Christmas shopping, When is too Early?!

Just how early is too early? I mean people save all year round for Christmas with these companies that take your money and give you vouchers in November, I’m not talking about that though. I’m talking about when is it actually okay to start buying Christmas presents. Personally in my case it depends on a few factors and I’m pretty shop most people will agree. SpaceĀ  It all depends on the amount of space you have where you live. I mean we have a one bedroom flat with no storage so it’s a little more difficult for us, yet we still manage to have three boxes worth of present stored away already for Christmas 2018! They are packed away so they won’t be a pain and get in the way, which is the main thing. If you have a lot of storage space wherever you live you might be in…

3 ways bloggers can generate new blog post ideas!

I get to a point sometimes where I end up writing so many blog posts and have loads of ideas, it’s great! I then get to a point where I’m sat on the sofa, at my desk or at university in a boring lecture and I can’t think of anything to write! It sucks, writers block is terrible. I sat down and had a good long think, I needed ways in which I could generate blog post ideas without having to spend too much effort. I mean no one likes to sit around for hours and go through various tasks in order to have an idea for a couple of blog posts. After a couple of days of thinking about all the possible ways I thought of three! Sure it could be more but you get what you’re given in life and you roll with it right? So without keeping…

Pick the best grooming product for your man this Christmas!

Every year we have no idea what to buy the fellas in our life! Christmas, it’s the same routine and it sucks. You ask what they want for Christmas and they have no idea! Which mean you end up with a pack of socks, chocolate and a lynx set! Not this year, this year I’m taking it upon myself to find something a bit more fun, creative and something that’s going to be remembered; for all the right reasons! I wanted to start with smellies that we all get for Christmas. I am so fed up with lynx sets, I don’t like lynx and haven’t since I was 14. I still end up getting one though! So I had a look around, got to chatting with people about what they like and found out some interesting bits. People want something fun, something they haven’t heard about or seen before. I…

Clarol, eradicate acne for the Christmas parties!

Does anyone else hate getting spots? I mean I know I do and whenever I get them it’s too late and I have to wait forever for them to vanish! I really need to work on preventing them. I see all the adverts on TV and think oh maybe I should be doing that! I then start looking into the products and I just think meh, they could be a little bit better. I don’t mean mixed reviews because I feel everything these days have mixed reviews. I like my products if possible to be a little more green, leading the way. Something that isn’t tested on animals and although I might not be one but I do love vegan products. Which is why I love Clarol so much. Vegan and free from testing on animals. So after chatting with the lovely people at Clarol I got my hands on…

No spend November – Toiletries edition.

So I’m the type of person who will see the sign “buy one get one free” and end up buying 5 just so I can get 10! If you are like me you may have a cupboard full of toiletries that you haven’t used and ended up buying in the January sales. I mean I wouldn’t class myself as a hoarder but I love a good bargain and I love to save money. The only problem is that I end up having the extra stuff for months, sometimes years. Which is when I came up with no spend November. A time when I can use up everything that happens to be filling my cupboards. First of all I needed to go through my cupboards though and that as quite a task in itself. Does anyone end up filling their bags with little bottles of shampoo and shower gel when they…
