Some days it is very annoying that I can’t share with you some of the items I get sent to evaluate, test or review and today is one as I’ve been sent something I have wanted for a long time but never won so it was a very happy moment to be offered one to test! Anyway, on to deliveries I can share!
On the left, the 4 items are another bargain I found on eBay. I got around to trying the Percy & Reed No Oil Oil and found it makes my hair look really good so I hunted around on eBay to see if I could better the regular price and found this little set. This means I also have 3 more items to try out, the little pot is a dry shampoo paste, there is also a sugar texturizing spray and an instant beach spray too!
On the right is the cuddly captain I won from Birds eye last month, he’s cute and guarding my new shelves currently 🙂
Ohhhhh 2 posts in 1 day 😀 I admit I have had deliveries over the past week to 10 days but I’ve not been able to post them due to them being either gifts for people who might spot the posts or review products which I cant share with you so sorry about that.
The postman was very good to me today as you can see above! On the far left is a recipe booklet I won from Filippo Berio who ran an instant win ‘shake the tree’ game recently. It’s a thin pamphlet but there are some very interesting recipes in it.
Next to that on the top are 2 samples of Britney Spears perfume, I received them via a sample offered from SoPost and the sachet below them came via SoPost as well. This is a sample of John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Deep Conditioner. I normally hate receiving samples in sachets as you never really take scissors into the shower now do you?lol They never seem to tear right for me without scissors but this is a rather large sample within the sachet so hopefully it will tear right, it’s normally the ones with very little in that go really wrong for me!
Finally over on the right is a lovely gift from Sainsbury’s. This came as a brilliant surprise to me this morning, the items they sent are 4 gold chocolate coins, a small packet of gold pearls and a sample tube of Dirty Works creamy body wash. All very nice and appreciated, Thanks Sainsbury’s 😀
A bit of a mix of items here today, starting on the left is my L’Occitane Advent Calendar. I know I said I was going to get this one in my post about this years calendars but I decided I wanted another one more, when things went wrong with other orders with that company I simply decided to get this one instead and even managed to find it with a 15% discount (Thanks Debenhams!) That meant that the price of this went a little under the value for free delivery so I had a look around the site and found the cute magnetic ‘Things to do’ notepad next to it. I love having one of these pads on the fridge to keep my shopping list on and it’s always handy to have a replacement waiting to go when my current one runs out!
Back right is a fun cookbook that I won from Hey U Guys last month. I was really happy to win this as I really wanted to have a rummage through it as soon as I saw it on their site as it looks so much fun. I guess now I just have to hope that the recipe’s are as good as the puns!
Finally front right is a tube of toothpaste that I’ve been sent to try by the Home Tester Club. It’ll be interesting to see if it lives up to it’s claims!
The toothpaste has come from a sample offer that Arm & Hammer ran last week I think. It’ll be good to see if it makes any difference.
The Marco Polo guides came as a surprise this morning. I won them from a competition that ran with Yours Magazine and they will come in very handy as this is one of my top places on my visit wish list!
Only 1 more month until I can finally start opening my Advent Calendars! I will not be complaining if this next month passes by as quickly as the last 10 have done 😀
While on the subject of calendars, look what arrived today! I won these from Danilo Calendars over on Instagram last week, D was very happy to hear as he is a Beatles fan, he’s also told me some of my favourite songs will be on the DVD so that will be getting a watch soon 😀
Some really lovely deliveries have come today!
On the left is a lovely large bottle of Garnier’s Micellar cleansing water. I received this via SoPost from an offering on Garnier’s Instagram. There was originally a choice of 4 but 2 had run out by the time I saw it. I’m really happy with the one I received however as I love this product so probably would have selected it anyway!
The Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner have come from a competition on SuperSavvyMe. I didn’t know which version they were going to send and I was kind of hoping for the coconut one as I love the scent especially in hair care. I’m not disappointed with the ones that have come though as they smell amazing and I cant wait to see how they affect my hair.
Today is a day of all sorts of deliveries, the good, the very good and the really horrible too!
Firstly the good which is the calendar, soap dishes (in the clear packaging) and batteries are an order we placed with Amazon. 2 were very needed and the calendar was to make it up to free delivery but these Busy B calendars are amazing. Each month has a pocket that you can store bit’s in and it has come in so handy this year with all my hospital appointments that we decided to get another for next year too.
Now for the very good, that is hiding away in the top envelope, it’s a cheque for £750 from a puzzle magazine and this is why I’m having another extra advent calendar this year 😀
Finally the horrible! Remember 2 weeks ago those gorgeous bags arrived well today the VAT & fees demand arrived from DHL 😦 I’ve been in contact with the company that ran the giveaway and I’m waiting to hear back from them now and hopefully they will sort this out for me.
