Who needs to relax, anyone, everyone? ;0) + You could win a free book!

This campaign's special is one that will help you melt into relaxation!  And seriously who after this long hard winter doesn't need a night of pampering?

That is why I have put the Avon Spa Finder Towel and Hot Rocks set on sale for $4!  Can you believe that?!?  You could easily spend $50 on a Salon Hot Rock treatment!  PLUS you also get my tip for making them work over the summer too!

To use these it is extremely simple!  I recommend putting on a kettle for some hot tea or coco, add in an extra two cups of water.  While that is heating up get a nice glass or ceramic bowl, i've found these keep the water warmer longer, one big enough for the towels and rocks to fit into.  When the water is ready pour into the bowl, pour your glass of tea or coco too, carefully place the rocks and towels into the bowl.  Find a relaxation place, this could be anywhere that is a comfy place for you, turn on some soft music.  (Wrap a towel around the bowl if you need to move it, I recommend you set up in your relaxation place.)  Let the rocks sit in the water, the longer they are in the water the warmer they will be.  I wouldn't recommended leaving them in longer than 3 minutes.  Carefully - maybe use tongs - remove the rocks from the water, dry off the excess water.  Place on the back of your neck, shoulders and/or back, where ever you are feeling stressed.  I like to put the towel over my face - I put one towel in the water and keep one to dry the rocks with.  Lay there for 20 minutes and let the work just melt away.  I get so relaxed I have to drink my coco with a straw because I am not lifting my head!  :0)  If you would rather lay face up you can place the rocks on your bed (I recommend a towel under the rocks) and lay on top of the rocks, this will allow you to read while you relax.

If that sounds heavenly to you - then run over to the store!  I only have a limited supply of - 4 left!  They aren't in the catalog at the moment so I don't know when I'll be able to restock!

Let's have a relaxation giveaway shall we?

One of my favorite ways to relax is with a good book!  I can take my twenty minute with my rocks and spend the next three hours with a good book - sadly I don't get to do that!  But I'll take 15 minutes when I can get it!  :0)  So for you my fantastic blog readers I am giving away a novel!

But wait - there is more!  If we get 100 entries I will give away BOTH books, that means we'll have two winners!

Still not excited?  If we get to 150 entries - I will also give away a random Avon product!

Winner one will get first pick, winner two and then winner three if there is one will get the last prize.
