won a personalised book!

johannes' book I won this gorgeous book the give-away was run by  and was supplied by   http://www.lostmyname

The words are by David Cadji-Newby and pics by Pedro Serapicos.  I won this in a randomly selected draw and have chosen to blog about it because it is just a beautiful, wonderful keepsake! I saved it for Johannes birthday. He loved it! The little boy has lost his name and basically goes on an adventure to find it. This sees him meeting and helping other characters who then give him random letters! Johannes was so surprised when at the end the letters spelt his name! He did say on finding the first letter that his name started with a ‘j’ but he got so involved in the story he lost track the look on his face was priceless and this book is a firm fav. The illustrations are gorgeous and engaging and the story is exciting and funny.

I challenge you to head to the site; you get to choose girl/boy then you put in their name; then you can scroll through the book that would be sent out to your child, then try to resist getting it, they are just too cute for words. Or get one for yourself I am so tempted to get my own!!! I actually thought about getting my mum one for mothers day but I already have her gift so maybe her birthday! Honestly these are so well produced and so beautiful I really would gift them to adults as well! Any who… take a stroll over to the website and take a look you can also find them on facebook.

I haven’t been paid for this it is just an honest and grateful review 😉


I only went and won a pizza!

So big win a pizza! Still waiting for the voucher but excited none the less!

Savings on shopping … I joined Ocado and got £20 off a £60 spend then shopped for half price bargains ended up spending £63 on a shop which should have cost £104! How cool is that!

I complained about a hair in my oat cakes and got a £9 voucher by way of an apology I have also complained to Richmond about their sausage meatballs honestly they are disgusting! We love their sausages and I got two packs at £1 each of these new meatballs, we cant bear to eat the other pack the dog is having them! BLURGH!!! Will let you know the outcome!

So that’s my round up! Cup of tea time me thinks!

My first competition win!

Horray its here! My Wildfox top from  it is lovely and I am wearing it as i type! Ok I won it in a facebook comp and it has arrived package in the usual plastic mail bag but inside it is wrapped in white branded tissue! EEEEEKKKKKK really who doesn’t get excited by tissue paper, not cheap stuff, gorgeous thick lovely tissue which I will reuse gladly!   this is the link to my top as you can see it should have cost £70 I have NEVER spent £70 on a top! But I have to say the fabric is gorgeously soft and drapey and relaxed but not out of shape (unlike me!) It is and oversized top with fabulously long sleeves… I LOVE I have loooong arms and sleeves are always just a shade short not these! yipppeee The print is cute and solid… I have teamed it with a pair of black jeggins and underneath I have layered it with a black silky tunic and I have kept jewellery to my Pandora bracelet and my usual rings, a pair of diamonte studs and a simple chain. It already has the bold print right across the front so didnt need a statement piece! I feel relaxed and comfortable yet stylish 🙂wildfox_nyc_for_lovers_4_new  All contact with the company to organise delivery was polite and efficient so I am sure the experience would be the same if you were to purchase from them. All in all a good experience which will find me browsing their shop again.

Comping update

I have entered hundreds and hundreds of competitions and give-a ways… my Jumper I won hasn’t arrived yet but as soon as it does I will review it and upload a pic 🙂 The postman is probably quite scared by my enthusiasm to see him hoping for a win to arrive! I note on forums people say they dont always know they won it just arrives… I am soooo ready for that! lol

Obviously its not the winning but the taking part … yeah whatever!

Today’s post brought an envelope with a £5 love to shop voucher for signing up to something i think! I really should write down what I have entered for because I have the worst memory but hey its £5 not to be sniffed at!

So been frantically comping and searching for vouchers and free stuff since 2nd week in January  and I have won a jumper and got a skin care set and love to shop voucher and saved us approx £300 on shopping using offers and vouchers ahhhh I LOVE 😉
