The 'Because I Passed My Exams' Giveaway

Pin It
Hey ladies

I'm halfway through my Vet Nurse Certificate course now Wooohhhh!
We had exams over the last two weeks and last Friday we started on a 3 week break before the hard yards of semester 2 begin!

I thought I'd completely stuffed up my exams. The pass mark is 70% and so I was quaking in my boots praying that I would be invited to resit all the ones I failed.
Then came the moment when I checked my results... They listed the results online under our student id numbers so we could see how the whole class went. So I got out my id card and went hunting through the 7 separate results lists (we have 7 papers).

Well I couldn't f**ing believe it! Literally. I'd passed everything and actually done bloody well for myself. I really have no idea how it happened! I emailed my tutor to double check they hadn't mistaken my student id for another's! I was so on edge waiting to hear back from her. I was too scared to celebrate and accept that they were my real marks.
When I heard back,  she assured me that they truly were my results and congratulated me.

Talk about AWESOME! I felt soooooooooo relieved too! The assignments/course work have been stressing me out to the maxxxxxx so it's amazing to know I can get some of it right, lol!

Anyway, to celebrate I'm hosting a wee giveaway for my lovey readers! When I'm stressed out about class, blogging is such a great distraction and outlet! Especially when I read your comments here and on facebook.
Thank you for stopping by now and then to see what my nails are up to and saying hi :)

There will be two prizes up for grabs.
1) $20 Harlow & Co voucher - open to everyone
2) Random Polish Prize Pack - open to NZ residents only due to shipping restrictions

I wish I could ship polish internationally but too many packages have been returned with warnings of fines or just disappeared in to the mail abyss.
The polish prize pack contains 4 BN lacquers so far and I'll likely add to it.
NZ residents are eligible to enter for both prizes. I will draw two winners so if a kiwi wins the Harlow & Co voucher they won't also get the polish pack - that makes it a little fairer right?

The giveaway started Thursday 11 July (on facebook because I was too tired to write the blog post til now, sorry) and ends Saturday 20 July 12:00am (so really Friday night NZ time).
You do not have to actually follow the blog to enter, though there are bonus entries for those of you who do. All I ask for is a contact email so I can get in touch with you if you win and if you live in New Zealand. Please be honest here so I can get the winners drawn in a timely manner. I will disqualify your entries if I find you do not reside in NZ.

Good Luck and Thank You!
