Here’s some stuff I think is great and worth shouting about!

This page is in two sections, with an affiliate links section first, then a further list of awesome things/people/projects after that.

The links in this section have affiliate links or a partner programme I’m part of. About that:

* None of my links are for amazon

* They are only for things I have chosen carefully.

* Affiliate links don’t pay much per purchase (a few pennies, eventually, but every little helps!): so just look at what interests you.

Thank you, if you choose to purchase through these links. I hope you will find something that you like.

These are in reverse alphabetical order.

* Utility Warehouse: a unique multi-service company offering the cheapest energy on the UK market, 100% renewable electricity, good deals on internet, mobile sims/handsets, and low cost insurance. They also offer ways to further reduce your bills, including a cashback card and referalls. UW have a partner programme that lets people earn good money by helping others, and they plant a tree in their woodland each time a new customer signs up. If you’d like to have a cost comparison or find out more, email me.

* Astrol Light: Bringing the beauty of the moon and stars into your home, for relaxation, atmosphere and ambience. Good for a bit of extra twinkle and sparkle when you most need it.
