Hello again everyone! How was your weekend, can you believe it is November already? Now Halloween is over and done with, and Bonfire Night is nearly here, Christmas can finally arrive Chez Greer! I have been trying to hold out as long as I can before getting myself too over-excited, but I can’t hold it back any longer haha! Let the Christmas films, crafts, baking and music commence! I know not everyone is as into Christmas as we are, so do just ignore me if it gets a little too much too soon! How was your October wins-wise? We are getting into the busiest comping season of the year now, and my wins have reflected this. I managed to scoop 22 wins last month, which I am pretty chuffed about. Here are some of my favourite prizes:
- A bottle of Jimmy Choo Stars perfume, from The Perfume Shop on Facebook
- A BodyBlade fitness kit, from QVC on Twitter
- £100 of Smiggle stationery, from the Closer Click to Wins
- A £20 Curry voucher, from a Twitter party
- A Stand Up To Cancer t-shirt, from a Twitter comp
- A stationery set and lunchbox, from a text comp
- Lauren Pope jumper, from a Twitter comp
- A running headtorch, from a Facebook comp
- A Fimo play set, from theschoolrun.com
I have had a fair few mini wins such as choccie bars, a Witch Blemish Stick and a Kilner jar. All these little wins really help to bolster morale, and keep us going in between the big wins don’t they. I have managed to pretty much finish my Christmas shopping already, and the office is filling up with festive food and drinkstreats. I like to be as organised and prepared ahead of time as I can – means we can all actually spend the Christmas season doing fun things, instead of dragging the kids round steaming hot shops.
Let’s see what everyone else has been winning during October shall we?
Xxme2uxx has had her usual fab winning month, securing such prizes as a selection of NibNibs snacks, back to school bundles, a fabulous Hoover washing machine, a children’s wigwam and a Shaun the Sheep DVD. Kslade won an iPod shuffle in the Dettol / X Factor instant win, Joan had a great month bagging herself a signed book, a House of Fraser clothes bundle worth nearly £1,000, a case of cider and £500 of Net-a-Porter vouchers, and Loulou1806 found success on Pinterest and won an item of their choice from the Morphy Richards Accent range. Lish2013 won a brilliant spa day worth over £200, mandy13’s granddaughter had a lovely surprise package turn up containing a selection of stationery that she won in the Staples colouring comp, and Laura44v won £50 of vouchers of her choice from Mumsnet. Rudders had a fab win of an iPad Mini in the Tombola birthday app draw, and janewilson won a duo of Bronnley gift sets from the Ocado blog – lovely!
My pick of my favourite winners this month has to go to hamish666, who has had a great month for wins. I am most jealous of the fabulous holiday to Malta worth £2,000 that they won, AND a TV bed! I know my hubby would love a bed with a built in TV – make sure you have lots of fun with that one!
Best runners up or small prizes this month have to be the footballs being given away by Capital One. I think quite a few of us have been allocated one of these including myself, kslade and gymchick76 – love it when companies have large amounts of prizes to give away, means we are all more likely to win something!
Right, that’s me for today, time to get on with some start of month comping! Believe it or not I already have a folder on my computer for Advent comps – eek! I will be bringing you a blog later in the month that gives you a heads up on how to prepare for the Advent season, so fear not if you are a newbie comper. In the meantime, here’s to lots of fabulous wins coming out of the end of October comps. Let us all know how you get on with November’s comps by commenting below with your wins. Don’t forget to upload a photo of your wins too for a chance to win a £50 voucher here.
I look forward to hopefully being able to share a few more of my own wins next month, and to reading all about yours! Happy comping everyone, lots of Lucky Dust to you all!

Just as I was recovering from the awesomeness of that win, a WEM landed in my inbox telling me I've won a week's holiday at Serre Chevalier Vallée ski resort in the French Alps for 4 people! I was literally in shock. The comp was with Ski Club of GB and includes ski passes and self catering accommodation for 4.
