My Evita Peroni prizes from Daphne's Diary

I recently won my first contest while pregnant! That deserves to be mentioned because there's this belief that pregnant women are lucky, so since getting preggers I've been joining contests and raffles left and right, whether for an Xperia X10 phone (a Sony Ericsson raffle), a Tamaraw FX (a Mercury Drug raffle) and, yes, almost all the blog giveaways I can find and... I haven't won anything! Till now!

Daphne Osena Paez of Daphne's Diary made me the winner of the second prize and I was thrilled to just get one Evita Peroni piece. But she surprised me even more by giving me three pieces! These hair accessories are expensive so I... well, if I could've jumped up and down, I would've; instead I just clapped my hands very loudly and happily when I finally opened the bag.

Now for my loot...

This is the Kezia band (P585) and it's in pink! Love it! It's very comfy. I'm a migraine sufferer so headbands aren't a favorite but I've heard that Evita Peroni headbands are painless and the rumor is correct!
I usually avoid headbands with teeth because my huge forehead will be exposed (ya, I can give Tyra Banks some stiff competition in the forehead department), plus with my recent pregnancy-related acne problems, I'm pretty much convinced I should hide my face since I'd be perfect for those acnepril reviews and research. But I do believe this Kezia band makes me look pretty!


This is the Stina Beaded Soft Band (P2,850). Very pretty and, again, very comfortable. My strands don't get caught in the beads at all.
Must wear this to an event soonest. The thick band helps to hide my roots, too! Although my large ears peek out. Well, they always do. Vince thinks my big ears are adorable.


Look at this marvelous Eila Pelican fascinator in teal (P3,480)! I didn't realize it was this big! I don't even know how to wear it (I think I'm wearing it upside down?).
I told Daphne that the clips won't go to waste and that I was really going to wear them. Well, I truly will! I'm planning to wear this with my black dresses so that the piece can really stand out.


Love them all to bits! I'm already planning outfits to go with them and will definitely post photos here when I do get to wear them out in the world.

My super thanks to Daphne and Evita Peroni! Daphne, the card was lovely and your handwriting is beautiful. Vince--who happily took these photos--thinks the Evita Peroni pieces look fab on me so thank you, too, for making my hubby see me yet again in a different light.

  4. Pretty, pretty hair accessories! I can not wait to see how you'll rock that fascinator.

    I also have a very wide forehead, it's a landing pad, I tell you. I used to get teased about it when I was a kid, I'd tell them na lang, "matalino kase ako!" :D

    I've never, ever won a raffle before! Let's see pag nagbuntis ako, hehe.

    Razielle, did you get na your prize? Blog about it, too!

    Pat, I do my own eyebrows =D I learned from YouTube! But when I get too busy or lazy, I go to Bench Fix in Robinsons Galleria. The girl there (yes, there's just one woman who does it) does an EXCELLENT job!
