Treat Yourself Valentine’s Day Giveaway!


You deserve a treat, don’t you? Of course, you do. We all do. It’s been a rough year and a half with this recession and all. I’m going to hazard a guess that Oprah and Bill Gates aren’t reading this blog, so probably all you have been impacted in some way by our current economic situation. Then, there’s the daily headache that comes from paying attention to the goings on in Washington. No matter what our individual politics may be, nothing really seems to be getting done for anyone.

I was thinking about all this and about all the generous folks who took part in my Haiti Fundraiser and I was thinking what I could do to treat you all to something special. I came up with a contest, of course. I wish I could treat every single one of you—that’s just not possible at this point–but I can treat 2 of you to a prize of goodies donated from some of my favorite crafter makers. You can see the prizes and donaters below.

Since, I can’t treat all of you (or myself, for that matter) with this contest, I want you to decide to treat yourself and share your plans. It can be something small & cheap or something big & expensive…whatever you are able to do. The goal though is for you to do something for yourself or take some time for yourself. You really deserve it. So whether you plan on doing someone like taking a long overdue bubble bath, treating yourself to a frothy coffee confection, getting some books from the library and luxuriously reading them all weekend, buying a bottle of some fancy perfume or planning a fabulous vacation, it really doesn’t matter.Β  The important thing is to treat yourself!

So, how to win the giveaway? Leave a comment below with your plans for treating yourself. You can leave multiple comments to increase your chances, but each comment must include a different way you plan on treating yourself! You can also include your prize preference. I will choose 2 random commenters to win the prizes. This giveaway will end February 14th at 11:59 pm EST.

  29. For Valentine’s Day? How about a romantic stay at a warm and cozy room with a steam shower and hot tub.

  34. Wow!-I plan to treat myself by attending my second grade sons Valentine’s Day party which I don’t get to do often. Then away to a cabin in a snowy wonderland, on the bluffs of a park, over looking the Mississippi River with my husband. Hopefully, spotting some eagles to photograph, spending time crafting in the cozy cabin, and enjoying dinner at the lodge. Followed by a great night’s sleep and breakfast in bed. Then milling around the park enjoying nature and not having to speak. Thrifting and vintage shopping awaits mid-morning Saturday. The “plans” stop there-I kinda like the way that sounds. The rest of the weekend is plan free!!!! Unless of course I had word of a win on these fantastic prizes that I would be happy to have even one item out of either Prize 1 or Prize two.
    Oh by the way, I am a newby to Indie Fixx-I signed on only a couple of weeks ago and you and your guest bloggers are a true inspiration and I would love to someday attempt to follow in your footsteps! INDIE FIXX KIX!!

  35. I think I’d love to take a long, steaming, hot, bubbly bath for a couple of hours with low lighting and a soundtrack of Nigerien music in the background… Followed by getting into some comfy sweatpants and taking a long drive at midnight to a couple of towns over, with my iPod on shuffle and turned up loud, plus a cup of hazelnut cappuccino next to me.

    I think that sounds a lot better. πŸ˜€

    My preference is #2!

  36. I think, if I had the time to, I would treat myself to a day with my husband. I would start with breakfast, just the two of us. No running around trying to fill sippy cups, prying food out of the toaster, or trying to keep everyone at the table. Not sure where to go from there…but it’s a start :o)

    I would very much enjoy prize number 2

  37. For Valentine’s Day this year, I’d like to treat myself by making some tempura calamari, okra, zucchini…I’m also making strawberry cakettes dipped in vanilla candy frosting with Mexican chocolate grated on top. Nom nom nom nom…

  38. I’m treating myself (and hubby) to chocolate strawberry cheesecake….yum!
    I love that bag in prize #2!

  46. I might treat myself to carry out Thai food and a sappy movie marathon! Prize #2 would be perfect. Thank you!

  53. I am going to have a long-long-long hot bath with many flowers on it as my dear one is traveling… So its what i’m planning to do.


  54. I don’t think I’ve worn anything with a ruffle bum since I was a toddler in ruffle bum tights. But those panties look like they might just update the fashion to one an adult can rock. That gets me thinking there must be some other childhood delights that one could indulge in today. I think I’ll brainstorm on that theme for holiday fun!

  55. Plan to relax with my husband. I’m off the whole week from school. No school work allowed on 2/14. πŸ™‚

    Love prize #2. So cute!

  56. after weeks of watching what i eat and cutting out all the yummy stuff for the healthy boring stuff im going to treat myself to some yummy yumness this weekend for valentines day!! oh and ill treat my honey to some delicious baked yummyness!!

  57. Unfortunately I will be studying hard until the end of the month but I’m planning a getaway weekend to a nice little village not too far away (nothing is far away in Portugal, really) with my boyfriend. I guess the Plum Ruffle Bum Panties would be a nice additional surprise for him but I still have my fingers crossed for prize number 2.

  58. Well after 9mnth of being pregnant I wish i could treat myself to seeing my cute lil girl but she’s being stubburn. lol So i will treat myself to some eggplant parmesan at Giovanni’s. The prize I like is #1. Those frilly panties are too cute!

  62. all the prizes look fabulous, but the stuff from house of gloi looks especially yummy πŸ™‚

  63. i work at a Barnes & Noble, & if the book i ordered comes in in time, i’ll treat myself to that, & maybe a slice of the godiva double chocolate cheesecake from the cafe……mmmmmm πŸ™‚

  64. Oh, and I will indulge in some of my absolutely favorite dark chocolate- a Valentine’s Day necessity! (:

  65. This Valentine’s I will be at the lake. So, I’m going to grab my blanket and go lay out on the dock by myself for a while, enjoy the view, and maybe a cup of tea. It will be wonderful!

  68. With Valentines day falling on a Sunday, our family day of rest and prayer, we are going to indulge in a yummy brunch at a local restaurant then we are on to an art museum to indulge in the arts. An afternoon tea will follow. The best of the day is spending the whole day together with my Valentine.

  69. I too am over 60 and will treat myself to knee surgery. Bakers cyst is not kind to old people with bad knees. Guess this comes from 40+ years as a nurse. walking up and down halls on your feet 10 hours a day does not do your body good.

  70. Firstly, I’m going to sleep in as long as humanly possible in the morning, steep myself some tea, and then fix myself a nice, hot, handmade herbal bath. Later that night, I will be dining at a nice Cuban restaurant downtown. Sleep, relaxation, and good food is certainly the way to go. πŸ™‚

    PS. both prizes are lovely!

  71. I’m treating myself to a day of relaxation. A cup of cocoa and pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. A cozy outfit to wear ALL day (maybe even PJs…). A good book and probably more cocoa or tea with some yummy, fancy caramels. A nice, simple dinner with wine and of course the hubby can join. A good soak in the tub with my favorite ambient music and candles lit everywhere. I’m getting relaxed just thinking about my relaxing day. πŸ™‚

  72. Though if I don’t win, I’ll be taking a trip to VT with my sweetie to see a great concert. That should be a great change of scenery and fairly peaceful. Can’t wait until then!

  73. I think I’d have to treat myself to some good time to brainstorm what to keep in the vial necklace! Many possibilities spring to mind πŸ™‚

  74. If the weather is decent (forecast says yes) I will take a walk in the park and go to the farmer’s market to get some delish veggies and fruit and see all the street performers.

    (I love package #2!)

  75. I’m gonna have a good cuddle with my doggie and treat myself to a homemade desert… brownies or pie? Hmmm… maybe lemon meringue.

    (I love package #2!)

  76. Just some time to watch some movies, soak up some sun (it’s been raining in LA recently…), and perhaps some rollerblading or iceskating would be divine.

  77. I am going to treat myself by staying in one weekend and catching up on seasons 5 and 6 of Lost!

  78. I’ll be treating myself and my loved ones to some yummy, homemade, heart-shaped frosted sugar cookies!

  79. I’ll be treating myself to a nice quiet evening dinner with my hubby. After a nice fun day with my hubby & kids. Mushy cards & dark chocolates and pretty things all around. Hubby usually surprises me with fun gifts or takes me shopping to pick something out. I usually choose shoes. Spending time with the ones I Love the best is the very bestest part tho. πŸ™‚

  80. I’ll be treating myself with a calm movie night in bed with my boyfriend. After this crazy semester, we both need a break!

    PS: those earrings are to die for!

  81. Time is the best way to treat myself. Time to breathe, read, relax & reflect. The Vice Gift Set is deliciously perfect for a ‘breather’ before, during or after Valentines.

  82. I’m treating myself for a knitting marathon on V day. I want to finish a blanket that I have been working on for two years! LOL Also I bought so many yummy yarn, I need to start making something out of them too.

    I always love oktak items. So #2 for me!

  83. a nice warm bath, chocolate pudding and sketching in my notebook without worrying about my homework, thats how i will treat myself

  84. and at the very end, I’ll put the last of my stress relieving lotion on, and go to bed EARLY for the first time in months.

  85. i’m a medical student and I have a giant exam on friday. This weekend, I’m planning on treating myself with the gift of time. I’m going to have an extra cup of tea, curl up with my knitting and my favourite radio programs and pretend like I’m on holidays. *sigh*. I CAN’T WAIT!

  86. maybe I’ll bake a crazy cake, and put every flavor of pudding mix in it that catches my eye. hopefully it will turn a strange color, and not make everyone sick. like the last one….XD

  87. when not eating delicious sweets, I’ll put my music on really loud, lock the door, and have a crazy one person dance party to get all my valentines day blues out.

  88. i’m treating myself to job work and school work, huzzah! prize #2 could make up for me lackluster love life. (at least make it prettier)

  89. Ill probably go into the dining hall and make myself a huge chocolate chip waffle with cinnamon sugar, syrup, and whipped cream :3 mmmmmm

  90. i love love love both prizes! and all things valentine’s. But I treat myself every vday by celebrating my birthday which is on feb 14!

  91. OH MY! These treats are all so sweet! I’d love to win any of these items and indulge! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! L.

  92. Alone: I would treat myself with a sandwich from Veggie Grill (lunch) and unagi-don (dinner) – two of my comfort foods. Then I’d take a long bubble bath, and after I towel off, I stay on the couch reading a new book or two. Books, quiet, comfort food – bliss!

    (I love Prize #2, and would be able to use more of it – as cute as those panties in #1 are, they wouldn’t fit. Alas!)

  93. I’d like to indulge myself in a nice long bath, complete with relaxing music, a good book, and a mug of my favorite tea or cocoa. Maybe treat my hair to a conditioning treatment and or use a facial mask. I’ll use a bath bomb and some new body scrub, and slather on the scented lotion when I get out.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  94. A nice dinner out with my husband and then each of us reading in front of the fireplace! Thanks, Cindi

  95. Im going to bake a cake and watch silly B horror films with my gf. Like we do every year πŸ™‚

  98. I plan on treating myself to a nice bottle of wine and some dark chocolate! And new frilly pink underwear, of course.

  99. i plan to treat myself by giving myself a couple hours a day just to relax – read a book anything just completely silence. Which you know is a treat when you have a family.

  100. Well I’m treating myself by treating someone else! It’s my beautiful son’s 18th Birthday and I am giving him a party with all our friends and family what better way to express love than spending time with the ones you love!

  101. I realized that at almost 60 and after raising 5 children, I did not have to feel guilty about doing something just for me. I love my children, husband and grandchildren, but every Valentine’s Day I make sure everyone has something special, even if it is something small like a card and candy. This year, I ordered myself some roses (they were on sale for under 40.00 with a little box of candy). I bought myself some bubble bath I love and a new romance novel instead of checking one out at the library) I am going to spend time on Valentine’s Day, soaking in a hot bubble bath, listen to my favorite jazz cd, light some lavender candles and eat chocolate and read. Most of all, I am going to not feel guilty!

  102. I will be having a lovely, long bubble bath, followed by cookies and a romantic movie. I’m excited!

  103. I’m going to eat a bagel & cream cheese for breakfast (maybe 2), cheesecake for lunch, and cheese pizza for dinner. I’m going to catch up on reality shows (perhaps the The Bachelor), and take a long hot shower.

  104. Valentine’s day falls on the same day as Chinese New Years, which is a family tradition of ours. I usually visit my family during this day, but unfortunately can’t this year. I plan on calling my parents and indulging in some home made dumplings, yum! Again Prize 2 is my fav (although I lovelovelove the Field Trip printin #1)

  105. I’m planning on baking some red velvet cupcakes, delish! It’s a tough choice, but I adore the Edith bag and the Broken Plate Pendant Company earrings.

  106. opps, forgot to mention my splurge for sense of smell… a new perfume! and my sense of touch, a back rub!

  107. I (heart) the Queen Bee Bag! I will be treating myself to a Fuchsia mani & lipstick to match!

  108. touch…the last sense. I can already feel how soft the Edith tote is, how smooth the Broken Plate Earrings are, and how perfect the mini pouch fits into my palm.

  109. I also plan to treat myself to a moisturizing sugar scrub with a great scent– maybe coconut! It will help my dry winter skin and lift my mood, too.

  110. I plan to treat myself with a day to sleep late! This is my ultimate luxury… zzzzzzz…..

  111. I am on a quest to appreciate all of my senses and the Vice gift set from prize #1 would smell divine…and my olfactory senses would be in heaven.

  112. My sense of sight would be enhanced by the posters from Field Trip in prize #1. I also could not make it through the day without reading…a hot steamy romance would be perfect, don’t you think?

  113. i’m also hoping to plan a date night w/ the hubs…w/ 3kids and one on the way we are definitely overdue.

  114. Treat myself by treating my friends and family with all the goodies in your give away. Sweet treats and Happy Valentine’s Day to all.

  115. Prize #2 is calling me strongly, and I plan to hunt for some CDs I haven’t listened to awhile, revisit those old friends while relaxing…just to reconnect with my sense of hearing.

  116. All you giveaways are fantastic, but I especially love the Edith tote in prize #2. I am going to sleep late, make a great omelet for my husband and myself to enjoy my sense of taste… and savor chocolate throughout the day.

  117. I think a haircut would be a treat – maybe even a manicure, too! I love both sets so either would make me more than excited to win! Thanks for the giveaway!

  118. I want to treat myself by allowing some time to do crafts–mostly spinning! It’s been so long!!!

  119. Prize #1 is so Sweet!!!
    My girlfriends and I are all going to see the new Valentine’s Day movie this weekend to treat ourselves! I love a good movie night with the girls.

  120. What a wonderful giveaway! There are a few things I do to treat myself. Every couple of weeks I go to a little store in the next town where they make a killer cheeseburger. Since I try not to eat hardly any beef this is a huge occasion. Right now I’m settling for a hot chocolate and great book from the library. I hope you are treating yourself to something wonderful too!

  121. I am going to treat myself by going to the fabric store and buying some really pretty fabric

  122. I should also take a drive where I can see mountains on the road! My routine drive to work doesn’t have that… Feels fabulous seeing the grand landscape stretch in front of me…

  123. I don’t have a prize preference, but I plan to treat myself by letting my boyfriend cook for me for once!

  124. Oh my. What I really want to treat myself with now is indeed a weekend actually cuddling with my new books. Spend the weekend reading instead of keeping interrupting myself with the internet.

  125. a day of treating myself? hmm it would start with a no plan day… wake up whenever id like, take a nice long relaxing shower, maybe a nice lunch or some shopping then a nice dinner with the mister.
    i love prize #1
    Thanks for the nice giveaway!

  126. Adorable! So, my boyfriend had to leave to Germany for work last week. But before he got onto the airplane, he bought me a huge bag of those delicious candy hearts! He’ll be home tomorrow night, only to find that his absence has caused an entire bag to go missing πŸ˜‰ I often spoiled my dinners this week.

  127. I plan on making truffles for MYSELF. And maybe, if I’m lucky, getting a babysitter and going to a movie with my husband. Maybe.

  128. Since it’ll be a weekend at the end of my quarter at school, I’ll be busy busy busy! Seems like the work keeps piling up.. but I’m stashed up on some tasty heart candies that will get me through the day.

    Prize #2. πŸ™‚

  129. I love, love, love Prize #1!!! I mean, REALLY LOVE IT! I would brag about it incessantly on my blog/site.

I had my hubby scoot out on the crazy roads to get me 3 kinds of yummy cheeses, a GOOD bottle of wine, and chocolate so that I can treat myself (while he entertains the kids for at least half a day) to: 1. long yoga session, 2. meditation, 3. candle-light reading while munching on my yummy cheeses, chocolate and red wine. YUM! No kids allowed! Just me and my thoughts and my goodies. THANK YOU!

  130. I’m thinking about a mini road trip to a museum or two, and something sweet and sinfully delicious!

  131. I would treat myself by having a whole day to listen to the radio, knit, and read! What a luxury.

  132. I’m treating myself this Valentine’s day by quitting smoking…I started the Chantix yesterday, so 2/14 is the big quit day…eek! I’m excited for a future where I can breathe going up a flight of stairs!

  136. I am literally driving 2 hours to my mother’s house to spend a relaxing weekend while she plays with my kids. Haha! I plan to go to dinner with an old friend with NO KIDS in tow. I love my kids, but it’s nice to just be me once in awhile. πŸ™‚ I’ll be home in time for V-day evening with hubby.

  137. I’m going to treat myself by making a yummy dinner & having my kids & grandkids over for dinner & Valentine cupcakes. Not very relaxing ~ but a perfect way to celebrate love!

  139. After dealing with lots and lots of snow this week, a hot bath with relaxing lavender oil will be AMAZING!

  280. Also, a trip back to my hometown. It’s been 7 yrs and I think I’ll finally splurge so I can see all my friends. Not exactly restful, more like exhilirating.

  281. Hope to sleep in this V-Day; it’d be a rare treat but if I can pull it off it’ll be amazing <3

  282. That tote is adorable. I love the grey contrasting with the bright flowers. A mix of professional and fun. It would work with anything. I covet it. πŸ™‚

  283. I plan on treating myself by buying a nice bottle of wine. I’ve been living off of Two Buck Chuck for MONTHS now and have forgotten what a nice Riesling tastes like.

  284. My treat to myself will be a walk in the woods with my family and then a new battery for my ’65 Mustang. πŸ™‚

  285. I’m treating myself to a cup of hot tea and a hot tub, while listening to an audio book read by one of my favourite Dutch authors.

  286. Queen Bee Edith tote! My 8 year old QB bag has seen better days. Sadly, it will be taking a last victory lap on my much deserved extra long weekend getaway.

  287. I actually already treated myself- my husband and I went to Hawaii just because we could. And it was wonderful. I’d go for prize 2, especially since there are cute earrings there that I could treat myself to. I never buy myself jewelry so that would be a treat. Thanks for the giveaway.

  288. first, i’ll be awakened by the sound of two sweet (but hollering) babies who want their breakfast NOW!

    i’ll make scrambled eggs for my wonderful husband (since it IS a saturday and a nice leisurely breakfast would be a nice dream.) though i will eat mine while standing over the sink, bouncing between the pre-schooler who wants more ketchup and the babies highchair.

    i’ll dream of the time i HAD time before babies, but snuggle them close (as i recall one was conceived on valentines day hee hee hee)

    i truly would cherish an edith tote from queen bee! so i could sneak off for a day of retail therapy.

  289. A pot of some spring-flowers, a long hot bath with a fizzy bath thing, some yummy sushi for lunch.

  290. We actually have a babysitter for Valentine’s Day (first time in almost 4 years!) and we’re going to get dinner somewhere relatively nice and then walk around holding hands and looking at the stars.

  291. I’m skipping feb 14th and celebrating Velentines day on the 18th! Will be heading to Miami for the first time and plan on treating myself heavily there!!!

  292. I’ll be treating my fiance, who was recently laid off, to breakfast in bed. I’ll make him his favorite Mexican dish for dinner πŸ™‚

  293. I’ll have to think on this more. I think I’ll take my two little girls (both 3) out for some ice cream. We don’t do enough of that kind of thing during the day.
    That is a great tote.

  294. I am treating myself to time with my husband. We have different work schedules so we don’t get to see each other as often as we would like. It’s always nice when we can carve out time for each other.

    I prefer #2.

  295. If I was treating myself, it would involve a crossword puzzle, a bar, and a beer or two on a weekday afternoon. There really is nothing better! And I’d love to tote my tip money around in prize #2.

  296. I would like to treat myself to a date with my kids! If I won prize #1 it would be a date at home. Prize #2 would be a nice dinner out. Either would be amazing!!!

  297. I am determined to use a spa gift certificate that I recieved last April.Baby # 2 arrived a month early and changed my plans.

  298. I would like treat myself to a relaxing day with a long walk on the beach and some sushi. No hectic work schedule or problems to solve. Just some sun and peace of mind.

    This is a wonderful giveaway! Thank you so much for doing this. πŸ™‚

  299. β€˜I Love You This Much’ Print from Stephanie Fizer!
    Total treat to myself…I have been wanting one of her prints forever and it will be my 40th b-day on the 10th.

  300. I will be treating myself to time with friends. I’m busy all the time and do not get to see friends as much as I like to, so I am hosting dessert at my house. Fun!
    (I like prize #1 – all of it πŸ™‚

  301. I’m treating myself to a rare girls day out complete with mimosas and manicures. I’ve been working hard towards a healthier me this year through diet and exercise, and that definitely includes spoiling myself a little bit!

  302. If I won treat collection number 2 I would dress myself up for a night out with my girlfriends and give my neice the print for her room (it’s precious!)

  303. My bf just asked me if we could take an inexpensive vacation together actually πŸ™‚ It was the sweetest thing and he asked at just the right time (you know, that time that you’re just so overwhelmed and stressed out that nothing seems to be going right?) so it sounds like that will be our plan. Just the two of us, getting some quiet, chill time away from everyone and everything else up in the mountains of southern colorado. Luckily we have a family cabin up there that we can stay at for free πŸ˜‰

  304. I plan on celebrating V-day by planning little activities in my city and nearby throughout the year to remind myself that I deserve breaks & treats throughout the year – even something as simple as a bike ride by the ocean.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  305. I would love to treat myself to a new butt that would look as good as the one in those bum panties! But since that’s not possible, I’d love to treat myself to a new hair cut and color – and I’d love to go to the salon looking fabulous with the Queen Bee tote!

  306. Teat myself? been a while since I tried that. I would take the day just for myself & maybe go for a trail ride

  307. For Valentine’s Day, I plan to treat myself by having my parents visit our new house and help me paint the hallways.

    #1 is my fave.

  308. #2 Looks so sweet! I love it!

    Okay, so this is tough because I have a one year old and I’m 6 months pregnant….finding time for myself is a little difficult these days but definitely NECESSARY! I’m planning a getaway with my hubby before the new baby comes. 3 nights! Yeah, that’s right baby! 3 nights and 4 days of sleeping as long as want, crafting as as much as I want and being responsible for NO ONE! Woo hoo! Can you tell I’m excited?

  309. I am going to take the day off work and sleep in ! Then i am having a spa day then out to dinner with hubs.

  310. The prizes are both so cute, but my preference would be #1. I plan on doing whatever I want for an entire weekend. Foing to art openings, just lazing around, eating whatever I want – with no comments about it from anyone aroudn me!!

  311. As always, a decadent dessert is always a treat. I want to bring back my childhood and bake a heart-shaped cake for Valentine’s – just cause.

  312. Spending the time to make a luxurious dinner one night with no rushing, so other commitments, would be a treat for me – not something I do often.

  313. One thing I have been wanting to do for a while is go skating outside – I think that would be so romantic!

  314. I would treat myself by having a night out with my husband and afterwards taking a nice relaxing bath with him πŸ™‚

  315. Sometime this month, I would like to set aside of day without plans, without schoolwork, without housework, without work work. In all likelihood, this day will involve a lot of 1) reading in bed; 2) indulging in Haus of Gloi bath and body products, to which I am addicted; 3) going on a nice walk around my neighborhood; and 4) consuming copious amounts of tasty foodstuffs…

    I would just LOVE to win prize #1. All of the items look fantastic, not to mention that Vice is my absolute favorite Haus of Gloi scent. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  316. A treat to myself would be a pampering mani/pedi followed by a romantic evening with my sweetie. I’m jonesin’ for #2!

  317. i think the day will be long enough to take some photos of the winter landscape here and to read a chapter of my favorite book…

  318. I’m going to treat myself to some much-needed girl time with my girlfriends and partaking in some Happy Hour toasts and treats! *Sigh* I’m relaxed just thinking about how much fun it’ll be!

  319. I have already taken some money and went on a shopping spree at Hobby Lobby this week. I will take another one of those days please!! Hey, a girl can dream!

  320. I’m planning to take it easy and make cards and tasty cookies for all the people in my life I care about. You don’t have to have a significant other to feel loved!

    Prize #2. πŸ™‚

  321. I plan on treating my friends and myself to some homemade truffles for Valentines Day.

    If I win prize #1 I’ll treat myself to a hot bath with my new scents.

    If I win prize #2 I’ll treat myself to a night out with my new purse.

  322. I was already plotting a way to treat myself with some Haus of Gloi, so yea…free Haus of Gloi EVEN BETTER!!!

  323. My husband and I are going to San Francisco this weekend and I’m treating myself to some shopping, dinner at an Italian restaurant in North Beach and wine tasting at Cafe Zoetrope. I would love prize package #2- I’ve been coveting the Edith Totoe for a long time!

  324. In a couple of days, I will be going to Australia to study abroad for the semester. I will be leaving my boyfriend behind so to treat myself on Valentine’s day, I will have a chat with him on Skype and then spend the day lounging on the beach and then being my own dinner date.

  325. On Valentine’s Day I fully intend on relaxing, eating some premium chocolate while reading a book. Then enjoying a lovely home cooked meal by candlelight with my sweet sweet man.

    I wouldn’t mind be surprised with that amazing Edith tote, as well!! πŸ™‚

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!


  326. I’m treating myself by flying to Portland, OR (my hometown) for a week to see my new nephew. πŸ™‚

  327. My treat would be to do nothing for an entire day! Maybe knit and watch TV, but no laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc. Ah…..
    BTW, I love prize #2!

  328. I’m planning on treating myself to sleeping in! With two babes-that’s a luxury!
    Prize number 2-love Stephanies print!!

  329. I’m taking the money i made babysitting this week and spending it on myself instead of on bills or what my husband wants. I’m ordering 2 small bottles of handmade perfume and a couple of books i’ve been wanting. I don’t get time to myself (i’ve got a very needy toddler), so having things come in the mail brightens my day immensely.

  330. This Valentines Day I intend to treat myself to some quality time with my husband. Since he’s been in the military we haven’t gotten to spend a Valentines (or Anniversery) together for that matter so this will be our first! We are going away to a hotel for the night with a whirlpool suite to spend some quality time away from the video games, computer, and everything, just him and I. I really can’t think of a better way to treat myself this Valentines day πŸ™‚ We will have champagne and breakfast in bed, I can’t wait!


  331. I am in the process of getting healthy and living a better lifestyle, so with each 10 lbs lost i’m rewarding myself with something small. A date night with chinese food and a movie, a new good book, and a new travel coffee mug are in my future!

  332. I’m treating myself to a Criminal Minds marathon this V-Day! It’s so hard to choose between the prizes, but I’ll go with #2 because I love love love purses.

  333. Funny that I should be reading this now. I work part-time from home and once I sit down to my desk in the morning, I never get up – not to eat, drink, barely go to the bathroom, until it is time to pick up the kids from daycare. But today, I called my mom this morning and asked her to go to lunch with me today. Very unusual for me to do this when I am on “work time.” But I know that it is important for me to eat and spend alone time with my mom. I am excited for our lunch today. And I LOVE the Plum and Sage necklace. Thanks!

  334. Tonight, I’m going to clean the tub and take myself a nice long bath with all the magazines that I haven’t read for the past few months.

  335. I will be going to the library for a book spree. I have been so busy lately (I am a self employed photographer) that my love of reading has suffered. Im going to take out at least 5 books and just relax with a cup of hot chocolate and snuggle under my covers with a nice book.

  336. Ironically, I do most of what you mentioned already!

    Nothing beats a bubblebath at night with a good book in hand. Especially when the bath is accompanied by a reeaaaaally nicely scented bath bomb. πŸ™‚

  337. It’s been a rough year for a couple of my girlfriends and me, so the three of us planned a trip to New York City over Valentine’s Day weekend! We plan to treat ourselves to a few days of delicious food, a carriage ride in central park, shopping, and, of course, one another’s company!

    #2 looks amazing! thanks! πŸ™‚

  338. I plan to treat myself to a new wardrobe this year. I finally have a great day job and a lot of security and can actually update my wardrobe to “grown up” clothes. Man, that Edith Tote would be a perfect addition!

    (Preference = #2)

  339. my plans for treating myself include a “teen mom” marathon and some tootsie rolls, after a long weekend of grading student papers! my prize preference is #1

  340. i love love love. #2…i would put the purse over my shoulder, the earrings on and treat myself to a fabulous night out!

    love your bloggy by the way

  341. I plan on sleeping in at least one day on Valentine’s Day weekend and eating something sinfully delicious without sharing πŸ™‚

    It’s going to be AWESOME.

  342. Ohh what a fabulous giveaway!
    I think I need to treat myself to:
    date night with my hubby
    a new hair cut
    time to make Valentine cookies and eat them!

    Love package #2! But all the gifts are lovely!

  343. a day to treat myself consists of making no plan at all…so much of my world is planned by the minute; a day to plan nothing is my treat to myself….

  344. Queen Bee Tote. Love their designs and although I’m not allergic to bee stings I may need an epi pen to calm the swelling to smile if I win this gem. Buzz Buzz Buzz

  345. Flapper Girl ruffle pantie. Not sure if I’d be treating myself or my husband, but I’d love the chance to find out.
