• I'm one of those gals who's always looking to make my life easier. Here are a few of my favourite life hacks :) 

    #1. Charge your phone in aeroplane mode to charge it super fast.

    #2 Also pop your phone on aeroplane mode on the tube to preserve battery from constant network searching. 

    #3 Buy a portable phone charger, just in case! Keep it charged in your bag and you'll be charged up and good to go :) I have the Anker® Astro Compact Portable Charger which I just picked up off Amazon

    #4 When writing an email, leave the recipient field blank until you're ready to send. No more oops sorry amendment emails! 

    #5 When packing, roll your clothes into neat bundles. Not only does it save room in your case, but it also prevents clothes from getting as creased. Less time ironing and more time sunbathing, I say. 

    #6 When your lovely candle come to an end, but the glass holder is so pretty. Just melt the wax in the microwave, discard and pop and new candle in the glass holder. 

    #7 Pegs or fold back stationery clips can keep food fresher for longer by sealing up the bag. No excuse to eat the family size bag of crisis now! 

    #8 When writing an essay or important document, email copies to yourself. You never know when you will lose it or file corruption gets the better of it before a deadline. 

    #9 Wine ice cubes. No time to chill white wine/rose wine and you friends have just turned up. No problem! :) Red wine can also be frozen for cooking - pop one in the pan and voila, no need to open a bottle just to make a mid-week spag bol.

    #10 Another frozen hack. Chop onion, garlic and chilli and pop a bit of each into an ice cube tray. Pop one or two into your cooking - fast, easy and delicious! 


    Do you have a useful life hacks? 

    Lots of love,
