Win a Beach Bag Full of Goodies Including an iPod from Don't Fret the Sweat!



It's HOT here in Florida! When we first moved into our house, I set the thermostat at 72 which is what I kept my house at in Illinois during the summer. When I told my friend who lives here that my air was set to 72, her jaw hit the floor, and I started to realize that I'd probably need to make some adjustments if I didn't want a $500 electric bill. I've been turning the temperature up a degree every day. I'm up to 76 so far and honestly, when I come in from outside, it feels a little too cold sometimes. I guess anything less than the outdoor temp (approximately 400 degrees) is cool.

I'm pretty sure I'm single-handedly keeping Unilever in business with all the deodorant I'm using every day! I'm almost to the point of rubbing a stick of Degree on my head to keep the sweat from pouring down into my eyes. I know, I'm quite the babe with my hair matted to my face.

But I've figured out the secret to living in Florida during the summer! When you're not in the air conditioning, you need to spend all day at the pool or beach! What a great way for anyone to spend their free time during the summer! And I've got an awesome giveaway to help you do just that!

Here’s what you’ll find in the “Don’t Fret the Sweat” beach bag (valued at $137):

Exclusive Don’t Fret the Sweat beach bag
2GB iPod Shuffle
$25 iTunes gift card
Beach towel
Beach ball
Sports water bottle
Sunscreen
Vaseline Daily Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Body Gel
Unilever deodorant sticks

Ways to enter:

1. Leave me a comment here (BE SURE TO INCLUDE CONTACT INFORMATION) for a chance to win.

2. Like the Don't Fret the Sweat Facebook page here. Then leave me another comment letting me know that you liked the page for another chance to win.

3. Tweet about the giveaway and leave me another comment here letting me know that you tweeted about it for another chance to win.

I'll choose a random winner on Monday, July 18. Good luck!

I am working with Unilever to help parents raise healthy tweens through the Don't Fret the Sweat page and have been compensated for my time.

There is no way I could live in the FL heat!! I keep my air on 72 but like you I'm trying to adjust it up to save on power. My husband was laid off 2 weeks ago :/ I'm glad to see that you are moved in and doing ok! Love keeping up with you on your blog and facebook :) Would love to win the prize!

awesome contest, Dawn. I think staying in the pool sounds pretty good...it is still cool where we are on the other cost. When I lived in a tropical climate years ago I found eventually your blood does thin out and you don't feel the heat as much so just hang in there!

I already liked that page a while back, but I am leaving a
Comment in the hopes of winning anyway! I am in Indiana and it was VERY hot here today, mostly due to the heat index. We went to a boy scout camping event but opted to come home to sleep. One of the scout moms posted in her Facebook status that they are all smothering but don't want to break ccamp in the dark. I'm thinking drive home (fifteen minutes away) sleep and then come back in the morning to break camp!
