Evo Shave, the handy razor for any situation!

Razors, I’ve used a few that’s for sure and I’m yet to find the perfect one. I’m not saying these are perfect but they are pretty darn special. So you see all the adverts for women and their razors. They have them for any occasion, on the go, parties and at home. Men don’t, well they didn’t anyway; until now. Evo shave, they have them for women as well but I happen to be a guy so let me tell you why I love them so much. I took one to uni the other day! You know you can get them little bottles of shaving foam, well I took chucked one in my bag along with a razor and had a shave at uni before a big presentation. It was amazing, sure someone walked in and looked at me a little funny but what the heck! So the razors, they…

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…

Create the perfect baby hamper, £10 or less!

Baby hampers, I keep seeing them everything with an outrageous price tag attached. I saw one the other day for £24.99 with hardly anything in it, talk about feeling it in your wallet. My other half has a friend and they are soon to be having their first child, yay. I thought, wouldn’t it be great to create a nice little baby hamper and at an affordable price. So I made one. I set out to make a hamper without breaking the bank and decided to make one for under £10, yes TEN POUND! You wouldn’t think that £10 would get you very far but you would be wrong. First of all you’re going to need to get a hamper which you can find at the moment in the pound shop and for only £1 imagine that! Then the contents, which can literally be anything you want although in this…

Slimming meals, a pinch of the price with Aldi! #Healthy

I’m trying to lose weight for when I get married, I’m forever looking at ways to cut back and eat better. When you’re a student like me however that isn’t always easy, you might just work from home or have no idea what to have for lunch or dinner. I used to eat loads of ready meals, until I started my calorie counting diet. Now for the people who say counting calories is a waste of time and doesn’t help anyone lose weight, I’ve almost lost two stone. The thing is I was doing great eating ready meals for lunch until I started seeing a decrease in the amount of weight lost every week. I took a look at the ready meals and almost fainted. Most of the ready meals that I had been eating had between 300-500 calories in them, sometimes more. It’s easy to over look a ready…

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…
