Tried and Tested – Amazon Prime 

Having tried and tested a 30 day Amazon Prime free trial, I thought it would be a good idea to mention what I thought of it.

I originally signed up to take advantage of the fact that I got 30 days free, I signed up initially for the free delivery.

At first when I signed up I was a bit dubious about being tied in and I personally don’t like anything that auto renews.

However if you like Amazon Prime and you let it auto renew you can cancel anytime so now I’ve

I found the benefits of having Amazon Prime far outweighed not having it, with every extra that you get with it.

I watched a lot of the tv shows and films, I found that I got addicted to some of the tv series.

On the down side I found the choice of shows wasn’t on par with Netflix  however the quality was just as good.

However it’s a good alternative to Netflix however you get a lot more as you do get the following benefits;

  • Get unlimited, FREE One-Day Delivery on millions of items
  • Watch over 15,000 movies and TV episodes with unlimited instant streaming
  • Borrow from thousands of titles from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library
  • Secure, unlimited photo storage with anywhere access
  • Listen to over 2 million songs on Prime Music

Overall I was really happy with my Amazon Prime FREE trial and can highly recommend the 30 day FREE trial offer.

Smashed avocado with smoked chilli and garlic

Verdict = Really easy to make, £1.45 for 2 avocado from Lidl, Tiger bread was £1.10 from Sainsbury’s.

All of the other ingredients we had in already, we got 2 slices each and tasted great!

Inexpensive Halloween Decorations

For an inexpensive try carving a couple of regular sized bell peppers, draw a face on the front.

Cut the top off the pepper and remove the inside before carving the face. Then place a tea light inside.

If putting the top of the pepper back on, make a hole in the top so that the tea light doesn’t go out.


inexpensive halloween decorations

Verdict = We got both peppers from Sainsbury’s for 95p, you can get them cheaper elsewhere.

We already had the tea lights so didn’t have to buy any

It was really easy to do however we found that putting a hole in the top of the pepper stopped the tea light going out.

Really cheap and easy and fun decorations to make. Tried and Tested.
