Ask and ye shall receive

Don't forget about the giveaway!

Have I mentioned how lucky I am? And what amazing blog readers I have?

All last week I was on vacation to see family up in Michigan. It was a lovely trip, filled with days at the beach, games, and more food than I think I've ever eaten before. I'm not kidding. My daily menu looked about like this:

Breakfast: apple pie
Lunch: veggie pasta salad sandwich (yup, pasta on a sandwich, ONLY ON VACATION) and apple pie
Dinner: veggie pasta salad sandwich and apple pie
Dessert: chocolate cake

I really have no idea why none of my clothes fit me anymore.

ANYWAYS. I came home late last night to something on my doorstep that made me absolutely squeal with joy (and no, it wasn't George Clooney. I'm still waiting for him to show up *sigh*).

It was, however, a box filled with homemade soaps and lotion from one of my blog readers, Shavahn (who doesn't have a blog or twitter or I'd link to it)! She read my post about being concerned with what's in my cosmetics and soaps and shampoos, and offered to send me some of her own homemade items. I cannot tell you how excited I was to get that comment!

So I eagerly opened the box and was immediately greeted with a medley of AMAZING smells--mocha, blackberry-apple, ginger snap and more. The soaps are awesome and the lotion is just incredible! Seriously, I'm on cloud nine right now. Shavahn, you are the best!!! Thank you!



Note: Shavahn occasionally sells her homemade products. If you're interested, e-mail me and I'll put you in touch with her!

You've gotten me all excited too! Write a Review about them once you use them... They look so pretty!

Jes--They are so pretty! My crummy cell phone didn't capture their true colors. And I haven't used the soaps yet, but I put on some of the lotion already, and it is THE BEST. My hands are so smooth!

Sounds like a lovely menu Nanny. No cherries?

What a nice little package!

The Nanny said...

Haha OH YES, cherries. CHOCOLATE-COVERED cherries. :)

Glad that you like the lotion!! Let me know how you like everything else. My favorite is the blackberry apple...

Hmmmm...how are you finding these blog readers who randomly want to send you stuff? They are not coming to my blog :) Anyway, you should definitely review them after you've used them a while. They look very cool!

What a neat thing for Shavahn to do! I too would love to hear about her products.
