The stars were aligned or something….

Because in the last 2 weeks I won, not one, but TWO giveaways!!

I enter contests online because I figure “why not!” Whenever I’m at the Carrot I always pick up the free magazines by the cash like Vitality and Tonic. The last time I was reading Tonic, I noticed that they had a contest on their website so I figured I should check it out and enter. And then, just before my vacation I got an email to say that I had won!! They said the gift bag would come by courier, so I arranged to have it delivered when I got back. I couldn’t believe it when our receptionist called me on Monday to tell me the bag had arrived and I found this at the front desk:

SANY1994
It was like Christmas for me. 

It was filled to the brim with natural/organic body care from companies like Vysada, Awaken my Senses (which I had just read about on Vanessa’s blog!) and Abundance Naturally, supplements from femMED, Global Botanicals,  and Zenbev, as well as things like massages (yes, plural), microderabration, a facial, eco-friendly cleaning services and a voice lesson, all in a beautiful bag that was made in India. I am still in shock. Joey and I are having way too much fun trying everything out and I’m looking forward to booking some appointments in the next few weeks for massages and other goodness!

I have to say a big thank you to Tonic Toronto for picking me! Be sure to enter their draw online because they are picking 2 winners each month. What do you have to lose?

When I thought things couldn’t get better, I found out that I had been chosen by Inspirational Works to attend Byron Katie’s workshop in October! If you are not familiar with Byron Katie, you can read more about “The Work” on her website or you can read more about her in Meghan’s 3 part interview. Thanks so much to Meghan for running the contest and to Inspirational Works for choosing me! I can’t wait to do The Work and share some of my new knowledge here on the blog and I think it will align with Weight Watchers as well!

Hi Ashley, we heard you won the basket and when I stopped by your blog to see your comments I noticed the mention of Crohns.
I thought you might be interested to hear from another of our happy customers and the relief she is getting from our buttermilk. It might work for you?

Comments: Hello,

Thank you sooooo much for the Organic Buttermilk.
I just bought 4 quarts of it last week in desperation for my severe IBS attacks. I drank 1 quart per day. I started the morning off with a large glass on an empty stomach. I slept like a baby and the very next day my cramps, bloating, severe abdominal pain, acid reflux etc., greatly subsided.

I have not had this type of IMMEDIATE results since before the late 60's after which our dairy products became such poor quality....that conventional buttermilk no longer helped me.
I have posted my results with your Organic Buttermilk & link to your site, on Earth Clinic.com.
Healthy, natural dairy products are vital to our health. Thank you for bringing back our VITAL, NATURAL DAIRY PRODUCTS.
Keep up the GREAT WORK!

God Bless YOU!
