I went years and years without ever winning anything, oh that’s a lie I won $1000 on a radio competition when I was a first year hairdresser.
I had to split it 4 ways with the other girls I worked with but still came out feeling rich because I was a first year hairdresser earning just $127 per week. Growing up though I didn’t win running ribbons or talent shows, I couldn’t even win at bingo when my nan took me along to her Avon afternoons.
These days though I totally feel like a winner. Since I’ve been spending ALL my time on social media because…umm, I’m a blogger… I’ve been winning cool gear! Yeah, the saying is true, ‘you gotta be in it to win it’.
I’ve won jewellery, vouchers, home decorator pieces, even a years supply of Elizabeth Arden foundation!! Last week I won a gorgeous ‘Glasshouse candle’ pack and it’s too pretty not to snaps some pics and share.
This is a special limited edition ‘Birds of a Feather’ triple scented candle that has a feel good factor because some of the dollars from the sale of this range go to the Jane McGrath Foundation to help fund breast care nurses for breast cancer patients. Good huh.
I think this paragraph from the side of the box sums it up perfectly…
Flock together in support of a worthy cause. Birds of a feather pink sorbet is a summery blend of grapefruit, lemon and watermelon. Like a refreshing treat on a warm afternoon surrounded by friends.
Pretty perfect huh? Oh and along with the candle was a hand cream and hand wash. The wash is in my kitchen and the cream is on my coffee table as a reminder to soften my old hairdresser hands.
Did I mention the neon pink? Swoon!
Last week I had a birthday, Mother’s Day and walked in the Mothers Day Classic. Oh and I had breast cancer so this candle pack is just pretty bloody perfect for me don’t you think? Every time I light the candle it won’t only smell amazing, it’s going to make me feel good too!
Have you ever won anything on Facebook or Instagram? What’s the best thing you’ve ever won?
