Year-End Giveaway

As previously stated, I will be ending this fruitful year with another treat. Aside from being a year-ender, my next contest would be the second part of my blog’s Yuletide Giveaway [my thank-you gift and Christmas present in one for your continued support]. A new set of swag, courtesy of Planner People, is up for grabs.


I wrote about Planner People here and shared with everyone how awesome their planners are. Incidentally, the honchos behind Planner People happen to be the very people who created Notebooks, Etc., an Etsy store whose products I’ve been lemming over the past months. That’s one amazing discovery I learned just a couple of weeks ago.


This was a collage I made and uploaded in both my FB & Twitter a few months ago. It shows all the lovely blank journals I’ve been lusting over, most of which are from Notebooks, Etc. [Click to enlarge]


Notebooks, Etc. is the name of the e-commerce site that was the brainchild of Regina Silva. On that site, handmade paper goods designed and illustrated by her are being sold for unbelievably low prices. Local artists like Reg should be patronized and works of such talent should be promoted/endorsed. Take a peek at her quirky designs here.


It’s contest time!!! Of course you would love to know what you’ll be vying for, wouldn’t you? I have no plans of prolonging the suspense here so let me now show you what one lucky reader could receive in the mail by the last week of December.



A set consisting of a 2011 planner, a blank journal, and button pins [all painstakingly designed by a fellow Filipino] is this promo’s loot. Aren’t they cute? Big YAY for Planner People and Notebooks, Etc. !!!


Under The Sea – Set of Three 1.75 inch Button Pins that retails for $4 in Etsy.com


a 4×5 notebook — double-loop spiral and side bound, containing 50 blank, unlined leaves


a 2011 hardbound planner in Bear design [Click here to know more about this planner]


Since it’s the season of giving, I would love it if everyone stands a chance of winning the prizes. I’ll make the mechanics extra simple. And by simple, I mean that interested parties would just have to provide me with a short answer [in the comments section] to this question: What is the single thing that makes you realize that Christmas is looming around the corner? Just give me anything that makes you truly feel the Christmas spirit. I would be delighted to read your answers. Oh and by the way, a person can comment only ONCE.


Promo period is from today, December 16 until December 25, 2010. As usual, the winner will be chosen via Random.org and will be announced here through a blog post on December 27, 2010. The winner will also be notified via e-mail.


I will be sending the prizes to the winner’s address for free and as soon as I can so the winner can start the year with the planner. I will have to contact the winner for shipping details so please do not forget to leave your email address in the corresponding area in the comments section. This giveaway is open to all Philippine residents only.


Ready, set, comment!!! Goodluck, everybody. Merry Christmas!!! Smiley

A Very Merry Christmas: Yuletide Giveaway

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 “Pieces 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]! 😀

What I did was list all the names according to how many raffle points they got, scrambled the list, and used Random.org to select the winner.



And the winner of the Clinique haul, consisting of a travel-sized Take The Day Off Makeup Remover, Blushwear Cream Stick in Rosy Blush, and soap dish, is… *drum roll*
