12 Days of Holiday Cheer Giveaway Day 8: Coty Celebrity Gift Sets featuring Halle Berry, Katy Perry & Beyoncé
Day 6 Winner Announcement: First, let me announce our winner (via Random.org) of this giveaway series from Day 6. Congratulations to Christina K! She will receive a $25.00 HSN Gift Card. There were lots of great answers to the Question of the Day for this giveaway item! The question was Let's pretend...I do a lot of pretending about these kinds of scenarios! You've won a $500.00 gift card from the office Holiday party, but you can only use it to purchase products from one brand of higher end cosmetics (just not drug store cosmetics, but anything that you consider higher end). What brand do you choose? Our winner Christina said I'd spend it all at Cle de Peau! She has exquisite taste. They definitely make some beautiful products.
Day 8 of our 12 Days of Holiday Cheer Giveaway features 3 celebrity gift sets from Coty. One winner will receive all three items pictured above. You can click on each product's link for additional information about the fragrance notes.
Closer by Halle Berry An intriguing scent that is a rare blend of the traditional masculine fougere accord with a luscious feminine blend of violet flowers and mimosa, one of Halle’s favorite flowers.
Purr by Katy Perry (who recently signed on with Coty) This scent begins with the aroma of peach nectar and forbidden apple, evolves with a distinct floral bouquet of jasmine blossom, Bulgarian rose and vanilla orchid, and slowly reveals accents of creamy sandalwood and musk. Like the singer herself, Purr is playful yet sophisticated.
Midnight Heat by Beyoncé The fruity floral gourmand opens with juicy top notes of Dragonfruit, Starfruit and Armenian Plum. The heart is a vivid floral bouquet built upon the Purple Mokara Orchid, Queen of the Night Black Tulip and Purple Peony. Finally, the base seduces the senses with Warm Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood.

12 Days of Holiday Cheer Question Day 8: Tell us a favorite or an eventful Christmas/Holiday memory--something that stands out from other years past.
My Answer: One of the things that I always recall is my little brother's arrival, because he was born on Christmas Day. It's one of the first things I really remember from my early childhood--probably because he took my rightful place as the baby of the family and diverted attention away from me! I really didn't comprehend at that age that my mom was pregnant, but I recall my dad coming home on Christmas and telling my sisters and I that we were getting a little brother for Christmas. My oldest sister said something to the effect that we didn't ask for that! The hospital had him bundled up in an oversized stocking, and I realized this little newby already had a stocking bigger than mine. I was 4 and in pre-school at the time, and it didn't take me long to convince myself that if I returned to school after the break, this little baby was going to have my precious mother all to himself while I was at school. So in my infinite wisdom at 4 years of age, I absolutely refused to return to school. And that is why I am a pre-school drop-out. True story! I guess I eventually got over the idea that he was a threat to me, because I entered Kindergarten in the Fall and continued the rest of my education without having to drop out again :)
(note: I personally celebrate the Christmas Holiday, but I hope my questions are able to be interpreted for whatever Holiday you celebrate, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.).
