A Very Merry Christmas: Yuletide Giveaway

on November 30, 2010

Since it’s during the Christmas season when the spirit of giving is most evident and felt, I think it’s timely to hold another contest. In cooperation with the House of Flair, Pieces Of A Wunderkind’s Mind [yes, that’s my blog’s complete name ;-)] will be handing out three sets of goodie bags to lucky readers and followers. Consider it as my way of giving back to you, dear readers, and as an early Christmas present from HOF, as well.

House of Flair is an e-commerce website that carries US brands that are not locally available. Products from Victoria’s Secret, Sephora, Amazon.com, Ulta, and other stores that are usually unobtainable to Filipino shoppers are what the House of Flair offers. You can practically pre-order anything from any US website and HOF would gladly bring them right at your doorstep. If you think that’s not convenience and accessibility in the palm of your hands, I honestly wouldn’t know what else that could be.

You might be wondering what’s in store for you. Don’t worry, I wouldn’t keep you guessing. So without further ado, ladies and lady-lovers, here are the prizes at stake:

Set 1 — HOF Discount Card 15%, White Victoria’s Secret thong in Medium, MAC Eyeshadow in Cobalt, Kate Somerville Deluxe Sample Protect SPF 55 Serum Sunscreen

Set 2 — HOF Discount Card 15%, French Navy Victoria’s Secret thong in XS, MAC Lipglass in Quicktease, Smashbox Deluxe Sample Photo Finish Targeted Pore & Line Primer

Set 3 — HOF Discount Card 15%, Silver Sucker Victoria’s Secret thong in Medium, MAC Powder Blush in Shy Pink, Kat Von D Deluxe Sample High Voltage Eye Primer

Posh pieces? Indeed! So why hesitate to have a go at it when the mechanics are really simple. Here are the things to need to do:

1. Add the House of Flair as a contact in your Multiply account.
*Note: For those who do not have a Multiply account , you may LIKE them on Facebook, instead, by clicking here.
2. Follow me in Networked Blogs. You can do that by simply clicking β€œPieces Of A Wunderkind’s Mind” on the badge in my sidebar or by clicking here.
3. Write a short note/journal/blog telling me what your favorite product or album in HOF’s site is and why. Your entry should include the product’s name, the album where you found it, and your explanation on choosing it.
4. Go back to this post after doing steps 1-3 and, in the comments section, provide me with the link of your entry so I could validate. Make sure that your entry would be visible to EVERYONE. Without this step, you will not be included in the raffle [since I won’t be able to verify] so please link back. ONE ENTRY PER PERSON ONLY.
5. Promo period is from December 6, 2010 until December 15, 2010. Entries written outside the promo period [meaning, BEFORE the 6th and AFTER the 15th] will be deemed invalid.
6. The winners will be chosen via Random.org and will be announced here through a blog post on December 16, 2010. A participant can win only once. The winners will also be notified via e-mail.
7. HOF will be sending the prizes to the winners’ addresses for free. I will have to contact the winners for their shipping details so please do not forget to leave your email address in the corresponding area in the comments section.
8. Prizes are authentic, brand new, and bought directly from the US. They will be shipped by HOF in excellent condition.
9. Promo is open to all Philippine residents only.

Tip: It pays to read carefully and understand the instructions well.

You have ample time to browse through HOF’s site and write that entry. Consider this post an early contest announcement. The people behind the House of Flair and I can’t wait to play Santa Smiley this Holiday Season. We are genuinely happy to grant some of your earliest Christmas presents this year. I believe that life is about giving — work on that, and the rest will be taken care of. Smiley

What are you waiting for? Check out the House of Flair now and blog away [on the 6th]! πŸ˜€
