The Life of Bon: Free stuff, what?

Free stuff, what?

Trust me.  I know how you feel.

It's the middle of January.
There's no snow.
It's ugly as sin outside. 
Christmas is long over.
It's cold and miserable.
No money left in the budget.
Summer seems millions of years away.
And what have you got to look forward to?
Month after month of five day work weeks.
There ain't nothing good about the middle of January.

But do not fear!
I've got something to cheer you up....
Something... FREE!

Yep, you better believe I just said the magic word- FREE!

Out of the kindness of my heart, I am giving away two necklaces this month.  The necklaces are made by Mia and feature the stunning eiffel tower.  What better to beat the January blues than an eiffel tower pendant hanging from your dainty little neck?  When you're bummed you can just look down at the necklace and think, "By golly some day I'll be in Paris instead of stuck doing _____(insert what you don't like doing but are currently stuck doing here)____."

Here's how you win. 

1.  If you are already a follower of the blog, leave a comment on this post saying what makes you happy.

2.  If you are not a follower of the blog, FOLLOW IT!  It's so easy you'll think it's a joke.  All you have to do is go to the top left sidebar underneath the "about me."  See the big blue button that says "Join this site"?  Click it!  And VOILA, you are entered in the drawing!

3.  For an extra entry into the drawing, post your favorite lifeofbon entry on your facebook wall.  Make sure to tag me in it or leave a comment telling me that you posted it so I can make sure to enter you in the drawing twice.


Here are last month's winners, showing off their gorgeous earrings.

Now I know what you're thinking, how in the world did I get those super sexy models to send me pictures for free?!?  I have my ways, people, and if you think I'm going to tell you all my secrets, you're a fool.

If you want to order some of Mia's jewelry, she's offering a 30% discount through Friday.  Just enter lifeofbon in the box that allows you to put in a coupon code.  I mean, come on, who doesn't love a coupon?!?!


  1. Ok, first off, just tell "Mia" that I'm actually going to buy some of her jewelry...and also that I DID NOT miss her birthday - she just needs to check her Facebook. Also, what makes me happy is that the winter part of your poem does not apply to me because I live in the valley of the sun. :) Not to rub it in or anything...However, I miss you terribly and I would totally give up the sunshine to be back in Provo with the female loves of my life (I live with the boy already).

  2. Bonnie,

    What would make me happy right now would to be actually back in Paris where we spent 3 amazing days this summer, and ride bikes around Paris, sit at a church and play "your future boyfriend/girlfriend" and sit next to the actual Eiffel Tower at one in the morning just to watch it sparkle. That is a time where I was truly happy. :)

  3. Sleep makes me happy. And chocolate croissants. (this is Mindy)

  4. I love the Eiffel Tower necklace. As a French teacher, I feel I NEED it. It could really cure my mid-January blues.

  5. I am a new follower, and I must admit I am in love with your blog. Aaaaaand the fact that we are halfway through January makes me happy, because let's be honest, January is the worst.

  6. Flowers. Especially when you're student teaching a 2nd grade class with a 5 month old at home. Especially when that five month old refuses to sleep through the night. Especially when the flowers were unexpectedly sent to the school you student teach at from your husband, and he just wanted to brighten up your day. That happened. It was the BEST.

  7. Bonnie, the thing that makes me so happy in life is showing up to B lunch on A days and waiting in anticipation for my favorite girl, Bonnie(YOU!), to walk through the faculty room door. You always have a great story to share, a contagious laugh and an interest in other people that really makes us all feel important.

  8. Bonnie I love playing scrabble with your mom. I think because last time I won. Oh and also I love your school stories. They make me miss teaching! Sometimes ...okay maybe not very much.

  9. Getting scalp treatments with you and Crazy A and watching the Bachelor make me happy ;)

  10. What makes me happy is when we both make time in our busy lives to hang out with each other. Yes, I can hardly believe I have reverted to the "hanging out" stage.

  11. What makes me happy is:
    Getting packages in the mail.
    Smell of rain
    Having a day off work to literally do nothing!
    Jeff(this is an obvious one)
    Gelato in my mouth
    Free stuff
    and you as my cousin(sort of)!
    Love Jessica
