Haul: New Year, New Free Stuff

Hi, my friends! Blogging through my phone now 'coz my laptop's all messed up at the moment. All my files were lost - all, including my blog to-post pictures. Super bummer but life must go on. I'm just hoping that there is some way to recover 'em all.

Anyway, last month I joined three online contests, and... I won two out of the three!

Here's what I got :-)


First contest I joined this year was Snoe's My Snoe Christmas holiday contest, where I had to submit a holiday look featuring my fave Snoe products.

My entry:

Then I joined Etude House's Flaunt Your Nails contest, where I had to post a pic of my fave EH nail polish.

My entry: 


I didn't win but at the end of the contest period, I still felt proud of my entry 'coz it garnered the most likes even though the contest itself wasn't a liking one. 

Lastly, I joined Caronia's January promo, where I had to submit an original nail design inspired by a New Year symbol. I chose polka dots.

And... I was one of the winners!


Here are my prizes. Claimed them the other day.

From Caronia...


12 shades of nail polish, a nail care set, a notepad, a sticker, a mousepad, and (the best part) a salon gift certificate worth P1500.

I already have most of the shades in my own nail polish collection so I might just give the extras away. The mouse pad is another extra - I got one already a few months ago when I won their October promo . What I am really excited about is the salon GC. I badly need a salon makeover - a salon anything, actually. I haven't stepped in a salon in what feels like a very long time. Haha ;-)

And, from Snoe...



The Oil for All Hair and Skin Beauty Oil which is 100% pure argan oil :-) So excited to use this! Actually, I've been curious about argan products for a long time now. My hair is excited now, too :D


Thank you so much to Snoe and Caronia for these! Looking forward to more contests and promos! Nagiging suki na ako sa office ng Caronia! Hahaha

Try and join online contests, too! You might just win really awesome prizes :-) In case you do not win in one, remember that there are LOTS of other contests out there! There's no harm in joining. :-)

(Man, blogging through my phone is sooo ugh. I am drowning in HTML tags here. Can you recom a really, really good blog app for Android?)
