While living in Chicago, I really got
into contesting & sweeping.
I would look for online contests,
mostly through local radio stations,
and enter to win prizes that I actually wanted.
Right away I started winning movie & concert tickets,
and I loved it!
So I entered some more contests,
and won some more,
including tickets to the Sweet Sixteen
& Chicago Bulls tickets.
It was fun, free
(don't enter a contest if it makes you pay),
it makes you feel good to win something,
and it makes you feel good when you get
a prize in the mail!
I don't do much contesting anymore,
mostly because it takes up time
that I'd rather spend
doing other things,
but I still enter a contest now & then
(although I prefer to find them
hosted on blogs rather than radio stations
Anyway, right before we moved to CO,
I won a contest sponsored by Mary Kay
& Blogher, and today my surprise prize package arrived!
Since I had no idea what they would be sending
I was pretty excited to open the box,
and I was not disappointed.
The pack included lipstick, mascara, face wash,
eye makeup remover, lip exfoliant & lip balm,
but I think I'm most excited for the multiple moisturizers
because living in Colorado = dry skin.
Yay for the little things that help brighten a day.
