Competitions ~ What to do when you don’t get your prize!

Competitions are amazing, even more so when you’re winning. I mean entering competitions alone can be fun, don’t get me wrong. However there are down sides to competitions that no one likes to talk about, until it happens to them. Thankfully I’ve not had it happen yet and I’ve got everything I’ve won. I have had to poke a couple of companies mind you! I wanted to talk about what to do when you don’t get a competition prize though. It happens and it sucks, there are things you can do to ensure you get your prize and it depends on the person as to what route you want to take! At the end of the day though it’s up to the person running the competition to send out the prize, as part of the ASA guidelines otherwise they can occur a fine! So for example if you enter a…

Students, plan your future in year one!

Ask most students and they will tell you that the reason they are doing their course is because they want to work in that industry. You have the odd few that took their course because they didn’t know what they wanted to do, so they wanted to piss about for a few years though; I won’t be focusing on them! I want to talk about the students that have taken the direction in which they want to work and are focusing on university, with no end goal in sight. Although I want to talk about what happens after graduating and what you need to be prepared for, I also want to talk about a few options that might come up while you’re studying. The main one being placements, no matter how long. So take a read and find out why I’m so passionate about them, even if I hated the…

Cashing in on your used receipts with Shoppix!

If you find yourself collecting receipts and throwing them in the bin the first chance you get, you really need to read this post. If you haven’t done so already I would suggest checking out my Receipt Hog post, which is another app that can be used at the same time as the one I’m about to tell you all about! How to start…. 1, Download the Shoppix app on your app store. 2, Register to the app using this referral code 06JFUC08. 3, Grab your receipt, hit the camera button at the bottom and start snapping. How it works…. So just like the receipt hog, you snap your receipts and upload them for points that you can later turn into rewards. The best part about it all is that you can upload the same receipt onto both apps. Although that being said Shoppix gives you a few more rewards…

3 Top money saving TV programs I love to watch!

I was casually sat down watching TV when I thought, any money saving programs to get my motivation going? I wasn’t disappointed either! There’s a whole pool of choices when it comes to television although you need to know what you’re looking for otherwise you can get bogged down and spend a couple of hours catching up on Homes under the Hammer! I love sitting down watching television and I thought I might as well share what I found with everyone reading this post. Of course a couple might be something that you watch anyways, there’s one major show that I LOVE and everyone’s probably watched at some point, without keeping you waiting though; lets go! 1, Bargain Hunt So I said there’s one that everyone’s watched and of course everyone (I know) watches bargain hunt. I love watching the contestants finding all the weird and wonderful items to sell.…

My Gym routine ~ January Report.

I’m really excited about this. I’ve got so much to look forward to this year, BlogOn, Amsterdam and a few comic conventions! However after looking back on a few photos of me with celebs and on holiday I thought it was about time I started to lose a few extra pounds. 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 like the place, the facilities are on point although the changing rooms and toilets could use some work. I love to go when its nice and quiet, something about working out in a room packed…
