Wilko Home Haul March 2017

Affordable Cute Homeware: Wilko Home Haul March 2017 If you read my March 2017 Homeware Wishlist then you’ll know that I was lusting after a lot of bits and pieces from Wilko. Well, I caved and ordered lots of stuff. I did try to snap pictures of everything but some things were a little more difficult to photograph so haven’t made it into this post. However, I’m thinking of doing some house shots after we’ve properly decorated so you may see those pieces in future. Beautiful pieces for the kitchen The first things I picked up were for the kitchen. In my…

Homeware Wishlist March 2017

Homeware Wishlist March 2017 If you read my 2016 goals recap post then you’ll be fully aware that Marc and I have recently moved into a new house. After two years of renting a property we decided to take the plunge and we purchased our first home. When we first moved in we didn’t want to change a thing. The previous owners had beautifully decorated the place and it literally didn’t need a thing doing to it. However, now that we’ve been in the house for well over a month, we are starting to want to put our own spin on things. Take…

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…

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…

My Jolie Caramel Macaron Candle Review

My Jolie Caramel Macaron Candle Review I was recently sent the My Jolie Caramel Macaron Candle which is basically a caramel macaron scented candle with a twist. Inside the candle is a piece of jewellery. In terms of the actual piece of jewellery you cannot pick and choose, however, you can select the type you want to receive. For example, you can choose from either a ring, bracelet or necklace. When it comes to the specific design of the piece of jewellery, it is a total surprise. Because of the surprise element, I think the My Jolie Caramel Macron Candle would…

AD: Maximising My Morning With Shreddies MAX

AD: Maximising My Morning With Shreddies Recently I was contacted by the lovely people at Shreddies. The people over at Shreddies told me about some research they’d been carrying out. They found that only 24% of people surveyed always have breakfast. They also found that 41% of people say they don’t make the most of their mornings while 54% would like to do more with their mornings. I for one am guilty of skipping breakfast from time to time and I certainly would like to do more with my mornings. So Shreddies set me a challenge. High in protein and…
