Master Resources Post

I thought it was about time I started a resources page for any links and websites I think you might find helpful. This will include money saving websites, Affiliate sites for Bloggers, Influencer Campaign websites, Survey sites, offers and more!


Some of these links are affiliate/referral links and I will earn money or credit for the site if you sign up through them.

Airbnb
 I use Airbnb every time I want to travel. It is a place where people 'let' out their homes to you to stay in when you are travelling. I have found many great places to stay because of Airbnb and I always check here first as I have found many cheaper deals than going through holiday sites. Sign up using my link HERE to get £30 off your first booking! 

Booking.com
When I don't find anything suitable on Airbnb for a certain place and certain date I use Booking.com. It is a great place to find good deals on hotels and resorts and is the second place I go to after Airbnb.

TopCashBack
I use TopCashBack every time I shop online. If I know I want to make a purchase I will first check the online shop is eligible with them and then click through to continue my purchase. I then earn a percentage of my order back in credit which can then be transferred into my bank or Paypal. I have earned £52.30 with them so far!

Buzzoole
Buzzoole is a site where you can earn Amazon vouchers through doing influencer campaigns with them. You earn credits by participating in campaigns as well as doing small tasks such as following their social pages and you can also earn credits from referring friends. So far I have being involved in 2 campaigns and have cashed out for a £50 amazon voucher and I'm 15 credits off earning another £50 voucher.

Today's post is going to be showing you 16 dresses that I have in my wardrobe from the Australian brand Popcherry. I am a part of their VIP program (More info near the bottom of this post) and have purchased some of their random dress bundles which means I didn't know what dresses were coming until they arrived. There isn't every dress here that I own or owned at some point but all the ones I have taken photos with so far for my Instagram (Find my Instagram HERE). Let me know in the comments below which is your favourite dress from the ones shown below.

Guest Post: 7 Essential Things You Will Need To Go Back To School

*Today's post is a guest post by the lovely Gigi from 'Dress Them Up' - You can find her links at the bottom of this post. Please go show her some love and enjoy this post.

Can you believe that Summer is almost gone and that it's once again time to get ready to go back to school? Personally, with five kids in various ages it’s a chore to get everything they will need yearly. However, I have a back to school list that make it all that easier for you to shop whenever your kid is going to sixth grade or to college this year.


12GdgG5.jpg

1. Backpack

Going back to school would not be complete without a good sturdy backpack. They come in different colours, patterns, and prices. One of my favourite backpacks is this backpack by Vera Bradley or this one by Open Sky both are not only functional but great to look at as well.

If you are not into lugging around heavy books, then why not check out this wheeled backpack from Everest? My oldest child (who is going to middle school) uses one all the time and it has  diffidently saved her from staggering under the weight of all those heavy textbooks.

2. Jackets

It might be really hot right now (I know that the temperature is still hitting 90 degrees in my neck of woods) but once the first cold front comes in you will be thankful that you brought a good jacket. If your kid’s school is anything like my school, the A/C will be cranked up really high, so a thin jacket will come in handy right now.

I trend that I have loved in the last few years, is the bomber jackets. They really make me nostalgic for those old letterman jackets that the jocks in my school used to wear in high school. They come in various colours and patterns, my favourite this season has been this jacket from Charlotte Russé is practically a steal

3. Notebooks

In my opinion, a good set of notebooks are just as essential as a good sturdy backpack.  But who says that your notebooks have to be those old drab composition books and one subject notebooks? As  admitted notebook  junkie, I have everything from a small anime style notebooks  to big notebooks with bright bold colours and patterns.

If you are a serious notebook aficionado like I am, you can get a few custom made notebooks with your name or initials on the top of them like the notebooks from one of my preferred custom made online stationery store ‘Maya Designs’.

4. Athletic Shoes

Athletic shoes are a must-have for every student. Especially, your children will have P.E. or will be involved in sports this upcoming school year. With my kids, they are always rough on their shoes, especially on their athletic shoes., Like most children, they are growing up like weeds, and it’s no wonder that why I replace their athletic shoes yearly.  And even  if your kid is going off to college this year, a good pair of athletic shoes will be handy when they have to run across campus to get to class on time.  

Brands you should definitely check out are brands such as Newton Running (adult shoes only) and Plae . I have been a huge fan of both brands for years  and you totally should give them both a try. .

5. Planner

I am a disorganized mess, and that hasn’t changed at all since I was in school. A good academic planner will keep them organized with their school work, which result in keeping up their grades. Just like notebooks, the planner you buy doesn’t have to be plain solid color planner. You can get them in different shapes, colors and patterns.  And again, if you want to get really fancy you can have them customized like the ones from Plum Paper.

6. Pens

In my opinion, a good set of pens is the most essential item on this list. You can’t get your assignments or homework done without them!  I usually write with those plain Bic or Papermate  pens. However, I found these lovely pens by Etsy shop MagicalKawaii they diffidently would add a bit a pizzazz to their otherwise dull school supplies.

7. Jeans

When shopping for back to school clothes, shopping for new jeans is a must. My kids (especially the girls) have jeans in every colour from dark wash to bright purple. My little boy though sticks with the normal washes. However, jeans are so versatile and is diffidently a staple that everyone from children to adults should have in their closet.

The problem is that they are so many jeans to choose from. However, I really love these jeans from Old Navy and Venus.


This is the end of the seven essential things you need to go back to school. What do you items do you think are essential?  Let me know down in the comments.

Morland's Glastonbury Slippers Review


There is nothing better than getting home from work and putting your slippers on. It's the first thing I do everyday so when the opportunity arose to review a pair of slippers from Morland's I couldn't resist. After seeing the choices on their website I was sold. It was a tough decision to choose my favourite pair but in the end I went with the Sheepskin Seaforth Slippers in snow leopard colour (You can find them HERE

They looked so soft, fluffy and comfortable and boy was I right, they totally were. I put them on my feet and felt like I was in heaven. My feet felt completely snuggled and warm (even if it is summer!) and they are so comfortable and feel totally luxurious. They came with a shoe horn and dust bags for each slipper which are nice little touches. I'm never going to take these off. My mum also loves them and has tried stealing them off me on many occasions (she is a HUGE fan of leopard print). They do many other styles including ballerina pump style and the classic fluffy slipper style (which was my second choice) They even do slippers for men as well as having a collection of outdoor boots.
 
They also do the same style as I chose in plain colours so if you are not a fan of leopard print you could opt for the simpler colours. 

Have a look on the website HERE and let me know in the comments below which are your favourite pair.
