Shutterfly’s Long Live Summer Photo Contest

I bet you are taking a lot of fun pictures this summer, between the beach, parks, and vacations. I know I am! I love taking lots of pictures so when my daughter is older she can look back on all of the fun activities that we have done.

Shutterfly has a new contest this summer called Long Live Summer Photo Contest. This is a contest that is on Facebook. It started Monday July 9th and runs for 5 weeks. 

You can have a chance to win a trip for four to The Bahamas and a professional photo shoot so you'll remember your vacation forever!

This contest is so easy, you just need to update your favorite photo and caption based on the theme of the week.  You can also get gifts from Shutterfly just for entering!  You can enter at any point during the 5 week sweepstakes period.

I already have an idea of the pictures I'm going to post. I have a favorite from the Fourth of July parade for the Americana week and a great picture from an indoor waterpark we went to for the Water Fun week. 

This contest is so easy to enter, just click here to bring you to the Shutterfly Facebook Page.  Good Luck and I hope someone I know wins some awesome prizes!

Dry Idea

I was able to participate in the Purex promotion for Dry Idea. I received a full size Dry Idea Advanced Idea deodorant in Powder Fresh to try out. 

This was a roll on deodorant, and it was the first time I have ever tried one.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it went on and how well it worked. Since it is summer time, I've been wearing sleeveless shirts a lot as well and this never left white marks on any of my shirts.

The scent was very fresh and not too strong, which I really enjoyed. I usually purchase a Powder Fresh scent in another brand, and I was happy with how this one smelled, both while putting it on and throughout the day. 

Dry Idea is also holding a sweepstakes with $1000 in prizes, with the grand prize of $500 and 10 $50 second place winners. You can enter the sweepstakes here.

Good Luck and I hope that someone I know will win one of the prizes!
