Renovating your home can be one of the most stressful and expensive periods of adulthood, whether it’s building an extension or just updating the fixtures and features of your home. Along with it being a stressful and financial heavy time, it can also be time costly, well unless you’re a millionaire, but if you’re not, then the chances are these things are going to take a rather long time as well as it being stressful and costly. 

With this day and age though, we’re fortunate enough to have a company around for basically anything and everything, a point proven to myself the other day when I fancied warm, fresh out of the oven, homemade brownies, sadly I  just didn’t have the time to bake. However, my tummy was soon satisfied when a quick search online introduced me to a local baker, living just two miles away from me. After a quick telephone call, my brownies were ready to be collected still warm only an hour later. 
London, what goes through your head when you hear, see or say the word London? To me its chaos - lots of people, black cabs, buses and trains, people, crowds of people everywhere, it's rushing, it's shopping, it's fast, it's loud, its even another world and that's coming from someone who lives only 30 minutes away from London via a fast train from Paddington. 

Passing my driving test last July was without a doubt one of the best things I've done, I didn't realise at the time how much more freedom it would give me and Spud, and even the dog benefits too, considering he gets driven to luxury parks to walk or should I say sprint around. From going food shopping without worrying about carrying heavy bags, to driving down the road in the pouring rain, it's been a saviour and something I'm so glad to of achieved. 

If you need extra money but you don't have the time or energy to take on another part-time job at a local store or office, then don't despair. There are plenty of ways that you can make a little extra cash on the side without having to do much extra work. In fact, you'd be surprised how many things you can do to make your money work for you.

To help you make the most out of any budget, I've put together a quick list of easy ways that you can make money without wasting all of your spare time.

The air’s still warm and the sun’s still bright, so even if you’re not being hit by a heatwave, you’re probably still struggling to cool off and dab away the sweat on your forehead. Well, there’s one way you can keep your house cooler year after year, and that's by choosing the right flooring. Which is why I have teamed up with Amtico to round up the top three ways to keep your home cooler this summer and every summer after! 

Speaking of wood, it’s also an excellent choice in any climate or weather condition – it adapts based on the air around it, especially when properly treated. There are so many types of hardwood that you can easily find one that matches your style or preference – anything from Birch to Bamboo – and it can all be added on top of existing flooring to double up on its durability or heat efficiency.
Houseplants can be an excellent way to fill out space and add some life to a room, but the hardest part can be working out where to put them – having enough space is only the start of your worries. Luckily, I’ve teamed up with Olive Grove to put together this quick guide to give you a few more things to think about, just in case.

Check The Heat
Some plants prefer heat, some prefer cold, and some don’t really care as long as they’re properly fed. This might not seem like a problem at first, but your house design could work against you – a room with plenty of windows probably shouldn’t contain plants that can’t handle constant heat and light, whereas an attic or basement with no natural light shouldn’t usually have any regular plants whatsoever.

Making Easy Money Through ETFs

With so many people struggling to find work nowadays, with there being too many people, not enough jobs, businesses going into liquidation/administration and some of our favourite high street stores going in a world where there’s too much competition, it’s easy to see why so many people are looking for online and alternative work to work from home.

From surveys to tutoring, virtual assistant jobs to writing, mystery shopping to proofreading, there is so much to do, and one search of working from home will bring in thousands of results, but many are too good to be true, or want you to join the debatable world of M2M - something I personally would avoid like the plague.
