Celebrating the MWS Reader's Choice Awards 2011 ~ The Most Fab Party Ever!

When Paris B of My Women Stuff announced that she'll be organising a beauty Reader's Choice Award, the first ever in Malaysia, I was super excited because it gave me and everyone else an opportunity to nominate and vote for their favourite beauty products and brands. Yesterday, we attended the spectacular MWS RCA party at Sunway Giza and boy, was it a ton of fun!

Not only did I meet all my fabulous and gorgeous friends again but I made more fabulous and gorgeous friends too. There was coffee by Coffee Chemistry Cafe, food, a scrumptious cake (from the folks at Just Heavenly) and lots of laughter and conversation :-)

I was having such a wonderful time at the party that I sort of forgot about the prizes and goody bag and was absolutely amazed at the generosity of the participating sponsors and brands. You can view all the MWS Reader's Choice Award winners over at Paris B's blog. Did any of your favourites win? There were 10 lucky draw prizes too and one bonus prize, which I won, for producing a winning beauty product at the event. I had a Dior Addict lipstick with me at that time ;-)

The grand prize sponsored by Dior was won by Beetrice (lucky girl!) and doesn't she look absolutely giddy with joy? The hefty Dior swag is worth RM750!

I may not have won the big prize but we each got to go home with really awesome goodie bags worth RM350. That's a heck of a lot of products! *woot woot*

This was the bonus prize I won and it's a waxing session at Apronbay. With a name like Copacabana, I am guessing it is a bikini waxing session. Maybe it will make me feel like a showgirl named Lola?

I can't wait to try out the L'Oreal Perfect Clean Refreshing Foaming Gel Wash, which was recently released locally.

Another product I can't wait to test out is the Kiehl's Surface Brightening Exfoliator... I'll probably use it tonight!

This gorgeous necklace is the most precious thing in the bag and as a crafter myself, I sincerely appreciate handmade goods. It is made by Tine of Beautyholics Anonymous and came all the way from Australia. Do check out her beautiful shop at Sweet Contemplation Accessories for more. I already plan to get a few delightful accessories soon!

A special thanks to Paris B for making this event a reality and congratulations on such a successful party too! I had a great time and it certainly made me feel better especially after so many tragic losses I have suffered recently.

And yes, we need a MWS Reader's Choice Awards for 2012 too ;-)
