When I was pregnant with Tyler Lee I did lots of comping, mainly through blog giveaways and Facebook page giveaways and I was quite lucky. I don't know why, probably lack of time, but I gave up comping shortly after his birth, but recently I've gotten back into it (it must be a pregnancy thing of mine!), mainly entering Twitter RT to enter competitions and I'm delighted to say that I've actually been quite lucky!
After my first weekend of comping, back in January, I actually won two fabulous prizes and I've won a few more since then too. I only enter competitions for things I'd genuinely love to win and that seems to be the key to my luck. Hopefully it'll continue!
I thought I'd share my wins here on the blog just to help me keep track of how lucky I've been and because I genuinely love to read posts like this on other people's blogs too.
My first win was a £50 Amazon gift voucher from We Value Any Home on Twitter, this came in very handy as I bought Tyler Lee's retro trike out of it for his main birthday gift.
My first win in February was for a €100 Brown Thomas voucher from HerFamily on Twitter. I'll be going straight to MAC with this when it arrives and will be picking up some new makeup for myself.
I was both surprised and delighted to win a three month Birchbox subscription from Birchbox UK and Laura Bermingham on Twitter, RRP £30. I can't wait to receive my boxes as I've never tried a beauty box subscription service before.
