5 THINGS I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT


Do you ever wonder about the things you couldn't live without on a day to day basis? Everyone has a different list of essentials, if you asked 5 people you would get a variety of answers ranging from a glass of wine in the evening to a Starbucks coffee on the way to work. These aren't essentially necessary but they are nice to have in our lives and help you through every day life.

Apart from the necessary essentials like food, a roof over my head and my family here are 5 things I can't live without:

The first thing I do when I wake up every morning is check my phone, reply to emails, scroll through Instagram and Facebook numerous times a day. I also use my phone every single day for taking photos, and chatting to friends, it's basically my lifeline and definitely an essential for any blogger. What did we ever do before smart phones hey? 

The second is probably my laptop, if I'm not sleeping, or looking after the kids I'm on my laptop. As soon as the kids are asleep, I'm on the laptop. Whether that be blogging, on Facebook, editing photos or online shopping I definitely couldn't live without the internet and my laptop. 

Another essential for me would have to be Dr Pepper. Not a day goes by where I don't indulge in a cold can of Dr Pepper out of the fridge. Although I did take part in a spending ban not long ago and actually managed a week without having any as much as it was complete utter torture for me so I don't think I could give it up completely even if I have cut down slightly which I am proud about. 

Chinese takeaway is a downfall of mine. I could easily eat it every day of the week and not get sick of it. Even though I usually only have it once or twice a week these days there have been many weeks where I would eat around 4-5 takeouts! This is definitely an expensive habit and one which I am glad I've cut down on. I just don't think I could stop having my weekly takeaways! 

Lastly I don't think I could live without my Yankee Candles. I have one in every room and love burning them every day. I probably have around 30 and thats not including all of the smaller ones. There are just so many scents it can easily become an addictive obsession to have. 

British Gas have created a video titled "What five things couldn't you live without?" which you can watch below to get people thinking about the things they couldn't live without in their lives and how much the real essentials like energy in the home cost in relation to those everyday essentials. As we can't live without our energy in the home the video really does make you think about your energy costs and how much you waste on those everyday luxury essentials. I was surprised to learn that for a three bedroomed house our daily amount of energy used is roughly £3.32 as I thought it would have been far more. 


For tips on how to conserve energy in the home and how to save money check out the British Gas' The Source Website as it is a great hub for information.

  19. 'After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealers@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS'

I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online.

Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me.

  26. MARRIAGE RESTORED! My wife pack out of the house with my kids and said she was no longer interested in me anymore. She said all the abusive words and said am not a good husband because I wasn't working, instead I was wasting her time, so i contacted this Strong spell caster RAVIDATT VYAS a week ago after reading Miracles about his spell over the net, I consulted him for a love spell, crying not knowing what to do. He told me that he will cast a love spell for me so my wife will come back to me. After 4 days of casting the spell, my wife called me apologizing and begging me to come home. The tender that i was waiting for was approved and she started telling me that am a good husband that I should forgive her for the bad things she had said. Am thanking RAVIDATT VYAS for the Faith and Trust he showed me. if any body is out there passing through any relationship difficulties should kindly contact him via email: (ravidattvyas522@gmail.com)
