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…

Is Netflix worth your time and money?

Many students and young adults will know the struggle when it comes to Netflix! Do you get the subscription or not! If you do which level do you go for! For these of you who don’t know what Netflix is let me explain! Netflix is basically a subscription service that brings you shows and movies. You pay monthly for the service and in return you can watch anything they have available. The question is though is Netflix really worth buying or would it be easier and cheaper to go with an alternative subscription service like Amazon video? IS NETFLIX WORTH BUYING??  Netflix is popular with students unlike BBC iPlayer because basically you don’t need a TV license when you have Netflix. Thus in turn saving money while at university. So Netflix is totally worth it as a student as long as you don’t want to watch the shows you would…

A4 Canvas for £4.90 through Amazon, free postage!

Lately I have been looking for some great bargains, in time for Christmas of course. I happened to stumble across an amazing deal on Amazon not too long ago and thought I would share with the rest of the world, or at least the people reading this post. I have thousands of photos on my phones, literally 9,196 at this current moment in time. So I decided I would print a couple of photos off onto some amazing A4 canvas’s. I had no idea how they were going to turn out but at £4.90 I decided to take the plunge and order four! I got two lovely photos of my partner and I done, along with two geeky photos for the wall. The canvas’s were really easy to order as well. I ordered the four and then waited for the seller to send me an email so that I could…

Why you should be saving your Tesco ClubCard points for Christmas

All year round I shop at Tesco. I normally find myself in the reduced section of the store, or at least one of them in the hopes to grab as many reduced bargains as possible. After all who doesn’t love filling up their freezer for £40 and having it last most of the month? At the same time I love collecting my ClubCard points, I also love topping them up with my wombling. However I’m not one of these people who decide to spend their points every month and I don’t spend hundreds at Tesco each month for it to amount to anything worth spending. How do I solve this? I make sure I don’t cash out monthly and I wait till the end of the year to reap the rewards from all my spending. I know many people who have never heard about this before and had no idea…
