A #Fudge Lovers #Giveaway! (US) Ends: 8/14, 11:59PM/EST

Oh boy! This is a Fudge Lovers Giveaway that I promoting and sharing with you, my readers and subscribers of Selena Thinking Out Loud With Purpose. I am a lover of sweets especially when tender loving care is put into the preparation process. I am delighted to share Mt. Baker Candy Co. FUDGE with you by way of this nice review and giveaway by fellow blogger SaraLee's Deals Steals & Giveaways!

Mt. Baker Candy Co. in Bellingham, Washington has been hand making fudge, chocolates, caramel apples, and other delicious treats since 2006. Now fudge lovers across the country can enjoy this gourmet confection that our local customers have loved for years.

Our rich, decadent fudge is handmade in small batches using a secret fifty-year-old recipe. We use the finest ingredients available to create more than thirty mouth-watering varieties, from your favorite classics to unique flavors you won’t find anywhere else.

I choose the Chocolate Walnut and here is there description for it:
Sometimes you want to stick with the classics. Our traditional chocolate walnut fudge is packed with fresh walnuts and is sure to bring back memories of your grandma's fudge. It's an old fashioned flavor that will definitely please every palate.

The Chocolate Walnut fudge was shipped in a styrofoam cooler and with us having 90+ degree days it kept the fudge from melting. I like how it was packed and sealed. I cut off a piece right while I was blogging and the fudge is so good. My husband & I love fudge so this only lasted two days in my house. I like all the different flavors they have and ordering was simple and easy.

My mom and son are M&M fans so I think I know what I can get them as a treat. I love finding gift ideas through my reviews.

Now for the giveaway: One (1) lucky person will win a 1/2 pound box of fudge in winners choice of flavor. This is open to the US lower 48 states only and ends 8/14 @ 11:59 pm est. To enter, simply do the tasks on the Rafflecopter widget below and you're set to have a chance to win!

Free Training Call for Actors - Social Media Help -- Tuesday, July 24th, 10AM/PST (1PM/EST) **Must Register for Call**

Being an actor is more than about booking work but it is also a business. Social media has become so necessary to the success of actors and anyone looking to promote themselves and grow their businesses. Dallas Travers has announced a FREE Call on Tuesday, July 24, 2012, 10AM/PST (1:00PM/EST) that will provide you with free training to get you on the right track with using social media in your acting business.
Here's the message from Dallas I received in my inbox:
In January, 200 smart actors learned how to build real relationships with industry A-listers, make gatekeepers virtually disappear, and some even secured representation and booked work.  And they accomplished this and more with the help of social media. 
If you're surprised, maybe you're falling victim to one of these social media mistakes:
  1. You're ignoring it.
  2. You're underestimating it.
  3. You're wasting it.
 If you want to be one of the few savvy actors who know how to leverage social media then don't miss the free "Power Player Success Files" call I'm doing with my friend Thérèse Cator on Tuesday July 24th.    
This free call is not to be missed because you're going to hear from three of your fellow actors who started as social media newbies, and now they're social media rockstars.   
So, click here to find out more and grab your free spot on the "Power Player Success Files" call now. 

Have a great week, Dallas 
I hope that if you are an actor, you are able to make it on this call to learn about how important social media is in your career and how to get started using it and not feel overwhelmed and frustrated by it. ~Selena Brown
Remember, Social Media is your friend.
