And we have a winner!!! 

After 2 and a half months and 3607 entries, we finally have a winner!

I did a heads or tails if I should do a search via a number on the Rafflecopter widget (as all entries are numbered) or if I were to do a letter search on Facebook or Twitter (as in I'd randomly select a letter and ctrl+F it on the fans roster and repeat the process till there is only 1 search result), but the Rafflecopter option won. As for why I had considered a letter search in the first place, it's because I also give a lot of consideration to the extra shares and tweets of diligent participants throughout the giveaway. 

Rafflecopter does have a randomly select winner function, but I won't be able to check if the participant did the requirements prior to announcing so I decided to do a test. I asked it to select a number between 1 and 3607.

And yipee! This is the result! Congratulations, Gabi Timbancaya! Please contact me via the Doll Up Mari fanpage within three working days to confirm your acceptance of the prizes and to provide me with your details. 

Of course, I wasn't going to let any cheater win, so I checked through every requirement and thankfully, this entry had no problems. She has also interacted with me so I know that this is not a dummy account. 

And of course to everyone who joined, thank you so much for your patronage and participation. This promotion wouldn't have been successful without you. I also appreciate those who took extra effort to share and tweet about this giveaway, and though I'd like everyone to win, I of course cannot hand out these prizes to 1000 people. 

The only thing I can do now is to host more giveaways so that you'd have more chances to win prizes! If you didn't win this time, don't feel bad as I already have tons of giveaways planned for the following months and I'm sure that you'd be as excited to join them as you were excited in joining this one. And if you're a loyal fan of the blog and check the page regularly, you'll always find out about updates on new giveaways. And to add, I don't always plan to have giveaways where the winner is randomly selected, so if you feel like these luck games are against you, don't despair as I'll be hosting contest/like based giveaways in the near future as well. 

Thanks again to everyone who joined, and see you on my next giveaway (which is scheduled to start real soon)!
