500 is in the House, with a Giveaway!

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.  Be on the lookout for giveaways in the future!!! 

As I mentioned in the very last paragraphs of my last post, I am now officially a blogger who has written 500 freaking posts.  Now, I know that some of you super-bloggers probably get to 500 in a half a year, but the way my posts are (all wordy and talky, blah, blah, blah), I would have to be sitting at my computer typing for half my day to get to 500 in a half a year. ;)  (Or just get really really good at typing, a la Mavis Beacon teaches typing!)

So what am I doing to celebrate #500?

Well, let's back up (told you I was wordy)...

I forgot that my blog-o-versary was on January 15.  Oops.  I can't believe I forgot my third child's second birthday (ha, you bloggers out there will get the reference to my blog as one my children).  So I was all, well, shoot, I should probably have a giveaway.  And then I looked at my posting statistics.  At that point, and this isn't because I am lazy--okay maybe a tiny bit lazy, I decided to hold off so I could have an super-freaking-awesome MONTH of giveaways to honor the second birthday AND the 500th post! 

So, guess what.  500 may be in the house, but this is only #1 of 3 separate giveaways slated to come every Monday starting tonight and ending with the last Monday in February.  The next two giveaways are not going to be published yet, but they are things I know my blog audience will want.

Tonight's blog giveaway is truly from me.  I have been thinking about how I wanted to give something to you all that I personally created, worked hard for, and feel that you would know was directly from me as a way of saying "thank you!"

So here goes:
Celebrate the My Superfluities Two-Year Blog-o-Versary AND 500th Post by entering the First Giveaway (February 7th) to win an Arbonne Delights Gift Bag!

The bag includes (above):
• A gift certificate to be used on any one product up to $50 (see my Arbonne website--or use the bling-y button at the right hand side of my blog--to pick your favorite!);

This Gift Bag has a value of over $100!

This gift bag took some thought and planning.  I knew I wanted it to be worth a bit (hello, $50 gift certificate), but I also wanted to make sure that the best of the best from Arbonne was represented in this giveaway.  I think, finally, after all the planning, I came to the best first giveaway I could.  :)

Here they are...all packed nice and neat in a re-usable tote bag.  I have this type of bag in my bathroom and it currently holds all of my RE9 Advanced products and my makeup.

All closed up, ready to be shipped to one of my lucky readers!
