See the happy faces in that photo? That pretty much sums up how I feel about the surprise I have for you today.
I am SO EXCITED.
OK, so whenever we take a long car trip with our kids, I start out sitting in the front like a normal person, but within minutes I end up wedged into the teeny, tiny space in between their two car seats, distributing pacifiers and sippy cups and toys, my purse crushed under my feet and an action figure stabbing its plastic sword into the small of my back. And at some point during these rides, I always fall into a daydream: our car has been replaced by a gorgeous (and huge) RV with a refrigerator and a breakfast table and a bed covered in a big, colorful quilt, and instead of sitting in traffic on I-95 we’re driving along Route 66, stopping to buy dreamcatchers and eat BBQ and pulling over to the side of the road at night to stare up at the wide-open, star-filled sky.
I’ve been a Diet Coke fan for literally as long as I can remember (there is, at present, a stunningly large crate of Diet Coke sitting in my refrigerator). And if you’re a fan too, you know what I mean when I say that the first sip of a Diet Coke makes your afternoon instantly better. Diet Coke is launching a new campaign asking people what their life would look like if it tasted as good as Diet Coke, and – this is SO cool – they’re giving one Ramshackle Glam reader the chance to make that fantasy come true.
My fantasy is a Route 66 trip in an airstream…but I want to know yours, because we’re going to be picking one winner whose dream scenario (up to a $1,000 value) will be brought to life.
Some examples to inspire you:
The great taste of Diet Coke could…
- Turn my Friday morning commute into a plane ride to a weekend getaway
- Upgrade my nosebleed-level concert tickets to front-row seats
- Transform my Saturday of running errands into a day at the spa
- Turn my boring old bag into a spectacular style I’ll keep forever
This is without question the coolest giveaway we have ever done here, and I can’t wait to see what you guys dream up…and then make that dream come true for the winner.
Just stick within that thousand-dollar budget (and make sure it’s a tangible upgrade that we can physically make happen for you)…and get to fantasizing. Comment below telling me what it is that would make your life brighter, and I’ll announce the winner on October 13 via email.
Diet Coke is a sponsor of Ramshackle Glam.
