Here’s my latest installment of competition wins! I say latest, but most of these bits I actually won over summer but have only just got round to doing a post on them. If you’re a new reader and are wondering what I’m on about, I enter competitions to win stuff, mainly entering on Twitter and occasionally Facebook.

You may think this is a little bit odd or ‘sad’ even, but it’s a little hobby I picked up when I was at uni and it was so rewarding I’ve kept it up for 4 years now! I’ve been keeping a little log of my wins in a speadsheet, and in total I have now won over £18,000 in goodies! Ranging from all kinds of things, iPads, mobiles, clothes and vouchers, it’s definitely something I love. I often post about my competition wins on my blog and have posted some tips on what/where to enter too.


I won this bottle of Monopole champagne on Twitter, RRP £34. I’ve been saving it for Liams return home from Kenya to celebrate!
I won a crate of Mangajo natural drinks on Twitter
I won this gorgeous leather clutch bag from Marta Jonsson worth £120
I won a pair of Mel rubber jelly sandals on Twitter, RRP £34
I won this love.skinny detox tea on Twitter but it tastes yucky! RRP £25
A little win, Batiste dry shampoo RRP £1.50

I won an afternoon tea cruise along the Thames in London but I gave the voucher to my Mum and Dad and they went to London for the day. They had such a lovely day out and it was so nice to be able to treat them!
And finally, one of my favourite prizes, I won a £200 voucher to spend with Renshaw Icing from a wedding cake design Pinterest competition! Being a frequent cake decorator this was such an amazing prize! I also x2 return train tickets to London to go to the National Wedding Show.

I’ve not done a competition win blog post since the beginning of summer so I’ve got a few wins from the last few months to show you! I’ve not won anything huge lately, but I’ve still received some lovely things and I always love a win. So here’s a short little blog post for you!


I won an amazing three course meal for two at the lovely Grosvenor Hotel Victoria in London which we used back in July. We had an amazing Camembert starter, steak, and ice cream sundaes! 
I’ve not yet used these vouchers yet for free ice cream and milkshake from Joe Delucci’s which I won on Twitter
Another Twitter win, I won 2 slices of cake from Villandry which I used when I visited London with my Mum a few months back. The carrot cake was delicious!
I was really lucky to have won £200 worth of Thomas Cook holiday vouchers in one of their Twitter giveaways! I’ll be saving these up for a trip away next year.  

I won £160 worth of Go Ape vouchers on Twitter, and I’ve used some already as me and Liam went to the Go Ape in Woburn in July. 
I won afternoon tea for two at the Hilton in Westminster on Facebook, which I will be going to with my friend in November! Excited.

I just wanted to say a big ‘hello’ to all of my new followers and readers! I thought I would introduce myself to those of you that don’t know much about me or my blog. It’s nice to do a personal post once in a while!
So, I am Victoria (or Vikki). I am 22, a university graduate and I live near Milton Keynes, in England. I graduated uni with a 2:1 BA Hons in Tourism Business Management, and I am currently working in a little cake shop. 
I am interested in all things vintage and shabby chic. I love cupcakes, florals, pretty dresses and anything nautical. I am also obsessed with tea cups, baking, and weddings. I’m love Cath Kidston too! So if you like pretty, girly things.. hopefully you will like my blog!
Victoria’s Vintage Blog started small in March 2010, I used it mainly as a place to collect photos that inspired me. As time went on, I started to use it as a little scrapbook of my life, posting more personal posts about myself. After gaining a sudden amount of followers I started posting a greater variety of articles, hoping to interest a wider audience, while still keeping it as my space. In summer 2011 I spent 3 months working in Disney World Florida so some posts about that on here too 🙂
My blog is mainly centred on the following topics: Fashion, Beauty, Nails, Bargains, My Shopping Hauls, DIY, Baking, and my Competition Wins.
I love fashion and beauty, and I often post reviews on my blog about new products that I have tried out, or do Outfit of the Day posts showing what I’ve worn. My style is very feminine and I only ever wear dresses or skirts! I keep my make up minimal and classical too. I have also just grown my nails, which has been a massive achievement for me as I used to chew them to the bottom! So now I do a few nail art posts too which I find lots of fun! 
I’m very thrifty and a bargain hunter when it comes to fashion so all my buys are always purse friendly. I don’t tend to splash out very often, and I like to rummage to find bargains on eBay, at carboot sales, and in charity shops. If you’re looking at finding ways to save your pennies, hopefully my blog will give you plenty of ideas on where to find good deals. 
I’m also really into DIY projects and baking. Cakes are a big passion of mine, and I love to bake and decorate (and eat!) cakes and cupcakes. I also pick up old, second-hand things from boot sales and give them a DIY overhaul to make them look like new again. This usually just means giving them a lick of paint and then sticking girly bits on!
I enter competitions online on a daily basis, and therefore I often have parcels arriving for me with some free goodies! I think that ‘comping’ is a hobbie that more people should definitely partake in. The results of this hobby are easily visible! In less than 3 years I’ve won almost £7000 worth of prizes. Most of the prizes have been fantastic such as designer clothes, a weekend away, and new electrical items. People tell me that my blog posts on my prizes have inspired them to start entering competitions themselves, and they have won things too!
