Deliveries 13th October 2017


I won these absolutely gorgeous pouches from a competition that ran on InStyle’s competition pages. They are Emm Kuo’s La Dolce Vita and Good Vibes pouches. Sadly the photo doesn’t do them justice, they are beautifully painted and the leather is just so soft, I’m really looking forward to using them 😀

A lot of deliveries have arrived today!

The slippers are another part of my treats from winning that lovely cheque earlier this month. I’ve had both cheap and expensive ones in the past and have found I love these from Shoe Zone the most. They’re lovely and comfy, the bootie slippers are really warm and they all last a good while even with me walking miles in them (indoors) each day!

The socks I purchased via eBay and are to make the slippers last a bit longer than they would otherwise and they look cute too!

The Barny Ranger Discovery Diary I won via an on pack competition for a friend, I’ll be passing this along to her next time we manage to meet up!

The Brockmans Gin D won a few weeks ago via the ‘Press to Win’ app on their Facebook page. He’ll be pleased when he gets home to see this has arrived 🙂

I also have a test product being delivered later but decided to do this post without it as I’m not totally sure I could have shown you all anyway 🙂

This beautiful cross stitching kit came as a lovely surprise in the post today. I’ve won it from The World of Cross Stitching and it looks a great kit to work on and it’s the perfect time of year to win something like this for me so I’m really happy with this.

The sachet of Aloe Water is a sample from L’Oreal, it sounds interesting so I’ll look forward to trying that out!

At the top is my campaign kit from the Savvy Circle for the latest project that I am a part of. I will be testing and sharing Pantene’s new Micellar range of Shampoo, conditioner and foam conditioner. It smells really nice from the bottle, very delicate, slightly sweet and a little of apples so I’m looking forward to trying it out 🙂

Bottom left is my most amazing win ever! The cheque I was told about a couple of weeks ago has arrived so that’s £3,000 to make life a little easier for us. I have treated myself to a couple of Advent calendars that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. This year I was just going to have one beauty one and the stationery one but receiving this let me treat myself so now I have a lovely Advent to look forwards to!

The picture on the bottom middle/right is a freebie D received today of Shawn Mendes Signature. It’s actually a scented tattoo so that will be interesting to see if he uses it!lol

Deliveries 2nd September 2017


I am totally stunned right now! I enter competitions for fun mostly and in the hope of one day maybe winning one of the big prizes while enjoying the smaller ones if they happen too. Well, today has turned out to be my ‘One Day’ as you can see above. This is the biggest win I’ve ever had in the nearly 10 years I’ve been entering competitions.

At first I thought I was seeing things with all those 0’s but D checked and yep, it’s real and yes, I did enter the competition and right now I’m sat here grinning like you wouldn’t believe.

I hope you all have great weekends, I know I’m going to after receiving this news 😀

This is my latest Amazon order using some vouchers I won from a forum comment I made. The Charlaine Harris books have been on my wish-list for a long time and when I checked after receiving the vouchers they had been reduced to £2 each so I just had to get them. I then added in the Claire Douglas as I’ve read one of her others and enjoyed it but this left me 5p short of getting free delivery so after doing a search I found the Sue Fortin one for £2 as well, such a shame Amazon don’t make it easy to search for all books reduced down to that price or a few more might have been added to my basket as well!

Just hiding off to the side are my new bra strap holders, I have terrible trouble keeping straps on my shoulders so normally buy T-Back bras, these will hopefully allow me to buy normal ones again, they had good reviews and look like they should do the job 😀
