A Very Murry Christman Giveaway Day!

I was about 4 hours into my Christman shopping trip when I stumbled into Bath & Body Works at the South Towne Mall trying not to knock over any displays with my hoard of gifts I had previously purchased when I was suddenly overcome by an overwhelming sense of euphoria.

This Japanese Cherry Blossom was thrust into my face by a smiling sales associate and followed by a Bath & Body Works shopping basket shoved into my one spare hand, well one spare pinkie that is.

But I didn't care, the smell was wonderful! It wasn't until after this experience that I realized they had drugged me. They put some sort of magic drug or potion in that bottle of lotion that made me shop. So I shopped, and I shopped and I filled my basket with all sorts of yummy smelling goodies.

Upon checking out however, I was rewarded for all my hard work at buying out the whole store and given a free gift!




Hmmm. I thought to myself, what am I going to do with this free gift? When it dawned on me,

Hey, dumb ass!

You can give it away on your blog! So that's what I'm doing! So one lucky person will be rewarded for my drug induced shopping spree at Bath & Body!

And that's not all....you will also receive a surprise gift! Just because I feel that surprises are what Christman is all about!

So here is how you enter:

1. Leave a comment on this blog post for your first entry.

2. Link the contest to your blog for two more entries. And let me know by commenting again.

3. Follow me for three extra entries and also leave a comment telling me that you did so! (You can follow me through the link on my side bar)

Anyone can enter, if you don't have a blogger or google account, please leave me your email address.

Contest ends on Monday so good luck!

And one final thing, this prize does contain the Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion so I'm telling you right now that I am not responsible for any binge shopping this product may cause.



You have been warned.

This is why you should never EVER go shopping alone, particularly during Christmas. And if you need to shop alone, wear a gas mask, fo Pete's sake. And...if all you have left is a pinkie with which to shop, it's time to go to the car.

Kika said...

This is one of my fvorite scents

Jaci said...

Wow! That is a great prize. I agree with you--the Japanese Cherry Blossom is HEAVEN.

I found you through Infertile Myrtle. :)
