Send Money Overseas with Paysend

*Sponsored by Paysend, use offer code STELLA for one free transfer.

I remember growing up in Nigeria and how difficult it was to send and receive money from country to country. We had to rely on middlemen and reference codes and numbers to get money across and from loved ones. It took a lot of time and multiple phone calls to get this done. I am glad this is no longer the case. It is now so simple to send and receive money abroad thanks to companies like Paysend. For those who have never heard of Paysend, it is a money transfer platform that allows you to send funds from card to card, or from bank account to bank account to over 70 countries. Headquartered in the UK, Paysend is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Paysend has a global 24/7 online support so help is always available.

Send Money Overseas with Paysend

Here is how my experience was with sending money to Nigeria with Paysend and why you should use this money transfer service –

It is secure

Some days ago, I decided to send money to Nigeria through Paysend. The whole process took me a few minutes and it was seamless. The first thing I did was to set up an account on the Paysend website with my details. Once that was done and my email address was verified, I could start sending money. To sign in, all you need to do is to type in your mobile phone number. Once that is done, you get a text with a security code to sign in. I love the sign in process as the security code bit gives me an extra piece of mind. The process feels a lot safer than just a regular password.

 

The rates are good

I sent money to Nigeria from my bank account to another bank account so there were no additional fees. However, if you are sending to a bank card, the fee is a flat £1, €1.50 or $2 . The process was very straightforward. All I had to do was type in the recipient bank details and the money was sent. The exchange rate was good as well. I compared it with other websites, and the rate I got from Paysend was the highest so their rates are quite competitive.

 

It is easy to use

Paysend is such an amazing money transfer service. I am glad it is now available for when I need to send money abroad. The fact that I can send money on their website or Paysend App on my iPhone makes it super convenient. This is one money transfer service I can see myself using over and over again. Paysend makes sending money as easy as ordering takeaway! The platform definitely takes the stress out of sending money to family and friends in Nigeria and beyond.

Product Review – Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment

*Affiliate link.

I used this Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment for Itchy and Irritated Skin on the kiddies when they had chickenpox in the summer. The chickenpox was severe for my daughter and it was a horrible experience. I remember browsing the web endlessly, looking for a product that would help relieve the discomfort. In my search, I found this Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment.

For those who have never heard of this product, here is a brief product description from the brand –

Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment relieves dry, itchy, and irritated skin with 100 percent natural colloidal oatmeal. This dermatologist- recommended treatment helps temporarily protect and relieve itch and irritation due to poison ivy/oak/sumac, rashes, insect bites, and eczema. Professionally recommended to temporarily help relieve itchy, irritated, dry skin. When dispersed in water, this fragrance-free colloidal oatmeal powder forms a soothing milky bath that works as a natural cleanser, provides temporary skin protection, and relieves irritation and itching.

We used this Aveeno Bath Treatment a few times. I decided to stop using it because I didn’t want to mess around anymore with the chickenpox spots. Here are the pros and cons I found when I did use the product.

PROS
  1. I like the fact that the products comes in 8 individual sachets. The packaging made it easier to use and store.
  2. This product is fragrance free.
  3. It did provide some relief. My daughter’s chickenpox was a lot more severe than my son’s, and she found this oatmeal treatment really soothing.
  4. It is quite affordable at £11.23 on Amazon.

CONS
  1. The product didn’t dissolve in water quickly. I had to use my hands to break the large blops in the bath.
  2. It does leave a messy bath tub as should be expected. A bit of cleaning is required once the bath water is drained.

 

Overall, I like the product but I cannot see myself buying it again. It works but there are more effective products to use, and these products are easier to use as well, which is why I won’t be buying this again. However, if you are struggling with skin issues like eczema, chickenpox, hives, prickly heat and others, you may want to try this Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment. You can shop this product via the Amazon link below.

 

Benefits of Decluttering

I watched Marie Kondo’s Netflix show earlier this year and it taught me a lot of things. I found her decluttering strategy very convincing and she inspired me to carry on living a clutter-free life. Clutter does my head in. I like open spaces and I like my home free of clutter. Which is why I am forever decluttering and sending preloved items to other homes. I feel better when I give and if it isn’t bringing me joy then there is no need for it in my space.

Many people don’t like decluttering as they feel they will always have a need for their items, even though they haven’t touched it in years. Others just like the whole idea of having things everywhere. It makes them feel like they own things.

Clutter does no good regardless of the idea behind it. Now I am not saying you should buy stuff only to get rid of them shortly after. What I am saying is holding on to items you don’t need won’t help you mentally or physically. There are so many benefits of decluttering, here are a few –

 

Having regularly decluttering sessions keeps your space clutter-free

The most obvious benefit is that it keeps your living space free of clutter. It opens up spaces you never knew you had and that alone is amazing.

 

It stops you from wasting money on items you don’t need

Having regular decluttering sessions will stop you from wasting money on items you have no use for. When you declutter your home, you have the opportunity to take a good look at what you have, which allows you decide on items you need and items you don’t need. That way you don’t make the mistake of repeating purchases you don’t need.

 

Decluttering makes space for what to come

When you give away items you don’t need, you make spaces for what you do need, and usually these things come in wonderful ways. Sometimes for you to manifest what you want in your experience, you have to get rid of what you don’t want or what no longer serves you.

It helps you clean better

Once you declutter you will find it a lot easier to clean your spaces better as you would be able to reach them. Getting rid of the junk around you also gets rid of the dirt eventually.

 

I could go and on about the amazing benefits of decluttering. Since I started doing this regularly my life has changed for the better. I will be decluttering again just before Christmas. I have a few bags ready to go to charity and I am looking forward to getting rid of them.

How often do you declutter?
