Look In My Letterbox

I had absolutely nothing to show you last week. All that arrived were the usual junk mailings. I’ve put myself on a spending ban this month so no online sales shopping for me. Thankfully a few things did arrive this week. Here’s this weeks look in my letterbox.

Prizes

I love it when prizes arrive for the kids, even better when they are addressed to them personally. It was Jake’s turn this week to get something nice through the letterbox. He won a Milkshake DVD and a Milkshake comic.

Freebies

I signed Daisy up for the free Lego club a couple of years ago. They send magazines regularly and Daisy is always excited when it arrives. She particularly likes the pull-out posters and the puzzles.

Just before Christmas Sky Store were offering customers a free gift. We got a code for a free buy and keep film so we chose Suicide Squad. I really enjoyed the film even though I hadn’t heard good reviews about it. Sky store were really generous last year with their free promotions I’m hoping they continue the trend this year.

Look In My Letterbox

I don’t have much to show you this week but with the two fabulous wins I’ve had this week I really can’t complain. You can read about one of my amazing wins on my Word of the Week post and I will tell you about the other below. Here’s what arrived for this weeks look in my letterbox.

Prizes

I’ve really enjoyed getting back into reading this year so I’ve been entering competitions for books that look exciting, I won this from a one of the book blogs that I follow it’s been translated and sounds like a gritty read.

IMG_1330[1]

The day after my huge win this letter arrived from Real People magazine to say I had won £150 in one of their puzzle competitions, I’m over the moon and can’t wait to buy a few treats with the cheque.

Reviews

IMG_1292[1]

I haven’t reviewed anything on Amazon lately but accepted these bulbs as we are in the process of swapping all our bulbs over to more economical ones.

So that’s all for this week, hopefully I will be back next week with some more lovely things to show you.

 

Look In My Letterbox

I didn’t realise until Tuesday that I hadn’t shared last weeks look in my letterbox. I did get a few nice things in the post so instead of missing a week I’ve combined two weeks into one post.

Last weekend I rekindled my love of comping and I’ve been spending some of my spare time entering for prizes I would really like to win. I’m trying out some different methods and also going back to basics to help me get back into the swing of things again. I have been comping for almost 14 years and I don’t think I will ever give up.

Prizes

IMG_1048

This beautiful book is from the Mumsnet book club. I can’t read it without getting a little teary because the guy who wrote it lost his little boy and wrote the book in his memory.

IMG_1183[1]

I won these Aftamath drinks on Instagram, they are giving two cans away every day during August.

 Freebies

IMG_1049

How pretty are the colours of these tea samples, they taste delicious too. I think this freebie from Taylors might be my favourite of this year so far.

IMG_1051

I never get a huge amount of Tesco clubcard vouchers as we don’t shop their regularly but every little helps as they say.

Reviews

IMG_1025

This awesome neoprene lunchbag from Bibetta arrived for Jake. We have a few picnics planned for the Summer so it arrived at just the right time. Look out for a review coming soon.

IMG_1050

This colourful Hartley’s lunch box arrived from Britmums. I will be featuring it soon in a blog post about back to school lunch ideas.

IMG_1095

Daisy was very excited when this Minnie Mouse fashion doll arrived for her to review. We have one of the dolls to giveaway so make sure you check out the review and enter for your chance to win.

IMG_1178[1]

I’m always looking for things to help us fight some of the symptoms of hayfever so I’m more than happy to review this Serenz allergy relief, so far so good expect a review post soon.

IMG_1182[1]

Anybody who follows me on Instagram might have spotted that I regularly post pictures when I find a new fun edition of Carex handwash in the shop. It’s a firm favourite in our house in both the bathroom and the kitchen so I was delighted when Swizzels sent me their Love Hearts collaboration it smells delicious.

Purchase

IMG_1184[1]

This photo does not do this adorable figure justice, I had some fun money to spend so I chose this Rock Candy vinyl collectable I love her colours and the pose she is stood in.

Look In My Letterbox

This week has been nice and steady for post arriving, I’ve had some freebies, one prize and some purchases but I can’t show you those as they are a birthday present so top secret. I’ve been thinking lately about the good old days of comping where nice surprises would arrive every week, I do miss that but I just haven’t had the time I would like to dedicate to entering competitions lately.

Freebies

IMG_0883[1]

This cute little Guerlain freebie arrived from SoPost, the perfume smells lovely.

IMG_0885[1]

I got these Johnson’s baby wipes from BzzAgent, I just have to try them and write a review, this is the brand we use for Jake so I already know I like them.

IMG_0884[1]

These sample sachets of Kerastase are another SoPost freebie I love trying hair care samples although with having long hair they don’t always go that far.

IMG_0887[1]

I cashed out these Argos vouchers from consumer pulse and I’ve already put them to good use buying some Christmas presents.

IMG_0889[1]

I think these activity packs from the rspb are brilliant it arrived just in time for the Summer holidays Daisy and I will have fun taking part.

Prizes

IMG_0888[1]

It really was a case of being in the right place at the right time when I won these free meal vouchers from Amy’s kitchen on Twitter, you had to be one of the first five people to retweet and only one other person had, I love their macaroni cheese it’s delicious.

Look In My Letterbox

I’m a little late with this weeks look in my letterbox, last week was quite slow for exciting post with just a couple of freebies, one review item and a purchase. I’m hoping it means that this week will be a bumper week as I’ve been applying for lots of freebies and entering lots of competitions.

Freebies

IMG_0853[1]

I applied for this coupon on the Alpro website, it’s still working so make sure you grab one before they all go.

IMG_0876[1]

I love this fun set from The Woodland Trust we are going to use it over the Summer, they are still available if you haven’t applied for one yet.

Purchases

IMG_0851[1]

I like to buy the more expensive toiletries in bulk as I find them to be better value, FrugalMrW was in need of some new blades so I ordered this value pack from Amazon for £20.

Review

IMG_0861[1]

This lovely box of fresh fruit and vegetables arrived on Saturday morning from Creamline Dairies, look out for a review coming soon.

Look In My Letterbox

It’s been a pretty good week this week, I’ve had freebies, prizes and some purchases arrive so I’ve got lots to show you so lets get on and look in my letterbox.

*Apologies for the quality of the photo’s*

Freebies

IMG_0808

The Weetabix on the go was a SoPost freebie from Twitter, I’ve left the leaflet in the picture incase anyone would like to enter the competition. My advice with the SoPost freebies is to team up with a like minded friend on Twitter and Facebook and send each other one as soon as they pop up.

IMG_0832

I spotted this toothpaste freebie on one of the couponing pages I follow on Facebook, I thought they would run out quickly as it’s quite a generous size so I got in fast and ordered mine.

Prizes

IMG_0806

I should have took a picture of this boxes contents as it’s much more exciting than the outside, I won £15 credit for Stampin Up! from a blog competition and I chose this Project Life set, the cards inside are lovely and I will use them in my happy mail.

IMG_0811

Daisy won this awesome book from Toppsta, if you have little ones make sure you pop across and enter the competitions for them this is the second book we have won from them and they always have a fantastic selection to choose from.

IMG_0812

Another lovely book for the children, this time from a blog competition.

IMG_0831

Finally a book for Mummy and it looks a little racy, I applied to review it for the Mumsnet book club, I had a book from them last month which I really enjoyed so I’m looking forward to reading this one.

Purchases

IMG_0820

Jake is getting to the point where he doesn’t like being in his buggy anymore but he runs away from me when I let him out to walk so I’ve compromised by buying this toddler backpack that has a reign attached, so far so good.

IMG_0845

We bought this fire stick in the Amazon Prime day sale, we have being debating buying one for a while and the time and price seemed right.

I’m linking up with Alice Megan for Look In My Letterbox, make sure you pop across and check out the other lovely bloggers taking part.

Look In My Letterbox

I’m back again to share with you all the goodies that have arrived in this weeks post, it’s so much nicer to receive little surprises though the letterbox rather than a load of bills and junk mail. I’ve noticed that the amount of freebies to apply for is increasing again and I was gutted to miss out on two fantastic SoPost freebies this week they went so fast which proves that this hobby is becoming more popular this doesn’t deter me it just makes me more determined to try even harder.

Freebies

IMG_0788[1]

Eat Natural do the best freebies, their bars are delicious and I have the perfect spot in the garden to plant the wildflower leaves in Autumn.

IMG_0803[1]

Post-it are another generous company for giving away freebies, I love this new range as an avid maker of lists the ruled sticky pages are ideal for me.

IMG_0804[1]

This sample came last week but I had managed to bury it at the bottom of a pile of paperwork so I didn’t include it, I love these free samples much better than buying a full size product only to find it doesn’t suit you.

Prizes

IMG_0802[1]

I entered every competition I could find to win tickets to the Foodies Festival at Tatton Park, although I won’t be able to sample as many of the sweet goodies on offer it’s still a great day out for us all.

IMG_0800[1]

If you read my Toy Collecting post last week you will know that Daisy loves these little surprise toys, the envelope was addressed to her and she was so excited to open it and find a Finding Dory Squishy Pop inside, don’t forget I have a giveaway running for some collectable toys so make sure you click the link above.

Happy Mail

IMG_0805[1]

This lovely letter arrived from one of my pen pals, I can’t tell you how happy these letters make me it’s so nice connecting with people by handwritten word. I think I’m going to look for some more pen pals soon as I have loved writing and receiving happy mail so much.

I’m linking up with Alice Megan for Look In My Letterbox, do stop and by and check out all the other great bloggers who link up.

I was going to give this weeks look in my letterbox a miss but I do enjoy sharing with you all the nice things that arrive every week. I have a prize, a freebie, a review item and a purchase to show you.

Prizes

IMG_0644[1]

I won this family Tatton Park ticket from a local Facebook page competition. We have lots of days out to plan this Summer and all for free thanks to this wonderful hobby.

I’ve been sent these earphones to review. They wrap round your wrist so you can ‘wear your sound’ look out for a review coming soon.

Freebie

IMG_0650[1]

We have tried Naturelly Jelly Juice a few times and the kids love it. I’m really happy with this coupon for a free juice and money off another purchase. I’ve reviewed Naturelly Jelly Juice in the past.

Purchase

IMG_0651[1]

I first bought a copy of The Secret when I was holiday in the USA. Almost a year after reading itmy life changed completely. I really believe that the things I learned from reading this book brought my husband into my life and set me on the path to where I am now. I lent my copy to someone and never got it back and have really wanted to replace it ever since so I treated myself to it with some vouchers I had tucked away.

Look In My Letterbox

I have a little bit of a mixed bag to show you for this weeks look in my letterbox. I did win a prize this week but it hasn’t arrived yet. I really must try and get back into the swing with competitions I keep dipping in and out just lately.

Freebies

IMG_0603[1]

This delicious freebie from The Good Guru arrived really quickly. I only applied for it at the beginning of the week.

IMG_0604[1]

I redeemed two more Argos vouchers from Consumer Pulse. I’m saving them up all year and spend them at Christmas.

IMG_0607[1]

Daisy loves it when this freebie Lego magazine pops through the letterbox. Batman is her favourite super hero so she was doubly delighted with it this month.

IMG_0615[1]

I love these shampoo and conditioner samples, you can decide if you like the product without wasting money on a full sized product.

Reviews

IMG_0602[1]

I’m reading and reviewing this book from Mumsnet book club. It’s been ages since I read an actual book I usually read on my kindle so I’m really looking forward to diving in it’s pages this weekend.

IMG_0621[1]

I’ve been sent this umbrella to review on Amazon. I’m being really selective with the products I get offered to review nowadays but I needed a new umbrella and this one is great as it’s windproof and really good quality.

Purchases

IMG_0601[1]

I’m really happy with this months pop in a box delivery but it will be my last one for a while, I’m cancelling all of my subscription boxes while I concentrate on our savings but i will definitely sign up again in the future.

 

 

Look In My Letterbox

This weeks Look In My Letterbox is a little on the light side with just a few freebies and one lovely piece of happy mail for Daisy from her teacher.

I’ve spotted a few more freebies appearing again this week and I’ve been squeezing in a little comping each day so hopefully lots more goodies will arrive soon.

Happy Mail

IMG_0461[1]

This lovely postcard arrived for Daisy from her teacher. It’s to tell her how well she is doing with her reading and writing, this made her so happy.

Freebies

IMG_0466[1]

We took part in a teeth brushing app trial with Talk Health.They sent us this big tube of Aquafresh little teeth for filling in the questionnaire afterwards.

IMG_0467[1]

I can’t remember where I applied for this freebie. We’ve tried these Upbeat drinks before and really liked them.

IMG_0468[1]

I can’t remember where this one is from either. I really must start writing down what I apply for and from where, this hand lotion smells amazing.
