On A (Fragrance) Roll

Early this month, I realized that I'm on a roll when it comes to luck with winning fragrances (not just colognes, but designer fragrances!). This had led me to think and sniff (whether I smell bad or not). Haha! Just kidding! It's no secret that I love reading magazines, and I don't really care from which publication it is, whether local or international, as long as it's good and I get my money's worth! I get my monthly dose of kikay goodness (plus a little loot on the side) from these magazines.

I bought the May 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan with Anne Curtis on the cover (which was their 15th anniversary issue). I had to get it because anniversary issues of magazines are good and jam-packed (most of the time). While this one from Cosmo was half-filled with ads and semi-naked hunks, I'm not complaining because of this.


Being the contest junkie that I am, I had to join! They gave away prizes from different brands every 2 days, and I joined on the days that I liked what they were giving away.

And then one day, I received an e-mail telling me that I won a Carolina Herrera Eau de Parfum! Even if I had no idea how it smelled like, I was still excited. Who wouldn't be? :D

Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Eau de Parfum and Clutch Bag

Thank you, Cosmo!

For the month of June, I bought Meg with Marian Rivera on the cover because it's their 14th anniversary issue. (See? I'm all for the "anniversary issues"!) I wasn't really paying attention to the ads, but then I saw this page at the last minute (which was the last day of the month, and the deadline of the submission of entries). 

 

I composed an email answering this question, and saw an announcement on iammeg.ph after a few days, with my name and answer on it (together with 2 other lucky ladies)!


J. Del Pozo HWN Fever Eau de Parfum

Thank you, Meg!

My mom who once told me that magazines were a waste of money now tells me that I can buy them every month. Haha! Now the question is, which one to use first. What do you think? :)

Love,
Helen
