Primark Holiday Clothing Haul Part 1

Last week I headed to Primark to have a browse at the summer items that have started to come into store. I did not expect to be able to pick so much holiday stuff up already for our Florida break but I came away with quite a hefty haul. If you've got a summer holiday planned it's definitely worth checking out stores already because by the time June/July rolls around all the autumn items will be coming back. I thought it'd be good to share the things I picked up so you can get a feel for what's currently in Primark.

Paying upfront vs Paying monthly

Saving money on monthly bills
In my making the switch post, I briefly touched on paying for bills/insurance etc up front vs paying monthly. I'm aware that not everyone is in a position to pay for things upfront but it's what works best for us with certain bills. We prefer to take a hit one month then not have to worry about it for another year. Also if you can pay up front you usually end up saving more money. I know it seems unfair but when you add up the monthly costs they usually total more than paying up front.

The Book Shelves: Harry Potter Part 1

Harry Potter Book Collection
 Josh and I love collecting nice books, before we lived together we always used to joke that we'd bought another 'shelf book' when we picked up display-worthy books. When we did finally move in together it was a challenge to find somewhere to display these beautiful books until finally we settled on a bookcase at the top of the stairs. So that's where our book collection now lives. The shelves can be split into 5 categories, Disney, Harry Potter, The Beatles, Star Wars and magazines/programmes. I thought it would be fun to delve into our book shelves and share our lovely collection of books with you all so today we'll be looking at our Harry Potter (and Fantastic Beasts) book collection with the focus being on factual book, I'll cover my collection of the actual Harry Potter stories in a separate post.

Hello and welcome to the first Happy List of 2018! January was so full of ups and downs and I'm kind of glad to see the back of it but we're only here to talk about the good stuff today and I am pleased to say that the nice parts of the month were pretty great!
