As the days are getting colder and darker, we look forward to coming back to a cosy and warm home. It’s great to unravel myself from the thick layers of a coat, woolly hat and gloves and then snuggle with my children with a cup of hot chocolate.
All I want is to sit in front of the sofa and cuddy my loved ones watching telly. But my children always have other ideas! They are full of energy and can’t sit still for too long! They love getting themselves hot and sweaty before settling down to their cosy bed to read books or to play games!
Recently, we came across this is Come Home to Cosy competition from Carpetright for the chance to win a brand new, state-of-the-art TV, courtesy of Ebuyer.com, as well as £500 worth of Carpetright vouchers a to spend on making their home beautifully cosy in time for Christmas.
So this is our #ComeHometoCosy video where both of my full-of-beans babies are jumping about, making themselves cosy in bed!
The competition is simple to enter. If you prefer to submit a photo, remember to try and create the most imaginative and relevant picture for the competition.
If you send a video, that would double your chances to win. You just need 10 seconds of footage! You can record it using your phone video, tablet or video camera!
Do make sure you follow these tips from Carpetright!
- Make sure your video is landscape in orientation rather than portrait.
- Make sure you use a high resolution setting so that your video is clear and crisp.
- Video length to be no longer than 20 seconds.
- Ensure there’s enough natural light and turn on extra lighting where possible – brightness is best
- Be as creative as you can. Family, pets and props are welcome!
As the days are getting shorter, it is best to do it this in a bright room like the conservatory, living room next to big windows and perhaps time it for the afternoon when you may get better light. If you record it at night, make sure you place a lamp pointing at your face or you could wear a festive dress!
What about a shepherd enjoying a cup of warm ‘mulled wine’? Ms C is pretending to be one! Sitting on her sun lounger enjoying the cosy moment.
Please note that they will be also selecting a number of their favourite videos and photographs to feature in a special short film as part of their Christmas ‘Come Home to Cosy’ campaign.
