Why A 99 Follower Giveaway?

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 6/28/2010 05:32:00 PM
The blog is fast approaching 99 followers, so it is time for a giveaway.

Of course you are asking 'Why the number 99?'

Have you ever filled up the vehicle with gas, try to top it off to an even dollar amount, then it jumps right over that amount?  You're aiming for $25 but, right then, when you think you're there, it goes over and get have $25.07.  Grrr....

So, my new game is to not aim for the rounded off dollar but to get UNDER that rounded off amount.  Say I want $25, I'll stop it off at $24.87, or $24.92.  Not attempting to rounding off.  OK, it's weird but hey, I figure for all the times I have gone over, this will even things out.

So, that's why we are landing on 99 followers.  Sort of like 99 Red Balloons. I mean, couldn't they have blown up one more?  Did they get shorted 1 balloon from the 100 count bag?  How could the blow up any balloons and they'd fly?  They would have had to use helium, right?

Yes, there are lots of questions to be answered.  However, some of them you can answer and they will earn you entries into this quirky giveaway.  But, first to the goodies:
This is what we've got: a slim wallet with a 50 cent coupon on Finger Paints polish (this was a giveaway from Sally's on purchasing 2 or 3 polishes); Crabtree & Evelyn Distillations Aromatherapy collection: Comforting Body Night Cream with relaxing lavender and rosewood essential oils (yes, taken right off the jar!); the blog trademark of pink polish, Sally Hansen's 'Fuchsia Bling Bling' from the Diamond Strength collection; Crabtree & Evelyn Distillations Aromatherapy collection: Soothing Body Lotion with relaxing lavender and rosewood essential oils; a pretty pink lip gloss from Forever 21; Sally Hansen's Salon Hand Care, Two Step Renewal System for Hands; a sample of Lush's 'Honey, I Washed the Kids' soap; Crabtree and Evelyn Naturals: Nourishing Body Butter with Cocoa Butter, Nutmeg and Cardamom; Sally Hansen's Salon Hand Care: Moisturizing Creme for Dry Sensitive Skin; and finally, Wet 'n Wild's 'Mauve Frost' from the Wild Shine collection.
Phew!!!
Libby is here showing you the trademark pink nail polish given at all giveaways:
Please note: Libby is NOT part of the giveaway.  She is the cute model presenting the Sally Hensen 'Fucshia Bling Bling' polish. 



And here is one of those questions that you can answer...hey, it's going to give you an extra entry into the giveaway!!
 
What is the one beauty/makeup/cosmetic item that you are really, really lemming on?

Mine is this:  Clarisonic Cleansing System.

Heya Kimberly,

First off, fabulous giveaway, and the same thing happens to me with petrol. Except I'm a little ocd, so I can't seem to just stop on an uneven dollar amount. Hmmm, maybe that's their plan?
I am, of course, a follower of your blog. I am just about to put a link up in my giveaway bar (www.becsbeautybuzz.blogspot.com) and what I am lemming? Oh man, where to start? I think if i could have anything on my wish list, I would go for a Temtu Foundation Airbrushing system.
