Our New Competition Community – #Compwins

Now we are at the beginning of a new year, it’s time to revamp your New Year’s Comping Resolutions.

What are your Comping aims for the year?

Is there a specific competition or prize you would like to win? That dream holiday? Vouchers for next Christmas? or even that little diary that is just darn cute!

We all have a desire to win. My aim is to win my husband an iPad. It was the same goal last year, so I’m more determined this year to win one for him!

Why not share your competition goals for the year on Twitter with me?
Tag me @RachelBustin and use #competitiongoals I would love to read them!

Community

I have though very hard over the Christmas period about starting up a new community on social media. One where we can all share our competition acheivements. We all know how hard it is to win nowadays.

Hard work, determination and belief all goes into entering competitions. So I’m starting up a competition winners community on Instagram and Twitter where we can all share our competition wins with everyone and give each other a boost when at times we struggle to find motivation to continue.

Stick to Stigu Planner Review 2017 and Giveaway

I feel so lucky to be able to review the new Stick to Stigu planner. Earlier on in the year I was grateful to review the 2016 version. Now here is the bright shiny new 2017 version. I’m a HUGE fan of Stick to Stigu. I just had to get that in before I follow with my review!

I have used my 2016 planner every day. Planning out not only blog stuff but I also use it for my personal life as well. It’s fantastic to add all of baby girl’s appointments in as well as my own.

At the weekends I love to sit down and plan out my week ahead. Seeing my week on one page makes it so much more manageable.

Stick to Stigu Planner review and giveaway

The planner is full of ideas, inspiration, things to do and tips to make your life more relaxed. At the beginning there is a page to write down your goals for 2017. This is fabulous for looking back over from time to time throughout the year reminding yourself of the goals you have set.

Zak and Jen’s Astronomical Adventures-Book Tour

I’m very pleased to be on the Zak and Jen’s Astronomical Adventures – Tinsel Town book tour. Tinsel Town is written by Natalie Page and illustrated by Chris Rivers Nuttall. It’s a fantastic children’s book in the Zak and Jen Astronomical Adventures series. Which started with The Petal Planet.

As you know we are huge book lovers. I’m sharing that love for books with baby girl. She might not yet understand what they are about but at 9 months old she love’s to turn the pages when we read together.

Zak and Jen's Astronomical Adventures

Book Description

Best friends Zak and Jen love exploring space using their magic umbrellas. This time, they find a Christmas themed planet, but there is one thing missing, the inhabitants! Join the characters as they make some festive friends, and realise how important it is to appreciate every day. Tinsel Town is written for children over five years old, however younger children will also enjoy the rhythm of the story and its festive theme.

Book Review & Giveaway: Mystery at the Ice Hotel

When I was about 10 years old I used to be into all the Nancy Drew mystery books and basically any adventure books I could get my hands on. I used to love going with my mum browsing around charity shops at all the books. We used to get some great books. Then Dad used to take us after school to our local library as well so I could top up my books every couple of weeks. Here I would save up my pocket money to buy the ex-library books. I would spend all day browsing in the library if I could!

Anyway onto the actual aim of this post. I have been given the chance to read and review a fab little mystery kids book called Mystery at the Ice Hotel it’s one of the Chasing Danger mystery books by Sara Grant. Totally my type of children’s book. I’m so excited to be on this book tour!

The Book of Everyone: The Perfect Gift Review & Giveaway

I have mentioned to my husband not to read today’s post as it contains a Christmas Gift for him. He can be difficult to buy a gift for, so when the lovely people at The Book of Everyone let me review one of their books it gave me a sigh of relief. That’s one gift sorted for him because it really is a gift for everyone!

Perfect for those hard to buy for people.

Oh and I can give one away to one of my fabulous readers as well. But more about that later on in the post.

Review

I popped over to The Book of Everyone to have a look around and see what The Book of Everyone is all about. My first thoughts were wow! It involves so much more than just putting in the name of the books recipient.
