Take a picture of yourself or your feet (if you're too shy) wearing Fitflop, and post it in your facebook account. Don't forget to add Fitflop as your friend first (http://www.facebook.com/fitflop?hiq=fitflop). Once you've posted your photo, tag them and include a short text on why you love wearing them. Best shots WIN A NEW PAIR! WInners will be announced on July 20. So, wear your FitFlop this weekend and start taking photos :)
I just found out recently that Maybelline's fan page has been giving lots of freebies to Facebookers. This time, they're giving away to 10 winners FREE CUT, COLOR, and HAIR TREATMENT care of L'Oreal Professionel and Kérastase Institute. Plus, MAYBELLINE GOODIES! Sounds like a great makeover to me :)
How to join? Simply post a picture of yourself using your favorite Maybelline product/s on the wall of Maybelline's Facebook Page. Again, you have to add them up: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Maybelline-Philippines/114944116100?ref=nf
Contest will end July 20, so put on your best face (with the help of Maybelline) and give it your best shot.
Oh, and here's something for those who have some free time on Mondays and Tuesdays:
One of Manila's biggest buffets (if not THE biggest), Sofitel Spirals, is giving 50% off on your bill for every groups of 4. Promo is only available every Mondays and Tuesdays, for the whole month of July! Call 551-5555 for reservations.
Happy weekend and to those who plan to join the contests—good luck ;) Hope you win!
