February Wins and Freebies :D - updated as items come in :)

Here's my wins and freebies from Feb - to make it easier I have started writing this at the beginning of the month and added items as they arrive (some may have been won in January but only arrive in Feb) as it's easier to keep track of everything that way :)

First one is a freebie :)

Head & Shoulders Hair Thickener from Savvy Circle  this is such a fab wesbite for coupons, freebies and trials and I highly recommend them :) I have taken part in numerous product trials from them and you get a lot of cool stuff up (in the past I have had Lenor unstoppables, shampoos, car air freshners, tooth brushes etc) They ask in return you review the product - if your doing a trial then they have surveys and conversation reports and discussions to do which doesn't take that much time. If its just a trial or sample product then you just need to take 1-5 mins and give them a bit of feedback - as some of these products are quite expensive (this one costs £9.99) they aren't really asking for much in return and to be honest I think the more you review and feedback the more likely it is you will be invited to take part in future trials :)

This finally arrived (took about 6 weeks) a little sample pouch of Soap & Glory body butter cream direct from the S&G webbie. Can't wait to try it out I am sure it will smell amazing

I am so happy with these dresses which I won from Lindy Bop on facebook - they do regular give-aways over on their FB page and if you aren't luck enough to win one they are incredible reasonably priced too at around £30 a dress with some amazing sales too and the dresses came super fast like within 2/3 days - deffo worth a look :)

I won this signed by the cast poster and DVD from HeyUGuys - great entertainment site with lots of cool competitions running as well and they have some pretty awesome merchandise in their shop including an amazing goonies hoody which when I have some spare cash I am totally buying for myself! They are on youtube, facebook and twitter :)

This is the signed poster and dvd for We still Kill the Old Way

Also my football from Capital One arrived - I donated it to work :) I won this in a comp on their Facebook - they often have comps running to win sports equipment for kids teams and stuff

From the Jack Daniels Christmas Traditions competition - a JD Hip Flask - because it's alcohol related (although sadly they didnt send a bottle of JD to fill it) I had to send my ID in order to receive this prize. I'm please my aunty's hub loves JD so that's his xmas pressie for next year sorted! They often do giveaways and comps throughout the year but it's over 18's only

Jac's Super new coat arrived too :) This is from Pet Shop Bowl but we won on a giveaway on AnnaInWonderland's blog from a rafflecoptor give away - I've always been a bit dubious about these thinking it's impossible to win but I was wrong. This arrived super fast too. I had the email on Friday - I replied and she forwarded my details to PSB who then set me up with an account, They e-mailed to say it was on it's way on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday so super fast. They also sent a free bag of kibble too and a coupon for a discount on a future order. Jac was very impressed although he wouldnt keep still for pics. Really nice thing about this coat is the way it fastens - it goes over the head and then has wrap around velcro straps to hold it in place and elasticated straps which go around the back legs - once on this bad boy isn't coming off any time soon and Jac still has the freedom to move, cock his leg and do what comes naturally without getting anything on the coat and it's waterproof too. Jac also loves the kibble so much so I am going to have to order him some more

From the Original Source FB Page a free full sized bottle of their new lemon and coriander :) Again they often run competitions and giveaways on their FB page so it's worth liking their page and following them. I love OS products and think they generally smell amazing without being overly girly so this is definitely a page I am going to be keeping an eye on for future give aways!

From Jenning's Brewery Daily win game - runner's up prize of a compass keyring, luggage lock and some post-its:) Again this is over 18's only. You can enter every single day and you have 3 chances to win and the prizes change weekly/monthly.

From Global Cool website - Black Carbon by Declan Milling - I am currently reading this - it's a bit heavy going but good so far :) They do lots of giveaways on their sites of books etc they have reviewed so its worth checking back to find something new and cool to read.

From @Match_UK  on twitter - signed copy of AgeSexLocation by Melissa Pomentel - haven't started this one yet as still reading the one above. If you follow Match UK on twitter they often have comps and giveaways and they have some cool bits up for grabs.

From ADDIS Home on FB - they sell home wares and I won this cute little city cup in their giveaway. They have some lovely brightly coloured kitchen items and some innovative little gadgets for sale too.

A freebie :) Sample of Shampoo & Conditioner from Bumble & Bumble - these are fab for overnight stays at a hotel :)

From Holiday Hypermarket on Twitter in their Friday Freebie comp :) this is pretty awesome - a huge towel, a canvas baggy, a pen, some playing cards, a drinks mug and the best part of it all a really cool set of travel adapters which come in their own case - awesome and they do a freebie friday every friday :) My niece has decided she wants mine :( so I will be entering again who knows might get 2 times lucky right?

I Won this equalizer DVD from FlicksandtheCity - it was a rafflecopter entry so not sure if it was via social media or just from their blog - but they are on twitter, FaceBook & have their own webbie and they do lots of giveaways and review the latest films and stuff so worth following :)

I won this book directly from @StripesBooks  on Twitter - The Legend of the Frog - it will make a great gift for my great nephew or niece:) Stripes Publishing do kids books from 4 up to teen and they often do giveaways of their latest books on twitter so give them a follow they will also give you ideas of new books for your kids to read

I won this book about living with dry skin conditions for kids from thebabywebsite - I am going to donate it to work as it has some lovely pictures in it and is written almost like a sensory/social story :) It also came with a free calendar. The baby website has tonnes of articles, advice, free comps and other goodies for mums to be, mums, carers and those working with kids.

I won this heart shaped had warmer from Nature's Finest FB page back in their December giveaway but its taken a long time to come :) They were giving out literally hundreds of items daily so it probably took a while to sort :) They also run regular give aways on their FB page so again it's worth following them and they also sell yummy fruit so its win win

I love LOVE this - Diana F+ Deluxe Lomography Kit which I won in the Carnaby London Reasons to be cheerful January comp. I had pretty much convinced myself it wasn't going to come as originally they e-mailed and asked me if they could pass my details onto the company providing the prize Lomography - I didn't hear anything for about 4 weeks so I contacted them to check they had received my first e-mail and they told me the prize had been dropped in to their office and did I want to collect it or get it delivered. I asked for it to be delivered as had no plans on going to London til Easter time. It then took another 2 weeks to get here and I am so glad they sent it - it weighs a tonne I dont think I would have been able to carry it around London all day. Anyways this has to be the most expensive and best prize I have won since starting comping at the end of November - it costs like £200 to buy and they even sent 3 sets of film with it to use too :). The Carnaby street page is pretty cool as it lists the shops and events taking place and it hosts plenty of competitions with high end retailers and restaurants in the area :)

I won this free packet of Toffee & milk chocolate popcorn from the Thornton's Twitter page - it arrived in the post in a jiffy bag and was surprisingly not all broken by royal mail and quite delicious - we finished it off in about 10 minutes (so much for my diet lol)

Won 2 tickets to go to the Country Living Spring Fair in March in London from the World of Cross Stitching FB page. They hold regular Friday Freebies as well as showcasing cool cross stitch charts and free designs etc.

 Me and mam are going down for the Saturday - got reasonably cheap tickets on the Megabus (£26.50 for both of us return) and on the way back we have MegaBus Gold tickets never actually tried the Gold service apparently you get free drinks and snacks on it. Whilst we are living it up in London my dad has to come down to Cardiff to kitty and puppy sit. I love my dad for doing this especially as the poor guy is allergic to cats and I have 4 hehe.

Nice little Freebie - Heinz did this last year as well - they were giving away 20,000 of these seeds on their Heinz FB page so plenty of people were able to grab some - going to grow them in a pot in the garden.

Another little freebie here - a small sample of Lacoste L!VE for men - I like this freebie because rather than just being a bit of card to scratch and sniff it's an actual little bottle like the Avon reps used to bring when I was a kid :) This one is going to go with my nephew's polo shirt (that I won in a different comp) for his birthday or maybe Easter I haven't decided yet. I haven't tagged the page because I genuinely can't remember where I got this from - I'm assuming the lacoste home page for the UK

Vidal Sassoon Salonist kit - from supersavvycircle - they were giving out like 1000 or so of these kits for people to try - you get 1 dye for yourself and then 3 different ones to hand out to family and friends. It all comes packaged in a shiny VS carrier bag and you also get a cute black VS towel too. You obviously have to give feedback and complete surveys and testimonials etc as a circle member but you also get to try some pretty awesome stuff too. Cant wait to dye my hair and there will be pics to follow :D

We went to the free holiday fair at Cardiff Airport on Sunday 22/2/15 - as well as free entry they also give free parking (you have to get your 'passport' stamped by a minimum of 5 of the visiting companies for the free parking) It was really good we spent about an hour wandering amongst the booths and picking up brochures to help us plan next year's hols. Lots of the companies were giving away little freebies :D although we ate a lot of them (welsh cakes, sweets, choccies, biscuits hehe) and here was also a face painter and kids entertainer there and a free photo booth by KLM. We brought home some free pens (about 10 in total!) some sweets, some flip flops, a stress ball, a coaster and the photos of me and my niece (who also got her face painted lol)  in the KLM booth where they had hats and props to use. They also had comps to win things like flights which we entered into :D It was a fun way to kill an hour and hopefully if they run it again we will go again as it seems to be a yearly thing :)

Whoot a £100 One4All Gift Card from KeepMoat's new years thrifyfifty comp

A book all about earth :) I won this on Twitter from All About Space and I can't wait to read it - being a book worm I love new and interesting books

I won these from MadHouseFamilyReviews giveaway on their blog. The people providing the prize took a while to send it through due to issues with couriers so they included an extra pack of the bed mats to say sorry. I originally entered this for my sis as she was talking about looking at potty training with my niece but due to Harmony's skills being a bit delayed and also she is only 18 months when I won I decided to give them to a friend of mine who has a little boy who's just under 3 who is currently potty training. She's a fab lady and I am sure they will save her some cash and help with the training :)

I won this fab little safe from a facebook comp run by eSafes - it's super cool apart from being bright pink and matching my bedroom (ooh coordinating goods), it got a guarantee that it will keep cash safe up to £1000 and valuables up to £10000 not that I actually have anything that is that valuable to put in it tho :(

From Global Cool website - The Midnight Rose by Lucina Riley - I haven't started this one yet but it sounds cool from the blurb. They do lots of giveaways on their sites of books etc they have reviewed so its worth checking back to find something new and cool to read.

From CapitalOne on Twitter - a Remote Safe :D

I'm super annoyed with myself as I deleted the photos for the following before uploading them and I have used them so can't rephotograph them grrr:

A coupon for a free bottle of Sunny D from their FB page - it was valued up to £1.49 but Morrisons currently doing it for £1 - we got the regular one :) Here's a pic of the half drunk bottle seeing's as I deleted the coupon picture. They do regular giveaways and they also give away a voucher for a free bottle to 10/20 people each friday as part of freebie friday

A sample of Lotus biscoff spread this was advertised as a link to follow on their FB page - enough for 2 pieces of toast and a money off coupon off the full sized product but only a pic of the coupon cos I ate the spread (it was really gross and I wouldn't recommend although their biscuits are delicious). They do regular giveaways and comps on their fb page as well

I also won an awesome hotel night stay over on twitter - obviously no physical prize to post to show you all but I'm well excited - its an over night stay with breakfast plus use of pool and gym for 2 at St Anne's Manor Hilton Hotel & Spa - I am sure photos will follow when I get to visit :D & a £100 Gift Voucher for a local opticians :)
