Giveaway : Good News And Bad :)

The OASAP giveaway scam was on till a few days back and a lot of you were kind enough to enter, Thank you so much for your time.
Well, let me give you a little history, here is the email I received from OASAP  
"Oasap.com has released a lot of pieces for spring and summer 2013, and we'd like to sponsor a giveaway on your blog.
Just a few steps:1. Put on Oasap banner on the blog (please find the banner from this page:);2. Create a giveaway post which lasts 10 days, and more than three links back to OASAP
3. To get more than 50 participants, require all the participants to register as a member of OASAP and make a comment on your post with the account email; "


You all were kind enough to enter and we did have more than 50 entries.
So I wrote back letting them know that I was picking a winner.
This is what they said 
 "Sorry,but it did not reach the conditions according to the rules."
They gave no explanation, when I asked them why...well no reply from them.

So needless to say, I feel a little cheated and peeved by the way OASAP went about the giveaway. They got the registrations, pageviews FB likes, Twitter followers and now they dont want to honour their end of the deal.

As a rule in life, I try not to dwell on the negative and the only reason I am writing all this is for other bloggers to be cautious about brand associations and giveaways..anyway lesson learnt...time to move on..

Here is what will happen now..
draped dress giveaway


 I will pick a winner and this gorgeous draped dress is what the winner gets...
The dress is a size S but runs a little large and would fit a size M too.
I will pick a winner tomorrow, so if you have not entered yet, enter now by leaving a comment with your email add here :)
All the best
So upset about the OASAP giveaway scam

  12. This is so disheartening. I can't believe that they didn't hold up their end of the deal, and didn't even reply to your email.
