I Was One Of The Winners!

Remember the contest of Best Ankara or African attire hosted by Ms. Iee and co-host YNC. Well any event I submitted my photo of me with a black and white ankara that was given to me from my bff's sister-in-law from Nigeria. Honestly people, I knew I didn't have a chance because I knew other fierce Naija ladies will have blown me out the water because this is their arena, lol. However I participated anyway for fun. I had nothing to lose. I explained to my husband the contest and asked him to take pictures of me and he did and I submitted them. Weeks later I was notified that I was one of the winners. I came in 2nd place and couldn't believe it. Just for me to come in at the top 5 would have done it for me. I was so SHOCK and surprised! Too tickled. Hubby rejoiced with me, lol.
I had a choice of the prizes and I choose the make-up travel kit which I love so much. I received it in the mail a couple of days ago.
It has 2 compartments. The first compartment are the eye shadows, pic on the right. Second compartment have the lip colors, bronzer, a
translucent, lip/eye liners, and make-up applicators.

As I opened up the bottom compartment, there were some more goodies to indulge in!

-2 sets of lashes...much needed
-China Glaze nail polish called Avalanche
-Flora perfume sample by Gucci
-Murad Active Radiance Serum (I was in the sun)
-Laura Geller spackle, under make-up primer

Needless to say, I was happy! Oh yeah, check out the stylish hot pink/fuchsia protective wrap. My kids wanted to pop it all day, lol. Sorry, I look a mess, but I was doing house cleaning.
