A terrible vlog + a giveaway

I’m totally embarrassed to share this video.  Like, EMBARRASSED.  But, we will just call it a humbling experience and move on.  ;)  A few notes as you watch.

1.  I’m so country sounding that it’s ridiculous.
2.  Half of my face is cut off.  I’m aware of this, and didn’t choose to reshoot this video.  Sorry!
3.  I’m the WORST at explaining products.  Like, the very worst.  Please don’t judge.

Okay, now I’ll just bite the bullet and let you see... after you watch, scroll down and find out how you can win some goodies!


I hope we can still be friends....

Moving on.

Let’s get to the good stuff.  WHAT YOU CAN WIN!  A sweet friend of mine who offered me these great products wants to giveaway a $25 credit to Mary Kay!  Kristy is a friend of mine from church and I love what she’s doing with her Mary Kay earnings this month.  As some of you know, a friend in our community group was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer a few months ago.  It has been so incredible to watch and Danielle and her family face this trial and it has encouraged me and challenged me constantly.  Watching people walk through dark, painful trials with trust in the Lord and JOY just gives me chills.  We have a great God.  

Anyway, Kristy is donating every dollar she makes to Danielle and her fight against cancer.  We would love if you would support our sweet friend!  Not only will participating in part of this giveaway get you awesome products, but you’ll be encouraging Danielle as she faces cancer.  A win-win!  Check out the giveaway below and enter away!  Grab the photo, go through all the entries, and GOOD LUCK!  I will announce the winner sometime on Friday 7/25.

Love Mary Kay, but haven't been using it for roughly the past 2 years so I would love to try some of these new products and having a $25 giftcard allows me to buy more! :)

Loved the vlog! You are too cute :)

Jordan Glassford said...

Isn't it funny how you don't recognize your accent until you're on film or you hear yourself in a voicemail. I love this video and your sweet heart for sharing it. Seriously so cute!

blaine said...

I think you're in the same community group as my husband's best friend and his wife.. :) They recently told us about this young lady, too. What a coincidence! I love that your friend is helping through her Mary Kay business. Loved the video!

You're accent is the best, I love it! Mary Kay has some of the best products and if I won I would want to try that CC cream. I think it's great that this is going to help someone in need. :]

Hannah said...

Oh, my goodness! I love your little video! Hearing you talk makes me like you all the more! Your accent is so cute and I just love it. ...I wish my natural accent was like that :) Seriously, though. You are adorable! Don't be embarrassed. Thanks for sharing about those two products, I've never really used Mary Kay before, but have always heard good things about them!

Nicole Calvert Boettcher said...

My mom had this perfect bright pinkish red lipstick that I borrowed all the time when I was a teenager. Id love to find the color and get my own.

Sydni Jackson said...

Gabrielle Wanless said...

I've never tried any Mary Kay products, so I have no clue what I'd buy!

Kaleigh said...

Would love to try the CC Cream!

Camille said...

Veronica Lee Burns said...

girl, you have nothing to fret about, your video and you are just precious! And I love your accent!

I'd definitely check out that lip balm you have, sounds awesome! I've mostly only been a benefit user but I've always heard awesome things about MK!

emily said...

LOVE Mary Kay! Isn't that lip balm the grandest thing ever?! Also, don't sweat it over the accent. I promise I've got you beat ;)

Sarah Burton said...

I have surprisingly never tried Mary Kay. I really want to try out some new lipstick shades so that's what I'd probably get!

Emily Sharp said...

Your accent is so great and so was your video! I have heard so many wonderful things about Mary Kay products and I'm sure these would be two fun ones to try!

Katie said...

Your accent is adorable! I'm from Texas (my husbands family is born & raised there) but the Air Force has us out west right now. I miss the accents!

Megan said...

I would love to try some kind of lipstick. I have never been able to find one I really love so I'd like to give Mary Kay a shot.

NikkiR55 said...

I would love to try that lip balm, and I also love their hand lotions.

Kristen {Miss Southern} said...

I would love satin lips!! What a fun giveaway!

Brooke Terpstra said...

You are so cute! You should do videos more often :) I used to sell Mary Kay, but wasn't that good either ;) Their products are awesome for my uber sensitive skin!

Ashley said...

Both of these products sound awesome and I would love to try them! I'm always looking for a natural looking foundation and having SPF is also important to me!

Brianna Palos said...

Your accent is too precious!!! I a LOVE Mary Kay and I haven't tried that CC cream! I need to!

Stasia said...

How awesome that she is doing Mary KAy for a cause! :)

Inspired Isabella & memphis bridges said...

I love everything about this video because it is you. So great to see you!!

Marisa Morales said...

I totally agree!! She has nothing to be embarrassed about because she's so gorgeous and us west coast girls wish we could have a charming accent like that! I feel like I just finally met a long time friend too :) more vlogs please Nicole!

MLM said...

Oh I have NO idea what I would get! I'm horrible with make-up. It was so fun hearing you speak! I'm so used to hearing your voice through writing!

Kittia Broadus said...

I love Mary Kay! I don't wear much make-up (if any at all) but MK is definitely a product I trust. Once in college my roommate and I went to a MK party and came out wanting to sell the product. It didn't happen then, but maybe sometime in the future!

Also, I grew up in TN but I lack the Tennessee accent because my parents are from Nebraska and Illinois. Yours is lovely and makes me miss home. :)

Kittia Broadus said...

Oh! I would totally buy mascara or undereye creme. Love that stuff.

Angélique @-Like an infinite fall said...

Really want to try this out!!!

Jaclyn beasley said...

I love their moisturizer but I would love to try out some of their lip products.

Alisha Knobloch said...

Love Mary Kay!! And this is such a beautiful and inspiring idea.

Anne Spencer Alexander said...

I've never really used Mary Kay but heard great things about their skin care products!

Jottings Of Love said...

I didn't think you were awkward at all! I love your accent, I could literally follow you around all day, just to listen to you speak! (I promise I won't do that though, because not only is it creepy, but it would be very hard, seeing as I live in England ;)

Kodie said...

Would love to win! This video is so great haha.. You're hilarious!

Bailey Robert said...

You are adorable! We're going to have to make that coffee date happen so I can see your sweet self in person ;) I LOVE Mary Kay but have not placed an order in ages. I would most likely go for the tinted lip balm or the Really Red creme lipstick.

Cyntia said...

Recently decided to try more natural products and need new cc cream!!!! perfect!

Carlee said...

I've loved bb cremes so I'd love to try the cc creme! And this vlog is so cute, love the southern accent!

Katie said...

Your accent is so SO darling! You should make more vlogs. Really!
