I Joined A Blog Contest. I Want An Aquasana!!!!

While I love holding contests, I hardly ever win whenever I join myself. But. Coming from my latest loot from Mommy Mundo (a baby hammock from Cradle which I will never use again since Basti fell from it. Yes, my heart stopped) and the bluetooth headphones I won from, I figured, hey, maybe my luck was changing.

And so I joined Manila Fashion Observer‘s contest for an Aquasana shower filter.

Ever since Aquasana became available here in the Philippines, I’ve wanted one. Not only do I want the shower filter, but I also want the one that filters your tap water and make it fit for drinking.

Imagine taking a shower in filtered water?? Skin allergies be gone! Smaller pores, hello!! Lovely hair, well, how do you ??? I really also want the drinking water filter because I make such a big deal about buying BPA-free products for Basti when the plastic bottles that contain mineral or distilled water aren’t BPA-free anyway.

So I hope I win. There’s still time to join, so you guys can hop on over and join too!!

And The Winners Are……

But! Before I announce the winners of my first ever blog giveaway, I would like to say sorry for the delay, because we had to go and have dinner with the whole family for my mom’s birthday.

My mom with all her grandchildren

Thank you to all the Celebrating Motherhood sponsors and a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway! I hope you don’t get tired of joining contests because I still have quite a few lined up!!!

Giveaway Update

The blog giveaway is ending on November 3! For those who are on my page for the first time (well hello there!!!), you can still gain entries by reading the mechanics here.

I promised I would announce winners on November 5, but as life would have it, I find myself to be in Baguio until then. I have no access to my spreadsheet of entries till I get home. So what to do? I guess I’ll have to extend the promo.

So tell your friends!! Catch up on entries!!! The blog giveaway is extended till November 5!!!!!!!

Simple proof that really, I have a life beyond the Internet.

Baguio is divine.

Speaking of Giveaways….
