I Said A Boom Chicka (GIVEAWAY) Boom!

I said a boom chicka boom! I said a boom-chicka-rocka-chicka-rocka-chicka-boom!

You can take the girl out of the cheer squad, but you can't take the cheer out of the girl!

What has me so happy?

First of all, I'm head over heels in love with my new job. I'm so incredibly happy with my decision (a scary one at first) that I just can't believe it. I am so blessed and so happy, that what else is there to do but cheer?!?

That, and my very first box of Chocolate Decadence Vega Bars came in the mail today! I am OBSESSED with these babies. And you should be too!!!

Vega Whole Food Vibrancy Bars are a unique and utterly delicious blend of all-natural, raw, organic, and enzymatically-active plant-based superfoods including sprouted buckwheat, sprouted almonds, acai, Salba and hemp seeds. Unlike any other bar on the market, Vibrance bars maintain a taste of guilty pleasure while also being vegan, gluten-free, sprouted, alkaline-forming, and rich in Omega 3, antioxidants and phytonutrients!

What more could you want in a bar? Oh, and they're to die for delicious too!

Each Vibrancy bar features:

  • 17.5g of sprouts, rich in enzymes and phytonutrients
  • 10g of raw protein for easy digestion
  • 4g of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids
  • 5g of soluble and insoluble fibre (20% of RDI)

Unlike traditional cooked and processed bars, Vibrancy bars are 85% raw, alkaline and enzymatically alive, requiring less energy to digest and providing a greater net energy gain. Whether you're reaching for mouth-watering taste or a healthy snack with lasting energy, Vibrancy bars will satisfy any appetite.

So what does this mean?


That's right folks, you could win your very own BOX of Vega Bars! That's a $34 value! And guess what, the folks at Sequel Naturals are SO nice, they're even going to let you pick your own flavor! Choose from Chocolate Decadence, Wholesome Original or Green Synergy!

Although, I think you'd be crazy not to choose chocolate! Just look at that chocolatey goodness!

  1. That's awesome Erin... I'm glad you love your new job. I always believe that if you love what your doing, it doesn't feel like work at all.

    I'm following you but I don't have a blog roll. Is that okay?

    My best travel tip: Wear clothes that are wrinkle-free. That way, when you arrive at your destination, you will still look fresh and fabulous.

    Have a great day! xoxo

    I also announced that you were one of my winners! Your number was the very first one picked! :)

  16. My best travel tip is Tylenol PM. Trust me, love. I've flown back & forth from Japan so many times, the only thing that made the 152-hour flight doable was SLEEP.

    If you don't want to sleep, I highly recommend learning how to crochet and buying some plastic crochet hooks to bring on the plane. Seriously. You can make like, a whole blanket by the time you're back in L.A. :)

  17. Just found your blog, beautiful site!

  18. Fantastic giveaway! I've been dying to try Vega bars!

  19. Following you on twitter and tweeted: http://twitter.com/the_vegster/status/10934133252

  20. Best travel tips: bring snacks for the plane in case you get hungry. Keep anything you have to take out of your bag at airports in somewhere easy to access and the travel liquids in an easy access place as well. Also don't wear too many layers unless it's cold and wear shoes that are easy to get on and off.

  21. I could totally see you as a cheerleader!

  27. travel tip - carry a toothbrush, a comb and deoderant in your purse. you can travel to china and back and if your luggage is lost, you wont stink or have ratty hair :)

  28. So glad you love your new job! It sounds exciting!

  29. Travel tip? Roll up your clothes so they don't wrinkle and ALWAYS try to plan outfits ahead of time (I don't do this and end up frantically shoving non-matching clothes into suitcase!). Also, it's good to get an extra dose of antioxidants before boarding a plane and always over moisturizer skin + hair before you board!
