Someone’s going to smell YUMMY…..

Update: November 26 – I’m going to leave this up for a few more days, so if you haven’t entered already, hop to it!
Here we are. Seven years of blogging, and 300 posts later. Please, if you look back at the early years of this blog, take what you read with a grain of salt. After all, when I started blogging I was 19, and highly disillusioned about a lot of things. My theology was whack at times, which I suppose would make for some good blogging fodder at a later date…maybe. What a road I’ve been walking, from a postmodern relativist to a (trying to be) missional calvinist. The Lord is good to me, and I praise Jesus for saving me.

Well friends, it’s time for me to share some love and give something away! I always get excited when bloggers give stuff away. Usually it’s the big name blogs, who get sponsored giveaways. This giveaway is on little old my blog, sponsored by little old me, but don’t be fooled – it’s going to be AWESOME!

What woman doesn’t love getting her feet pampered? I have yet to meet her.

So ladies, I’m giving this lovely pedicure set to one of you! In it you will find: glass stones and coconut oil for soaking your feet in a big tub of water, a homemade foot scrub, a foot file for scrubbing away all the rough skin, a bottle of No Miss Almost Natural Nail Polish Remover, and a bottle of nail polish – I’ve got two shades for you to choose from.

And those colours are: No Miss Ruskin Raspberry, or Suncoat Tangerine. The polish and polish remover are the experimental part of my gift to you, as I have not tried the No Miss stuff. I am using a different shade of Suncoat polish as this post is written…of course I am giving myself a pedicure. I have to make sure what I am giving away is good!

The star of the show is the homemade scrub. I’m sure we’ve all used products that we thought smelled good enough to eat, but would never dream of actually putting it in our mouth. This one, you can. I won’t judge you if you grab a spoon to have a snack while your feet soak. It’s made of coconut oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon. It smells (and tastes) divine.

So what do you need to do to enter? Leave a comment, but you have to make it more interesting than “Oh! Enter me!” It could be anything from your favourite colour to paint your nails and why, to why you like to read my blog – are there topics I write about that interest you, are there things you’d like to hear me talk more about? I make no promises, but suggestions are nice :) As an aside, if you don’t like reading my blog, don’t leave a comment…I digress… You could talk about why you like to blog, your favourite flower or something else random and interesting about you, or a favourite scripture passage that has encouraged you recently. Basically, anything but, “Oh! Enter me!”

Contest closes when I think a sufficient amount of people have entered. I don’t know how often people check back here since my writing is so sporadic, so when I think there’s been sufficient traffic on this post I’ll draw someone’s name out of a hat. I’m high-tech like that.

    I actually really hate feet. They are yucky and disgusting and I do not like to look at them. But what I really cannot stand is unpainted, unkempt toenails! I will refuse to even glance at my feet if my toenails are not painted. The sight of a bare toenail is just repulsive to me. SOOO, that is why I would just LOVEE if I ended up winning this package, because my feet have to be at their absolute prettiest for me to even be able to stand having them on my body (that, and the fact that they help me walk and such).

    Also, that home-made scrub sounds exquisite!! I’m glad you’re so creative and like doing things like this!!! ;)

    I like turquoise blue nails mostly because the very first time I got my nails done (which was only a little over 2 years ago) I got them done a turquoise color that glowed in the dark. I was very pregnant and when I would wake up and head to the bathroom yet again it always made me smile to spot my glowing toes. Always try new blues looking for another glow in the dark kind!

    I like your blog because you are so straight forward and I love it when you share things you are learning because I love to hear about how other people are growing in the faith, the whole TESTIFY SISTER thing I guess:)

    I love to blog because it is such a break for me. I feel like I am getting real brain time all to myself when I escape mommy duties long enough to type away.

    I adore coconut oil!

    300 posts! You amaze me, with this blog and your 365 photos! (not to mention looking after 3 children, house, husband etc) I like reading your blog because it always makes me think. Sometimes challenging and always entertaining.

    That’s how I feel when we get to visit (doesn’t happen too often anymore, but I always appreciate hearing your thoughts) Plus our children play so well together :)

    I think that pedicure set looks wonderful. Again, so creative (as usual) and something that every woman needs every now and then – time to refresh and look after herself.

    Love ya Kim:)

    I like to read your blog because you blog about things I am interested in … like natural childbirth and parenting type stuff. :) Always something good to think about in your posts.

    And … hmm … I don’t really paint my nails. In fact I don’t own any nail polish. So that would be a big treat for me! Maybe my husband would even like it too, who knows!

    I love reading your blog and looking at the pics of your gorgeous children! It makes me feel like i spent more than just 6 months with you travelling the globe. Often I’m reminded of the time we talked on table mountain, and this black and white picture jodi took of us, pops into my mind.
    Love you!

    kim, my favorite flowers (since you asked!) to grow in my garden right now are zinnias. i love all the different varieties and vibrant colors, and they are really great for cutting too. i buy a big packet of a variety of seeds and plant them all, lots and lots of them. mostly i love them because my grandma who has passed away used to always plant them beneath her kitchen window in the backyard and they remind me of her. she never bought seeds though – she just picked them out of the flowers that she had every fall once the flowers dried up a bit. so that is what i did this year and i am going to try planting the seeds i picked in the spring. i actually do this with marigolds every year and i love it. recycled flowers :)

    thanks for faithfully blogging. probably you deserve a prize instead of everyone else, but we’ll take it :)

    Today I’m going to mix myself some new coconut oil deodorant AND I’m going to try washing my face with oil. Looking forward to these natural care products, thanks for introducing me to the ideas, will let you know what I think. Would love to win your little care package you’ve put together : )

    Kim, you are a wonderful blogger! I really appreciate your creativity. Since you mentioned it – I glanced back to some of your first posts. You are always so transparent, thanks for sharing your heart (AND your awesome recipes!)
