Taking a break from competitions, why it’s beneficial?!

So If you follow me and my bog you will know that I love to enter competitions and do so throughout the month. I even post monthly updates on everything that I have won. Well the time has come to take a break from entering competitions for the time being, not because I don’t like it anymore but because I have so much to do. Entering competitions can be hard work and it takes up a lot of time throughout the month. If you don’t have this time to set aside you just aren’t going to win anything and that sucks. Well I have loads to do at the moment and I am going to Bangkok for two weeks in September so I am unable to enter any competitions! It would be pointless for me to enter 5/10 a week because I won’t win anything and I will lose time…

Do Supermarkets need to Honor Shelf Prices, Myth Vs Fact!

When I was growing up I remember my mum making a guy feel rather uncomfortable at Woolworths because an items was marked at one price although scanned at another. It was around Christmas time and I’m sure the price was marked at least 50% less than it was scanning at. They eventually gave her the item at the shown price and not the scanning one. I remember back then due to trading laws that the store had to honor the price it was marked up as. No question about it, if you advertise it you have to give it. However after recent experience I feel that this issue needs to be addressed. Do stores really need to honor shelf prices or is that a total myth? Recently I found myself in Home Bargains because there happened to be a Funko toy which was priced at 39p, yes 39p!! Home Bargains…

How disconnecting from technology helped my blogging focus.

I was sat there this weekend trying to think of ideas, going through my phone looking at pictures and on my tablet at various Facebook pages to ignite a spark within me and get my creative juices flying. My phone and tablet soon ran out of charge and as I was at my in laws I didn’t have my charger. I sat there with my Pukka pad and my mind went blank. Of course I couldn’t think of anything, not without my phone for help! I sat there watching the news and talking to my father in law and them BAM! The ideas started to flow and my pen got busy. I watched the news and spoke to my father in law and the ideas just kept on coming. It just goes to show that you might be trying but maybe you’re trying to hard. Stop trying to think about…

Vipon ~ Discounted and free products!

Everyone wants something for free, or something for next to nothing. You would think it’s pretty impossible to come by; these days nothing is free right? Wrong. I have been getting products for next to nothing and sometimes free for the past years and I think it’s about time I shared my secret, a secret that isn’t hidden very well! Vipon is an exciting website that brings you loads of different products from thousands of sellers on Amazon! The deals on Vipon are split up in different categories for the time being, Vipon has a habit of changing often so you need to be able to adapt. At the moment you have two set deals, Instant Deals ~ A product will have a certain amount of codes and it’s first come, first served I’m afraid. If you are quick enough you can click the Instant deal button and you will…

Amazon Reviews ~ Keeping your review account active!

You may have seen my post on Vipon and how you can get free and discounted products. If so you would have seen that the sellers giving you these products for next to nothing want you to do an Amazon review in exchange. Sounds simple right? Nope. I left reviews for a whole year until Amazon changed their practices and decided to wipe my Amazon account and make it so I can no longer leave reviews! I was a little mad so I took my case to Amazon, they told me that there was nothing they would do and the choice was final! I wanted to share my tips with everyone to make sure that the possibility of getting your account wiped is reduced. No one wants to get some ace products and then not be able to leave reviews. If you get your Amazon profile wiped you are less…
