Summer Thanks Giveaway! (CLOSED)

My posting has been a little sparse this summer because I've got a lot going on in my life. My Dad has a fairly rare type of blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma and he is currently in the hospital 5 hours away from home. He just received a bone marrow transplant and is on his way to kicking cancers butt! And you might also know that I am also chronically ill and I've been feeling quite under the weather as of lately. As you can imagine the whole situation is making for a very different kind of summer.

I'm trying to write as much as possible but I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for your patience and support. Beautiful Basics means so much to and I absolutely love being able to share my thoughts on natural products with you all. I test products and write about them for each and every one of you. Thank you for liking my blog and sharing posts and leaving comments. Each time I get to interact with you I am so appreciative of the support.



I've got two of my popular beauty grab bags to give to two lucky Beautiful Basics readers.

  4. Thanks for such a great giveaway!
    My summer has been filled with school, but I don't mind, working on my psychology degree =)
    Lets see...I have discovered The Body Deli brand, which is skincare, haircare, bodycare, you should check it out sometime ! I am slowly but surely falling in love with the brand. Also, Araza Natural beauty coconut creme foundation, great stuff =) I have been dealing with my adult acne problem again, so I am trying new things, so far looks promising.
    Hope you are having a great summer yourself =)

  14. We haven't done anything too exciting this summer. We have a new baby boy this summer, so we've mostly been staying pretty close to home. We did get to take him to do a lot of firsts though - first time swimming, first parade, first time at the park, and that is unbelievably exciting. Unfortunately, I've let my beauty routine kind of slide since I had him too. And I've been far more into new products for him than me. Though, I'm really sensitive to a lot of things, so some things that work for him have been doing double duty for me too. My new favorite use for everything product is organic coconut oil. It's great for him to prevent cradle cap, as a diaper rash cream, and on his skin, and it's great for me to use on my face, body, and hair. It also smells wonderful :)
