Competition time!

Oh yes, I can now reveal all the details of the competition I mentioned yesterday, fun times.

So, because the lovely people at Matalan are just that, lovely, they have given me £50 of vouchers to give away to you wonderful readers.  Yes, i'm a little jel, as they say down in Essex, but you readers are fab, and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to read my rantings.  So thank you. 

If I could win the vouchers, i'd be getting involved with these little diamonds...

Oh, and have you checked out Matalan's new advert?  Roll on summer!

So what do you need to do to enter?
1. Be a follower of Clazzerati via Google connect (just click on the FOLLOW button on the right-hand side of the blog)
2. Leave a comment below telling me what you'd pick from Matalan if you're the lucky winner
3. Be sure to include your e-mail address/blog so I get in touch with you!

This competition is open to UK residents only.

All entries must be received by 5pm GMT on Tuesday 12 April and i'll be announcing the winner next Wednesday! Good luck! xx


  1. Oh, now, see I'm not supposed to be buying new things and then you wave the pretties and the video and that it'll be free cos you're awesome. And THEN you expect me to pick my favourites?! Ha! I'm so going to be spending money at Matalan in the near future regardless of the outcome ;)

  2. Lovely competition, thank you!

    I'm following on GFC.

    I'd pick this floral dress http://www.matalan.co.uk/fcp/product///Floral-Linen-Dress/34402&resultsPerPage=100&attrList=Dept,brand and some new kids clothes for my daughter.

  3. Hey Clazzerati!

    If I were to win I would choose the floral prom dress:


    I am also in desperate need of some summer essential cardigans (ahh, the great British summertime!) - assuming I could be sensible long enough to stay out of the shoe department... :D


  4. Lovely giveaway - thankyou! I would go for a floral maxi dress http://t.co/VTwaS3j - and also get some flipflops and a sarong for my trip to Spain next month! :)

  5. Hi Clazzerati
    It would have to be the floral maxi dress, or would i stock up on shoes, or would i end up spending it all on my two tots, so much choice....perhaps the shoes then the dress & perhaps have enough for tshirts ..... omg so much choice!!!

  6. There are so many gorgeous things at Matalan atm! If I won I'd have to get the Disty print halter playsuit.

  8. I love this sundress, can't believe it's only £14 amazing!


    Perfect for summer in a park... spinning round... getting dizzier and dizzier lol!

    Would spend the rest on a Stone Wash Denim jacket (£18) to go over it the dress...

    Spot Print Wellington in Nude and Black (£12) just in case it rains a bit...

    and so as not to hog all the vouchers a Floral and Butterfly Print Sun Dress (£5.00) for my little girl!

    £50 exactly! Phew what fun fantasy shopping is :)
