This blog post is extremely overdue, as you can see by the title, this blog post is a combination of competition wins from September 2018 on wards right up until January 2019. I have no excuses really other than my normal excuse and that’s family life, there never seems to be enough hours in the day juggling work, home life & 3 kids.
To shorten down my blog post I’m just going to list what I’ve won and when/how I won it.
Children’s lunch bag won on Instagram with Nuby
A personalized Christmas eve plate won with jenjenscraftcreations on Instagram
Vamperina toy guitar – won from a children’s magazine entry/email
A children’s book from DK Books which was an online entry
Chocolate Advent calendar worth £9.95 from Heavenly Chocolate on Facebook
Disney Cars walkie talkies – I’m not sure where this one came from, this one was anonymous with no letter which is rather frustrating, I put this one away for Charlie’s birthday
A pink mi-potty won on Instagram – perfect for Spring when we start potty training with Daisy
Sweet Pups from Animals & You Magazine – Email entry
In the night garden book which was won online in an advent competition
Tanning cream & tanning mitten – won on Instagram with siennaxofficial
Face Oils – won with sofialatifoils on Instagram
£30 worth of candles won on Instagram with Shiredalecandles, I was really chuffed with this prize because I absolutely adore candles and these are fantastic, they smell divine and I even got to pick which scents I wanted.
Katy Sue Christmas Moulds won on Facebook with Party Animal Online Sugar Crafts
2 bags of coffee won on Instagram with mevagisseycoffee
A blush pink and rose gold watch and bracelet set from Damart – this was an advent competition on Facebook. I absolutely love the watch and strangely enough I had put a blush pink watch on my Christmas list, talk about fate!
A Kelloggs Elf on the shelf breakfast party pack – won inside our Rice Krispies!
Pull my finger game – this one just turned up out of the blue and I have no idea where this one came from, my boys love this game, they just love how the monkey’s butt inflates and farts, just up their street!
£10 online voucher with Cafepod – won on Facebook
£600 worth of treatments with thestudioxh1 on Instagram, be warned when enter competitions, don’t get carried away and enter any old random ones because this is what happens if you do. My and my good friend Patricia (my comping buddy) both won this, this was a prize for you and your friend but neither of us checked the location of the salon and it turned out to be miles away. To be honest, I really wouldn’t have gone through with this prize, I’m not brave enough to try Micropigmentation lip blush, sounds a bit scary!
2 boxes of hair dye from a Facebook competition with Colour Freedom, I think someone secretly heard my inner thoughts, just lately the grey hairs have been sneaking through and I kept saying to myself that I really must dye my hair and blow me I go and win some! Got to be some kind of Law of Attraction thing going on here!
A Zimplikids crazy bundle on Instagram – this was quite exciting to win, my husband unfortunately doesn’t share my excitement. I won an amazing bundle of Gellibaff products and slime products. I wasn’t expecting the bundle to be so big, we have 8 of their products in total. I’ve not told the boys and am struggling to keep my excitement to myself, I’ve put a few packs away for Alfie’s birthday coming up in April, I want to keep a few for summer which will be great to have out in the garden and depending on the shelf life of these products I would really like to hold some back for Christmas.
My final win to end the month was from Butterkist popcorn on Instagram and was from their National popcorn day competition, we won a fantastic prize consisting of a £50 Odeon voucher and a box of tasty Butterkist popcorn for all the family to enjoy.
February wins have already started coming including a win from the Postcode Lottery which I will fill you in on next month.
Thanks for reading and I hope this blog post has given you all some motivation to keep going.
