Word of the Week – Win

On Wednesday we had planned to meet up with some friends at the park for an afternoon play date, I woke up feeling a little yucky I’ve not been sleeping very well and the heat wasn’t helping. I felt like staying home and if I’m honest the last thing I wanted to be was sociable but I pulled my socks up and went anyway, as we reached the park a bird pooped on me and let me tell you it was that big I thought it might have been a squirrel. Instead of heading home I rolled my sleeves right up and got on with it.

The children had a great time playing with their friends on the park it was a beautiful day and we all know those have been few and far between lately. After having a giggle at my misfortune my friends remarked that it was lucky for a bird to poop on you and that I would win the lottery and you know what they weren’t that far off the mark with what happened next.

Word of the Week (5)

The children and I headed home and Jake took his afternoon nap, I didn’t check my emails until late afternoon and when I did I had the most wonderful surprise awaiting me. I’ve been entering consumer competitions for almost 15 years now it’s a wonderful hobby that has brought me so many wonderful prizes and experiences over the years but what I won on Wednesday blew me away.

Dreams have been running a weekly competition over the summer and I won on week 6 which was £8000 worth of goodies, here’s what I will receive

  1. Bedroom makeover (£4,000 to spend at Dreams)
  2. Samsung 55″ Smart TV
  3. Sonos Playbar Home Cinema Sound Bar
  4. Apple Ipad Air 64GB
  5. Nikon Coolpix bridge camera
  6. Bose® SoundLink™ On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones with Mic/Remote
  7. Michael Kors Handbag
  8. KitchenAid Artisan Cook Processo

I wish you could all have seen my reaction to that email, I’m still in shock and of course delighted and so so grateful to have won.

This weeks word of the week couldn’t be anything but win, I’m linking up as usual with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence .

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

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.

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.

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.

Real Handful Snacks – Review & Giveaway

I first tried a sample of Real Handful snacks earlier this month at the Blog On MSI conference, I tried Mochaccino and Banoffee mixes which were both delicious so I was delighted when the brand got in touch and asked if I would like to try one of their hand packed ration boxes and an extra one to offer as a prize to one of my lovely readers.

Real Handful are a healthier impulse snack, they come in a variety of flavours and contain a mix of the best quality dried fruits, whole nuts and seeds with added ingredients like natural flavours, chocolate and yoghurt. Not only are they tasty and delicious they are ideal as an on the go snack or an afternoon pick me up when you need a little extra fuel.

IMG_9820

The ration box I tried contained the following flavours:

Strawberries & Cream – A Summer time blend of juicy strawberry flavoured raisins, strawberries, cranberries, white chocolate chunks and cashews.

Blood Orange & Dark Chocolate – A fabulous blend of blood orange flavoured sultanas, orange flavoured cranberries, dark chocolate and peanuts.

Blueberry Blitz – A vibrant blend of blueberries, blueberry flavoured cranberries, jumbo flame raisins and whole cashews.

Mixed Berry Crunch – A very berry blend of blueberry yoghurt raisins, strawberries, cranberries and whole Almonds.

IMG_9821[1]

My favourite flavour is the Blueberry Blitz the combination of flavours and the chunky cashews taste so delicious, Daisy tried the snacks with me and she loved the Mixed Berry Crunch especially the blueberry yoghurt raisins, we shared a bag as an afternoon snack as the portions are really generous.

I’m really impressed with the quality of the ingredients, everything tasted as described and the dried fruit was so juicy and all the combinations I tried blended so well together.

Tangled: Rapunzel & Pascal Pop! Funko Vinyl Giveaway

Lots of you entered my Easter giveaway and I has so much fun running it that I thought I would offer another giveaway, this time you can win a Tangled: Rapunzel & Pascal Pop! Funko Vinyl.

IMG_9353[1]

I first spotted Pop! Funko vinyl’s last year when I bought one as a birthday gift, I loved the look of them but wasn’t sure I wanted to start a collection, that was until I got my first one for Christmas, that and I kept seeing them on some blogs that I love to read.

My own collection is only small at the moment but I’m intending to grow it, I’m currently collecting the Munster’s and I have my eye on Sam an Dean Winchester from Supernatural to add next.

I thought  giving one away as a prize might introduce you to the wonderful world of Pop! Funko or perhaps add to your own collection, you can enter using the gleam app below, don’t forget to come back every day for the bonus entries on the app.

e.l.f Make-up Giveaway

Hi Folks

It’s been a while since I ran a giveaway for my lovely readers, I’m in the process of having a sort out, I’m hoping to get organised before tiny Webster arrives in May.

As some of readers will remember I got a fantastic offer from e.l.f last year, a huge bundle of make-up at a fantastic price, while sorting out I’ve come across some bits & bobs that I know I will never use, it’s all brand new & never used so I thought why not offer it as a little prize bundle. I have also popped in a Max Factor Lip Tint.

Entry is by Rafflecopter.
UK Entrants Only.
One Entry Per Person.
Winner has 3 days to respond, failure to do so will result in the giveaway being re-drawn.

Webster’s Week In Wins 9th-15th December 2013

Hi Folks

It’s been a bumper week here for freebies & prizes, I’m found my courage again to use coupons(more about that later) and have taken full advantage of O2’s generosity with their Priority Moments.

I will start by telling about some coupons for free products which are around at the moment, some are still available & I will include a link.
Alpro Almond Milk have a coupon for a free carton of their original milk, this is still available but be quick.
Nouvelle had coupons for a free pack of loo roll, sadly they have run out now.
Shaken Udder Milkshake have a coupon for a 3 pack of their cartons of milkshake redeemable at Sainsburys.
A bottle of Just Milk’s new Lactose free milk, these have all gone.

I had a problem at Sainsbury’s with the coupons, they told me they don’t accept printed coupons, a quick call revealed they actually do so it was resolved but very embarrassing non the less.

Above are all the goodies from O2 Priority Moments, Chris & I are both have O2 as our mobile phone providers so we can doubly redeem the goodies.

In the picture above you will see a Chalk Mug, this has come from Love Cravendale they are currently giving away some more mugs with quotes on, enter by the 20th December 2013. Also on their Facebook page they have a daily giveaway, even if you don’t win a prize you get a love heart point which you can use to enter prize draws.

Above are my Chocolate goodies from last week Marks & Spencer Pass The Parcel game on Facebook, what’s better than Free Chocolate !

My other goodies included a Rimmel Mascara, a sample of Special K porridge, a prize from the Stella Magazine promotion which I think should have been full size, a California Raisin goodie bag, a Child’s cinema ticket to see Disney’s new film Frozen and some scent samples from Burberry Brit which is still available.

Happy Freebie Hunting & Be Lucky x
