Don't be conned by websites offering too good to be true offers.
All these websites, living social, gogroopie and wowcher are well and good but they are not always as good as they sound. I takes 2 seconds to put the product in to google/Amazon and see how much it really is in the open market. Not forgetting the cheeky little postage costs that can sting you.
My featured artist of the week: Brian Royer. THE Breakfast Presenter aka @Royerism @FM1FMRadio.
Some of you may already know Brian Royer and his ever popular show weekdays 7-10am. But I decided to find out more, who's the guy behind the mike? I was lucky enough to have a chat with him over tea and biscuits (Tea Pigs and Oreo Crunch) in a Top Secret location ( I could tell you but then where's the mystery?).
My animals: Fighting like misguided Conspiratorial Cat & Dog
I have decided that my animals have at some point communicated in only a way that they know how, to drive me bat shit crazy. I have had my fair share of animals but these little fur balls are really taking the biscuit.
Time to get happy - What makes you tickle?
I'm not saying you're not happy, maybe I'm just sharing a couple of the things that make me tick or for some, this serves as a reminder to turn that frown upside down.
Recent research has shown that our emotional state has a huge effect on how we look and how healthy our skin is. Cortisol is a bitch and affects anything from bloating to pimples. Laughter can give us an ab workout (this is not strictly true but doesn't do us any harm). Happy people attract happy people. Negativity rarely breeds success.
Running - Are you on-board or just bored?
To some, running is just something 'other people' do. Maybe it just doesn't float your boat. The idea of pounding the streets in full view of everyone or knowing that when you are done and exhausted, you may not be where you want to be (as in home!) To others it is a like a need, escape and exercise. It is also a very relatively cheap way of getting incredibly fit.
Time for a few cheeky New Years Eve Cocktail suggestions:

Assuming you're going the route more frequently travelled for New Years Eve, where you all get together round someone's house for drinks, dinner, murder mystery, whatever floats your boat - you know the sort of thing. Avoiding overpriced, over crowded venues, followed by the obligatory surged Uber. Well that's me anyway!
