Car Boot Sale Tips- A Fun Way To Make Money!

Car Boot Sale Tips- A Fun Way To Make Money!

Car boot sales are a fun way to make cash! Don’t expect to make a fortune because it’s where everybody goes for a bargain: 50p-£1 is common for things like videos, books, clothes, toys and garden pots; maybe £3-£5 for small kitchen appliances.

Be prepared to get up extremely early and for a good deal of loading and unloading. We take a folding pasting table, folding chairs, sheets of plastic to spread on the ground (good for displaying clothes), warm jackets, sun hats, an umbrella, food, flask, a float with change and a book or newspaper to keep you occupied when it gets quiet.

It’s great fun if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of markets and you can shop while you’re there.  I think they’re great!

Tips for your Car Boot Sale

1. Put price stickers on  all of your goods.

2. Find your Local Car Boot Sale, ask for the price of stall, Date and time you should arrive.

3. Pack items in smaller cardboard boxes – they are easier to move in and out of the car.

4. Take a table for your goods, such as a paste table

5. Arrive early – ring the organisers to ask what time they suggest.

6. On arrival, unload your table and one box then lock your car while you unpack the box, otherwise people will swarm all over your car, picking up items and confusing you totally.

 7. Dealers come early to make offers. Don’t take them unless you are happy with the price; better to tell them to try again later as you’ve only just started selling.

8. Take lots of change and a container with a lid for money taken. Once you have a few notes, lock these in your car.

9. Take a chair, wet wipes, carrier bags for buyers, sandwiches and a drink.

10. Best of all, persuade a friend to share the stall as this halves the cost and ensures you get a toilet break!

Flattering Sex Positions And Tips For Fat Days! (We All Have Them)

Flattering Sex Positions And Tips For Fat Days! (We All Have Them)

Fat Days, unfortunately we all have them whether we’re a size 6 or 26!, but just because you’re  bloated or feeling self-conscious or you haven’t attended the gym enough this week,  doesn’t mean there has to be a no-sex rule!

There’s nothing that’s more of a mood-killer than being paranoid and struggling around trying to cover up your stomach or bickering about not having the lights on.

The first step to great sex is embracing your body and making use of it. If your partner is in bed with you, his main concern is going to be having sex with the beautiful woman in front of him!!

Here are a few positions to help you to fight the flab and feel great, leaving you to focus on having fun and not worrying about what you look like.

missionary

Missionary: Gravity is your friend in this case! Your stomach will automatically look flatter.

Tip:Make yourself look sexier by stretching your arms up over your head and grabbing onto the bedpost or by placing them flat on the wall behind the bed. It will make your stomach look flatter and your boobs perkier!

What is he seeing: He cannot even see your stomach if he is on top of you stomach-stomach and only a glimpse if he is kneeling a bit! He will get a good glimpse of your breasts, but will most likely be  looking into your eyes which makes for a very intimate time!

spooningDoggy Style: Rear entry positions are the most flattering, especially if your stomach is your least favourite part of yourself.

Tip: Arch your back a little and push your bum high in his direction, giving you a sexy feminine curve which he will find tantalizingly attractive! 

What he is seeing: He will only be able to see your bum, your thighs and your back. You could place  his hands on your hips to hold you steady while he thrusts, and you’ve also solved the wandering hands problem.

doggy style

Spooning: Spooning is among the best  positions to hide your stomach, your boobs and the front of your body

Tip: Lift your bum to allow him to penetrate, and tighten your thighs for maximum friction while his hands reach around to stimulate your clitoris. 

What he is seeing: The front of your body is hidden, so he will only be able to see you from behind, and since his front will be to your back that wont be much! Make plenty of satisfied moans and groans and perhaps stick on a porn DVD to give you something to look at and create maximum arousal.

Start your Own Business, Ideas And Templates, Boost Your Income WIth No Experience And Little Cash

Since I was in Secondary School I always knew I would be self-employed, I just didn’t realise how much passion I would have about business. I have my ups and downs but have been pleased with what I have achieved so far against all odds, I didn’t finish school, left with no GCSE’s have had no higher education since apart from a Life Coaching Course which I decided not to take further.

But we all have to make a living somehow and I want to share a few easy ways to boost your income!

In the past I have tried a few different businesses including market trading, selling different items and even winning free trading space, NMTF membership & invited to parties at the houses of parliament through being shortlisted from thousands in a national competition! I also owned a very successful Domestic Cleaning Business which I recently sold on because I felt the time was right and I was ready to embark on an exciting new venture!

Throughout the years I have had many ideas, and done a lot of research and planning mainly because of my interest in how businesses work but I have also helped friends and family members set the wheels in motion for their new businesses. I’m a bit of a of a jack of all trades some might say.

So over the next few weeks I have decided to share a couple of ideas, the research I have done and kept and templates to help people set up their own business and get on the right track.

If you’re considering setting up a new business, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for so watch this space!

I’m Bringing Back Hair Ribbons!

I’m Bringing Back Hair Ribbons!

Today is the first day of spring!  Yayy..

…but  let’s be honest, the weather is miserable and it is looking like we are more likely to have a white Easter rather than Christmas this year!

So it looks like my spring wardrobe will have to wait a few extra weeks this year,  however I have decided to brighten up my style and  bring back hair ribbons!  I am loving all types of ribbons, you can use simple small ribbons, to bright scarf style ribbons.

Here are a few pictures I found below to give you an idea of how to make this sweet & innocent style statement work.

Middlesbrough (Smoggie) Translation

Middlesbrough (Smoggie) Translation

As I am from Middlesbrough and live in Newcastle, I often get people misunderstanding the meanings of my words, even my daughter (who has lived here most of her life) and I have a language barrier sometimes, which also results in her teasing me and mocking my words!

So I have decided to put together a ‘Smoggie Translator’ to prevent any further misunderstanding between myself and my friends, Please do join in and I will add to the list as I think of more 🙂

Firstly here’s a bit about my home town; Middlesbrough is town in the North East of England, situated on the river Tees, which is also about the 13th largest town in Britain.

Home of the ‘Smoggie’ A person originating from Teesside, so-called originally from the smoke from the Dorman Long, and other industrial works on the Tees (knocked down years ago and where the Riverside Stadium is) Shortened from original nickname of “Smog monster.”

Locals call both the town and the football team (Middlesbrough FC) “Boro”, while outsiders misspell the town’s name as MiddlesbOrough.

There is a distinctive Teesside accent, distinguishable from the Geordie (People of Newcastle) or Mackem (People of Sunderland) accent. Just to clarify there is 40 miles separating Geordies and Smoggies with Mackem’s 20 minutes each way in between.

Some of the words found in this dictionary did not originate in Middlesbrough and can be heard in different dialects, also some words/meanings are found in the regular dictionary and some have been changed through generations, but they have now become a main part of the Teesside dialect due to frequent use and Smoggies putting their own spin on them.

To give you an idea of the comparison to me and my daughter (Who was brought up in Newcastle) and to show the reason I created this Translator/ Dictionary here is a short clip I took a couple of weeks ago
