    Milady Standard Esthetics: Advanced by Milady

    I need to refresh my knowledge of Esthetics.

  3. I’ve been eyeing some more essentials oils to my new collection. I’ve only just started my collection and want to buy more on Amazon! It has changed my whole perspective on how I can use essential oils to take care of my body in a natural way! Also, I’ve been looking for natural and organic baby things because my husband and I are preparing for a baby! I’ve been eyeing the very awesome (but expensive) Ergo Baby Carrier, cloth diapers, glass bottles (i’m planning to breast feed though!), and a few books on natural approaches in raising and caring for my baby such as “Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth” & “Supernatural Birth.” I’d also like to stock up on some RMS beauty products! They are 100% organic makeup and I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect makeup that is natural and chemical and harm-free!! I would love to be picked for the Amazon gift card. I’d use to it to help further my decision to live a natural and organic lifestyle that is sustaining but also healthy, not just for me, but for my entire family too and many generations to come! I’d like to teach them that living a natural & organic life is the way to live freely and beautifully long.

  4. I want one of those lights used to treat seasonal affective disorder. 🙂

  5. Mission Thrift Store is a thrift store business that employees the homeless and down on their luck people. It has a philanthropic and Christian mission and has served to really impact people’s lives and a community. I would use the $500 to make purchases through their affordable Christmas initiative linked above. Their website is below.

  6. I really want to get the Juicer for my health and some of the soup cook books in addition to the supplements and essential oils I have on my wish list… Blessings

  7. Well first I would have to get a pressure canner. I’ve recently started making my own homemade bone stock and am in love with it. But my poor little freezer only has so much room. But my big pantry begs to have its shelves filled with canned food! Oh and the blueberries that we have over the summer, I’d love to can those too! I could go on and on.
    But i dont want to be selfish, I would have to get something for my husband and daughter. Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. I need to replace my Cuisinart food processor. The rubber bands and chewing gum holding my old one together are just not up to the task anymore!

    My husband and I just found out I’m pregnant, so this is just one of the many baby items I would get!

  10. I’m making a baby registry on Amazon, and one of the main things on there is cloth diapers and these covers, called Thirsties!

  11. Barbara Mc / Whenihave Time says:

    KitchenAid mixer and my Amazon wish list is endless!

  12. I would purchase a new car seat for my son. He hates the one he’s in now, and this one looks so much more comfortable.

  13. Kristin S says:
  14. What an awesome giveaway. I would certainly choose this Professional Kitchenaid Mixer. After having a baby and a health scare of my husband, we have both lost weight by totally changing our eating lifestyles. Not only are we pumped about getting slimmer and healthier, but we are showing our 3 kids the good foods they should be fueling their bodies with to keep them healthy. I’m crossing my fingers tightly for the win!

  15. Supplements, coconut oil, organic nuts, ice cream maker, dehydrator, books.

  16. Andrina G says:

    I would buy a treadmill. Thank you so much.


    I am redoing my kitchen in pink colors and I would love this in the pink! 🙂


    Would love this in the color pink! I am redoing my kitchen!

  20. Rachel Reeves says:

    We recently moved, so we need a lot of household things and we were a little short on funds for Christmas so we would probably round out our gifts a little.
    This is an example of the kind of curtains I would buy
    I would buy burgundy though 🙂

    This is just one thing that I would get. I think it would be great to supplement out math.
    I would also love a juicer 🙂

    I currently have my sons toys in a small laundry basket! I’d love a better way to store and (try) to keep his stuff organized!

  30. Stephanie KL says:

    A food dehydrator and a 5 gallon bucket of coconut oil would top my list.

  31. I would buy gifts for family and friends. This year has been a bit more of a struggle financially. It would be nice not to worry about what I was spending and just buy a few extra things for Christmas. Especially a few extravagant toys for my 8 year old.
    If I had any left over I would buy more organic products for the home.

  32. I want an Instant Pot!! I’m giving one away, but I really want one for myself too. 🙂

  33. jessica garue says:

    I would love a kindle fire! As well as something for my three niece/nephews!


    I would buy this pressure canner for preserving healthy food for the family!

  35. A blender would be first – looks like the Blendtec is made to last

    Then I love your idea of a huge bucket of coconut oil. And someone above mentioned a light for seasonal affective disorder . . . oooooo, good idea! So many good ideas here :-).

  37. Ashley Small says:

    If I were to win this gift card I would buy the Nikon D5200 DSLR camera because I have always wanted to start a photography blog and a youtube channel, but I don’t have the camera to do so.


    I would buy lots of kitchen things from my amazon wishlist, including an ice cream maker so I could make healthier ice cream when I’m having a craving, an immersion blender to make homemade soups and such, and a le creuset dutch oven, just because everyone needs one!

  39. Mary Withrow says:

    I am always buying for the children (as any good mom does, lol) but I would to have a Dell Laptop for myself! Happy Holidays everyone may yours be blessed with happiness

  40. We are at a real tough place financially, and it would be SUCH a blessing to have a boost to buy just the normal stuff. Here are a few things I would like:

    I use disposable diapers on my baby for when we’re away from home:
    But mostly I cloth diaper:

    There are lots of things I would LIKE, such as books for our family. We are building a library for our daughter, and also like to continually expand ours, though it doesn’t happen much with funds being so tight.

    Thanks for running this giveaway!

    My 11 year old is growing like a weed. He and my 8 year old need shoes and they’ve gotten into running lately- I’d love to get them some Altra or New Balance shoes for kiddos!

  42. What a fantastic giveaway! If I won I’d probably get a dehydrator for myself and a whole bunch of gluten-free mixes for my dad. Oh and maybe some essential oils for putting in homemade lotions and to help my mom with her migraines.

  43. I REALLY just want these boots and a few other things. i think they are just the cutest thing ever


    I would love a kindle fire for reading and recipe storage.

  45. Not looking to get anything this year as I’ve got enough material items for this lifetime. However, I do want to make an impact in someone else’s life. I’ve chosen St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital to donate to because CANCER SUCKS, especially for children. I will find a way to get my Amazon card in the hands of a child undergoing treatment. I might even blog about it…happy holidays!

  46. Angel Hernandez says:

    I want to start a photography blog, but I dont have camera and I lov ephotography.

    I would like to buy

  47. Amanda Arsenic says:

    Love that you are helping out others by giving this away close to Christmas!!

  48. I would get the Excalibur dehydrator. I really miss having one. The dehydrator I had quit working.

  49. I would REALLY like to have the Kindle Fire HDX. We homeschool, and it would be very helpful to have an alternate source of books/games/etc.

  50. I live in Denver and it’s often too cold for me to go walking. I’d love a treadmill that is compatible with my iPod.

    This one is great:


  51. I would purchase a Big Berkey filter for our home, we have city water and it is terrible and makes me really sick. I would get some smaller things also; some essential oils and kitchen stuff and something for my little one.

  52. Caroline L. says:

    I would purchase loads and loads of Thirsties cloth diapers!

  53. I would get the juicer and essential oils probably would get everything on my Amazon wish list… What an amazing gift (blessing) that would be…

  54. Ashley Hoge says:
  55. I would buy some clothes, shoes, and some essential oils to add to my growing collection! 🙂

  56. Ashley June says:

    Would definitely love to win this! Could by myself new socks, shirts maybe … maybe a dehydrator?? Yay!!

  57. I would buy my family so many gifts. We are book nerds so my sister would get art books, my mama would get cookbooks and my brother would get archaeology books! Plus I will get them each a huge box of Godiva!!!!!! Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  58. Well, since I’m allergic to everything and am quite malnourished and have an extremely sensitive digestive system where I have to blend my food most of the time, I’d like to get the Nourishing Traditions book by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig as well as getting the other 32 items on my wishlist that I don’t bother to ask my parents for since money is tight with my special diet as it is.
