Perfect Summer Legs and The Most Perfect Giveaway Ever

Written by Bryce

I can’t even count how many times I’ve thought the following two things:

  1. Happiness is a cocktail of smiling and having perfect legs. Everything else is just a detail.
  2. Wouldn’t it be great if money magically fell out of the sky and into my world?

Since money doesn’t typically go around falling out of the sky, I’ve had a bigger focus in my life on perfecting my leg situation. You know, occasional runs, squats, a million wild yoga classes and the like– but the truth is, smooth and hairless legs are really where the party’s at. I mean, if your legs are smooth and glistening in the sun, who really notices if you’ve done your 250 lunges this week? No one, that’s who. I love Skintimate Shave Gel because a little goes a long way– it lathers like a champ, smells divine, and lets my razor glide through shaving like the speed boat I SHOULD be on right now. All I’m saying is, give the Flirty Mango scent a try and see if you’re not instantly transported to a scene full of sarongs and beach cocktails. At about $3 for each bottle, you’ll get a closer, smoother shave and unbeatable razor protection.

Even better, Skintimate must’ve heard all the silent wishes I’ve made on fallen eyelashes for money to fall out of the sky, because they just set up probably the most fabulous contest ever (unless someone starts a “sit in your bed and watch Netflix contest” because I would totally win that). The new Make It Happen contest is a chance to nab $5,000 to make your dreams come true, literally. As in, if you win, you can get $5,000 to support your dream of becoming a marathon runner, or jewelry designer, or even to help fuel your education dreams, plus a year supply of Skintimate.

Categories for submissions include:

-Work (school/career)

-Personal (hobbies, travel, new skill, healthy living, spiritual, family, etc.)


Personally, I’m torn what I would use my winnings for. Would it be good karma, and sending it off to my favorite children’s charity? Or maybe to take some intense Photoshop and programming classes so I can do more of this web work on my own? Or maybe just a fun week away for the hubby and my kids to a wide open beach? Literally, it’s so hard to pick, but you can enter here.

Just upload a photo or short video that represents your dreams and goals to, and encourage your friends to share, tweet, and social media the heck out of your post so you hopefully win. The contest runs from August 6, 2014 to September 9, 2014, and six winners will be announced on the Tumblr page the week of September 22 — so get crackin’!
