Volunteering at The London Triathlon 2017!

Image
Last weekend, as I was in London, I decided to volunteer for the London Triathlon. It was a lot of fun but very tiring! I was based at the start and end of the cycle stint and it all got very exciting.  Click here to watch the vlog or see below!
The first day I didn't really know what to expect and I got totally lost trying to get to where I was suppose to be. I was so late...well only 15 minutes, but I hate being late! My on time is 10 minutes early! LOL!

We got a packed breakfast and we were then taken to the venue. It was only a couple minutes walk but it was crazy to see the room and everything set up. We got welcomed into the staff room (one of many) and distributed our belongings before heading down to our separate locations.  After a lot of cone moving - those things are heavy! - and placing signs, the course was finally ready. After a quick break, we were in for a long day as triathletes started coming. I began at the top with one of my fellow volunteers, silently warning …

Verbal Reasoning (UKCAT Tips)

Image
I have done a couple of posts related to the UKCAT previously but I wanted to share some tips and techniques for each of the five individual sections. You can read those posts here where I shared my favourite books and here for information about the test, process, application and what to expect.

Verbal Reasoning is the first section and unfortunately it's most people's weakest section. The questions are very time consuming and with only 21 minutes to do 44 questions, people often fall into the trap of running out of time. Remember to keep an eye on the time and move on if you don't know the answer, flagging it and putting a guess. Hopefully, you will have time to return to it at the end, once you have reached the review screen.

There are multiple types of questions in this section and while you can use roughly the same technique to answer them, it is important to remember the key points which each type requires.
True, False, Can't Tell Questions: if you can't find t…

How to Earn with LipSense!?

Today I am sharing exactly how you can earn with LipSense, of which there are 3 main ways which it is important to recognise.

As a distributor you purchase products directly from Senegence or SheerSense at a discount. This can range from 20% to 50% depending on how much you purchase exactly.

Some people choose to join the team simply to get a discount for themselves. This is perfectly fine. The maximum discount a distributor can sell for is 15% so regardless of how much someone buys, they will always get 20% off which is great! Especially if they choose to use the whole range of products Senegence offers.

If you want to make a little bit of money of the side you can. You can sell produ…

Toucan Box: A Kids Activity Subscription Box!

Image
It's the summer holidays for most children in the UK now and while I don't have children of my own, I was looking for something fun to do with my niece! She's just had a baby brother born and I didn't want her to feel left out so I started looking. I came across the Toucan Box and it's amazing! 
The Toucan box is a flexible subscription service delivering creative craft boxes to children aged 3-8. It is super convenient because all the craft materials, instructions and inspiration is personally addressed to your child and delivered to your door. Kids can also enjoy the hands-on process of making, then play! Finished crafts turn into interactive games, dress-up, role-play, toys and much more. I love that is is inspired by Montessori learning and championing STEAM, so that each toucanBox is built by educational experts to help develop key skills. We got a pirate themes box which I actually really liked. My niece is a total tomboy and not really into girly things so …

TGI Friday's Competition Winner! / London Vlog

Image
A few weeks ago I found out I won the TGI Fridays' competition I entered! I got to invite 3 friends/family to come to London and stay at The Strand Palace Hotel.

Click here to watch the vlog or see below!

After picking my mother, sister and cousin up from Kings Cross we jumped in a taxi and headed over to our hotel which was stunning! I didn't realise it was literally opposite The Savoy Hotel where I went last week so when we arrived, I knew exactly where we were!

The lobby was stunning and the rooms were like any other hotel but boiling hot! Almost unbearingly. We set off out for lunch at a little cafe down the road which was yummy and then headed back to the hotel for everyone else to have showers and get dressed up. I was perfectly fine wearing what I was so I just watched some YouTube videos and did some work online.

Then we walked down to Leicester Square. I knew we would be super early but we didn't really have time to do much else so I'd hoped there was some en…

Today I am sharing how I package my orders! I am so excited to share this because I have absolutely loved designing my packaging and deciding how to send off such a special product to everyone.

I start by putting my business card, designed on Vistaprint, and usually the Starter Set in a little pink tote bag. I think this is such a cute way to package them and keep them all together. It can also be reused so it's perfect for customers.

With this, I place my invoice printed from PayPal, an individualised, handwritten letter thanking them and my two cards. One is a 'How to Apply' card and the other is a 'Tips and Tricks' card, both also from Vistaprint.

All this fits p…

8 Photography Tips for a Smartphone!

Image
I'm sure you all know how much I love to take photos and I have literally just invested in a DSLR but honestly, the camera I use to take most my photos is my phone. I have an iPhone 6S and the main reason I chose this one, over the previous version, was because of the quality of the camera.

I do love taking photo's on my small hand held camera and my DSLR but realistically, I don't take them out with me everyday. My phone is the camera I have on hand everyday and I know that's what most people use too!

After being inspired by Aura Frames, I decided to share my own top tips for capturing quality pictures.

Aura Frames produces a smart frame that automatically displays the best photos from your phone. Their product allows you to effortlessly share photos directly onto a family member's frame. You can even pre-select photos to appear on the frame right after they receive it!

So you obviously want those pictures to be good quality! Here are my top tips to take the perfe…

Start of Summer! / London Vlog

Image
So I may or may not have updated on here but I ended up having to resit exams, like I thought I would. I am going to write up a big life update at some point in the near future so stay tuned for that.
Anyway, last week, I finished my exam week and I celebrated big time...kind of.

Click here to watch the vlog or see below.

Luckily, my flatmate was doing a course at university in the same week - totally by chance - so she was around which was nice.

On Thursday, we went to Ask Italian for lunch and then headed to Westfield Shopping Centre. We bought Sophie her graduation dress (honestly it's stunning!) and I even treated myself to one! Not for graduation though, obviously. Towards the end we treated ourselves to some Lola's cupcakes!

On Friday, I got up bright and early so I caught up on all my TV. We then headed to Camden, walked around Camden market and had lunch at Pizza Express. Two Italian's in a row, I know! But I was craving the dough balls like crazy!
In the evening w…
