let's start the week off right...
with a giveaway!!!

Did someone say giveaway?! Heck yeah!!
What a great way to start off the week!!
And I know I just did a post, bashing their new logo, but it's all good... I still love my Starbucks!!

I wanted to do a little something special for my lovely readers! I appreciate all of you -- for your support, encouragement and inspiration. This blog is really turning into a passion of mine and I am so thankful to all of you!

Here's what you need to do:

:: Leave a comment letting me know you are a follower, and also tell me what's your favorite thing to get at Starbucks! I'll take a passion tea lemonade, or maybe a mocha frappuccino... Heck, I'll take anything, I'm addicted! :-)

How about a few extra chances...

:: Leave another comment with a tip, or advice for other "newbie" bloggers like myself... something helpful or constructive.

:: Blog about this giveaway in a post of yours, and leave another comment.

Don't forget to leave your e-mail (if you don't list one on your blog/profile). I have to be able to get in touch with you! Otherwise, I'll have to choose someone else...

2 lucky winners will be picked at random, and each wins a $10 Starbucks gift card!!!

Giveaway ends: Thursday, January 20th at 10PM EST.
Winners will be announced on Friday, January 21st, so make sure to check back!!
** Starbucks did not sponsor this giveaway. I wanted to something small to thank all my loyal blogging friends! :-)

  7. ooh and for blog advice:

    always "show email" in blogger on your profile so readers can talk to you directly and also so you can reply to comments! Jess you're ahead of the game and already do this but so many bloggers do not! eep! so important!

    also - making a button for your blog is a great idea =) it helps spread the word! <3


  8. Yes, I'm a follower! I love the hot chocolate at Starbucks. So yummy!

  9. Big fan of Java Chip Fraps at Starbucks!! Loving the blog :)

  10. i'm a follower! & the drink i order everytime is a Skinny Vanilla Latte...mmmm!


  11. I love tall chai tea lattes... So good!

    blog advice: since I dont have one... I'm not really sure. But reading up... just like any social network site.. its important to connect with everyone and make relationships... Just like Jennifer said, your already ahead of the game.. and on the right path. your posts are interesting and are targeted to those who love design :-) Keep up the great work jess <3

  12. I am now a follower :) I think my fav is a chia tea frap, grande! My tip to you would to keep blogging daily, use your talents to their best potential, and leave lovely comments to those you feel have done the same. Keep up the beautiful work, xoxo!

  13. mmmm, skinny vanilla latte gets me every time. :) with cinnamon!

    blog advice.....let your personality shine! i'm new at this too, so i need some wisdom myself :) katypbrooks@gmail.com

    thanks for reading!!!!!

  14. I love Starbucks so I would love to be entered! I love the shaken black tea and of course iced coffee and chai teas are great too! xo

  15. Yummy! My favorite in winter is a Zebra Hot Chocolate (: (I live in Seattle and don't like coffee...I know, I'm lame.)
    Summer: Passion Tea Sweetened, please!

    You're so sweet to do this!

  16. Let's see...some advice: I'd say to make sure your email is shown so when you comment, the person's blog you comment on can e-mail you back in reply (: I love doing that. Stay YOU, be genuine (like you are!) and post often about things you love and things that inspire you. I always love finding out more about you personally, so I like to add some personal posts in, too!

  17. Um. Totally addicted to Starbucks, so I was pretty pumped to see the word "giveaway" in the same sentence! Following your blog, and would love to use that gift card on a White Chocolate Mocha... sooo bad.. but sooo good!

  18. Blog advice... hmmm, I think I need blog advice instead of give it out.. but I agree with Michaela, I find myself drawn to blogs that include some personal posts, so I feel like I know the person. Also, genuine commenting goes a long way... good luck!
