For The Win

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm quite lucky when it comes to competitions and this month has been exceptional. So I thought I'd share a few of the bits I've been supremely lucky to win in the last 3-4 weeks.

So first up (chronologically) I won the E.L.F. Friday Favourites competition when I commented on their blog post. Having spent my own hard earned cash on their products, I was really happy to have won the Eye Transformer pallet. A magical product that changes the appearence of an eyeshadow. If you're interested, I shall do a little review at a later stage.

Next, I won another lovely competition to win a voucher. I can't wait to receive it, and I can't yet tell you what it is because of how I'm planning to use it and who reads the blog. But massive thank yous to one of the loveliest ladies I've come across in blogging, she knows who she is.

After that, I won a book. And not just any book, but my favouritest favourite play. The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. I never realised that The Woman in Black was a novel as well as a play, it's only now that the film has come out that it seems to have become quite popular.

Thanks to Elise of Foof and Faff for this one, it's next on my reading list!

And lastly this week. The lovely Aussie people on Twitter informed me that I'd won a £50 ASOS voucher. Cue much excitement from me as I'm hoping to purchase myself a couple of nice summery dresses for a trip to Nigeria I've been selected for, with my university in July.

Thank you to everyone from whom I've won something recently, I'm a chancer- I believe in 'in it to win it' and sometimes I have little lovely lucky streaks, and for those I am truly grateful because on days where I find myself wondering incessantly, what IS the point, things like this make it better and remind me that it's not all bad.
