This One’s for the Girls Giveaway!

With Mother’s Day just two weeks away, I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway that’s totally girly. How about a $15 gift card to Bath & Body Works? Can’t get much more girly than that, huh? :)

To enter the “This One’s for the Girls Giveaway,” leave a comment on this post by noon (CST) on May 13th (Mother’s Day) to be included in the drawing. If I don’t know you personally or can’t contact you via your own blog, you must include your email address in your comment to be eligible for the giveaway.

Any comment will work, but to make it a little more fun, why not fill us in on your very favorite Bath and Body products (or similar products from different stores).

As for me, I like to splurge on bubble bath. I enjoy the ones with a light fragrance the most. My current faves are Moonlight Path, Black Raspberry Vanilla, and Sea Island Cotton. I also love having sweet-smelling antibacterial hand soaps stationed at my sinks. I recently tried the new Fresh Picked Strawberries scent, and it’s definitely a winner.

Another of my favorite products is for totally practical reasons. C.O. Bigelow’s Chapped Hands Remedy has become a must-have for me because it works. It’s one of the only things I’ve found to keep my hands from getting painfully chapped in the winter. It’s a little pricey for a small tube, but I use it only at bedtime—and that’s enough. It works and is well worth the price. I stock up when I have a coupon or when it’s on sale.

I look forward to hearing about your favorite pampering products. Any other bubble bath lovers out there? :)

If you don’t have time for a nice long bubble bath, how about a short soak in the Word of God? Our souls need attention, too, don’t they? Even a few minutes spent reading words from the Author of Life will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to march into the challenges of the day. And this works for both girls and guys! :)

How about it? Let’s enjoy refreshment from the Word every day!

“Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”‘” Matthew 4:4

  1. I love bubble baths! and many times
    I spend that time praying. My favorite Bath& Body scents are cool cucumber, moonlight path, and anything citrus.

  2. You needn’t enter me in the drawing, Cheryl, as I just stocked up at Bath & Body last week. I love that place! My fav scents run in the citrus line, with all things lime topping the list.

    I also enjoy the refreshments of God’s word & ways.


  3. White Tea and Ginger, Night Blooming Jasmine, and Cotton Blossom in Body Splash and the hand soaps are my favorites, hands down! Enjoying your blog Cheryl, as well as seeing the family from afar!

    In Him,

  4. Japanese Cherry Blossom is my favorite springtime fragrance. I always get compliments when I use that. Makes me feel so refreshed, also God’s Word every day refreshes our soul. Keeps us on the right track, if we only listen.

  5. I love B&BW! My favorite “splurge” from there is Vanilla Bean Noel anything. Since you can only get it during the holidays I stock up when I can. About four years ago I bought wall flowers for my whole house and put the creamy nutmeg scent in them. It’s so divine I have never tried another scent. I wish they offered it in a perfume or lotion!

  6. Cheryl – I was going to reply that I like their kitchen gadget section, when I realized I had the wrong “bath” shop in my head. I was mixing up “Bed, Bath & Beyond” with “Bath & Body Works”. Just shows how little I indulge in retail therapy. I do love Bath & Body Works though. Their moonlight path body spray is heavenly. Thanks for this lovely Mother’s Day giveaway.

  7. Japanese Cherry Blossom is my favorite fragrance.I use the shower gel, body cream lotion, body mist and there perfume. I like their hand soaps along with their candles in the leaves and Winter fragrance.

  8. Mairead, my husband Shawn has always said this store should be called Bed, Bath, Body and Beyond :)

    I like honeysuckle and peony and moonlight path.

  9. I am a fan of the scented candles at that store as well as the shower sprays. :0) Just writing about it makes me want to go pamper myself. :0)

  10. I haven’t gotten anything from there in SO long! I do love the Sweet Pea scent….and lately I am into lavender.

  11. Vanilla and Honey, thanks so much for visiting my blog — I love to hear from new folks! Fyi, since I don’t know you personally and since there is no contact info on your blog, you must leave your email address in a comment here in order to be eligible for the giveaway. Hope you see this so you can enter again!

  12. I like Coconut Lime Verbena scent!

  13. I love their Wallflowers :)

  14. Love B&B, but I especially love their anti-bacterial hand soap. Can’t live without it. Well, actually, I can, but I’d sure hate to.


  15. I like Bath and Body hand soaps. I buy spring fragrances in the spring and summer and then transition over to fall and winter fragrances the last half of the year. I use their cinnamon/sugar “flavor” to fill my pumpkin soap dispensers in the fall. Love it all:)

  16. Leslie-Ann says
