Sometimes I find that wins come at exactly the right moment and this one certainly did. One of the things D has wanted me to try to win is a PS4 as he has a few grumbles with them (such as them not being backwards compatible) which meant neither of us could see the point in paying out to upgrade our PS3’s. Anyway, 4 days before our 1st wedding anniversary I received another message from Walkers on Twitter to say I’d won something via theirΒ  promotion (I assumed it was another football at first) so I hoped over to my DM’s and stared shocked at the screen as I tried to take in that I had won a PS4 (and download code for Konami Pro Evolution Soccer 2017). Once I had I decided that it would make a nice surprise extra gift for D for our anniversary so I made a little card and put it inside the gift I had for him already. He was surprised when he found out and very pleased and when it arrived he was really happy so now we have to get some games for him, he’s got me Lego Dimensions with the Fantastic Beasts packs for my Birthday so I just have to wait for him to connect it all up which will hopefully be over the weekend πŸ˜€

This morning I received a lovely surprise in the post, this Hyaluronic Acid Serum! I believe that I have won this from the competitions run through House and Garden and from February’s set of Daily ones if I am correct in my searching.

This is a type of product I use myself but I have not tried this brand yet so I’ll add this one in to try out once my current serum has been exhausted πŸ˜€

Deliveries 24th February 2017

As many of you know I’ve spent much of this year so far in the hospital and for a while in the future I will be too as they try to figure out just what is wrong with me. At some point I may write a post about my experiences but right now it doesn’t make much sense to me so I’ve no idea how to make it make sense for anyone who reads this! I have made a decision to try and get back to normal even with all this madness going on in the background and so starting doing my deliveries posts again is a step on the road back to my life so here goes πŸ˜€

I received this razor from Wilkinson Sword. I’m not sure exactly if it’s a win, freebie or trial product due to the email I received stating “Remember that Wilkinson Sword trial you applied for? You won!” but whichever it is, it will come in handy, good razors always do πŸ˜€

Advent Calendars – Days 24 & 25

I decided to open tomorrow’s one box today as I’m expecting to be busy most of the day and this way you all can see everything that came in the calendars πŸ™‚

Day 24

day-24

On the left is a tube of Wonder Body from my Sanctuary calendar. It claims to hydrate, illuminate, transform, refine, even, correct and perfect. Well, that’s a lot to live up to, I’m going to have to try this out at some point!

Next to that is a cute little smiley notebook which was the last item from my Mrs Brimbles calendar. It has some lined pages inside and some blank coloured ones as well, I have some idea’s for uses for this, it just depends on what Santa delivers tonight πŸ˜‰

Next to that on the bottom is a Burt’s Bees’ beeswax lip balm with vitamin E and peppermint which came from my M&S calendar. Always handy to have around the house and in my bag so another I’m pleased to receive.

Above that you can see that D’s last lindor of the day was a final red one πŸ™‚

Top right is a bottle of Fleurs de Cerisier eau de toilette from my L’Occitane calendar. This smells really lovely and I’m so pleased to have this alongside the other items from this fragrance range.

Day 25

day-25

The final box has come from my M&S calendar and held a bottle of Shay & Blue Atropa Belladonna fragrance. This is really lovely, I had to smell it when I opened it and it seemed very light to me with a slight sherbertyness to it πŸ˜€

Advent Calendars – Day 23

Only 1 more full day of these to go now, I’m thinking I might cheat with the M&S calendar and open box 25 tomorrow as it’s the only one that has the 25th day so it would be all lonely if I left it πŸ˜‰

day-23

On the left is the most amazing (to me) thing that has come from my Mrs Brimbles calendar so far and that is saying something as I have been amazed by almost everything that I’ve discovered! This is a pair of mini scissors! When I opened it and saw it said it was scissors my first thought was “No way!” I then opened it up and found that actually it really is a pair of scissors and they are quite good ones too! The cap comes off to reveal the blades held together with a small band, remove the band and the black edge springs out to reveal itself as the second arm of the scissors. Another reason to be amazed, this is the first pair of scissors I have received in many years that has not required the use of scissors (or more violent means) to extract them from their packaging!

Bottom right is a tube of Roses et Reines hand cream from my L’Occitane calendar which smells exactly as it sounds like it should.

Above that on the left is a tube of Gentle Polish Body Scrub from my Sanctuary calendar.

Next to that is Studio 10 Miracle Effect priming serum from my M&S calendar, I wonder if this one can live up to its name?

Top right is D’s lindor of the day and today’s one is a red milk chocolate one πŸ™‚

Advent Calendars – Day 22

day-22

Top left is a very cute coin purse (?) from my Mrs Brimbles calendar.

Next to that is a bottle of Gentle toner enriched with Shea from my L’Occitane calendar

Top right is a tube of Velvety hand cream from my Sanctuary calendar

Bottom left is D’s lindor of the day and today’s one has a milk chocolate shell filled with White chocolate πŸ™‚

Bottom right is a Leighton Denny mini crystal nail file from my M&S calendar. It looks and feels good and is just the right size to pop in my bag πŸ˜€

Advent Calendars – Day 21

day-21

Top left is another very pretty washi tape from my Mrs Brimbles calendar, I really can’t wait for Sunday to see which of the journals/planners I shortlisted for next year D has bought for me to use all these goodies I have been getting in!

Below that is some shampoo from my L’Occitane calendar. This is another product that I’ve not tried yet but have been looking at. It smells a little citrussy and a little herbal so it’s another thing to look forward to trying πŸ™‚

In the middle is one of the main reasons I wanted the Sanctuary calendar. I find micellar water works really well with my skin and this is a foaming version. I know I could have just purchased a bottle to try but then I wouldn’t have got some of the other goodies that I have from this calendar πŸ™‚

Top right is D’s lindor of the day and today’s is the Strawberry and Cream one again

Bottom left is a small tube of PUR correcting primer from my M&S calendar.
