My first thought everyday when I wake up from sleeping is "I hope get a lot of mail today." I love it when I receive a lot of goodies in the mail. I always hope that I'll receive a good freebie or a surprise win. I get so much joy when I see either the UPS truck or Fedex truck parked in front of my house.
I've decided that I'll occasionally post about freebies or prizes I get in the mail. It's a way for me to keep track of what I get. So much has come into my mailbox since I've started signing up for freebies, sweepstakes, and contests. When I have time, I'd like to eventually take a picture of all the goodies I've received in the mail to show that it is possible to win.
My philosophy is it only takes one entry into a contest or sweepstakes. There's been contests where I've only entered once or twice and I ended up winning (ex. iPod Touch). There's also been contests where I've entered daily and I've lost (ex. Coke's Holiday Giveaway where they were giving away 50 DJ Hero/Guitar Hero games.)
On Saturday I received a pleasant surprise in the mail. I opened up a big envelope and found an Ardell Lashes (@ardell_lashes) Starter kit #110. I found out that I won the lash kit from entering the August 2009 Allure Magazine Free Stuff giveaway. (I've received TONS of beauty products from entering Allure giveaways.)
I've never worn false eyelashes before so I look forward to giving Ardell Lashes a try. I've heard having long eye lashes really opens up the eyes.
