The Secret To Smart Shopping

Whilst I enjoy shopping in stores or online, I enjoy it so much more when I get something back from my spending and I'm not just talking my purchases.

I am talking about the world of cashback and more specifically Quidco

Quidco is a cashback website. It's free to join each year they do take first £5 you earn but after that the rest is yours !

These are the beauty/cosmetic companys that use the Quidco cashback scheme.
AVON (10% Cashback)
Benefit Cosmetics (7 % Cashback)
The Body Shop (12% Cashback)


Dorothy Perkins (5% Cashback)
new look (10% cashback)
french connection
Marks & Spencer (3% Cashback)

Kurt Geiger( 5% Cashback)
moda in pelle (8% Cashback)
OFFICE (10% Cashback)
Schuh (2 Rates for new/sale)

They also have supermarkets listed,mobile phone recyclers,insurances,music,games and many more.

I have been using them since April this year and would highly recommend Quidco.

BBCBS Donation Feature - Love Suzie

As part of the promotion of the BBCBS and the providers of it's donations I have been writing features on the donations.

My first donation feature was on Temporary:Secretary

Today's feature is on Love Suzie.

The wonderful Helen from Lovie Suzie has kindly agreed to become involved in Beauty Bloggers Charity Blog Sale and has made a donation.

For those who don't know about Love Suzie they sell an eclectic mix of vintage and modern handcrafted jewellery,established since 2010.

Love Suzie provide something a little unique for people's jewellery boxes,that aren't mass produced.

Helen of Love Suzie was just fed up with wearing the same jewellery as everyone else & decided she want to do something about it,so Love Suzie was born.

Love Suzie has a nice mix of in house design and pieces sourced from supplies from all over the world.
