I’ve never been a big one for giveaways – it always seems too much like doing someone’s PR for them. The basis I’ve always worked on my website matchingfoodandwine.com (gratuitous plug) is to find something I’d really like myself and twist someone’s arm to offer it. (At the time of writing it’s a case of Beaujolais and a gourmet hamper which is a great prize for any wine lover.)
But on a sleep blog who’s going to give away a bed? Or a night at the Four Seasons? (Well, you never know … )
However I did find something I really liked from a selection of sleep-inducing products I was sent by Neal’s Yard Remedies. No, it wasn’t the stress and sleep tincture which, while effective, looked and tasted a bit like pond water – not that I make a habit of drinking it – but a pot of the most heavenly scented Beauty Sleep Body Butter with which to anoint yourself before bed, a practice to which I’ve become addicted.
This won’t necessarily apply to you but it reminded me of being in chapel when I was at convent school (in a good way) due apparently to the fact it contains frankincense along with clary sage, cypress, patchouli and ylang ylang. The ingredients are Soil Association certified and 85% organic.
As we’re a new blog and they were feeling generous Neal’s Yard Remedies has offered to give away 5 pots worth £22.50 each to five lucky old readers. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one is write to us at secretsofagoodnightssleep AT gmail DOT com with Neal’s Yard Body Butter in the subject line (I’m crossing fingers this won’t get caught up in the spam filter) by 11.59pm on August 15th This one’s only for UK residents I’m afraid and only if you don’t have any connection with the blog which means neither Patsy or I can win it. (Sorry, Patsy.) We need your name and address, obviously. And only one entry per person.
If you’d like to be on our mailing list just put NEWSLETTER PLEASE at the end of the email. We don’t have regular newsletters going out yet but we will shortly. At least that’s the plan . . .
