Amazon Prime Day | Today

Today is Amazon Prime Day and I thought I would share the link with you to Amazon Prime in case you wanted to check out any of their amazing deals that they have on offer specifically today.

As you will all know already, Amazon runs discounts all year on their products, which is great for law students who need to purchase books, and it is just great in general for anyone who wants to purchase brand new items with a little bit of a discount.

I was fortunate enough to have Amazon Prime for the last year, which means that I receive free next day delivery and sometimes even free same day delivery, as well as access to all of the Amazon Prime TV and Movies.

Prior to having Amazon Prime I was a frequent Amazon purchaser, and I would regularly buy University books, random law books, DVDs, boxsets, CDs etc.  Delivery is already pretty decent with normal Amazon Delivery and you can obviously choose to pay for Next Day or Special Delivery with individual items anyways for anything urgent.  However, the overall cost of Amazon Prime for the year, isn’t overly expensive and I now regularly grab bits on their for my sisters and family, so the cost is well worth spending.

As previously mentioned this isn’t a sponsored post, and I have not been asked to share any of this with you.  I just thought I would promote a product that I really enjoy using, and has been a benefit to me over the last year.

I do love buying books from bookstores, and wherever possible try to do so, but sometimes that isn’t practical, and sadly there is a shortage of law bookshops in the UK, and carrying bags full of books home isn’t always a great idea.

Click on any of the links above to be taken to the Amazon website where you can check out some of the amazing deals they have on today, as well as access the 30 day free trial.  You can choose to have the 30 day free trial at any time of the year, so maybe check it out when you plan to order your university textbooks!

Sourced Box : Referral Code

So if you have checked out my Snapchat or Instagram recently you will know that I purchased a SourcedBox.  I do love healthy food and also chocolate etc.  I thought by purchasing a SourcedBox I would be able to find some other healthy snacks to try.   Get the referral link to receive 15% off your first order below.

I had read some great reviews on SourcedBox so thought I would give it a go, you can either purchase a one-off month, or have a subscription.  You can cancel the subscription at any time, so long as you do it before the next shipment date as per the website terms.

This isn’t a sponsored post, just to make that clear.  I thought I would just share the referral code with you, incase you wanted to check them out.  They would make a great addition to your month, with new snacks.  Great for students, lawyers, legal professionals, academics etc.

Check out the healthy snacks in #SourcedBox & get 15% off of your first box via my referral link!

I really enjoyed the products that arrived, especially as I was worried I wouldn’t try half of it, but I seemed to have a lucky hit with the July box.  There was only one thing that I won’t be trying and that was the Beetroot and Horseradish crisp things.

Make sure you check out SourcedBox if it is the sort of thing you would like to try.

Rather than explain and list all of the prices and subscriptions I thought I would share a graphic from their website.

Amazon Prime Day – 12th July 2016

I am super excited for Amazon Prime Day.  As many of you may know I do love Amazon whether I am buying university books, DVDs (yes I do love watching a box set the traditional way) or anything my sisters or family need.

I have been fortunate enough to have Amazon Prime for the last year and it is great having next day delivery – for any of you that do use Amazon you will know that normal delivery is really good anyways.

Amazon Prime Day

This isn’t a sponsored and I have not been asked to say anything about Amazon, but they do have some great deals on brand new products, even law textbooks and crime TV dramas (I always buy everything brand new) and there is a never a problem.

If you have been watching TV over the last few weeks you will know that Amazon Prime Day is taking place next week, on the 12th July 2016, there are going to be some amazing deals and discounts and it is worth checking out.

Plus Amazon Prime does let you have a 30 day free trial, just remember to cancel before the time frame runs out.

Check out any of the links above to access Amazon Prime and if you do want the 30 day free trial do check it out, it might be handy for ordering university textbooks etc.  Especially if you happen to want to make a head start on any reading you need to do or just want to be super organised (subject to your University issuing you reading lists already!).

The 30 day trial is year round, so you could always start in September if you prefer.

Rumour has it that their Amazon Prime Day is going to be amazing, with some great discounts and I will definitely be checking them out.  Do make sure you check it out on the 12th July.

Virtual Law Work Experience Programme – email

There has been a lot of interest in my Virtual Law Work Experience Programme which I am so excited about.  I sent around an email this week which you can check out here.

Don’t forget that the programme runs all year and there may be offers going up throughout the year with money off codes.

Whilst you are on my website or newsletter make sure you subscribe to my weekly newsletter, that way you can stay up to date on all the blog posts I share as well as events I will be running, and some other exciting bits and pieces I have planned for this year.

Plus I will be sharing discount codes for the work experience programme on there too!

As you are aware I have created the Virtual Law Work Experience Programme to cover the whole of the United States (rather than just New York which is where I undertook mine with the company that no longer exists).  I am hoping to expand this programme and potentially branch out to other countries as the year goes on.

Part of the programme enables you to write some content for law firms all over the United States on various legal topics, benefitting them but also giving you exposure to new areas of law, developing your research and writing skills as well as making some great connections.

Don’t forget that you can email me if you have any questions on the programme, the types of work you would be doing, a more in-depth breakdown of the skills you will be gaining or developing or any other questions you have.

I had the best time when I undertook the programme a few years ago, and because I gained so much from doing it, plus I always get asked about it in interviews, so when I realised the company I was telling you to go and look at didn’t exist anymore, I created my own programme.

Where in the world you would like to undertake some work experience from (from the comfort of your own home)?


Update – June 2016

This weekend I decided to sit and write my June update for you all.  So much has happened over the last 6 months, and even the last month and I wanted to share as much as I could of that with you.

I have been travelling a lot, speaking at events for lawyers and law students on social media and blogging, and the benefits of these.  I have been running lots of training sessions on these topics as well, as well as writing lots of content for law firms, whether that is blog content or website content.

The last few months I have also been writing social media strategies, content strategies and also speaking on panels.  As well as managing a couple of social media platforms.

I have also been helping lawyers, law firms and law students with their LinkedIn profiles and company pages.  I have been creating reports containing ways to improve your engagement as an individual or company.  I have been rewriting summaries, and also company pages, and showcase pages.  I absolutely love helping lawyers with improving their LinkedIn pages both individually and their company profiles.  LinkedIn is a great resource for sharing news and updates, making connections, potentially finding jobs, and lots more!

Read my full update here.

I have also travelled a lot as mentioned above and there will be the odd blog post going out about my travels, such as must sees in various locations, and some of my business travel tips.  Don’t worry though, this blog won’t be turning into too much of a lifestyle blog, just sharing the odd insight in between my law related posts.   Places I have been to for work so far this year: The Hague, Berlin and Barcelona.  Places I am going to this year: Hong Kong, Melbourne, Boston and Washington DC.

By way of a random update can you believe that it is exactly a year ago since I spent 3 weeks exploring the west coast of America.  I had an amazing time and will try and reshare some links to posts and photos over the coming weeks, especially the amazing law related things I got up to, such as The California Women’s Law Center – Pursuit of Justice Awards, Alcatraz, visiting Santa Barbara Courthouse to name a few.

Don’t forget to hit the subscribe button so that you never miss a newsletter or important update.  I have a big update coming this week which I am extremely excited to share with you all.

Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about the work I do.. how I run the sessions? locations? Costs?
