300's Contest!

So, I am on vacation (smiles), which means no blogging for a whole week (frowns).

But I've figured a way to ease the pain. I'm going to have a contest now that I've made it to over 300 followers!

I have three lovely gifts to give out:

A set of three gorgeously scented, French-milled soaps from L'Occitane.



A ceramic version of the ubiquitous paper coffee cup found in every New York City coffee shop and corner stand.


And last but not least, a $15 Barnes and Noble gift card to buy a little late summer reading!

Hooray!

To enter, you must be a follower and leave a comment.
Feel free to win extra entries:
+1 for posting on a blog sidebar
+2 for Tweeting
+3 for blogging about it!

Winners will be chosen by random draw and announced on Monday, August 23rd.

See you then, and have a lovely week!

I'm on the no contest bandwagon for awhile, so no need to enter me. I just wanted to congratulate you on being so close to 400 followers!

You're already way over 300 Lydia, but your blog is pretty awesome so that's really no surprise! Congrats.

This is one of my favorite blogs, and one of the most useful blogs I've found! I have some friends who are doctors, but asking them the questions that you answer might get on their nerves pretty quickly.

Thanks for everything you do!
