Win! A Year of Netflix

 A few weekends ago I was at the Irish Parenting Blog Awards do, a fabulously glamorous and stupendously well organised event run by the good people at IPB.

Despite missing some of my lovely sister-in-law-to-be’s hen to attend the awards ceremony and not winning any of the four awards I’d made the finals in, I had a great time. (Swear I’m not bitter, I wuzn’t robbed, the competition was just too strong).These Parenting Bloggers are a sociable bunch and I’d chats about all kinds with bloggers from all over.

My highlight of the night was the Netflix sponsored quiz (no, really, I’m super competitive)  which let me and my team mates Kate Takes 5 and Jill from Properfud show our knowledge of Irish Parenting Blogs and we won a Netflix subscription each. (Don’t ask about our version of the Kimmy Schmidt theme tune that we did to ensure victory). 

Since I’m in a good mood and want to spread it around I’ve decided to offer the ONE YEAR NETFLIX SUBSCRIPTION to one lucky reader.

To win just

1. LIKE Bumbles of Rice on facebook (HERE)

2. Comment below OR on the facebook post I share this competition on (clearly marked) saying why you’d like to win. 

Good luck!
T’s & C’s

The prize is a 12 month subscription to Netflix UK. The competition closes Monday 11th May when I will choose a winner at random. My decision is final. Plart of this competition is run on Facebook but it is not endorsed by Facebook.


This is not a sponsored competition. However, regular readers will be aware that I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team and received a Netflix subscription and an Apple TV in return for posting Netflix updates and reviews, however, all opinions are my own, and I already had a personal subscription before joining the Stream Team.


  1. I would like to win so I can look up all the great recommendations you made on Marian Fiounuchain πŸ˜‰

  2. I would love to win so I can catch up on some of the great programmes I hear others talking about πŸ™‚

  3. I would love to win because I’m on season 3 of pretty little liars and I NEED to keep watching! I have to find out who A is!

    Also Orange is the New Black is back soon and I’ll be needing to watch that too! πŸ™‚

  4. I would like to win because I’m not on Facebook so am blatantly discriminated against, as well as having 4000 less friends than the average person so I need to gorge on some top quality tv to help me get ahead in the conversational stake. Plus I have an excellent taste in TV accompanied snacks and unsolicited couched-based commentary. And so I’ll have to like you from afar.

    • Ah I didn’t mean to discriminate, my last Netflix comp wasn’t linked to facebook and I’ll tell you what I’ve another v cute giveaway in the next couple of weeks that I’ll divorce from it too. Glad that you like me all the same;)

  5. Orla Gallagher

    I would so love to win the Netflix subscription. I am facing into my final exams of my degree which fall right around my birthday (May 12th) and I think binge watching some amazing shows would be the perfect way to relax and unwind for a bit after making it through 4 years of college with a baby in tow! πŸ™‚

  8. I would love this to get me through the hours of breastfeeding day & night as there is never anything on TV despite having 100’s of channels! As much as I love starring at my newborn during feeds, the novelty of that will soon wear off and boredom sets in!

  9. I would like to win because I just cancelled Sky in an effort to make a few bob, but forgot that our TV isn’t digital ready. Therefore, no TV. Please reward my poor decision-making skills!

  10. Would love to win, because at our office water cooler, everyone else has Netflix, and is currently engrossed in conversations about programmes I cant currently join in on, such as Breaking Bad. Desperate me would like to be part of the discussions… Please πŸ™‚

    I would like to win so I can cut down on my Sky TV bill. I love movies but over Β£130 a month is a joke!

Sky TV, phone (with no phone call bill) and Internet is costing me what a brand new car would cost me! Netflix looks amazing!
