Day 1 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE 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 absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) 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 random winner will be selected, winning a $100 gift card for Sarah Marie Design Studio.

I've been a fan of SMDS for like... EVER! Although, to be honest, recently the hubby and I have been trying to simplify our lives, which means less stuff, so I haven't ordered anything new in a while since I'm trying to keep my purchasing to a minimum (another reason is because I love like EVERYTHING and if I buy one thing, I'll have to buy at least ten things).


With that said, I'm lucky enough to have a few pieces in my closet and rock them often (maybe that means I'll be able to justify replacing them soon, right?! Or maybe Santa will pop by my post before Christmas... #ISwearImOnTheNiceList).


Let's just say when my last order arrived 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 so I still feel covered, but can add a extra pop of color). And I'm pretty sure the saying on this was PERFECT for when I attempted to PR at my fall goal marathon, right?!


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


And tell me this tank isn't an absolute MUST-HAVE! I mean... I literally live in it while the hubby and I are adventuring. #WhoUsesThePhoneToActuallyCallAnymore #NotMe #PleaseJustText (The design comes in a sweatshirt too! #Need)


I can't forget about the AWESOME Steve Prefontaine pin. I had to hide it when it arrived because the hubby tried to steal it. So freakin' amazing! Legit, this is my fave pin EVER! (But the Shalane one is a close second with the Meb one in third.)


And let's chat about the moisture wicking hat! Normally I run in a trucker, but this is totally a step up in my headgear game! It even has UV protection in the fabric - SCORE! PS Word on the street is more truckers are in the works - awwww yeah!

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 choose your own adventure. You get $100 to use towards whatever you would like to order - pins, tanks, drinkware, sweatshirts, hats, jewelry, nail wraps, bags, greeting cards, 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 randomly 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 coupon code "CARLEEXMAS" for 15% off your order until 12/25 (because EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! So go get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process!
