    Ziffit Review

    If you’re a bookworm, and I know many of my readers are, you might be interested in this review. Ziffit is an app I hadn’t heard about until recently but it’s fast becoming one of my favourites. It’s a way to clear out your old books, CDs, DVDs, games etc. and make money at the same time. You can get it from your phone’s app store for free. It’s top left in the picture below.

    Selling Your Sole – The Truth About Selling Shoes To Fetishists

    First off, a disclaimer of sorts. I am a grown woman who knew exactly what I was doing.

One time Kenny and his wife told me a story about what happened when they sold a pair of old shoes. They immediately got a message from…
