Preparing for ADVENTS comper edition!

Hi everyone , as a comper advents is not only one of the most comp filled time of the year , but it can also be really stressful. I like to get organised during november to maximize my efficency and stop anthing slowing me down. Advents Below are some handy tips that should help you prepare making

TIPS

1- Spend a little time each day unfollowing inactive accounts annoying , tedious and my god i wish there wasnt limits. This will stop you hitting the limit if your likeme its weekly but could potentailly stop you from getting a ban for unliking to quickly.

2- Unsubscribe to mailing list. So you dont have too many emails to sift through i get alot of junk mail annoying.

3- Plan of actions choose your site , decide how much time you have each day to comp day 1 to 5 of december are the craziest so i try to stick to one i usually use we entry and instagram but i do dabble on other sites. I find most of my advent competitions on competition database. Tho its easy enough to scroll through socials and try different hashtags do whatever works for you.

4- Christmas wish list – this is more for people who have limited time to comp during the festive season but is a bit of fun even if you not. This will help you focus on the prizes really want / need to make your christmas abit more jolly….. for me gin so ill litrally be jolly after one glass haha.

5- HAVE FUN probably the most important tip (well advice). obsessing trying to do all of the advents will not only be near impossible but so stressful try to keep it fun.

Be sure to head over to my twitter to win £49 voucher to buy someone a special gift. There will be a few festive giveaway keep a eye out or sign up to my newsletter on the side bar if you want. Lastly have very lucky december and a merry christmas!

January 2020 wins

Hi everyone, hopes you have had a wonderful winning January. I for one am glad it’s over been a poop month my wins defiantly lifted my spirits a little and kept me sane. I was lucky enough to win 16 prizes some I can’t mention tho as they will be gifts and I don’t want them to be seen. All in all been an ok month comping wise I did struggle with motivation tho back at it properly now let’s get winning.

 

My wins

The first win was from boom 25 won back some Christmas gifts yay.

The second win was quite a biggy a tablet and two phones which couldn’t have come at a better time Liam managed to drown his phone in the toilet it died a slow death and Emily’s old tablet wouldn’t load anything after many factories reset and me nearly lobbing out the window.

A makeup bag and tanning products on Instagram. Which I gave to my aunty as too dark for me love the bag tho and she loved the products.

Cineworld family ticket from Lidl gifted to a friend.

108 toilet rolls on Instagram. which my children spent a lot of time building towers with and knocking them over don’t think should have bothered with Christmas gifts lol.

A scruff a luvs limited edition from an email comp on loquax.

A box of panini stickers from Cadbury’s now to win the book scan. You can enter this to by buying a bar of Cadbury chocolate taking a photo and uploading it here 

Some cereal bars also from Instagram for myself and Sharon. kids love them too so a handy win and a great afternoon snack for my children who have hollow legs.

Now this one isn’t a proper win but it’s so lovely I’m counting it as one. At Christmas, I won some books with the little dish but they are out of stock so the publisher’s puffin sent these to say sorry for the wait and they will be sending the Christmas ones too so kind of them and my children absolutely love them.

Emily’s airhop party

Wow it’s July already where has the year gone as many of you know I was lucky enough to win private hire to air-hop in March with Sam fm a local radio station.

It has been really lovely to arrange with them originally was private hire for 250 people with 12 dominos pizza and unlimited drinks and some of the there socks for each person. When booking I mentioned I would be using the win to tie in with Emily’s 5th birthday and they were very accommodating. We had never been before so are very excited unfortunately under 5s we’re not allowed on the trampolines but they were able to use the soft play area in the cafe.

Upon arrival all was good I ended up doing a group wavier which made everything easier. It all ran rather smoothly tho I didn’t really know what was happening at times like wasn’t told were to get the drinks and stuff but wasn’t a big issue. I managed to get a lot of water when we were eating pizza and sweet cones. I’m pretty sure everyone had a lot of fun. Everyone seemed very happy and bounced out by the end. It has definitely been on of my best wins my daughter was so happy and all her little friends. It was a extra special experience for us all as we could never of afforded a party so grand thank you to the lovely lady who shared into Bristol compers club and thank you to Sam fm 🙂 lucky dust to all let’s have a winning August and no instagram bans please loool.

Lastly id like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and made emily feel so special never seen a girl so happy or so much mess the day after the sneaky monkey opened all her gifts when we were all asleep dread to think what time she got up.

Just a few photos of the birthday girl and Harrison wasn’t supposed to take any didn’t know until after tho oops x
