This Year is Off to a Great Start

This month has brought a few great things my way already!  You may remember from this post, that I entered a sweepstakes to win a $100 Talbots gift card from the Vogue Influencer Network.  I found out that I actually won and received my gift card yesterday!

Guess who’s going to be shopping this week?  I’m super excited to get some new clothes and shop a retailer that I have never been to before.  It has been beyond incredible to be a part of the Vogue Influencer Network!

A couple of weeks ago, I won a gift from Ulta on Twitter.  I received this gift in the mail recently:

Of course, I will post a review when I have had a chance to try this nice little pampering gift.

I also won a gift from Walgreens on Twitter too, but I’m not exactly sure what it is and haven’t received it yet!  I’m telling you these things not just to toot my own horn but to let you know that people do win these things.  You just have to get involved!  If you are not on Twitter, then I advise you to get going on it.  I find Twitter to be an excellent resource to find new blogs, meet like-minded people, find out about new products, gain new blog followers, and WIN STUFF.  Remember when I won these bangles on Twitter?

Oh! I also won this Perfect BB SPF40 from 3LAB Skincare (retail: $95.00)  in late November:

It came wrapped in this oh-so-lovely packaging:

I don’t know that I have grasped how to wear this yet, or if I even “get” BB creams at all but I have been giving it a go!  A review is possibly coming soon, we’ll see.

Anywho, brands hold Twitter giveaways almost daily these days, so start following your favorite brands and retailers so you can get in on the fun, too!

Have you won anything on Twitter lately?  Do you participate in Twitter parties?  Have you won any sweepstakes or giveaways?  Please leave a comment and share your thoughts with us!

    Congrats! You are a lucky woman!!!

    I won a cell phone from Virgin Mobile, colored contacts from Socialite Dreams, and a bunch of special effect polishes (from Holland!) from Fashion Polish. Plus I’m involved with Influenster so I just got their Holiday Vox Box (which was awesomesauce).

    Here’s to more winning in 2012!! 😀

      Thanks!! Nice winnings yourself 🙂 Yes, I have been loving Influenster as well, did you win any of the Brand Challenges? I was hoping to score one but no luck. Definitely up for more winning in 2012 🙂

    Lucky 🙂 I had hoped to win the Talbot giftcard. I also like it when items are wrapped nicely it just adds so much more to a gift.

      Yes, I do love special wrapping that’s why I had to get a photo! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you to win the next Vogue sweeps! 🙂

    Yay!!! Congrats to you on the winning the Talbots gift-card. What a fantastic way to start off the weekend! You’ll have to post your final purchase and show us all what you bought 🙂 Oooo…3 Lab is one of my favorite lines! Whenever I’m at Nordstroms replenishing my Kiels products, I always ask them to throw in a few 3 Lab samples!

      Thank you Cara! I can’t decide if I want to take advantage of those online deals right away or go in-store to try on some things. Decisions, decisions! Kiehl’s has always been on my wishlist, what are your favorite products?

        Oh, boy! Those are tough decisions . . . I do like the convenience of online shopping — not to mention the fabulous deals they offer that often aren’t valid for in-store purchase–though, the let down of receiving a much-anticipated shipment of clothes, only to realize 1 out of 5 things fit, is dismally disappointing 🙁 Unless it’s shoes or accessories, in-store is usually the way I go. I have funky proportions, though. If I live to see the day when a pair of jeans fits perfectly, that is the day I will seek out the highest mountaintop and declare my joy with their world. 🙂

        Kiels is such a great line! I honestly think you can’t go wrong with anything you purchase. *Also, if you have a boyfriend/husband, the men’s line is just as wonderful. I have my Hubs well-stocked 🙂 For me, the Midnight Recovery Oil is just amazing. The decadency lasts all night and you wake up literally glowing. LOL. I also recommend their line-reducing serum, and oil-free moisturizer. 🙂

        Happy shopping!
