Create the perfect baby hamper, £10 or less!

Baby hampers, I keep seeing them everything with an outrageous price tag attached. I saw one the other day for £24.99 with hardly anything in it, talk about feeling it in your wallet. My other half has a friend and they are soon to be having their first child, yay. I thought, wouldn’t it be great to create a nice little baby hamper and at an affordable price. So I made one. I set out to make a hamper without breaking the bank and decided to make one for under £10, yes TEN POUND! You wouldn’t think that £10 would get you very far but you would be wrong. First of all you’re going to need to get a hamper which you can find at the moment in the pound shop and for only £1 imagine that! Then the contents, which can literally be anything you want although in this…

How we ended up saving up to £300 on food shopping!

Everyone has to do food shopping, it’s a way of life. It doesn’t however mean people need to spend their entire wages stocking up and filling the freezer. When I first got with my partner I noticed that throughout the month he spent an alarming amount of money on food. It was early days so I didn’t feel I could I could say anything about it although it got to a point where I noticed he would spend £400-£500 a month just on food. I mean that’s just way too money on food, it wasn’t like he got loads either. The cupboard were stocked and the fridge was full but there wasn’t anything major. I did notice however that the items being purchased were top of the line. They wern’t needed, well at least not at the prices they got bought at. I noticed as well that nothing was being…

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…
