger and ordered anything (another reason is because I love just about EVERYTHING and haven't been able to narrow my "Wish List" to less than ten items).


So when Sarah and I teamed up a few months back for a giveaway, it was like the stars aligned, the heavens opened and the angels rejoiced ;) Okay, that might be a bit much, but I definitely let out a little squeal when I got the message.

She didn't just send one item, she sent a boat-load. I was beyond floored when I opened the package. #HappyDance


Let's just say it was a love at first sight! In the past I haven't been one for muscle tees, but lately I can't get enough (I love rocking them with a Handful bra underneath so I still feel covered, but can add a little extra pop of color).

Is this new slogan amazing or what?!

Although Mother Nature was a rude lady and unrelenting this summer, I am stoked for it to be sweatshirt weather soon!

A few of the essentials I packed in my carry-on for my trip to Chicago in October!

And tell me this tank is not PERFECT! I mean... I literally think I might live in it while they hubby and I are out and about on our adventures. #WhoUsesThePhoneToActuallyCallAnymore #NotMe #PleaseJustText


I can't forget about the AWESOME Steve Prefontaine pin. I honestly had to hide it when it first arrived because the hubby wanted to steal it from me. So freakin' amazing, right?! Legit this is my fave pin EVER!


Don't forget the moisture wicking hat! Normally I'll run in a trucker (since that's all I have), but this is definitely a step up in my headgear game! It even has UV protection in the fabric - SCORE!

PS Please ignore the fact that the bill isn't straight... I had just rocked the hat on an 18-miler (in 80% humidity) and was a little disheveled.

Now, if only Sarah had a "Run all the miles, Eat all the chips and salsa" shirt I'd be all set! But really, Sarah, hint hint ;)

One of the awesome things about this giveaway is you get to pick your own adventure. You get $100 to use towards whatever you would like to order - pins, tanks, coffee mugs, sweatshirts, hats, sports bras, nail wraps, etc!

Entering this giveaway (along with the other #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas giveaways) is easy-peasy! Simply use the Rafflecopter widget listed below on the giveaway blog post and cross your fingers. Some entries are available daily so I'd HIGHLY recommend entering early and often. (Shoot, I would even go as far as suggesting you set an alarm to remind you to come back to this page every 24 hours so you can take advantage of as many entries as possible!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Now, the nitty gritty details... All entries are verified, so please make sure to do whatever the required action for the entry is or it will be disqualified. I would hate for you to miss out on winning due to a technicality, so if you are going to click the option, make sure you do whatever it asks or a new, random winner will be selected in your place.

Also, this giveaway will last seven days, with the winner being picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winner will have 24 hours to reply to the congratulations email from me to claim their prize. That means, for this specific giveaway, it will end on December 7th at 11:59pm PST and the winner will be chosen on December 8th.


And, finally, the winner must have a US mailing address. International shipping seems to cost an arm and a leg these days, and customs is a major headache, so to make it easier (and cheaper) on the brands who have offered up their products, the winners must live in United States of America (or at least have an address we can ship to within the US).

With that said, BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERS! And don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see what is up next in my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas (I promise you do NOT want to miss out on any of these giveaways!)!

PS Just in case you aren't the lucky winner, you can still use the coupon code "GIMME" for 10% off through 12/31 (because EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! So go get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process!

Amanda said...

I’m SHOCKED there isn’t chips and salsa. Why eat a taco when you can just eat the chips and salsa. It’s totally a meal in my book!!

Bree at Clarity Defined said...

Run all the miles, eat all the ice cream!! But legit love your suggestion of chips and salsa... plus, when there are more chips, you must go to the store and get more salsa. But then you run out of chips and so you have to go get more to finish the salsa. The cycle of chips and salsa never ends.
