Well this was NOT the intro I was expecting to write for this post.
As you know, I am in my senior year of college and Tuesday started my last semester. I went into the day with high hopes and excitement and ended exhausted and frustrated.
There were some mistakes made on my transcript regarding credits, so it turns out the course load this semester is going to be a lot more intense than I was expecting. Without going into to many details, I am not going to be able to dedicate as much time to blog and social media as usual. This saddens and disheartens me as I love connecting with you all and my blog is my true passion!
I will probably have to cut back on my weekly posts and not do as much commenting/socializing with you all. I hope you will understand and I will continue to do my best to bring you great content here!
But as always, school comes first and graduating in May is my top priority. So bear with me over these next few weeks and months as I figure things out and push my way through to the end.
In happier news, I have a really great giveaway for you all today!
You guys know my love of Nakd bars (I eat them basically everyday!) and how excited I was when they finally were available for order in the US last year. Well, slowly but surely, they’ve been bringing more and more of their products over. Late last year, NIBBLES crossed the pond and now their special seasonal Nakd bar flavor, Christmas Pud, has made its way over too!
The taste? Think eggnog mixed with a bit of gingerbread and maybe even a slight hint of cocoa. In other words, DELICIOUS. And eating one totally brings back all the happiness and comfort of the holiday season.
Three of you have a chance to win a WHOLE BOX for yourself! There are two ways to enter.
You can use the widget below AND you can head over to my Instagram to enter there. More ways to enter, more ways to win! 🙂
Christmas Pud Nakd Bar Giveaway
Good luck to everyone who enters! This flavor is really special and has a limited run in production, so you don’t want to miss out.
