IFBC Swag Giveaways! Win Some Random Swag or 5 Dozen Eggs!

It's been a busy few weeks for me since IFBC, and I've been agonizing over which swag I wanted to keep and what I wanted to include in a giveaway! Since my deal with my sister involved her getting all the gluten- and dairy-filled food items as a "thank you" for taking my kids all weekend, there aren't a lot of food items left to include! So I have a nice assortment of reusable shopping bags, recipe books, notebooks, and a few food items and kitchen gadgets!

I had a great time, not only learning some helpful stuff for food bloggers in the training sessions, but also getting info about upcoming food trends (Celiac and the Beast has a great rundown!) and meeting (or re-meeting!) blogger friends new and old! I especially enjoyed going to the Sur la Table headquarters for the optional pre-conference excursion hosted by them and KitchenAid!

Next year the conference will be July 29-31 in Sacramento, and I've already bought my ticket! Get $50 off from October 1 through December 31 with code EARLY

Disclaimer: I was given a discounted blogger rate to attend IFBC 2015 in exchange for writing 3 posts about the conference. We were given full discretion to choose our own topics. No other compensation or direction was given. 

Please note that there are TWO different giveaways. Please read the terms and conditions in each rafflecopter – they matter! These are random giveaways open to US residents only. No purchase necessary. You may enter and win either or both giveaways, if you are eligible.
I will contact each winner via email, and winners must respond within 48 hours or I will have to pick someone new.

  1. Thanks for sharing the love! I wish that they would have conferences like this near me!

  2. Yay! They are sold at the Ralph's that I shop at!
