Awesome Giveaway! Gifts for You OR a Special Lady in Your Life!



Looking to pamper the lady you love . . . or yourself? With this giveaway you could do a little of both!

KMR Communications, Inc. contacted me about giving one fabulous reader all of these great gifts, and I jumped at the chance.

The thrifty side of me thought, “Oh yay, holiday gifts for women I love!” But the selfish side of me thought about how much I would love to win the body serum!

So what can you win for a friend/sister/lover/daughter/mother or yourself? A makeover from head to toe!

Grab a cup of java; this could take a while!


Take Her to the Bar . . . for Better Abs!

 Joey Decker, a dancer and owner of the Burbank, CA Bar Method Studio, guides you through exercises that will elongate muscles, firm and tone the jigglies, and help you get strong, fit abs, narrow thighs . . . and it takes just thirty-seven minutes! I don’t know about you, but I could use this workout!


The Bangles . . . on her Wrist . . .





Want to be bejeweled? What girl doesn’t? The lucky winner will receive two bangle bracelets similar to the one show above from Bombay Fashions, one of the largest online retailers for fashion jewelry.

    I spoil myself by finding time to workout and of course, the occasional shopping trips for myself instead of the kiddos! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
