What I've Won: January 2016

Oops! We're almost finished February and I realised that I hadn't published my What I Won in January post! Better late than never, eh? January was a pretty good month for me, I can't complain too much.

Here's what I won:

1) Webbox dog treats (RRP £1.00) from Webbox
I won these directly from Webbox on Twitter. I don't have pets myself but Chris's mum and brother both have two dogs so I like to enter for them. A nice little treat!
2 & 3) Snoopy instant wins
I never do well with instant wins but I was pleased with these. C has recently discovered Snoopy and he loves having keyrings because he feels like a big boy with his own keys. I entered both times in the wee hours of the morning - it seems to have helped!
4) Wychwood t-shirt
I won this on the first day it opened. I was pretty excited as I knew Chris would love it, until I discovered that there was a glitch and everyone was getting winning notifications. Luckily Wychwood were lovely and honoured it anyway.
5) Easy Laces (RRP £4.99) from Easy Laces
This was a low entry competition on Twitter. I was really pleased because I knew my sister would love them for her Converse.
6) Clover the Lamb (RRP £10.99) from Lissi Lou
 I spotted this on Twitter and just had to enter. E loves her stuffed animals is constantly kissing and cuddling them. As soon as he arrived she fell in love with him.
7) 2 tickets to Soulfly (RRP £32.00) from Limelight
The Limelight do a competition every week to win yourself plus a guest to one of their gigs, you just have to let them know who you'd like to see. I chose Soulfly as Chris loves them and hasn't seen them in years just after I first spotted the comp and won!
8) Animal crayons (RRP £2.50) from Colourful Crayons by Jess
I've been a fan of this page and the gorgeous shaped crayons for a while so I was so chuffed to win one of their Freebie Friday competitions. I didn't know which animals we would receive but I knew the kids would love them. They are so easy for E to hold and they've lasted ages!
9) Fire Station Activity Kit (RRP £8.00) from Parragon Books

This prize was just perfect for C. He is obsessed with fire engines and he's at that age now where he likes to build things. He got really excited when I told him he could open the parcel and was even more excited when he saw what was inside.
10) Beauty goodies (RRP £125.14) from Life of a Glasgow Girl
My first blog competition win of the year. It's such an amazing bundle and the first thing that I had to try was the Lush teddy!
11) Hamster bags (RRP £24.99) from Noah & the Girls
I was over the moon with this win! Chris and I don't drive so when we go shopping we have to make do with the basket under E's pram and carry the rest. These are such a great invention!
12) Scrabble frame (RRP £6.00) from Little Treasures
I entered this with the intention of gifting to a friend if I won. I haven't yet given it to her and I know she reads my blog so sorry - no pics for now! I will update when I've given it to her.
13) My Little Pony dvd (RRP £10.99) from Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy
The kids have recently discovered Tiny Pop after months of CBeebies. My Little Pony is one of their favourite shows so when I saw lots of blogs hosting this competition, I really wanted to win one for them. 
14) £50 rimmel goody bag from Elle
I was so shocked to see a WEM in my emails. Usually I'm not so lucky with web competitions, most of my wins come from blogs or social media. My sister has claimed all of it!
15) £50 Iceland voucher from Iceland
Iceland teamed up with Birds Eye recently and hosted daily competitions on Facebook where you had to take a #Freezie (freezer selfie) following the instructions on the post. I didn't see the competition until the penultimate day where the theme was something that the children love to eat. It was 3am and the competition ended at 9am. I knew I had some Potato Smiles in the freezer - C's favourite food at that time - and took a selfie with it. I didn't actually think I'd win!
16) Lego Minifigures (RRP £20.00) from Dennis & Gnasher Epic Magazine
This was a little surprise win that arrived in C's name. He was so excited - his first Lego! He's obsessed with all things spooky and Halloween so he was delighted.
17) Spider-Man talking figure (RRP £22.95) from Marvel Play Time magazine
I love entering the children's magazine competitions for C. He's quickly becoming a little mini comper. He loves Spider-Man and couldn't wait to get it open.
18) Crosse & Blackwell soup & microwavable cup
This was from the current competition that is being run by Tesco and Asda. I won in the Tesco one, again in the early hours of the morning.
19) Goodfellas gluten free pizza voucher (RRP £3.00) from Goodfellas
I won this thinking I could gift it to my friend as she has coeliac disease. When it arrived it said it is only redeemable in mainland UK, boo!
20) Go With Your Gut cookbook (RRP £11.99) from Kyle Books

I'm such a cookbook hoarder and when I saw this one I knew I had to win it. I need to start eating better and apparently the recipes in this are great to aid digestion.

January's prize total is 20 prizes worth £384.54!

Did you win anything nice in January?
