It's Giveaway Time!


One of the questions I get asked a lot is, "How can you afford all these races?"  Well honestly we can't.  So earlier in the Spring I started looking for ways I could earn extra money to pay for races and other running odds and ends.  I had a friend that introduced me to eyelash extensions.  I went to a training class, practiced for many hours, tested and certified.  So now I am a certified eyelash extension professional.  You can take a look at my website to get all the details of how it works.  It's been really great and I've been working on building my clientele list.  Here's a few endorsements I've received so far...


"Dawn is the best out there.  With my beautiful eyelash extensions you'd never know I'd been up all night with my twins.  Oh and my nanny has them too cause she's really the one up at night..."


"With my eyelash extensions it's so much easier to wave them bye-bye to that idiot Tony and say hello to all the other hot dudes out there that think I'm super hot."


"Because of Dawn and my amazing eyelash extensions I sold 180,000 albums this week."

Ok, so maybe I don't live in LA and I don't have celebrity clients - but I have done dozens and dozens of lash sets and they turn out as good as all these.  They're super fun and perfect for all those holiday parties and family pictures this winter season.  My favorite thing about them is that I can just get up and go to the gym, the grocery store, carpool or wherever and I look like I'm ready for the day without a lick of make-up.  Huge time saver and they look better than mascara!  So the good news...

I'm giving away a free of set eyelash extensions! 

A full set usually costs $100!  The bad news...you have to live near me to get them put on.  Or if you're doing a race or live in an area I'm doing an upcoming race at, I can bring my supplies and apply them there!

Here's the rules...Leave a comment for each entry.

  2. I think I'm good with my lashes, but your celebrity quotes made me laugh. Gaga's eyes look like they exploded. Good luck with the giveaway, your business, and your remaining races in your quest. I'll be following closely.

  5. Haha! You crack me up--love that last photo and comment.

    I would sign up for this contest, but my eyelashes are already naturally long. They touch my eyebrows and rub against glasses (so I rarely wear sunglasses) when I put on mascara. I am grateful for them. In my opinion, they are my one and only beauty. ;-)
