I was sent 3 different products to try raspberry panacotta, fruit and nut slab, and nuts about coconut selection.

#WinningWeekends (12 Sep) 4

Welcome to this weeks #WinningWeekends. This is a competitions linky. A list of blog based, open to the UK, competitions. I started this linky as I like competitions and know bloggers can get lots of new followers from competitions. As I am both a blogger and a comper I totally love anything to do with competitions and it is great fun when you win something you want. If you are a blogger, share your competition urls here. If you are a comper just get entering and winning things. Please note, the linky widget confuses people because it says “NAME” please pretend that says “link name” or “post title”. If you can mention the prize and closing date in there it would be great. If you link up a post, please consider putting this badge in to the link post, or in your blog sidebar to join in regularly. Thank you! […]
