Competition: Win a Ted Baker iPhone 5 Case worth £25: Ends Midnight 30/01/2014

Incase you missed it on facebook or twitter the lucky winner of the Ted Baker ‘Timeless Romantic’ iPhone 5 case, was Zoe Roxby.  The competition was so popular, (over 230 people entered), I have decided to run another giveaway, for another Ted Baker iPhone 5 case.  This design is called ‘Sweet Talking’ and is watermelon scented!

The competition is hosted on facebook; https://www.facebook.com/How2bBornLucky/app_143103275748075

This competition is unsponsored and will close at Midnight on Thursday 30th January 2014.  (The same closing date as the Pinterest competition which is here incase you missed it)!  The winner will be announced within 48 hours of this date.

Normally I use the Rafflecopter app to allow a random winner to be drawn, but on this occasion I’ve decided to trial Woobox – I’d be grateful for your feedback as entrants as to which app you prefer.  Please let me know in the comments section below.

Good luck!

Creative #Competitions I’m entering this month! Jan 2014

I found at the end of last year I turned into a very lazy comper, sticking mainly to facebook and twitter competitions which took just a moment to enter.  Not that I will be stopping that as I’ve had some great wins, but I wanted to go back to doing more involved and fun competitions too.  The kind that really got me hooked on this fabulous hobby almost 15 years ago.

Pinterest is something I’ve been aware of but never used to its full potential, so I’ve been having practice over Christmas, and now I’m looking for competitions on there with low entries.  This year I’m especially interested in any prizes of furniture, home decor, household goods, etc. as I wish to completely revamp my property.   Thats why this competition to win a £9000 new bedroom from Furniture Village really caught my eye!

http://www.furniturevillage.co.uk/magazine/Competitions/New-Year-New-Bedroom.aspx

You can have multiple entries but you need to submit each individually with a new board.

I came up with my first bedroom idea centred around the theme of Hollywood glamour, you can view my entry here.  I submitted this on the 9th Jan and then I was a little disheartened as on the Furniture Village facebook page their resident blogger released a post entitled Hollywood glamour on the 10th!  I had a feeling this might prevent me from winning as the judges might think I hadn’t had my own idea so I came up with 2 further entries.  My second entry, submitted on the 16th Jan, was all about the perfect bedroom for peace and quiet and can be viewed here.  Finally on the 18th Jan I submitted my seaside bedroom theme found here.  It was time consuming entering this competition, I estimate around an hour to complete each board as I was really looking for the right pieces, but the prize is of such a high value I felt it was worth the effort.  Fingers crossed!

The closing date for the competition is 20th January 2014 so be quick to get your entries in.  Feel free to share with me your boards too.

Another Pinterest competition here with Next to win 3 x £100 Gift Cards.

Here is my entry: http://www.pinterest.com/MeSueYouWho/new-year-new-you/

And now for some photo competitions……….

I’m not sure photo competitions are altogether ‘creative’ but I’ve found just that little bit of extra effort involved can reduce the number of entries.  Although this one from Topshop just because of who they are will undoubtedly be very popular.  But as I love my not so little William I thought I couldn’t miss out on this opportunity for him to have his image on a pair of socks, (and the pets owner also gets a £250 gift card)!

To enter, simply tweet or Instagram a picture of your pet @Topshop with the hashtag #TopPets by 26th January at midnight.  This is the image I entered of William, I’m guessing it might not be ‘kooky’ enough for Topshop but he wasn’t in dressing up mood whilst I was wanting to enter!

I spotted another pet photo competition with Pets At Home so thought I’d make double use of the photo while I was at it.  You do need to be a VIP club member, the winning prize is a £25 gift voucher, and it closes on January 31st.

And my final competition for this post I haven’t actually entered yet, I’m pondering how I’ll persuade a friend to join me in dressing up as a man as its really a fabulous prize………  but it requires a ‘bromance’ photo!  Send in your pics before the 13th February for the chance to win a VIP experience to the England v Ireland Legends match on 21st February at The Stoop.

This competition is unsponsored and will close at Midnight on Sunday 2nd June.  The winner will be announced within 48 hours following this date.  Be quick!  Just one week to get your entries in.

Rafflecopter is a widgit that allows you to run a competition and a truly ‘random’ winner be drawn.  I like it when I see people using rafflecopter as it takes away the human element of selection, (it is also against Facebook t&c’s to run a like and share competition).

I am using the free version of Rafflecopter (come on, I’ve just started the blog)! and sad to say that means you can’t enter the giveaway from your mobile as the ‘free’ technology doesn’t allow it.  So email yourself a little reminder now, go on then, NOW!  Have you made yourself a reminder?  And then you will remember to visit again from your laptop or pc to enter the competition there.

Good luck!
