Winning Is So Much Fun!

As for me, prizes are nothing. My prize is my work.
Katharine Hepburn

I agree my work is my prize each day…but with all due respect to Katherine…winning a tangible prize is more than just…nothing!  One of the many, many reasons blogs are more fun than magazines is the opportunity to occasionally win a small prize or two!!  Recently, I won a couple of fun giveaways and at the end of this post I will announce the winner of the Coldwater Creek giveaway.
Patti at Not Dead Yet Style recently gave away Miracle Blur by Loreal.  I have only used it twice, but so far I do like it.  Gives skin under makeup a smooth rich texture.  Thanks so much, Patti!
Susan at Flattering 50 gave away a $25 gift card to Amazon. I buy all my books on AMAZON and was tempted to shop books, but I decided since Susan and I both write fashion blogs, I should spend it on something really fun...like scarves.  Both the leopard and the silky green knit, are now mine!  Thanks Susan!!
Contests are just a little fun in our day and sometimes it is nice to arrive home after a tiring day of work and find a surprise in the mail box or on the front porch!

So, I am happy to pass along the joy and announce the winner of the Coldwater Creek jewelry is Sharon Hodor Greenthal!!  Congratulations, Sharon!  Once I get a mailing address, then it will be on its way to you!

Everyone have a fabulous Friday!!

Your "living-like-you-feel-40" tip of the day:  Take time to have a little fun every day.  Make sure you find something...no matter how small...to make you smile!

  9. When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
