Legal notice: Apparently, there are "legalities" related to sweepstakes (yes, this is a sweepstakes, not a contest), contests in which the winner is drawn at random. The law requires many official rules, and the legalese on blog giveaways must include them. For those who love too much information, here are more rules for this "contest" - those that aren't stated above. In the future, I will probably publish a page just for sweepstakes rules.
  • No purchase is necessary - you can't buy things here anyhow!
  • Entrants must be 18 years of age or older.
  • This retail worth of each contest prize will be stated here or in the contest feature.
  • The number of eligible entries received will determine the odds of winning.
  • Should one occur, a dispute or mistake will be handled to ensure the winner is reasonably happy.
  • I will publish the name the winner used in the comment required to enter. Full names not disclosed in the comment will not be publicized.
  • The winner releases Best Things in Beauty for all liability by providing a mailing address. That means you can't blame me if you don't like it or you break your leg getting it out of your mailbox.
  • You can always find Charlestongirl by e-mail at
  • This contest is regulated in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • Void where prohibited by law.
  • Can you even believe my need to publish all these rules?
