I won my first Competition EVER

Ever since I was young I have been entering competitions from the likes of Kids to progammes, puzzles from magazine and prize drawers.
More recently i discovered the YouTube channel of Di Coke a pro comper who has a book and website dedicated to winning!
I was intrigued! I love watching Di Cokes what the postman bought at the end of every month and though I would love to receive some winning mail too! 
So I got to it entering competitions using all the help tools on Di's website and we'll blow me down. I've only gone and won my first prize one month in!
And an awesome prize at that! A buzz lightyear with an RRP of £49.95. I'm super chuffed! Little Parker even had an appropriate outfit to play with his new toy in..... 

So big thanks go out to @Superluckydi for her tips and to @amummytoo for running the competition 
Here's to more wins in 2016
Much love

Blogger Mail Kiddies Gift Exchange

Like a mentioned a week or so ago me and a lovely lady called Jenny did a gift exchange for our baby boys and here's what we got! 
Head on over to Jenny's Blog after here to see what i purchased her little boy Gregory

So I know it's not Christmas just yet but we couldn't contain out ur excitement to open our presents!

The first Present Parker(me) opened was the splish splash water books which are amazing as I told Jenny that Parker loves reading and bath time as he's a total water baby! So this combines two of his favourite things to do! Perfect!

Th next item we opened was the Fisher Price Press and Crawl
My first reaction to this was WOW. How has Jenny got a Fisher Price item to come under the budget of £10 total and by more gifts! I was amazed and told her this and she assured me she found it at a bargain in a local toy shop!
This is fab for Parker who is now into watching and reaching for things so send the press and Crawl infront of his feet and he tried to reach it! Brilliant toy for getting Babies motor skills going!

The last gifts I opened for Parker left me gob smacked! 
Handmade Crochet hat and mittens! Absolutely adorable! I try my hand at knitting but can never get the jist of crochet but now this makes me want to try! I feel these broke the budget alone! Not necessarily with physical cost but with the cost of time,effort and love put into the them!

Last but by no means least was a present for me! My weakness ..... Thorntons choccies! Thank you Jenny you didn't need to buy me these but where massively enjoyed with a cuppa while watching my guilty pleasure of car crash reality tv!

Special Thanks for Jenny for making this swap possible! If any of you lovely lot fancy a box swap in future give me or Jenny a shout I'm sure we can sort something!

Bareminerals Dashing Duo

On Black Friday this year i decided to visit my local Debenhams Store and to be honest i wasn't really feeling the savings where that good but I did decide that as I needed a new mascara I would try the Bareminerals Lash Domination seen as I wear the Bareminerals foundation and concealer.
On first impressions the sizes in the box are smaller then I expected 
The wand on his how ever is fab it's a short fibre wand with a spiral effect to it to get deep into all the lashes. It was brilliant at separating the lashes I will add a photo in here when I remember to take one instead of taking snap chat selfies lol.
The lip gloss reminds me of the Soap and glory sexy mother Plucker it has major plumping effect which makes you tingle as soon as it hits the lips!
To say this was only £12 in Black Friday I would purchase it and recommend it but the mascara will get used every day the lipgloss will be a night out kinda thing as if I kiss my baby boy I feel either his lips will blow up or he will have a a reaction to the plumper lol.
All in all 8.5 out of 10 for this!

Blogger to Blogger Christmas Mail

In November this year I was contacted by a lovely lady over Twitter (who we must of found each other via mummy bloggers or our blog) called Jenny from about a pair up project she was thinking of starting around Christmas time where fellow mummy bloggers send each other child related items to review. (See Previous blog post for full write up) Any way life got in the way as it always does and the project has been put on hold until 2016 but never the less me and Jenny choose to still do a secret Santa swap box for our baby boys. We set a limit of £10 to spend. Jenny has a daughter also and I'm all about never leaving a child out so i sent her a few pressies too so she could feel involved! 
I'm excited to see what Jenny managed to get for the budget and to see what she thought of my purchases.
Stay tuned for unboxing blog this afternoon. In the mean time if you want to receive blogger mail and the pair up project go ahead and reindeer hop( seen as its Christmas) over the Her blog of even better her Twitter at @hipsterbloggo and don't forget to follow me too I love keeping in touch with my readers! You can find me here at @trinimamabebe 
Mucho love and Hugs
