Tips if you are working from home

Here in the UK, the number of people working from home is rising. As a result of further restrictions, a return to working at the office seems unattainable. Hence, the only solution is to relocate your workspace and finally do what people tell us not to do, mix business and pleasure. What is important to realise is that there are changes that you can make to improve your experience. Here are some that I recommend.

Eat healthily

Dare I say that there can be a benefit to working from home? That is that you have your whole kitchen at your fingertips. As well as having all of your appliances available, you can fill your fridge with fruits to snack on. Take the opportunity to improve your diet. You are no longer confined to the delicacies offered in the staff vending machine (no sarcasm intended!). Try to introduce one of my detox plans into your daily diet, and you will soon reap the benefits. Think of it as creating healthy habits, not restrictions. No more excuses.

Working From Home Exercise

Exercise in between working

As you will undoubtedly be spending more time at home, I don’t recommend working out inside. Instead, exercise should be done outside as much as possible. Spending time outdoors is good for you. The natural sunlight (although we don’t see too much of that here in the UK!) will provide you with essential vitamin D. In addition, staring at a screen for too long can result in a feeling of fatigue. Taking a walk outside will allow your body to reset and will boost your attention span.

You wouldn’t wear your pajamas to the office

Understandably, there is a temptation to wear your loungewear or PJs whilst working from home. The mantra of ‘Dress for the job that you want, not the job you have’ should apply at home as well. Subconsciously, you associate pajamas with relaxing and sleeping. To illustrate my point, you would not wear your pajamas to the office as you are not there to relax. Wearing this to work from home will result in you working slower and being less productive. Instead, get into the right mindset for work, and make the effort to dress as you normally would for the office. Imagine that any day, your manager could call you via video call. How do you want them to see you? Dressed professionally or in your favourite onesie? Impressions count.

Working From Home Dress Impress

Keep in contact – there is more to life than working

In addition to feeling like you are stuck in the house all day, you will most likely miss your coworkers. Social interaction is as important as social distancing. Often, when you work from home, you may feel like a ‘hamster on a wheel’. As humans, we are not designed to live in this way. We need contact with others. Maybe it’s the office gossip that you miss, or simply the feeling of being around other people. But the thing is, your colleagues are only a quick message or Zoom call away. After so much time spent feeling isolated, now is the time to reconnect.

HonestKiss – The best fashion and beauty deals

I am going to tell you all about HonestKiss! It’s a genius website that offers several items from top brands at reduced prices, as well as personalized services. I have tested it in order to make a review for you, and here are my opinions on this new webshop. 

HonestKiss – What is it?

The general concept of the webshop is to allow you to shop both freely without a membership, but also allow you to become a member of the club and get even more exclusive offers. As a member, you’ll have a monthly subscription, and receive gift cards each month. The subscription is non-binding. Each month you’ll receive a gift card code by email, the amount of which corresponds to the value of your subscription. HonestKiss offers great products at a huge discount. And these are really good brands. In addition, when you register for the club you can benefit from a welcome gift box that allows you to discover the products of your choice. 

On the HonestKiss website, you’ll find products within beauty, fashion, makeup, skincare, and accessories (all for both men and women). In addition, you can benefit from personalized services! The club offers several things that are accessible to everyone and that is why it can appeal to a large number of people. As you all know I really enjoy all of these things – and I’ve previously shared a recipe for Oriental wax if that’s something that can interest you.

How does it work?

The advantage of the club is that it is easy to use and allows you to enjoy multiple services at the same time. I’ll explain how to proceed to get started on the HonestKiss adventure, and how to take advantage of the many benefits and services available to you.

To get started, you need to register on the HonestKiss website. Go to the menu to enter your personal information using the small form. Following this, you will receive an email from HonestKiss. This email contains your gift card with a code that will allow you to make your purchases on the site. You will have access to products at reduced prices that you’ll find in the category of exclusive offers. Thanks to this gift card you will be able to do your shopping from home!

Then you’ll be able to choose the items you like and add them to your shopping cart. When you go to validate your purchases, you will find a box reserved for your gift card. In it, you just need to write down your HonestKiss gift card code to get your price reduction.

Finally, your order will be delivered within 7-10 working days. It’s not bad! 

Why choose HonestKiss?

The HonestKiss Club offers many advantages and allows you to save money but still get a hold of great products! You can improve your shopping budget with your gift card. You can also share your gift cards with friends and family. It’s also a good idea to use the gift card for gifts. You can get a great gift that no-one would expect at a price you can actually afford. 

Gift Box by HonestKiss

The Gift Boxes

When you register, you can receive a welcome gift box that allows you to discover the products of your choice. In fact, you receive a gift card code by SMS that you need to activate before you can use it on the website. All information is shown in the SMS, and you just need to follow the steps. Very easy! Once your gift card has been activated, you can redeem it by choosing the welcome package of your choice on the HonestKiss website.

The gift boxes are free (excluding delivery costs) and there is a wide range of boxes to ensure that everyone will find something that’s appealing. The boxes are composed of 5 products that you choose according to your preferences. By subscribing to the Club you also have access to all the products at reduced prices. You can get up to 70% discount on the products in the HonestKiss webshop! Crazy right? 

If you wish to unsubscribe, all you have to do is contact customer service by email to request the termination of your subscription which is non-binding. The customer service is friendly and helpful, and when I reached out to them with a couple of questions they got back to me on the same day. That’s something I really can appreciate. 

The Exclusive products of HonestKiss

On the HonestKiss website, you will find different categories that allow you to find products easily and to navigate without getting lost. The club offers products both for men and women in the following categories: fashion items, accessories, shoes, clothing, jewelry, and even sunglasses. In addition, you’ll find makeup and skincare products on their website. They have a personal trainer service and also a personal stylist. I haven’t tried any of those, but I could imagine using the personal stylist for a special occasion. 

You can get a personal stylist at HonestKiss

Contacting their customer service

As we explained above, the HonestKiss customer service is quick to reply by email. I got informed that they are open from Monday to Friday, and that makes sense to me.  

I have contacted them by email for more information a couple of times actually, and they responded to us very quickly and positively! Their answers are complete and clear. They also helped me with the tracking of my package, so I was not disappointed! 

HonestKiss – Something for you too?

Are you also interested in trying out HonestKiss? I am curious to know if you already have tried the concept… If you have already ordered? If you have tested a gift box, please let me know your thoughts and if you were happy. I always love to hear the experience of others. If you haven’t tried it yet, I’d advise you to check it out.

Start the year well with a detox plan

A detox plan is a great way to start your new year. We may have over-indulged a little too much during the festive period. We may even have a New Year’s resolution to join the gym. One of the healthiest ways that I have found to kickstart a healthier lifestyle or fitness journey is to detox. After all of the junk food that we have binged on over Christmas, we should focus on ridding ourselves of these unhealthy habits. With this purpose in mind, I want to recommend some of my personal favourite detox secrets with the aim to flush out the stored toxins in your body.

Detox Plan Superfoods Healthy

An effective detox plan demands superfoods

To begin with, remove all of the sugar fuelled treats that you have leftover from Christmas. These cannot be incorporated into your new healthy diet. We must start afresh! For those of you who are not great meat lovers, try a vegan diet for a better digestive condition. On the other hand, if you cannot compromise with your carnivorous ways, there is no need to distress. Fill the new space in your cupboards with more green leafy vegetables, salmon, eggs, berries, nuts, seeds and any other foods which fall into the ‘superfood’ category. The more colourful the food the better. In short, I want your cupboard to represent a rainbow. Replace beiges and browns with vibrant colours and you will soon enough reap the benefits.

Dry January detox

I am sorry to do this to you, but you know that if you want to have more energy in the morning, then you need to give up the alcohol you drank the night before. Equally important as what you eat, is what you drink. Having said that, your liver is one of the key organs that will help you to detox your body. So take care of it! Intend to avoid alcohol in any event and replace with two to four cups of herbal tea, for the first few weeks. In the end, I promise that you will feel the difference. Your liver will also thank you for it too!

Undeniably, green tea should be part of this daily detox diet. Loaded with antioxidants, this will help to break down the food you eat. All in all, resulting in better digestion and boost to weight loss. Similarly, ginger tea is also high in antioxidants and will help to ease digestive discomfort. This tea is so easy to make…simply, infuse dried or fresh pieces of ginger into hot water for a few minutes and enjoy its warming taste. Using the same method, place 1 to 2 tablespoons of ground or powdered turmeric in hot water, but this time leave it to infuse longer, for around 10 minutes. Strain the tea into a mug, and add a little honey for a sweeter taste. Turmeric tea contains antibacterial properties that boost your immune system, whilst reducing inflammation.

Detox Plan Healthy Juices

Replace coffee with fresh juices

On the condition that you drink coffee in moderation, it’s perfectly ok to have the occasional caffeine-fuelled drink. Coffee can help to improve your energy levels. In addition, it can also help you to burn fat by boosting your metabolic rate. On the contrary, it can lead to feeling anxious, restlessness, and dehydration. None of these effects will assist you with your fitness journey. For this reason, I recommend setting yourself an aim to cut back gradually your caffeine intake. Start by opting for a carrot juice instead of your usual cup of coffee with your breakfast. Progressively reducing your coffee consumption from four a day to just one, then to an occasional intake once or twice a week, etc.

If you are searching for some juice ideas then I recommend having some fun and playing around with different fruits and vegetables. With that in mind, it is rare that you will come across a fruit that does not have some benefits for your new healthy lifestyle. Oranges will boost your immune system as they are high in Vitamin C, ginger aids digestion, whilst an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Invest in a quality juicer and experiment with your own juice creations. Wholefully provides us with some great ideas to kickstart our detox.

Travelling during the optimistic new year of 2021

Being French and then moving to the UK, my family always loved travelling. Although I am settled here in the UK, I have missed travelling, like never before.  I long for that feeling to walk down the aisle (no, not that kind!) and jet off to a new destination, to meet new people, to experience a new culture, to see spectacular sights. It is apparent that after living under restrictions for the majority of this year, people want to escape. Searching hopefully towards our freedom returning in 2021, what does the future look like for keen travellers. It fills me with delight to say that there is hope on the horizon!

Travelling New Year 2021 Travel Corridors

Travelling for those of us here in the UK

At present, here in the UK, we have a list of places which we can and cannot travel to. If a country has an R number (used to measure any disease’s ability to spread) below 1, then it is deemed safe to travel to this country. Former times of randomly pointing at a map and deciding that this will be your next destination are temporarily off-limits. At present, people are anxious about travelling. Holidays & flights are constantly being cancelled as the government updates its list.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. Airlines including EasyJet have reported a surge in bookings. We’re now excited at the prospect to travel again! Although nothing is definite as of yet, thanks to the introduction of the vaccine, there is hope. The situation looks to be better folks, not worse. Travel companies are seeing the return of bookings to more traditional destinations, rather than those associated with visiting friends & family. For those of you longing to return to the Spanish sunshine, this may be possible by March 2021. After the majority of the vulnerable groups of the population have received the vaccine. Now, where did I put my flip-flops?

Fewer restrictions, more destinations

Within Europe, more destinations are welcoming the return of tourists. We save our money to spend in the destinations we travel to. They want us to spend our money there, so everybody’s happy! If you are searching for the most dependable destinations to travel to 2021, I have some recommendations.

Travelling New Year 2021 Travel Ideas

Mingle in Montenegro

If you are thinking of travelling to Montenegro, you may not need to wait until the new year. Countries which are listed on Montenegro’s ‘green’ list do not require any test to travel there, as it remains open for tourism. Those looking to explore a multicultural European spot filled with magnificent mountains, vibrant monasteries and rich in history, Montenegro is calling you. Montenegro is a notoriously expensive destination to travel to. Take advantage of the cheap flights available right now, which are at a bargain price compared to years previous. Grasp this opportunity and make this your ideal spot for 2021!

Travelling to Croatia

At the moment, you need to present a negative PCR test taken in the 48 hours prior to travelling here. Understandably, Croatia has taken the precautions necessary to protect themselves. Despite this fact, Croatia has always been so welcoming to tourism, allowing entry for most foreign travellers. This is evident in the people you meet there like the warm welcome you receive when you arrive at your small and family-run hotel. If you enjoy hiking then I recommend the Saucony Paklenica Trail. Providing you with a beautiful landscape overlooking Croatia’s promise land, filled with natural beauty.

 

After months of cabin fever, I think that 2021 should be the year to take that trip of a lifetime! Forget the mini breaks, we have gone long enough without travelling around this wonderful world of ours. So instead, book the trip that you were saving for the future & let us live in today, not tomorrow.

Christmas jumper day 2020 – a charitable cause

Christmas jumper day is an annual event where people wear a festive Christmas jumper to work, school, etc, during one day of the year. This may seem like a strange concept for those of you residing in other countries but here in the UK, it is a big event. Shops stock up their supply of Christmas jumpers in preparation for this day, falling this year on the 11th of December. There is however a very good cause behind it. You yourself, or a family member, donate £2 to the Save the Children charity. The money raised is then donated to children in need all across the world.

Christmas Jumper Day Charity Help

Buy a cheap Christmas jumper and offer your money to a better cause

If you have misplaced your last Christmas jumper which is probably lying in storage somewhere, then please don’t spend a lot of your money on a new top-notch jumper. A much better idea is to donate this money to the charity and instead look for a cheap jumper that can be altered if required (I will tell you more about this later).

As I mentioned before “A tiny gesture can go a long way”. This is your way to help an association in need.

Firstly, I recommend browsing your local charity, or second-hand shop. Here you will be sure to find a bargain at a snippet of the prices available on the high street. Failing that, I’ve sought some of the cheapest Christmas jumpers available online based on the most important aspect of price.

On our trusted favourites eBay & Amazon, you can pick up a second-hand Christmas jumper from as little as £0.01! All you will need to pay is the postage. Wowcher finds deals available on the web. If you become a member, you will benefit from these daily offers. Create alerts for any offers relating to Christmas jumpers, and you may find a real bargain!

Christmas Jumper Day Upcycle

Upcycle an old jumper – get crafty

The whole meaning behind this date is charity. So instead of buying a new jumper, why not upcycle one of your old ones lying in your wardrobe. The charity itself provides some affordable means of how you can do this.

One of the ways they suggest is by knitting your own Christmas jumper. This may seem like a hobby only your grandma partakes in but this year with most of us having more free time at home, why not make the most of this time and engage in a new hobby. It doesn’t have to be knitting. If you or someone you know owns a sewing machine then grab some old fabrics together and start making your own unique creation. I recommend using materials made from natural fibers such as wool, cashmere, and linen. This will create a much more breathable material and will always wear well over time.

Last year over 4 million people in the UK took part in Christmas jumper day. A cheerful way of raising money for a worthy cause. Anybody can take part and donate. So embrace your creative side and design your own original Christmas jumper. One of a kind, just like you!

Black Friday during a nationwide lockdown

As I am sure you are well aware by now, most European countries are living under some form of restrictions placed by their Government due to Covid 19. Here in the UK, Boris Johnson has recently announced that restrictions will be eased from the 2nd December in certain parts of the country. This seems a little too late considering that at the moment, we are only permitted to purchase essential items. So amongst this pandemic, how can we really benefit from the offers which Black Friday brings?

Black Friday – but only for your fruit & veg

Some of you may have seen the hilarious video of the man in Whales who recently walked into a supermarket wearing only his boxers. The reason behind this stunt was because the current rules state that clothes are not considered as ‘essential’. In recent times, the press has issued articles about supermarkets removing ‘non-essential’ items from their shelves. The whole intention behind it is to discourage people from entering the store, unless it is to buy the necessary items such as food, etc.

In spite of the rationale behind this rule, I can’t help but wonder how businesses are going to suffer even further. In years gone by, Black Friday has always been a notoriously huge event. Crowds of people battled with security and other bargain hunters to get their hands on TVs, consoles, and all other kinds of gadgets. Last year, fights even erupted! Everyone wants to get hold of these incredible offers. Especially considering that Christmas is just around the corner. Why wait longer if you know that you can buy the product for half the price on Black Friday?

Friday 27 November – Save the date

The date is looming! Black Friday is approaching…except, houston we have a problem! In the UK, the high street is officially closed. For the first time ever, Black Friday will be held completely online.

Black Friday Online Christmas Offers

 

It’s not all bad news though. To entice customers, businesses have launched deals earlier to entice customers. I have already started to search for the best deals now. For the reason that if I wait, all of the top deals will be gone by the time Cyber Monday arrives. Get the upper hand and make your purchases early! Already, I have seen astounding deals including £200 off the iPhone 11. These deals are unlikely to be reduced further on Black Friday. In 2020, this event no longer consists of just one day.  It’s a whole week of offers, reductions, and opportunities to spend your hard-earned cash.

Speaking of great deals, if you want an absolute steal, remember the exciting Gift Box  I told you about before where you can claim a free gift box of 5 cosmetic products. Honest Kiss has now introduced an amazing Black Friday Gift Box including free Nars, Lancôme, Givenchy & L’Occitane products. If you haven’t already taken advantage of their trial offer since my last post, head over to their website and take a look!

The best Black Friday offers available

As you all well know by now, I am passionate about staying fit and healthy. For those of you like myself, who like to knock spots off your latest step count, Argos has reduced the price of the FitBit Charge 4 from £129.99 to £99.99. A great saving to go into the new year fighting fit.

FitBit Fitness Healthy Lifestyle Walking

Whilst we are still in lockdown, why not try some baking? I love to create new recipes with my stand mixer. This piece pays for itself. As on the Great British Bake Off, you can be just like Mary Berry. Rustling up some delicious cakes this Christmas. BBC GoodFood highlights some of the best mixers available on the market. Stand mixers are infamously expensive. This article highlights which brand to invest your money in, depending on factors such as capacity, versatility, and most importantly, value for money. Check out which ones they recommend, and track down those offering a Black Friday discount.

During my latest trip to Georgia, it became apparent that I needed to invest in some new suitcases. However, being the penny pincher that I am, until the wheels literally fall off the thing, I will not buy another. Having said that, Samsonite’s exclusive Black Friday sale has introduced up to 70% discount off their FLUX collection. With a trusted brand like Samsonite, I can be sure that this will not simply be a purchase but more of an investment. Accompanying me on the many adventures to come. Keep checking my blog to see which destination I head to next!

Georgia: where Europe meets Asia

One of the most interesting places I’ve visited is Georgia. It’s a beautiful country with plenty of things to see and do. Dramatic, picturesque, and eclectic all at the same time! And the food, absolutely incredible. 

It is still relatively undiscovered by tourists so here you’ll really experience the authentic Georgia. I love this aspect! Having the possibility to meet locals and connect with them is so precious.

Tbilisi the heart of Georgia

At first this amazing city can seem a little bit overwhelming and even chaotic but if you look closer you realise that it is actually not at all like that. Many of the neighbourhood still retain a village feel. 

It’s such a beautiful city with a lot of history and you can kind of feel all the things that have happened here. I can only imagine what the walls of the building would say if they could speak. 

It’s a great place to stroll around. The Old Town offers instagrammable corners on every narrow street and there are plenty of bohemian bars and cosy coffee shops to give your feet a rest for a little while. Walking next the beautiful river is also not to be missed.

Tbilisi has the perfect location in a valley between mountains so it really offers a spectacular view from almost every part of the city. 

Georgia, and especially Tbilisi, really is a great place to visit and so is Slovenia

Georgia is a beauiful country split between Europe and Asia. Here you can experince Tbilisi and stroll the streets of the old towna dn try delicious traditional dumplings or visit the wine region and learn more about the wine making process used in Georgia.

The food scene 

The food in Georgia is so comforting and so good. I ate so well during my time there and I don’t think there was not even one thing out of the things I tried that I didn’t like. You can expect quite a hearty diet in Georgia with a lot of meat and potatoes but everything is just so good and tastes homemade. I love that. 

Khachapuri is one of my favourite things to eat in Georgia. A cheese stuffed bread with a few varieties that often include eggs. Absolutely delicious and of course very filling as it is bread and cheese! 

My next tip on food that you shouldn’t miss is the traditional dumplings! They are typically stuffed with meat and spices. You can try them either boiled or steamed, they are delicious either way! If you are vegetarian you will find great options for you as well – mushroom and cheese are a couple of examples. 

A visit to the wine country 

I had no idea that Georgia was full of vineyards until I visited the country. So if you have a few extra days I’d definitely recommend you to get out of Tbilisi. A visit to the wine region is the perferct break. 

You’ll be amazed at the breathtaking scenery and if you are into wine you can visit a vineyard. The winemaking tradition dates back to a long time ago. The Georgians use a special technique for making the wine.

A great base for your wine country tour is the town Sighnaghi, a very charming town that is surrounded by a stone wall and has a beautiful watchtower. From here you can easily get around with the help of a tour guide and get a feel for this part of Georgia.

Slovenia: The Fairytale Country You Should Visit

Slovenia is a beautiful fairytale country that is still not on many people’s bucket list – but should be! Slovenia has approximately 500 castles which is insane! Nature is stunning here with the green surroundings and the lakes where many castles are right in the middle of.  Some huge films have been made here, includingThe Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”.

Nature, lakes and beaches in Slovenia

First of all, if you haven’t seen Narnia, get to it already! It’s a beautiful story and I’m not surprised that a part of it was filmed in Slovenia. If you loved the movie and are planning a trip to Slovenia then visit Soca ( Soča ) Valley and the Cathedral Cove.  Cathedral Cove is incredible with its green waters where you can enjoy snorkeling and diving. The coastal walks will probably take your breath away a little, as it did with me!

Slovenia might not be as popular of a destination as Amsterdam for example, but it has just as much charm!

Soca Valley in Slovenia is, according to me, one of the most magical places on Earth. I do love my nature and I wouldn’t mind going back to this place. It’s perfect If you love nature, adventure and even tranquility. We tried zip lining over the canyons with a company called Soca Rafting. 40 km per hour gets your heart beating and the adrenaline pumping pretty fast, trust me!

Water rafting is also really popular here and I highly recommend it. The water’s emerald color is a sight you will remember for life, at least I know I will. At the end of July, there is the Soca Outdoor Festival with a paragliding contest which was so much fun to watch.

There is just so much to do here so if you’re an active person and you like doing a lot of things on your vacation, this is the spot in Europe to be next summer (fingers crossed). Bungee Jumping and skydiving are a rush too if you want to take it one step further!

The Castles and Fortresses

The next time I go to Slovenia I’m going to make it an “all castle trip”.  The plan is to travel from castle to castle and see magical places. I might not choose all 500 of them but at least 50 or so ? You’ll find amazing medieval castles and Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

Here are a few castles I have visited and the ones I have my eye on:

  • The Bled Castle
  • Brdo Castle
  • Zuzemberk Castle
  • Celje Castle
  • Predjama Castle

You can’t Google Slovenia without getting the Bled Castle in the middle of the lake. It’s Slovenia’s landmark, standing on a cliff that is overlooking the lake. Absolutely stunning, especially during the night so try and time it for both a day and a night visit. Lake Bled, where the castle is located, was once a health resort, popular among the aristocrats.

If you decide to visit the Predajma Castle, make sure to include the Postojna Cave. Postojna Cave is one of Slovenia’s largest cave systems and is truly impressive. There are a lot of tours you can book, we arranged one with our hotel and it was great.

So 2021, let the summer adventures and travels begin!

The professional team is here to help you and answer all your questions and doubts. In my opinion both are excellent to feel better in your body and to boost your self-confidence. Nothing is more important than loving yourself and your body!

Brand new: Wild X Beauty‘s monthly card now gives you access to entertainment services. Try out music streaming platforms such as Spotify or Youtube Premium.

The cancellation of the contract

It is a non-committal registration. It means that everyone is free to unsubscribe at any time! No obligation of buying anything and when you do cancel, the gift cards you haven’t used yet are still available. If you use them, it will not commit you gain to the membership.

You can cancel your subscription in a few seconds only. There are two options: you can go directly to the website and do it yourself. Enter your personal data and just click unsubscribe. You will receive a confirmation email. I recommend you to save it with a screenshot! You can also contact their amazing customer service and ask them to do it. Same as before, they will send you a confirmation in only a few minutes.

To sum up, why I recommend Wild X Beauty

  • The welcome gift box: probably my favorite thing about Wild X Beauty. I wasn’t expecting it at all and I find the system incredible. It is such a good gift and a good way to create loyalty from customers.
  • The fact to have a gift card every month and to be able to order what I want! Once again, I much prefer a gift card and not a similar gift box every month. This way I am able to order sunglasses, then clothes, then books… It’s never the same and it keeps the sparkles on!
  • Non-committal registration. Stop it whenever you want, without any obligation! No 6 months or 1 year contract, so nothing hidden and just do it when your budget lets you.
  • Large selection available. One of the biggest on a fashion shopping website!

Those are only a few of all the advantages Wild X Beauty has to offer. Even you, will probably find more when you will try it out. Please, do not hesitate to share it with me! Let me know what you think about it, but I’m pretty sure you will be very pleased. I don’t know any other website with such a good offer on the market, and such good quality products with these prices. It is definitely a bargain, and I will probably stay with them for a very long time !

IT Entrepreneur Michael Ginnerskov Jensen claims online shopping is about to change

Online shopping is something I think that most of us have done one or more times during the last year. Maybe not EVERYONE, but at least us from the younger generations. When I heard that Michael Ginnerskov Jensen claims that online shopping is about to change, I had to take a closer look. Can it really be possible that my beloved online shopping is about to change?

How can something we all do change drastically?

The main thing that made me so interested in the opinion of Michael Ginnerskov Jensen was that I thought the way we online shop already worked just fine. But looking into how he claims it will change made me open my eyes a bit. He claims that shopping with gift cards is the new thing. In Michael Ginnerskov Jensen’s online store, that is how you do it. You become a member of the club, and you receive gift cards every month. You can then use the gift card in the online store of Michael Ginnerskov Jensen, and purchase whatever you want from the exclusive member section. They have a lot of different fashion and beauty products. 

Shopping

Why will this be the next new thing?

My first thought was that it just sounds so easy. Getting a gift card every month, paid for by myself. And then I can purchase whatever I want in good conscience. I love that the online store has everything from makeup to skincare. And not to mention all the different fashion brands. I was quite impressed that a man, Michael Ginnerskov Jensen, had this idea. And the whole thing of being charged and then get a gift card of the same amount I don’t mind. When I like the specific online store, I honestly am just happy to have a gift card there. And as all gift cards, if you don’t want anything that specific month… You just save it for later. It is very easy!

Michael Ginnerskov Jensen wants to make donation a part of the shopping process

In the online store of Michael Ginnerskov Jensen, he has a donation program. I think this is something that is really great. Donating is something I personally think that everyone should do. When I saw that the online store has its own donation program I was very happy. Thinking about the planet is important, and the world just gets more and more conscious of that every day. Being able to benefit from a donation program and donating the clothes you purchase is great. The online store has a club and as a member, you will get a gift card if you donate clothing you purchased from the online store. The only rule is that you’ve had to own the fashion items at least 6 months. I really like this concept and I will definitely try it. I’m always open to trying something new. In addition, when I know that I can get ahold of great brands at amazing prices, I’m happy.
