My bad…

It’s been a little bit since my last update. I’m finally adjusting to college, and I was about to start my 2nd week when… BAM. Hello, swine flu. Yeah, it sucks.

After a trip to the ER I settled back at home for a week of boredom and…homework. I’m starting to miss the days when assignments weren’t due for another week.

So… I wanted to pop my head in here and let you know that yes, I’m still alive, and I’ve been just a little preoccupied kickin this piggy to the curb.

And, if anyone is doing a blog or news article about fighting swine flu, its symptoms, or anything related, I’m totally open to helping you out. Subscribe and email me!

No Such Thing As Luck…

I personally do not believe in luck. Things always happen for a reason.

…However, saying that I’m “blessed” to be a frequent giveaway winner feels very strange! haha. So I don’t really have a good word to explain how many of my dorm’s things were won through blogs and corporate marketing campaigns.

Honestly, I’ve always had a lot of success winning things… through my entire life. (yeah, I know. 75% of my readers officially hate me now haha) It’s a hobby of mine to enter contests. I do it on my break, when I’m at home and have free time, or when I’m just wasting time!

I realize I haven’t posted in a while… I was in Florida, and then I was at FROSH camp for the University of Memphis! GO TIGERS! I am starting my freshman year of college on August 31st, and I’m so excited! So please forgive me for not keeping this blog up to date.

I truly want this blog to feature important things that college students can benefit from. i.e. How to eat for next to nothing, the best FREE dates in Memphis, and what NOT to forget when you’re heading off to your dorm. Interested? Please subscribe and you’ll receive an email everytime I update this blog. And if you have any ideas for posts, comment below! Thanks in advance =)

Since I’ve been behind, I want to shout-out to the blogs that have awarded me prizes lately. Be sure to visit their and the corporate sponsors’ websites! I’ll be featuring several of these products in reviews in the near future.

Homeschool Boutique

  • T-shirt (I LOVE this company! They offer unique homeschool-themed shirts and are inexpensive!)

Fashionable Gal

Alternative Consumer

Fitnezz.com

Evie S.

  • Boutique fabric tin

GrubGrade

Whole Foods Market

  • Gift card (Facebook giveaway!)

Peek a Baby

  • Flipper toothbrush holder (this thing looks like a COW and it’s awesome! hahaha)

Ok. I’m done. I have a small feeling the other 25% of you now hate me! haha. I’m waiting on a couple more prizes to be mailed to me as well. Like I said, I’m going to review several of these products for you. Don’t forget to subscribe to receive email updates!

Businesses, I’d like to feature some of my own giveaways featuring your products! Please contact me! =)

I’m still alive, don’t worry.

I just got back from a wonderful trip to Panama City Beach! It was my first time to Florida and I definitely had a good time.

I got home to find out I had won several giveaways, and as soon as I receive them I will present reviews for you 🙂 I can’t wait to build up my readership enough to offer my own contests! Help me present ways for you to win! Follow me on Twitter and subcribe to receive the latest updates!

Short post, I know… but I wanted to update you instead of leaving you in silence!

Hello… again

So, it didn’t take long for me to realize that keeping a blog updated is hard work! I mean, I guess I could just post the minimum… random links, the story of my life- but if you, my readers, are going to keep coming back, I obviously need to post updates that captivate, inform, or entertain you!

Here’s just a few of my updates to this blog:

1. Email updates! Subscribe to receive my new blog posts directly in yoour inbox. This is the best way to stay informed about upcoming events and giveaways!

2. Photo of the week! You may not know this, but I have a portrait photography business, Picturesque Memphis. At least once a week I’ll post an interesting photo from one of my sessions or just a random one from around the city.

3. Giveaways! I’m working with several boutiques and businesses to provide readers with unique ways to win free prizes! Once again, the best way to hear about these (before deadlines pass) is by subscribing.

There’s many more ideas that I have, including reviews of local and online businesses, bands, boutiques, and more. If you would like to be featured on College Chick, please contact me at clarissa (at) digitaldeacons (dot) com. =)
