Buying a car at auction from BPI Auctions

Buying a car at auction from BPI Auctions

Previously on the blog, I’ve written about the pros and cons of buying cars new, nearly new or used. When you’re buying a car used or nearly new, as well as checking out the side of main roads in your local area, you can also look online.

Of course, popular choices are sites such as Gumtree, eBay and Autotrader. However, there are auction sites other than eBay. In fact, while they’re still a little less known, they could be a cheaper and better choice for you! One of these sites is BPI Auctions. View Post

5 car checks you NEED to do before your next family trip

There is always so much to do when you’re planning a family trip. Even just planning where to go can take quite some thought when you have children in tow! However, before you’re going on a long journey anywhere, it’s essential that you do some car checks to ensure a smooth journey and your safety.

10 things I love about my car

My car isn’t a Lamborghini, it isn’t my dream Land Rover Defender 110, or a beautiful classic Mini with sparkling chrome. I’m not sure whether it would be anyone’s dream car, in fact, and it isn’t perfect. It has a few little dents scattered here and there and I need to touch up some of the paintwork. However, I am very fond of my little Toyota Yaris.  View Post

Why I still play Pokemon Go a year on

Do people still even play Pokemon Go?” I saw written about a million times underneath posts on social media celebrating a year of Pokemon Go last week. Unless you were hiding under a rock somewhere this time last year, you’ll probably remember the craze of Pokemon Go within the first few weeks of its release. Everyone and their mums (literally) were outside in the sunshine with their phones, frantically swiping at their screens to catch pixel creatures.

Today marks a year since I downloaded the app to my phone, through a site based in Hong Kong as it hadn’t officially been released in the UK. Unlike most people who played it for a couple of months as part of the craze, I’m still playing it a year on. But why? View Post

Sunday Review: Pacif-i, the smart connected pacifier

Sunday Review: Pacif-i, the smart connected pacifier

I’m someone who has always had an interest in new developments in technology. When I was pregnant, I heard about Pacif-i, a smart dummy/pacifier that links to your smartphone via bluetooth. It tells you your child’s temperature and can track medication. With a £40 price tag I wasn’t sure about purchasing one. However, there are times that it is VERY handy to have one!  View Post
