Random Updates + A Yummy Giveaway

by Courtney on July 19, 2010

I’m happy to report that Maniac McGee has finally calmed down over here. He’s now in his “I’m just chillin’, so don’t bug me” mood. ;)

**I realized that I forgot to mention something to you guys! I have recently registered a new domain for my website, so you’ll be able to find me at http://sweettoothsweetlife.com. (It’s still the same base domain, just with the “.wordpress” ending.) In case you have me linked anywhere, make sure you change it over to new URL so you can still find me! :)

**Manicure Update**

If you remember, last Tuesday I went and tried out the new Shellac manicure which is supposed to last for 14 days, chip free! Many of you asked that I keep you updated, so here’s where we’re at so far, almost 1 week in:

Left Hand – A couple small chips on the middle & pointer finger. I expected these to happen after I realized that these spots were missed with the top coat while I was getting them done.

IMG_3256

Right Hand – Chip Free!! :-D

IMG_3257

I’m definitely impressed that they’ve lasted with so few chips, considering they’ve been through gardening, extreme dish washing, and lengthy pool lounging. 8-)

Lunch

It’s slim pickins’ in the house, since I didn’t make it to the grocery store this weekend. I got my veggie fix with some baby carrots & grape tomatoes + hommus.

IMG_3252

I also lightly toasted a very blueberry Alternative Bagel, and topped it with some light whipped butter and raspberry Polaner All-Fruit spread.

IMG_3251

IMG_3249

I was still in need of a little something after lunch…something to satisfy my chocolate craving. :-P So I broke out one of my Deep Chocolate VitaTops from the freezer. I simply nuked it in the microwave, and within 30 seconds, my chocolate craving was happily fulfilled. :-D

IMG_3255

Do you guys remember about a month ago when Vitalicious sent me this fantastic sampler pack? There was a TON of VitaTops in there, but I’d say I’m making a pretty good dent in it. ;)

IMG_3254

Well, after speaking with the nice people at Vitalicious, they want to let one lucky reader in on a deluxe sampler pack of their own to try, too!

To Enter:

  1. Go to the VitaTops website, then leave a comment on this post telling me which flavor you’d be most excited to try.
  2. Tweet about the giveaway: “Check out the VitaTops Giveaway on @sweettoothcourt http://wp.me/pSDLe-Tv

I will randomly pick a winner tomorrow evening, and announce it along with the winner of the Exercise TV giveaway! :)

Hey Courtneey! I have been reading your lovely blog for awhile, but this is my first time commenting, because I love vita tops! I ordered the deep chocolate one awhile back and I LOVED them! I was not able to order some more due to the hefty shipping price, as a college student anything and everything counts! ;) As for the flavor… reading ur posts made me crave the CranBran please!

I love vita tops! I discovered them last year and fell in love with how tastey they are!

I loved all the flavors I have tried so far which are peanut butter fudge, double chocolate, corn muffin, and apple bran I think its called but the one I can not wait to try out is the new apple struesel crumble one .. It sounds like it would be so good!

Good sized portion and good for you.. yes please!

Why pick one? I’m thinking a Chocolate sampler pack would be the best way to go. Who can choose between peanut butter fudge, chocolate mint, triple chocolate chunk….

I’d love the cornbread flavor

91 LiveForTheRun July 20, 2010 at 2:39 pm

Don’t make me choose, but if I must…you can’t “top” Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip. Get in my face.

I think that if I had that box, there would be no way I’d leave the house!
