time for a giveaway!

**THIS GIVEAWAY HAS CLOSED**


I made this little goal in my head for when I'd hold the next giveaway here. When I reached 100 followers, or when my visit counter reached 20,000 hits. I wasn't sure which would come first, but...



It was my visits! I only installed the counter in November, so I've been getting an average of 4,000 hits per month! That's not bad for a little blog that does no advertising and basically it's just the inner workings of my machinations!

So I figured, this giveaway would come with a few prizes, a few ways to win, and a few ways to learn more about your nutty host here at Two Nuts in a Shell. This is how it's going to go down:

PRIZES:
Layla at Flowering Tree Botanicals on Etsy has been kind enough to let me offer some of her amazing bath bombs as part of the prize package!



You'll want some of these fabulous fizzy creations to help you relax after you've done all the hard work with your $50 Home Depot gift card.



WAYS TO WIN:
Leave a comment on this post, after you've visited Layla's shop, and tell me which scent of bath bombs you'd like--you're getting five (5) of them, so don't be afraid to wander outside your comfort zone!

If you're a follower, or become a follower, there will be a separate drawing for you, in which you'll be able to win some extra bath bombs and a $25 Home Depot gift card! That means if you happen to be the Grand Prize Winner and the Followers winner, you'll get $75 to Home Depot and a whole lot of fizzies!

BONUS:
Let get a little Q&A going on in here! I've never had an "ask anything" op on my blog, so now's the time! Leave them in the comments, e-mail them to me, just be polite. I am a lady, after all. And hey, if you have one about Jason too pass it along!

WHO'S ELIGIBLE:
U.S. Residents only.

CONTEST DATES:
The contest will run from today, Tuesday March 9 until Tuesday March 16, midnight Pacific Standard Time.

THE FINE PRINT:
One entry per person. The lovely and talented Random.org will be our judge and select the winner. Winner's choices are restricted to bath bombs only. Bath bomb preferences cannot be guaranteed due to ever changing stock. Prizes will be delivered via UPS and will be insured. A signature upon delivery will be required.

Good luck!

  1. amber,
    oohh...all the bath bombs look yummy. i am a natural kinda girl so the oatmeal,milk & honey speaks to me. I also like the hawaiian pineapple, and island mist. I know there are 5 choices but i like to keep things simple. ;)
    I also think those shower steam disks are awesome. I'd never heard of them but being that i mostly shower they peaked my interest,especially the trio w/eucalyptus peppermint...i know, i digress. Anyhoo, layla's shop is very nice and her photography props are perfect additions to her wares.

    Now my question is:
    What was your most memorable childhood event (vacation, trip, birthday, etc.)?

  15. Hi Amber! What a fun giveaway! Thanks! Please count me in. The toasted marshmallow sounds good enough to eat to me but with spring/summer on the way, I'd chose lavender or grapefruit. :) Thanks for the introduction to Layla's shop!

    Hmmm...question. How would you describe the style of your home and if you could live anywhere, where would it be?

    Congrats on the views AND reaching 100 followers! I'm 1 in 100! ;)

  18. underthebridge09 here! Thanks for posting ur blog giveaway over at D&R :) I'm glad you're giving the bath bombs away...they look so yummy. Toasted marshmallow? Totally unique and scrumptous, cookies and cream I'd have to give a shot too. Sounds weird in a bath, but heck I love the ice cream! Fig and Almond for sure. Zanzibar & Clove just because I like the word Zanzibar (and have no clue what the heck it is). I'd like to try one of each...

  26. All the scents sound great, but I normally go for clean smells so the Green Bamboo sounds nice. All the citrus & fruity ones do too!
    Thanks!

  29. I'm not sure how I happened upon your blog, but I've been reading for a little while now. What a great giveaway! I think I would try the oatmeal, milk, and honey bath bomb. Or the fresh peach. Or the brown sugar! They all look so good.
