Pumpkin Contest – Win an iPhone 5s or Cash! Ends Nov. 7th

Pumpkin Contest

Today, Wondershare Software kicked off a little Halloween fun with a new photo campaign on Instagram {by the way, you can follow me on Instagram here}.  The Pumpkin Fun campaign is perfect for families!  This is a photo contest for the best carved pumpkin captured or edited using Wondershare’s popular PowerCam photo app {which is available for both iPhone and Android phones}.  If I were you I would include a picture of you or your cute kids with the pumpkin!

The contest is simple; all you have to do is take a picture of a carved pumpkin on Halloween with the PowerCam app and submit in on Instagram with the campaign hashtag, #powercamhalloween.  The photos with the most votes will win and the grand prize is an iPhone 5s and runners up share a $200 cash pot.  PowerCam, which normally costs $0.99 will be free for a few days leading up to the contest.

If you enter please let me know so I can vote for you!  To read all of the official rules visit Wondershare’s Pumpkin Fun Contest.

Call Me Maybe Nail Art

Call Me Maybe Nails!

These sweethearts whether near or far will always be connected by their love.

Right now, they’re talking on the telephone and he’s making her blush.


One of my good friends, Emily from Live2Save2Live, told me about a nail design contest that Sally Hansen was hosting.  I didn’t really figure I had a shot but I thought it would be fun to play around with polishes to find a design to fit the “Sweethearts” theme they chose.  My final design turned out better than I thought it would so I’ve decided to submit it.  I have titled it, “Call Me Maybe.”  What do you think?  Cute?


To Vote: 

To vote for my design, go to Sally Hansen’s Nail Art Contest to vote for my entry.  Thank you!  {It should pull up my entry automatically but if it doesn’t just search for Ashley Walkup.}


How To Replicate:

To replicate this simple design all you need is a couple basic nail polish pens and a nail polish in your favorite shade.  I recommend practicing once or twice on paper with an ink pen and then once with the polish pen before you dive in.  Also, make sure the polish pen has dried fully before giving it a top coat {if you choose to do so}.
