Great Mail Lately (+ Quest Bar Giveaway!)

      58 Comments on Great Mail Lately (+ Quest Bar Giveaway!)


I have to admit, I’ve been getting some pretty awesome mail lately! Granted, I’ve purchased a few things for myself…ahem-retailtherapy-ahem, but I’ve also had a lot of mail sent my way lately. Take a look at this!

photo1 – Blue Diamond was so sweet and sent me some almonds as a part of their summer campaign. Look for a fun recipe next week! 🙂

2 – My amazing Blend, Lindsay, was holding a giveaway with Julian Bakery and I won! I was super excited to try their Paleo bread. It’s definitely not your normal bread but it’s pretty good with a smear of almond butter. 😉

3 – Swanson Vitamins was going to do a blogger challenge but ultimately decided not to do this one. Since I had submitted myself for it, they sent me a small credit as a thank you for my interest. Obviously I had to go shopping right away and got a few favorites – 2 new kinds of Yogi tea, Gogi berries, and lavender essential oils.

4 – One of my suite mates at Blend works for Skoop and sent me home with a 5 day challenge. I LOVED the stuff so she offered to send me a full bag to review…uh, yes please! Look for that review (and a possible giveaway!) in a couple weeks. 🙂

5 – Quest Bar was a great sponsor at Blend. They prepared one of our breakfasts one morning and in general were super fun and nice people to have around all weekend. To make it even better, they gave everyone a box at breakfast (mine disappeared) but also said they were sending everyone a box of the Cookies & Cream flavor. (below)

2photoNow, I’ll be honest…as nice and generous as they are, I can’t actually eat Quest Bars due to allergy restrictions SOOOO instead of letting this box go to waste and knowing how much everyone else LOOOOOVES them, I figured it’s a perfect opportunity for me to host a little giveaway for some of my favorite people – YOU!


What do you say? Do you want a box of Cookies & Cream Quest Bars?

    I love the cookies n cream quest bars! I really like getting mail too but since I’m subletting from a friend for the month no mail has been mine here

    My favorite mail lately was a card asking me if I’d be the bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding! She lives in Italy, so the card had to suffice 🙂

      YAY!! That’s so fun! I got all excited when I got a little box from my friend asking if I’d be her bridesmaid. It’s so fun, right?!

    ahhh I have a terrible addiction to quest bars! Part of me wishes I were allergic. They are so expensive and now my husband LOVES the cookies n cream ones, so those are disappearing everyday lol 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway girl!

      hahaha! Well, I’m really intrigued to know if they are as good as everyone says but I’ll assume it’s best I don’t find out! haha!

    OOOohhh! I LOVE Quest Bars! Seriously! They are my #1 Favorite (and I’m not just saying that for the “sake” of this Giveaway! It’s totally true).

    To answer your Giveaway question, though, favorite “mail” that I’ve received lately? Well, I haven’t gotten anything super cool YET, but arriving tomorrow in the mail is a book I ordered the book ” The New Rules of Marathon and Half-Marathon Nutrition: A Cutting-Edge Plan to Fuel Your Body Beyond “the Wall” which will arrive on Friday!
    I hope I win the Giveaway! I’ll be in Quest Bar Heaven!

    I still haven’t tried my Skoop, but I really need to! I have been hearing good things! Actually, I put all my swag in my suitcase after I unpacked my clothes and haven’t opened it since. I really need to get that stuff unpacked!

    1. Katie Post author

      LOL!!! I’ve been LOVING the Skoop! I enjoy having greens like that in my smoothies but it really is super yummy!

    1. Katie Post author

      haha! I assure you my mail isn’t ALWAYS this fun but this was a particularly fun week so of course I had to share! 😉

    Sweet, sweet haul of goodies on your doorstep. I’ve never had Quest bars so I think you’re twice as sweet for giving away what you can’t eat. Sorry you’re not able to, though. Allergies have to be a major bummer.

    1. Katie Post author

      Sometimes it’s a bummer but honestly, most of the time I don’t really even care. You get used to it and don’t really crave the foods you can’t eat anymore.

    the bread is almost doughy, yes? So i freeze half and keep the other in fridge. Then i toast in oven. That way it doesn’t fall apart. Just a thought! And yay quest! love it!

    1. Katie Post author

      That’s a good idea! I put one in the freezer and the other in fridge. I bet toasting in the oven would work out better because I usually break the bread trying to get it out of the toaster…lol

    1. Katie Post author

      I haven’t tried any of their stuff before. The bread is pretty good but it definitely breaks when I try to take it out the toaster. Lindsay suggested toasting in the oven which sounds like a better idea. 😉

    Yay for packages in the mail! I love how my apartment manager pretty much knows if I am in the office, I have packages.

    But boo for food allergies. I think I’m passing my box onto Dave haha the joy of having a dude who can eat anything. We just have to see if Quest bars taste “too healthy” for him!
