Wins Of The Week - 25th August 2014

Time to post my wins from last week but before I do I wanted to say that last week I received an email from a blog reader who said it was wrong that I entered the competition to win the Miranda Lambert CD when it could have gone to a real fan. I would like to say that I understand where they are coming from but I tend to enter most CD and DVD competitions I see because I know that if I don't like it someone in my family will. We have a wide range of music tastes and whilst I wouldn't have picked up Miranda's CD (because I hadn't even heard of her), I am now glad that thanks to entering the competition and winning that I have discovered her music. There are people who openly enter competitions to sell things and whilst I have in the past had to sell a few of my wins due to being unemployed and really skint I never enter any competition with the purpose of selling the prize on. For example I never enter for tickets to events that I am not interested in or know I couldn't attend.  I just wanted to clarify where I stood with regards to my comping hobby. 

Now on to my wins from this week:

Competition prize win number 1145: I won a copy of Now That's What I Call Music 88. I don't know where I won it from but it's fab and has a great range of music. I particularly like Rixton's song "Me and My Broken Heart" and of course "Let It Go" by Idina Menzel. I watched Frozen with my niece Lilly and I love it. It's such a good film. 

Competition win prize number 1146: School For Stars - Summer Holiday Mystery book that I won from Holly Willoughby on twitter. My niece is going to love this book which I will give to her as part of her birthday present next month. 

Competition win prize number 1147: I won two books by Sherry Thomas from Headline Eternal on twitter. These books look fab and I have put them on the top of my pile of books to read after the book I have finished. I love reading so much. It's one of my favourite ways to relax. 

Competition win prize number 1148: I won 2 cans of Boost from Boost instant win competition. Neil will have these as I won two bottles before and he liked them. 

Competition win prize number 1149: And finally my Age Defy Shampoo and conditioner arrived from SuperSavvyMe. I was surprised they turned up because when they emailed me they quoted my old address even though on the website it had my address I am at now. So they must have checked the system to send it here. I am looking forward to using them. 

And that's all for this week. Don't forget I have a great competition running to win 10 packs of Loom bands (3000 bands). Join in with the competition here. I also have a new competition coming up this week so look out for that.

Why not leave me a comment with what you have won in the last week.

  1. I must admit I HATE people who enter comps to win things to sell. I have blocked and barred Facebook friends who have won a guitar and then sold it! Because I have been trying to win one for well over 30 years!

    1. Totally understand where you are coming from. I have only sold a few items. I mostly give or sell for cheap to my family. I hope you win that guitar xxx
