Look in my Letterbox #71

I'm baaaack! You may have noticed that I haven't written a Look in my Letterbox post in a while. A month to be exact. I didn't mean to not write one, life just got in the way. C started preschool at the beginning of September and I've found it a little bit difficult to establish a new routine. I used to blog in the evenings when the children had gone to bed but now I've just been far too tired. Throw in the fact that we had both kids birthdays and both of them got tummy bugs in different weeks, I've just had no time at all to do much.

I did keep note of everything that I received this past month so this is going to be a bit photo heavy but if you're a nosey person like me, you'll probably enjoy it! So here's what I received in the post last month!

Hair straighteners
 Excuse my shoddy paint job here! I won these from Platinum Beauty at the beginning of the month. I love leopard print and they are handy to have!
Brief Encounters boxset
 I won this from Noctis mag on Twitter and it was something that I really wanted to win. I watched the series as it aired on ITV and loved it!
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air boxset
I won this on Facebook and was totally delighted! It's one of my favourite shows.
Children's DVD boxset
Lots of DVDs for me! I was thrilled to win these with Halloween coming up. C absolutely loves Halloween and he had me put Paranorman on as soon as it arrived.
Nuby breast pump
 How amazing is this!? It's worth £90 and has recently won some awards! I will be sending this to Jenna at Chic Geek Diary as she is expecting her second baby.
Denman hairbrush
I love these brushes! It smells too - even cooler!
Cake topper 
I won this to go in C's birthday cake. It's so lovely and completely handmade.
 I'm not sure where this came from! I've seen loads of people post about them in competition groups on Facebook though. A nice surprise!
Friyay top
I won this gorgeous top from Lennie & Co on Instagram. C totally rocks it!

 Polka Dot goodies
This was a little win from a local company on Facebook. I am in love with the cloud light.

I actually won a different doll to the one above in a Twitter giveaway months ago. They had stock issues so sent this instead along with some Tinies as an apology. How lovely! I actually think the kids will prefer this doll to the one we were supposed to get.

 Finding Dory Crocs bundle
How amazing is this bundle!? The Crocs light up and the Vue gift cards are worth £50! E never has her Crocs off. She thinks they are the best.

 The Lost Smile book
This was from a blog giveaway where there were ten winners. It's such a lovely little book.
Bow holder
This was a low entry Facebook win. E has so many bows so it will be very useful.

I originally won the Punisher Pop and Wolverine Dorbz in a giveaway run by Retro-Spective Collectables on Facebook. There was a delay in sending it out so they added in the Young Elsa Pop and Batman v Superman bottle opener - how cool! I'm a Pop collector so this is an awesome win.

I won this is a loop giveaway with Dolly and Beau on Instagram. It's a bapron = bib/apron and it's oilcloth so it'll be perfect for when E paints.

Just Us Box
I'd been trying to win a date night subscription box for a while now. Chris and I very rarely have date nights and I finally won this from Just Us Box on Twitter. With the kids being sick and Chris working early shifts, we haven't yet found an evening to do it!

Trunki bundle
Argos do a birthday club competition every month. I received an email with September's giveaway in it. You had to simply say why you wanted to win a Trunki bundle and...I won! C already has a Trunki so I was delighted to finally get my hands on one for E too.

Munchkin Latch 
This was an Instagram regram giveaway with Munchkin. I will be sending this to a friend as no more babies here!
Num Noms
 We received these to coincide with a baking post that will be going up this week so keep an eye out!
Beard oils
 I'm starting my Christmas gift guides soon and I received these to be included. Chris takes care of his beard and uses so much oil so he'll be trying them out!
Milkshake maker
 C's favourite treat on a Friday after school is a chocolate milkshake so when we were offered the chance to review, I had to say yes!
Gordon's Great Escape book
 I can never say no to a book review! We love Supertato so this will go down well I think.
 I've been so intrigued by these so agreed to review one with E when I received an email a few weeks ago. My post will be up this week if you want to read about how we've gotten on.
Popcorn maker
 We always have family movie night so I'm really excited to be reviewing the Savisto popcorn maker.
Molly Maybe book
 We love Molly Maybe books and have actually reviewed one before. My review of this will be up tomorrow.
TMNT Squeeze Em's
I received this so long ago that I've actually already done my review! It is so cool!

Yankee Candles
 These are for inclusion in my Christmas gift guides too. They all smell so good and make me want Christmas now!
Lost My Name book 
 My review of this book went up yesterday so do take a peek. We love it!

 Ted Baker wallet set
This is another Christmas gift guide item.

Zero Gluten Baker
Yep, another Christmas gift guide item! I will be doing a full review too. It's a pretty awesome gadget.

Baby Born Brother doll
 C loves dolls so having his own boy doll is so exciting for him!
Merry Moos
This is another little Christmas gift guide item.
Table & chairs 
Awful photograph but I ditched E's highchair and got the kids a cute little table and chairs! This one is from Mothercare and it's so easy to assemble.

I bought this for Chris as a little surprise. The kids stole the Adventure Time figures and how awesome is the Star Wars tee?!

My best friend got engaged so I also received her engagement party invitation - how exciting!
Did you receive anything nice this past month?
