Glam & Geeky Mum’s August Prize Unboxing 2019

Glam & Geeky Mum’s August Prize Unboxing 2019

Welcome back everyone to August’s unboxing! For those of you that are new to the blog I’m a comper.  You can read more about my comping and why I do it by clicking the link.  But the short story is that after having to quit work due to keep up with my sons additional needs I needed to find something that meant we could still afford the nicer things in life.

August’s Unboxing

My initial plan over the six week school holidays was to keep the kids entertained with as many creative competitions as I could whist doing the odd social media comp in between – well those plans flew right out of the window!

It was another tough 6 week holidays here with all three of the children falling ill and Chase’s care needs being much higher than I anticipated for much of the holidays.  So I managed pretty much zero creatives, but I did get to use some of our prizes we had won previously squeezing in a visit to Alton Towers.

The Stats

This month’s unboxing stats sees 11 prizes opened worth approximately £1770.  That’s the same number of prizes as July but £890 more in value. This just goes to show how different months can be and also how just one big win can change things. 

Every single win this month came from a random draw, and the most successful platform was Instagram, even though I really didn’t feel like I dedicated that much time to Instagram

The Prizes

Check out the video below to see exactly what we won and how we won it – also we finally have an intro video, hurrah!



The children will be returning to school and once I have the house back in some sense of order I can start looking at the creative competitions again.  I’m also taking one brilliant prize next month shared with another 3 compers which you’ll be seeing more details of on the blog.

Good luck for September everyone, and for those with children, well done on surviving another 6 week holidays!
