Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card

Heh! Guess who got out of seeing Fury last night. :)

Not that I’m totally against seeing it, mind you. I like Mr. Pitt, but I wasn’t in the mood for a heavy movie with a bunch of dudes.

Instead, I experienced the glory that is The Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake Pie. Picture it: a pecan pie with a pumpkin cheesecake layered on top of it and two huge dollops of whipped cream on the side…

YES! YES!!

After that we just came home, and I took a really long shower and did a body scrub and a hair mask. Then we watched some TV before bed.

Today I have half-marathon final details to attend to, like I have to paint my nails and straighten my hair, because I’ve discovered that I like running with straight hair. And I have to finalize my music playlist. I know this: the last three miles will be powered by Bloc Party.

Have a great weekend, my friend, and good luck in the giveaway. Your nephew says “mroww!”

Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card

Only one long training run left before the half marathon next week! I think I finally got the chafing under control, thanks to the CW-X Running Bra and good old-fashioned Vaseline, and I’m going to try out the neat-looking Roo Sport Fitness Pouch, a small belt-less pouch with a magnetic fastener for carrying your cell phone, ID, credit card and, in my case, two Tri Berry GU Energy Gels, today on the treadmill.

But first! — Gilmore Girls and giveaways. :)

I am so hooked on that show it’s ridiculous. I don’t want to go anywhere or do anything else. I just want to sit on the couch watching Gilmore Girls and fantasize about living in the town of Stars Hollow. I could have breakfast and coffee at Luke’s Diner and then go shop for makeup at Stars Hollow Beauty Supply, LOL!

See, I told you. Ridiculous.

Well, that’s it for me. Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway, and hopefully I see you in the comments or on Twitter and Instagram today. Have a great caturday, my friend! Good luck!

Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card

When the first words you say to someone in the morning are, “I think I want a Siberian Forest Cat,” it’s hard not to laugh! :)

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. Guess who didn’t watch Gone Girl last night. (Did you go? Was it good?)

The timing just didn’t work out… I wanted to go to bed early instead to power up for my 10-mile run today, but then I went and got insomnia and barely slept at all last night. I just lay awake in bed looking at cat pics on my phone…

Gotta love it when things work out, haha. I’m going to need a little more coffee than usual today…

In other news, it’s giveaway time!!! Siberian Forest Cat wishes you good luck.

Enter this week's Sephora giveaway

I’m so exci-ted,
I’m so exci-ted,
I’m going hi-king,
I’m going hi-king.

Yeah, I’m so excited! I’m going hiking with a girlfriend up at Muir Woods over in Mill Valley this morning, so I’m having a quick cup of coffee, a couple pancakes, and then I have to bolt.

I gotta tell ya…this whole blogging thing? Lots of indoor time. I’m really looking forward to just walking around outside.

It’s not going to be intense. We’re doing a loop around this one popular hike, but it’s sunny today, and the area is heavily forested redwood trees, so it should be fun. Maybe I’ll even see a Sasquatch or a porcupine or something interesting like that. :)

I hope you’re doing something other than chores and errands today. I know all of that stuff has to get done, and you’re probably the person who has to do it a lot of the time, but dang it! — screw that. Do something fun today instead.

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway, babe. Onward and upward! Talk to you soon (maybe from the redwoods).

Comment to Win a $75 Walgreens Gift Card and a Crest Sensi-Stop Strips Prize Package

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

Congratulations, Celia! :) You’re the winner for your comment, “I think I’m probably the only person in the world who loves those peanut butter taffy candies they give out on halloween. The Necco ones. They’re almost like church lady candies, but I cannot get enough. I mention this because I am addicted to all things sweet and I’m pretty sure my teeth are just gonna peace-out one of these days. I have really good dental hygiene but there’s a tiny voice in my head (maybe my mouth?) pleading for me to take it easy on the sugar- it is unfortunately drowned out by all the happy ‘nom nom’ noises.”

Win a $75 Walgreens gift card, Crest Sensi-Care Strips and more!

Comment to win a $75 Walgreens gift card and a prize pack of Crest Sensi-Care products for yo’ sensitive teeth

Me-OWCH! The only things more painful than catching a kitty claw in the corner of your cuticles or having to hear about Ryan and Eva’s “alleged” baby (until actual DNA evidence comes to light, I refuse to believe it’s true) are my sensitive teeth.

Sensitive teeth: I haz them. Having anything cold touch my back teeth (particularly the back teeth on my upper left) is about as much fun as losing a beloved brow pencil on vacation.

In other words, not fun at all.

How can Crest Sensi-Stop Strips help?

Because you know I’m not about to give up my Three Twins ice cream, I use a number of accoutrements to keep my cold-sensitive chompers in check, including a toothpaste and mouthwash made for sensitive teeth.

I also started using these new Sensi-Stop Strips by Crest…

Crest Sensi-Stop Strips

They’re thin, flexible strips that you apply directly to your sensitive teeth for a targeted, fast-acting desensitizing treatment. All you do is peel one of the strips, and stick it on the outside of your sensitive teeth, right where the teeth meet your gums, for 10 minutes. (The strips are so thin that you almost can’t even feel them.)

Then, after removing the strip, wait 30 minutes before eating, drinking, rinsing or brushing.

Using a strip like this, versus a toothpaste or a mouthwash for sensitive teeth, keeps the key desensitizing ingredients in contact with the surface of the tooth longer, which builds a lasting barrier and relieves the symptoms of dental sensitivity for up to 30 days.

It also works almost instantly! None of that having to wait days for relief.

Using the strips, which work shockingly fast (I’m talking within 30 minutes, versus the toothpaste, which can take up to a week for me), my teeth don’t freak out as much when I have cold drinks and ice cream.

Good news for my ice cream habit! Bad news for my muffin top…

September 27: The Walgreens Saturdate with Crest Sensi

Speaking of ice cream, Walgreens carries it! :) But seriously, if you have sensitive teeth or know someone who does, stop by your local Walgreens store on Saturday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Crest coupons and free samples of Crest Sensi toothpaste, and pick up a box of these awesome Crest Sensi-Stop Strips ($17.99) while you’re there.

And now, it’s giveaway time!

Crest Sensi-Stop Strips Giveaway!

This could all be yours. Sensitive teeth sufferers, rejoice!

Question: Does one have to suffer from sensitive teeth to enter and win this week’s Crest giveaway?

Answer: one does not.

But if one does, they’ll probably be extra stoked about the prize. :)

I’ve partnered with Crest and Walgreens on a prize pack worth more than $100. One lucky winner will receive…
