Black Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Black Friday Blog Hop So, I'm actually in Jamaica right now. And since Black Friday shopping does not exist in Jamaica, I usually miss out on it. So I'm super excited to be able to participate in this hop and the wonderful mayhem that is Black Friday.

Now, I was trying to decide what I was going to give away and then I decided that I was going to do something a little different. Instead of giving away a book, I'm going to give away a set of Sensual Amber Bath and Body Works body cream and a Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion. Why you ask? Because I love being pampered. I love reading, I love blogging, but I absolutely love being pampered. So I'm gonna give a lucky winner a chance to have a bit of pampering as well. And I love both those scents. And, as an added bonus, if I get more than 15 comments or reach 50 GFC followers, I'll also choose a second winner to receive some B&BW goodies. So tell your friends to stop by!

While the rest of the US is out handling the crowds, fighting for their holiday gifts, some of us like to stay in, shop online, or just ignore Black Friday all to together. This year, join us in our second annual Black Friday Blog Hop! It's a ONE DAY hop where we're giving away prizes, talking about books we love, and most likely  eating left over turkey. :-)

The hop is November 23rd and is ONE DAY only.

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $75 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!

So leave a comment with your e-mail below for a chance to win! Also, for an extra entry, follow me by GFC or by e-mail and mention it in your comment.

Now, don't forget to check out the other blogs participating and have a happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday! Now where's my margarita...

  4. I no longer shop on the "big" holidays. Too many people, rude service people, and just plain tiring! I shop online. Soooo much nicer. You get the same prices plus a lot of online only specials.

  14. I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I don't believe that shopping should ever be a full contact sport. I spend the day baking cookies with my kiddos instead.

  15. We don`t have Black Friday sales here (I`m an international reader), so I`m just attending giveaways like this one,lol.

  24. I haven't went Black Friday shopping for a couple of years. I'd much rather stay home and hop Blogs!

  25. I can't do Black Friday shopping (unless it's online) - I don't have the patience or the stamina for the lines and the crowds. Besides - I'm too busy blog hopping!! Happy Holidays and thank you for the opportunity to win some great prizes. By the way - I am following your blog through email.

  26. Oh what a great giveaway. I have a serious obsession with health and beauty items and love my BBW items! I am so happy to have this hop to do today instead of just vegging in front of the television like I normally do to avoid the crowds today! GFC follower-Scott Wilcox

    Happy Holidays,

  27. I love Black Friday shopping, (I live in a small town and people are pretty friendly, no blood or bruising) but this year they started at 8pm on thursday so I decided to stay at home and read. I went out about 11:30, when the stores were almost empty and still got all the specials that I wanted.
