And the Winner Is...

I consider myself pretty tech savvy in some regards. I mastered my dad's Blackberry when he had one of the HUGE ones back when they first came out. I was a pro at my first iPod that weighed about 12 pounds and really worked out my arm muscles when I ran. And the DVR? Psh, I had the filled before my parents even knew how it worked (to the point where they had to get DVR in my room because I hogged the entire DVR).

I brag about all my wonderful accomplishments (sarcastically, I hope you all know) to explain how dumb I am when it comes to figuring out how to pick a winner for giveaways. As you all know, this was my VERY FIRST giveaway ever! (And I loved it, so anyyy more companies out there are more than welcome to offer me fabulous giveaway items).

Honestly, I had no idea how to even choose a winner. So, just so you understand the pathetic nature of the process, here is how it went... I copied EVERY name into an Excel spreadsheet (glad that my resume says I'm equipped with Excel!), and then called up J. I simply said "Pick a number between...", which he did. And that, my dears, was how I chose a winner for the contest. Easy peasy, but terribly unprofessional I'm sure!

The winner of the fabulous Misikko giveaway, and a gorgeous Hana straightener is... the darling Couture Carrie, who has been one of my favorite fashion bloggers since I began blogging! She posts gorgeous, lust-worthy styles every day and is just fabulous!

Carrie, send me an email with your name and address, and I will contact John at Misikko for you to get your straightener sent out! :) (Allison_ladolcevita@yahoo.com). Congrats, darling!

A real post is coming sometime this week - I'm on spring break and LOVING it (though I'm still going to bed early and waking up early.. guess I'm on a whole different schedule now!).

Aw - congratulations to the winner although I'm a bit sick at not winning but I excluded myself on the basis that (a) you need long(ish) hair or even hair at all to use them (b) I'm a man and my daughter would never have let me forget it if she saw me trying to use them (I used to iron my shoulder-length hair - get that) and (c) I live outside the US so did not qualify.

Ahh! Congrats to Carrie, I remember reading her when I first started blogging two years ago, but haven't really in awhile. :\
