GingerKitty’s Shatter Polish Jewelry Giveaway

I like jewelry.  I like it a lot and, I have a lot.  That doesn’t mean I don’t want to continue to add to my collection either.

Check out this website owned by Tracey called ‘GingerKitty Designs.’ 

This very generous sweetie is hosting a giveaway of one of her creations.  See, she makes jewelry out of nail polishes.  It’s a trade secret how she creates this magic, but it’s freakin’ amazing!!!

Looky….

Want to see more of her creations?  Go to her Esty store.

I’m so going to get something, I just can’t pick which one.  OK…I’ll get more than one.  My jewelry collection can’t be complete without at least one of these pretties by my friend, Tracey.

A Stinkin’ Cute Giveaway

You know what’s cute?

But you know what’s really cute?

That would be Libby’s pinky lips.

But, you want to know what’s STINKIN’ CUTE???

These are.

So are these.

And these are as well.

When I told my hubs I was thinking of a ‘stinkin’ cute’ giveaway, he thought I should ‘test’ out that label as someone might be offended by it.  I said ‘so what.’  If it offends anyone, they just don’t have to enter.  How simple is that!?  But ‘stinkin’ cute’ is meant as a term of endearment, seriously.  And that’s what I feel about my followers; you are all so cute!

Everything here is new, purchased by me and all to one prize winner.  But you got to enter.

The Most Timely Giveaway, So Just Chill

This is one of most exciting giveaways I’ve held to date.  I’m really, really excited about this one.

I have been using a digital muscle massager on my tense and achy shoulders and neck muscles.  I, now, have the means to get a wonderful massage at any time.  It may sound like a joke at first, but if I ask my husband to rub my shoulders, it goes something like this:

Me:  Honey, would you plllleeeeeeassssse massage my neck and shoulders?  They reeeeeeeeallllllly hurt.
Husband:  *sigh*  OK.  Now?
Me:  Pleeeeeease?  They reeeealllly hurt!
Husband:  *sigh*  OK.  Where does it hurt?
Me:  It’s my neck and shoulders.  It reeeeeeealllly hurts.  Bad.
Husband:  *sigh*  OK.  *puts hands on each of my shoulders.  squeezes 3 times.  pats me on the back*  There.
Me:  *bewildered*  Thanks?

Thing is, when I tell this very truthful story to my married friends, they say the SAME thing!

This is my answer to never having to put my husband ‘out’ to just rub my shoulders, again.

Who would have guessed that we could replace the begging for a shoulder massage with a unit that’s the size of a cell phone?

The set that I have been testing is the limited edition Pinook Massager Set.  It comes with the following:
– a massage control unit  with 6 massage modes (kneading, tapping, acupuncture and combination, foot therapy, holographic auricular therapy) and a timer for 10 to 60 minutes
– 2 pair of massage pads
– recharger cord using electricity
 – recharger cord using your computer’s USB port
– pair of foot massage pads
– massage pad holder for when you are not using them
– 2 separate cords for using 2 pairs of massage pads
– all the directions and instructions. 
Retail value is $480.  Or, the price of 7 one hour massages.

It wouldn’t be fair to say the holidays are stressful, for me.  Everything’s stressful to me.  Even sleep.  But, this massage unit is helping my shoulders feel reeeeeeeealllllly good!

Now, the part that reeeeeealllllly makes me happy: I get to give away a mini massager set.  Yeeeaaaayyyy!  This is what the set looks like…

The instrument is small in size and easy to operate.

Features:
• Digital control display
• 6 massage modes (kneading, tapping, acupuncture and combination , foot therapy, holographic auricular therapy)
• Adjustable timer for your convenience (10-60 minutes)
• 20 levels of intensity
• Extremely small dimensions (smaller than an Ipod!)
• Rechargeable Lithium battery

Retail value: $350.

Elad, is the owner of the business, Body Therapy, that is sponsoring the giveaway.  Oh, what an adorable guy!

He was very excited to sponsor this giveaway.  And, if you cannot wait and want a massager set right now, he is offering all of Libby’s followers a 10% discount on any massage unit.  He asks that you email him directly at mrpapoon(at)gmail.com with what you’d like to order and let him know that Libby sent you.

Did I say it was perfect timing?  At this time of year?  You betcha!!!  I have been using my massage unit, at least, twice a day.  Beats the hell out of plllllleeeeeeeadinnnnnng for a neck rub.

This product has been given to me for my honest opinion and review.  The massage set for the giveaway is sponsored by Elad Papoon, owner of Body Therapy.  The giveaway unit will be shipped directly to the winner from Mr. Papoon.

Glamorous Glitter Giveaway

This giveaway is coming out early because I feel that many of these colors would work for the holidays.  I have made my own collection from Forever XXI polishes.  They are the Glamorous Glitter Collection.

(Today’s lighting is provided by ‘Sucks Wind’)  The top photo shows a line up of most of the colors in this collection.  In the second photo, we have:  Charcoal, Silver, Teal (a green one), Teal (more blue-ish), Dark Purple.

In this line up: Purple, Magenta, Brown, Gold and White.  Such inspiring names!!!!  NOT!
So, just forget the bland names and enjoy these micro-glitter beauts.

Outside light was kinder to the shades:

Here are mini bottles of Silver Glitter and Gold Glitter.

I found another color to add to these.  These are bottles that are all the same shape.  Charcoal (still a different color than the previous Charcoal), Teal and Dark Purple.

Eight shades in the round bottles.

Silver, Charcoal, Teal, and Purple.

Magenta, Brown, Gold and White.

Just to get a closer look at the micro-glitter, here are a few single, close ups:

Oh, and the gratuitous pink polish is missing.  If I can find a sparkly one in my stash, I’ll add it.  Probably along with other ‘special’ things too.

Here are the rules for the Glamorous Glitter Giveaway:

MANDATORY (1 SINGLE ENTRY)
*1)  You must be a follower of my blog.  Note this in your comment and what name you use.  You must have your email address on every entry you make.  Someone didn’t do this on the last contest. 🙁

EXTRA ENTRY OPPORTUNITIES
*2)  Tweet about it and let me know.  1 extra entry
*3)  Post about this on your Facebook, let me know.  1 extra entry.
*4)  Post this to your blog, put on the sidebar, on your listing giveaways, anyway is good, as long as you have it somewhere visible on your blog. Give me the link and link it back here. 3 extra entries on this one.

Giveaway is international.  You can do all entries on one comment or each individually, just make sure you put your email address on each entry.  Any entry that doesn’t have an email address, gets removed from the entries.  If you have won with me before, you can still enter! 

This giveaway closes on 11/27/10 at 10 PM EST. 

Just as a side note:  I sponsor my giveaways myself.  No one gives me freebies to hand out or to giveaway.  These polishes are new and have not been used.  They come from Forever 21, so they are not high-dollar polishes.  I have some of these polishes in my own collection and have been surprised at how nice they are.  If you don’t like cheapy polish, please don’t enter. 

Also, I am not, all the time, doing giveaways because I’m trying to get a high follower count.  I think it comes naturally when you have a nice giveaway AND a fun blog, however, I want followers that do read my posts.  I love sharing and enjoy making others feel happy and special.  I certainly am not in ‘competition’ with other nail/makeup bloggers to get a high follower count.

In the meantime, just be kind to each other and chill….

Megan owns ‘Kitschy Suburbia‘ blog.  She has reached her 150th post on her blog and she is celebrating it by having a giveaway.

Now, first off, I think Megan should get the prize because this is one busy chick!  Yet finds time to spend with her family, work a job in the medical field (been there, I know how draining that work can be), whip up some awesomely good meals and shares the recipes, and, on top of all that has her own blog sharing her love of nail polishes, along with family life.  Phew!  Seriously, I couldn’t do all that AND still be as sweet as Megan.

Here is just a bit of the giveaway (and it’s a sweet one!!!!)…

This photo belongs to Kitschy Suburbia.  I have been given permission to use it in this post.

This is a collection called ‘Glitter Vixen’ from Color Club.  Which, just happens to be one of my very favorite brands.  Put some glitter in it and O-M-G!!!  I don’t have this one, but would love to add it to my collection.

In order to find out what you can do to get your entry in, go over to Kitschy Suburbia Blog, check out the rules for entering and do follow this blog.  It’s all-around fun and Megan is a sweetheart.

A Giveaway To Honor Breast Cancer Awareness

It has been a full month of pink.  Of course, Libby LOVES pink.  However, the pink for this month is to raise awareness about breast cancer.  And it’s a cause I like to contribute to.  I made some purchases that contribute to the awareness and you can get the goodies!

Here are some of the items in my Breast Cancer Awareness giveaway.  I love that OPI contributes to breast cancer awareness.  Each year they sell a pink polish that donates proceeds for awareness.  This color is ‘Pink of Hearts 2010.’

The color is more light pink than this photo shows.  And I really wanted to capture the teeny tiny shimmers; it’s not really a frost.  It’s just a cute, fun pink!

How about candy that donates?  That was easy!

Can you see the pink ribbon on the York Peppermint Patty?  Seche Vite has a bottle with a pink bracelet.

Can you see the plastic pink ribbon on top of the fluff on the pen?  When you write, it lights up!  I like girly pens because, in my house, no one else is going to be caught using them.  Hee heee!

And the other items are just to make the giveaway a tad bit juicier!
The Piggy Polish is called ‘Pink-nic.’  It is an orangy-pink, especially next to ‘Pink of Hearts.’  However, there is micro-glitter in this that is fuchsia.  Darling!!!

I have a Mega Mixer lip balm from Wet’N’Wild named ‘Electric Lemonade.’  Another yummy!  And I found a Sally Hansen pink file for fragile nails.

There’s going to be a few other things added but that’s what’s fun about my giveaways; there’s always a bit more in it than I show.  I love pleasant surprises!!

My story:  I had a scare when I was  34 years old.  I had to have a tumor removed from my left breast.  In my heart of hearts, I knew it wasn’t cancerous.  But my doctor didn’t.  Several days after surgery, she called me to tell me it was benign.  I just have that ‘spooky-ness’ that I knew already.  I wasn’t afraid at any point. 

I asked a dear friend to think about me the day I went in for surgery, she said she would.  When I called her the next day I told her I could feel her presence with me but there was also someone else, and I thought that was unusual (like all the rest wasn’t!!).  She said that she had one of her friends come over and they both focused on sending me healing thoughts.  No matter how I look at this, it had a perfect outcome.
