Blogger/free-lance writer

So I am combining days 6 and 7, WORKSPACE & ROUTINE Since having my little boy, I don't have a specific work room at the moment. So I tend to work all over the place ( I have boxes of work in every room at the moment!!), but most often you will find me here at my Kitchen table! As to routine, I am very much a working Mum so at the moment my working day consists of nap times (if, fingers crossed he has one!) and evenings! . . . #weddingstationer #weddingstationery #weddinginvitations #bespokewedding #southwest #wedding #bristolbride #bathbride #bristolwedding #smallbiz #girlboss #ukwedding #weddingsupplier #creativelifehappylife #cornerofmyhome #workingfromhome #onthetable #workingmum #stationerydesigner #marchmeetthemaker #meetthemaker #ukwscmtm #daffodils #homeoffice

Mystery Shopper

A mystery shopper is someone who is paid to shop at various companies and act like a regular customer and report back on their experience. This allows stores to improve their shop, customer service and overall shopper experience! Many companies will even offer to reimburse you for an item purchased in order to get the full experience. You get to shop for free while making money, who wouldn't want to do that!


If you have excelled in a subject in the past, then become a tutor! You can help out kids in your area and local schools. There are even an abundance of websites looking for people willing to teach kids English online! Not only are you giving back and helping out those who are trying to learn, but you are also making extra money on top of your yearly income!
