Five Days of Giveaways: Day 1

Why FIVE DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS? This is my 95th post, so I am going to giveaway something every day until my 100th post.

DAY 1:

There are some companies out there that just think of you as a number. Or worst... don't think of you at all, just think of your money. This discourages me as a buyer and most of all, it does not create a sense of loyalty.

Back when I started to really maintain this blog, I found a company that blew me out of the water. And I have been waiting to do this review and giveaway for many months.

The company I am referring to is: Lift Your Sole. The first thing that caught my eye was the adorable logo. I love the play on words and the image of an "angel" shoe. Too cute. I liked it so much I emailed Jill and asked her if she sold any jewelry with the logo on it. I got back an adorable, personable email from her. She won me over and since that day, her logo with a link to her site have been on my blog because I was more than happy to recommend her to my followers.

I have purchased three pieces from Lift Your Sole:

1. I loved this necklace. I run on Faith every time I put my running shoes on. I love using my runs to spend time with God. And I got 26.2 stamped behind the "Running on Faith" charm. I like that only I know it is there. (Okay... so you know it too, now). I feel like during my training for the marathon - I am putting a lot of faith in God to carry me across the finish line. I just love this necklace. and the chain has extra links so I can make it shorter or longer on my neck depending on what I am wearing.

2. The second item I purchased was this "faith" ring. Sensing a theme here? I love the way it fits on my finger and it does not slide around - definitely true to size!

3. And last but not least, I got the: "I do not run to add days to my life. I run to add life to my days" cuff. LOVE IT! I think it is like a mantra for me. At this point I have lost over 50 lbs and I am not so much into losing weight now. Be there... done that (don't get me wrong, I am happy to take more pounds off, but I am really not trying - just training for the marathon). This new mantra for me is very encouraging and to top it off, the cuff is stunning. I thought it would be too small for me, but it was PERFECT!

I am so thrilled with all of her products that as I save money, I will be purchasing more. Currently, I am waiting for the logo piece to go on the market - still in the design phase.

So, I am happy that Jill has offered me to chance to give away one of her pieces. I would love to give away the "Running on Faith" necklace as pictured above, but if that just isn't your style (and you win), you will have the chance to pick a product comparable in price.

In order to be entered into this giveaway (winner announced tomorrow morning) you must:
  1. Be a follower of my blog - leave me a comment if you are a new follower. (Also, if you do not want the Running on Faith necklace, browse her site and let me know what you would like.)
  2. Sign up for Lift your Sole's newsletter HERE on her Facebook page (scroll down and it on the left). 
  3. Become a Fan of Lift your Sole on Facebook HERE

Also, do not fret, if you do not win! Jill is offering 10% off your orders for tomorrow - April 27th from 11am to 9pm with the code: Godislove10
Her prices are really low that this 10% off makes it almost a steal

REMEMBER: Mother's Day is just around the corner... Shop early for delivery in time.
Giveaway ends April 27th at 11am. Winner will be announced at 11am. I purchased these products on my own and asked to do a giveaway. I was not paid or given products for this giveaway.

I love your necklace. I probably already told you this but I use my running time as a time to pray since I believe running is a gift God has given me. I also prayed during my last marathon (last two big races actually). I picked 26 people/groups and prayer over them. Focusing on someone else is the best way to get over your own struggles...and the pain of running 26+ miles can be a lot of struggling. ;-)
I like that you have 26.2 on the back of your charm. Great idea!
