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…

Contactless payment, is it helping anyone? Pros and Cons!

Most people these days would have heard of contactless payments, it’s basically the way of life now and most if not all cards come with the function to use it. Banks advertise it, shops love it because it means customers are moving through the tills faster, no matter how many sodding items may be in the bagging area! I got to wondering though, it contactless payment really all its cracked up to be or is it destroying our banks accounts and killing our budgets?! So while sat there watching some terrible adverts selling us even more crap we don’t need I thought I would share my thoughts on contactless and go through the pros and cons of the one simple action which costs you hundreds a month! My Thoughts? So I was thinking about this today at university. The only time I think about how much I am spending on…

eBay sellers, how to pick the best ones!

So eBay is a huge marketplace where you can buy next to anything on there. I’ve spent thousands on there over the years and have to say most of the items I’ve received had been fine, some haven’t turned up and others had been dreadful! I have to admit that before buying anything on eBay these days I make sure that I check out the seller. Not everyone will know the steps to take which is why I wanted to share my tips. What are they selling? So first of all I check out the sellers other items. I have found a few sellers that are only selling one or two items with poor feedback, or just the one item and then rubbish feedback. Of course this isn’t true for everyone but if you’re selling on eBay you normally have more than a couple of items selling at one given…

Get cashback on your shopping with Quidco

I don’t know about others but I find myself spending online at least once a month. After a busy month I end up spending at least £50-£100 online and it’s crazy.

4 negatives faced when using Gumtree!

Gumtree can be amazing, even more so if you read my post about how I got most of my furniture for free on Gumtree. Although Gumtree can be amazing, it has its draw backs. It has many of them in fact, although I would like to focus on 4 in particular that I find frustrating especially when you are tying to find something or you happen to be waiting for a response. Gumtree has some amazing features and ads daily. I would suggest going with price ascending if you are looking for a bargain. Lets start with the negatives and if you want something nice to read about Gumtree check out my Gumtree furniture post. 1, Take the darn post down! So to begin with you find something amazing! Good for you. You then send them a message to find out if the item is still available and if it…
