blog birthday giveaway | kimberlyloc x rachel’s plan bee jasmine gift sets

kimberlyloc x rachel's plan bee jasmine body oil gift set

I did a lot of questionable things when I was 24.

  • Dated weird guys.
  • Slept four hours a night.
  • Took tequila shots.
  • Started a random blog to ramble about things I liked.

Seven years later, I find that only one of these things has persisted.

I can’t shake it. It won’t die. Because I still love it.


And that’s blogging about things I like. Mostly beauty things. Maybe other things soon.

Telling stories to and creating relationships with other people who kinda, sorta like the same things I do brings me a sense of joy I can’t question.

And this 7-year-old blog (her birthday was January 12!) has been the catalyst for all of that — and so much more.

As a thank you to everyone who has been rambling along with me since 2010 (or whenever you found this place!), I’ve teamed up with Rachel’s Plan Bee to give away seven (7!) of our special kimberlyloc x Rachel’s Plan Bee Jasmine Gift Sets.

(We tucked away seven of these to celebrate you — these sets are no longer available for purchase.)

It’s a gift to be able to share one amazingly random thing that came out of my seven years of blogging: a skincare collaboration with a genuine brand that shares my appreciation for “the little things” in life.

Because sometimes, those random little things in life are the ones that bring you the most unexpected, everlasting joy.

    Congrats on 7 years! I dealt with dry legs for years because I hate the feeling of lotion! So happy scrubs and oils became popular.

    • Thank you, Meagan! Agree with you on the texture of lotion … sometimes it’s just not enough. But, gosh, do I love body oils … and scrubs … and butters … give it all to me! :) Good luck!

  • Happy blog birthday! What a lovely giveaway. I always get dry legs so I love using body scrubs all over the get rid of dry skin and oils are perfect for winter as they’re so moisturising! I hate the sticky feeling that some body moisturisers can have so oils are a winner for me! x

    • Thanks, Amber! This winter has been brutal for my skin. Give me all the butters, oils, mists and more :) Good luck!

  • cheri

    I’m addicted to body and face oils, would love to try this. Keep up the good work.

    Congrats on seven years! I was so sad to miss out on the body polish – fingers crossed!

  • Thank you very much! I hope you love Rachel’s Plan Bee as much as I do. Her line is affordable, luxurious and absolutely genuine. Your dry skin will drink it up!

  • Michele

    Happy 7th! I really love body oils. Seems like they moisturize so much better than lotions. I haven’t really gotten into the scrubs yet. I always feel like they make my shower too slippery and I’ll break my neck! But your skin feels so soft after using them. Have to get back into them…

    • Thanks, Michele! Yes, please be careful with the scrubs. I love them because it’s an extra little “me” step, especially when I’m showering at night and don’t have to rush around … and can be careful + clean up my tub quickly!

  • Chee89

    Love being able to slow down at the end of a long day with body oils and scrubs. Keeps the stress down and the acne at bay.

    So fun the way you started this post! Congrats on seven years of blogging and figuring out how to get more sleep (please tell me how!). The weird guys and tequila shots I’m sure mean you have some great stories ;-)

    • Hehe, thanks! Fun to take a little walk down memory lane :P

      As for sleep … nightly struggle. I try to wind down as early as possible, but I am just such a night owl. Trying to read actual paper (vs. a phone or iPad) in bed to help get sleepy.

  • alex robertson

    Happy blogiversary! My favorite thing about body oils and scrubs is that is my mommy time. I feel like a new woman after a little shower and self pampering!

    Happy birthday! I have a lot of trouble with my skin and an allergy to some common preservatives. The game was changed when I discovered body oils! I love the way my skin feels after a good (preservative free) scrub and when I use oils!

  • Nat

    Magic number 7! I would be so excited to win this! Oils are amazing because they aren’t watered down and they just skin right in and nourish the skin and keep it moist all day. I love everything jasmine and this duo sounds amazing. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Rachel’s Plan Bee is the best exfoliator I’ve ever tried! The combination of the sugar with her oils leaves my skin more moisturized than any other exfoliator I’ve used. Plus the Coconut Beach scent is transformative :) Happy Birthday! :)
