On My First Online Contest Win

Last week, I was doing my blogwalking and I stumbled on Edelweiza's early Christmas Nivea Giveaway. I'm not really into joining online giveaways and contests but I simply cannot resist the idea of receiving free skin care goodies, especially that these are Nivea products. I have come across a lot of contests in the blogosphere but sometimes I'm discouraged from actually taking part mostly because the instructions are just too complicated for Ina-Tay. I read the rest of her post for the mechanics and to my relief were fairly easy to follow and submitted my entry. I was not really expecting to be among the three winners since she had a total of 491 entries. I reckon there was just a slim chance for me.

Imagine my delight when I opened my email last Saturday after I arrived in Davao and saw that I was among her three winners! This was my very first win in an online contest!!! I scanned the other entries just to make sure that it was really me (there goes the skeptic!). After I was sure there was no other entry with the same name, I immediately sent Edelweiza an email thanking her (and the online contest gods) and sent her my shipping details. She replied and informed me that the prize will be shipped the following day. I woke up this morning, well, it was actually late morning, and I saw on my dresser an LBC pouch. This is really is it! hehehe I tore the package like how I usually open my presents, the goodies are real! 

My very first win!
Here's a photo of the Nivea skin care products I won from the contest. Thanks again to Edelweiza and her  Life of a Breadwinner for giving me a very early Christmas present! Now, who has other contests out there??? :)
