You guys…IT’S MY FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR!!!!!
Ohhhhhhhh if you have been around here at least 365 days then you know, I LOVE SEPTEMBER 1ST!
This date and all the days moving forward for the remainder of the calendar year just make me H-A-P-P-Y.
Life can be super hard, so I try my best to stop and celebrate as many little things as I can including…this date on the calendar.
Year in and year out, I try to make this day SUPER HUGE because…why not?
But this year? This year, I am thinking waaaaaay outside of the box and hopefully, you’ll find it as entertaining, joy-filled and fun as me. If we fall girls can’t laugh at ourselves this time of year, then we’re missing out 😉 .
Here’s what we’re doing…this year, we’re combining my favorite accessory with my favorite day of the year for…SHAY’S FAVORITE DAY GUCCI GIVEAWAY…
I’m going to give away one Gucci bag to one lucky winner. The person who wins this Favorite Day Giveaway can pick between either receiving a GG MARMONT SMALL MATELASSE SHOULDER BAG or a OPHIDIA GG MEDIUM TOTE from me! Of course, exclusions do apply. All winners must be located here in the United States as I will be shipping to a US address. If one of these two bags just happens to be sold out when the winner is announced, another Gucci bag of equal or lesser value will be awarded instead. The winner will be announced here on my blog Friday, September 9th.
But how do you enter to win?
Awwwwwwww…well…I’m making it a FALL MEME COMPETITION. That’s right. You know how social media is filled with funny, clever and original memes about women/families/people who love this season? Well, take your own photo of you and/or your family/your pet/your life, add a funny caption, post it on Instagram in either your Stories or your feed (or both!), tag @mixandmatchmama and use the hashtag #memeintofallwithMMM . My team members here at my travel agency and I will go through all of tagged memes that you ladies post and select our personal two faves. Once we narrow it down to the top two, I will post the top two memes in my Stories on Thursday, September 8th with a poll and let everyone who wants to vote head to my Stories and vote between the two. The winner will be decided by the result on that poll and that lucky person will get a Gucci bag.
If this sounds like too much trouble and only one person wants to do it, then they get the bag…or if 500 of you fall girls want to be fun and creative and show your fall spirit, then I will share as many as I can on my social media channels, so even if you don’t win, you’ll at least get your creative pics out there for other people to see.
Now, do you need an example of what I’m talking about when I say make a fall meme? Head over to my Instagram account this morning to see what I’m talking about 😉
One more time:
1: Take a picture of yourself and/or your family/your pet/your life.
2: Add a funny fall caption.
3: Post this photo on either your Stories or in your Instagram feed and tag @mixandmatchmama and hashtag #memeintofallwithMMM
4: My team and I will look through all of the tagged photos and select the ones that we love the most (sharing as many of them as we can along the way!)
5: Our favorite two memes will be privately contacted on Wednesday, September 7th via DMs on Instagram. If we DM you, we’ll verify that you own this photo, are in this photo (or that your kids/etc are!) and that you are one of our two finalist.
6: I will post both memes on @mixandmatchmama Stories on Thursday, September 8th with a poll for people to vote between meme #1 and meme #2. Once the poll closes (24 hours later), the meme with the most votes wins the bag
7: I will ship the bag directly from Gucci’s website to the winner’s US postal address
The best part about this giveaway?
Lots of funny memes to make our days brighter as we step into fall.
