I think Marathon Monday may be my new favorite day of the year. I seriously couldn’t pull myself away from my computer – watching those elite athletes is so inspiring. I can’t even fathom running a 4:45 minute mile for ONE MILE, let alone 26.2 miles!
And for Ryan Hall to run the fastest marathon an American has ever run and still come in 4th is ca-razy! The whole thing just blows my mind. I still can’t get over it. If you happen to live under a rock and not catch the race or the results, you can check them out here.
A HUGE CONGRATS GOES TO MY BLOG BUDDIES, MOLLY AND JOANNE, WHO BOTH RAN BOSTON ON MONDAY AND DID FANTASTIC!
But enough about Boston because I could seriously go on and on and on (and on and on)…..
TODAY IS MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!
Poppy Louise Sugar Scrubs
A dear friend of mine makes these lovely sugar scrubs and graciously offered to let me give some away on my blog.
According to Nancy:
These sugar scrubs are your connection to healthy, glowing skin with the benefits of aromatherapy. Using a body sugar scrub can help you achieve smooth skin by stimulating cell turnover. In addition to benefitting your skin, the scents activate your senses to calm, relax, stimulate – any desired effect depending on the scent you choose!
Sometimes cleansing the skin with soap is just not enough to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, an astringent to keep the skin’s pH balance level, and moisturizer is needed as well. That’s where Poppy Louise sugar scrub takes care of you. Because we use only the finest ingredients, the grape seed oil provides these benefits and more. Over repeated use you will see the benefits that grape seed oil brings to your skin: smoother, silkier, and softer to the touch.
I’ve experienced first hand how fantastic these scrubs are (Nancy was super sweet to bring me one after she came to one of my classes at the gym) – they really do leave your skin silky smooth. I remember the first time I used mine – I couldn’t stop rubbing my arms – they never felt so soft!! It’s pretty amazing. And now I use them all the time.
My favorite part is that since Poppy Louise sugar scrubs are all natural, there are no harsh side effects. Which means you can use the scrubs on all skin types – oily, dry, combination or mature skin!
There are 3 jars available so I’ll have 3 winners. Just leave me a comment letting me know which scent you’d choose:
- Ed Hardy (just like the fragrance!)
