We reached 500 fans on FaceBook today (not to be confused with my old and defunct group that reached 500 fans a couple of years ago). We're just starting all over again with a new group of fans (some the same and thankful for them too!) and now as of today I have a CONTRIBUTOR... Theresa. And my steady co-owner, my husband, John! So happy for them.
Well I have some new goals now for today and with this group of 500. I incorporated my (first goal of the plan the day I opened the group and that was to have the TOPIC OF THE DAY) and Theresa suggested that I do it a couple of specified days of the week and so we are. Those days are THURSDAY and SATURDAY. And what I would like to do is blog about the outcome of those topics on Friday and Sunday. Along with anything else that I blog for the day.
Another item that is happening is the FAN OF THE WEEK CONTEST. That actually started the other day and goes through Sunday and starts new again on another given Monday of the week. It won't be every week because there needs to be time for me to gather up some prizes. And I want to keep it FRESH and EXCITING!
One item to note is my Scentsy and Candle Making and More business that I have online. Most of the posts concerning that will be done on my separate blog for that... and the first thing I need there are some MORE followers! Welcome to my candle blog at http://carolynscandlesandmore.blogspot.com/ I have an Etsy shop to go with that too and I hope to open that shop for the public one day before Halloween! So for now you can join the CarolynsCandlesAndMore blog. Thanks!
And now I bring to you the giveaway part of this. There will be three prizes to be won.
1. Sample size prize of some of the Scentsy fall waxes.
2. Sample size prize of some of the Scentsy layer products.
3. Surprise prize that isn't related to Scentsy. (will depend if it's a man or woman what the prize will be)
Due to postal concerns this contest is ONLY for the residents of the United States (not Hawaii or Alaska). You can expect to receive your prize within 2 - 2.5 weeks of winning. If it will be later than that I will contact you! GOOD LUCK!

I will show a manicure that will best match up with the level in which they choose to compete.

Here is the first MANI of the contest that I will post for an idea and directions with it. Who doesn't love CANDY CORN? This is a beginner's level mani.

Thin paintbrush (or white nail pen)
1. After applying a base coat, paint the entire nail orange. Let dry.
2. Paint yellow straight across the bottom of the nail.
Tip: To get a straight line without tape, start your brush on the outside of your nail and roll your finger outwards while keeping the brush straight.
3. Using a nail pen or paintbrush, paint white at the tip of your nail. Let dry, then cover with a clear coat. Voila!
(You can get the white nail pen at most any drug store or online, my online idea would be: http://search.ulta.com/search?p=Q&lbc=ulta&uid=359921554&w=white%20nail%20pen&method=and&view=grid&isort=price)
You can buy it wherever you want, this was one of many online spots I found. I bought the whole French Nail kit and the white nail pen came with that. As you can see, it's worth it to get the whole kit and not just the white pen. http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2239843&productId=xlsImpprod4160059&navAction=push&navCount=1&categoryId=cat80068
(I don't make any money on this entire blog at the moment or any of the links that I post.)
Also... you do not have to do this mani or enter the one you do like this into the contest. These are mani's that are being provided here to give you some help for creation of yours!
