A Valentine's Day Giveaway Full of Hugs and Loves that are So Stinking Sweet You'll Want to Scream!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

Ohhhhhhhhh joy! It's February and luuuuuuuuv is in the air! Actually, the smell of chocolate is in the air, and it is taking everything I have within me to NOT buy those heart-shaped boxes full of chocolates at Rite Aid, and walk right outside those automatic doors, and swallow all 40 of them whole, tossing the box in the garbage can next to me. Especially when they are 50% off.

Anyway...

What better gift is there to give yourself (or someone else who is addicted to 50% off Rite Aid chocolates) then, if you're desperately trying to hold to your New Year's Resolution of no longer inhaling chocolates (boooo!) than SOAP! And not just any soap...

So Stinking Sweet on Etsy has graciously agreed to again hold a giveaway on my lil' blog! Her soaps are, well, SO Stinking SWEET! I love them!


Just look at those wonderful concoctions of cleanliness! Click on them and learn about all of her soaps!! Soaps made with the highest quality ingredients, including goats milk, and even vegan soap! Soap for everyone!! And she has body souffles and lip balms and perfumes and and and and YAY!!!!!!!!

Aren't you just rolling in dirt right now, getting all filthy, anxiously waiting to see what you get to wash off with if you win? Well, here it is!

OH YUM! The prize is a pair of Juicy Baby Ruby Red Grapefruit Valentine Heart Conversation Shea Butter Soaps! Say that 10 times fast!

And, not only is this soap as sweet as can be, it has BODY SAFE GLITTER in it, so you're all smelly good and sparkly pretty too! Gotta love the sparkly!

So let's get to it ya'll, here's how to enter and win you some Valentine's sweetness...

Mandatory entry:

-Visit So Stinking Sweet on Etsy and come back here, commenting with a link of your favorite item. (worth one entry)

The following are additional entries. Please leave each entry IN SEPARATE COMMENTS. Sorry for yelling, just want to be clear:

-Tell me your best (or worst) Valentine's Day gift ever (worth 1 entry).

-Tweet this giveaway! You can do this once per day until the end of the giveaway, leaving me a daily comment with the daily tweet link (worth 1 entry, per tweet, per day).

-Blog about this giveaway, come back here leaving me a comment with the link (worth 5 entries!)..

This giveaway runs February 1st-10th, 2010. The winner will be selected via the Random Number Generator (RNG) on 2/10 at 12pm, EST. The winner has 2 days to contact me, and in the event that the winner is hiding in a corner, eating chocolates and therefor misses my e-mail, I will have the RGN choose a new winner. A great prize in your hot and chocolate-smudged hands before V-day! Woot!

AND check out my side bar for two other luscious giveaways happening at this very moment over at Sounds Like Tomatoes and Much More Than Mommy! You plan this right, you won't have to buy ANYTHING at all for Valentine's Day! WOOOOOT!

My best Valentine's Day would have to be last year. Money was tight, so my hubby made me chocolate covered strawberries (which I love). It was a very sweet and thoughtful gift!

Woah. That's some artistic looking soap. My favorite would probably be ... the Sweet Pea. That would just look so pretty next to the sink.

My worst "gift", by far, was from my sister. She tore up the card I had given her, stuck the pieces in an envelope, and returned it to me. I remember crying the rest of the afternoon ... definitely the worst thing ever.

Amber said...

Wost Valentines Day ever? Well, pretty much all of them because I've NEVER been given a Valentine by a dude. My husband refuses to celebrate but he does make up for it with wacky President's Day gifts... so it's okay with me. I celebrate Valentine's Day with my girlfriends.

I love the Liquid Crack soap- it sounds like it smells great and I love stars! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39480233

My worst V-day was last year when I had to work until 3am (I work in a restaurant) and we ran out of ice, glasses and the computers broke in the middle of the CRAZY busy shift! I cried and didn't even get to spend the night with my boyfriend because he was asleep by the time I finally got home and I felt bad waking him.

Thanks for the giveaway :)

UGH... my WORST V-Day gift is when my Ex BF gave me the TACKIEST gold heart necklace. So not my style, and so not original. Nothing like a wake up call that you do not belong together on the most romantic day of the year....
