Online shopping, giving back and Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes

June 28, 2016


I’m a huge fan of online shopping mainly because I get to sit on my butt on my couch and look at pretty things which I can order just by pressing a couple of computer keys. I mean don’t get me wrong I love a bit of a Mall trawl every now and then, but nothing beats being able to shop in your tracksuit pants and socks while Game of Thrones plays in the background.

I have a few sites that I really like because of their selection and reliability and one of those places is LOOT, in fact 9 times out of 10 when I’m ordering books online this is my go to place, so I was super pleased to hear that and MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet have just recently made LOOT one of their new retail partners, which means that every time I shop with them I’m giving back to my community and more specifically to my chosen beneficiary the Thuso Fund for Schools & Charities ( LOOT will give back a percentage on every item purchased across their extensive shop towards the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet program). All I have to do is input my MySchool card number during my payment process and that’s that and the best part is the donation comes from the retailer at no extra expense to the consumer!



Every now and then I get involved in sponsored posts, but it makes my heart really happy when they’re endorsing awesome initiatives like this one. MySchool currently has 1.1 million active cardholders and raises an average of R6 million per month for schools and charities! Which is amazing!!! Another cool thing is that as part of the launch of this partnership 2 300 Tutudesk lap desks have been given to under-resourced schools around the country.

I was invited by MySchool to buy something off LOOT so that I could also contribute to their cause and to my beneficiary the Thuso Fund and so I decided that I would buy myself a couple more cookbooks because in my opinion, no one can ever have too many cookbooks on their shelf to drool over and experiment from. I also thought that I would share one of my favourite recipes from one of the books just to make this post a little sweeter.

So here’s to raising money for a good cause every time you spend money, to online shopping and to the sweet sweet smell of Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes.
