Near and Far Giveaway! Win a Salon Gift Certificate or Blog Makeover

Maybe all the sunshine has messed with my brain a little, but I am in a generally fabulous mood lately. The kids are as cute as ever, I got a steal on my digital camera, my garden looks fantastic, and I have I told you how fabulous my hair is these days?

My gorgeous hair is all thanks to Natanya, owner and operator of Ahead of Style. As I mentioned before, I traded her some web design for a perm and color-and can I just say that was a great trade? I am especially in love with my color-and in awe of the fact that Natanya could create the perfect color for me when all she had to work with was "I want a reddish-dark-brownishy color". The lady is definitely a professional...and a generous one at that...that's why she has agreed to participate in a fabulous giveaway with me!

For Readers Near By....

Do you live in the Vancouver/Portland area? How would you like to treat yourself at this great salon? Just leave your comment below, let us know you're in the great Northwest and looking for some Style, and the winner will recieve A $35 gift certificate from Ahead of Style!

With that $35 gift certificate you could get any of the following services:

FREE haircut
FREE Peek-A-Boo Coloring (2 Foils)
FREE Eyelash/Eyebrow tinting
FREE Spray Tan, Bikini Wax, or Half Leg Wax ('tis the season!)
FREE Deep Conditioning Treatment
FREE Provana Silk Degrees shine treatment
FREE Callous Removal Pedicure

Want more? Of course you do!

If the winner of the gift certificate loves Ahead of Style like I do and decides to indulge in salon services valued at $100 or more, Natanya will give add an additional $15 onto your gift certificate...making it a cool $50!

$50 for $100 worth of expert salon services? What a GREAT DEAL, am I right?

For Readers Far Away...

But what about those who are not blessed to live in our fair neck of the woods? I would NEVER leave you guys out!

In celebration of the rebranding of my web design business, newly operating as SPLASH OF COLOR STUDIOS, I personally will be giving one lucky far away winner a FABULOUS BLOG MAKEOVER! Included will be an entirely custom design for either a Blogger or Wordpress site, including a custom header, a matching button, and a custom signature! All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me you are a reader from afar and you want your blog (or your friend's blog, if you're feeling generous) to look fabulous!

You can get additional (optional) entries by:

  • Following Ahead of Style on Twitter
  • Following me on Twitter
  • Tweeting about this contest (please use @aheadofstyle or @_MrsM_ in your tweet, max two entries per day (so you can @ us both!))
  • Following my blog (leave your email if you follow through RSS)
  • Subscribing to Ahead of Style's feed (please leave your email)
  • Posting about this contest, with a link to both www.aheadofstyle.net and http://ivechangedmynametomommy.blogspot.com, on your blog (+5 extra entries!!)
Are you totally excited yet? I AM! So hurry up and leave your comment below telling me whether you are near or far. Don't forget to post one comment per additional entry option you take advantage of! The 2 winners (one from Near and one from Far!) will be announced on July 25th---Good luck everyone!

Hi MrsM!

What a great blog, and what an awesomely generous offer.

I'd like to donate my entry to WhiteSockGirl - when she says her blog needs a makeover, she's really just being polite! :) It's scary bad!! She's an amazing writer, and a great blogger, and a new, stylish look for her Blogger site would be huge for her.

Have followed you on Twitter. And Tweeted the contest with link back here.

Have followed your blog via Google RSS (greg[at]blbla.co.za]

And also posted about your contest (with all the required links) on The BlaBla Blog (at www.blabla.co.za/2009/07/18/the-kindness-of-strangers-blog-makeover-competition/) as well.

(Can we get her an extra contest entry for being really, really, far away - like 12,000 miles away?!)

Thanks again for the great offer, and for letting us try to help out our html-challenge friend!

Regards from sunny Joburg
Greg
