Happy 1st of May everybody.
As many of you will know, I'm a comper which means I enter competitions in my spare time to win treats and nice things for my family. April has seen a two week half term, a Bank Holiday and me and my partner redecorating my sons bedroom (more on that to follow in a separate post) so spare time has been limited this past month and so I've had my worst month in terms of number and value for quite a while.
I've still had some lovely wins though...
My first win was £17.50 from Boom25 mainly made up from bonus. This is the first time I've won from them as I tend to go via cashback apps for online purchases usually.
On Instagram I won a bundle of facemasks, footmasks and bath bombs from @Cherryzuk.
I also won a selection of puzzle books from Take a Break on twitter. There were a few competitions inside them which I've made sure to enter too as it's lovely to win a prize on the back of another prize.
Another twitter win is a selection of the Zoella fruity range from Superdrug. I can't wait to receive this as the range looks amazing!
I've won some biscuits from Fox's Biscuits on Facebook.
Whilst most of the World Book Day competitions were effort related I entered a couple of others including one with Go Girl magazine which was a gleam competition. I was lucky enough to win a copy of Sam Wu Is Not Afraid of the Dark for J.
Another book win from a kids mag this time was Ultimate Superstars.
I took part in an online egg hunt competition with Jean Patrique cookwear and won a gorgeous knife set worth £40. They are super sharp and really good quality.
I left buying Easter eggs till the last minute and our local shops had all sold out of the ones that J would like, luckily I won two eggs from a local shopping centre.
A delicious Isle of Arran Cheese hamper arrived from a twitter win that I found by searching for competitions that were ending that day.
I also won a Mary Kay highlighter on twitter where you had to tweet them a picture of an egg they had hidden on their website.
My final win of the month was for J where I received a phone call from Pop tv to tell me he'd won a selection of Superzings.
So there you have it. 12 small wins. All appreciated but hopefully the list next month will be a bit longer.
Have a fantastic May.
