Everyone knows I love competitions, contests and giveaways. Winning prizes is the ultimate experience for me. I love the adrenaline rush of receiving that phone call or email about the grand prize. Some people take it even further – they enter crazy competitions on television and online that will win them more than just a small prize: they could win an entire wedding.
