Let’s Celebrate: ADSG 5th Birthday!

While getting ready to celebrate this milestone year for ADSG,  I thought back to the start of my blog + online presence as breezygfreezy. Dragging myself to my weekly mini-course seminar — “The Rhetoric of Blogging”– at the University of Michigan in frigid Monday night temperatures, I had no clue what this would become.

I also remember the first time a company contacted me about my then-assignment, now-blog, asking if they could send me some goodies in the mail. Me? You want me to write what I think?

Fast-forward and this week marks my 5th anniversary of this beautiful mess. With many brand partners, multiple conferences attended, lots of delicious {and yucky!} products tested along the way, and a whole lot of learning from those who have been doing this even longer than I have, I’m proud to celebrate with all the people who have made ADSG and breezygfreezy what it is today.

Okay, enough emotional time.

How about some ways to celebrate with me?!

5th Birthday Celebration!

Take a peek at the schedule below; we’ll be partying all week long!

Monday {that’s today!}: My friends Kevin and Kara over at Sun Krunch {my go-to breakfast and only granola I eat} are sponsoring a giveaway of their paleo, grain-free, low sugar, gluten free deliciousness! Check it out on my Instagram. {running until Mon. 2/5}

 

Tuesday: Looking for something fun to add to your dinner routine? Look no further than the bright box of Banza. This chickpea-based brand from Detroit {proud to support as a former SE Michigan dweller!} was started by a couple of young guys and now fill shelves and pantries all over the country with their near-replica of regular pasta {so I’m told}, just plant-based, high-protein, and low-carb! Roll into this giveaway of their new-ish wheels over on my Instagram {3 winners!}. {running until Tues. 2/6}.

 

Wednesday: After I determined eggs were making me extremely ill, finding a brand of gluten free breads that fit the egg-free bill was tough. Enter: BFree. I’m reviewing their whole line on the blog today with chances to win 1 of every product {2 winners!} Read the whole review and enter to win here. {running until Wed. 2/7}

 

Thursday: Another favorite in my routine of grain free options is Simple Mills with their almond flour crackers {yep pretty sure they meant the whole box was one serving!} and fun almond-based cookies. I know this line gets a bit pricy, so I’ve got a giveaway coming ‘atcha! Check out my snack idea and enter to win on my Instagram. {running until Thurs. 2/8}

 

Friday: As most of you know, I’m a huge zoodles fan. But, in this spiralizing craze, did you know there are fruits and veggies from A to Z that you can spiralize? I’ve been a proud owner and user of Ali Maffuci’s original spiralizer design, The Inspiralizer, for a long time. I whipped up a quick, tasty lunch from one of her dozens of free online recipes {okay, I also was a sucker and bought her cookbook too!}– it’s over on my Instagram today. Ali was sweet enough to sponsor a giveaway of her new Inspiralizer Lite! I bought one of them and it has just as much power and takes up a portion of the space {great for small kitchens!}– be sure to enter! {running until Fri. 2/9}

 

Saturday: Out and about? Me, too. When I’m running around getting hangry and need a boost, I always reach for a MadeGood Foods granola bar or bag of bites! Made with purity protocol oats, in a nut free facility, with added vegetables snuck in, and 20% of your daily vitamin D, how could you go wrong? Enter to win some for your purse, backpack, or gym bag over on Instagram {3 winners!}. {running until Sat. 2/10}

 

Sunday: Ladies, this one is for you as you get ready to conquer your week ahead! My beautiful virtual “family” over at Red Apple Lipstick has completed every outfit– casual or fancy– I’ve worn in the last several years and they wanted in on the party! Check out my full review of their lipsticks, eyeshadows, bronzer, and more with a chance to win a lip care set for yourself {2 winners!} {running until Sun. 2/11}
