Freebies, Give-A-Ways and Good Stuff...

I am really excited about my bloggy makeover.
Let's celebrate this fun occasion with a giveaway.

As I have mentioned before I am an at home sales consultant for The Body Shop. One day I inquired, twelve later I received three boxes full of products and training materials. Within a few weeks, I set up a "girls night out" (GNO) with a few friends. Sitting outside with 5 ladies I made money.... yup, that easy. I started small and stayed small, but the sky really is the limit.

This Body Shop giveaway is a step in the right direction.....

Get those winter toes ready for spring by soaking them in Peppermint Foot Soak. This 7.0 oz container makes for many soothing and deodorizing spa experiences in your own home. Once you have soaked your feet they are ready for the large pumice stone. Sluff away months of "boot feet", dry them, then lather them with Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion (8.4 oz.) This is a customer favorite for the last fourteen years...a must have for summer. All these items fit nicely inside the roomycanvas cosmetic bag.

How do you win:
Tell me....after The Body Shop items work their magic what color nail polish would you put on them?
For an additional entry, just start to follow my blog or you can just stalk me. Whatever tickles your tootsies.
*Please leave a separate comment for each entry.

*Semi important stuff.
This Annonandon sponsored gift-a-way is open to United States and my new Canadian homies. The final day to enter is Sunday, March 22, 2009. I will then e-mail the lucky winner. You will have only 3 days to claim your prize before I move on to the next person.



If you are a little curious about becoming an at home consultant let me know. I will email you the info, you can read it and if you want to know more, email me again. You control the situation.

Cool beans I would likely paint them some fancy pink to make me feel more springy! Of course that would mean I would have to do my daughters also!

♥Trina♥ said...

Since my feet are beginning to look tan (thanks to the tanning bed) I'd have to go with some bright color--a delish red, a hot pink, or maybe a fantastic coral.

I love having my feet pampered. :)

Michelle said...

I think my feet just did a little happy dance :) I'd put on a shade of purple... probably one of the OPIs, but I have about six to choose from. Since we're not fully into spring yet, probably one of my darker ones. I so need a pedicure :)

Michelle said...

And yes, I am following now, too :)

Jen said...

SUH-WEET!!!! :) oh my heck! i totally know that after this, i would try my hand at a french manicure for my toes. let's not remember that i can barely reach them right now...

how cool that you're an at home consultant for the BODY SHOP! i freakin' love that place. i'm definitely curious- i don't think i can do it any time really soon- but email me the deets por favor.

also- i may have an order for you...if you do long distance stuff...not for me...there are 2 women in shane's medical group over in afghanistan who i'm sure are going to suffer "pretty girly things" withdrawal at some point. ok...so one maybe not so much, but the other will. i am thinking of sending them something now and again and maybe i can order it from you...

miss ann- is there ANYTHING you cannot do?!

Veggie Mom said...

Oh, most definitely HOT PINK! What a fun giveaway...thanks!

Julia said...

First of all my feet are horrendous. But after working on them they might be presentable...I would use a very light pink. Almost clear. How's that?

SharonAnne said...

I was just looking at my feet, and realized winter has taken it's toll on them. I like to use a mauve color,as it goes with whatever I'm wearing. This would be a terrific product for my 17 yr old son too. He's been in hockey skates most of the winter, and his callouses are getting callouses! Thanks. sharonanne56[at]yahoo[dot]com

techyone said...

I would use a pretty bright pink color on my pampered toes.

Deborah said...

I would use an almost sheer shell pink. asthenight at gmail dot com

A nice bright orange...it is spring after all! My toes have been hiding all winter.
