I love the readers that have found me and that read and comment loyally--but I'm feeling greedy and I want more! I'm kind of amazed at so many of the blogs I see that have zillions of comments--how is it happening!? I'm not really sure?
But I decided that my first step is to have a really fun and exciting giveaway!
Have you heard of LUSH bath products? They are my absolute favorite! The scents are amazing and different and each one looks like a little work of art! So I went out today and put a beautiful basket-full of stuff together (while I was buying a few things for myself!) that I'm going to give away to one lucky reader! I will also have two "runner up" gifts!
Check out the basket:
One "Think Pink" bath bomb. I use this one a lot--its scents are vanilla and lavender and it makes your skin super soft.
"Big Blue" bath bomb--smells very fresh and clean and turns the bathwater a beautiful aqua blue. This is my son, Patrick's, favorite.
"Butterfly" bath bomb: This one is Gooser's favorite. It smells so good in the bath and releases flower petals and little butterflies!
"Honeybee" bath bomb: I LOVE this one! It smells like honey and toffee and it's very calming.
"Rock Star" soap! This is my favorite soap because I like feeling like a rock star, plus I love pink. This one has a sweet, bubblegummy fragrance--but in a good way!
"Sexy Peel" soap. This one is very citrusy--see the little pieces of lemon peel and stuff in it? Very refreshing!
"Honey I Washed the Kids" soap. This was the first LUSH soap I ever tried and I adore it. It smells like honey--but even better. I'm addicted to it!
"Creamy Candy" bubble bar. These bubble bars are the best thing ever! You crumble them into the tub as you're running the water and they make copious amounts of bubbles. This one smells sugary and I love it.
"Ma" bubble bar. This one is like chocolate and toffee! OMG!!
And last, but not least: "The Comforter" bubble bar. This one is sort of like berries and cream. Plus it's huge so you could break it in half and use it for two baths! Whew! That's a lot! About $100 worth of stuff. And the two runners-up will each get a bubble bar and a bath bomb.
Here's how this will go down: Leave a comment here and you will be entered in the giveaway.
Now, in order to "drum up business" I'm going to give a few other options for increasing your number of entries. Let me just interject here that I feel a little uneasy about doing this--I don't like the idea of "bribing" people to "like" my blog--so please, only do this part if you really want to!
--If you mention my blog/ this giveaway in your blog and link back--you get FIVE extra entries (please make sure you let me know!).
--If you add this cute little tag to your side bar (that my friend Andrea made--thank you, Andrea!) you get another FIVE entries.
If you want to use the graphic--please copy this code: here **Sorry--my code link isn't working at the moment--hopefully it will fix itself later!
& paste it into the HTML box of your SIDEBAR.
--If I am already on your blogroll or if you add me to your blogroll--you will get TWENTY entries (again, please let me know).
If you do everything, that's 31 entries! Pretty good!
I will leave the giveaway open for two weeks. Entries will be closed August 24 at 5 p.m. (Central Time). The winners will be announced on Monday, August 25 in the morning. I'll do a video of the kids pulling the names out of hat--or something resembling a hat! Be sure to check back and see if you're the winner.
