How Amazon Prime has saved me thousands of pounds.

I have a lot of love, yet a lot of hate for Amazon for various reasons. However Amazon Prime has saved me thousands in the last couple of years and I wanted to let everyone know how. To start with I have to point out that getting Amazon Prime is easy as pie. If you haven’t signed up before you can start your one month trial and give it a spin. If you don’t like it all you need to do is cancel the subscription before it renews for the year. The Amazon prime membership for the year is £79 although cheaper if you have an NUS card. You can get your first 6 months free and then get a 50% discount for the rest of the year. So there you go, get 1 month free trial, then get yourself a card to you get another 6 months! Onto the…

Is an Amazon fire stick really worth buying?

As you might have noticed by now I love watching films and even have a Netflix account along with my Amazon video account. I decided to get an Amazon fire stick for my bedroom so I could watch a bit more, because why not? The fire stick offers so much more than Amazon video though which is why I love it. For starters you can download apps onto the fire stick so if you get bored you can play some games. However I mainly use my Amazon fire stick for YouTube. I have a few favourite vloggers, most of which have new videos everyday that you have to keep up with. Like The Mini Millionaire Vlogs two amazing vloggers who post daily videos everyday at 6pm! They are traveling the world at the moment and exploring all types of new places, check them out. Along with YouTube you can of…

Vistaprint, where to get business cards and much more!

As a blogger you want to be attending workshops, talks and events. In order for people to know who you are and to remember you, well you need business cards. I did some digging and had a look at various platforms where I could have got my cards designed and found myself every time being led back to Vistaprint! I decided to go with Vistaprint because they had the long standing credibility behind them unlike other companies I took a look at. Their website is easy to use with step by step guides all the way. In fact I have been using Vistaprint for a while now to make calendars as well as…

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.
