New wins!!

I'm so grateful for all of you bloggers offering giveaways!

If you have recently discovered giveaways  and love them as much as I do, check out the listing of my favorite giveaway sites.  They are listed on the sidebar of this blog!  The list grows daily.

One of the reasons I started this blog is to show appreciation to those host blogs and sponsors who go through all the trouble of putting these giveaways together . . . it is a lot of work!  

A huge thank you to all of you . . . 
you are awesome!

Another reason . . . to help support these bloggers by letting others know that people do win these giveaways!

Here are some recent wins:

I have been trying to win the many items that Tropical Traditions has sponsored for giveaways.  This week I was the lucky winner of a quart of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil.  

I can't wait to try it out as a healthier alternative since I love to stir fry and pan fry in my cooking.  It is also used in baking or as a spread (like butter).

Thank you to Marilyn for hosting this giveaway . . . I am looking forward to receiving my prize!

I have a weakness for health and beauty items . . . especially cosmetics . . . and I enter just about every one of these type of giveaways.  It is stuff I usually purchase anyway or I get a treat and try new products for free.  

Free is a good thing!

I was thrilled to get the email from Carol at Retail Therapy Lounge announcing that I was one of the winners in her giveaway sponsored by Ancient Stones for mineral makeup and fixative.  Woohoo . . . I was almost out of my mineral makeup and look forward to trying a new brand!

The irony of this giveaway is that I found it just as it was ready to close and I almost didn't enter cause I thought I didn't have enough time.

Win the Smartfish Ergo Motion Mouse!

Since I just about live on my computer and have had problems with my right hand, this is a giveaway that I REALLY want to win!!  It is actually a purchase that I have been wanting to make, but can't realistically afford at this time.  What a treat that would be!

The Smartfish Ergo Motion Mouse features a patented pivot base that for the first time allows the mouse to move with your natural hand and wrist positions, adapting to your unique movements while you work. The mouse will rock, swivel or pivot with your movement so your hand and wrist are never in a fixed position. This creates a far more comfortable and healthy mousing experience than what you can actually get from a traditional mouse or the touch pad in your laptop. 

Want a chance to win this awesome mouse?  Click on the button to go to Jen's giveaway at Born 2 Impress . . .

Long Hair Lovers Organic Hair Growth System Giveaway

One lucky winner will receive your own 4-Product Hair Growth System! (RV $99)

For as long as I can remember, I've had long hair.  Since long hair needs extra care, I'm always looking for new products specifically made for long hair.

What sets Long Hair Lovers apart is that its products are developed by a professional trichologist (hair and scalp expert), and they also use natural/organic ingredients.  Their products are healthier for your hair because they are free of sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, silicones, perfumes, and dyes.

 Almost every commercial shampoo on the mass market contains sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), which many claim is such a harsh detergent that it corrodes the hair follicle and impairs the ability to grow hair.

This giveaway is being hosted by Rachel's Reviews and Giveaways.
