Economical drivers often dream of luxury cars. Luxury usually means high sticker price and not so great gas mileage.

Do You Have Secret Savings?

Do you have secret savings that you haven’t told your partner about? If you do, you’re not alone. Over 41% of people in a recent study admitted to having secret savings their partners have no idea about. The main reasoning for having their own savings hid away is because they like to be independent. However, a surprising number of people suggested they keep a separate hidden savings account because their partner is terrible at saving. While I’m not here to comment on people’s motivations for savings or whether they should be keeping large sums of money secret from their partner, it’s interesting to see many people are putting money away for a rainy day. Over 25% of those people studied are putting money away for a holiday, which is one of my favourite reasons to save. But what other motivations might people have for saving, especially away from their partners…

Want to Market to my Generation? You’ll Need to Work Hard

Many of my readers are millennials, which is why I wanted to talk to you guys about an interesting video I just watched. 4imprint recently released a video about marketing to millennials, and there were some key takeaways that I thought were super interesting. Our dependence on technology and love of social media has meant that brands need to work harder than ever to engage with us. We grew up in a time where we could easily research any brand we wanted, and then see what others were saying about that brand on social media channels. That means that brands can no longer rely on marketing to us the way that they marketed to our parents. If you’re anything like me, you probably follow a few brands on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. But you probably don’t follow boring brands that are only releasing advertising content or continually talking about their…

Why you should move to LA

You guys may have seen the #ZipCodePride hashtag floating around recently, and today I thought I would talk about why LA is such a great place to live, and why you should consider making the move. There are so many reasons why living in LA is amazing. Of course, the weather has to be one of them. You never need to worry about shovelling snow or scraping ice off your car when you live in LA, and it’s easy to forget that most of the rest of the world has four seasons. If you like the outdoors, LA is a great place for you. I personally love being so close to the beach, but you could easily spend the morning on the beach and then ski in the mountains in the same day. And if you own a business, address validation is super easy. LA is incredibly diverse, and is…

Saving money can be challenging for many people. After all, we live in a time where instant gratification is the norm, and it’s all about keeping up with our neighbours. Unfortunately, the chances of many millennials owning the own home continue to decrease, and a large percentage of this generation will be renting for life. Many studies have also shown that most people are living pay check to pay check. If you lost your job tomorrow, how many months would you be able to live on your savings for? One of the biggest reasons to save is simply to put money away in the event of an emergency. But I get it- saving is hard when there are so many advertisements in your face all day, screaming out for you to buy certain things.

Why you should take a cottage holiday in the UK this year

If you haven’t yet taken a cottage holiday, you’ve been missing out, these relaxing, short breaks have become all the rage in the UK, and they’re a great way to get all the benefits of a holiday without all the stress of travelling overseas. We’re all used to taking holidays in hotels in the city, but we often forget that it’s possible to start our holiday within just a few hours of driving into the country.

Many of the destinations where you take a cottage holiday are also packed with fun things for the whole family to…
