Back in May I was super-duper lucky enough to win an amazing competition on Facebook! It was a £1,000 beauty bag to celebrate 1 million Marie Claire Facebook fans. To win you just had to leave a comment using the hashtag #OneInAMillion, tagging your one in a million friend in the comment. My buddy Emma tagged me first, and then I tagged her back, and then I won! So obviously I shared the prize with Emma, and luckily there was lots of stuff to divide up! A massive box arrived filled with loads of goodies from various brands including Estee…

I’m pretty exhausted after an epic super busy weekend, so I’m sorry for the lack of posting! This weekend I stuffed my face at the Chinese buffet, spent the day in London, had a massive lunch, went to the cinema, saw Eminem at Wembley, went to Go Ape, and then the safari park. That’s quite a hectic weekend for me! So a short, easy to digest post here (and easy for me to write because my brain is so sleepy) on my latest blog wins! I say latest, most of these I won about 8 weeks ago but I’m very…

In case you’re a new blog reader and you’re not really sure what these ‘comp win’ posts are on about, basically I enter competitions online as a little hobby. I’ve been going for exactly 4 years now and I’ve kept a log of everything I’ve ever won in the form of a very detailed spreadsheet! This spreadsheet shows that I’ve won over £15,000 worth of goodies over the years, so it’s a hobby I plan on keeping up for years to come!  It started off when I was a student and was bored during one of the many days off…

Another little round up of my latest competition wins 🙂  VODKA! But not just any vodka.. this Black Moth truffle vodka is amazing. I won a bottle of year a year or two ago and Terri, Tereza and I (especially Tereza….) drank it and actually really liked it. It doesn’t have a gross chemically taste like normal vodkas.. it’s kind of smooth and tasty. Anyway I won this (£34) from their Twitter page so am looking forward to another evening drinking this soon, but hopefully with less crying this time.  I won this little eco-kettle from Twitter also, which made…
