Giveaway Winner // I Hope You’re Ready

i meant for this post to be up this morning, but i was hanging out with my friend izzy, and i’m just now finding time to write this. we went kayaking, made flower crowns, watched “moana,” went to dairy queen . . . i really love izzy.

anyway.

thank you for all the entries! i didn’t expect to get that many. you guys are amazing.

of course, there can only be one winner (though i would send prizes to all of you if i could). ready to find out who won the twelve pairs of earrings?

congratulations . . .

Hope!

she runs the lovely blog the nerd notebook — which you should definitely check out and follow.

so, my dear, i will be sending you an email tomorrow with details on how to claim your prize. if i don’t get a reply by midnight, april 15th, i will have to select a new winner.

did anyone catch how i used the winner’s name in the title? i think i’m clever.

please be safe, guys. i really love you and i’m glad you’re alive.

Giveaway Reminder

just so you know, today is the last day to enter my giveaway. the winner will receive twelve pairs of earrings. make sure to enter before midnight. and there’s still time to get extra entries. you can see all the details here.

that’s all I wanted to say, but i don’t want this post to be super short. so i’m going to write about whatever.

i thought kellin quinn (from the band sleeping with sirens) was a girl when i first heard him sing. he’s got a freaking amazing voice, though.

i was writing down the names of bands i want to listen to. it’s a rather long list. THERE’S JUST TOO MUCH GOOD MUSIC IN THIS WORLD.

it’s seventy-four degrees right now and i’m wearing all black: black skinny jeans, black hoodie, black fall out boy shirt. black is just a great color, you know? so comforting.

i made pasta today, and i somehow managed to cook the right amount! *throws confetti*

i think that’s all. thanks for reading this rather pointless post.

Earring Giveaway

Hey, guys! I’ve got something fun planned for this blog: I’m hosting a giveaway!

There’s not really a specific reason for it. I haven’t reached a huge milestone for followers, and it’s not my blogiversary, or anything like that. I just love you guys and wanted to do something cool for you. :)

I should show you what I’m giving away, huh?

The winner of the giveaway will receive twelve pairs of earrings. They’re pretty much brand new. Each pair has only been worn for about one minute.

Top to bottom: wishing bones, wings, gold bars, “love.”

Top to bottom: rhinestones, pearls, triangles, bows.

Top to bottom: birds, arrows, small rhinestones, black cats.

The black cat earrings have the kittens’ tiny lil’ butts instead of normal earring backings, so it looks like the cats are stuck halfway through your ear (which seems a bit twisted, in my opinion. FREE THE KITTIES!).

A few of the posts are a little crooked, but you can’t tell once you put them in.

How to Enter:

Just leave a comment saying you would like to enter. Make sure to get a parent’s permission before entering, because if you win, I’ll need your address to ship the prize to you.

Sorry — this giveaway is only open to residents of the USA.

Also, please make sure that the email you enter in the comment form is correct. If you’re the winner, I’ll contact you using that email address.

For extra entries:

  • Follow Let’s Be Lost.
  • Post about my giveaway on your blog and link back to this post.
  • Share this post on Pinterest.
  • Share this post on Facebook.
  • Tell your friends about this giveaway by sending them the link.

Each of the things above will get you one extra entry. You can only do each of them once (except for the tell-a-friend one — you can do that as many times as you want, but tell a different friend each time). After you do it, leave me a separate comment for each extra entry saying what you did.

The last day to enter is April 10th.

Good luck!

Book Giveaway Update

Hey! So, I realized that I did some bad planning concerning my giveaway. Who won my book giveaway was going to be posted on May 1st. But the first challenge of CWWC 2016 was also going to be posted on May 1st.

So I’ve decided to bump up the giveaway. You can know enter up until midnight on April 29th. That way, the winner will be announced April 30th, and May 1st will be open for CWWC. :)

Book Giveaway {for 120 Followers}

UPDATE: ENTER BY MIDNIGHT ON APRIL 29th!

poster

Remember how I promised to post a book giveaway when I reached 120 followers? Well, it’s finally here (even if the count is now 127)!

Here’s what I’m giving away:

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.

Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein

Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein.

Both books are brand-new and in a great condition. They each have a dot (made in marker) on the bottom, which is because I got them at a bookfair.

I’ve read both of these books, and I enjoyed each of them. I hope my two lucky winners will like them, as well!

There will be two winners. The first place winner will get to choose whether they will receive The Mysterious Benedict Society or Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library. Winner #2 will get the book Winner #1 didn’t want.

Ready to enter?

Comment on this post, saying that you would like to enter, and the name of one of your favorite books. I’ll pick the two winners using Random.org.

Sorry — this giveaway is only open to residents of the USA.
