TGDM Mixed Bag Giveaway *closed*

in Reviews + Giveaways

SO, I’ve been thinking.

It can be hard work running bloggy giveaways, with (sometimes) trialling the product first if there is a review involved), writing up the post, taking photos (if necessary), promoting the giveaway, monitoring entries, choosing a winner at the end, notifiying them, organising to have their prize shipped to them and publishing winner’s name on the blog.


SO…TGDM will be doing less of the single giveaways and instead will do a multi giveaway, every so often, when Brands want to host giveaways here.

Exclusion to the pretty cool giveaway I have coming up shortly.

And exclusion to Brands who have specifically asked for an exclusive review/giveaway.

To kick this off….here’s the first TGDM Mixed Bag Giveaway!

bosistos lavender pack

4 x Bosisto’s Lavender Spray Packs – I LOVE this stuff. I blogged about the Lavender Spray a while ago and we still use it here in Chez Gray.

I still use the Lavender Spray on our bedding. I love drifting off and imagining I’m strolling through a field of Lavender. Cheesy, I know.

I use a couple of cap-fuls of the Lavender Solution in a bath when i want to chillax and the Lavender Oil works a charm when I rub a couple of drops on my temples when I have a headache.

Bosistos are providing 4 packs, as pictured above, to give away to 4 TGDM readers!



No, we’re not f*cking there yet… and other universal truths of parenting” by Andrew Willis and Robin Swift {+ a Hinker book pack valued at approx $100}

Remember that book Go the f*ck to sleep? I still chuckle when I come across Noni Hazlehurst reading it. Well, there is a new book on the shelves called “No, we’re not f*cking there yet…and other universal truths of parenting”. With it’s beautiful illustrations, it offers stories that all mums, dads, (and every other family member who has dealt with a kid) can relate to.

With little nursery rhymes like this one:

“Bouncing baby on my knee, Baby smiles and laughs with glee, Faster bounces, fiddle dee dee, Now baby spews all over me”.

Funny book. You should buy it and give it as a gift to every pregnant mother. Heh.

Thanks to Hinkler, 1 TGDM reader will win:

Qubies food freezer tray

1 x Qubies Food Freezing Tray – When I was asked to review Qubies, I was going to say no because I thought it was mainly being pushed as a way to freeze breast milk and we all know I’m WAY past the stage of needing to do that.

But then after checking the Qubies website, I realised that it could in fact be used to freeze almost anything, as long as that anything was freezable!

The ideas are endless – baby food, breast milk, stocks, tomato puree, herbs, ice, sauces, lemon juice, left over wine (WHAT THE?!)

I love kiwi fruit, but I am the only one that eats kiwi fruit in this house. So it makes me sad when they are on sale and I can’t buy heaps because they will go off before I finish them in my smoothies.

So now I can still buy them fresh but also purchase some extra and with a little prep, puree them, stick them in my Qubies and pop a cube out to add to my fruit smoothie in the mornings.


Thanks to Qubies, 1 TGDM reader will win their own Qubies Food Freezing Tray

I know, right – it’s a lot more work than it looks like!

I’m hoping combining them will reduce it! Thanks for commenting :)

I want the lavender. I’m sick of the smell of cigarettes. We’re trying every day to get it out of this house. Neither of us have ever smoked before so we’re ultra sensitive to cigarette smells.

Oh, I hear you. We have never smoked either and years ago, we moved into a rental that had smoking tenants. And not of the smoking hot kind. Heh.
