EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LISA

A dark green background with white writing, 'everything you need to know about LISA' in bold font with ISA in black
Last week, I opened a Lifetime ISA and I've since received a few DMs asking what it is and who to open one with. Disclaimer, I'm not a financial expert but I know the basics and have been in a branch to ask the relevant questions before opening my LISA and closing my Help-to-buy ISA. So here's everything you need to know about LISA and if you're looking to open an account and want to know which provider is best for you, head to Martin Lewis.

And another thing, you can hold both HTB ISA and Lisa at the same time but you can only use the bonus from one to buy a house with. If you're buying the property with someone else who is using the schemes, you can combine your bonus' and savings.

LADIES, LET ME TEACH YOU HOW TO 'SHOOT YOUR SHOT'

A collage of 9 selfies in black and white
Earlier today, a friend of mine sent me a tweet by one of the VICE writers looking for people to share their successful or unsuccessful stories from 'shooting their shot' on public transport. Now, if you follow me on Twitter then you will know, that at the end of last year while travelling back from London to York, I 'shot my shot' on the train. I had no intention of writing a blog post on my experience but I like to be open with you guys and I feel like this is a safe space to do so, so here goes!

Let me set the scene...

On the 28th December, I was travelling back to York after Christmas, I go to uni there. My original train from Kings Cross was cancelled and an additional was added for the Kings Cross to Edinburgh route.

Don't let my story discourage you, it's 2020, shoot your shot!
