My First Blog + Birthday Giveaway

Hi, my dear readers!

May 7th is a special day! It's my birthday! There'll be lots and lots of exclamation marks in this post. Ha!

I'm pretty excited, that's why. There are a lot of changes that happened this last year.

For one thing, I had an unexpected, but rewarding, career shift. All my life I slaved in a 9-to-5 desk job and then last year, I discovered online freelancing! I was lucky that my current client was very generous, not just with the monetary aspect, but also with training and mentoring. When I started working remotely, all I have is ESL (English as Secondary Language) training, a bit of MS Office, and a LOT of determination.

I redicovered blogging again. I had a previous blog called Fickleinpink back in 2008-2010 but I stopped when my family discovered too late that my mother had Diabetes II. I stopped because I was busy with "real life", so to speak. I guess when blogging gets into your blood, you can't get away from it anymore :)

So now, I'm back to my feet and re-started blogging again. And I realized, we need to CELEBRATE!

I'm hosting this giveaway from April 21st to May 7th Midnight. I will announce the Winner in the morning May 8th. Shipping is on me. 

All you have to do is LIKE my Facebook Page, Follow me on Twitter, Tweet this giveaway (optional) and Leave a post comment (optional). 

Easy, huh? You have to do this via the Rafflecopter link below though, so it would be easy for me to draw the lucky winner ;)

This is open to Philippine residents only.

A closer look...

  1. Asian Secrets Benkoang Whitening Soap with Olive Oil 100g- I'm a fan of Asian Secrets so I want to share this to one of my readers. Asian Secrets moisturizing soap contains bengkoang or Yam Bean Extract to whiten the skin and can be found in the islands of Sumatra and Java. It also contains olive oil to moisturize the skin. 
  2. Asian Secrets Lulur Facial Scrub 50g- It has lulur beads, originally used for Indonesian brides to smoothen and whiten their skin. It is best to exfoliate when your face is still dry. It is so gentle that these fine lulur beads dissolves when used on wet face. 
  3. Skin Food Water Berry Gift Set (Toner and Emulsion) - I got this well-known Korean brand from my March Saladbox. I loved the Black Pomegranate Premium Kit so I'm sure you will enjoy this, too! 
  4. Nivea Protect & Bronze 200ml - Perfect for summer. I love this brand, too! Nivea Sun & protect supports our own natural melanin production to get the perfect and even tan this summer. 
  5. iWhite Peel-off Mask 8ml - It's a peel-off mask that removes skin impurities. Good for single use. The active ingredients are Mulberry Root Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, and Aloe Vera Leaf Extract. Besides, don't you love the packaging? Cute :)
  6. iWhite Nose Pack 3.5ml - iWhite is also a Korean brand and it has the same formulation as the peel-off mask.
  7. iWhite Aqua Mousturizing Cream 6ml - It's a water-based moisturizer and it is non-greasy. It contains Mulberry Root Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, and Green Tea Leaf Extract.
  8. Avon Foot Works in Lavender 125ml - This lavender-scented foot soak soothes tired, achy feet.
  9. Digests Probiotic+Fiber Supplement 10 sachets - I got two boxes of these from my previous Sample Room haul and I want to share one with you. This helps digestion and prevents constipation.
  10. Watsons Exfoliating Body Scrub in Strawberry Citrus 250ml - The main ingredients are walnut shell powder, aloe vera, and shea butter.
