Ireneyksoh Birthday Giveaway A

Published June 29, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Friends who had been with me for long would definitely know that my birthday is coming up soon. In less than two weeks time, I will be older by one year. Despite so, I had already start to receive birthday wishes and blessing both via various medias from friends. Am so touched by their kind thoughts.

And in celebration of my coming birthday, I’ve decided to come out with a few surprise giveaways on my blog to share my joys with friends here. While I’m looking forward and eager as to what presents I will receive this year, I also want to spread happiness around by giving some fabulous things to friends here too. I shall now begin the first one… …

The first set of gift that I will be giving away to two lucky friends will be a makeup pouch consisting of eight makeup brushes. Rules are kept simple as always.  All you have to do is be the first two to leave me a comment here stating: “I would love to have the makeup brushes!“.

Do take note that there will be four more surprise giveaway coming up soon. And since its gonna be a surprise giveaway, it will happen at any time. Do take note that friends are only allowed to win once in the surprise giveaways. This is my way of making sure more friends get to share my joy, rather than just one person winning most of the items.

Guardian Price Is Right Challenge

Published June 22, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Participated in Guardian Pharmacy’s Price is right facebook challenge and am so happy to be one of the lucky twelve winners. I was so tied up with work and unable to go down collect the prize myself. A million thanks to my sister for having went all the way down to collect this bag of goodies for me. She is such an angel.

I emptied out the content and was so amazed by the huge amount of goodies. The woven bag may seems small at first sight. But it really thrills me that so many things can be packed into it. Isn’t that so generous of Guardian Pharmacy?

I will be putting aside some items and will be organising another mystery bag giveaway on my blog soon. Do keep a lookout of you are interested.

Sorry For Having M.I.A For So Long

Published June 20, 2012 by ireneyksoh

My sincere apologies for having MIA for such a long period of time. I had started a new job last month and am trying very hard to cope with it. But sadly, my learning speed is not as fast as what my boss wants me to be. My long working hours is also another reason why I’m away. I hit pillow within two hours after reaching home from work. I feel so drained that I cannot spare any brain juice to come up with any blog post. Will definitely post more updates once my job is more stabilised.

Till then, au revoir… …

Another Lot Of Goodies

Published June 5, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Coming home after a hard days work to find more parcels containing goodies for me. Its such a wonderful thing to be able to received new goodies. And more happy when you don’t have to spend any single cent on them.

My first goodie is from Ahava. It is my prize for being the 1st 100/50 fans to like and share their page with friends. Lots of my friends had been using their products and highly recommend me to give it a try too. But sadly, I don’t find the price wallet- friendly. Am so happy to be able to get some samples to try on.

The next one is a mystery goodie bag that I had won from Bonj Japan FB Share and win contest. Just look at all the lovely snacks included in the package. I am one happy gal.

After that is the Hansaplast sample that I had requested from their facebook page. Was only expecting to received one sample sachet. But Hansaplat was so kind and generous in giving a box containing five strips. That is so sweet of them.

Last of all, is a set of three sachet of AFC Green beauty won through their facebook contest. Won it through a friend who tagged me as her BFF. Its like I’m riding on her good luck. So happy to have gotten to know her and to be her BFF too. I am indeed blessed.

Gmarket Purchase!

Published June 2, 2012 by ireneyksoh

Hooray! I’ve finally found myself a new job. After idling at home for more than a month, I sincerely hoped that I have not gotten lazy yet. And on celebration, I’ve decided to get myself something from Gmarket. And after waiting for some time, it finally arrived in my doorstep today.

I bought myself 4 bottles of Etude House Missing You hand cream 30ml at a super low promotion price of S$3.90 each. That is quite a cheap deal as compare to the price at our local Etude House stores. Will be giving a set to my beloved cousin when I see her.

Despite me buying only 4 items and at such a low price, the seller was very generous in giving free samples. Was only expecting to see a few sachets. The seller truly wow me with all these goodies. I can’t help but feel super pampered.
