Wins Of The Week - 9th November 2014

Hello fellow Compers, I have started entering more competitions on the run up to Christmas and it's less than a month away to the advent calendar competitions. For people new to comping this is where the madness starts with 100+ sites offering prizes up daily. There are lots of lists but for the advent competitions, in my opinion, Loquax is the best site. So I will be using them again this year if it's the same as last year where you can track the competitions you have entered each day. 

I have quite a few wins to share with you this week. In fact it's been a couple of weeks since my last update. I am going to try and get back to do doing a weekly post. Here are my wins: 

Competition prize win number 1178: First up I won a Gillette Fusion Proglide razor. Another one for Neil, I don't think he ever needs to buy a razor because there are always lots of competition/freebies about for them. I find the same with mascara for my sister. 

Competition prize win number 1179: The Best of Gershwin CD from Just Competitions - I haven't listened to it yet but I think I might put it on one evening and have a chill out to it. 

Competition prize win number 1180: Yay I won a fish slice -  I know it's a bit pathetic to get excited over this but I have been entering this competition every Tuesday on twitter for months. I won it from Fish Is The Dish on twitter. They give away five fish slices every Tuesday so give it a go. 

Competition prize win number 1181: I won Oculus on blu-ray from This movie looks really scary, even the picture on the front scares me a bit. 

Competition prize win number 1182: 3 x bars of Cadbury Chocolate from the win a banger instant win competition. Each voucher can be used to buy one of the following bars of chocolate: Wispa, Wispa Gold, Boost, Double Decker, Starbar or Twirl. I think I will definitely get a Boost. I love them! 

Competition prize win number 1183: I won a Day Of The Mummy DVD from Junsui Films Limited on  twitter. Another scary looking film for me to watch. 

Competition prize win number 1184: I won a copy of The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson book from Goodreads - First reads. When I first joined Goodreads I won about four books from them and then I didn't seem to win any more so I stopped entering for awhile but still went back and did reviews on the books they sent me. I decided this week to try and enter again and I won. I am so pleased because I love reading and this looks like my type of book. I know some people enter for all books on there but I only enter for the ones I want to read. It's a great site. If you enter make sure you review if you win otherwise chances are you probably won't win again. The whole reason they send out the free books is for people to review. 

Competition prize win number 1185: My dog Shortie won a goodybag from Petface on Facebook. For Halloween they asked pet owners to post pictures of videos of their pets doing tricks. Shortie does this great trick where I go bang and he falls down and plays dead. Here is a link to the video on Facebook that I put into the competition.  His prize was a cow toy, some treats, some lovely smelling doggy conditioner and it all came in a lovely bag. 

Competition prize win number 1186: I won a copy of Saving Grace by Jane Green and a lovely candle that Jane chose the scent for from Book Love Bug blog. The candle smells lush and I have just started reading the book. 

Competition prize win number 1187: I won some awesome Batman Lego goodies from Smyths Toys UK on twitter. Neil and I love Lego so we are excited about this one. The goody bad contained: A Lego Batman 3 t-shirt, two Lego Super Heroes polybags, some stickers, a mask and a Batgirl and Joker Lego key rings. Yay!

Competition prize win number 1188: I won some Halloween goodies from Forza Supplements on Facebook. The prize is a pumpkin bucket. African Mango 2:2:1 capsules, Garcinia Cambogia capsules and a bag of Halloween sweets. 

Competition prize win number 1189: I won a leather multi strand bracelet from Wow Thank You. The bracelet is beautiful. I'm thinking of giving it to my sister as a little present but I might keep it for myself. The bracelet was made my Rosie Hall of Red Dehlia and it's lovely. 

Competition prize win number 1190: And my last win for now is a signed book called Archie Greene and The Magician's Secret by D.D. Everest. I won this book from Faber Children's on twitter.  I think my niece or one of my nephews would really enjoy this book. 

And that is all my wins for now. I also have a competition running on my blog at the moment to win 2 x Cadbury Advent Calendars and 2 x Cadbury Selection boxes (one winner wins them all) which you can enter here if you wish. 

Good Luck to everyone entering competitions in the next week.
