Most of You Lost—Now You Know How I Feel.

The winner of the Lush™ shampoo bar is…

…comment #9, which turns out to be…

Cristin Lassen!

Cristin, email me as soon as possible with your address (if you don’t email me, I’ll email you—I just wanted to check and see if you’re paying attention first).  Cristin chose the Godiva bar, so I will send it off as soon as I get the necessary information.

I’m sorry I couldn’t give away more bars. As I was entering the data into the random number generator, I thought of all the other bloggers/company owners who have done the very same thing to choose a winner for contests I have entered these past few months (as per my goal of the year). I wondered if they felt sad about only having one winner for their giveaways—I know I do. So far, I haven’t won any of the contests or sweepstakes I’ve entered yet, and it’s quite disappointing. So, to all the losers out there who are not Cristin…I’m so sorry.  I feel your pain, truly.

If I ever make it big, strike it rich, or wake up one morning to find myself lying on a huge mound of cash with gold bricks for pillows, you can bet your bottom that I’ll pay it forward and buy all of you a Lush™ bar of your very own.  For now, though, I can only give one away.  For those of you who swore you’d buy a bar even if you didn’t win the giveaway, I’m holding you to that promise.  I would be delighted if Lush™ shampoo bar sales increased this month because of me and my post; I really don’t want them to go out of business.  So as soon as your current bottle of shampoo runs dry, toss the empty container in the recycling bin and carpool down to your nearest Lush™ store (or Lush™ website, because you can buy them there, too), and get yourself a shampoo bar.

Your scalp will thank you for it.

As for me, it’s Monday, which means tomorrow is Tuesday and I’m back in school.  For the last week I’ve been free on account of Reading Week, which is the Canadian cousin to Spring Break.  I hate that my university has their semester’s week-long break in February—it gives me absolutely nothing to look forward to in March.  My week was lovely, but it’s in the past, and I can’t be living in the past all the time.  I have to look forward to the misery that I know is coming my way.

Truth be told, this semester has me worried a lot more than any of the other semesters I’ve suffered in the past.  I have no idea where I stand in any of my classes, because I haven’t gotten many grades back on the work I’ve done yet.  I set the goal of getting straight A’s again this semester, but I feel like these next two months are gonna hit me hard as I work to achieve that goal.

The good news is that it’s only two months, and by the time I’m free, the snow will be melted and I will be one semester closer to never going back.  The way I have it figured, there will only be one more winter of me going to university.  This one’s practically over, and I can handle anything for just one more year.

So there is some good in all of this.

And this summer is going to be amazing.

Did you all have a lovely weekend, aside from the fact that you didn’t win a free bar of shampoo?

    Hi! Yay- I’m first! I have to admit I’ve been a lurker for a bit, but it feels kinda like a creepy covert operation reading people’s blogs without saying hi and introducing yourself, so I am. I found you via a link on my sister’s website and think you’re hilarious! Not sure whether you actually know her or whether she just linked to you but regardless- I really enjoy your website and share your love for lush products- my husband (then boyfriend), right after we met discovered Lush when they opened a store in Scottsdale and went on a shopping spree for all the lucky women in his life (just me, and his sister and mom, I think- I’m pretty sure he wasn’t dating anyone else at the time, never thought to ask but even if he was, he’s mine now and I won! so ha!) So anyway, thanks for blogging and I hope you have a lovely week back to school.

    Boo. I didn’t win. Just for that I hope your start back to school is no fun. Ok, not really because I’m trying to be your friend and thats not really condusive to friendship. Let me start again.

    Thank you for the opportunity to yet again prove what crappy luck I have. I hope you have a great week back at school!

    Wow I totally spaced it and didn’t even enter the contest. Oh well, I won two other contests within the same week so I guess I can’t complain. The shampoo looks cool but I got talked into buying this special shampoo for curly hair while at the salon the other day. I’m such a sucker.

    Oh I adore you. Please tell me your summer is going to be amazing because you are coming to AZ. (Even with its deathly temperatures). If so, we are meeting face to face. xoxo

    Boo. I didn’t win :( My brother won FIVE contests last week! And he’s been telling me how lucky he is for the whole weekend… Boo.
    I’m a looser

    I won! I won!!!! I am so happy! I was actually thinking about this giveaway yesterday, HOPING that I won. This is very exciting. I’ll email you my address.

    I Sorry I didn’t enter the contest. I just read your previous posts. I probably wouldn’t have entered anyway because you know how I feel about this sort of thing, and something as wonderful as that Lush bar should go to someone who genuinely cares about the environment, recycling, yadda, yadda, yadda. Anyway, I’m still reading, and I clicked out of Google Reader to leave a comment. That’s how much I love you. Sorry you have to go back to school.

    Hi Camille!

    I didn’t win… and I don’t have a store near me. So I just bought some online!! They got lucky, too, because shipping was so expensive that I decided to order several products to make it worth my while. I’m really excited to get my new shampoo (and bubble bath!)

  9. amber says:

    Guess what I’m buying tomorrow? ;) A solid shampoo bar!! Not sure which yet though, it’s a tie between New, Goiva, and Seanik.
