As a kid, I always won contests. Always. At school, on the radio, and via the local newspaper. I have attended so many concerts for free due to me winning contests. I was just a winner. I hardly ever enter Twitter/Tumblr/Facebook contests. Mainly because the contest require so much from you. They want you to "like" the Facebook pages, follow them on Twitter and Tumblr, and repost about the contest. The reality is that I like to follow only the people and companies I like. So, I usually never give the contests a second glance. But, there were two in the last few weeks that really caught my eye. So, I went against my first mind and entered both. Imagine my surprise when I WON the first one!!!
The first contest was sponsored by Sassy Nation. This contest was tailored for someone like me. The prize was a Carol's Daughter's 1-2-3 Transitioning Kit. I am indeed a transitioning woman. I have wanted to try products from CD for a while now. I just don't like to order hair products online. Because if I don't like it or it doesn't work for me, returns & exchanges can be a hassle. I am currently awaiting my prize in the mail. I can't wait to get my hands on these products. I've heard great things about this kit. I just want to try them on my own transitioning hair.
I am hoping that this winning streak extends to the second contest I entered. It has to do with a free trip and concert tickets. I am wishing, hoping and praying that it does. Because the trip is to a city I've never been to but have always wanted to visit. The concert would just be the icing on the cake for a fan like me. I came across this contest via Twitter. A simple retweet brought it into my life. I still have a few weeks before a winner is chosen on that one though. Who knows, it could work. I guess now my faith is restored in the online contests. I can't wait to enter another one. Fingers crossed that I can win. What do you think about contests? Is it all about good luck?
