It’s time to admit my addiction…

It’s not exactly a secret but it’s pretty much an addiction… I like entering and hopefully winning competitions.

That feels good to say out loud as it’s not something I freely advertise amongst people I meet. It all started a couple of years ago when Bob & I were a little bored one day and decided to enter some competitions for a bit of a laugh. I did it on and off for a couple of weeks but never really got anywhere. Suddenly one day I got an email letting me know I’d won an iPod shuffle and it was like something triggered inside me telling me to try to win some more.

I don’t really have an addictive personality as such and have never really got the whole smoking, gambling thing but I guess my thing is entering competitions. I’ve been super fortunate over the last couple of years to win a fair few prizes ranging from a free lunch from walkers to £1000 clothing win. It’s definitely exciting when you win something and get to try out new experiences or products that you’ve won and it only really spurs you on to enter more.

Now it’s getting closer to Christmas it’s always a busy time entering competitions as in the back of your mind you think “oo what could I win for my family?” And on that note, I’ve been scouting for competitions that are more experience based to be able to treat my family and friends to something a bit more unique.

Red Letter Days are doing a fun Naughty or Nice quiz on the run up to Christmas offering the chance to win 14 different prizes over the next 7 weeks. This ranges from the oh so glamorous lump of coal, to a supercar driving experience and more.


Needless to say, I’ll be entering that weekly to try and win some amazing prizes. Watch me win the lump of coal now haha.


Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some other fab competitions you can enter on the run up to Christmas and hopefully win some great prizes. If you’ve won something awesome before then feel free to leave me a comment below as I’d love to hear about your wins!

Keep your eyes peeled for my other competition posts and get entering on the link above.
