that soap and glory life.

We all love a bit (a lot) of Soap and Glory. From the righteous butter to the sugar crush to their mini tubes of absolutely smelly goodness. But one thing I don't like about the brand is the price tag that comes along with the great everlasting smell. So what's my #thatbrokelife tip? Only and I repeat only buy Soap and Glory when Boots have their 3 for 2.

With 3 for 2 - 3 body butters for £16Without 3 for 2 - 3 body butters for £24 (I might have used the calculator for that one!)

Also when picking 3 items try and pick items with a similar price range because you only get the cheapest one free. So don't get two body butters and one mini hand gel because that means you only get the £2.50 hand gel free. 
Boots are always have these 3 for 2 offers where brands such as Soap and Glory are part of it so keep your eyes out!

that candle life

Yankee Candles. They smell good but can smell nasty in terms of price. 

Everyone loves a good Yankee Candle or any nice smelling candle. In the UK unfortunately we don't have bath and body works so Yankee Candle's seems like the next best candle to buy! But they are ridiculously expensive! My tip is to stock up whenever there's a sale. In Clintons I saw that Yankee Candles had a 30% off and then a week after a 50% off! So I stocked up on the samplers which only cost 90p (with the 50% off), what a bargain! These were my favorite scents!

I found that the smallest candle in a jar was a bit ridiculous costing just over £8, but I guess it's less ridiculous with a 50% off!

What are your favorite Yankee scents?

that summer life

So its summer and of course you're bored at home doing nothing. So what do you do? And what do you do that doesn't cost you much?

Go to a park! Park's can be so beautiful and of course they're FREE. Some nice parks in London are:

  • Hyde Park
  • Regents Park
  • Hampstead Heath Park
  • Holland Park
  • Kensigton Gardens
  • Richnmond Park
Of course there's always things in the park that might cost you like the ice cream van/shop! As well as the pedlo boats in both Hyde Park and Regents Park! To try and save a couple of coins try going before 12pm as it will cost you cheaper! 

Have a picnic in the park with your friends rather than going out to eat because it will cost you SO much cheaper!

What have you been doing this summer? Saving and having fun? Or spending and having fun?

that chewing gum life

Random post? Yes. Necessary post? Yes.

Gum. We all chew it and have our favourite flavour and brand, mine being extra. But how much do we spend on it? Those 60ps you spend on small packets on gums every other day add up! My tip - don't buy gum from newsagents or train stations, they're a rip off! Instead you can purchase 3 packets of gum in a mulitpack for £1 from poundland, wilkinsons and superdrug. That way you always have a stock of gum and it costs you way cheaper! 

So yes chew gum. Yes get rid of that stinky breath. But do it at a fraction of the price.

that body shop life

*Quick Blog Intro*
I see all these bloggers posting about all these brands which as a student I simply cannot afford! So why not tell others what I do to purchase a few of these hyped up products for a fraction of the price!

First up, the body shop. First things first the products smell amazing and so I'm sold at my first whiff! But £12 for a tub of body butter?! A little overpriced for a fellow student like me. 

I picked up this Papaya body butter recently (which smells a-mazing) for only £4.50! 
I never pay £12 for the body butters. How?

- I also use the discount codes that are featured on they often have discounts such as 40% so you can grab the body butters for only £7.20

- If you're with o2 they often do deals on the o2 priority apps featuring the body shop (there's a 40% on currently on)

- If there's a body shop sale I stock up. They often sell the body butters for £5 on sale and I got an extra 10% off the sale emailed to me. So sign up to their emails for future deals.

thats all from me,
