I Won My First Contest!!

I got an email tonight that I won the My Pretty Pink Box October Contest! My prize is the mark's South Beach Flip For It fall color kit (a $20 value)!

"Inspired by trend-setting cities across the globe, South Beach features matte midnight and shimmery taupe shades for eyes and a soft peach shade for cheeks. Flip the palette around for four lip tints, ranging from matte desert rose to shimmery peachy-pink."

How fun does that look? I can't wait to try it out!

Also, this month's Pretty Pink Boxes go on sale this Thursday, November 13th! Last month's boxes sold out in just six days, so if you don't want to miss out, get yours asap. I believe there will be another contest, so who knows, you might be the next lucky gal to win...like me!

Curious to see who'll be participating in this month's box? Just visit MyPrettyPinkBox.com. =)

On another note, I skipped out on the Sephora F&F Sale (or more truthfully, I told myself I wouldn't get anything, then was busy all day and tried to order at 11:55 p.m. but the code expired when I entered it at 12:03 a.m.). Since I received the MAC gift card, I know I'll be picking up more makeup there, so no need for NARS or Smashbox (although I'm still curious to try), and I can always get Philosophy bath stuff whenever I'm at the store.

However, I am really curious about the FRESH line, partly because I saw my roommate buy and stock our shared bathroom with six of their skin and bath products. Believe it or not, I actually love the simplicity of their packaging, and their products just sound...delicious. (Sugar? Hello, I have a sweet tooth...and Rice Sake bath? omg will I want to drink that? hehe)

"Mixing ancient beauty rituals with modern technology, Fresh offers one-of-a-kind products that perform and pamper. They splurge on everything, and skimp on nothing, to create a collection of high quality—and highly effective—makeup, skin, hair, bath and body products, as well as extraordinary fragrances. Be it a brown sugar body scrub, a milk-infused face cream, a soda-loaded shampoo, or a sake-spiked candle, this brand is full of Fresh ideas." -Sephora.comAll of the customer reviews for the products I drooled over – err looked at– raved that they're well worth the price (expensive) and averaged 4 to 4-and-a-half stars. Sooooo if I do get any, you'll be sure to hear a review on it from me! And if you've ever tried any, I'd love to hear your comments.

P.S. My Victoria's Secret bras and panty arrived today! Very rawr...and for less than $20. I also started my Christmas shopping already...yes, I'm one of those people who starts thinking about Christmas before Halloween, and I usually have my shopping done by Thanksgiving. As much as I love being spoiled, I also love giving! Annnnnnnnd I'm hoping I'll have enough ca-ah-ash (sorry, it's Kanye's influence on me, I meant, cash) left over so I can have a contest of my own with some very cool prizes...stay tuned! ;)


  1. For some reason, 34A push ups are too big for me. They don't fill the cup. Do push up and regular demi bras differ on you?

    sucks for me, those two coupons didn't work. I paid 31.

  2. I forgot. Do the bras come with tags? I want to return mine at the store but I forgot if I took off tags or they never came with any! Thanks.

  3. congrats on the win! it looks like a funnn palette!

  4. I will be shopping for christmas on after thanks giving! :) I'm sure they'll have plenty of sale! hahaha!

    Fresh - my friend use that brand. She said its expensive but she likes it. I have their "honey & sugar" sample and i think its ok. Didn't really finished using it.

    Good you resisted the FFsale. OMG I had a hard time resisting it. In the end, I got 3 products. I need to sell my other make up since I don't use them anymore. It would be such a waste for them to just collect dusts :(

    Oh, congrats on winning!! How exciting! :D

  5. PHEW! Thanks. I really thought I took off the tags. I will send it back then. So much for trying to perk these boobs up. haha.

    Congrats by the way!=)

  6. Congrats on the win!!

    I've only ever used one product from FRESH. Their SUGARBath effervescent crystallized sugar cubes for the bath. In Lychee... That stuff smells like lychee heaven!! And even if you don't have a tub to soak, they're shaped like little ice cubes, so it's easy to use as a body scrub too!!

  7. Woooooot She's a Wienerrrrrrr-- er I mean winner!!! Congrats -- seeeeee.... no angry blogging here dammit!

  8. oh congrats to u!! do some looks wit it =)

  9. congrats hun! its so weird that they sell this at my school's book store lol! i cant wait to see you w it!

  10. Hey Hey Hey congrats on winning the contest. Just like you, I've started my Chirstmas shopping already, but I think I'm just about done with it and you know why I'm done with it and it'll be our secret lol. I'll be hosting my very own contest really soon but I don't have enough readers, so I'll have to post it on fb.
