Julep Polish Giveaway Winners!

Julep Valerie & Glam Roc - Julep Polish Giveaway PrizesFirst, a sincere THANK YOU to everyone who entered my Julep Polish Giveaway!  I appreciate all your tweets, Likes, and shares.  It really means so much to me to engage with readers like this, and I’m very glad to have given back.  I’m working hard to vary my content to include more aspects of my life, like my photography, entertaining, crafts, whatnot, and hope you’ll continue to join me for this journey!

Please follow me on Bloglovin’ or Subscribe to weekly updates straight in your inbox.

I randomly selected which winner will receive Julep Valerie, a teal with iridescent microglitter, and which will receive Julep Glam Roc, a midnight purple & gold stardust (matte glitter).  Thanks to Rafflecopter, the winners were chosen using Random.org technology and my personal random process of picking which winner would receive which polish involved mixing them up in my hands without looking and picking one first for the first winner, and one second for the second winner.  Highly technical and scientific, right?

Congratulations to Amie W. of Pingree Grove, IL and Sonya P. of Berwick, PA!

Thanks so much for your tweets and Facebook likes!  If you really want to get your hot hands on these fabulous Julep polishes featured in my Julep Polish Giveaway, they are available at Julep.com for $14.00 each (or $11.20 for Mavens).  If you choose to signup to be a Maven, use code FREEBOX to get your first Maven box for free (just pay the totally reasonable shipping cost).

So… what should I give away next? 🙂

Julep Polish Giveaway! Valerie and Glam Roc

Julep Polish Giveaway!  Valerie and Glam Roc

Enter to Win one of 2 Julep PolishesRecently Julep was offering a Golden Ticket Mystery Box with the potential opportunity to name one of their new polishes.  You won this opportunity if your box included a gold-topped Gold Star Glitter polish. Well heck, I just wanted the gold star glitter, so I ordered away! (okay, I really did hope to name a polish Trisha too lol). My Golden Ticket Mystery box did not contain one of the Golden Ticket polishes (sad for me) but it certainly did not disappoint in it’s abundance! I ordered one of the Mystery Boxes (#3 cause that’s my lucky number) and went with a Mystery Add-on too, so all told I spent about $40 and I definitely got my money’s worth. Here’s the impressive haul:

Quite the hall, and well worth the $40 as this is over $100 in value just in the polish alone.  I’m pretty excited for the Freedom Polymer Top Coat since I haven’t tried it yet.  I probably won’t be buying another Mystery Box any time soon, only because I now have these polishes to try out first!  The astute reader, however, might notice that there’s a couple of duplicates in that list of polishes.

I already own Valerie (a cool jade creme with subtle golden sparkles) and Glam Roc (a purple and gold sparkle textured polish).  So I’m having a Julep Polish Giveaway!  Of course, I’m keeping the ones I’ve already opened (duh) and giving you the brand new ones I just received.

Awesome Custom Stickers for the Masses

Posted on Dec 20, 2011 in Contests, Marketing | 11 comments

I love stickers.  As a child, I admit, I had those awesome Paul Frank sticker albums full of puffy stickers and scratch-n-sniffs.  Growing up with a somewhat unique name like Trisha, I’ve always been a big proponent of self-expression, uniqueness, and customization.  As a result, I customize EVERYTHING… I even dropped the $50 on the pretty purple ‘lid’ for my new Dell 🙂  So I love the idea of completely customized stickers to throw around to promote my personal sites.  I loved the excellent quality laptop-friendly stickers we had made from StickerGiant for our Get Noticed Fast panel a few years ago at Affiliate Summit East 2009, which solidified my status of “big fan” of StickerGiant.com, specifically.

StickerGiant is celebrating 12 years in business and wants to spread the love by giving one lucky of our blog readers a free custom sticker print job. If you haven’t heard of StickerGiant, you should, these folks are easy to get a hold of, they are super quick, have really high quality stickers and make your artwork print ready for free, check out the stickers they did for us:

Blink Starz Media

The best part of my gloating of these awesome stickers?  You can win some too!

To Enter: Just comment on this post, and perhaps describe your sticker needs. One random winner will win a custom sticker printing job from StickerGiant.

Contest ends on January 3, 2012!  If you can’t wait to see if you’ve won, by all means just go check out StickerGiant.com and order some yourself!
