You call me out upon the waters / The great unknown where feet may fail / And there I find You in the mystery / In oceans deep / My faith will stand. / And I will call upon Your name / And keep my eyes above the waves / When oceans rise / My soul will rest in Your embrace / For I am Yours and You are mine.

giveaway / the easiest $1000 giveaway, ever
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 // 15 comments
Hey Friends! I've teamed up with Demi Lovato, Tampax and Always for their Be Radiant in Neon Lights Sweepstakes. Pretty much, the easiest giveaway ever! One lucky winner (and a friend) will win two premium concert tickets, a meet and greet with Demi, $1,000 in spending money and a year supply of Tampax Radiant! And all you have to do is enter your name here before March 5th, 2014! Oh, but that's not all. To increase your chances of winning, they're allowing you to enter your name daily! Say what? So why did Demi choose to have Tampax + Always sponsor her tour?! Because The Radiant Collection puts a new twist on your usual produit féminin. The collection now has designer packaging (for us trendy girlie-girls) and cool, unique features that'll make that time of the month a lot more discreet! Needless to say, this collection is a definite 2014 must-have as it "makes me wanna act like a girl, paint my nails and wear high heels"! To stay up to date on the contest, the wins, the fashion, and the exclusives - be sure to follow the hashtag #BeRadiant on Twitter! I can't wait to attend the concert as I'll be corresponding backstage! Stay tuned, more to come!

Oh, and I have no idea what I'm going to wear to the concert but being that Demi is a solid 5'3 I'll be looking to her (and these guys) to source my style inspiration! I love that Demi is an advocate for curvy + happy girls around the world! I admire her testimony about her struggles with eating disorders such as bulimia and although I sometimes hide my curves (or suck them in with Spanx) I want to embrace them to the fullest whenever I do step out for a night in the city. I'm thinking bold colors, print, and texture for sure. But I'll take all of the advice I can get! Drop me a line in the comments, I'm aiming to #BeRadiant! PS / I too am 5'3. ;)
