First of all, I am glad that this sharing experience of why I love Cozycot.com does not limit me to any number of words, or else I will definitely have a tough time expressing all my lovely and memorable experiences I had in the past 1.5 years since I joined Cozycot.com.
I have to admit I am really addicted to Cozycot.com that I can spend hours here in Cozycot.com almost every single day since day 1 that I joined.From head to toe, I can easily find discussion threads on the topics I am interested. Of course, it also covers topics beyond beauty and fashion, like food, travel, entertainment, relationships, health, sports, weddings and many other threads where like-minded cotters come in together to share on their experiences and giving each other valuable advices. In fact, I always tell my friends whatever topics or information that they can think of or want to find out more, they can always find the answers in Cozycot.com.
Throughout this 1.5 years, I got to know many like-minded friends through events or even in the threads. It actually feel good to be able to meet the lovely faces behind those nicknames..Here in Cozycot.com, we know each other by our unique nicknames ( For myself, I am happy_paradise) so its very natural for us to address each other nicknames and not our actual names when we actually met, maybe we are just so used in addressing the person in her nickname that we tend to call each other our nicknames when we meet at events...
Do you know 6 months after I joined Cozycot.com, I found out that one of the cotters was actually my primary school mate, someone whom I had came across in my younger days for 6 years, and her classroom was just next room to mine.. And I only realised that on my 3rd meet up with her when I told her she look very familiar to me.. So please do not be surprised to find a familiar face when you attend any event.. The world is really small, the person behind the nickname may be your lost found friend!
Actually it is really true when I said that you really can know alot of information from sales to product reviews here, you dont even have to travel to that place in person, to know what is going on, or whether they are stocks for that particular sales item that you have been eyeing on.. because we have very helpful cotters islandwise to share their findings... like what gifts with purchase for magazine at a particular bookshop, where your favourite food stall has moved to, how much that shop or this shop is selling for a particular item, how to go from this place to that place, what items are available at the sale venue, you really can find all answers here.. ( In fact, I got to know that one of my favourite beef noodles at the old Scotts place, has relocated to Ang Mo Kio Hub food court a few months back)
That is certainly not all....
Cozycot.com even give us many chances to participate in focus groups, new product launches, and special events where we learnt valuable tips from the experts. There is a rave board (under REVIEWS) for us to review the products we have tried, so that cotters who are interested can find out more about the product before making a purchase. And whenever we rave on the cosmetics or skincare products at the rave board, we get to earn points which we can redeem a range of fabulous gifts from our generous sponsors.
Very often, our kind sponsors also offer us complimentary new product samples for us to try, like perfume vials, full size mascaras, skincare and haircare products etc...
And not to forget, there are always contests every now and then for us to win great prizes from our generous sponsors.. Here are some of the things that I have won through the contests organised by Cozycot.com and our generous sponsors, over these 1.5 years: ( you got to believe its all true.. because I am one of the lucky winners to these fabulous prizes)

Thank you gals for dividing my sadness, unhappiness and hearing me rant my problems during this difficult period of mine. I will be more than happy to share your joys and happiness under the Daily Raves thread.
