Well we’re one month into the start of a new comping year, and although I had tonnes of enthusiasm I haven’t had anywhere near as much time to put into my comping this month, which means things have taken a bit of a dip compared to how I did most months last year! I haven’t won as many prizes as I did last year but I still had a few nice ones.
Now that Harper has been super mobile (although this is due to change in a weeks time) this means most of my time is spent fishing out things from here mouth or she’s attempting to bash the crap out of my keyboard meaning getting any competitions done during the day is almost impossible as writing the number ‘6’ whilst moving your foot clockwise. My time in the evenings is largely dedicated to my other favourite activity which is matched betting, which i promise I will get my blog post written about this month (keep an eye out for it!)
So without further ado if you’ve all finished trying to write the number ‘6’ whilst moving your foot clockwise on with my rather paltry list of wins this month!
A Ballerina film merchandise bundle
I won this with a simple twitter RT to win competition, there was only a few entries and 2 winners were selected. It’s a lovely little prize pack for Brooke containing a ballerina tutu skirt, a bag, a t-shirt and a beautiful ballerina musical trinket box! I managed to find this competition myself using one of my many daily searches using tweet deck which is why it was so low entry
A Garnier Goody bag
This was a competition over on instagram where you had to show off your #mistletoglow, the top prize was £1000 in holiday vouchers – i didn’t actually realise there were runners-up prizes so when i saw i had a message from them I got a bit over excited thinking I had won the main prize (doh!) I received 2 bottles of fake tan, a clay facial scrub and a timer – presumably to time your fake tan!
Maybelline and Sleek Make-up
I love entering giveaways on blogs as they tend to be low entry a ms they can sometimes take a little longer to enter (remember effort required means a lot of people can’t be bothered!). I do love my make-up so this was a lovely win
Byron Burgers Vouchers for 2
This prize was also an instagram win that required you to show off your #cheesyxmasjumper, I actually reused my picture from the Garnier competition and won again, I’m yet to receive this prize and I imagine I’m going to have to end up chasing it with the promoter but I’m really looking forward to the free burgers for me and hubby!
Animal Jam Figurines
I do love it when a parcel turns up that I’m not expecting and inside is a prize I knew nothing about! I won these from Girls World magazine with an email entry, I’m going to try to get a few more kids magazine wins this year and save them up for birthdays and Christmas (last year Christmas cost me £25 for all 5 kids!)
And that’s it! For the amount of time and effort I actually put into entering competitions this month I actually don’t think that I did that bad. I imagine over the next few months I may struggle to enter a lot of them especially the effort ones as Harper’s going to need a lot of extra care – but that being said I’m going to enter what i can because winners never quit and quitters never win!
Other brilliant comping blog posts this month
I’ve read some brilliant posts by other comping bloggers this month, i love reading about other people’s wish lists as well as seeing what other compers have won as it motivates me to enter more I’ve listed some of my favourite comping blog articles I’ve read below so you can check out other compers styles.
Lorna at Mission Competition shared a great bunch of tips about the lull after the christmas advents and how to get yourself organised
Ellie at the Nutty Squirrel managed to get her 2017 wish list sorted (I’m yet to do mine…)
Neill at Gary Wasabi’s Golden luck muscle had a great post about comping admin (mainly because the thought of spreadsheets satisfies the nerd in me!)
And finally i loved reading this post from new blogger Autumn’s Mummy about why she loves Mondays!
You can also find unboxing videos on Youtube such as Super Lucky Di’s below, a few days into Febuary you’ll usually be able to find a playlist too of other compers wins as they share them!
