BlogEvent: #SotonMeetUp























On Saturday I attended the #sotonmeetup which was organised by event planners Alice & Amy, who you can find at @southamptonbloggers. These parties/events are great for bloggers to chat about blog content, photography, fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
The event was held in a newly renovated bar called revolution situated in Southampton www.revolution-bars.co.uk
The day was packed with www.espaskincare.com  consultations (who gave out skin care goodies on our specific skin types ), www.hairfinity.com  are very popular at the moment, which the celebraties are loving! They gave us a months supply of hair vitamin, food supplements, they also put together a competition on who can do the fastest plat blind folded (I messed up a few times to a point where I basically didn't qualify! Hahaha ) the winner was Ami from @perksofbeingami, she received a box of HairFintiy goodies.
We also had cupcakes from www.lovecakebakery.co.uk , ice cream from www.judes.co.uk ice cream, www.cake-cetera.co.uk  pops and all sorts of yummy foods which I shouldn't of had as I'm trying to loose weight! (I blame Alice and Amy for my treat day which was overtaken by cocktails too!) I managed to catch up with some friends, Charlotte, Sophie, brogan, Maddie to name a few, but there were many more! As  the day come to an end the raffle was drawn in which There were lots of prizes...and I won! *the Katy perry killer queen perfume* (I already have two full sized bottles at home!) £350 was raised by the raffle for the www.epilepsysociety.org.uk , which is brilliant! We were also given two goody bags   from the event full of  items from many companies. http://natashajrd.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/whats-in-my-goody-bag.html?m=1

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
