$25 Amazon/PP-WW-Summer Heat Giveaway Hop-Ends 7/20 | Miki's Hope

$25 Amazon/PP-WW-Summer Heat Giveaway Hop-Ends 7/20

Sunday, July 5, 2015



Planet Weidknecht and LeahSays’ Views are once again to be thanked for putting this hop together. Every participant has a giveaway worth at least $25.00. You can find the clickable list underneath the Rafflecopter. I encourage all of you to hop around and enter them all!!

It is HOT HOT HOT out there and I don't know about you but I have been pulling my hair back and up off my neck as much as is possible! Even my cat is out of sorts and has been batting and nipping at my legs or hands (gently) if I dare to leave my bedroom after she deems it is bedtime. She is just not in the mood for any of my shenanigans! By eight o'clock I'd better be shutting down the computer or her body becomes an immovable object in front of the screen. Look at this sweet little face--but don't let that innocent look fool you-she is all business when she wants me to do what she wants!


Enough about me and my mini monster--I'm sure you want to hear what Miki's Hope is giving away and if you are hoping that I will do what I usually do--you would be correct (hey I almost decided to give away Lilla Rose Hair Accessories but then realized it would have to be US only-not fair to everyone else) Thus one lucky winner 18 years of age or older will be chosen by Rafflecopter as the winner of their choice of either a $25 Amazon GC or $25 PayPal. Of course you will have to reply to the email I send-you know the drill! And as usual I am also going to make it a very easy entry.

Now do not forget, after you enter my giveaway to go to the other blogs and enter theirs!!

I think you should continue the way you are. The heat isn't so bad where I live. Thanks for the giveaway. ;)

Ken Ohl said...

my wife has long beautiful hair and loves beautiful barrettes love to see a giveaway for this. thankyou, ken pohl19@comcast.net

Kate F. said...

I prefer Amazon gift cards. It's been very hot lately where I live. I hope it cools down soon.

James Robert said...

Having 4 girls I like the Lilla Rose idea for a change. The heat and humidity hasn't been too awfully bad here in Michigan yet but hearing how bad in many states, don't think I'd like it

Cassie said...

I would just continue what your doing and every know and then do something different. I don't mind the heat all that much but I have a 5 week old baby which makes it impossible to do anything outside in these temps!

Carol M said...

I like to receive Amazon gift cards. I really dislike the humidity! I have trouble breathing and it makes my wavy hair turn frizzy! I'm looking forward to cooler weather.

Sherry Compton said...

I like the Amazon/PP option. I use Amazon a lot, and it's nice to have a credit there when there's something I need. Thanks.

Jackie said...

I appreciate whatever prize you choose. I think the Lilla Rose Hair Accessories would be nice.
I'm doing good so far with the weather...although I hear it's suppose to be pretty humid this upcoming week. But that's ok....it's better than the snow.
Thank you for the generous giveaway!

miki said...

being international i prefer the amazon card option ( or a book from our choic at the bookdepository it's even better)

we never had such a long period of time with temperatures above the normal ( by a lot) so i'm not doing too well in fact i'm completely out most of the time.. being stuck inside because of teh pollution level ( ozone outside) isn't helping either

dorcontest said...

I like the amazon way. I got my hair cut really short this summer. I know....wow. It is easier in all this heat and humidity.
DOREEN LAMOUREUX

Janet W. said...

I prefer the Amazon giveaways! I'm trying to stay indoors mostly during the hot summer days. If I go out, I make sure to drink plenty of water!

Melissa Storms said...

I would like to see Lila Rose as a prize. I love Amazon and PP, but winning something that is just for me is nice. I can't stand the humidity, my carpet felt wet yesterday, so gross.

Stephanie said...

Your giveaways are awesome, no matter what, but I would pick an Amazon/PayPal card if I had to choose.

Loving the sun and don't mind a bit of heat :) Happy Summer!

katieoscarlet said...

I would like to continue to see gift card giveaways. As of the last few days we have been pretty comfortable with temps in the low 80's. At least it stopped raining.

Linda said...

Continue the gift cards. It hasn't been too hot for the fourth of July--slightly humid, but good hiking weather now, in the mid-70s at 11 am.

Maria Malaveci said...

I prefer the Amazon GC's and not minding the heat as it is better than the cold!

Elizabeth said...

I like the Amazon PP giveaways the nest...thank you :) Crazy hot weather all over...maybe it's "Global Warming"!! We've been pretty warm & humid here in San Diego, but it's starting to cool down a bit. I realize we're spoiled here; just not used to the humidity!

Natalie said...

I definitely prefer the amazon gift cards. I live in MN so it has not been TOO hot or humid yet.

Judy said...

I like the GC, but for a change sometimes I enjoy different prizes. I won a Lilla Rose hair clip last year and it has held up really well.

Robyn Donnelly said...

I would probably choose the gift card because I have enough hair products for now.

Deb PelletierC said...

I like the gift cards so I can buy what I need. Thanks for asking.
The heat isn't too bad here in New England ,but that can change. :-)

Elizabeth said...

I love gift cards as prizes but I would enjoy a Lilla Rose prize now and then as well. I'm doing okay in the heat and humidity. I moved to northwest Iowa last year and the humidity is a bit better (lesser) here than where I used to live in Indiana. I'm enjoying the summer and soaking it up because I know the cooler temperatures will be back before we know it.

Nay Nay said...

I think you should continue just the way your are already going. I love gift cards. My motto is" "Gift cards are my friend" LOL
Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

Mary Czerczyk said...

I think you should continue the Amazon or PayPal. With cash you can spend it anywhere.

HS said...

I would love you to continue the way you are now (Amazon/PP). We go swimming to deal with the heat.

polly said...

I like what your are doing now. We've had some hot days in Northern California...nice today!

Kristen said...

I prefer the gift card giveaways.
I like the heat! :)

nicole said...

our ac is out so we've been melting! I love the great amazon/PP giveaways.

Anonymous said...

Keep it the way it is with Amazon gift cards please.

Jan Lee said...

I personally would rather have PP/Amazon as I have short hair so the hair accessories do nothing for me lol :)

bn100 said...

Would rather have the PP/Amazon gift card option

Kelly Mather said...

I would like an Amazon option. Thanks for having this giveaway!

tammy cordery said...

I think I would like the Amazon option too. It is not so bad here we have been getting a lot of rain showers one day every weekend so it's not so bad.

Adriana Saucedo said...

I would rather the pp/ amazon ..thanks for the giveaway.

desitheblonde said...

i now i could use it for the new house i move it does have every thing but i all way need new stuff

Alison Tolar said...

I think I prefer the Amazon/PP giveaways. As for the heat/humidity, it has been horrible down here in south Georgia.

Amanda said...

I'd love to see a Lilla Rose as a prize! I have several and love them! I'm in south Texas so heat and humidity are a year round thing for us! :-)

Lynne said...

I sure enjoy the chance to win gift cards, but what about a Lilia Rose prize every once in awhile - we are on a tight budget, so I don't often buy things for myself. Winning a Lilia Rose hair clip would be fun.

We have had rain - and then more rain - and then a bit more rain. It really hasn't been awfully hot yet, but it has sure been wet!

jeanette sheets said...

i would pick the amamzon gc

clc408 said...

I always appreciate Amazon gift cards because I can choose whatever I need at the time.

Kelly Tupick said...

I like the amazon gift card way. I'm not they type that loves all this humidity and heat. It makes me feel awful and i hate that sticky feeling. I try to stay cool the best way i can with AC and try not to overdue myself in the heat.

OlmsteadKat said...

I like GCs but receiving something I may not find on my own is great, too! And it hasn't really been that hot here.

Sandy Klocinski said...

I like the Amazon Gift Card Giveaway. Since hubby had his eye surgery he reads e-books because they are easier for him to read since he can adjust the font. He is not as electic a reader as I am and so he does not find enough to his liking in the free books. If I can win a gift card now and then it keeps me from going broke buying his books. Here in South Carolina it is hot and humid for at most of the year...but those couple of weeks when the temps were 95 to over 100 with the humidity making it feel as high as 118 were a bit much. I refuse to complain though...I complain when it's cold so I'm not complaining about the heat.

peg42 said...

I love the amazon/pp. The money/gift code can always can in handy. Thanks so much.

trisha kilpatrick said...

The Lila Rose hair accessories look really nice. If I ever won those, my daughter would probably snatch them from me. I do not like too much heat, but I enjoy humidity. It makes my hair curl.

Deborah Wellenstein said...

I am not familiar with Lila Rose hair accessories-gift cards are always good! Although it has been warm here, it is actually cooler than it has been a lot of years.

cowboyswife said...

I prefer the paypal and the amazon gift cards myself. I do not usually wear hair accessories.

Pam Gurganus said...

I would rather you continue the way you are with the Amazon/PayPal. It has been very hot and humid here in central Florida. I'm so grateful for air conditioning and the pool!

Sara said...

I would prefer you to continue with amazon or paypal cash giveaways. Maybe throw in another gift card to a popular store, like Walmart or Target. Hair accessories would be useless to me.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I like the gift card option! As for the heat, it's supposed to get warmer this week. It keeps going back and forth.

-Lauren

Stacy said...

I definitely prefer Amazon gift cards/Paypal. I don't even know what Lila Rose accessories are. As for the heat and humidity, I live in Florida, so it really doesn't phase me too much. I just know to stay in the A/C during the hottest parts of the day and drink lots of water.

Diana said...

I prefer the giftcards, I have more use for them. As for the heat, so far it's not so bad, love being able to run outside!

deana dietrich said...

Any giveaway is wonderful & TY! Hotter here than it normally is but that just means more water fun!

amy guillaume linderman said...

hair accessories would be fun! i am dripping in sweat. 90 here today

jbmthill said...

I would prefer that you continue with how you have been. I wish we had the heat and humidity in Michigan, our summer has not even been warm yet!

Shannon R said...

I prefer the amazon gift cards. The heat isn't that bad here but the mosquitos are terrible!

lynz said...

I would rather have paypal. The heat has been quite hot, but the bugs are terrible this year!

Ann Fantom said...

I prefer Amazon GCs. The heat is getting worse, but so far, it hasn't been unbearable.

abfantom at yahoo dot com

Anne said...

It's in the 60's today, so no heat and humidity for us....yet. I prefer the Amazon/PP gifts.

Fiddlin' Dandi said...

I really like the Amazon gifts cards, but I think it would be nice to enter to win a Lilla Rose Clip maybe once.

Luminous Angel said...

The hair accessories are lovely, so it would be nice to have maybe just one giveaway for them! ;)

crystalf said...

It's your blog so you giveaway whatever you want. I personally like Amazon or Paypal but that's just me. The heat is killer here in NC. We are spending as much time as possible inside. We do have to spend some very long weekends on a softball field and that make for an extremely hot and long weekend. Thank you!!

Claire Rheinheimer said...

I prefer Amazon or paypal personally, then I can get whatever I want. We haven't had any heat or humidity to speak of here in northern Indiana, in fact it's the opposite problem. It's been horrible rainy water non stop it seems, I'm so tired of it!

susan1215 said...

I like the Amazon gift cards because I can choose whatever I need at the time. It hasn't been too hot here.

Mai T. said...

It's under 15 Celsius degrees here so I don't have to suffer the heat. I'd prefer you keep the cash prize since it's more flexible and the winner can do whatever he/she wants with it.

Nikolina said...

Hello from Croatia - "only" 37 degrees here!!! :)
I'd rather you keep the Amazon/PP rewards - those are my favorite cuz we get to buy what we actually need! Thanks!

Karen Nadeau said...

I like the Amazon rewards. My husband was nice to set up a pool so I can cool off this summer. Thanks for a chance at this.

Sonal Shah said...

I am open to either the amazon/pp or the hair stuff! I am more grateful for all of your giveaways. I am trying to stay indoors in the AC during the hottest time of day, and tend to go outside when it gets a little cooler!

Juana said...

I love Amazon GCs. The heat down here is BAD. I keep my poor fans on all day long.

Veronica Lee said...

Your giveaways are awesome, no matter what, but I would pick PayPal only because most Amazon sellers do not ship to my country.
We're experiencing a heat wave right now and the heat is really getting to me.

steve weber said...

I love Amazon GCs.. it's been a rather cool summer so far here in Wisconsin - lots of rain and only weather in the 70s..

Fizzgig said...

I would rather have Amazon or PayPal as a prize. The hair accessories are gorgeous but my short bob wouldn't really allow me to wear 80% of them. :/
This heat has been killing me! I'm so thankful for our portable a/c but we're stuck to one room of our house and the machine is soooo loud. I'm normally not a fan of the summer, I'm definitely not a fan of the summer when we're breaking temperature records for a month straight (and expected to do so until.. uh... September 2016).

Helen Bush said...

I love Lilla Rose Hair Accessories, so I wouldn't mind seeing them as a prize. As for the hot temperatures, we try to hide inside or go swimming.

Michelle J. said...

I love the Amazon giveaways, because I buy everything through them!

Denise said...

I would definitely continue as you have been. Unfortunately I had a bad experience with Lilla Rose and would never enter another contest where they were providing the prize (I never got mine nor was I ever contacted by them after I won).

Becca said...

I love Amazon gift cards the best. I shop on there all the time. I am trying to deal with the heat but it has been hotter than usual for Southern California and I dont like it!

Kasee said...

I think that you should give away whatever you like. Lila Rose would be nice, but so are Amazon and PP monies.

MarciaF said...

I prefer Amazon so I can decide exactly what I want.

breanna pollard said...

The Amazon/PP would be great and the weather here is so hot!

alona y said...

I definitely love the flexi from Lilla Rose, I'd love to win one! The amazon cards are always good though.

throuthehaze said...

I prefer the gift cards. I've been trying to avoid the humidity by staying inside with the a/c.

Rebecca Moore said...

I love the gift cards :)

Carla Shiver said...

I think the gift cards are the best because you can get whatever you want. I'm not doing too well in the heat this year. I keep getting heat rashes.

Judy Thomas said...

Carry on as you are. It is so cold here in the "Winterless North" of New Zealand.

felicia sidoma said...

I would rather get books and gift cards. I don't wear hair thingies not enough hair. I don't ware make-up. I do use perfume. At this time Tucson, AZ is very very hot average temp is between 105 to 115. Heck it is 8:00pm and the temp is 83 degrees.

Crystal said...

I am a fan of Amazon/Paypal!
Loving the heat, just wish the rain would lay off a bit!

Laurie Nykaza said...

Amazon/PP are wonderful so love to keep it at that:)

Stephanie said...

I really love the Amazon and Paypal giveaways so then I can get anything.
Right now, I'm sweltering in the heat in New Orleans - waiting impatiently for the fall.

kimberly said...

I would definitely prefer the Amazon or Paypal giveaway since its international. Right now in the Caribbean its alternating between rainy and hot weather.

Lisa said...

I really like the Amazon/Paypal giveaways, it's a great prize because you can choose whatever you want!

Christine Beasley said...

Continue as you are. We are finally getting some respite from the heat.

Pink and Green Mom said...

I like the Amazon/PP option best. We are doing good in the heat and humidity because we just stay inside all day! Ha!
Erika W.

patanne1 said...

I'm more than happy with the GC/PP thing. Aside from the fact my hair is way too short to stick pretties in it I like the option of buying more books :-D

Here in the UK the heat is great for me. It's nothing like as hot as most of your followers are used to but we don't normally get as hot as it's been getting

Heather C said...

I would prefer the Amazon/PP option.
Actually, here, it has NOT been hot nor humid. We've had an unseasonably wet and cool summer. It's very odd. It's July and we have even had to turn the heat on a couple times at night.

Denise Low said...

I love to win anything. But I would say I like amazon the best. Thank you for the entry. We just had a bad storm today. The electric was out for about 4 hours. But it was not to bad. I think it could of been worse.

Lisa Weidknecht said...

I'm happy to enter giveaways for Amazon or for the hair clips. Love them both!

kiwi_chick_2882 said...

I would love both, gift cards are handy and I have an addiction to hair clips. Here in NZ there is no heat and humidity, instead we have just had weather that has been the coldest on record. Heat and humidity frankly sounds quite nice to me right now :)

Debbie said...

I prefer the amazon gift cards. The heat has been unbearable! As a southern gal, I thought I was used to it but this summer has been incredible.

Jeanette J said...

I am happy with the Amazon/PP option. It seems a number of giveaways that have a 'physical' prize like hair clips are not open to Canada.

Kathy Ross said...

I love Lila Rose. But I'd probably go with Amazon or Paypal. The heat and humidity could be worse but I try to stay inside when it's bad.

Julie Matek said...

I prefer amazon! I am staying cool in air conditioning :)

Jmatek AT wi DOT rr DOT com

Jen L said...

I would like either prize, although Paypal/Amazon is super easy. Thanks for the opportunity!

shirley said...

I really like Lilla Rose Hair Accessories, but most times I could use Amazon or PayPal more. I am melting in this weather.

Kim Hilbert said...

I love the look of Lilla Rose Hair accessories but I don't like to buy a hair clip without seeing them. My hair is tough on clips, I just broke one this morning putting it in. I've had others literally fly off my head. It was kind of funny since it was during a staff meeting.

I would love a giveaway with the hair clips, but I also love the paypal/amazon ones, too.

Danielle Merkle said...

I like the amazon/PP giveaway! Here in MI it hasn't been to bad actually. But this weekend it's suppose to be in the high 80s!

Diana South said...

I would love both! So maybe alternate between the two?! Also, this humidity out here in Georgia is no joke. I'm born and raised here and can never get over it each summer. Like I need to shower 3x a day. Ridiculous!

Andrea said...

I would prefer the amazon/paypal as I have boys so have no use for clips. (andrea amy)

Marnie G (Derrick Todd) said...

I like the Amazon/PP option. It really gives the flexibility to get what you want or need. Summer hasn't been too bad so far --- lots of rain here.

Tara W said...

I like the Amazon/PP option. The humidity is high with temps in the low to mid 90's.
RC- Tara Woods

tannawings said...

I LOVE Amazon but I have to admit my love of Lila Rose too they have such cute hair accessories.
Th heat but especially the humidity is awful here right now. I am in Iowa and it is so humid and hot if you are in the country you can hear the corn squeak because it is growing so fast.

ellen beck on form

ana12e said...

I prefer the PayPal prizes as I am not from US. And I'm doing ok with the heat.

heymissvirginia said...

Any giveaway is a great giveaway. I do love the Amazon. We have a lawn and landscaping business in South Florida and the heat and humidity is almost unbearable. Been going through a lot of sunscreen!
heymissvirginia at embarqmail dot com

Dorothy Teel said...

I enjoy the amazon gift cards, they can go towards my dream kitchen tools like a pressure cooker, nice items at Amazon, a lot to pick from

Julie Waldron said...

I like the gift cards. I am doing good, this seems like the first real hot days that we've had here in mid Michigan.

Jessica Cox said...

I love the gift cards I am a book nerd so that is how I buy books.Its hot here in Tennessee but more than that it has been storming a ton this month with lots of power outages

Stacey Smith said...

I' a Amazon / Paypal type of Girl! I love to pick what I want not what others may want.mostly Amazon because I love there books.

Sue said...

I Love Amazon gc giveaways! my favorite by far :) I live in Indiana and it has not been really hot here we have rained all summer long so far tho which hasnt been fun :(

Clair Freebie said...

I love the Amazon GC giveaways. I'm in full Christmas stockpile mode so they are always good to see and have a chance to win! And my AC is getting a work out! I live in ski country and see snow like 5 months a year but today we're suppose to see 90!

Lisa Olsen said...

I love it how it is thank you for the giveaway the heat isn't bad

Jen R said...

I prefer the Amazon GC prize because it allows the winner to get what they need. I personally am not in need of hair accessories. Here in Colorado we actually have had very nice weather this summer. I have enjoyed it.

carissa joslyn said...

I love Lilla Rose but also love the GC because i save up for my kids Christmas and birthdays as we have no income. :)
It hasn't been to hot here (Maine) it's been enjoyable, i know winter is coming soon and it was brutal and long last year.

Marnie Ward said...

The Lilla Rose Hair Accessories are beautiful butI would you rather win the $25 Amazon/PP. I love all of the options available to me from Amazon and PayPal.

I live in South Dakota and since we don't have a lot of water other than the man made lakes etc. we don't get a lot of humidity. The temperature may get as high as 100 degrees but it never seems that hot. I grew up in Virginia and the humidity there is awful. In Virginia during the summer all you have to do it walk outside and you begin to sweat. I lived in Virginia for 42 years and South Dakota for 8 years and I will take the weather in South Dakota any day!

Christy Maurer said...

I like the Amazon/PP option the best. I don't really put my hair up. This humidity is awful! It feels like I am in a sauna outside.

Jen B. said...

I like the amazon or Paypal options. These help so much. It is so hot I have bot been out till after dark, my Pug overheats fast, poor thing has to wait for walk till so late with these heat warnings.

Cori Westphal said...

I like Amazon. That way we can just choose what we want for a prize! Thanks for your generosity!

coriwestphal at gmail dot com

scottsgal said...

definitely prefer Amazon. This is the first weekend of the summer that has been hot and humid in Chicago - we've had a horrible summer, so much rain

Emily Endrizzi said...

I do prefer Amazon or PayPal, but I am open to hair accessories as well. Heat and humidity here were just awful today. Our A/C was working overtime!

Amy Deeter said...

i would love the amazon cards.i usually leave my hair down and the humidity as been horrible but im trying to make sure we all drink plenty of water

Cheryl Reinhardt said...

I would love to have Lilla Rose Hair Accessories as a giveaway.
californiapoppys@yahoo.com

slehan said...

I don't use hair stuff and I do like Amazon/Paypal. Our summer has been quite nice. We don't do humidity in Colorado.
Thanks for the contest.

slehan at juno dot com

Shea =) said...

I prefer the gift card/paypal option myself =) And this heat is horrid.. we've been hitting the 100's here in Tennessee! Too hot to do much of anything outside.

Mindy Bel said...

Thanks for the great giveaway!
A PayPal is a great prize, since I'm international reader and shipping usually costs a lot of $$...

Betty C said...

Thanks for the chance to win. I prefer Amazon as a prize but I'm happy with whatever you choose.
The heat is bad, but I much prefer it to the ice and snow in winter.

Shakeia Rieux said...

I would like to have Lilla Rose Hair Accessories as a prize.It would be nice to have something different although gift cards/cash are always good.I would be happy either way.The heat isn't too bad here in Bakersfield,we've been having nice weather lately and wish it would stay that way.

Dario Z said...

I'd rather continue the way it is with PP/Amazon :)

Dana S said...

Amazon gift cards are awesome so I would continue with that and thank you for the opportunity to win one! The heat and humidity has been ridiculous lately, but honestly I've been hiding out at home with the ac! :)

judy schechter said...

I think you should stick with the gift cards as prizes, that way everyone can get exactly what they need/want! I've been staying indoors due to the heat! Thanks for the fun blog hop!

clynsg said...

I prefer the gift cards, but am aware of the fact that some with hairdos, or daughters that need various decorative hair items, might like the accessories once in awhile. Since I have daughters and granddaughters as well, I can gift the hair things if I happen to win, it is just that the gift cards are so much more versatile. I had more trouble with the heavy rains we had last month, but they certainly did make the humidity much higher than normal, which can be pretty miserable!

Crystal Rose said...

I'd be happy with either prize. When my hair gets long again I'll need something to keep it up. I've been staying inside this summer.

Amanda Sakovitz said...

I'm happy with the Amazon and Paypal. I actually love the heat so I'm content now.

Roxana Z. said...

I prefer Amazon gift cards. In my country is sooooo hot I can't breathe normally, so I'm staying inside with the a/c as the only thing I need right now. Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

Charlene Kuser said...

I would rather have an Amazon gift card.The heat has been rough here,lots of humidity.but we are surviving it quite well.

Marta K said...

I like the possibility of choosing betwen the Amazon GC or the Paypal money.
Lately I spent a lot of time inside close doors due work so kinda holding on.. but next week let's see...

RICHARD HICKS said...

I prefer the Amazon/PP option. The hot muggy heat is awful here in central NC. I stay inside as much as possible
