Awesome Life Friday #3 (Amoda Tea Giveaway)


Welcome to Awesome Life Friday!  I hope it's been a great week for you all!  A few of us have been dealing with various winter illnesses, but for the most part, nothing that lingers. Even while under the weather, it's been so much fun to read all the post you shared last week and we can't wait to see what you've got for us this time!

Here's what we've shared over the past few days:


Review: Ready. Set. Tan

A few of our reviewers are military family members stationed at Ft. Irwin, CA, which is a very remotely located Army Post in the Mohave Desert.  When possible, we like to highlight local small businesses that offer services to Ft. Irwin residents, and Courtney shares with us her experience with a custom spray tan service.  Even if you're not at Ft. Irwin, read what it's like to go to one!



Sausage Potato Soup in a Homemade Bread Bowl

Meanwhile, those of us not living in the nice warm desert are all about tummy warming substantial soups, and Lauren's got a real winner here!

  

Review: SipSnap Lids

 SipSnap Lids are silicone stretchable toppers for glasses or cups, providing either a 'sippy cup' style lid, or a straw to turn your glass into a go-cup for cold drinks.  Jackie spent some time experimenting with them and shares her experiences in this review.



Amoda Tea Monthly Tasting Box

Lauren had the good fortune of being able to review Amoda Tea's Winter Tasting Box, a monthly themed sampler of small batch and artisan teas.

And now, Amoda Tea has agreed to let us offer a Giveaway!  One reader will receive Amoda Tea's February Tasting Box when it ships out on Feb. 8. We don't know yet what the theme will be, but we can guess it will be equal parts romantic and decadent!



To enter the giveaway, leave a comment in this entry as instructed by the Rafflecopter, then leave the name you commented under and your email in the box in the Rafflecopter entry. (This allows us to contact you if you win!)  This will open up additional optional entries to increase your odds of winning.

This giveaway is open to US and CANADIAN RESIDENTS ONLY 
and will end just before midnight ET on 1-30-15. 

The winner will be notified by email within 24 hours after the end of the giveaway.  In order to claim the giveaway prize, the winner will need to respond within 24 hours of notification, or an alternate winner will be selected.

Good luck everyone!

 Time for some Featured Posts!


http://rchreviews.blogspot.com

Once again, everyone made it really difficult for us to select only three posts when we had so many we dearly loved.  But there were a few that each of us were in full agreement about.  We knew these were the ones from the chorus of 'ooh, I want to do that!' that burst out when we looked at these.



Also Known As "What we're ALL having for breakfast this week."

Yes, January IS the perfect time to read all about dandelions!

One of us is totally going to make this. The others are going to learn to sew so we can.

 Congratulations to each of our Featured blogs and thank you so much for sharing with us!  If you like, grab yourself a button!
