What I've Won - April 2017

Oh dear, we're almost at the end of May and I'm only publishing what I won in April now! One day, I swear I'll get back up to date and get posting these every first of the month. April was a steady month with some lovely wins. Here's what I won in full:

1) Signed Annabel Karmel recipe book (RRP £14.99) from Annabel Karmel
I do struggle with getting my two children to eat. I feel like they are so fussy so I tend to make them the same dinners - ones I know they'll eat! I entered this because I would love some fun ideas that I'd maybe never think of so it was an added bonus that it was signed, directly to me with my name! 

2) E decoration (RRP £10.00) from Crafty Wee Cat
This store was giving away this specific letter on Instagram so of course I had to enter for E's room. It's so flowery and girly - love it!

3) CSI: Cyber DVD (RRP £19.99) from Real Crime Magazine
I absolutely love TV shows of this genre so this was a nice wee treat for myself!

4) VR Headset (RRP £20.00) from TheSchoolRun
I'd always been intrigued by these but not really enough to go out and buy one. This was a web entry on a kids site and they had five to give away. It's so weird!

5) Swaddles (RRP £24.99) from Summer Infant
How cute are these?! C never liked swaddling but I swore by them with E. These will be gifted to someone I know who is having a baby boy later this year.

6) Diggerland tickets & £100 Little Tikes toys (RRP £180) from Little Tikes

 I could not believe my luck when I won this! I was worried that the Little Tikes toys would be a bit babyish but they are so perfect for C that I've squirrelled them away for his birthday. 

7) Dior luminizer (RRP £39) from Dave Lackie
I've been following Dave Lackie for a number of years now on social media and he is so lovely! I enter quite a few of his giveaways (for those I would actually want/use) so I was thrilled to win this in a Gleam giveaway on his blog. It came all the way from Canada.

8) Smurfs goody bag (RRP £15.00) from Mumsnet
My kids are Smurfs mad so this has gone down a treat! E even wore the hat for around two hours straight as soon as she opened it.

9) £15 Perfume Shop gift card from White Scribbles
One think my dad has always said to me since I started comping was "try and win me some aftershave!" He is obsessed and has quite a selection but it's been one think I've never really been lucky enough to win a lot of. I gifted this to him and he put it towards a bottle.

10) £10 ohbowprettyx spend 
I won this in an Instagram giveaway and as soon as I saw that she made princess bows, I asked for a surprise mix. E absolutely loves them!

11) Family plaque (RRP £35.00) from Make Memento
This is another Instagram win and I love it so much. It's proper sturdy wood and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

12) Kion costume (RRP £22.99) from Lion Guard magazine
C and E both love watching The Lion Guard on Disney Junior so they were chuffed to bits when this arrived from an email entry in Lion Guard magazine. How freaking cute does he look?!

13) Casdon toy washing machine (RRP £20.99) from Casdon
I won this on Casdon's Instagram page in a regram and comment comp. The kids love pretend play so it will go well with their toy kitchen.

14) £10 Maisie's Bowtique spend
More bows, I know! This time E actually sat with me and chose which ones she wanted. The rainbow is defnitely her favourite.

15) Beauty Bunny top from Glossybox
How cute is this jumper?! Glossybox had a few to giveaway over on Twitter recently. I love it!

16) Cuddles magazine (RRP £3.99) from Cuddles magazine
I won this in a simple like and comment giveaway on Cuddles magazine's Facebook page. Of course, I entered the actual competitions in the magazine too when it arrived!

17) £10 spend at Little Soles Love Daisies
I won a voucher spend on Instagram and as soon as I saw these, I knew E would love them! They have only just arrived so she hasn't seen them yet. I'm expecting lots of smiles.

18) Pupa Milano contour kit (RRP £18) from Beauty and Bird
Contouring - something which I've watched numerous tutorials on but never actually tried! I had never used this brand either so I was really excited to win this palette on Twitter.

19) Initial decoration (RRP £10.00) from Be Bright Designs
I think I have a knack for winning decorations and letters! This will be perfect hung on C's wall.

20) Line drawing (RRP £12.50) from Frankie's Doodles
Words cannot describe how much I love this. I won it on Instagram, sent her a photograph of C and E and she captured every bit of it perfectly. I'm in love.

21) Blogger stationery (RRP £16.98) from That Lame Company
I am such a bad blogger when it comes to organisation so I was thrilled to win these during National Stationery Week. Hopefully they'll help!

22) Lindy Bop dress (RRP £34.00) from Lindy Bop
Lindy Bop have been hosting three giveaways per day on their Facebook page for quite a few months now and I've been entering when I see something I like. I didn't think I'd ever win one of their gorgeous dresses so I was so pleased! I haven't taken a photograph of it yet but it's the Carla Swing Dress, if anyone's interested. 

23) £31 from The Selfie Lottery
The Selfie Lottery has actually closed down now but you had to sign up, upload a photo of yourself and wait to be chosen! A different person was chosen to win the "pot" each day and it rolled over if it wasn't claimed. You also got a daily bonus for checking back. 

In April 2017, I won 23 prizes worth a total of £564.42. If you haven't read any of my What I've Won posts before, I always like to do a comparison to previous years:

April 2016 -23 wins worth £359.91
April 2015 - 11 wins worth £296.66
April 2014 - 3 wins worth £42.98

Did you win anything nice last month?
