The One Where I Give Away a Pampering Pack (dammit).

How can it be only Tuesday?

Already this week I’ve endured the kind of trauma that would reduce most adults to a quivering wreck, cowering in a corner with a towel over their heads.

First up, I suffered the world’s most ridiculous cat-related injury. I tried to avoid tripping over a hungry cat at the top of the stairs yesterday morning, wound up terrifying the cat, who promptly attached himself to my toes by his claws, almost severing one of my toes in the process. It’s TWO DEGREES outside and I’m wearing sandals. I hate my life.

Second up, Flea’s school has massively increased its intake this year and the car park at pick-up time reminds me of the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan, if the soldiers were replaced with Audis and Range Rovers. The car park is a battlefield at pick-up time and last night my car was the weak soldier with the non-speaking role, which means it got squished between two 4x4s and now has matching dents on either side. I hate the world.

So you’d think I’d deserve a bit of pampering, but because I am ALL ABOUT the giving, I’ve decided instead to offer one of you the chance to be pampered – with a selection of goodies from Peachykeen, a website that specialises in organic, natural skincare.  I’ve been given the following products to give away in the form of a rather lovely gift basket:

  • Vanilla Body Butter – gorgeous coconut, cocoa butter and rosehip oil to melt into your skin;
  • Overnight Hand Soother – a must on your bedside table;
  • One pair of white cotton gloves for an extra intensive treatment;
  • Calm Balm for chapped lips and dry bits (works well on nails too);
  • Rosehip Face Oil – food for your skin;
  • Handbag/travel jar of Overnight Night Hand Soother.

All the products are 100% natural and organic, made by hand in Cheshire.

How to Win: 

If you’d like to win this rather lovely basket of products, which is worth around £60, all you need to do is leave a comment telling me why you deserve pampering. Go on, tell me your traumas…

Submit your entry below! The competition closes at midnight on April 9, 2013. A winner will be selected from all correct entries at random, displayed on the widget below, and notified by email. If the winner cannot be reached within one week, entitlement to the prize will be lost and it will be re-drawn and given to another winner.

(Use the Rafflecopter widget to enter, bonus entries available for the usual social media sharing goodness)

    To be honest, i’d love to be pampered (long month of working 6 day weeks, and a snotty cold) but my mum deserves it more as shes a carer for my nan, so i’d pamper her instead 🙂

    I was diagnosed with Crohns in January and am really suffering with the medication I am on now and have had to change my diet to gluten and lactose free – I feel all topsy turvy so I really need cheering up with a pamper!

    (I hope this is open to your US readers) I deserved to be pampered because I am a Mom to 2 boys. One is a teenager and hitting puberty. The need for deodorant was made painfully aware the other day when I thought a skunk was hiding is his room. The younger, prepubescent one, carries a cloud of Axe cologne around all day- enough to give you a raging headache. Help.

    I have injured my ankle for the second time in 10 days. We are all snowed in and I would love to be somewhere hot and sunny. Defo need some pampering.

    26th March 2013 / 10:28 am

    after 2 weeks ago showing my 8 year old daughter how to do handstands lol, the next day I discovered i slipped a disc in my neck and ended up in hospital, and been on painkillers ever since, apparently at almost 40 your not suppose to do handstands my mother said hehe. Pampering I definitely need 🙂

    Hmm, lots of reasons really but in the past 7 days I got flu followed by labrinthitus (sp who know and who cares – it’s dire), then I was puked on (think waterfall style) by my small 6yr old boy more times than I’d care to reference and therefore smell of sick no matter how many times I try to have a bath. Oh and then because my daughter joined in with the illness factor. Add to that last night I miraculously pulled a muscle in my shoulder doing ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING and finally I have no blog of my own to rant on – so have to use yours instead.

    That’s gotta be worth something – surely? *curses life, shrugs with a painful shoulder and walks off into the sunset/grey and fricking cold day*

    Im currently on my 3rd week of working the night shift (staff illness) and then coming home to look after my little boy who is suffering from the sniffles not to mention Daddy with the man flu . A little pampering would therefore go down a treat right now .

    I think I need to be pampered as I am a bride to be who is planning her wedding (due in 6months) and last week I fell out with two long time friends over the joint hen party they were supposed to be ending and my Father-in-law-to-be told my Wife-to-be Natasha to cancel the wedding because he wasn’t happy about it. Was a bad weekend!!

    I don’t really need pampering, but I had a day like yours yesterday battling women in 4x4s. I backed some way down a busy road to let a 4×4 driver through (even though it was my right of way); she didn’t say thank you, so I waved at her and she flicked me the V sign. Then a woman in a 4×4 came from the wrong way round the one-way system in the supermarket car park and stole the space I was about to back into. I then heard her shouting on the phone in the shop moaning about rude people! A pampering session or a tank would be useful for me, please!

    I’d love to win this for my mother in law, Ann. She regularly looks after six grandchildren but always asks if she can do more. She is full of kindness and has made the loss of my own mother last year much easier to bear. I’m very luckily to have such a great lady in my life, but as she always puts other people first so I think it would be great to give her a pampering treat please.

  38. Francesca

    I would love to win this for my mother because she deserves to be pampered more than anyone I know. She raised my sister and I completely on her own on a small salary, while working a full time job. She’s so sweet and giving and willing to do anything for her daughters and she works so hard,

    Probably like the majority of posters here, treats for self are few and far between nowadays. I would like to pamper myself, it might help me relax and go some way to alleviating my frown lines and baggy eyes! The peachy keen packaging reminds me of an apothecary.

  42. Andi G
    26th March 2013 / 10:02 pm

    Hard choice I think I would split it between my Mum who is 66 but still havening to work to pay her mortgage. And my mother in law who is due to o into hospital soon for an operation but is still offering to have her grandchildren whenever she can.

  43. Hazel Rea
    26th March 2013 / 10:03 pm

  62. 27th March 2013 / 10:27 am

    I’d like some pampering to take my mind off DIY hell. I found the baby sucking on a screwdriver yesterday (I’m expecting a call from social services) and I can’t move without tripping over bags of plaster and power tools.

    Well we all deserve a pamper, but no one as much as my lovely friend Hannah who is soon to be 40, has a boisterous 2 year old, & full time physically demanding job, & a husband who won’t let her friends take her away for a spa night!! Boo! If we can’t whisk her away we’ll have to do a home pampering spa night, & this kit would be just peachy!

  75. Nicola Biven

    I am doing this for my fiancée who is expecting our first baby in June but is not having a very good pregnancy due to PGP so deserves pampering.

    A foster carer for many years, full time mum and shattered wife – I would just love to have some me time in my life. We all deserve a little pampering now and then – good luck to all x

  113. Gillian Holmes

  114. Jill Mann
    2nd April 2013 / 10:47 pm

    I was made redundant last month (second time in a year). I have plenty of time to do the pampering, but no money to buy the pampering pack!

  115. Lindy hamilton
    2nd April 2013 / 11:09 pm

    I would love to win to pamer my mum

  116. Louise English
    4th April 2013 / 6:23 am

    My daughter’s been diagnosed with CFS, and is very depressed about it. I would love to give this to her because she deserves the pampering.

  117. Sue Bowden
    4th April 2013 / 7:57 am

    I seem to pamper everyone else apart from myself, so a little TLC wouldn’t go amiss, though I might involve my partner in crime, my daughter, we could pamper each other.

  118. Hannah Ellis
    4th April 2013 / 2:34 pm

    Would love to be pampered as I have fibromyalgia and am always in pain, so some relief would be a god send!!

  119. Miss Tracy Hanson
    4th April 2013 / 6:30 pm

    If it’s OK I am entering it for my Mum. She would love a spa day but can’t afford to send her to one, so pamering her would be good. It’s been a tough 5 years for all the family, but she’s the one that’s held us together when we thought it was all falling apart. Good luck to everyone x

  120. paula
    5th April 2013 / 12:00 am

    I deserve to be pampered as im unemployed and have been searching for work for do long now its really stressful and depressing. Also my partner hasn’t been well for over a year now hes waiting to have an operation, I’ve been acting as his carer too which has been very hard physically and emotionally,its so upsetting seeing him when hes in really bad pain.
    A nice pamper would do me good to try and relax and forget and recharge

  121. helena scanlan

  124. Emma Asante
    5th April 2013 / 1:36 pm

  125. jennie jackson

  126. Jodie Wren

  127. clare d
    5th April 2013 / 3:18 pm

    being a full time mum and looking after my partner and son takes up all my time so never have 5 mins to myself – even thought of booking a spa break and after paying they said they where full so its like not meant to pamper myself! ha!

  128. wendy moore
    5th April 2013 / 4:13 pm

    I deserve to be pampered because I’ve had a really rubbish week at work and could do with some TLC

  129. Alex C
    5th April 2013 / 4:37 pm

    I would love to be pampered because I spend all my time looking after everyone else and tend to always put myself last, like most mums. Would be a lovely little treat to have a little pamper and feel like me and not just “Mum” for a day!

  130. Emma Ellison
    5th April 2013 / 8:49 pm

  134. Maggie Osborn
    6th April 2013 / 10:37 am

    My friend is pregnant with her first baby, and although I’m a full time working mum of a 2 yr old with Pan Hypopituitarism , I’d like to give my friend the pampering set to prepare her for the ups and downs of motherhood 🙂

  136. Rachel S

  140. Lilla Craig

  147. Janet Taylor

    6th April 2013 / 8:50 pm

    My face is dry beyond belief after all this snow and icy weather and nothing is helping me. I need help not just pampering!

  153. Caroline
    6th April 2013 / 11:15 pm

    because I seem to do all the worst jobs in the house – feeding everyone, cleaning up after everyone (human AND animal), administering the nasty-tasting medicines that make me “bad mummy” and being the one who says “no” a lot. I feel like a wicked stepmother in a fairy story sometimes! I need a bit of pampering to remind myself I’m human

  154. Lesley 62
    7th April 2013 / 12:55 am

    I’m a busy mum and foster carer who looks after a disabled toddler. Life is hectic, trying, frustrating and exhausting, but also ultimately rewarding and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’d love the opportunity to get my hands on some lovely products just for me!

  155. Lorna Totton

  159. Sue McCarthy
    7th April 2013 / 7:31 am

  160. Claire Smith
    7th April 2013 / 8:32 am

    I’ve stared at the screen wondering what makes me more in need of a pamper session. I suppose I don’t. I’m a single Mum with two boys who works night. Like millions of other people in the UK.

    Would I like a pamper and make me feel normal again. Oh yes, very, very much. It would give me that much needed confidence.

  209. Angie Hoggett

  214. Gemma Clark

  215. Michelle Becker

    Being a mother takes a special kind of person, one that is loving, caring and totally unselfish. Being pampered is a treat, and a well deserving luxury for any woman, particularly a mother. These gorgeous products would be the perfect gift to make a mother take a little time out for herself for a change, with a skin care range to make her feel beautiful…

  217. Lisa Ellison
    8th April 2013 / 11:48 am

    I need pampering because I have been decorating my living and dining room all by self including 3 doors and all the skirting which needed 4 coats. So the rest of the house has fallen by the wayside and now I need to catch up on that.

  218. Caroline Hammond
    8th April 2013 / 12:42 pm

  219. Tracy Palmer
    8th April 2013 / 1:06 pm

    I don’t deserve it but my Mum does, she is amazing! She works hard and then on her days off looks after my daughter so I can work. She also keeps her household running smoothly and finds time to be my house fairy too. She is amazing!

    Because I don’t really normally have time to spend just on myself, it would be great to just relax and have some time for myself

    Im a mummy to a very grubby,active 3 year old son. So my days consist of digging for worms,painting our hands,kicking leaves and scrubbing crayon wax off of the fire place. I would love for one night to feel like a girlie mummy and bathe in pampering beauty goodies.
