HAPPY ONE YEAR BLOGGIVERSARY TO ME!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Woohoo! YAY! Happy Dance!

It's so fantastically amazingly awesomely awesome to me *sniff sniff* that I have been disciplined enough, during this time in my life *fanning back tears* to write and share with ya'all for a whole stinkin' year! *SOB!* I have always had a passion for writing, *regaining composure* yet this passion was dormant until I realized blogging was the way to go! *wiping away snot with my arm*

Anyway...

Blogging is more than a fun little hobby for me, I have met incredible people, I have had great opportunities to be a part of fun collaborations with other bloggers, businesses, and giveaways, I have laughed a ton, even cried, AND I have learned a thing or ten about myself, the world, and HTML! The challenge of coming up with something interesting and relevant and/or funny in the area of parenting twice a week is good for my brain, and there is nothing like getting a comment from all you dear souls, telling me you can totally relate, or you just spit your morning coffee all over your keyboard due to hysterical laughter. Man, I love that.

So to celebrate, I am hosting a fantabulous giveaway for So Stinking Sweet on Esty. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shop, the soaps are beautiful, creative and wonderful!



You must check out her Etsy shop, she is currently offering some great deals, and considering that the holidays are fast approaching, this is THE way to go for gifts! And, here is your giveaway prize!



You have a chance to win a beautiful bar of Sparkling Mandarin Tangerine Shea Butter Soap AND the Outrageous Orange Lip Balm! YAY YAY YAY!

Happy Anniversary! Do you know I totally missed mine? D'OH!

I didn't have to look far on her site -- STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM SOAP! I love all that cute stuff, but I will use just about anything with 'strawberries & cream' in the description.

I tweeted -- www.twitter.com/baptistness. (I feel like I need to excuse myself after I say that.)

And if I'm not already a fan on Facebook, I shall be soon! You'll see!

Hey girl, congrats on the 122 followers..that is awesome!

Happy Bloggiversary!!!! I know exactly what you mean about meeting cool people and loving the comments they leave. I am a total comment whore too! ;-)

Man, those cupcake soap things are cool, but I think my favorite thing in her shop was the purple lilac dragonfly soap. Well, it was my favorite visually, but I think I would love to smell the cucumber melon and a couple other scents she has too.

To contact me, email me here bethbasilio@hotmail.com

Good luck with the contest! Looks like its a hit...I've only ever gotten 60 comments on a single post in my dreams! lol

Happy Blogoversary!

Jennifer said...

Ooooh! You're right! This is a great giveaway! :-) I went to her shop and she has such cute soaps! What's weird though, is the thing I want is her Coconut/Peach Lip Balm! Mmmm! It sounds like it's going to taste good! LOL! I want it! And I have been a follower for a while now! ;-)

Tamsin said...

Ok, so I bought something.... goldilocks shave soap. I just HAD to when I saw the name...and when you scroll down to the description which says: 'This is a dupe fragrance of Lushes Porridge', I mean, how could I not? Lushes Porridge? having been brought up on Porridge it made me all homesick. Not that porridge is exactly lusheous, well I suppose it...could be if you slathered it on yourslef. Probably good for the skin. I should try it. That'd give James a shock.....
My favourite item has to be the liquid crack lush shea butter. I mean, who doesn't need a bit of crack these days?

Abigail said...

My favorite item is the Party Pack Cupcakes Soap for sure!! It's so colorful and adorable!
