$1,000 Or The Ability To Twerk It? I Can't Decide Either.

Well after yesterday's post I'm not so sure today's post is going to be needed.
Turns out several of you would work for many a things other than cash money motto. From massages (hello, genius), to potty trained dogs, and of course for the most important thing--the ability to twerk it. I am so thankful that I am not the only one with dreams of someday being a master twerker. But because I can't just give out potty trained dogs on my blog, I am resorting to cash. Like a lot of it. Turns out August can be an expensive month for those of you with children who are headed back to school (bless you), or for those of us who decided to plan a vacation for fall. Because us bloggers so genuinely care about your needs and financial state we thought we would help you out by giving you one thousand dollars. I mean sure we may receive a few more social media followers in the process but it's all about you today. And our social media numbers. No but really it's all about you. And us. Whatever. All I know is that if I could enter to win a freaking thousand dollars for doing absolutely nothing, I'd be all over that. So I guess now is your time to do just that, get all over it. And remember--ONE OF YOU WILL ACTUALLY WIN ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS. Just in case you forgot. 


For Lauren and Lauren// Sami's Shenanigans// Back East Blonde
A Complete Waste of Make Up// Pretty in Pink Megan// Lipgloss and Crayons
Helene in Between// Shannon Hearts// Freckled Fox
Living in Yellow// Crowley Party

Winner will be announced on Wednesday, August 14th.  International readers may enter, but the prize will be sent in the form of a $1,000 visa gift card in American dollars.  ALL ENTRIES WILL BE VERIFIED.

  53. If I won $1,000, I would donate $500 to the Berks County Humane Society (BCHS) in Reading, PA. I have two adorable pups (Jessie, a Jug - Jack Russell Terrier/Pug mix and Charlie, a Chiweenie - Chihuahua/Dachsaund mix) and I use the BCHS as my primary Vet. I see so many animals being dropped off that is breaks my heart. The BCHS does all that they can to care for these animals until they find a home, but they struggle financially and are running out of space. I try to donate as often as I can, but the real world is hard sometimes and I don't have many opportunities to do as much as I want. It would be an amazing experience to be able to hand them a check for $500 and just say "Thank You!".

    The other $500 would go towards my student loans. While going to college was an AMAZING experience, the debt that it has put me in is tremendous. Every little bit counts!

    Good luck to all the contestants! I know whoever wins will make a difference in some way.
