In most of the country — not here — summer means sandals and flip-flops. We’ve still got a month or more of naked toes. That’s why you need this week’s giveaway.
It’s a kit from The Body Shop that contains almond-oil hand and nail cream, nail clippers and half a dozen nail files, packaged in a neat little carry-all that’s cloth on the inside and bamboo on the outside.
The whole thing folds up to be about the size and shape of a No. 10 envelope. Once you’ve used up the contents, the kit would be a good way to package cosmetics or toiletries for a weekend trip.
I wish I had a photo, but my staff photographer is indisposed. (Translation: My niece, who has been taking pictures for me, is out of town.)
Full disclosure: Technically it’s a manicure kit. But perception is reality, and since I initially perceived it to be a pedicure kit, then it is a pedicure kit, right?
No matter what you call it, it’s free to the person whom the random number generator loves this week.
If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave an additional comment for each entry so that you’ll be fairly counted.
The deadline is 9 p.m. PDT Monday, Aug. 2.
And can anyone tell me how it got to be almost-August?
