If you can't tell, I'm a little addicted to social media. Facebook is awesome but Instagram, well, I love Instagram. I think the best part is the ability to meet other people who you wouldn't otherwise get to meet and to see all of the creativity being posted regularly. I've been committing to shopping small this holiday season and have been loving checking out all of the independent shops on Instagram and all that they have to offer. It's been inspiring being able to see people take their dreams and turn it into something great and I've been continuously touched by the generosity of others.
In addition to this Blogathon, I am doing an Instagram auction for my friend's son, James, who experienced a near drowning incident in May. (If you're on Instagram and would like to check out the items up for auction, go follow @turtlepowerauction!) The bidding for the Turtle Power Auction kicks off next weekend. With both the Blogathon and the Turtle Power Auction, I've been constantly amazed by the kindness and generosity that I've received as I pull these fundraising events together. It can't be easy to be an independent shop to begin with, but so many have still asked how they can help.
One of those shops is the amazing Sweet Bliss Sugar Scrubs Company (@sweetblisssugarscrubs on Instagram). Lynette has graciously offered one of her amazing Honey Love face and body polishes up for raffle.
The Honey Love body and face polish is made with love and care and contains high quality ingredients to leave your skin healthy and renewed!
And the winner is...
