Every so often, Memebox (check my first review here for introduction to Memebox, the non subscription themed Korean beauty boxes) will release codes, deals and rewards to help fans get their favourite boxes without paying the full price. Today they've released a couple of new Referral Only Deals, and I thought, instead of cluttering my top banner up, I'll list all the deals and discounts here instead.

This page will be frequently updated.

Happy shopping and trying out Asian beauty that most people who has tried are raving about!

Combine Discounts:
- Stack Memebox and my affiliate discounts together!

For example:
With $3 Meme points from a new account, plus $5 off code on any order, you can easily save at least $8 off your first order! If you spend over $100 using my affiliate links, you'll get another $5 off automatically, saving a total of $13 off your order!

Note that you can stack Meme points, automatic affiliate discounts and 1 code together, but you cannot stack the $5 off code together with a, for example, MEMEBUNDLE3 code.

VIP Offers

As I'm a Memebox VIP, I get to see what's new approx 10 hours before the general public does. These boxes will also be cheaper than the non VIP versions. I will post these through Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (new boxes launch days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays), which will save you even more money (typically $2 to $3 off each box), so you never really have to pay full price for the Memeboxes!

Referral Only Deals
- Will update this as soon as the new ones come in

Secret Deals 

Every so often Memebox will release secret deals which are hard to find if you don't know where to look. Instead of Meme Points, these boxes come with an additional full size product!

Current deal - Random selection of Royal Beauty Paint Mousse Lip Lacquer

when you buy one of the following box set:

The Video Effect - Nigel Camp

online video for business, vlogging guide, successful video marketing
New Cover
Having blogged for 3 years (Oh My God I think I missed my Blogaversary which was in September!), I barely did any videos that involves me talking in the clip, let alone being filmed in it as well. To me, it's a scary experience (what if I look bad/ stutter/ "erm" a lot/ sound funny/ etc etc), even though I'm actually just talking to a camera.

However, I know vlogging is really the way to go if I want to push my blog further. Have you seen the number of views on a good YouTube video? They can reach over hundreds of thousands of views within weeks, and if I can create a successful video clip, it can provide another dimension for my reviews and posts too.

online video for business, vlogging guide, successful video marketing
1st edition, signed by Nigel Camp himself too!
Note: This isn't the copy you will be buying. Please see below for the latest edition
Last year, I met a really nice guy called Nigel Camp at BritMum Live! 2013 (and this year too). He was a speaker for the video sessions, and I must say that they were an eye opener. Within the hour long sessions, I understood why a successful vlogger always have enough lights around them (without the big umbrella type reflector and giant floor lights!), good camera angle and sitting/ camera position, plus clean background. It's all down to good research and well planning before taking that video (with your Smartphone!).

Obviously I was one of the lucky bloggers who got to watch him demonstrate live, but he's also released a book called The Video Effect in 2013, and has recently launched its latest edition as well that you can buy from Amazon, or have it on Kindle. If you have a business that requires marketing (which business doesn't?) and you'd like to know more about video marketing and why it's an efficient way to help your business, this is the book for you.

The Video Effect by Nigel Camp (£10.00 Paperback or £4.42 Kindle version) is a user friendly, easy to read but not lacking professionalism guide to effectively market your business through online videos.

It explains why online videos are more and more important as a successful marketing tool, and how it works with social media (which is a very important key to a successful business including blogging nowadays). It also provides advice on how to choose your video equipment for different budgets and how to choose your video editing software as well.

I like it that, even though Nigel is a professional himself (he's the person behind, he covers different budget range for his recommendations to suit different business plans, so you won't just see him recommending the top of the range equipments and softwares.

His book also covers how online video can help with a business' SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), how to increase exposure for your video, the need to connect your video with your website/ blog, how to film a successful video and learn advertising techniques used by advertising companies.

His book is very useful to us bloggers, as a blog is only small, and we need to do quite a fair bit of work to get our blog seen by many. A lot of the time, professionals like to recommend expensive, over the top equipments and filming environment that we simply can't afford/ don't have. With Nigel's advice, I know that I can film a good enough video with my camera's HD video function, or even my phone's if I'm out and about, and there are a lot of free apps/ software for post-editing too.

I've also learned how to plan the filming and maximise exposure after the video has been uploaded. After all that hard work, you want it to be seen by as many people as possible of course.

I just have to pick up the courage to vlog!

Don't forget you can get Nigel's book on Amazon/ Amazon UK and download it to your Kindle too.

Abby's New Bedroom

rainbow colour children bedroom, children bedroom decoration, interior design

I think it's safe to officially announce that we are in the process of moving house. With 2 growing children, there just isn't enough space in our 2 bedroom house anymore.

When we were looking around at show homes, we took note of a lot of decoration and design ideas of how we wanted our future home look like. Abby has taken a great interest in one of the girly bedroom as it is decorated with all the colours of the rainbow, and she said that instead of having one colour, she wanted them all.

I really liked that room too so I had a look around the Internet, and found a lot of items that will fit to her theme, which is rainbow colour, flower and butterfly.

I decided that the furniture should remain white to balance the colour chaos. Abby loves sparkly things as well, so I thought that Next's Ella set will work great in her room as it comes with crystal-like drawer knobs. The other items on the list are:

multi-colour Gypsie Chandelier
multi-colour Stripy Wallpaper
3D Butterfly Stickers
purple Flower Bedding
green Flower Rug
light pink Crystal Side Lamp

I think everything fits perfectly together apart from the pumpkin carriage lamp in the picture. It's really really cute but I'm not 100% sure about it. Otherwise I think that this will be the prettiest and most interesting room in our house! I can't wait to put it together!
