How to best avoid scammers on Ebay!?

Scamming is rife on Ebay and everyone that uses the platform will tell you how bad it really is. Thankfully I’ve only had to deal with it a couple of times and when I have I’ve been able to keep the money and the scammer has got in trouble for it. Ebay has many flaws and unfortunately scamming is one of them. The platform isn’t doing enough to protect sellers and is opening the door for dodgy buyers to get away with everything. There are so many reasons why this is true but that’s not what I’m talking about today. I want to talk about the ways a seller can try keeping themselves safe against these dodgy buyers. So let’s go kick it off with the tips that I’ve used and that have worked. 1, Pictures! On ebay you’re allowed up to 12 pictures for free. Use them all if…

My Mental Health Diary ~ February 2018 Edition

Mental Health is bloody difficult and I’m not going to sugar coat anything! I’m not looking for sympathy or anything like that when I write these diaries. So please don’t be thinking that, at the end of the day having mental health conditions can be very isolating. A person can end up thinking they’re alone, no one cares and that no one wants to listen. A lot of the time I won’t tell people how I’m feeling because I feel like they don’t want to know or they don’t believe me and think I’m making things up. My blog is my safe place, it always has been and I’m hoping it carries on that way. So I wanted a place where I could talk about my mental health over the course of a month, sure I might not have much to say one month, but sure the next month I…

Benefit drinks, for a healthier body!

You may have seen that I’ve been trying to get into the weight loss spirit this year. I’m not planning on joining a boot camp and I don’t follow diets religiously. The plan is to eat healthier and exercise more. One thing stumps me however, when people are trying to lose weight they focus so much on what they’re eating but never what they’re drinking! I see people eating a salad and an energy drink! I mean the amount of sugar and calories in that drink easily cancels out the salad they are forcing themselves to eat! Obviously the first part is cutting out all these drinks, making sure you’re getting less calories and sugars in your life. Although you can cut out energy drinks and trade them for no sugar or zero drinks that’s only the first part! I find myself buying no added sugar drinks and feeling no…

My Gym routine & Weight Loss ~ February Report.

Welcome to another one of my reports. Hopefully I’ve lost weight this month and hopefully you’re here to cheer me on. If you have no clue what I’m chatting about check out my other gym reports and check in with my progress over the last few months. With the many trips I have coming up in 2018 I decided it was time to get rid of a few extra lbs, even more so with a plane trip in a few months! I’m really excited about this. No time like the present so I joined the gym and thought I’d keep log of all the work out time I’m putting in, as well as everything I’ve spent in order to maintain my gym lifestyle. I hope you’ll stick with me through this and look forward to my monthly reports! The Gym… I go to the gym in Bournemouth whenever possible. I…

Stress, the complete biography!

Stress, I swear everyone goes through it now and again. It’s probably one of the most common diagnosed mental health conditions, along with depressions, which also sucks! Although stress is the most common, people aren’t always aware of the many ways in which is can manifest and trust me there are a fair few. I’m still learning about the many ways, although the hard way! I didn’t know the best way to do this post so I’m going to mix and match it. I’m going to do some lists and I’m going to explain a few of them in a little more detail. Why? Because not all of them need a long explanation and are self explanatory. You might recognize some of them and maybe have a little bingo card ready! Low energy, headaches and achy joints, upset stomach and constipation. Lack of sleep, too much sleep, eating too much…
