Giveaway and Pedicure Party Reminder

photo from googleimages.com

So how are your toes?  No, not the backside!  The fronts..the pretty nails!  Have you given yourself a pedicure or gone to the salon and had a pampering 30 minutes yet?  Well, you have a whole week left to get that done. Make your piggies pretty and join a fun little pedicure party right here next Monday  the 26th.  And there's going to be a giveaway!


One lucky person will receive everything in the photo above.
This gift includes:
  1. An eight piece nail kit which includes a nail brush, fingernail clipper, nail scissors, cuticle pusher, cuticle nipper, salon board, 4-step buffing board and toenail clipper.  A clear, wipe-clean case keeps everything neat and is great for traveling.
  2. A three piece French Tip pen kit for a professional looking white tipped mani and pedi.
  3. A package of nail art sheets that includes over 100 nail stickers.  Jewels, initials, hearts, butterflies and flowers, just to name a few.
  4. A bottle of foaming hand wash, specially formulated to nourish your hands and cuticles.
  5. A bottle of Avojuice hydrating hand lotion.



To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is take a photo of your pedicure and post it to your blog on Monday the 26th.  Come here and link to Mr Linky that day so we can come and see your pretty toes and visit your blog.  The giveaway will be selected randomly from all participants and announced on Tuesday morning.  Everyone has an equal chance of winning...no extra entries for following, liking, facebooking, etc.  Just post your toes next Monday and link here so we can visit you.  And yes, I will ship world-wide. :)

Mother/daughter entries would be fun!  And yes, men are invited.  I think there are a couple of cats already planning to link up!  That should be interesting. ha.

Now, I need to get busy on my own pedicure!
Mine will be home-done this time, even though I do have a gift card for a professional one.  I'm saving that for another time.  But I might try something fun like a sticker or two.
Can't wait to see you here next Monday! 

Original Invitation Post is HERE.

    1. Well, making them pretty IS the idea! ha.

      So Orlin wants to join in and asked for nail polish? I'm guessing black, right? Or silver?

      Delete
    2. Better be silver. Black would just blend in with the rest of him!

      Delete
    3. would love to see a photo of you painting them for him. lol.

      Delete
    4. You just want another photo of me, you sneak!

      Delete
    5. I too would enjoy a picture of you meticulously painting Orlin's nails. :)

      Delete
    6. Rebecca, you're not gonna see another photo of me as long as you expect all of us to believe that YOU look like a bunch of pink flowers!

      Delete
    7. good point, Silver. lol.

      Delete
    8. Well, I'm sweet like flowers. :)

      The problem with pictures of me is that I have a mental image of myself and when I see a photo it blows that image out of the water. :)

      Delete
    9. Am I to understand that if I post a picture of myself you would too?

      Delete
    10. @Betsy: So, you agree?

      @Rebecca: You're on.

      Delete
    11. Oooh, I like a challenge. :)

      Delete
    12. You do, huh? Good. I'll be waiting impa-- I mean, patiently.

      Delete
    13. You're working on that virtue huh? Patience I mean.

      Did you ever hear the ditty

      "Patience is a virtue--possess it if you can"

      Delete
    14. Yes, patience is a virtue... but I never claimed to be virtuous! Haha.

      Delete
    15. To tell you the truth I'm not very patient either. I tend to want everything five minutes ago. :)

      Delete
    16. Glad to amuse you Christine. :)

      Delete
    17. So Silver and Rebecca...when do we get to see your new Avatars? :)

      Delete
    18. I'm betting Rebecca chickens out. Me, on the other hand...

      Delete
    19. I have to dig out a graduation picture of myself, and scan it into my computer. :) hee hee

      Delete
    20. haha...no old photos Rebecca..look! Silver beat you to it!

      Delete

      Delete
    23. Oh fine!! But you'll have to wait till tomorrow. Nice photo Silver by the way. You have nice eyes, and Orson has a cute litte kitty face.

      Delete
    27. Yeah, we'll have to ask him to keep it for a while! :)

      Delete
    28. I like that one a lot! Much better than scary Santa, or Cupid. :)

      Delete
    29. Hey, Rebecca, you did it! Cool!

      Delete
    30. Hey...look at you, Rebecca! Wow...it's great to see your face, gorgeous. :) Now we know who we're talking to! ha.

      Delete
    31. It took me all morning to figure out how. :(

      Delete
    32. yes, but you did figure it out...and now you know! You'll be changing them all the time like the rest of us! haha. I put instructions on one of my posts for Gloria when she changed to the replies. I'll try to find them for you.

      Delete
    33. The problem is---I tried so many different things that now I'm not sure how I did it. I was interrupted about 20 times while I was trying. I dressed five munchkins, and changed about six diapers, and poured some coffee, and started some laundry............you know the usual morning routine. :)

      Delete
    34. haha...I've done that before. Next time just click on your profile on your sidebar and you'll see the buttons to push. :)
      Sounds like the morning is off and running there! :)

      Delete
    35. Um, yes, half of them are hyper, and the other half are weepy. I do not like Mondays. Maybe I could come over to your house and sit in the corner and take a nap?

      Delete
    36. Sure...come on over. I'll serve you coffee and lunch. The vacuum might keep you awake, though. ha.

      Delete
    37. I doubt it! A vacuum cleaner has no comparison to the noise level in my house. :)

      Things are settling down now. :)

      Delete
    38. the only sound here right now is the dryer...and Whiskers batting a ball around that has a little bell in it. :) The bus comes at 3:20 bringing my three big noise-makers. ha. Until then I'll enjoy the quiet!

      Delete
    4. Do you have a recipe with the words toes or fingers in it? Pigs in a Blanket? lol.

      Delete
    5. Gloria that is awful that someone is duplicating your blog! You should put a note on your sidebar with her link and explain that it is not you. And do one of those copyright things that you see around...Pat has one at the very bottom of his sidebar.

      Delete
    6. love the sidebar idea hope to can make lol

      Delete
    7. yes, you should do it! Then everyone will know. And she will see it, too, and maybe it will make her stop. That's a terrible thing she is doing!

    4. No zombie foot, or I might hurl,
      It makes my very stomach curl
      To see that foot in all its glory
      Makes me want to tell a story
      About a magical place and time
      Where no foot like that would climb
