Tuesdays are always the roughest day of the week for me. Although I dread Mondays when the weekend is coming to an end, I feel like I’m always far more exhausted on Tuesdays and reach the apex of longing for the weekend again. Does anyone else have a rough time waking up on Tuesdays? Well hopefully I can brighten yours with my blog’s first-ever giveaway! But first you have to read about my recent eats.
Since Kevin’s late-night working has continued into this week, I needed another go-to dinner for one. I’ve been hankering for a giant salad that would keep me full. Although I’m a meat-eater, this salad happens to be vegetarian. I try to go meatless for some meals to help balance the meat I do eat.
I layered on my plate:
- spring mix
- white beans
- chopped baby carrots
- Morningstar Farms Chik Patty
And then topped it with Annie’s Goddess salad dressing.
Holy deliciousness. It was yummy and filling. The Morningstar “chicken” goes really well with the Goddess dressing. I love a hearty salad.
It is no secret that I love OpenSky. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s what they call “Twitter for shopping.” You can follow celebrity curators, which gives you access to their favorite things on sale. Blog superstars Kath, Tina and Gina are all curators, and so are various actors, models, etc. I scored a great deal on BIC Bands through OpenSky and recently bought my newest obsession: stainless steel straws.
Drinking through a straw is just more fun. Through OpenSky and curator Lulu Powers, I bought a bundle of eight stainless steel straws and a cleaner made by Stainless Cups. They’re great for the environment and make your drink taste even colder. I especially love them for summertime cocktails, iced coffee and motivating me to drink more water.
About two weeks after I received my shipment from OpenSky, I received a second shipment from them. I opened it to see what it was and realized it was my exact same order again. I called OpenSky to tell them they had shipped it to me twice, and they told me not to worry about shipping it back, so I decided that I am going to pass it on to one of you! OpenSky has awesome customer service, so I wanted to make sure to share that.
What you get:
- 4-9.5” long straws
- 4-7” long straws
- 1-straw cleaning brush
According to Stainless Cups’ website, this is a $22 value. The straws are made of stainless steel so they won’t rust and are dishwasher safe.
Leave a comment on this post with what your favorite drink would be to use the straw for. This giveaway will be open for one week until next Tuesday, August 30 at midnight eastern daylight time. I’ll use Random.org to select a winner. That’s it!
Note: Each straw and cleaner is individually wrapped, but the paper bag they all came in is open from when I was investigating what came in the mail. Also, this is only open to U.S. residents.
P.S. If you want to sign up for OpenSky, feel free to do so through this link, which gives me credit for referring you.
I hope you’re as excited about this giveaway as I am!
