LAST DAY TO ENTER DRAWING August 30th *** WINNERS ANNOUNCED ON THE FRONT PAGE OF TBCN by SEPT 3rd
I would like to go to a Spa treatment and the first thing I would want is rest! Then a massage.
My skin care program is pretty minimal, wash the face and put on lotion. For the most part over the years I have used a knock off (dollar store) brand of a name brand but sometimes I splurge and use a name brand cream esp the older I get, hoping to ease away some of the wrinkles LOL!
If I had a gift certificate that was a large enough amount to take my family on vacation I would take them all to Hawaii or maybe Israel. Not much for spending a lot of $$ on clothes and hair. I'm a clearance rack shopper!
As for a make over, how about a little liposuction (or a lot!). I have always wished I had my own personal hairdresser. Someone who could do my hair everyday.
Thank you for sharing your book and here's hoping I am a winner.
Travel has always been my biggest indulgence. I'd much rather spend money on a trip than on a new wardrobe!
#3 I'd like to have a perm done and I'd like to have an ipad.
#4 I've always wanted a make-over but never had.
I read the intro of Beauty to Die for can't wait to get a copy. Good Luck everyone.
I would like to try a spa day, I have never been to a spa so it might be fun, but at the same time nervous for me as I don't really like people touching me. I would have to try the massage.
I'd get a haircut and some clothes. With my job, I have to keep it up so I tend to let it go a long time between cuts. My job also calls for a boring wardrobe, so that could use some help also!
I hear you with the work wardrobe. My job calls for two extremes, the shorts and sweatpants I wear at home when I write, and the really fancy, flashy stuff I wear when I do appearances. What I lack is all of that stuff in the middle--the nice slacks, blouses, etc., that a person with an office job would own by the dozens. If I didn't go to church, I wouldn't have any "regular" nice clothes at all. :)
Question 3. Knowing me, if I were given a gift certificate, I would spend it on my family. BUT ... to play by the rules and answer the question as if the gift had to be spent on myself, I would buy clothes. My job was downsized 3 years ago, and I never was able to find another one. Then, there were family situations that needed caregiving, so I am now "working for my family"! I very seldom buy new clothes for myself since I don't work outside our home. It's a matter of want vs. need. I have what I need! I am truly blessed! Thank you for the opportunity to win a new book (I get used ones now!). I share my books with my 91-year-old mother-in-law and church friends. God bless!
I have a skin care program through the Mary Kay Timewise products. It's the only product I've found that works for my skin no matter where I am.
I do not follow a skin care program. I have never worn make up except mascara and eye liner. I was a working mother and single. I didn't have the money for makeup and it became not important.
Oh, I've had a makeover. LOL! When I was in my 20s, I would often change my clothing style at least once a year, if not each season! However, my most memorable makeover was when I went with a completely different haircut and color. Oh, it DID. NOT. TURN. OUT. I had RED hair with WHITE BLONDE hair at my crown. I thought I could get used to it and be "funky" enough to carry it, but...I ended back up at the salon later that afternoon. It was horrendous!
Having said that, I would never shy away from a makeover!!! I love them and think they're refreshing and fun! I would love to have my hair and wardrobe made over, of course. I couldn't tell you what I'd want done, though I think I'd love more expensive clothes that would last longer (through more fashion seasons than just one or two) so I wouldn't "have" to have as many clothes. :) (I also admit to an addiction to handbags...designer handbags, much to my hubby's dismay. So throw in a new Kate Spade bag that I've been eyeballing, and I'll be good!)
Haha, you should read my book with Leslie Gould, The Amish Midwife. Our main character has a thing for designer handbags too. :)
I would buy a whole new wardrobe. I am now on Weight Watchers and have lost over 60 pounds. I need new clothes and money is kind of tight. So if someone wants to give me money I will definitely buy new clothes with it then probably get my hair cut.
