The pens students NEED from Platignum!

So I’ll just cut to the chase, I hate getting pen all over my hands and arms. It makes me look like a total tramp and it’s not exactly attractive is it? As a student I’m forever writing notes in class to never look at again and am forever looking for a pen in my bag. I have to point out though that although you can grab free pens around campus, most of the time they suck. They last a couple of weeks, they never smudge and the fact that they take forever to dry means my arms look newspapers after a lecture. I recently however came across a pen I fell in love with, if like me you’re a bit of a stationery buff you’re going to love this! Platignum make the best pens ever, so I got in touch and asked if they could send me some for…

The Stud Box, Absolute collagen the skincare treatment guys need.

As I get older I realise that my good looks, well they aren’t as good as they used to be. The amount of products I have in the bathroom has almost doubled since I was 14 and didn’t need to do a thing to look good. That being said I’m rubbish at finding new products that work well and do great things for my skin. I have the hair products down though. After a wonderful time at a blogging convention I got chatting with Absolute Collagen. They sent me a stud box to try out and I couldn’t wait, first of all who doesn’t love the word stud; total confidence boost for us guys. So a little background about the product before I let you know how I got on with it. Its made in the UK, high in protein and dairy, lactose and gluten free. Brilliant as I shouldn’t…

Slimming meals, a pinch of the price with Aldi! #Healthy

I’m trying to lose weight for when I get married, I’m forever looking at ways to cut back and eat better. When you’re a student like me however that isn’t always easy, you might just work from home or have no idea what to have for lunch or dinner. I used to eat loads of ready meals, until I started my calorie counting diet. Now for the people who say counting calories is a waste of time and doesn’t help anyone lose weight, I’ve almost lost two stone. The thing is I was doing great eating ready meals for lunch until I started seeing a decrease in the amount of weight lost every week. I took a look at the ready meals and almost fainted. Most of the ready meals that I had been eating had between 300-500 calories in them, sometimes more. It’s easy to over look a ready…

Contactless payment, is it helping anyone? Pros and Cons!

Most people these days would have heard of contactless payments, it’s basically the way of life now and most if not all cards come with the function to use it. Banks advertise it, shops love it because it means customers are moving through the tills faster, no matter how many sodding items may be in the bagging area! I got to wondering though, it contactless payment really all its cracked up to be or is it destroying our banks accounts and killing our budgets?! So while sat there watching some terrible adverts selling us even more crap we don’t need I thought I would share my thoughts on contactless and go through the pros and cons of the one simple action which costs you hundreds a month! My Thoughts? So I was thinking about this today at university. The only time I think about how much I am spending on…

eBay sellers, how to pick the best ones!

So eBay is a huge marketplace where you can buy next to anything on there. I’ve spent thousands on there over the years and have to say most of the items I’ve received had been fine, some haven’t turned up and others had been dreadful! I have to admit that before buying anything on eBay these days I make sure that I check out the seller. Not everyone will know the steps to take which is why I wanted to share my tips. What are they selling? So first of all I check out the sellers other items. I have found a few sellers that are only selling one or two items with poor feedback, or just the one item and then rubbish feedback. Of course this isn’t true for everyone but if you’re selling on eBay you normally have more than a couple of items selling at one given…
