Quitting smoking comes with some MASSIVE side effects that you should all be aware of. You can check out my cig free progress here!

Quitting Smoking Update: I’d Definitely Swap My Moobs For My Wing Nuts Right Now

When you’re born with ears the likes of which have never been seen on one of such tender years before, you can guarantee you’re going to come up against some old, trusted classics on the banter bus. Every argument with our skids (translation for non Mancunians – my siblings) would invariably end in a dig at the jug handles on…

I was honoured to be asked to appear as a guest thrifty, money saver on BBC 1's Right on the Money with Denise and Dom. Here's what we discussed!

My Guest Appearance On BBC’s Right On The Money

After strutting out of my previous job back in April, my second day in the world of self-employment was spent appearing as a thrifty, money saving ninja on BBC’s Right On The Money. If you’ve never tuned into the show before, it’s a programme on BBC 1 presented by Dom Littlewood and one of my all time sporting heroes Denise…

You’re probably a member of a Facebook buy, sell and swap group or page, if not, I’m sure you’ll have heard of them. They are something I always keep an eye on, whether I particularly need something or not, just in case there is a chance to grab a bargain to flip sell it and make a bit of profit. However, since moving into my apartment last November I’ve been on the lookout for bedroom furniture and a dining table. I missed out on an amazing table a few months ago because Sidney the Sony decided to switch himself off and I missed the guys message - a trait that old Sid is doing more and more. It was beautiful and since seeing it nothing has quite floated my boat in the same way, meaning I’ve been holding out. I’ve been living with temporary bedroom furniture and eating off my knee for eight months and it has taken me to the brink of insanity, thankfully the furniture Gods smiled down on me this week and I’ll tell you how

Most people would love to have great smile, but the truth is not everyone can afford it. The most common tooth problem among the British is the missing teeth. Dental implants are the best solution. However, they may seem really costly in the UK (even £1,900-2,400 per single tooth implant). You can have implants done locally and go in debt or....you could combine your annual holidays with affordable treatment. How? The solution is dental implants in Croatia.

How Gordon Ramsay taught me how to run a kitchen

How Gordon Ramsay Taught Me How To Run A Kitchen

OK so the title of this article may suggest that I was hand trained by the legend that is Gordon Ramsey personally, not quite, but the guy has taught me an incredible amount about how to run a kitchen just from watching his shows. I’m a self confessed cooking show addict. PK has had to endure thirty eight seasons of…

How I Renovated A Cafe For Less Than £500

You may have realised I haven’t been around much recently. Just over six weeks ago I was made redundant and boldly stated I was off to become a full-time blogger and freelance writer. Well, things didn’t exactly go to plan on that one. A while back I started helping a lady I know with her Facebook page to help drive…

When you are trying to stretch those pennies as far as possible, be it to free up some money to tackle your debt, or to save away, your food budget is one of the easiest things to attack first. I balk at the suggestion from some people I know who insist there is nothing they can do to reduce their food shopping bill, there is plenty. But today I'm going to discuss meal planning, as it really helps to cut down your food budget as well as eliminating waste - something I cannot stand! This was one of the first things I did when I first started to take proper control over my spending, and I couldn't believe just how much I could skim off. However, it isn't just the money side of things why I advocate the necessity of meal planning and here is why.
