Beat the winter blues – giveaway time!

10 Jan

I’m pretty freaking excited about this post. It’s my first official Lincoln Park on a Lark giveaway!

So let’s get right down to the good stuff – what do you win?

Well, for starters, one of these:

Worth $50 – that’s a lot of morning latte, hot cocoa to warm up, or whatever your poison is!

And, because I love you guys and want to spoil you even more, I’m whipping up a (completely vegan) sinful batch of black and white cookies that I’ll mail along with the gift card.

So what do you have to do to win this winter pick me up? There are three ways, and you enter three times (once each way.)

1) Leave a comment on this entry telling me your name and what you’d buy with the gift card.

2) Follow me on twitter and tweet this:

I entered to win $50 to Starbucks and homemade black & white cookies from @_hellolover -you can too!

3) Write an entry on your blog about the giveaway, featuring the above link back, and leave me a comment here letting me know where I can check it out.

The giveaway will end at midnight on January 31st, and I’ll announce the winner by February 2nd.

Good luck!

    Ohh black and white cookies sound good!
    I drink Starbucks green tea all the time, I would get that!

  2. Layla January 10, 2011 at 7:34 pm #

    Oh gosh. Both of those things sound heavenly! I have never had vegan cookies and would love to try them (or try making them). I’d buy a LOT of lattes and maybe a scone here and there. You could get a lot for $50!

      Hey little sis (really she’s my sister so I can type this and get away with it)

      Weren’t you just thinking about getting a gym membership. Here’s an idea, cut out the lattes and you can lose the calories in that and call it a day 🙂

      Your big bro!

    The cookies sound to die for. I made a cranberry batch once that was completely vegan and my meat eating hubby gobbled them right up. They were dreamy.

  80. Abby Bean January 31, 2011 at 3:25 pm #

    And, may I just say, OMG: vegan black & whites!

  81. Sarina January 31, 2011 at 8:31 pm #

    $50 at Starbucks? I could go crazy for a while. At the top of my list would be an iced chai tea latte and the runner ups for other days would include iced caramel macchiatos, skinny vanilla lattes, and passion tea lemonades when it’s nice and sunny outside. Thanks for such a generous giveaway and those cookies are totally drool worthy! xo

  82. kristin March 16, 2011 at 7:12 pm #
