The Contest Queen

I may have blogged about this before, so forgive me if you've heard this.

I'm sort of lucky when it comes to contests. In college I won a few CDs from radio station contests and a trip to Lollapalooza at a bar drawing. Since then I've garnered concert tickets to see Alanis Morrisette (by doing something that I would never dream of doing now). There's also the Build the Outfit contest at the Manolo's blog, and the denim wardrobe that I won from one of Lucky Magazine's online sweepstakes they hold every month.

Well darned if I didn't hit it again. Lucky Magazine strikes again! I'll soon be receiving a bra and panty set from Calvin Klein in the mail.

Would somebody please tell me how I can strike it rich with this mediocre fortuitous streak of mine?

I'll forgive you if you forgive me, because if you wrote about this before my comment was probably the same too.

I never win at contests.

Cat - that may be the case, but you still have fabulous hair.

As a fellow Contest Queen ( one secret to winning is to believe you can win, and another is to enter, a lot.

I can give you heaps more advice but it's too long to go into here. You can read the back issues of The Winnign EDGE for more tips and tricks of being a sweepstakes and contest winner.

I hope many more wins come your way.

Congrats! There's nothing better than free stuff.

Well done, although if I had entered, I probably would have won women's underwear too...then I would have had some explaining to do.

Well played.

Carolyn - thanks! I'll have to check out your site, I'm sure it's got some great pointers.

Chel, thanks, and free lingerie no less. Hopefully new. :)

Mur, couldn't you have just given them to your gal and said you got them as a gift?

Cat, not as well played as your head with that hair! :)
