Let's celebrate...with a GIVEAWAY!

The just made up 3 hours ago much sought-after, long-anticipated GIVEAWAY is here! It's FINALLY here. I know you have all just been sitting there with eyes glued to the screen, mouses (mice?) ready, eagerly awaiting my second ever giveaway. And now that the kiddos are taped down in beds with duct tape snuggly tucked into bed and the husband is nowhere in sight! down in the basement working on a devotion, I'm staying true to my word and preparing the quickly thrown together most random and cheap best giveaway ever for you! Yes YOU. Because I now have 102 followers and that is reason to celebrate. Shoot...5 followers is reason to celebrate!

So if you are just joining in because someone you know and love directed you to this giveaway, don't get too excited, but don't leave just yet! My review of this product is totally biased. Besides myself, my kids and a couple of friends who "ooh"-d and "ahh"-ed (but didn't ask me to make them any either because they didn't like it and were being polite or they're jerks--just kidding friends!), no one else has tried this homemade lotion of mine. Sure other people out there SOMEWHERE have tried it, because I got the recipe online...but you know what I mean. Basically, you just have to take my word for it that it's a good product!

One lucky winner will receive their choice of an 8 oz. bottle of all natural, dye and chemical free body lotion, in either a Cool Ivy scent (my favorite) or Lavender Woods. If you have sensitive skin or eczema, I'd go for the Lavender Woods, as it is made strictly with essential oils, which are completely safe for the skin. My daughter with bad eczema has been using this new lotion and hasn't had softer, smoother, healthier skin in 6 years! I tend to exaggerate...but in this I do not. I cannot believe how good her skin is looking and feeling after years of it feeling like sandpaper.

Oh and by the way, this will probably be the most unorganized, haphazard giveaway you have ever seen! But enter anyway. Because it's free. And because you want me to have more than one person enter my second giveaway, don't you? Can I get some pity entries please? :-) You'll have a month's worth of great lotion (give or take a few days/months depending on how often you actually use lotion) without spending $10.50 or more at Bath & Body Works!

Everyone else has a mandatory entry so I decided that I would too. Because it's the "thing" to do, right? Alright...here we go.

Be sure to leave your email address in a form you are comfortable with in the comment and leave a separate comment for each entry (i.e. 2 entries = 2 comments)

Mandatory entry: Tell me in the comments which scent you'd prefer.

Cool Ivy
a blend of Cool Water for Women oil and Ivy oil
Lavender Woods
a blend of Lavender (known for calming/soothing) and Cedarwood
