Mailbox Monday - 2 weeks worth of mail! My empty envelope was replaced!

This post will cover 2 weeks of mail. For those who didn't know, I used the plane tickets I won from My Coke Rewards to fly to Canada to see a Backstreet Boys concert in Winnipeg, Canada. I should have my review on my trip posted here soon.

I think my mail knew I was on vacation because I didn't receive much these past 2 weeks.

In my Mailbox Monday post from last week I wrote about an empty envelope I received that was supposed to have a bottle of Sally Hansen's Nail Nutrition Green Tea + Olive Growth inside from Allure magazine's June 3rd, 2010 giveaway.

I e-mailed both Coty (the company responsible for mailing out the prize) and Allure magazine and told them about what happened. To my surprise, they quickly responded to my inquiry. They sent me a replacement AND coupons to use for more Sally Hansen products. I thought that was really nice of them.

Here's what I received from August 9th to August 14th:
