Win 3 Drybar Blowouts

Win 3 Drybar Blowouts

Enter this contest to possibly win 3 free blowouts at my favorite beauty salon, DryBar. This is truly the best hair salon in Manhattan for blow outs that I've ever been to and everything is perfect and wonderful from the moment you enter the salon until you leave.

When you first enter the salon, you are brought into a wonderland of beauty with all the thrills of a kid in a candy store, literally. There are little bowls of sweets, mini chocolate chip cookies, candy, chocolate all over the place for the patrons to enjoy at no fee and the air of the salon is fun, warm and inviting.

The stylists couldn't be nicer and their warmth is from the heart, not artificial in any way. I have been having my hair done at this salon since first discovering it about 6 weeks ago, once a week and it is truly the one time of the week that I covet because I can close my eyes and slip away into my own little world as I am pampered by my favorite stylist, Alexandra Archibold, who is a pro in every sense of the word, and simply relax and meditate. By the time Alexandra is done, not only does my hair look gorgeous but I feel invigorated with a new sense of energy to face the world for another week.

Every experience at this salon has been wonderful. I think the reason for this is the stylists really seem happy to be working there and they seem to be a little family minus any of the squabbles that go along with family life.

I just love this place and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for luck on this giveaway. Win or lose, I will continue to visit my favorite salon and for $40 for a blow out, this place is really a steal. Once you try it, you'll be hooked just as I am. Good luck to all and thank you for this wonderful opportunity to possibly win this incredibly generous and extremely coveted prize.

As much as I'd like to keep this contest as quiet as possible so as to increase my chances of winning, that would be bad Karma and this place is so wonderful that I had to share about this contest on my facebook page, kleimanlaw, as well as twitter page, @DianeLori.

Again, thank you for the opportunity to possibly win this marvelous giveaway and Good Luck To All! Win or lose, do yourself a favor and check out this salon. You'll be elated that you did.

The Plastic Diaries Annual Survey and WIN The Plastic Diaries Essential Prize Pack Giveaway

The Plastic Diaries Annual Survey and WIN The Plastic Diaries Essential Prize Pack Giveaway: Over the past few weeks many of you lovely people have been having your say in our weekly polls. It has been amazing to hear your thoughts on all sorts of topics. To be honest, I have become even more intrigued to learn about you all. As much as I write this blog for me, to document my learnings and discoveries, I write it even more for all of you. Without you I would be just talking into blank open space .... or to my dogs who quite frankly were sick of hearing it in the first place.

To get to know you a little more, I have put together the first of The Plastic Diaries Annual Survey. It is a very simple questionnaire on what you like. While it is short and sweet, I do know that we all like a little incentive, am I right? To thank-you for taking 10 minutes out of your day (and 10 minutes would be an exaggeration. It should only take 2!), I have compiled my possibly best ever giveaway to date.


What You Can Win


In a complete draining of my bank account, I have decided to compile a prize pack of items I feel are ESSENTIALS. These are products I use, love and recommend. They are a mix of Aussie favourites, newly discovered loves AND hard to source items (some of which I shleped back from the US with me for this very competition). I am very excited to give this all to one lucky person.



The prize pack is valued at over $500, and I am going to reveal to you the prize pack contents in segments. To wet your whistle (what does that saying even mean?!?!), here are the first 8 products!


Urban Decay Naked Palette*



Face of Australia Purifying Cleansing Wipes



Bio-Oil




Napoleon Perdis DeVine Lipstick in Della (different colour to shown below)



Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in Silver and Navy Blue




Kiehl's Lip Balm SPF 15 - Hue No. 30G
*


Kiehl's Lip Balm SPF 15 - Hue No. 30G ( Petrolatum Lip Protectant ) 15ml/0.5oz

Blixz Nail Foils 24 pack in Like A Leopard Pink & Gold





How to Win


All you need to do is click here to take survey, and at the end you will have the option to enter the giveaway. The competition closes on November 11, so you have a bit of time, but who would want to wait around with prizes like that!!


Make sure you read these TERMS AND CONDITIONS before doing so, just to make sure you are down with everything. There may (*shifty eyes*) also be an official list of the products in there, so if you can't wait for the slow and painful reveal, check it out there.


I am dying to hear from you all so please, have your say. Your thoughts, opinions and voice is important to me!
