Vera Wang Perfume Set Giveaway! ARV $150

03 Mar

Thanks to MJ I’ve finally figured out how to do a giveaway using Rafflecopter!  I do still plan on getting the paid site, but that may be a little while so this is an awesome alternative for now.  I am very excited to be doing our very first giveaway.

Just to try things out we’re going to start with something a little smaller than the full swag bag, and give away a full sized (100ml) bottle of Vera Wang Princess, and the matching satiny body lotion.  I *love* this perfume!  I’m a sweet kinda gal, and this scent has a lovely sweet yet mature tone to it that I wear almost every day.

In order to use Rafflecopter I’ve had to set it up on the AiM Facebook page, since the free wordpress blog does not accept javascript.  It kind of defeats the purpose since I am trying to drive traffic to the site so I would very much appreciate it if you would bookmark this page to do your daily entries rather than the facebook page.  If this works out well, there will be many more giveaways to come!

*** To enter, please head on over to the Adventures in Miscellany facebook page, like, and you will see the rafflecopter widget under the Vera Wang Giveaway tab in the left hand menu.***

Winners entries will be verified!  Please make sure you’ve completed them properly.

Winner will get 1 – 3.4oz (100ml) bottle of Vera Wang Princess, and 1 – 5 oz (150ml) tube of Vera Wang Princess Satiny Body Lotion.  This giveaway will be open to residents of Canada and the US, and will end March 31st at midnight.  I will make every attempt to contact you, but I must hear from you within 72 hours of notification or I will chose another winner.

This giveaway is in no way sponsored, or endorsed by Vera Wang.

Actual prize, Vera Wang Princess perfume, and satiny body lotion. ARV $150

    I really like this perfume too — Great Giveaway. I also like your article about Contesting — I can really relate to it and I appreciate any new tips that a fellow contester may have. It’s always nice to see another interesting blog from a fellow Canadian. Keep it up:)

    Hey – great blog! So far looks good – a little hard having the rafflecopter on facebook and then having to come back to the blog though – is it harder to get rafflecopter on the wordpress page?

    Great giveaway! I have always wanted to try this, but have been too cheap. Never saw one up on a blog before so props for that.

    Would love to see more of the same content in the future especially giveaways 😉

    Thanks for this giveaway! I like the page on facebook and also follow with networked blogs as my facebook name cgm Love. The blog is very nice, especially because it is very easy to read and it doesn’t take time to download the pages. Thanks again!

    March 7, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Thanks for the chance! I like your blog and the idea behind it. My only suggestion is to spruce it up a little bit with a little eye-grabbing color and a more welcoming header! 🙂

    March 7, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Congrats on the new blog. It looks great!! Looking forward to lots of great reviews and giveaways. I do love that your theme is not overdone and full of buttons and so much going on that the page would take forever to load (simple is better) 🙂

    I like the look of your blog. It’s clean and sharp looking. Although I would prefer the tabs up top (Home, About, etc.) to be bolder/bigger and centered.

  37. Mary Bearden

    March 10, 2012 at 7:24 am

    Is there a reason why the RC form is on Facebook and not here? Is it better somehow? Just wondering. I kept losing the blog every time I had to come back so had to reload every time.

      March 10, 2012 at 7:41 am

      Hi Mary,

      Yes, unfortunately, there is a reason. WordPress free blogs do not support the script needed for rafflecopter. So it was a choice between putting it on FB, or doing the giveaway with comments. I chose to use FB 🙂

      When I enter giveaways, I learned that it’s always easier to right click and chose ‘open link in new tab’ so I don’t lose my page. Hopefully that will help!

    March 10, 2012 at 8:05 am

    Your blog looks very nice and organized. I really like how everything is easy to find on the right hand column. I don’t have to search or scroll all over the page to find the links to follow the blog or look for recent posts etc… Looks good! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

    Love it!!
    Lots of information! Of course I already know about Ben and Chance. I have no idea how you have time to read AND I got a chuckle about
    “I was the girl who could eat anything she wanted and never put on an ounce.”
    I was the same way until I turned 30! I weighed 98 lbs 5 months pregnant at age 19 lol
