The Kentucky Derby starts this weekend and although I may not be going I can't help but fantasize about the gorgeous dresses and fun hats. The big "notice me" hat is the quintessential accessory for the Kentucky Derby and the choices are endless -- a fascinator headband, a big straw number, loads of tulle, or ornamental flowers. Above are just some looks that I wouldn't mind wearing to the derby one day, or maybe I'll just play dress-up at home while sipping on a mint julep. Hey, a girl can pretend, right?

I'm excited to share w/ y'all The Cottonelle Great Finish Sweepstakes! Cottonelle is upping the ante at this year’s Kentucky Derby and launching “The Cottonelle Great Finish,” a giveaway that will reward Americans with a year supply of Cottonelle products should the No. 1 and No. 2 positioned racehorses place in that order during the race. People looking to get in on the action can sign up at the Cottonelle landing page. The first 15,000 entrants to sign up will be awarded a year’s supply of Cottonelle toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths if the outcome aligns.
So, what does this really mean?? Not having to shell out money for toilet paper all year, so you can put your money to real use like shoe shopping. ;)

Here's how to enter:

1. Visit the Cottonelle landing page.
2. Click on the Cottonelle Great Finish Giveaway
3. Click on "Sign up now"
4. Register for the Cottonelle Updates website

Thanks to Cottonelle for sponsoring today's post. All opinions are my own.
