Freebie and Competition News (Part 2)

In the News

It seems that the Latest Deals website is struggling to cope with the chat I started, over 4 years ago, due to the volume of comments! So I am starting a new chat and waving goodbye to over 10,000 comments and starting fresh.

So where were we????

I thought it might be a nice idea to share our recent finds and discuss these on Chat. Whether it be a fab freebie or a spectacular win (or maybe it's just me being super nosey so you can tell me to take a long jump!) I thought it would be fun to report what we've been receiving.

And those of you that are 'Super Hunters' you might like to share some tips.

What do you think? Worthwhile topic or naff?

Afternoon all,

Postman came and bought a free sample with free P&P of lovebug cat food. This is insect based so I'm not sure if Tizzy will be allowed it as she eats posh cat food and she might not be given this. I also know she's not well at the moment (upset tummy) and not happy with the heat, so even if she does get given this it won't be until she's feeling better.

In other news, I've been told my beauty box prize should be sent ASAP and I'll get a tracking email when it does. I don't think it comes from the UK, so it might take a few weeks to arrive.

Posh paws really is a diva - gotta love her. ! Considering all the other stuff they eat intentionally, grass, fur etc the insects option made me chuckle. I've been putting out mealworms for the birds in the garden and recently caught a neighbouring feline hoovering them up.

sunny101 The weather is not agreeing with her. I keep trying to win her a cooling mat. Poor Tizzy. Now she has the s***s. πŸ™ƒ She would like to eat mouse. That's one she keeps going for. Not happening!

ShellyAnn I really feel for the furballs. I shared a deal from Home Bargains a couple of weeks ago with a cooling mat for Β£2.99 so they're no longer the silly prices that they were this time last year. Hope you get her sorted. x

Afternoon,

Postman bought a sample of aveda hair conditionery/treatment/mask/something. Not sure what it is πŸ˜€

Nothing else to report.

The roses are coming out as are the carnations and I harvested some kale today. There's baby apples on the trees. Here's some photos.

breakfast hellos!

my japanese/korean makeup box prize has been shipped from japan! I haven't had a parcel from japan for years! my penpal used to send me things from japan, but the price to ship over to japan was so high, I stopped us from sending each other gifts as it was too expensive. I should get it by monday apparently. Exciting!!

sunny101 Thanks for the link for the amazon cooling pad for tizzers. I had just done an amazon order as I would have added it to that. I aim to cash in a survey voucher, then order her one.

that's all for now.

Good news, there's a shirtless chris cornell gif. he's scary in this, but he's not really. I remember when this video was all over MTV..... we used to sing it at school. memories..

sunny101 Chris Cornell has been in my life for 30 years now. I like all three of his bands, soundgarden, temple of the dog and audioslave and his solo records. He was as talented as he was good looking and Chris was a babe! His voice - no one sings like Chris. here's one of my fave songs of his. It's a beautiful acoustic song called seasons.

I came close to seeing him live twice. It just didn't quite happen and now I never can. Still can't believe he's gone. Talented guy.

I forgot to mention yesterday the postman bought a sample of the lyonsleaf marshmellow balm, which I've seen everywhere. I'm confused as I wanted it but I didn't get it. I can't remember if it was sopost or what but I was under the impression I was too late to get it. Not sure how I managed to get it.

I also cashed in Β£30 of amazon vouchers. sunny101 I asked mum about a cooling mat for princess posh paws and she says there's one in either lidl or aldi that's cheaper than amazon, but she's not sure she would sit on it, so she might get one from there.

I had some sterling silver Celtic cross earrings arrive I used amazon vouchers to pay for. I've worn the same earrings for about 23 years now and I thought it was time to get rid of the hoops as these are so hard to do up and I hate my ears being touched, so studs might be easier.

These earrings are nice!

I did not see the lyonsleaf marshmallow balm advertised. Another one that has passed me by. Hope it's good.

I do love Amazon vouchers. They do come in handy for those unexpected purchases.

ShellyAnn Sorry, I am not getting all the tags at the moment. It's annoying! I came here to have a catch-up and saw my 'blue' tag. I think we applied to Lyonsleaf direct (not sopost) and I remember you saying they were all gone. lol. Well done - I really like the balm.

I came here to get away from the buying! I'm having a serious buying session - things that I need but nevertheless it seems like a bit of a binge. πŸ˜‚

I may even look at the cooling mats in Aldi/Lidl because the one I bought last year was used a lot during those hot months.......by the humans.

Love the earrings. x

ShellyAnn I like the celtic cross earrings, I rarely wear hoops either. I tend to wear either buffy the vampire slayer earrings, small understated Halloween earrings or earrings from Claire's accessories. Well done for cashing in the vouchers and getting the balm xx

Evening all,

It's like a ghost town in this thread at the moment. πŸ˜ƒ

Postman came and bought more clarins samples ?!??!?!?!?! not complaining. I think it is to make up for all the soposts I got told no for.

My japanese/korean beauty box prize landed at heathrow and now it is at Bristol! how exciting.

here's a couple of photos of the tiger monkeys and toad flax in bloom.

*hugs*

ShellyAnn It is very quiet on this thread, I'm not helping much. I'm slowly getting my mojo back. I did exersize today, thank gosh. I managed to take pictures of my freebies for the first time in days. I'm trying to regain my strength as I have my main dentist appointment in a week Wednesday, 23rd.

The flowers are beautiful, it must be lovely looking at them all. I think clarins has forgotten my address, so far they haven't sent me anything but oh well xx

Congrats on the Clarins samples. I am hoping to snag one of these. Not many samples of me of late, but no change there.

Your plants look amazing. So lovely. I had my first outdoor soiree yesterday and it was really so nice to see the plants in the garden that my partner planted on Thursday. The colours really make it. We have a vibrant sunflower in a blue pot and that's my favourite.
