Hello! Are you excited about getting your hands on some lovely prizes? Let’s not wait, and jump right in. Here’s what’s up for grabs this month:

Prize one: Kaftans by Annalisa
I don’t know where this little gem of an online store has been hiding, but I’m glad I found it. There’s a real contrast with shopping in real life and shopping online, isn’t there? No friendly service, just add something to your basket and get it in the mail, right? Not here. The team at Kaftans by Annalisa bend over backwards for their customers. Want something a little longer {to cover your knees, like me}? Or are you shorter and want the length sorted accordingly? I haven’t met a brand quite so accomodating and it was such a refreshing, pleasant surprise. I have the kaftan on the far left, and it’s light, with stunning quality.

One lucky winner will win the kaftan of their choice. They do long, short, plus-size, maternity and so much more. Check them out here.

Prize two: Ikea Business Packs
With more and more people working from home now {as well as in office spaces too}, Ikea has launched Ikea Business. It includes space solutions, and a free planning tool that gives tip and advice for creating the perfect space to run your business in. Ikea is giving up all the products you can see above for TWO lucky people. Each package is valued at $94.

Prize three: Carpet Court Rug
Carpet Court is currently running a competition on their Facebook page for The Great Flooring Fix Up. Yeah, you with the dodgy flooring at home – you can win $10,000 of new flooring from the Carpet Court team. To celebrate this competition they’re also giving one lucky Fat Mum Slim a little flooring spruce up too. One person will win a rug of their choice from the Artizen range {subject to availability} to the value of $300.

Gift four: The Encore 10 Expandable Booster Seat
With children in Australia now having to be seated in a booster seat until 7 years of age {with many parents choosing to use them well beyond that} a new booster seat has been launched by Britax Safe N Sound. It expands for the taller kids, and is comfortable for any child as they grow. It’s got fancy speakers in the headrest for long trips, so you can plug in the iPad or gaming device and have less noise in the front as you drive. The seat is valued at $349, and one lucky person will win one in the colour of their choice {black grey or Mars red}. For stockists visit Britax.com.au

Prize five: Olay Total Effects
I’m not sure if my Ma was the only one, but she was addicted to Olay when we were kids… and still is. Olay Total Effects is a great way to nurture your skin – and so 4 lucky winners will be nourishing their skin by winning a pack valued at $65 each. Each pack includes the products above, a day cream and a night cream.

Lego Friends is back, and this time they’re bringing new friends with them {9 cute animal figurines}. To celebrate the new additions I’m giving about 6 Lego Friends gifts packs valued at $34 each. Each pack includes Olivia’s Newborn Foal and 3 of the new animal concept sets; Turtle’s Little Oasis, Cat’s Playground and Squirrel’s Tree House.

Gift eight: An iPad mini & amaysim MOBILE BROADBAND
I’m gonna fess up. I’m jealous of the lucky person who wins this one. Seriously envious! Up for grabs is an amaysim MOBILE BROADBAND 10GB data all in Oz, available for 365 days {vauled at $99.90} and an Apple iPad mini 16GB with Wi-Fi and Cellular {valued at $509.00}. For those that aren’t familiar with amaysim, they’re an Australian low cost mobile service provider, which is perfect for people who don’t want to be locked into a contract and they also have free access to Twitter and Facebook throughout Australia.

One lucky {SUPER LUCKY} person will win the iPad mini and the amaysim MOBILE BROADBAND package.
