So here is the competition. 2 winners will each receive £15 Ant Bessie’s Vouchers plus an Aunt Bessie’s Oven Glove. Did you know that Aunt Bessie makes a variety of products for great family meals? They are not just about Yorkshire Puddings (although they are yummy!) but there are also casserole mixes, accompaniments, desserts and even gravy!

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favourite part of a roast dinner.

Win a Day Out at Pennywell Farm with Britains

This competition is now closed and the winner has been notified
I’ve got a really exciting competition to share with you today in association with Britains and Pennywell Farm. Britains has teamed up with Pennywell Farm to offer 1 lucky family a free ticket to the farm plus a fantastic crop of Britains Farm Toys!

Experience the fun of farming at Pennywell Farm. This multi award winning farm has lots to offer to both children and adults. There’s a lot to see and do; along with the traditional farm animals, there are displays, activities as well as a play area. Why not take a trip on the Tractor Ride around the farm or ride the new Red Rocket? Or perhaps you might want to trot along to a pony ride? There’s lots to do whatever your age and whatever the weather at Pennywell – and it’s Devon’s Friendliest Day Out!

Pennywell Farm offers a great day out for all of the family, but the farming fun doesn’t end there! Each winner will also receive a selection of Britains Farm Toys worth over £50. The Large Livestock Building (£24.99) comes complete with Yorkshire boarded sides and added height for extra machine manoeuvrability – very useful come feed time in the barn! The Massey Ferguson 6480 Tractor with Front Loader (£21.99) is a great addition to any farm, and the front loader is just the job when it comes to moving hay bales around. Winners will also receive a set of Friesian Cows and the all-important essential feeding Troughs (£4.49) and Big Square Bales (£4.49). It’s the perfect package for young farm hands to get their Britains Farm collection started and put into practice what they’ve learned on their day out at the farm park.

Yeo Valley Farm Tours and Garden Tours Competition

This summer Yeo Valley (they who make the yummy yogurt!) is opening its doors to the public with a series of Farm Tours and Garden Tours and I’m lucky enough to have a pair of tickets to give away!

Starting on 29th June, both of these full day tours will provide visitors with an insight into the organic world of the Yeo Valley family farm in Blagdon. While the farm tours will be led by local expert Les Davies MBE, the garden tours will include a special chef food demo on how to create the best-tasting dishes with organic produce. Whether you’re a fan of the products, are interested in gardening and sustainable methods, or would just like to get involved in a fun day out, Yeo Valley’s farm tours and garden tours have lots to offer.

Yeo Valley’s Farm Tours will be led by local expert Les Davies MBE. You will get the chance to learn about organic farming and why it is so important to our planet and the future of British farming, as well as meet Yeo Valley’s prize-winning, British Friesian cows! You’ll also see the fruits of some of our environment and conservation work, like dry-stone walls, hedges and woodland. Yeo Valley’s Farm Tours are a full day and include lunch at Wills Barn and afternoon tea.

The dates for the Farm Tours are:

  • 29th June
  • 6th July
  • 20th July
  • 28th September

For keen gardeners and green enthusiasts alike, Yeo Valley’s Garden Tours will give you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn some top tips from the horticultural experts at Yeo Valley. Taking place at the Organic Gardens’ Tea Room at Holt Farm in Blagdon, Yeo Valley’s Garden Tours will include a comprehensive garden tour – one of only a handful of organic gardens in the UK, a talk on organic ways to make wonderfully rich compost and keep weeds and pests under control organically, plus a special chef food demo on how to create the best dishes with organic produce from the vegetable plot.

The dates for the Garden Tours are:

  • 10th July
  • 24th July
  • 4th September
  • 18th September

Last year Yeo Valley’s Farm Tours were described as: “a fantastic day. The farm tour was brilliant and the staff were very helpful and obliging. Les Davies’ knowledge was second to none.’

The Garden Tours were described as having: “splendid plants and layout in an idyllic setting…all of those concerned with the organisation, planning and presentation of the tour were so knowledgeable and committed to their work.”

Yeo Valley’s Farm Tours and Garden Tours are both all-day events priced at £30 per person. For more information and to book visit



I have one pair of tickets worth £60 to give away. The winner can choose either the Garden Tour or the Kitchen Tour, and can choose from the available dates. The closing date is Wednesday 4th July and the winner, chosen at random from all valid entries will be contacted by email.

iStylista Review and Giveaway

I’ve never been any good at knowing what clothes suit me. I hate clothes shopping (for me!) with a passion and finding an outfit for a special occasion fills me with dread! Since Pumpkin was born, I’ve reverted to a daily uniform of jeans and t-shirts, with just a few favourites being worn over and over again!

So when I was given the chance to review the Style Goddess style guide from iStylista I jumped at the chance!

iStylista gives you all the benefits of a Personal Shopper delivered straight to your computer! It was really simple, I just filled in a questionnaire about my body shape, lifestyle and colouring and my Style Goddess guide was ready in minutes.

I was really impressed with the 31 page style guide that was prepared for me. It covers all my questions about what shapes and styles suit me. It also offers tips for dealing with problem areas and takes into account my lifestyle as a mummy. The suggestions are practical and the section detailing the content of my capsule wardrobe will be a real help when I’m shopping.

Its not just designed for skinny minnies either! I am far from that and my style guide offered advice on dressing with a large bust and thighs.

I’m looking forward to taking this information shopping with me as I look for my new summer wardrobe (no strappy tops for me, I need to make my shoulders look wider to balance my hips!). But I will be investing in some skirts, A-line are particularly good for my shape.

If you want to get a style guide for yourself you can use this code R4E6-3YD4-VR to get 40% off. Or enter the giveaway below.


I have 10 prizes of a free Style Goddess guide to give away. To enter (Please leave a separate comment for each entry):

1) Leave a comment telling me your best feature (come on ladies, lets be positive!)

2) Like Devon Mummy on Facebook and share a post about this competition.

3) Follow Devon_Mummy on Twitter and tweet ‘I want to win a style guide with @devon_mummy’

4) Do one of the following; Add www.devonmummy to your Google Reader (or similar reader) or subscribe to my blog via email (see box top right of blog). Please leave me a comment to let me know that you have.

Please make sure you leave me a way to get in contact with you. This giveaway will end at midnight on 31st March. Good luck!
