December’s been quite a good month on the winning front, the echo dot that I won back in November arrived at the start of December, I wrapped this up for Christmas for my boys Alfie & Charlie. It’s been such a great win and everyone loves it, although I am a little bit sick of hearing ‘House Every Weekend’ which is my four year old’s favorite song at the moment.
December the 1st brought a lovely little win from Instagram and was only day 1 of the Christmas advents starting. I won a lovely pamper set from Ice & Easy, the set included frozen cocktails, glitter nail varnish, a lush bath bomb, face cream, a face pack and some lovely hand cream.
On the 11th day of Christmas my true love gave to me……….. A lovely win on Facebook – a girls sports bundle from Everactiv. I got to select 2 girls t-shirts, a long sleeve top and some leggings from their website. I gifted these to my friend at work for her granddaughter.
The 13th of December brought a Twitter win from Happy Little Soles, this was from a Win it Wednesday competition. I won a lovely pair of Kidofit Roger vegan shoes.
On the 14th of December a mystery package arrived, I just love a mystery package, I’m still left wondering where this one came from. I can only guess it was from an advent competition because it was such a random prize. Wait for it…………………….. an electric pepper grinder, hooray! Just what I always wanted!
I received a lovely winning email on the 27th of December, I was just starting to give up on any further advent wins coming in. Over the Christmas period I managed to build up over 1500 emails in my inbox, it took a while to clear them but this win was so worth doing the tedious job of going through my emails. I don’t remember this advent competition but I’d entered so many that it doesn’t surprise me!
I won Day 21 for the One New Change Advent Calendar and I’ve won a Mariel bag in black thanks to L.K. Bennett which is worth £155, I think this is a prize that needs collecting so I’m not sure how or when I’m going to be able to collect this when the store is located in London.
My final win of 2017 is a small win and was low effort, on the 20th of December I spotted a competition running on Facebook with the company Cashino, you needed to take a picture of anything Christmassy, upload it to their post and leave a comment. I entered the photo below which is of my daughter Daisy. There were originally 3 prizes on offer, 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize but they decided to up the prizes and offered 25 runner up prizes too. I was lucky to win a runner up prize of a £10 voucher, they’ve not asked me where I want the voucher for so I’m waiting for them to confirm this. This one was quite a low entry competition and with many prizes on offer I stood a good chance of winning.
I’m so relieved the advent period is now over, I’d like to say I thoroughly enjoyed it but found there were so many competitions out there that it became a little stressful to try and keep up. I’m looking forward to starting the new year with a clean slate and can’t wait to get back to my normal competitions and my normal comping routine.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas and here’s to lots of lovely wins in 2018. At the top of my list is a Cozmo robot for my sons birthday in April.
Thank You for reading and Happy New Year everyone
