Instant Pot Giveaway for Mother’s Day!

Instant Pots are all the rage these days.  They seem to be on the top of most mom’s wish lists.  They are quick, convenient, and help to make delicious meals; why wouldn’t every mom or homemaker want (or need) one? 

Well, if you still haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon and bought yourself one, you have the chance to win one right here! 

I’m partnering with 24 of my blogging friends to give away FOUR Instant Pots!  Yup, FOUR!!  Just in time for Mother’s Day. (You can view which one here.)

Instant pots cut way down on cooking time. For instance, dried beans can be done in 40 minutes or less, brown rice in 22 minutes, and whole potatoes in 10! [1] Foods can just be thrown all together in one pot and be done in just a fraction of the time that it would take in the oven, on the stove, or in a crockpot. What busy mom couldn’t use this to help her with her meal planning?!

What an amazing gift that would be, right?!

Bring On The Hen & Chicks Soap & GIVEAWAY! :)

*This giveaway is now closed.  The winner was Susan H.  Congratulations!*
The scents in this picture are Cinnamon Orange, Honey & Oats, (2) Lemony Lavender Castile, Sweet Mint & Tea Tree Rosemary & Clay.  This last soap I mentioned with clay contains bentonite clay, which is a powerful healing clay, great for the face and body.  Have I mentioned that I love these healthy ingredients? :)

I always squeal with delight when I open my mailbox to the aroma of Hen & Chicks Soap!  I used to have a bad opinion of handmade soap in the past from sniffing a few here and there at stores or local shops, and gasping at the ingredients that were in them.  Why would I want to pay $6 for a bar of soap that stinks and has harmful chemicals in it?  Then I discovered Hen& Chicks soap.  I saw on her website all the ingredients listed, and loved that she uses organic and essential oils – everything is safe and healthy! …And I love the smell!…And I love the price!
Hen & Chicks has been a sponsor of mine for several months now, and I’ve enjoyed her support and friendship.  She’s having a sale through the end of January on all her soaps, so be sure to take advantage of it!  Her soaps are always gone quickly too!  These are the kinds and current count she has as I type this~

Lemony Lavender Castile – 3 bars left

Star Anise – 4 bars left

Blueberry Butter – 4 bars left

Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Mint – 6 bars left 

*I am always amazed at the combinations this talented lady comes up with!* 
Using handmade soap is so beneficial because it hasn’t been stripped of its natural glycerin like store-bought soaps (they use this glycerin to make lotion! Hmmm….).  With the glycerin still in tact, your skin will not be stripped of its moisture, and these soaps are perfect for those with sensitive skin – even babies. Another thing I love about Hen & Chicks is that one bar of soap lasts much longer than regular soaps. 
Treat yourself today with handmade soap, and you won’t want to go back! :)

Also, I’m giving away a bar of Lemony Lavender Castile to one lucky reader, courtesy of Hen & Chicks Soap!  To enter, fill out the form below:
*Giveaway ends next Wednesday {Feb. 1st} at midnight.  *U.S. and Canada participants only please.*
