Wins of The Week - 18th May 2014

This week has gone really fast but I have had some fab prizes arrive. Here they are:

On Monday I received a Fuleco World Cup mascot signed by Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Mabbutt which I won from Continental Tyres on twitter. He is fab and this is a great addition to my autograph collection. I have over 500 autographs in my collection so always happy to add to it. 

I also received a lovely bottle of Prada Candy Florale Perfume on Monday. I won this prize from Fragrance Direct on twitter. The bottle is 50ml and worth £46.50 to buy. According to the website the fragrance is all about Peony with top notes of joyful sorbet Limoncello, sparking fresh. At the heart of the fragrance is a majestic bouquet of peonies, with the base of musk, benzoin and caramel. Whilst I am sure this perfume smells delightful I am saving this to give to someone in my family as a present. Being unemployed at the moment winning competitions really helps out with presents for the family. So I haven't tried this one out myself. 

On Wednesday I received a Tabasco Sauce Hamper from Staffordshire Living. My fiancĂ© Neil loves Tabasco sauce so he is very happy with this prize. It includes a range of different Tabasco sauces, some poachies bags which help to make great poached eggs, a little tray, a bottle holder, a tea towel and a candle in the shape of a bottle of Tabasco sauce. A lovely prize. 

I also received a book called The Hive by Gill Hornby. I won this from Waterstones who want me to review it for their website which I will do. I have just started reading it and it's definitely my type of book so far. The story is based around a group of mum's who meet up in the school playground when dropping their children off. Looks like it's going to be a good read. I am quite a slow reader but I should finish it in the time that Waterstones want me to read it and review it. I love reading, it's one of  my favourite ways to relax. 

My favourite win of the week is £100 B&M Stores vouchers which I won on their Facebook page. For anyone who enters their competitions regularly they will know that they get around 20,000 or so entries per competition so I was very lucky to win these. I love B&M Stores and we often shop in our local store. We will probably spend most of it on food goodies and maybe get something nice for the house or garden. They usually have a competition each week so keep an eye on their facebook page and enter as even though lots of people enter you never know when it will be your turn to win! 

On Thursday I received part of the huge prize I won at Easter, some activity/sticker books from Puffin Books. The books I received are Peppa Pig, Peter Rabbit, Moshi Monsters Poppet, Skylanders Giants and Plants vs Zombies. My nieces and nephews will love these especially as most of them have stickers in. I also received some really cool Charlie and The Chocolate Factory stickers and a The Secret Garden postcard. This is a prize I will definitely take back to Bath with me when I go to see the family. 

I also won 1000 Tesco Clubcard Points from Tesco Clubcard on twitter. I think that 1000 points equals £10. Every little helps so I will probably spend it on the food shopping. 

And we went to another dog show in another local park. It was a lot busier than the other dog show we went to but I am really proud to say that Shortie came 2nd in the scruffiest dog category. It may sound weird that I am celebrating the fact that Shortie is a scuffy dog but it's part of his character and to me he is the best  most handsome dog in the world. It was a lovely day. He received a rosette, certificate and a goody bag with lots of smelly fish treats in and a toy. 

I wish everyone the best of luck in any competitions you may enter this week and remember you have got to be in it to win it.

Prizes waiting to arrive: 
Captain America goody bag from Hollywood News 
2 x Fanimals from Fanimal 
2 x Model Own sets from Echo Falls
£60 Frankie and Bennys voucher from Munch Bunch
Budweiser Coolie from Budweiser
