My Latest Finds... Things that keep me entertained & smiling.

I'm always on the prowl for something tasty, helpful, fun and entertaining. No I don't mean Sal from Impractical Jokers, just a variety of finds on the net. As I always say, sharing is caring, unless you want my Jelly Babies - that's not ok.

My Latest Finds... Things that keep me entertained & smiling.

So, let's start with:

Park my fine. This is a genuine company where for every advertisement you watch, you get an entry into the sweepstake to see whether they will pay your latest PCN. It's as simple as that. It's quicker than coming up with a 'story' about why your fine should be cancelled. E.g I broke my leg on the way back from the bakers, My baby did an explosive poo outside MacDonald's, I was kidnapped by killer rabbits that only okayed my release once I'd bought them a bag of carrots etc... Give it a whirl next time you have the pleasure of receiving a parking fine!

For those of you that love Marks and Spencer's for their food, M&S beauty counters have been revamped into the spot for all the high-end and unique brands. Bore-off Selfridges. Not to mention their beauty boxes that are released every now and again at discount prices with certain purchases. I cannot wait for their advent calendar to be released this year (10thNow). They beat L'Occitane hands down. Also, with this advent calendar, you don't put on weight but do give your body a bit of TLC.

Then, while you're on Instagram - Rafael Mantesso. If you like Instagram and dogs, chances are, you're already following him, but I don't want anyone to miss out. His posts just tickle me pink. Great simplistic artwork, a scrumptious dog and a great campaign to increase Pitbull awareness.


Hacker T Dog. He is the CBBC dog that comments on anything and everything. For a dog, he's quick witted, entertaining and always has a new joke for you to pretend to pass off as your own. Perfect.

I just accidentally put my donor card into a cash machine. It cost me an arm and a leg."


Ok finally, as there was a bit of a girly advent calendar mentioned earlier, I've come across another alternative. The poundland calendars have had their day, there's some incredible ideas out there, but they are also very expensive (Beer, Gin, Beard Oil). Below is what I think is somewhere between different, affordable and disgustingly brilliant. Yes it's a Crackling Advent Calendar.



Get it here.


Happy November! X
