Welcome back to an unboxing post, we may have skipped a month (apologies) but it’s time to unwrap last months prizes. 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.
October was incredibly busy for me, in the last 5 week’s i’ve been to 4 different conventions and been on two amazing holidays. This mixed with Chase being unwell for a good chunk of the month as well as half term meant I really haven’t been on top of comping – let alone preparing for the onslaught of creative halloween competitions.
I had the massive pleasure of getting to finally meet super comper Di Coke this month at her Super Lucky Live event. It was an amazing day out with so many compers and I was thrilled to be invited along to take part in a live unboxing! You can read all about the event on Super Lucky and check out my video for a glimpse at the goody bag and my own live unboxing at the event! A whopping £4895 was raised for the very worth Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for Sussex.
It was truly a wonderful day and I met so many lovely compers – thank you to anyone that came and said hello. I think everyone who attended had been refreshed with a huge motivation for comping!
This month’s unboxing stats sees 11 prizes opened worth approximately £450. Seeing as I was too busy to write a post for September I have nothing to compare this too however it is by far my quietest month this year value wise.
Check out the video below to see exactly what we won and how we won it!
I’ll be using this month to get prepped for the busiest comping time of the year – the advents! My plan is to clean up all my email accounts, comping bookmarks and to get into a more structured routine. That being said due to ongoing illnesses all my plans seem to be going out of the window at the moment.
I hope you all had a lucky October and huge luck for those wins in November! See you next month,
