Review & a GiVeAwAy!!

One of my favorite parts of being a couponer/blogger is getting the mail.

 Serioiusly I love seeing what is in there.

One day, I was sitting around working really hard when there was a thud and my doorbell rang.

I wasn't expecting anything so I wasn't sure what it would be.

I was so EXCITED when I opened the box.

How cute is that pkg?!

New products to try and review. Companies want you to give an *unbiased* review on their products. I wasn't sure I could be unbiased because I LOVE Carmex! I have for a looong time. I have a rather serious addiction to chapstick and well, Carmex is right at the top of my list.

So when I was able to try their new flavors, I was all for it!

The Carmex lime twist, still gives you that "tingle" which lets you know it is working BUT it has a great lime flavor that I love! The Carmex Vanilla flavor is more subtle than the lime, but still provides you with that sweet hint of vanilla. I honestly loved them both. The lime is a much stronger flavor, so if you don't like that, I would recommend the vanilla. They both have an SPF of 15 which I also love! Oh Carmex, how I love thee!

I was given this great package (as seen in above pictures) and you have the chance to win one too!

We love the picnic blanket. Soft on one side but the other is a waterproof mat that keeps you dry. My kids have used it quite a bit in the backyard. However, I have started keeping it in the car so that I can use it when the need arises.

So would you like to win one? Of course you do! The first thing to do is leave a comment letting me know that you want to be entered.

For a 2nd entry you need to "like" my page on Facebook. It is California Clippin'.

For a 3rd entry, blog about this giveaway on your own blog!

Make sure to have your friends say who sent them, so that you get credit for them also!

Now for the important stuff:

This giveaway is only open to residents of the U.S. (sorry Guam friends!) because it is being shipped by the company and not me.

I will be drawing a winner on Sat Aug. 27th so make sure you have lots of entries! Oh and I know it is annoying, but leave a seperate comment for each time you have entered!

**Carmex sent me products to review and try, but I was not compensated for my review. All opinions are MINE*

the blanket has a large pocket and folds into itself!! Love it!

I liked your FB page months ago, so I saw your post there, but I also came over because of Tammy Shelton who posted on FB fan page.

I don't know why that last post said Anonymous but it was from AndreaD again for my second entry. First time commenting, I guess I am not sure what I am doing.
