Now is the ideal time to buy all your holiday and Christmas gifts online because you will have them at your door well before the holidays and avoid the last-minute rush. No matter who’s on your gifting list there will be the ideal gift for them online, and why wouldn’t you buy online when you can avoid the crowds, get them a unique gift/something they really want, do it without shoes on and stick to your budget by paying less at overseas retailers.

To help you find the best gifts for your loved ones, I’ve compiled the Early-Shoppers Holiday Gift Guide. All these items come from international retailers (who ship to Australia!) so you save a pretty penny against the Australian RRP, but to save even more you should consider getting a Cash Passport Prepaid MasterCard. The Cash Passport helps you keep your gifting budget under control by allowing you to lock in daily FX rates to make the most of your money. If you missed it last week, read why Cash Passport is one of my secret weapons for online shopping. Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
