#WinningWeekends (11 Apr) 3

Welcome to the #WinningWeekends blog competition linky. Same as usual, pop your lovely links in the boxes below. For example put “30/5 Win a gift voucher – MyBlogName” in the box marked NAME if you’re running a comp to give away a gift card and the competition ends on 30th May. I don’t know about you, but I like to have a clue what I am clicking up front, and the closing date is just super helpful as I know some competition hunters look at posts from the last few weeks as well as the most recent post. #WinningWeekends means that bloggers can quickly link up their posts, and maybe grab a badge to show support, and compers can find a few nice competitions they might have missed. Even if you aren’t a “comper“, you might just fancy a quick flutter on a few competitions if you are feeling lucky.

The Manics in Cardiff 5

I am pretty sure people that know me well know I love the Manic Street Preachers. Last night was my Christmas present. Blokey gave me a xmas card with a note saying “this is a promise of a hotel booking, manics gig tickets for two and a babysitter”. We don’t get much alone time without the boys. A very thoughtful gift I thought although it was a long wait.

Winning Weekends (14 Mar) 15

Welcome to the blog competition linky. Yet again I am late posting this, I was distracted trying to do the Mad blog nominations, which closes today. I really am sorry, and next weeks will be nice and early, before school run o’clock. Same as usual, pop your lovely links in the boxes below. For example put “31/3 Win a kids DVD – MyBlogName” in the box marked NAME if you’re running a comp to give away a childrens DVD and the competition ends on 31st March.

Winning Weekends (28 Feb) 4

Happy Friday compers and bloggers, Each Friday I post this for you to share lovely blog competitions you have found. Linky it up 😉 I don’t really have rules for this but this is for competitions which UK residents can enter please, and I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “25/3 win your favourite shoes – blogtitle” rather than “my friends awesomely named blog”. End dates are great because if it’s got a long date it might be worth adding to next weekends as well and it’s also good to know what the prize is before trying to win it. I will try to add a few competitions to the linky myself each week before it goes live. The linky opens each Friday, and runs all week. #WinningWeekends means that bloggers can quickly link up their posts, and maybe grab a badge […]

Hair looks for 2014 4

The lovely Sarah has a blogger challenge competition on. I love these type of competitions, where ideas and writing them can win me nice things. Well this one caught my eye as an ex-hairdresser – £125 worth of hair kit. Count me in. For this post I am going to experiment with Polyvore, which I have never used before. So pretty please ignore any rookie/noob PV errors I might make? I think that imperfect plaits and messy flowing hair with head bands will be big. Hair ideas by julie-roo I also think that slightly crazy colourings may come back. If I was more body confident I would try the rainbow stlyes, but I also adore pastels. So a pastel rainbow could be perfect for me. Online there are lots of bright and tacky multi coloured wigs, avoid avoid, avoid!  If you like this style but want to start with a […]

Speck FitFolio Case for Nexus 7 1

Speck were lovely and sent us some cases to try, for 2 of our tablets and 1 of our phones. My eldest son D got his Nexus 7 last Christmas and he bought a very cheap leather look case from Amazon. It did the job, but within minutes of getting the Speck FitFolio case on his device he said he wish he’d got a better one a year ago and he couldn’t believe how much better it felt and looks. It costs £29.95 online. The quality difference is massive between Speck and the five quid generic tatt case he was using.
