Champagne, chandeliers, cheese and a cute little goodie bag greeted me upon arrival at the NAWIC Ladies Night: Getting Awards Ready event.

I've Had A Blowout | Giveaway

Meeting and greeting with champagne!  Marnie and Sarah check out the major prize.

The night was hosted by the gorgeous National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Queensland and Northern Territory council members: Marnie Beckett, Sarah Roach and Janelle Walker at the snazzy Stefan Concept Salon in South Brisbane, on September 12.

Giveaway | I've Had A Blowout

Deliciousness on a plate!

To kick off the glamour night’s excitement, the winners of four lucky door prizes were announced.  Winner, winner chicken dinner, I was one of those lucky four!  I was super pumped to win a Coconut & Vanilla Hair & Bodylicious Shampoo valued at $29.95…I’ve already cracked open the 710mL bottle of absolute deliciousness – it smells like a beach holiday in a pump-bottle…a-mazinggg!

For the next two hours, some of Stefan’s very talented makeup artists showcased Stefan’s newly launched makeup line and shared their best makeup application and hair styling secrets.  Every thing from why you should use facial primer to how to achieve those ever-popular beach curls.  The girls even included a demo on how to use eyeliner on the lower lash-line without creating ‘eye goop’!  Hahahah, yep, that one was a real special request that had the whole room laughing!

Before the evening came to a close, the winner of the major door prize was draw. The massive prize pack included the following Stefan products:

  • 1 x bright red and leopard print oversized bag
  • 1 x Professional Ionic 2200W Hairdryer
  • 1 x Professional Ceramic Straight Iron
  • 1 x Strawberry Magic Hair & Bodylicious Shampoo
  • 1 x ALIVE Nourishing Daily Keratin Shampoo for coloured hair
  • 1 x ALIVE Nourishing Daily Keratin Conditioner for coloured hair
  • 1 x ALIVE One Minute Volumising Keratin Treatment for fine hair
  • 1 x classic brush (large)

To my complete surprise my business card was draw!  I couldn’t believe my luck – it was an amazingly generous prize…I think I shrieked the words, “Holy smokes that’s my card!” before my name was even announced.

I realised at that point that the electronic items in the pack (the ceramic straightener and hairdryer) would need to have dual voltage for them to work in both Australia and the United States – which will become my new home in less than three weeks (eeeek!).   The girls at Stefan offered to switch my electronic products for other haircare items if I found the voltage to be incompatible with the US (again, super lovely of them).
