Four years have vanished and two kids have appeared since I started to "Get Carried Away."
At first it was a hobby, a digital scrapbook since I have no patience for Cricuts or borders or anything that makes real scrapbooks look cute.
Then I met some women who blogged about THINGS or topics or products and I kinda started to care. Okay, I renamed my blog and bought a URL. That inspiration led me to OC Family, where I've happily contributed for over a year here and most recently here.
And now, it's official.
Bath and Body Works has created a scent based off my blog.
So maybe the super awesome people at B&BW didn't exactly contact me or ask my opinion or pay me any royalties, but I'm just going to assume that their entire market research team reads this blog over lunch and finds me so witty and rad that they named their newest creation after my little creation.
No so far fetched or vain, right?
At any rate, I bought a slew of it (cause let's face it- don't all the best scents go away?) and I want to share some with you.
Leave a comment below before next Sunday October 2 at 11:59pm and you could win a "Carried Away" goody basket with spray, lotion, body wash and perfume valued at over $50! I will pick one winner at random.
And if you're looking for a great blog name, try the reverse method and name your blog after one of their over 100 fragrances. I'm thinking about finding a way to use "Blue Elixir."
Despite the fact that it sounds like this was totally sponsored by Bath & Body Works, it wasn't. This is all me. I thought about contacting them to sponsor after I wrote this post, but as my mom told me, "Why would they buy the cow when you're giving the milk away for free?" Inspirational, I know.
