My Very First Vlog and a Contest To Boot...

I've decided to do my very first vlog, in an effort to inspire my awesome group of CP's to do the same!  I want to see their beautiful faces, while hearing their voices at the same time…what is this crazy concept?

So I've devised a plan of attack.  I'm doing my vlog with a contest attached!  The contest is this; I've purchased a total of 17 books at one of my favorite discount stores, and the only thing that you (yes you) have to do, is guess how much I actually spent on them.  The person that is closet to the actual amount will receive a book purchased by yours truly….pretty awesome right? Just leave your guess in the comments below!

And to add to the awesomeness, I'm also going to give you a couple of hints (because I'm cool like that)

1. What I would have spent on the books - $231.84

2. A picture of the books

3. A list of the books and authors, and because I'm SUPER nice, their retail price.

Now come on, I'm practically trying to let you win!

Ok the vlog….ugh…it's horrible and I'm such a nerd and I messed up a few names (double ugh) and youtube froze it on a horrible side view of my face (triple ugh), but here it is.

Contest ends Tuesday, June 12th, so get your guess in!!!


  1. Great idea for a contest! I am never doing a vlog, by the way. Not happening. But I'll guess $37. Which is ridiculously low and you probably even spent less. But that's my guess.

    1. Thanks Laura! Never say never, because I did and look at me.

  2. Ha're a gorgeous nerd!

    I'm guessing $34.00.

  3. You're so damn adorable. I'll do one, just let me get my life back in order a bit. Maybe next week?

    My guess is $30.

    1. Thanks Tris! Loved watching your YouTube's, made me feel like I was talking to you!

  4. Awww I love it. You're so cute and those cheekbones...STEALING. My guess is $56.32

    1. Thanks Angela! Hey you want them, they're yours…now you just have to come and claim them.

  5. Gah, you're so adorable, I can't stand it! I'll go low because I love me a great deal. I'll guess about $20.

    1. Thanks Melissa, you are all sorts of adorable yourself!

  6. I love your vlog.

    Okay, I'm going high because people are crazy low. My guess is $65

  7. You're adorable! Makes me want to put my pink streak back in!

    My guess is 42.24 because it's a cool number. If I'm anywhere close, you've GOT to tell us where you bought these books - I'm always looking for a deal.

    1. Thanks Daisy! Definitely put the pink streak back in!!! I'm all for the fun colored hair!

  8. Did you get these at Ollies? My guess is $43. Fun post.

    1. I just went there and noticed almost all the books you mentioned were there lol. I LOVE THAT PLACE.
