De-stress and make yourself prettier

Category Contests

I am feeling just a wee bit stressed out these days. I want Calgon to take me away, but that’s probably not going to happen. (Possibly because my tub faucet is still sitting in boxes on top of my tub. Woe.)

But maybe you need a little stress-reducing pick-me-up. How about a little bit of spa comfort, right in the comfort of your own home? I have three aromatherapy masques from Montagne Jeunnesse here, and you know they’re fancy because, really, I don’t even know how to pronounce “Montagne Jeunesse.” But the flavors (flavors?) are Chocolate Masque, Self-Heating Fudge Sauna, and an Aromatherapy Masque containing lavender and cinnamon. If nothing else, you’ll probably smell good enough to eat. (Just to clarify: One winner will receive all three.)

Want to win ’em? First go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, February 35th, 2009 to enter for a chance to win. Seriously, read the rules first. Winner to be determined by random number generation believability of French accent.

Ready? Go!


  1. What a wonderful thing to win. I hope being first is lucky. I would like to win the Self-Heating Fudge Sauna or the Chocolate Masque. You are Wonderful, oh Sweet & Beautiful Mir!

  2. Mmm, those sound delicious. I was going to try to write that out phoenetically so you’d see what a stellar fake french accent I have, but I can’t figure out how to spell the “jeun” part phoenetically. So you’re just going to have to take my word for it.

  3. The chocolate masque would be great!

  4. My stress level is approaching maximum velocity. This would be great!

  5. Pour moi, s’il vous plait! (20 years since my last French class!)

  6. Puhllleeze? That could sound French, right?
