WIN £100 to spend on pampering yourself

Today I’ve got a fantastic competition for you, where you can win £100 to spend on pampering yourself at a spa near you. Christmas for parents can be a little on the draining side, financially, physically and mentally, so what better way to recharge your festive batteries than with a spot of self-indulgence?


The prize has been very kindly donated by lovetub. Lovetub is an indulgent chilled dessert, (not a saucy outdoor hot tub, as the name might suggest), packed in to one single-serve tasty tub. Each tub can be popped in the microwave and in 30 seconds you’ve got yourself a delicious gooey centred treat.

To celebrate the launch of their latest two new flavours, lovetub wanted to share the love and give one of my readers a voucher which entitles you to a beauty treatment of your choice, at a spa or beauty parlour near you, to the value of £100.

If that wasn’t enough, you could also bag yourself a free lovetub or a money-off coupon by visiting the lovetub Facebook page. Everyone’s a winner! If you haven’t already tried the delicious desserts, this is the perfect opportunity.

To be in with a chance to win a personal pampering session, you’ve got a few options. Each will count as one entry, so the more you do, the more chances you have to win!

  • Leave a comment on this post telling me why you deserve a treat
  • Go and like me on Facebook and leave a comment there saying hello
  • Follow me on Twitter and tweet the following – ”#Win £100 of pampering with @mummyblogger″
  • Sign up to receive new posts by email or RSS feed

The competition will close on 11th December and a winner will be chosen at random after that, so you can have your lovely treat in time for Christmas.

Good luck!

    I deserve this treat as I am a full time Mum to a four year old and I am doing a degree in journalism. I work really hard every single day and don’t get any time to treat myself or relax.

  3. 27 November, 2012 / 12:58 pm

    I would LOVE to win a massage or any kind of pampering. I am tired, overworked and underpaid (by myself I might add) and I love sweet things!

  4. 27 November, 2012 / 1:34 pm

    Hello -I’d love to donate this prize to my sister who needs a treat after her business premises flooded and two of the company vans were in separate accidents. All on one day! Thanks and good luck everyone!

    I am mummy to a beautiful little boy, Harry, who has just turned 2. Harry was born in 2010 and diagnosed with Downs Syndrome shortly after birth. Despite the initial shock and worry, Harry has been an absolute joy and I have changed in to a much better person because he is in my life….The last two years have seen many many appointments and assessments and I am so proud of the amazing progress my boy has made, but to be honest, I have forgotten about me and I feel that I have lost myself a bit…. I am gong to blow my own trumpet and say that I deserve this prize as I feel I deserve to recharge my batteries so that I can bounce back and be an even greater support to Harry…. I cannot be of any use if I am tired and worn out!!!! So please pick me !!!!! Because I am worth it !!!!!

    I’m a mama of a 9mo and haven’t had a full night’s sleep yet… I’m now back at work & have to move house just before Christmas. It would be lovely to get 5 mins for myself :)

  9. 27 November, 2012 / 5:53 pm

    I deserve to pamper myself as I’ve lost 2 stone on a diet!

  10. 27 November, 2012 / 8:22 pm

    I deserve a treat because I am a hard working and need a treat

  11. 28 November, 2012 / 12:20 am

    Because now it’s my turn. I always try my best to treat everyone else, but my hair is a mess, my eye brows need threading and don’t get me started on those blackheads…

  12. 28 November, 2012 / 12:22 am

  17. naomi smith
    28 November, 2012 / 3:39 pm

    Because i am a full time student, have a full time job, and have no time to myself so this would be the luxury pampering i need to have a perfect end to 2012.

  18. Toni Arnott

    I deserve a treat because I have sensibly using all disposable cash to overpay the mortgage every month for the last couple of years, so a treat would be a real novelty and greatly appreciated

    This has been a tough year (like it has for many others, I’m sure) for us as a family, but I am the glue that holds us all together, and is there for everybody. No sob stories, but just half an hour without worry would be a godsend!

  21. 28 November, 2012 / 5:10 pm

    A stressful year – lost myDad, moved house, children changed schools and so on. Trying to look on the positive side of things .

  31. 28 November, 2012 / 9:24 pm


    I’m not certain I’m the most ‘deserving’ of pampering, but I’m very stressed out at the moment and a trip to the Spa would be amazing! Your website really interests me because like you, I’m 19, pregnant and am set to be a single Mum.I can only imagine how hard but amazing it’s going to be! I’ve signed up to your emails, and are following you on Facebook and Twitter…So fingers crossed! :)

  33. 28 November, 2012 / 10:00 pm

    I’ll say that I’ve worked hard, that I’ve got two kids that keep me on my toes, Dad’s chemotherapy is bringing me down etc etc, but I don’t think I’m any more worthy than anyone else – but I’d love a treat :)

    After a stressful 3 years at Uni I graduated one month ago today and have been working as a primary school teacher since Sept in a job that I love – it certainly ain’t 9-3 though so a spa day would be AMAZING to recharge my batteries after a long hard first term teaching in the job!

However after a quick check with her we’d still like to enter, but if we win please will you pass on our prize to Sarah North, whose comment above moved us as much with what was unsaid as what was said. Thanks for running a thought provoking competition, and Merry Christmas. James

    I deserve a treat because I invited my in laws for Christmas dinner and after they’d accepted, they asked if their brother & his wife could come too, then my daughter wanted to come with her partner and their daughters and then my mum and dad decided to come too… now I’m stressing about how to fit everyone around the table!

  109. 28 January, 2014 / 9:59 pm

    I do go along with all of the principles you may have launched in your publish. They’re pretty persuasive which enable it to absolutely work. Even now, the threads are very quick firstly. Might you remember to increase these folks slightly by the next occasion? We appreciate you a post.
