What I've Won - August 2017

We are now well into September so I am back with a new What I Won installment - this time for August 2017. This month has been pretty decent, I've put a bit more effort into Instagram giveaways and it seems to be paying off.

1) Marshmallow bars (RRP £8.10) from Mallow and Marsh
Mallow and Marsh run giveaways on Twitter every Monday and it was one of the comps that I was desperate to win. After years of trying, I finally won! They are delicious too - especially the raspberry.

2) Bottle of white Rioja (RRP £10.99) from Rioja Wines
Who doesn't love an alcohol win?! Rioja Wines run quite a lot of these on Twitter too. I've yet to try it yet - maybe this weekend.

3) Box of Pip Organic juice (RRP £4.49) from Pip Organic
I won a box of Pip Organic juice on Instagram in a like and comment giveaway. After I won, they informed me that they cannot ship to Northern Ireland so I sent them to my friend Jenna for her son to enjoy.
4) Mum and Baby headbands (RRP £16.00) from Lamb and Bear
Alex from Lamb and Bear is actually a blogger who has her own clothing range. She had a new range released last month and a Twitter party to coincide with the launch. I originally was joining in in more of a "support another blogger" type stance but I ended up purchasing the flamingo leggings that E is wearing in the above photograph, then I ended up winning the matching mum and baby headbands!

5) Caudalie Beauty Elixir (RRP £32.00) from Bath and Unwind
I won this in a simple like and comment giveaway on Instagram. I've heard such amazing things about it.

6) Summer Vibes t-shirt (RRP £15.00) from Awesome Merch
This was a really low entry Twitter win with maybe about 20 entries? It's definitely worth taking the time to search for your own comps.

7) Book (RRP £11.60) from Quercus Books
This was yet another like and comment giveaway on Instagram. I used to read a lot before I had the children and I'm trying to get back into it. This sounds great!

8) Kids t-shirt (RRP £30.00) from Vida Kids PR
I absolutely love this tee but I wasn't sure of the size as it wasn't stated in the competition post. It arrived and it's age 8 so I'll have to squirrel it away for three years!

9) Bath bomb (RRP £4.25) from Amazebomb
This was a win courtesy of my friend Jenna. She won the comp but she tagged me and another friend so we all won! I haven't used it yet but it smells amazing.
10) Ragdoll (RRP £5.00) from Little Lucy Willow
Yep - another Instagram like and comment win. It's super cute and E loves her!

11) Moana costume (RRP £10.99) from Rubies UK
My kids both absolutely adore dressing up so I always enter Rubies comps when I see them on social media. E has loved Moana since we got it on DVD so she'll be thrilled when this arrives.
12) Bamboo muslin squares (RRP £22.69) from Abosca Ireland
I was so chuffed with this Instagram like and comment win as I'm going to gift it. The muslins are super soft!

13) Jelly Belly goodies and £20 Wilko gift card from Jelly Belly
Jelly Belly is another regular competition that I enter weekly and finally managed to win on Twitter! I'm pretty sure it is the Jelly Belly air fresheners that I've won which will be great for Chris's car.
14) £150 People Tree voucher from We Shop Social
I couldn't believe it when I won this on Instagram. I never buy myself new clothes since I had kids so it's lovely to treat myself with wins like this. They have a beautiful range.
15) Box of frozen cocktails (RRP £7.49) from Ice and Easy
I won these in an Instagram giveaway too! Surprisingly, they are still in my freezer and haven't been tasted yet. They look great!

16) Jake and the Never Land Pirates plush and inflatable sword (RRP £13.00) from Disney Junior
Almost every Tuesday, I take part in the Disney Junior Tea Party on Facebook. I was lucky enough to win this little Jake prize. The kids love the show!
17) Soul Food Collective snacks (RRP £6.87) from Soul Food Collective
I won a few bags of snacks in this Twitter giveaway. I love a food win!
18) Smurfs Blu-ray and book (RRP £41.99) from Sony Pictures
Both children love the Smurfs and I am so impressed with the book - it's amazing!
19) Town and Country book (RRP £8.99) from Book Bairn
C and E are massive bookworms so any book win - I'm happy with. This a little turnaround search and find book. I'm sure they'll love it!
20) Tutu dress (RRP £19.00) from houseapop
I won this gorgeous tutu dress in an Instagram like and comment giveaway. Apologies for the rubbish photograph - it's much more beautiful in real life.

21) Taste Inc voucher (RRP £2.99) from Taste Inc
Phew - another Instagram like and comment win. This is just a little voucher for a free pack of their chilled chicken snacks.

22) Hamper of selfie goodies (RRP £314.52) from Hot UK Deals
Holy. Crap. This was an Instagram like and comment win too and I wouldn't let myself believe it until it arrived. How bloody amazing!

23) Bundle of goodies (RRP £15.50) from Jackson Reece
Jackson Reece are another company running regular giveaways (every Friday). With two little ones, these will be so handy.
24) Ben 10 action figure (RRP £9.99) from UK Mums TV
C is a big fan of Ben 10 and has quite a few of their toys from older ranges. He will absolutely adore this!

In August 2017, I won 24 prizes worth a total of £781.45!

I always do a comparison so for the same month in previous years:
August 2016 - 32 prizes worth £554.19
August 2015 - 24 prizes worth £229.29
August 2014 - 5 prizes worth £119.82

Did you win anything nice last month?
