I’ve recently been invited by Voucher Codes to take part in their new Life Hacks challenge! I’m sure you’ve all gathered by now that I’m quite the bargain hunter and a general all round thrifty being. I love to get a good deal, and I never buy anything without first making sure I’m getting the most for my money. I think this used to be thought of as a bit stingy, but I’ve noticed in recent years, this kind of thing is generally more accepted. There was probably a time when some people wouldn’t step foot in a discount store…

Not a very exciting post, but I know some of you like seeing my freebies! These are all things anyone could apply for and receive just by applying online and filling in your address. I found most of these freebies via websites such as Magic Freebies. They’re only little things.. but who doen’t love getting things in the post! So here’s my ‘thrilling’ freebies… A nice little tube of Vaseline essential moisture lotion. I’ve already reviewed Maybelline FIT me as I bought it before I even sampled it. But it’s my new favourite foundation so I don’t mind a mini…

Hello again! Here is another one of my freebie and competition win posts. I am so sorry if you hate these posts on my blog, but I love sharing my freebies! Although I seem to be winning a lot less these days after sharing all my tips with you all 😉 You may remember in June I won a Kindle Keyboard, which I gifted to my Mum.

As well as being an avid competition enterer, I also like to receive a few freebies now and again. Health and beauty freebies are my favourites, especially perfumes. I find these freebies from all over the internet, and there are even freebie ‘directories’ which list different available freebies. There’s no catch to these, they’re often just providing you with a small product sample to try out, and they hope you will like it and purchase it again in future. It’s a way for companies to promote themselves and create awareness for their brand and products.  These small sample sizes are…

I haven’t had many competition wins lately, but here are the ones I have been lucky enough to win over the last month. They’re all quite small wins but all much appreciated. I also got quite a few postal sample freebies though! Which are always nice to receive 🙂  I won this pretty snazzy pineapple sweater jumper from Qcumber’s Twitter page. Check them out, they sell a range of wacky, fruity jumpers! They even have one with bananas on (oo-er)! It’s super-soft and fleecy on the inside, I look forward to wearing it when this humid weather has gone. All…
