A winter OOTD and stories about competitions

I don't know why, but I seem to be a lucky old lad when it comes to entering competitions. Just the other day I won an organic veg box. Here is the story of some other competitions I have won. 

1. When I was 10 I won a £10 voucher in a colouring competition at Debenhams. I thought all my Christmasses had come at once tbh. I dragged my mum round Debenhams for about 2 hours before finally choosing an Adidas cap which I never wore. Good times. 

2. When I was 13 I won a Warren Stacey CD and T-shirt. What do you mean you don't know who he was? Only one of Pop Idol's original rejects, thanks very much! I think I won this because I was the only person to enter. When it came in the post, it had a tiny black hair in it and my and my friend freaked out because we thought it might be Warren Stacey's actual hair. Heavens above.

3. When I was 23 I won a £500 Harvey Nichols voucher. I decided to sell it on eBay to fund a trip to Benicassim (the music festival), as I had gone the previous year and had a great time. This year however... WELL. Firstly, the ticket I bought on Gumtree was fake so they wouldn't let me in. Who would have thought a ticket bought from a random guy on Gumtree would be fake eh? The mind boggles. Luckily I was able to buy one from a girl who had decided the festival wasn't for her (smart girl) so we pitched our tent and started having a jolly old time. The next evening, there was what I can only describe as a mild hurricane which came from nowhere and resulted in most of the bands cancelling. We were pretty smashed so took it a lot less seriously than we should have, and spent most of the time wandering around pretending to be Michael Jackson in Earth Song whilst getting red dust in our eyes.We woke up the next day to find a pole had collapsed mere inches away from our heads. Such fun. We also got pretty badly sunburned, my friend sprained her ankle and my neon pink nail polish exploded in my bag, covering all of my clothes.

4. More recently, I've won beauty bits from two blogging competitions (one from Estee Lalonde), a print from an Instagram competition and a prize in a photography competition. 

The moral of this story, reader, is that if you win a Harvey Nichols voucher, spend it on a bag or something.
