Day 4 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 4 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 are: 4 nuun immunity Prize Packs.


For today, DAY FOUR, four winners will each win 2 tubes of nuun immunity: orange citrus and 2 of blueberry tangerine.

I will be the first to admit that for the majority of the time, I tend to hydrate with water. This isn't a huge deal, well, until you are sweating. Science wasn't my favorite subject, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be surprised to know that sweat contains more than just standard H2O, which means you need to replenish more than that during and after your workouts.

One of the 'things' you need to refill are electrolytes. Electrolytes play a key function in maintaining fluid balance, and supporting normal body function - can you say 'importante'?! [that's 'important 'in Spanish; another non-favorite subject].

That's where nuun comes in! nuun contains an optimal blend of electrolytes which keeps you hydrated for all levels of activities - whether you're running a marathon or a marathon of errands. The hydration aid comes in tablet form, so it's easy to pack for racecations or throw in a desk drawer to have after a sweaty runch. [For those of you who've never tried it, it's less of a 'sports drink, in-your-face' sort of taste, but if you like more flavor, just add an extra tablet or two.]

And seeing as this is the time of the year when folks often get sick (due to the colder temps, being run down from the lack of sleep and the busyness of the season, eating less than ideal at holiday parties, etc), I thought featuring the new nuun immunity line for the giveaway would be PERFECT! nuun's immunity propriety mix of botanicals and electrolytes aids in the protection of your immune system. With a balance of anti-inflammatories (including turmeric & ginger), free-radical fighting antioxidants (such as elderberry & echinacea), and their hydration-optimized blend of electrolytes, nuun immunity packs a triple punch in supporting immune health and protecting against common cold and flu symptoms.


During the summer I tend to be better about hydrating (maybe it's because I sweat a lot, and when I sweat it triggers a reminder that I need to be replenishing what my body is losing), but it's often just plain water. I was stoked to mix it up a bit while trying to boost my immune system (because, let's be real, as awesome as H2O is, it can get a little boring).

Source

Each tablet contains: elderberry extract - plant-based antioxidant / organic turmeric - plant-based anti-inflammatory + antioxidant / echinacea purpurea - plant-based antioxidant / organic ginger powder - plant-based anti-inflammatory / zinc/selenium - antioxidants / vitamins a, c, d and e - antioxidants / electrolytes - magnesium, potassium, chloride, calcium, sodium / organic sugar - binder, sweetener, helps facilitate absorption of vitamins/minerals / citric acid - plays key role in effervescence, used for production / stevia leaf extract - zero-calorie, plant-based sweetener / avocado oil - clean, plant-based oil for production / rice concentrate - flow agent/anti-clumping agent, used for production.

I'm not a doctor (nor do I play one on TV), so I'm not 100% sure about the exact science, but it seems like this may be able to help a sista (or brotha) out! Sip on at your desk, rehydrate with it after an evening run, or even make a hot tea with it if you feel under the weather. A healthy immune system starts with proper hydration, so let's get our drink on!


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 random winners being picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winners 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 10th at 11:59pm PST and the FOUR winners will be chosen on December 11th.


And, finally, the winners 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 one of the FOUR lucky winners, you can use "CARLEE25" for 25% off through 1/31/18 (EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! {Details: You'll need to log into your account at nuunlife.com/shop before applying the discount and it's only available once per customer.} Get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process!
