Giveaway Swellness: Win a cold and flu prep kit from Shoppers Drug Mart



THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. Congrats to Andrew P. who’s won the cold and flu prep kit!

Oh, I love autumn. What I like least about it, though, is that it also means that cold and flu season is here. I still have to go get a flu shot — but as you know, even with the shot, you can still come down with a cold or a strain of flu not included in the shot.

Which is why you will want to win this Cold and Flu Prep Kit from Shoppers Drug Mart (valued at $150). Were you a Brownie as a kid. I was, and the motto, if you recall was “Be Prepared.” So make  like a good Brownie and be prepared for this cold and flu season and enter.

The  Cold and Flu Prep Kit prize includes:

  • one $50 Shoppers Drug Mart gift card
  • a humidifier
  • Life Brand Hand Sanitizer
  • Vapourizing Cold Rub
  • Electrolyte Maintenance Powder
  • Facial tissues
  • Digital Thermometer
  • Cough drops

Be prepared this cold and flu season and enter to win!

How to enter? You can enter in five different ways (each way counts as one entry, so go ahead and enter in all five methods!):

1. Email me at with your name and mailing address. Please put “Shoppers Drug Mart Cold and Flu Prep Kit” in the subject line.

2. Twitter: Follow me on Twitter (@healthswellness) and tweet:

3. Comment on this blog post and tell me when you’re under the weather, if you’re more likely to call in sick or do you force yourself to go into work/school? (btw, you should keep your germs to yourselves, people! Stay home and get better!)

4. Like the Health and Swellness page on Facebook and then leave a comment on the wall post about this Cold and Flu Prep Kit giveaway — tell me what you like to eat or drink when you’re down and out with a cold.

5. Instagram: Follow me on Instagram (@healthandswellness), like the Instagram photo related to this giveaway, and write a comment about what you’ll buy with the $50 Shoppers Drug Mart giftcard if you win this kit.

The prize is valued at $150 and the giveaway will close at 11:59PM on Monday, November 3, 2014. Please note that this giveaway is open to Canadian  residents only. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on Health & Swellness. If I cannot reach the winner within a week, another winner will be selected at random.

Giveaway Swellness: Win a Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear Fit

Samsung Galaxy S5 in blue



A few months ago, I worked out with Tracy Anderson and checked out the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear Fit. The Gear Fit is pretty cool if you’re looking to motivate yourself when it comes to monitoring your health as it’ll help you track your sleep, heart rate and more. Anderson talks more about it here in this video—check it out (I also spy with my little eye myself in this workout class, haha — and for the record, Tracy told me I did a great job in her class…what, what!).

The S5 also has some cool features—Smart Switch allows you to seamlessly transfer contacts, photos and music. And if you’re like me, you panic when your smartphone is low on battery, right? Well, the S5 has Ultra Power Saving Mode, which gives you 24 hours of battery life with only 10 percent of a battery charge.

As for the camera, it’s a 16 megapixel camera that features high-dynamic range, selective focus and a super fast Auto Focus of up to 0.3 seconds.

Plus the phone is certified IP67 dust and water resistance, so you can feel confident your phone isn’t being harmed by everyday elements.

Sound good? Want one? Well, then, you should enter my giveaway! I have one Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear Fit package to give away (valued at $1,000).


The giveaway is open to Canadian residents and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. The winner will be chosen at random. (Should I be unable to reach the winner within 48 hours, another will be selected.)

You can enter once each of the four ways. Ready? Here’s how to enter:

  1. Email. Email me at Please include your mailing address and phone number, and put “Samsung Galaxy and Gear Fit” in the subject line.
  2. Instagram. Follow me on Instagram (I’m @healthandswellness on Instagram) and then regram the Instagram photo I’ve posted for this giveaway with caption: So @healthandswellness is giving away a @SamsungCanada Galaxy S5 and Gear Fit, and I want to win! Visit to find out how you can enter.
