Win Various Prizes - Ends 21/02

OK, my team are 1 of 10 finalists in the Buried Ransom competition over on Facebook and we are going to run a competition with some fab prizes to help us to win. We are not very comfortable about offering an incentive for our votes, but Film Feed (who are running the competition) have quite publicly announced that this is an OK thing to do and as we gained 170+ votes just from the support of our friends and family, we have now fallen behind to the other team by 60+ votes so thought we would offer a competition to try and catch up.

What can you win?
5 guaranteed prizes (5 guaranteed winners) from our prize bundle
1 prize bundle awarded to 1 winner *if* we win the competition
1 place on the Survival course (as we have 1 spare place) to 1 winner *if* we win the competition

How do you win?
Well a few simple steps will gain you entry into this competition:
1) Press the 'Like' button on the Film Feed page CLICK HERE
2) Click 'Like' under our group photo CLICK HERE
3) Post a comment below with your name on Facebook (so we can verify if you have liked our groups photo), a link to your Facebook profile or Twitter username or another way of contacting you should you win. In the comment, please also let us know if you would like to be entered to win the extra place on the Survival course - it will be somewhere between Liverpool and Bristol as that is where we are based - just put COUNT ME IN

What are the prizes?
1x Place on the Survival course *if* we win
1x Big prize bundle *if* we win
5x Guaranteed prizes (regardless of if we win or lose) to 5 separate winners

So a total of 7 prizes (7 winners) to be won if we win, or 5 to be won if we don't win. So you can't lose (well, unless you're not a winner)!

Some of the items to be won include an England football iPhone cover, iPod Nano superclip, mini DVD lens cleaner for camcorders, automatic paper clip dispenser, gummy digital watch, Belkin Gender Changer, pink leather National Lottery ticket holder, light blue leather card holder, bottle of wine, bottle of perfume, bottle of aftershave and more - our team are sponsoring the prizes as we really, really would love to win this course.

Win A Case Of Wine & My 3 Favourite Love Tunes Ends 28/02

OK, I am entering a fab competition from Price Minister using this blog post to try and win a pair of iPhone 4 mobile phones for my husband and son. By commenting on this post, you will not only be helping me to win, because I am also offering a case of wine to 1 lucky person who follows my blog and comments on this post by 28th February 2011. UK only eligible to win, but all welcome to comment. Leave your comment and your Twitter username or Facebook profile link or some other way of contacting should you win.

OK my blog post and entry into the competition... I have to list my 3 favourite love songs with a 200 word summary (of each I think - I am checking on this so post might get modified). So here goes:

My favourite category of CDs on Price Minister is the reggae section as this is my favourite type of music - is where you can find it too.

1) Has got to be You're The First, The Last, My Everything by the amazing and much missed musical wonder, Barry White. Why? Because it's a song that defines love - about meeting that one special person you know you are going to spend the rest of your life with - it just makes you want to curl up into your partners arms the minute you hear it. It describes the feelings you get when you fall in love with someone - "You're my reality, yet I'm lost in a dream"  -  it's that feeling - that it's just a dream you don't want to wake up from because you are so happy.

2) A very close second is (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher - the fabulous sound of the much missed Jackie Wilson. Why? This is a really feel good song - not just about love though it is uplifting and feel good in life in general - every time you hear it, you can't help but sing and dance along as it is so upbeat. Again, in terms of love, it is a song about meeting that someone who just completes you and makes your life better. Describing how you once felt down and lonely - "Now once I was down hearted, disappointment was my closest friend, but then you came and it soon departed, and you know, he never showed his face again" - maybe that you'd had some disappointment in past relationships maybe and were feeling lonely until you met your special person.

3) My third may seem a little out of place but I will explain later - Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom by The Vengaboys is my third choice. Why? Well, me & the hubby (then boyfriend) used to listen to this a lot when we first met and moved in together back in 1999. It's not at all related to love in any way, and maybe a little dirty sounding rather than romantic ("Boom, boom, boom, boom, I want you in my room, let's spend the night together, from now until forever" and "Boom, boom, boom, boom, I want a double boom, let's spend the night together, together in my room"), but hey, I was only 16 and him 19 at the time, so you have to forgive us lol. There really is no accounting for taste in music at that age! To be honest, I was a massive fan of The Vengaboys, but I think the amount I used to play this song over and over may have annoyed Paul at the time lol - I think he started off liking it and ended up sick of it!

WINNER: @needaphone

Congratulations! Please send me your address via Facebook or Twitter to claim your prize within 72 hours.
