Giveaways from the end of last week


In the mailbox where some samples from Vichy. At Hemköp I found a practical müsli-box you receive when buying just one product from Axa (I could even use a coupon for that one) and I also picked up some free bread from Schär's giveaway a while ago. Looking forward to try their gluten free bread!


Edit: By now I actually tested the bread and I am positively surprised! It's pretty close to "normal" bread, lush and slightly sweet. Should I have guests who prefer gluten free, I will certainly come back to this one! Slightly negative is only that it comes with comparatively much trash since it is packaged in both a plastic cover as well as sitting in a little plastic tray. Otherwise: thumbs up!

In my mailbox today


Yay! Two free magazines in my mailbox! "Alt i hemmet" and "Bamse". This is actually the first Bamse magazine I get to read, so a pretty interesting discourse in Swedish-kids-magazine-culture!

It's been a while since I took part in a campaign by glade and I had already dismissed ever receiving the promised subscription, but here it is! This one overlapped for me with an offer I just received from the app tryme. It's kind of a "meh" app. There is some coffee sample but to get a mini-subscription one has to answer tons of questions over quite a period of time. I made a quick call to the costumer service to not receive duplicates and voila: now I will be receiving almost half a years worth of subscription. Not bad :-)

Dufvenkrooks free giveaway overloaded their website!


It seems that the good people of Dufvenkrooks didn't really expect such a huge amount of visitors on their page wanting to get a free bottle of glögg! During November (next on the 17th and 24th) they'll give out 50 coupons (value 30kr) for which you can get a free "Lättvinglögg". The giveaway today pretty much broke down their website and it took quite a while for them to get it fixed. I hope the email will arrive anyway despite all the web-mess!

You can try it again here next Thursday at 11am, hopefully they'll be prepared next time!



Yves Rocher package arrived!


Last week I ordered two items from Yves Rocher (total 80kr with free shipping) and was surprised to get quite a few little extra items in the package! 2 little cosmetic bags, perfume sample, cleansing gel sample, 2 different shampoo samples and 2 cream samples. Plus a cute little bag of marigold seeds! I'm super happy with the purchase, yay! I wish L'occitane was as generous with their samples!

Right now you can get 100kr discount if you shop before the 23rd of November for a minimum of 399kr and use the code: VIP100YR

You can also get free shipping until the 13th of November with the code: FREE1611

Ready for NaNoWriMo?


In just a few days it's time again for NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month.

From November 1st until November 30th, 11:59 PM people all over the world are setting themselves the goal to write a novel with the length of 50 000 words! Yes! A whole novel in one month! The idea is to get going: to get all the ideas out which have accumulated over the last year (or years!) and to put them on paper (or in a digital file of course). Lots of cities have write-ins and meetups to write together and the website offers all kinds of free resources, prompts and a lively community for each others support.

Taking part is of course free and there are several offers from sponsors available around NaNoWriMo, here. I took part the last two years and it was great fun (and a massive coffee consumption!).

So, while your hubby/boyfriend/partner is growing his mustache to fund raise for men's health, why not add another fall project and get writing?

The not-so-hidden "hidden section" of L'Occitane's website


I can't tell how hidden this actually is. I didn't really think it was hard to find. But maybe it's interesting for someone. If you go to the  L'Occitane website here, you find a few offers you might have missed or which are (that's my guess) about to become available:

If you are a member and you buy items for 595kr or more you get a gift set (worth 175kr) including:

- Verbena Body Lotion 75 ml
- Almond Shower Oil 35 ml
- Shea Hand Cream  10 ml
- Shea Foot Cream 10 ml

The code for this is: GENERIC



As a member you can also call the store and reserve a time for a free skin analysis and mini-facial. Included in this is a 15% discount should you decide to buy anything.

If you are not a member you can sign up for it at their website or in any store. They'll send you an email after a few weeks and you will receive a little welcome gift (worth 255kr) if you buy something for 300kr or more.



Baby Boy Bakery: free (+shipping) subscription box trial


The Baby Boy Bakery is a family project by Jacqui and Dan Cruz who lost their three year old son Ryan in a tragic accident. The subscription box was created in memory of Ryan with the goal to promote spending time in the kitchen with your children and making memories that last a lifetime.

Right now you can test a baking-box for free (plus shipping)! If you live in the US the shipping is 5 USD, shipping to other countries will have an additional 3 USD fee. (That's only about 72kr!) The regular month-to-month subscription costs around 20 USD.

Use the code: FREEWECOOK at checkout. The offer is only valid until the end of the month. (10/31/16)

Free coupon "shopping"


I went out to pick up some items I had gotten coupons for through facebook. This is going to be my first time trying "Messmör". Rumors say it's an acquired taste, so let's see how that goes! Great that I get the chance to test it for free!

Originally the coupon for Messmör was for "Messmör Lingon". I searched all over the place for the lingon version but it was nowhere to be found. Mysteriously no one seems to have heard of it either. Luckily the coupon worked for the normal version as well. Has anyone seen Messmör lingon?
