Hourglassy turns five tomorrow. Be one of the first 50 readers to send us a “birthday card”, and you’ll receive a “party favor” of a single use Eucalan sample!


You don’t need to rush to your nearest Hallmark store because a simple email will do, and it doesn’t even have to rhyme. Here are three simple steps to join the party.


Send your email to darlene [at] hourglassy [dot] com with “Happy birthday!” in the subject line. Write your email specifically to one or more of our talented writers, and I’ll forward it to the right person(s). Tell Leah, Leila, Mia or Tina (or even me) about a favorite post she’s written or or how she’s made a difference to you. This kind of encouragement will keep us going for another five years.


Speaking of the next five years, also include what you would like to see from Hourglassy in the future. Any ideas are welcome. If you don’t have one, then make a birthday wish for us instead!


If there’s a specific Eucalan scent you’d like to try (natural, grapefruit, eucalyptus, lavender or jasmine), include it in your email.  There’s no guarantee that you’ll receive your request, but I’ll make my best effort. Also include your United States mailing address. If you live outside of the United States, we would love to receive a birthday card from you, but I can only send you a party favor if shipping costs are reasonable.


Now I hope you’ll indulge me in a little reminiscing. I’ve just spent a weekend poring through the past five years of posts, and here are my favorites (that I’ve written):
