Here's a random fact about me, I like surprises just like everyone else BUT I hate the feeling of not knowing. I mean, surprises are great just as long as you keep me out of the loop and completely unaware because if I get a hunch that something's up, well expect me to squeeze every once of information out you until you tell me what I want to know. Believe me, I have my ways. *evil laugh* LOL! Weird, right? Just imagine how frustrated le BF gets when I screw up his surprise for me -- which happens about half the time he plans for something. I'm that good! :)
I rarely get surprised anymore so to feel the thrill (that comes from opening packages without the slightest clue what's inside) this much time in just the span of 2 weeks feels sooo awesome!
|From DULL TO DOLL|
Promo Code: "CELLINE" to get 5-10% off!
I'm a Dull to Doll affiliate and that's obviously not something new. I usually receive a pair of contact lens each month and then some bonus pairs when I'm hosting a giveaway. I already received my pair for last month but failed to blog about it because my personal lens photographer a.k.a le BF, is busy preparing for his comprehensive exam. So just imagine my surprise when I received 4 new pairs when I'm not even expecting one because of the pending review. And I'm quite sure these are ALL for me because they're all graded -- 2.00 to be exact. Thank you so much, Valerie! <3 I'll start blogging about 'em as soon as le BF finishes his exam. :)
|From AVON Philippines|
A few weeks - if not months - ago, I registered to try Avon's new Wrinkle Fighter serum through The Beauty Junkee's blog. I didn't get any email nor were there any announcements regarding the lucky few who'd get to try their new product before it launches so I really wasn't expecting anything. I seriously had no idea I was among the lucky few who were chosen.. not until I received the package. I'm so excited to try this!
Moving on to the not-so-surprise packages...
Promo Code: "PABC1106" to get 5% off!
Mhisha of MhiShoppe messaged me sometime last month regarding the Japanese Class A extensions she wishes me to feature. And with my untamed medium length hair, how was I to say no? The surprise part is when I told le BF over the phone what came in the mail that day. The conversation went like this,
Me: Hulaan mo dumating today!
le BF: Makeup nanaman?
Me: Nope, dumating na yung buhok ko!!!
le BF: Watda.. ano?!
LOL! Come to think of it, I should've said "hair extensions" not just "hair" as that might sound weird and.. err.. creepy to some. I dunno, I just find it really funny. :)
|From Sample Room|
Ever since IamBrigitte tweeted about the product that removed her pimple marks, I hovered over Sample Room's site until the very moment they launched the Shiseido White Lucent samples. I don't know how many sample were made available to the public, all I know is that in less than 10 minutes, they were all gone! I'm so glad I was able to nab one! For 102pts., I got this White Lucent sample duo. I'm actually thinking about joining their 7 Day Challenge but my pimple marks aren't as visible as they were before I used PMD so I expect very little difference to even consider documenting the before and after. Thus, defeating the purpose of the challenge. :/
|From Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals|
Okay, this wasn't a surprise at all. I was expecting for this package. I was excited to get my hands on my top picks from Krave's new line.. even more so when I saw other bloggers posting their Krave Minerale loot on Instagram. The old Krave products was great as it is but these new products just blew me out of the water. It was surprising how much the brand really improved. If you've seen my photos on Facebook and Instagram, you'll probably have an idea what I'm talking about. :)
|From The Primp Pad|
Lastly, the loot I got earlier from The Primp Pad, a new online shop of Facebook that offers US authentic products at very reasonable prices. I was thrilled when Micaela, the owner, messaged me about a blog sponsorship. Not only that, she wanted me to host a giveaway for my readers too! *surprise! another giveaway!* I'll be launching the giveaway within the week so don't forget to LIKE The Primp Pad's page to get more updates!
That's it for my "haul" post -- if free things could be categorized under haul. :)
I feel really blessed and appreciated right now. Thank you!
*free virtual hugs!*
