When picking a phone case it is important that not only it looks good but that it protects your phone and isn’t too bulky. This case from Flamingo London is very lightweight but provides great protection, whilst being thin enough that it doesn’t add too much height and width to the phone. Bulky cases are often awkward to fit in your jeans pocket so you really want one that is quite thin.

They have lots of different designs to pick from and marble seems to be on trend at the moment.

You don’t want to have to pick between the functionality and the look and with these cases you don’t have to sacrifice one.

For £10 I think it is great value and this particular design goes with everything 🙂

I am one of those crazy people that enjoys the dentist. I love going to have my hygienist appointment as I love how it leaves my teeth so smooth and clean afterwards. I wanted to get that feeling at home so I decided to try the Hagsun water flosser at home.

At first it looked a little scary with all of the different nozzle options but once reading the manual and seeing what they all were I was really impressed.

You simply choose the head and attach it on, fill the tank with water, plug it in and away you go!

You can pick the pressure, I started off low and then increased it. You have to pause it to spit the water out and it is actually quite gross looking at the bits in the water that have come from between your teeth!

It is great for me to use something like this as I cannot floss mt bottom teeth due to my brace on the back of my teeth. I find it hard to brush behind properly so this is great to use as I normally use the small brushes to get in between my teeth. Using this machine once a week gives you that extra deep clean.

Bidvine is a great website that you use to find a local plumber, photographer, cleaner, guitar teacher, yoga instructor, pretty much whatever help you need.

I used the website to help a family member look for a wedding photographer. The site asks you some questions to find out more about what you are looking for and then you hear back from them with several options. If you decide to use the service, you can also leave a review, to then help other people that are thinking about using the same company/person.

To chose the service of a wedding photographer it asked a few important questions, some being: 

Would you also like engagement photos?

In what formats would you like your images?

What is your estimated budget for the photographer’s services and images?

How many hours will you require the photographer on site?

It is important you take the time to fill out your answers accurately so they can recommend the best to suit. Different questions are asked depending on the service, but it is important they know your budget and how soon you require the service.

The website itself is really easy to navigate and to understand. You can search by category and everything is very eye-catching and colourful.

I would definitely recommend it as I think its a really helpful site and I would rather use something like this than just search on google as it is more trustworthy and I feel a lot safer.

One problem I always have, is that my phones battery is awful! Anyone that has an iPhone knows that to start with they are amazing, then after a bout a year the battery just doesn’t last a whole day. I was carrying about an external battery pack and lead with me but I recently got my hands on a charging case to try.

This case comes in different colours but I opted for the black, because I mean like, black goes with every outfit right?!

The case is currently on sale for £44.99 which may seem a lot of a case but it is the worlds thinnest charging case and a lot easier and cheaper than buying an external battery or getting your battery replaced!

You can see it compared to my normal case, it really isn’t much bigger. I had a charging case before but it was just so bulky I ended up not using it, but considering this is hardly bigger than a normal case it’s pretty amazing.

You simply charge it until it is fully charged (there is a light indicator on the back), and then put your phone in it and when it needs more juice just press the little button and it will charge your phone.

As well as blogging, I like to enter a a lot of competitions online and also claim as many freebies as I can, I mean who doesn’t like a good freebie?!

There are so many websites out there that list the best offers and free samples but I recently came across www.gratisfaction.co.uk and it has now become one of my favourites to check daily.

Through this site I recently claimed a sample of a candle, some face cream, hand wipes, coconut oil and many more.

It doesn’t take long to click through and see what appeals to you, you can then fill out your details and apply. Most samples get sent to your home address but some make up samples you can visit your local counter to claim.

There are also lots of voucher codes available, either off specific products or shops/restaurants, it is always worth checking to see what is available.

It is a great way to get free/discounted items to try and often the sample sizes of things are great if you are going away for a few days or if you need to take something with you but don’t want to carry about full size.

Tje website is so easy to use as everything is separated into sections/categories depending on what you are looking for. It also shows you what things are currently popular/hot.

I would definitely recommend checking it out and bookmarking it!
