The Balm Contest for November: “What are You Truly Thankful For?”

November 4, 2007 at 6:06 pm 6 comments

Mythbuster Beauty and The Balm are very excited to announce Mythbuster Beauty’s 2nd official contest:

“What Are You Truly Thankful For?”

Marissa Shipman (The Balm’s Founder and CEO) and Carly agreed to sponsor the November contest. I have mentioned their cosmetic products before, such as my favorite concealer timeBalm anti-aging concealer. Their Plump your Pucker lip gloss is one of the best lip glosses/plumpers on the market. The Balm wants to award this month’s winner with some of their fabulous cosmetics.

In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, I thought an appropriate theme would be, “What Are You Truly Thankful For?” Please submit your entry by submitting a comment to this post describing an event, person, place or thing that has blessed your life.

To inspire you, here is a well known favorite Shaker hymn that perfectly encompasses our theme called, “Simple Gifts,” by Elder Joseph Brackett (1848):

Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free,
Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain’d,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be asham’d,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right.

I am truly blessed in my life. I am filled with gratitude when I reflect on all the simple and wonderful gifts that I have and often take for granted. Family, food (especially chocolate), friends, freedom, faith…

Please share with us, and my many thanks to you, my friends of the blogosphere.  The deadline for this contest will be Wednesday, November 21st, 2007.
