Would you like to get some extra cash for Christmas?
I've just started using an app called Shoppix and I'm loving it so far!
You simply take a picture of your receipts to collect tokens.
You can then exchange your tokens to claim rewards from your favourite retailers.
Personally, I'm going to exchange the tokens for cash into my Paypal account. There's also Amazon, iTunes and Love2Shop vouchers available.

You can find out more about the app here - https://www.shoppixapp.com

If you do decide to start using it then if you use my referral code BVNRMNS5 when you first sign up you've got the chance to get an extra 200 tokens.

Would you use an app like this?

I've just read a really interesting chapter in my book about our relationships with others.

British anthropologist Robin Dunbar proved a theory that when social groups get too large they break up. In short large groups are hard to maintain.

Dunbar calculated the size of social groups that humans could cope with. His number was 150. This is now known as Dunbar's number.

After further research, he discovered that we tend to have 5 people who are closest to us. That number is often immediate family and our partner.

The next group contains 15 people, then 50, then 150.
It's the first 15 people that help to make us feel happy and fulfilled in life.

If you increase the quality of those relationships, meaning your 15, that will have a direct effect on your overall wellbeing.

My question to you is 'Do you know who your 15 are?'
