another celebration

Today's blessing:

Amazing! It seems like just yesterday I was doing my first giveaway for reaching 5000 blog views, and now it's doubled! Wow!

I wanted to do something special for you, my friends, for helping me reach this exciting milestone. I mean, five digits...that's pretty cool!

I've been playing around with some do-it-yourself spa stuff lately, and it's been a lot of fun. So, I figured I might as well share the fun with you! In thanks for your kind devotion - whether you read every post, once in while, or have just stopped by because you saw the chance to win something - I think you'll enjoy this one. I'm giving away a little collection of my homemade spa treatments! Here is what the kit will include:

Peppermint Grapefruit Salt Scrub
If you live in the Midwest like me, you may be just starting to think about summer and getting your feet flip-flop ready! This fresh smelling scrub will do just the trick - I started using it a few weeks ago once or twice a week, and for the first time, they didn't have to bring out the nasty heavy-duty cheese grater thing for my feet when I went for a pedicure! (Out of, you know, the four times in my life I've had a pedicure.)

Honey Vanilla Bubble Bath
It smells so good, and it leaves your skin feeling so nice and soft! You might think it would be sticky, but it's not; I promise!

Homemade Soy Candle
In my favorite scent: Warm Vanilla Sugar!

There you have it - everything you need for a relaxing night to yourself!

We'll see, maybe I'll even throw in some more fun stuff if I try any more great recipes in the next week!

Note: I actually am moderating the entries...you are required to comment on this post for any of your other entries to count, so if you say you commented but you actually didn't, you will not be eligible to win. I know, I'm mean!

  1. Would you be willing to share the recipe for your salt scrub? Because it sounds amazing!! (And I try to avoid the cheese grater too ;) )

    1. Sure! I just found it on Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/93168286015659229/

  2. I'd love to win...if relatives are allowed!

  3. I love that you are making your own spa treatments - I've always thought about it!!!

  4. I go to the salon with my cousin or get pedicures with my grandma to pamper myself!

  5. That's such a cool idea to make your own!

  6. To be honest, I don't do a lot with "stuff" for pampering - this sounds like fun! I pamper myself by indulging in books - lol. Visiting as an FMF and #fmfpartysnailmail friend :)
