Show Your #ZeviaStyle Contest

What makes you original? When you think about an “original” piece of art, etc. you automatically know it is a “one of a kind”, that it was the first of it’s kind (and that it is going to cost a LOT of money!) But seriously, we are of course all different, but what is it about you that makes you different from everyone else? That is the question Zevia is asking YOU.

Zevia is hosting a contest from August 15 – September 5 to find out what makes you an original, and how Zevia can fit into your original style. Every day of the contest, Zevia is giving away cool prizes, including a $100 Target gift card every single day!

For those who don’t know much about Zevia it is “The Smarter Soda” because it has no calories, no sugar, no artificial sweeteners, and loads of flavors. My favorite is the Cream soda (holy yum) with a close second being Dr. Zevia.

So, I had to really think about their question. I don’t consider myself an out of the box type of person, (actually I am pretty boring!) but, I do have my own voice (hello, blogger for nearly five years!) and I like to do things a certain way. Sometimes that “way” is the way others do things, and sometimes I do things that make me ME. I do go against the grain sometimes, and not for attention or to get people to notice, but simply because it’s what I think is best and right for me, and that makes me an original. Being Pregnant has really made me notice this more than ever. EVERYONE has an opinion on how to do things, what the “right” way is, and how I should be spending my time, handling my pregnancy, and even how I should “plan” my labor (as if that is in my control!)

I have had to learn to stand up for myself and what is best for me and my growing family, even if it isn’t the popular choice amongst healthy living bloggers and the rest of the world, and I AM OK WITH THAT because I am my own original person.


I love that Zevia sent me a tank big enough that I can still fit into it right now!

This is how my refrigerator looks, and has looked during my whole pregnancy. The ginger ale flavor REALLY helped get me through morning sickness! It has real ginger in it, yes!

Ok, so back to the contest. Head over to Zevia right now and submit your pics for the contest! There is even a gallery you can view for inspiration. When posting pics on social media, be sure to #ZeviaStyle (tag me too, I would love to see!)

Get out there today and be the best version of you that you can be!
