Day 1: 30 Days of Thanksgiving Giveaway


November 1, 2013~Today I am thankful for the kind and generous people I have had the pleasure of knowing through my blog, and for all of you who take a little time out of your busy days to visit me here, and read what I write!


Today kicks off my 30 Days of Thanksgiving series! This is something I've had in the back of my mind for quite some time, and I think it will be a nice way for us to give thanks each day for something in our lives, no matter how big or small. With the holidays quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to do this, don't you agree? We sometimes tend to take people and things for granted, not realizing just how much better they make our lives. Grand gestures or gifts are wonderful and appreciated, so perhaps this is what you're thankful for today. The little things that make our day or touch our hearts also give us reason to be thankful. Whatever it may be, recognizing these things not only in our lives, but in the lives of others, sometimes helps us to realize just how happy and successful we really are in this game called life.

There is a favorite quote that I try to remind myself daily about from Oprah Winfrey that says: "Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough."  Of course this doesn't apply to makeup and nail polish, but I think it does apply to life in general! 

Each day I will share something that I am thankful for, and I encourage you to do the same. In keeping with what I have noted above for what I am thankful for today, there will be a giveaway for all of my followers every day in November. It makes me happy to know that if you win something, your day may have been made just a little bit happier. 

11.1.13 PRIZE: Today's giveaway is just in time for the upcoming Sephora VIB 20% off sale (beginning November 7). Even if you're not a VIB, you can still put it to good use! One lucky follower will receive a $100.00 Sephora e-gift card. Please read the rules below for entry and exclusions. 


RULES: All prizes will be offered for an entry period of 3 days, at which time a winner will be selected and notified. The only requirements to enter are that you leave a comment below telling me something you're thankful for today, enter your basic information in the Rafflecopter widget below, and that you are a follower of Body & Soul (via social media, eMail subscription, Google Friend Connect, or various reader subscriptions). Only one entry per prize per person is allowed. You can gain additional entries in the Rafflecopter widget by tweeting the giveaway, becoming a new follower of the blog on Facebook, and/or becoming a new follower of the blog on Twitter. Entries will only be accepted by those residing in the U.S., excluding Alaska and Hawaii. Prizes will be shipped either from myself or the product's PR firm or representative, or they will be eMailed, such as with gift cards.

Good luck, and remember to be thankful for something each day!
