Giveaway Fun

I'm a big fan of blog giveaways. I've hosted a few on some of my other blogs, and I LOVE to enter them. I've decided that the easiest way to share all the giveaways I find is to post up a link list of all the ones I enter. So in the link up below are the ones I've entered today (may have missed some). Feel free to add your own!

I'll be doing a weekly giveaway link up, but haven't settled on a day yet. Let me know in the comments if there is a day of the week that you think is better for a link up, or that there is a lack of link up opportunities.

Until next time,
Totally Random D

I'm a winner again!

Yesterday I posted my tasty winnings, and today I'm posting another winning! This time it is a lovely bracelet.

Thanks to the lovely creator at The Ivy Cottage Creations, I am not the sparkly owner of a silver floral bangle bracelet. It's very cute, and very me. Which probably explains why I'm wearing it right now.

Thank you for my new bracelet!

I've won 2 other prizes that I'm waiting on the arrival of. I'm thinking it's about time to share the wealth. I'm going to start a weekly link up, I'm thinking for Saturdays, to link up all the giveaways I find, and any that anyone wants to add. I'm also posting them to one of my Pinterest boards (ID TotallyRandomD if you want to find me before I get the blog all updated). In the not too distant future, I'll start doing giveaways again too.

Good luck all you future winners!

I'm a winner!

What have I won?

I won a Dove Olive Oil Co. pack of goodies thanks to a giveaway on the Save More Spend Less blog. Well in my mail today, I  received a big box from Dove Olive Oil Co. I am always excited to win, and even more excited when it arrives! Happily, I tore into my box of goodies. Inside, carefully bubble wrapped I found:

200ml bottle of Orange-Vanilla White Balsalmic
200ml bottle of Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
200ml bottle of 18 yr Traditional Balsalmic
200ml bottle of Cilantro Roasted Onion Olive Oil
200ml bottle of Blueberry Balsalmic
375ml bottle of Arbequina Olive Oil
2 oz of Tuscan Blend spices
2 oz of Vanilla Sea Salt
And 2 bags of pasta

Now, I haven't tried them all yet, but I did pop open the blueberry balsalmic. I'm not usually a fan of blueberries, so I was curious. After opening up the foil seal thing, I twisted out the cork topper (which was fun) and smelled. There was a distinct, but not overpowering scent of blueberries, and it tasted really good.

I also cracked into one of the super cute spice tins, because the vanilla salt was too much of 2 curiosity to resist. It smells like it should be on a desert! I'm thinking it might be the perfect topper to some salted caramel candies, or something like that.

All in all, I'm a very happy winner and looking forward to trying out the pastas, oils, balsalmics and spices! Many thanks to Sara over at Dove Olive Oil Co., and to Heidi at Save More Spend Less.
