FOUR beauty giveaways! Enter by April 6!

Well, I was hoping that by now I'd get it together enough to show you some of the things I've knitted and sewed baby and otherwise, but it looks like today isn't that day. I am working on some nursing tops and I plan to try to make a pattern that I can actually share with the world from it!

So my laziness (or perhaps distraction) is your gain. I'm introducing FOUR more giveaways. Hopefully by the time I post the winners, I'll have other things to show you, too! To enter, leave a comment after this post by April 6 (that is the last day to enter) and be sure to include your name and email or another way for me to contact you if you win. Detailed info on the giveaways is below. Good luck!

Giveaway #2: Sothys Spring Renewal package

Let’s face it – although Spring has just arrived, the warm weather is more than a few weeks away. And unfortunately, the pale skin trend that has captivated so many Twilight fans is starting to fade. Still, there is no reason why we should wait in vain for the sun to come out. While the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore may not agree, a healthy year-round glow does not require hours at the tanning salon!

Legendary skin care company Sothys offers a luxurious product line that brings out the warm tones in your skin. The Cellu-Guard® line improves skin tone and firmness even when the weather is most drab. Sothys’ mission in creating their new products was to create a simple approach to year-round healthy color. Let the remarkable results of these tantalizing products speak for themselves.

· Face and Body Self-Tanning Cream: Within a few hours, this non-tinted cream formula gives a natural, sublime and long-lasting tan to the skin. Its velvety texture is enriched with moisturizing ingredients for a supple look and a radiant complexion. The lightweight formula glides smoothly over the skin, ensuring a streak-free application every time. Price: $38 (5 fl. oz.).

· Soins Soleil Cellu-guard Age-defying tinted care: A lotion carefully formulated to protect the skin from aging and to help retain suppleness. A tinted texture gives a sublime tanning effect upon application. Price: $44 (1.7 fl. oz.)

For seamless color, be sure to exfoliate your skin completely before applying a sunless tanner. Before applying, thoroughly rub lotion into your elbows, knees, ankles, and any other extra dry areas to balance out the color. Apply the cream evenly as you would a moisturizer. In just a few hours, you'll look like you spent the weekend in the tropics, without risking damage to your skin.

Giveaway #3: Karite hair products

One of the biggest beauty conundrums that woman face is how to keep frizzy and unruly hair soft, silky and manageable. Women often spend hundreds of dollars and waste hours of time testing the latest styling tools or expensive frizz-defying products, which claim to restore health, sleekness and manageability.

A new salon treatment formulated with a popular Brazilian ingredient, Keratin, offers women a different way to manage their frizz, but at a very high cost, and is therefore not suitable for everyone. With this in mind, Brazilian beauty company nuNAAT, developed an affordable new product line, which incorporates similar powerful ingredients found within Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest to restore shine and silkiness and revitalize dry and damaged hair at a fraction of the cost.

The Karite Special, an intensive treatment for restoring dry and damaged hair, is rich in Shea Butter, which revitalizes the hair’s capillary fiber leaving hair soft and silky as well as luxuriously fragranced.

* Karite Creamy Shampoo
o Formulated with Shea butter, one of the richest emollients available, the Karite Creamy Shampoo gently cleanses while restoring shine and silkiness to dry and damaged hair. Price $6.49
* Karite Conditioner
o Nourishes, protects and moisturizes dry and damaged hair while restoring elasticity, moisture and silkiness. Price $6.49
* Karite Intensive Mask
o Penetrates deep into the hair shaft to nourish and provide a layer of protection from further damaged caused by extensive styling or UV rays. For best results, use weekly by massaging a generous portion into your hair and leaving on for 20 minutes before rinsing. Price $6.99
* Karite Anti-Frizz
o With its irresistible fragrance, Karite Anti-frizz is a heat-activated, leave-in product for all hair types that helps keep your hair soft while preventing frizz throughout the day. Price $7.49
