Hey Mari It’s Your Birthday! Let’s Celebrate With a Giveaway!

We’re gonna party like it’s your birthday….

Namaste Mari officially turns 1 years old today!!!!! and how do I want to celebrate this fabulous milestone? By giving one fabulous reader a gift!

When I started this blog, I was just looking for an outlet and when my friend west coast BFF Mansana (whom I met on the Self Magazine Forums) told me that she had a blog, I just had to jump on the bandwagon. I honestly didn’t think anyone would read this blog…I had no direction and thought it was boring…but one by one people started to read it and I went from 1 comment to 4 to 10 etc..I feel so blessed to have you ALL in my life. I want to thank you for always listening to my vents when the scale is being naughty or when one of my ex’s wants to drive me MAD or when I make a late night booty call to Papa John’s. Thank you for never judging me and always praising me. Thank you for being my blog family! I truly am blessed…

Giveaway Time!!!!!!!

As you all remember about a month ago the fabulous Corinne from Popchips sent me a huge box of goodies! I instantly fell in love with these chips and want so spread the love. Corinne has offered to host a giveaway for my birthday (THANK YOU CORINNE)

Here is a little info about Popchips from their website incase some of you have been living under a rock lol

all the flavor.
where's the fat?

We don't fry it (unhealthy). We don't bake it (undelicious). We take wholesome potatoes, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! It's a chip. The only thing added is a flavorful blend of seasonings for a snack so delicious and crispy, you won't even notice it's (we hesitate to say) healthier.

What's out? More than half the fat of fried potato chips, trans fats, and cholesterol. All gone. For good. What's popped in? Only what's natural, tons of delicious, and plenty of crunch.

never fried.
never baked.
all natural.
nothing fake or phony.
  • no trans fat

  • no saturated fat

  • no cholesterol

  • no preservatives

 

So do you want to win a fabulous box of these goodies?????
