contest time!

Sorry for the lag, folks—things have been a little exciting around here: My son, who’s been playing the excruciating game of when-am-I-going-to-hear-back-on-college applications, just got accepted into his dream school! It’s a major out-of-state institution and definitely not a bargain; but we’re happy to spend every penny on the fine education that lies ahead….

The whole thing has put me in quite the good mood; good enough to throw out some big-time beauty swag to my dear readers (including a brand-new tube of Revitalash, the $150 product that delivers seriously gorgeous lashes in a matter of weeks…trust me, I use it!). All you have to do to put yourself in the running for this and other great products, is shoot me an email at, telling me about your all-time favorite bargain. I’ll choose a winner at random and send out a bag of beauty goodies that will have you looking fab for Spring.

The contest will run until Friday, March 11th. I’ll announce the winner here on the Blog the week of March 14 th. Good luck, my fellow shopping friends!

The fine print (boring, I know, but necessary)….

Contests are sponsored by Hillary Quinn on solely for the enjoyment of her loyal fans. Have fun…and remember that the prizes are offered just to sweeten the playing. However, just so everyone is on the same page, here’s the way the contests work: Winners will be chosen at random from all correct and complete entries. Only one entry per person, please. Duplicate entries will overwrite previous entries. International entries are accepted. Odds of winning are dependent upon number of eligible entries received.

Winner[s] will be notified by e-mail within 30 days of the drawing and names may or may not get posted to this website. Winner[s] will have only 48 hours to confirm, at which time another winner will be selected. All winner name listings will be name and city of residence only so as to protect the privacy of the winner. Except as required by law, Hillary Quinn will not share entrant information with any third parties. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use the winner’s name, hometown, likeness, and any text submitted for purposes of Hillary’s advertising and promotion without further compensation.

 Any prize or prize notification returned to Hillary Quinn as undeliverable will result in the awarding of that prize to an alternate winner. Sorry, no cash equivalent.

Neither Hillary nor her web team shall be held responsible for technical failures in entry transmission, or for any damage to participant’s computer occasioned by participation in this contest/promotion or downloading any information necessary to participate in the promotion.

    My favorite bargain is Delmas Blanquette de Limoux champagne. In a blind taste test, it was a really nice champagne – not a “knock your socks off” bottle, but a lovely “let’s celebrate Thursday” bottle. The best part is the price…$10/bottle – even less if you buy it by the case. And when the champagne is $10 there are a LOT of champagne days in your life!
