BEYOND THE BOOKS - #Winning or my lack off #Winning


KissinBlueKaren

Beyond the Blog is a weekly meme hosted by KissinBlueKaren where she throws out a topic (mostly non-bookish), and we blog about it!

This week - #WINNING!

#Winning is not something I do much of.

I guess I am unlucky, maybe the stars are not aligned in my favour but meh I never win anything.

Well that is a lie, in the past 37 years I have won....


SOME NAIL POLISH

BOOKS (YAY!)





A SWISH DOWER AND HALL BRACELET



That is it but maybe 2016 will be my lucky year!!

What have you won?

  3. I love nail polish and winning books is always such fun! I don't have too much luck with winning stuff either but it's always so exciting when it happens!

  5. I think all I ever win is bookish stuff! I won a wig at a fashion show once when I was 10 years old. Ha! Here's to 2016 being your lucky year!

  9. Those are great prizes! I love all of it and you can never have too much nail polish or books =)

  10. I used to win a lot more when I would enter tons of blog giveaways all the time. However, these days, I don't really search them out as much or I just figure too many people entered and I have no chance. haha

  11. I'm not a very lucky person, either, but when I do it's been wonderful. Pretty nail polish, and the bracelet is really cute.

  12. Aww you've won some things! So you're not a total non-winner lol. Anyway, winning books is the best thing so... :-P I do ok with giveaway, I guess, never won anything huge that I can remember, but I've won some smaller things like books. I tend to be really lucky with prize wheels though. It's so random, but it seems like whenever I spin a wheel, I end up getting the best prize on it (which is usually, like, a cheap tote bag or something, but whatever). So I try to do those whenever I find them lol.

    1. I would ideally love to win something big, like a holiday or the lottery!

  13. I have been winning books every now and then, and I love that, it's as if I get a birthday present when it isn't even my birthday.
    I don't win often, though, which I guess is normal, there are many of us signing up for giveaways and competitions :)

    1. There must be thousands of us signing up on some of the big giveaways!

  14. I seem to have periods of times when I am very lucky and seem to win all the things, and then long dry periods where I win nothing. I have read quite a few books because when I read so many blogs I just enter everything anyway. And some giftcards as well!

    1. Yep I am the same, it is a dry spell just now!!
