The Body Shop Mother's Day Giveaway


I'm thrilled to announce that The Body Shop is teaming up with the Meanest Mom to offer another exciting Mother's Day Giveaway!

I'm not a fan of jumping through hoops for a chance to win prizes, but this one is painless...and if you like personality quizzes, even (gasp) fun.

The ladies at The Body Shop have put together a little quiz to help you determine what kind of mom you are. There are only 8 questions, none of which ask you for your credit card number, login name or password, or blood type. The quiz only takes one minute to complete if you are by yourself at the computer, 30 seconds if a small child is screaming in your face.

At the end of the quiz, you'll be told what "type" of mom you are: Earth Mother, Supermom, Glamour Mom, or Wise Woman. Sadly, a Mean Mom is not one of the options (I pushed for its inclusion, but for some odd reason there was a concern that some women may not like being labeled a mean mom). Hmph!!! Anyway, report your results (ie. tell me what kind of mom you are) in the comments section of this post and you'll be entered to win a BODY SHOP MOTHER'S DAY BEAUTY PACKAGE (featuring products specifically designed for your mom type) worth over $100!!!

TO TAKE THE QUIZ, CLICK HERE.


Have you ever been into The Body Shop? Like the grocery store, you shouldn't go shopping there when you are hungry. Just because something smells good enough to eat doesn't make it edible. This word of wisdom comes from my son Cortlen, who once mistook a tub of strawberry-scented body butter for a cup of yogurt.

One entry per person please. Contest ends Saturday, May 2 at midnight EST. The winner will be announced the following day.

Good Luck! Thanks Body Shop!

Leslie said...

NICE! I'm SUPER MOM! Which sounds pretty accurate... always doing something. hard to find time to justify sitting in one spot for more than an hour (unless it's while folding laundry of course.) when i know there are things that could be done... :)

Latu-Vaki Family said...

Natural mother I am! or at least try to be. I love being out doors and gardening. But the reality of it is that I'm pretty practical. But take every advatage to be outside and enjoy our beautiful world around us. I LOVE the body shop. My favorite store for yummy natural smelling things! My son seems to like the smells too!

Amy said...

I'm a super mom. LOL as if.

Although, if it were an option I'm sure I'd come up with 'mean mom', because I am one! I sat and laughed at my son as he had a tantrum because I wouldn't let him eat string. Am I a meanie, or what?

I'll be expecting my membership card in the mail.

Tutu said...

It seems I'm a Wise Woman....at least according the Body Shop people!!

Okay, so my Mom is rated a SUPERMOM! That totally describes her. She is now recovering from a foot surgery for the THIRD time...on the SAME foot. The woman has been in a cast for 5 years. She takes it all in stride, doesn't complain, and can sell anyone 25 different shoes...Left foot ONLY size 9...

Tracy said...

I'm a SuperMom! Yay! :)

My blog is private, so if I do happen to win, which I never, ever do, my email address is tvo1991atcharterdotnet.

If for some crazy reason you want to check out my blog, let me know and I'll add you...I just had some crazy stalkers so had to limit viewing to protect the innocent (my b/g twins.)

Anne said...

I'm a super-mom. Now if I could just find some super powers for changing diapers...

I am a wise woman...my mama raised me well!

Definatly a Supermom! I guess the 3 under three make me that way - i can carry the twins kicking and screaming out a grocery store door under both arms while holding the hand of the youngest - and ya gotta take it all in stride...

I'm just me... said...

I ended up being a wise mom, looks like there are lots of wise moms here.

Lisa said...

I am a wise woman....hopefully this wise woman was wise enough to take the quiz and win her some super fabulous stuff from the Body Shop

Apparently, like many others, a "wise woman"...hey...at least SOMEONE thinks I'm wise! =)

Were your ears ringing when you posted this giveaway? I was JUST thinking about how much I've missed strolling through Body Shop and a Yankee Candle at the mall. I haven't been since the triplets started walking...or reaching, for that matter! =)

Elizabeth said...

I'm also a wise woman!!! Does that mean that mean I have lots of knowledge to share or I'm just a wise butt??? LOL

Of course I'm "SuperMom." How else would I be able to catch my kids who are bouncing off the walls?

Terri said...

Wise Woman

That was surprisingly painful for me since my mother didn't fit any of those answers. There were no options for "drunk and drugged up"

Erin said...

I am a Wise Woman. Sophistacated, wordly and classy. It's about time someone realized this about me...

Kadi said...

A "Supermom" in need of lovely smelling bath products!
