What I Won - July 2017

Hello! I'm back with another What I Won post, this time for July 2017. If you haven't read any of my What I Won posts before, one of my main hobbies is entering competitions. I love to keep a record of anything that I win here on the blog so I can both look back on them and encourage others to get entering too. It really is a fantastic hobby. 

Without further ado, here's what I won in July!

1) Family pass to an early screening of Cars 3 (RRP £20.00) from Movie House Cinemas

I was really excited for this and both kids absolutely loved it! I won this from Movie House Cinemas on Facebook in a simple 'like and comment' competition. I did add a photograph of C with a Lightning McQueen puzzle which I think may have helped.
2) Treat Yourself box (RRP £5.00) from BoxeyBoxey

I love getting the time to give myself a pamper - not that it happens a lot! I love this little box and it has everything for a little pamper night in. I won this in a Twitter 'RT and follow' giveaway.
3) Marshmallows (RRP £4.25) from Naked Marshmallow Co

Naked Marshmallow Co had a Facebook live video where you had to answer questions and a random winner was chosen. I think there were 20 questions and winners, each winner receiving a random pack of their marshmallows.
4) Boatyard Double Gin (RRP £40.00) from Vineyard Belfast

This was won from a local Facebook giveaway and it had to be collected. It's always worth searching for competitions in your area. Who doesn't love an alcohol win?

5) Spider-Man Homecoming merch (RRP £30.00)

I was delighted to win this on Twitter because C is absolutely obsessed with Spider-Man. The drawstring bag will be perfect for his PE kit when he goes into P1.
6) 7" chocolate cake (RRP £12.99) from Sponge Cakes Ltd

Sponge Cakes run giveaways every week on Facebook and Twitter with over 1000 entries on each channel. I never thought I'd win one of their giveaways but finally managed to on Twitter - hooray! It was absolutely delicious FYI.
7) Tan (RRP £26.00) from That's So
I'm not a big tan wearer myself but my 15 year old sister is the complete opposite. I always seek out competitions so she can try new tan brands and managed to win this in a 'like and comment' giveaway on Instagram. 

8) Wussywat book
Again, this was a little Instagram 'like and comment'. It's a really great little read.

9) Mal from Descendants costume (RRP £22.99) from Rubies

This was a Twitter win and E loves dressing up so it's perfect for her. The smallest size was 5-6 years so I'll have to put it away for a little while!
10) Robbie the Rabbit emotions teddy (RRP £30.00)

I won this little soft toy on Instagram and I think it may be aimed at younger children, but with C having issues with emotions I thought it would be great for him.
11) Transformers Rescue Bots goodies
Transformers Rescue Bots is probably one of C's most watched shows on Tiny Pop so I was thrilled to win this from the channel's Facebook page. I've yet to receive it so I'm not sure what will be inside!
12) Ben 10 Rustbucket toy (RRP £69.99) from Smyths Toys

This is awesome! C got into Ben 10 when my dad bought him a massive box of Ben 10 DVDs, figures and cards on eBay so I've put this away for his birthday next month.
13) Emma Bridgewater themed jar (RRP £7.00) from emmacraftylilcrafts
I absolutely love stuff like this for brightening up my kitchen. Chris doesn't share my love but who cares? Ha!
14) Sleepzzz Until bear (RRP £15.99) from Wafflemama
I absolutely love the look of these! There was a Sleepzzz Until Twitter party running with a few bloggers hosting RT and follow competitions to win one. C very much needs a visual countdown for things so this will be perfect for him.
15) Signed Two Cousins of Azov book (RRP £8.99) from Gransnet
One thing that I loved to do before I had children was read. I am really trying to get back into it now that my children are older and are more independent and sleeping through the night etc. This book sounds great and I can't wait to get reading.
16) Spider-Man Homecoming merch (RRP £30.00)
Yes, another set! Luckily I have someone to gift this to so, yay! 

In July 2017 I won 16 prizes worth a total of £323.20. As I love a comparison, here's my stats for July in previous years:

July 2016 - 35 prizes worth £721.08
July 2015 - 24 prizes worth £182.20
July 2014 - 9 prizes worth £242.71
Did you win anything nice last month?
