  1. Hey Lorna! I just watched your prize Unboxing. Wooooohooo congratulations on a job well done. I hope this month brings you many more surprises for us to see you opening in next months instalment. Love and Luck Em xx

    1. Thanks so much Emma! It was great fun to make too and gives me motivation to enter loads of comps!

  2. Wow well done!! Great video! I noticed you won quite a lot of prizes on Instagram. Any advice how to find good comps on there?

    1. Thanks so much! I would say I mainly search on #winitwednesday and #freebiefriday and they almost only bring up comps whereas #win often brings up sporty people, haha!

  3. Love your video - great to see the face behind the blog. I've been tempted to do unboxing videos but then i panic and think what if it tempts fate to have no wins that month! Also not sure I can find the spare time at the moment. Love your take away menus on your notice board - our noticeboard was the same when we were students xxx

    1. Thank you! It's nice to talk to my readers rather than just type haha! Yes that was a worry for me too, but it motivated me to enter more competitions! Haha, classic student flat!
