Bellas…WOW what a week this has been. My parents are in town, so between entertaining them and being the best Chicago tour guide I can be, I’ve been preparing for the launch of Afrobella Radio. So please forgive me for the lack of fresh posts this week. Can I make it up to you with a giveaway? A special YouTube giveaway, sponsored by Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash?

This prize will only go to ONE lucky winner!

Apologies in advance to my international readers, this is a contest for US dwellers only. A $200 gift card to Spafinder, and $50 worth of Olay products — including Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash — is up for grabs!

Like I said in the video, all you gotta do is leave me a comment right here on the blog, or subscribe to my channel and leave a comment on YouTube – (you could even make a response video! That would be awesome!)

I will leave these opportunity up and running until Monday, and by Monday morning, comments will be closed.

Good luck!!

I have had a really rough couple of months and would LOVE a spa getaway! I would get a facial and a massage and a manicure and a pedicure, I think I need to make more time for myself. I hope you're having a good time with the parents. I'll see mine this weekend. Happy Independence Day!

I have been using Olay products for over a decade now, and I still get regular comments that I don't look my age (by about 12-15 years!), so this is an awesome giveaway, and I hope I'm the one lucky enough to win this! BTW, sorry about the stale popcorn, and I hope your fam enjoyed time with you. See you in the Twittersphere!

I would love to win the spa gift certificate to give to my girlfriend because she has been really stressed lately and could really use the services of a spa. Thank you for the opportunity!

Your review was so glowing that instead of entering your last giveaway, I just went out and bought the Olay 7-signs bodywash! Thanks for the recommendation and the chance to win your 2nd Olay giveaway!

You truly are a ray of sunshine and your approach to life is exactly how I wish I could feel. I would love to win this giveaway! I've been having a tough year. One disappointment after another, I'm sitting here wondering if it's going to get better. Looked up the Desiderata and I'm going to post it on my wall. What a wonderful gift it would be to unwind in a spa. Just one day to immerse myself in being pampered. I would love any type of full body treatment, scrub or massage. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

I bought some of the Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash because of your review and it is amazing! I have very dry skin (I use pure shea butter and I'm still ashy by 4pm). Olay+Shea Butter= No more ash! Thank so much for the recommendation!

Hello Afrobella! As you mentioned on your video blog, rest, meditation, water, exercise, removing stress, and "beauty is as beauty does" are all part of the recipe for staying and looking healthy and happy. I truly know and believe that healthy + happy = beautiful. I'll be 42 years old this year, and life lessons have taught me that you can't truly care for and love others if you don't take some time to care for and love your self. Being able to do both is a beautiful life. I give back to myself with yoga, eating well, laughing, dancing, taking walks, long baths, and being mindful of the people and all the little things in life that make me smile. I don't follow a strict regimen; I just try and listen to my mind, body, and spirit. I also practice patience with myself when I get off balance in any area of my life. I want to age with grace and wisdom, and I want to fully embrace and enjoy the process of getting older. Your site has been a true inspiration for me---I love your articles on beautifully aging Bellas. I've used the Olay Complete lotion for sensitive skin with excellent results, and I'd love to be introduced to the other Olay products with this great gift give away. Like you, I relocated from my home base (Atlanta) to the Midwest (West Lafayette, Indiana) for a new job. As I approach the one-year anniversary of my big move, I’ve been REALLY feeling the need to have a spa getaway to restore myself. My new hometown is small and lacking in great spas, and I’ve literally daydreamed about making the two-hour commute to Chicago for a day at the spa…. No family and work demands...just my deep and grateful sighs. ? If I were selected to receive the Spa giveaway, then I'd put it to good use this summer with a facial and a deep tissue massage at a Chicago spa! Any recommendations? ? Thanks, Afrobella, for all that you share with us!

Love the new site and listened to your radio program. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I will also be sub'ing to your You Tube channel as well. It would be a hoot to win this giveaway! How do I relieve stress? I allot some me time in my schedule and I just relax, no TV, no Internet, no phone. I reflect. I write. It's my therapy.

I'm currently studying for the NY bar, so I have no time to beautify myself! I would love to win the giveaway so I can treat myself to a massage to help ease away the tension caused by countless hours hunched over my computer!

I've just started using the Olay 7-n-1 anti-aging facial cleanser, and it's great... Thanks for the opportunity! I think we all could use a spa-cation!

Please enter me to win the spa date. I want to win because I have never been to the spa. And I am such a people pleaser who have really become sick of not spending time on myself as much as I spend on others and now I am trying to change my ways and be more of who I want to be, bot what others want me to be or how I feel I should be.

I have a friend who is a massage therapist and she says we should all be getting massages once a month! Can you imagine? That seems so decadent but she says everyone needs it.

Oooo weee! Please enter me into the spa giveaway - between chasing after Piggy (who just turned 3!), working full time, and considering grad school, I am realizing that I have to fight for "me" time, and am actively working to claim my happiness. I would get a massage to banish the shoulder pains from my futon (thanks, Ikea :-/) and a facial because I'm terrified that stress is manifesting on my face - I'm too pretty for this! Thanks to both you and Olay for the opportunity to win!

I adore your blog, and loved your video! I normally don't enter these things but since I am so badly in need of some R&R (read SPA TIME...) I thought I'd enter... For the past year I've been working full-time doing leadership development for women, part-time as a domestic violence advocate, and going to school full-time working on my doctorate in education. Needless to say I've been working my poor fingers to the bone, and could use some pampering and relaxation. Thanks for your blog, you are such an inspiration!

I have been trying to locate the body wash, but the search continues. It would be fabulous to go to my first ever spa visit courtesy of you and Olays generosity. Thanks a ton :). You are uber-fab and a BFF in my head lol.
