Money On The Side {23RD-29TH October 2017}

It’s time for week 10 of  my money on the side series where I share with you all the ways I have made money on the side and brought in little treats for my family. As well as it being half-term it’s also been super busy on the blog front again. I love being so busy but it’s certainly a balancing act to keep everything going at once.

Surveys and competitions are still on the back burner but I have managed to sneak a few entries in every day. I’m determined to win something spectacular before the year is out.

Some important things to note before I begin.

All earnings from income streams including blogging, surveys, focus groups etc must be declared for tax purposes. I recommend using a spreadsheet to keep track it makes completing your tax return a lot easier.

In the UK prizes are not taxable. 

For freebies I will try to include links where I can, lots are time sensitive offers so may have expired by the time I post. 


£100 blogging income.

£4 Pinecone Research surveys.

£25 Market Research.


The prize I won from the Carlsberg Export instant win competition arrived. It’s almost too nice to use as a bottle opener.


I don’t really apply for a lot of free samples nowadays but I do love a good beauty freebie. I think I saw this Lancome Genifique offer on the LatestFreeStuff website.

Blog Reviews 

This adorable Portmeirion Peppa Pig 3 piece London set arrived for Jake to review. We also have a set to give away to a lucky reader so watch out for that coming soon.

I’m reviewing these kitchen products from Vremi and I also have a set to give away.
