Can You Really Make Money On Prolific Academic?

Can You Really Make Money On Prolific Academic? In my 2 ways to make extra money online blog post, I mentioned a website called Prolific Academic. Prolific Academic is a survey website with a difference. Have you heard of those survey websites where you spend 40 minutes filling out a survey, only to be paid a mere 20p? Or even worse, you spend 40 minutes of your precious time only to be screened out meaning you’ve completely wasted your time? Well, Prolific Academic is not like that at all. Instead of paying you peanuts you get paid a nice little amount of money for…

Galaxy Moon Necklace Giveaway

Galaxy Moon Necklace Giveaway In my January 2017 favourites, I mentioned that one of the things that I had been loving throughout the month was the Galaxy Necklace from my very own little online jewellery store. For me, this is a piece that is quite unique and different to a lot of jewellery on the market. The piece is made up of a 4cm by 4cm half moon pendant with a circular glass galaxy image centre. The pendant comes housed on an alloy link chain with an easy to use lobster closure clasp. This ensures secure wear around the neck. The chain…

Affordable Rose Gold Oval Makeup Brushes

Affordable Rose Gold Oval Makeup Brushes I’ve gotten a lot of cheap but good quality makeup brushes from AliExpress. Not long back I reviewed the 12 piece professional makeup brush set. Most recently I mentioned these cheap Artis brush dupes in my December 2016 favourites. The set that I purchased cost around the £5 mark but with many items on AliExpress the price seems to go up and down all the time. In the set, I received five makeup brushes, three larger toothbrush style brushes and two smaller precision style brushes. The brushes are made of sturdy plastic and feature pretty rose…

Slimming World Friendly Salt and Chilli Chicken Recipe

Slimming World Friendly Salt and Chilli Chicken Recipe A while back I shared my vegetable lasagne recipe which is pretty tasty and Slimming World friendly. In the past, I’ve also shared a sugar-free jelly sweets recipe which is also compatible with the healthy eating plan. However, today I’m sharing an even better recipe, Slimming World Friendly Salt and Chilli Chicken. One thing I love is a good fakeaway. Not heard of a fakeaway? Essentially instead of ordering a takeaway, you make it yourself at home. Not only are fakeaways a lot healthier, they’re also a lot cheaper too. One of my favourite fakeaways is…

Wilko Homeware Haul – February 2017

Wilko Homeware Haul – February 2017 A few years back I shared my 2014 Wilko haul. Since then I’ve gone on to buy various bits and pieces from the purse friendly shop but for some reason, I never really shared any further hauls, until now of course. As I mentioned in my 2016 goals recap Marc and I have recently bought our own home. This means that we’ve been on the look out for nice items to go into our home. Wilko has recently had some lovely bits in stock so we took advantage of this and picked up some lovely things…

January 2017 Favourites

January 2017 Favourites Always Believe In Yourself Slimming World Planner As I mentioned in my 2016 goals recap I’ve been following Slimming World for a little while now. For me it isn’t a diet, it is a healthy lifestyle change and one that I have found very effective for my weight loss. As a way of keeping track of my weight loss, I asked for a planner for Christmas. Marc very kindly got me this beautiful Slimming World planner and I must admit, I love it. It has weight and measurement tracking sections, weekly meal plan sheets, daily meal plan sheets and…

2016 Goals ReCap

2016 Goals ReCap Last year I set my 2016 goals. Instead of setting really difficult goals I set goals that I knew were achievable. In total, I set myself three goals. Here is how I got on: Lose Weight – Recap At the start of the year, I was at my heaviest weight I’d ever been. I was very unhappy and really very, very self-conscious. My aim for the year was simply to lose weight. I wasn’t too fussed about a quick weight loss, I just wanted the weight to come off and stay off. So how did I get on…
