What I Won - June 2017

I'll start this post by saying that June wasn't the best month for me if we are going by the number of wins, but I did have a big win that was on our 'to buy' list so I can't complain too much. 

If you're new to my posts/blog, I am an avid comper and spending quite a lot of my free time entering online competitions. I love to look back on what I've won, do comparisons and share with others that real people do win these giveaways and hopefully try and encourage others to start entering because it really is the best hobby ever. I tend to use Competition Database and also just search for my own competitions on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Without further ado, here's what I won last month!

1) Kids watch (RRP £9.99) from Aniworld
C is almost five now and has recently been asking a lot of questions such as "What does it mean when the big hand points to 6?" so this Tyrannosaurus Rex watch was the perfect prize for him right now. It's a snap watch so it has some added fun and he loves that he can put it on and take it off himself.

2) Organyc bundle (RRP £14.27) from Natural Health Mag

I am very familar with the Organyc range as I used their baby wipes, maternity pads and breast pads just after I gave birth to E. They are so kind to skin so I was pleased with this handy wee win.

3) Box of toys (RRP £14.00) from Pocket Money Toys

I won this one specifically to donate to a preschool or nursery. C's preschool have been amazing this year so I was really excited to bring it to them. The leader was so thrilled and I hope the kids have lots of fun with it. It even included a Melissa and Doug puzzle - one of my favourite brands!

4) A year's soft play membership (RRP £168) from Funky Monkeys

I was so happy to win this on my local soft play centre's Facebook page. With C being at school, I opted to get it for E as she'd get more use out of it. She has a great time and soft play and it has lots of great benefits.

5) UberSoothers (RRP £3.49) from Nuby

I won this in a simple like and comment giveaway on the Nuby Instagram page. My sister in law is currently expecting her second little one so I will be popping it in the little hamper that I'll be making up for her.

6) George Best book (RRP £6.99) from The History Press
This was another Instagram win and it was really low entry. I didn't get a chance to get a photograph as I gifted it to my dad as part of his Father's Day present but he said it's a great read and he can't put it down.

7) £100 One4All voucher from Electric Ireland NI

This was a Father's Day giveaway on the Electric Ireland Facebook page where you had to tag and nominate a great dad. I tagged my partner Chris, wrote about how he was a brilliant dad to our two little ones and won it! It was originally supposed to be a £100 B&Q voucher but they sent this instead (which is actually much better!) As Chris has just passed his driving test and got his first car, he got himself a sat nav!

8) Cara Delevigne Rimmel collection (RRP £39.99) from Superdrug

I very rarely buy myself make up so when I win it, it's a special treat. This is everything from the Cara Camo range and I am so excited to use it!

9) Pointless board game (RRP £19.99) from University Games
Pointless is my favourite TV game show so I am so excited to receive this and see how it goes!

10) Dr Beckmann Glowhite (RRP £1.85) from Dr Beckmann

I won this on the Dr Beckmann Twitter page and they even sent one of their cute little owls too! This will be great for C's school polo shirts.

11) Batch of s'mores brownies (RRP £18.00) from Life Is Sweet NI

All I have to say is, oh my goodness. If you are based in Northern Ireland, you need to place an order with this lady! I have never tasted anything like it and I will definitely be ordering from her in the future.

12) A sofa and rug (RRP £498) from Harveys Furniture
I could not believe my luck when Harveys sent me a message to say I'd won. Just the evening before, my partner Chris and I had discussed how we really needed to buy a new sofa. I cannot wait to have it and our new rug delivered! 

In June 2017, I won 12 prizes worth a total of £894! As I love a comparison, I'll list my wins from June in previous years with the totals below. You can also click through to have a nosey at what items I won too.

June 2016 - 31 prizes worth £588.64
June 2015 - 10 prizes worth £455.24
June 2014 - 16 prizes worth £381.94
