What I've Won: February 2016

I've been a "comper" for four years now but I've only been writing these 'What I've Won' posts for just over two years now. This month saw me win my biggest prize to date and I still can't quite believe it. In February, I won:

1) YT Club Flexi Tripod (RRP £29.99) from Kelly Pendragon
Just before I won this I actually said to Chris that I really needed to get a tripod for blog photos so it was perfect timing. I'm totally over the moon.

2) Power bar from DPG plc
This hasn't arrived yet but it's a nice handy little win! It was a simple Twitter competition where you had to say what empowers you to succeed. 

3) Face mask from Ooharr UK
They were giving away tons of these on both Twitter and Facebook I think. A nice little treat!

4) Renshaw Icing & Shaun the Sheep book (RRP £5.90) from Renshaw Baking
Renshaw was hosting this competition to celebrate the release of the new Shaun the Sheep DVD. C loves Shaun so I'm really glad I won for him. We're going to make Frozen themed buns with the icing as it's the perfect colour.

5) Rainbow Painter & Buzz Art stencils (RRP £21.00) from Hamleys Toys
Hamleys Toys do a Monday Quiz every week from 5.15pm. I enter when I can remember and I think I only remembered to enter this one close to midnight. You just have to answer a few questions to enter. This prize is perfect for C.

6) Card (£3.50) from Green Rose Prints and Cards
This was a little greetings card and it was an Instagram win - super handy to have.

7) Kiss toilet roll from Ideal Standard UK
This was a bit of an odd win! It was a Valentine's Day retweet to win competition on Twitter. I love a novelty prize.

Chris is a bit of a tie collector so when I saw this competition on Twitter. They were giving away "a dozen ties for a dozen guys". The tie is amazing quality and it looks pretty pricey. I can't find a retail price for it anywhere online though.

9) £15 spend at Mama et Moi
This was a little Facebook win. It was pretty low entry and I'm obsessed with buying kids clothes.

10) Men's razor (RRP £6.00) from Beauty at Tesco
They were giving away 100 of these on Twitter but with 1000+ entries, I didn't expect to win! A nice little win for Chris.

11) £60 spend at Koko Kids from This Enchanted Pixie
I'm so so pleased with this win. I love wall stickers so they'll be perfect for redecorating their bedrooms.

12) Jools drinks (RRP £4.05) from Jools Drinks
This was just a retweet to win competiton on Twitter. I love finding new food and drinks companies!

13) Bow holder (RRP £12.00) from xlilbowpeepx
I am over the moon with this win! I buy so many bows for E and I've already made her a bow holder but it only holds a fraction of her bows. So excited for this to arrive.
14) Keyring (RRP £3.00) from Gibson Creations
This was a Facebook win. They do lots of different keyring designs so it was a tough choice!
15) £1000 shopping spree at Ted Baker
This was my biggie! Ted Baker had a Valentine's competition where you had to hook some ducks and if you got a match, you were entered into the main prize draw. I always enter competitions like this and I couldn't believe my eyes when I read the winning email. I was shaking and when I phoned Chris he said it sounded like I was going to cry! Can't wait to shop!

16) Women's razor (RRP £5.45) from Wilkinsons Sword Women
They had ten of these to give away over on Twitter on #RandomActsOfKindness day. How funny that I win a men's and women's razor in the same month!

17) Robinsons glass from Robinsons
They were giving away tons of these over Facebook and Twitter and I didn't see the competition until ages after it had started. So chuffed to have won - they're so cute. Plus Chris keeps breaking our glasses!

18) Cheerz photo box (RRP £13.00) from Squidgyboo
I take far too many pictures but never get them printed so this is such a brilliant win. Now for the hard task of choosing which pictures to print!

19) Nuby starter set (RRP £14.99) from Nuby UK
I have a friend who is expecting a baby so I've started entering for baby items too. I entered this not long after she told me she was expecting and I'm so pleased to have won it for her. Hoping I can win her some more nice goodies!

20) Glass tokens (RRP £38.97) from Life in a Break Down
I've been entering Sarah's competitions for years and this is the first I've won. I thought I'd only won one so I was surprised when three arrived!

21) Bigjigs train set (RRP £30.99) from Bigjigs Rail
I love Bigjigs toys. I always enter their competitions and this prize is perfect for C. He's obsessed with trains and I can't wait for it to come.

22) Lionheart book (RRP £5.59) from Toppsta
I always forget to enter the Toppsta book giveaways but luckily I managed to do this months one. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll see that I do quite a lot of children's book reviews so this is perfect for the kids.

In February I won 22 prizes worth a total of £1,169.43.

Did you win anything nice last month?
