Sweetly UK Review and Giveaway

Regular readers of the blog will know that I’ve given some delicious American candy bundles away over the last few months so when the lovely folks at Sweetly UK got in touch to ask if I would like to review one of their new American candy subscription boxes and run a giveaway for my readers of course I said yes.

Sweetly is a brand new American candy box subscription service, when you join you will receive a monthly package containing a hand-picked selection of American candy, soda and sweeties and snacks.  Each box contains 12-14 items including at least 5 premium items. The subscription plans are totally flexible you can cancel pause and upgrade at any time.

When my box arrived I couldn’t believe how much they had managed to squeeze into the box, I’ve tried lots of American candy so I was surprised that there were loads of goodies in the box that I had never tried before. I of course had to limit myself to a few nibbles which was fins as i had a few willing taste testers to share with, my absolute favourite in the box was the 5th Avenue chocolate bar which is a combination of chocolate and crunchy peanut butter. My crazy children absolutely loved trying the extremely sour Lemonhead and nerds candy.

img_2334 img_2337 img_2344 img_2345I think the boxes are great value considering how expensive it can be to buy all the items individually and you get to try lots of new and different goodies each month, if you have a sweet tooth and love subscription boxes then this is the box for you. You can get 10% off your first order by entering the code WEBSTERLAND10.

Sweetly have kindly offered to send one of my lucky readers a box of their own to enjoy, you can enter with the Gleam app below there is one mandatory task and the rest are optional, you can even come back every day for extra entries.

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

IMG_1291[1]

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.

 

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

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

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

I don’t have a lot to show you this week. Up until Wednesday nothing had arrived at all so I thought I would be giving this weeks Look In My Letterbox a miss.  Postal freebies are so thin on the ground at moment and the ones that are available seem to be going really fast.

I’m back into the swing of things with my favourite hobby comping. I have put in every spare moment I’ve had this week so I’m hoping to reap the rewards of that soon.

FreebiesIMG_0251I’m not sure whether to class this as a freebie as such. It’s £3 that I can spend on something nice though.IMG_0252I spotted this freebie at last minute. It will save us some money over the Summer as we have a couple of train trips planned.

PrizesIMG_0253I won First Animals and First Animal Homes  from BrainBox games Facebook page. Daisy and I spent a rainy afternoon this week playing with them.

ReviewsIMG_0254I’ve been sent two of these selfie phone clips from Paladone. One for review and another to giveaway on my blog. I’m terrible at taking selfies someone’s head always gets cut out of the photo.Hopefully this will help.

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.

Look In My Letterbox

This week has been a good week for nice parcels arriving, I have one prize, a few freebies, a few review items and a purchase to show you in this weeks Look In My Letterbox.

I’m expecting the next few weeks to be a little bit lean as I’m spending some time away from my usual pursuits to do some home improvement and organisation, I know I won’t be able to resist the call of comping and bargain hunting totally so I will have something to show you hopefully.

Prizes

IMG_0107[1]

When I was at Blog On I entered a few of the prize draws that the brands were running and was delighted when I had an email to say I could choose a pair of Hotter shoes to review, as much as I loved all the sandals I really wanted to try these Solar shoes with the Memorise foam insoles I want to get back into walking for exercise so I thought these would be perfect.

Freebies

IMG_0099[1]

I’ve not been applying for free items to review on Amz just lately but I couldn’t resist this serum, I have tried a few of the PurOrganica skin products and I really like them.

IMG_0098[1]

I also got this facial steamer for free to review on Amazon, going to a beauty salon for a treatment is way out of my budget at the moment so being able to pamper myself at home is fantastic.

IMG_0103[1]

This arrived at just the right time as I’m on the last dregs of my usual moisturiser, it’s from Bzzz Agent I haven’t done many campaigns recently but really wanted to try this as my skin tends to get dry over the Summer.

Purchases

IMG_0097[1]

I’m really happy with this months Pop In A Box subscription, I wanted this Batman to add to my collection, I love not knowing what pop will arrive next.

I’m linking up with Alice Megan for this weeks Look In My Letterbox, if you like these kind of blog posts then be sure to check her link out.
