  1. Typically, acne is associated with teenagers and young adults, but unfortunately, some of us are unlucky enough to get it even after we have crossed into our thirties! It doesn’t seem fair to have to battle signs of aging and teenage pimples at the same time, but it isn’t that uncommon either.

It is important that you listen to the early signs before it is too late.

  3. 'Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la, la la! 

    But not so fast. If you do not prepare well then the Christmas holiday can end up being a stressful season.

    Whether you are planning a big holiday celebration this year or will be taking time off to travel, you most likely have a ton on your to-do list but not much time to get things done. Even if you are not overwhelmed with to-do lists, the Christmas holidays can be very emotional.  They are also a time of financial stress.

    If you haven’t started preparing for the holidays, I’ve got your back. Here are five quick tips that will help you cope with the inevitable stresses we are usually dealt during the holidays.

  4. In this blog post we’re going to take a look at some of the top reasons to install smart home security.

    Smart devices for our homes are becoming more commonplace and we’re only just at the beginning of this exciting shift into more technological advances in and around our homes.  Some smart devices are purely for our own enjoyment and pleasure such as colour changing light bulbs.

  5. It’s been just over two months since my last Braces at 30 update when I made the decision to have two bridges with false teeth.

Living the good life can mean different things to many different people.   For me, reaching financial independence and not having that anxious feeling every day of worrying about money would mean I’m living the good life!  But also learning to be happy with myself and content with my lifestyle would mean I feel happy and am living the good life.  For me it’s not about having luxurious things or necessarily living in the best neighbourhood.

If working full time and long hours is something that you consider too big of a sacrifice, you might want to opt for a more rewarding career that will give you flexibility and great rewards emotionally.

    Rather than going back to the grind of a previous career, it might be time to make a change and search for jobs that make a difference in people's lives instead.

  8. No matter what industry, business owners look for the easiest and most inexpensive means of drawing new clients to their business. With the help of billboards, leaflets, marketing specialists and newspaper articles, this is somewhat effective - however, many of these offline tactics are outdated and not very effective when it comes to bringing new clients into your business. In fact, these methods may be costing you more than what you’re making from earned revenue. 

    With many businesses, it's the same problem - too much money spent on marketing and not enough revenue gained from new clients. Instead, small businesses such as hair salons for example, are turning to more convenient and modern methods of attracting customers, without spending a fortune.

    My mum is certain the seasons are changing and everything is shifting a little earlier through the year!

    Though the middle of the days are still warm, the mornings are really quite nippy.  I’ve already got layers on each morning with a hoody or knit to fend off the chill.

    As I look out into my garden it’s still very much alive with green, but on the school run this morning we crunched through fallen leaves of a tree that is almost bare and Bella collected conkers from the ground! 

    You can’t get more autumn than that!

    I feel like autumn is fast settling in and the cold weather will be here before we know it. 

    Because of this, here are five ways to get your home autumn ready:
