A giveaway and something that I just wanted to point out...

I just have to point out that it's already the last day of July - wow, how did THAT happen???

Since I'm in college, summer starts early/mid-May for me (May 9, this year) and so getting to the end of the July means the bulk of summer has passed. Tomorrow is August!

I've had a fun summer and am excited for all that fall will bring. I can't believe I go home for my actual summer break in two weeks - only two more weeks of NYC left. Anyway, this is just a reminder to make sure you're doing what you want with your summer - it will be fall before you know it! Do what you like! 


But don't go full-fledged Shopaholic, even if shopping is what you like. I know it's good for the economy and I know those shoes are ca-uuuute, but fall WILL arrive and you WILL need to buy textbooks. 

Anyway, it's been a while since I've done a giveaway. So I'd say it's time for another one, wouldn't you? YAY, giveaway time!

I don't know about y'all, but virgin coconut oil has been The Cool Kid in the blogosphere and there's so much you can do with it - think granola, buttery vegan baked goods (sans the butter, because coconut oil does pretty much the same thing for the texture and taste!), roasted kabocha, homemade chocolate...the list goes on and on and on, and you know I'll be exploring the possibilities here soon :)

This time, I'm doing things a bit differently - my giveaway is starting before my review comes out so that my review comes out when my giveaway is announced. That way, there isn't that eons-long time between when you read my review and start craving the coconut oil when it's on its way to your house!

This is my first giveaway using Rafflecopter, so that's pretty exciting! For me at least :P

Anyway, here's what the giveaway is for (the company put together a little intro to their product for us):


Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz.

Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?


Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

And here's how to enter the giveaway!


Disclaimer: TropicalTraditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I am under no obligation to review it if I so chose.  Though I choose to review it, I am not under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product. I just like doing giveaways! And, as always, I'll tell you the truth about the product in my review.


The winner will be announced here on August 20!

HAPPLY LAST DAY OF JULY, Y'ALL!
