Best Ali Express Buys

If you're a frequent reader of my blog then you've probably already read about my fascination with Ali Express! In case you've been living in a hole and don't already know, Ali Express is basically this amazing online marketplace website based in China. You can buy things (almost anything!) for literally pennies which are then delivered to you (usually free!) within a few weeks. I am basically obsessed with ordering 10 things at once and it only comes to a few quid. 

It can be a little bit hit and miss, but 90% of the time I'm pretty thrilled when I open up the little parcel through the letter box with my goodies inside! I've ordered so many bargains from Ali Express over the years (check out my previous buys here) so I thought I'd share with you a few of my most recent purchases/total bargains!

First Time Buyer - My House Buying Process

Buying your first home is pretty scary, and one of the things that made me reluctant to start house hunting is that I thought it was going to be an almost impossible process. I'd heard many horror stories about how difficult finding the perfect home can be, and how the whole mortgage application process can be a nightmare. There's also the risk of things falling through, gazumping, and losing money on all the fees you've paid out to solicitors etc. Scary.

My First Home: The Dining Room

Happy New Year! 2017 was a pretty busy year for me, mostly because I got my own place! Moving out of my parents house for the first time was a big step for me but I'm proud of how well I've managed. If anything, life is much simpler! And quieter.. I love how peaceful my new home is despite it being in a more central location and my parents house was in a sleepy village.
