Give as you Live

My beautiful amethyst necklace that I won in Vicky's giveaway arrived this week (how cute is the note<3); it's so amazing that I had to post a picture of it immediately. Definitely going to wear it this weekend, don't think I'll ever be able to take it off aha. I'm sure you all follow Vicky already... (if you don't then get over to her blog, she finds the most amazing jewellery EVER, fact.) but for those of you who don't know she hosted this giveaway (along with 4 other items) on behalf of Wired Jewellery; their jewellery ranges from gorgeous gemstones like this to quirky crosses, skulls and above the knuckle rings. 

Last week I raised money buying a few basics from Topshop and guest posted for the Give as you Live blog here after Jess told me about it; so I thought I'd share this with you for the charitable amongst you; think 'raise money for charity' and 'online shopping' in once sentence...

Give as you Live is an online shopping tool working in collaboration with over 1000 stores, including Topshop, Urban Outfitters & Office. All you have to do is carry out your usual online shopping through the tool and these stores will donate a % of what you spend with them to you charity of your choice with no extra cost to you. In my eyes Give as you Live offers guilt free shopping and an effortless way to give to charity- amazing!! Being a major fan of charity shops, it's good to know that the bigger stores are getting involved in raising money for those who need it.
