Thursday Randoms

3 May

Hey everyone! It’s 10 p.m. already – where did the day go! A few random shorty things and I’m off to bed.

1) I got a haircut tonight – the only difference is I added short bangs. What do you think?

Me New Do

2) I have a job interview tomorrow. Yup. A new job (doing what I do now), in a new place, near my favorite friends. Wish me luck!

3) I have some WICKED awesome guest posts set up for you starting tomorrow morning – you do not want to miss them, any of them, stay tuned!

4) Clean Eating Week 3 is going smashingly! I was really admiring my abs in the mirror the other day, and realizing how much better I feel! I’m loving it.

Speaking of clean eats – you guessed it, time for another giveaway. I hope you guys aren’t tired of the mega celebrations that have been going on this week. I also hope ya’ll come back to read when I’m not throwing tons of fun presents at you!

This giveaway is in the form of my favorite must have daily snack:

LB_Variety

From the first time I discovered Larabar I was in love.

These babies are:

  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan
  • Safe for peanut allergies (except for the flavors that contain peanuts)
  • Soy free (except for flavors containing chocolate chips)
  • Kosher
  • Free of coloring, additives, and preservatives

Many Larabar varieties contain just 3-4 ingredients! My favorite flavor is Peanut Butter & Jelly – it’s made with dates, peanuts, and cherries. And I kid you not it tastes like a PBJ. Amazing, really. I eat one 5 or more days a week. Sometimes I eat 2 (Like today).

So, how can you get your hands on a case of 16 Larabar flavors? Easy.

Here’s how:

1) Follow me on Twitter. (Required) https://twitter.com/#!/runcupcake

2) Follow Larabar on Twitter. (Required) https://twitter.com/#!/larabar

3) Go to the Larabar website and tell me which flavor you’d like to try most. (Optional)

4) Tell me something random about your day, because it’s 10:15 on Thursday, I’m tired, and I’m not feeling wicked creative right now. (Optional)

5) Tweet: I want to win a case of @runcupcake’s favorite snack, @larabar. If you do too, enter here: http://wp.me/p25oLf-Kw (optional)

This giveaway is open to all residents of the U.S.

This giveaway will end on Wednesday, May 9th, at 5 p.m.

Don’t forget to enter my other giveaways:

Chobani

Nuun (EXTENDED! Now open until 6 p.m. on Monday, May 7th)

I hope everyone had a great day, send me positive vibes for my interview tomorrow!

Signature

P.S. You may hear from me one more time between now and the rest of this weekend, but that’s it til Monday night! Have a great, happy, safe weekend everyone! XOXO

    Just realized this is for U.S. peeps only which is odd cause LARABAR ships to me in Canada. Good luck to the winner!

    • runcupcake May 4, 2012 at 7:26 am #

      I’ll double check with the folks at Larabar, but their website said the variety pack could only be shipped in the U.S.

  46. Kate May 4, 2012 at 8:11 am #

    I LOVE Larabars! The first time I tried one was 4 years ago after finishing the Country Music 1/2 Marathon! I fell in love at first bite! Now that I follow the Primal Diet it’s one of the only “energy” bars that I can eat (which doesn’t make me sad!!) My favorite is Blueberry Muffin followed closely by Choc. Chip Cookie Dough.
