Vlog: A Rawxies Review [aka my newest snack addiction] + a GIVEAWAY!

As a gluten-free vegan, I’m pretty easily excited by finding just about any store-bought item that fits into my dietary requirements. Depending on the location & circumstance I can find excitement in anything from a rice cake to a well-made, allergy-free cupcake. It’s kind of all relative.

That being said, it’s not often that a pre-packaged gluten-free/vegan food item also excites the health coach in me. Packaging usually means preservatives, additives, & cheap sweeteners which makes my inner health nut crinkle her neti-cleansed nose. That’s why I’m so excited about the product in today’s video review: Rawxies. They’re just pure, wholesome goodness that happen to also be delicious.

Check out what I have to say about these yummy little cookies:

Faux Fashion Friday: A Stylish Surprise & GIVEAWAY! – CONTEST CLOSED

Last week, after months of drooling over their online inventory of vintage & vintage-inspired dresses, I placed my very first order with ModCloth.com.

At $15, their Stylish Surprise grab bag was just too tempting to resist…so, despite the fact that I had no idea what might arrive, I grabbed it.

What was inside? It could have been anything from a t-shirt to a winter coat, but I had been desperately hoping for a cute little dress…and it paid off:

scarf – a gift [from my grandmother]
dress w/ belt – ModCloth
tank top – h&m
tights – h&m
boots – vintage [from my mother]

Adorable, right? Unfortunately, it’s better suited for a darling with autumn coloring & an hourglass figure.  I had fun shooting these photos, but I started thinking it may not be a dress I wear that often, especially not with pink hair.

So, dear readers, I’ve decided to do VTB’s very first giveaway!

Would you like to give this dress a good home? Here’s 3 ways to enter to win:

Entry One: Leave a comment below letting me know your favorite VTB feature. We’ve been trying lots of new things lately and I’d love to hear your feedback! Do you live for Wellness Wednesday, look forward to Make Something Monday, or eagerly await Faux Fashion Friday? Let me know! Your comment on this post is worth one entry.
Entry Two: Visit our Facebook page and show some love by “liking” Vegans Taste Better. That’s worth another entry.*
Entry Three: Fly on over to Twitter & copy & paste the following tweet exactly –

I just entered VTB’s Stylish Surprise Giveaway from @michelleshea ! http://michellesheawalker.com #vegan #fashion

That’s worth a third entry.

That means, you can be entered to win up to 3 times if you complete all of the above request!

The winner will be selected at random by drawing & announced next Friday! Good Luck!

*If you have already “liked” VTB  on Facebook before this contest opened, please just leave me a comment below to let me know you’re interested in being entered in the contest & you’ll get two entries for one action. Thanks!

Thanks to all who entered.
The winner will be announced during Faux Fashion Friday on 3/16/12.
