The Body Shop Lemonade Giveaway Winner!

April 13, 2010
It’s that time again – time to announce our Body Shop Lemonade Giveaway winner that is!  So without further ado (considering that I’m two days late on this) here she is – Stormie of Bite Size Baker!!!  Stormie will be receiving the Sweet Lemon Body Butter, Sweet Lemon Lip Butter, Sweet Lemon Whip Body Lotion, Sweet Lemon Shower Gel and Sweet Lemon Body Scrub – so much lemony goodness in one package :).  
Thanks again to The Body Shop for sponsoring such a generous giveaway, and for those of you who didn’t win this time around, don’t despair as I have several more amazing giveaways that’ll be posted throughout the next two weeks in celebration of ABS’ two year anniversary!

Giveaway: The Body Shop LemonAid Collection

April 6, 2010

To celebrate this wonderfully balmy weather we’ve been having (at least today), ABS will be giving away a complete set of The Body Shop’s LemonAid collection – a great line that refreshed body & soul!  This campaign has enabled The Body Shop to donate $15,000.00 to EPCAT-USA and The Somaly Mam Foundation to help stop sex trafficking.  So how did they do it?  Well people simply had to:

  1. Fan The Body Shop USA on Facebook = $2 donation
  2. Follow us on Twitter = $2 donation
  3. Use the hashtag #LemonAid on Twitter = $.50 donation
  4. Enter the sweepstakes to win a Sweet Lemon gift pack by entering your email = $1 donation
  5. Visit the “Squeeze Me!” widget and either squeeze a lemon or install the widget below. Every lemon squeeze = $.50 and each widget install = $1 donation

While the campaign has now ended, I’d say fan The Body Shop USA on Facebook and follow them on Twitter anyway for all the good that they’ve done!  And of course, enter to win your very own LemonAid Collection – check out the deets after the jump!

The giveaway package is comprised of:

  • Sweet Lemon Body Butter
  • Sweet Lemon Lip Butter
  • Sweet Lemon Whip Body Lotion
  • Sweet Lemon Shower Gel
  • Sweet Lemon Body Scrub

To enter just leave me a comment down below – the winner will be chosen at random.  Giveaway open to U.S. residents only (sorry!) and ends midnight E.S.T. April 10th.  Good luck!

This fantastic giveaway is sponsored by the wonderful people over at The Body Shop – while I do try to buy most of the products I giveaway myself, it gets rather expensive so I always appreciate PR companies offering fun giveaway opportunities for my readers!  If you have any questions regarding the foregoing, please feel free to contact me at

Sneak Peek at the Upcoming ABS Giveaway (It’s a Doozy)!

January 7, 2010

To celebrate the upcoming (I hope – honestly just haven’t been able to find the time) launch of the ABS forum (yay!)

I picked up a few products I love, some I’ve been wanting to try and some I just knew you’d all want. And while the giveaway itself won’t be up for another few weeks, I figured you’d all enjoy getting a peek at what’s coming! Check out the giveaway revealed in all its non-blurry glory after the jump =P.

I hope this post has got you at least semi-excited for what’s to come, and I hope that when the forum launches you’ll all take a little time from your busy schedules to pop by and say hello!

To keep track of the whopping 527 entries into the ABS 1000th Post Stila Loves Barbie Palette & L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara giveaway, I put together a spreadsheet, learned how to randomize in Excel, and basically decided to go the whole nine yards. It was time-consuming, tedious, and to be honest somewhat miserable, but we’ve got ourselves a winner!

Congrats Ana darling! You totally deserve this and I was so pleased to see your name pop up at the top of my Excel spreadsheet. I’ll be in touch regarding your winnings!

The results for this MAC Graphic Garden Palette Giveaway are long overdue, but better late than never right? 🙂 I just couldn’t resist taking a vacation from everything and everybody this Labor Day weekend.
