3 padded bras on Wowcher today. I might buy them and wear them all at the same time.
Note to all women everywhere; these are the least sexy bras ever, think aged 12 trainer bras mixed with a sports bra and you’re half way there."

"(Little) bird is the word"
A little bird told me about LittleBird and I’m glad they did. Away from the increasingly generic (and downright weird - ‘home sauna’ anyone?) offerings of Groupon, Wowcher, LivingSocial and the rest, is a diamond in the rough. A daily deal site in their words, ‘handpicked for families’. This is their great selling point, but if you don’t have a family don’t let that put you off; todays deal is cheesecake, everyone can enjoy cheesecake and I am sure that this can apply to a lot of their deals.
I’m a ‘single’ gal in a corporate sense, but I have young siblings, nieces, nephews, and cousins. I like to treat them regularly but as I am saving up to have a house and family of my own I can’t do this as often as I like, so I signed up for LittleBird immediately, I took no convincing. I’m really looking forward to reviewing something from them but alas it can not be the cheesecake as I gave up sweet grub for Lent.
I shall keep you posted.

"Hmmmm, this could possibly be the silliest thing I have ever done on a daily deal, but I have bought a tattoo consultation, design and 45 minutes tattoo time through Groupon. All in the name of research though, no one can accuse me of not taking this seriously. You might be waiting a while for the review but I think it will be worth it. Eep!"

SNO!zone bad, Groupon good.
A couple of weeks ago I bought 2 instructor led skiing passes for SNO!zone Milton Keynes for the bargain price of £21, or so it seemed. I had yet to book when I received an email to ‘clarify’ a few points about booking the deal with SNO!zone (can I stop writing it like that now? It’s pretty annoying and reminds me of Yo! Sushi). The email was to basically say that you couldn’t book in half of February and half of April and that you had to pay extra for the compulsory gloves. This would have been fine except when I called to book for any Saturday or Sunday in March I was told only a few sessions were being allocated for Groupon vouchers on a weekend and that these had already been booked. This wasn’t stated on the email from Groupon.
I’ll be damned if I am going to take a day, or even half a day, off work to spend an hour of it falling on my arse in Milton Keynes so I emailed Groupon and explained the situation, how difficult Snozone (haha they look silly when I write it like that) were being with the booking and that I understood I was out of the 7 day cancellation period. Guess what?! Groupon replied straight away with an apology and credited the money back to my Groupon account. I think that’s pretty good customer service if you ask me? I haven’t had to cancel a voucher before so can’t compare it with any other daily deal companies but please feel free to comment and let me know if you have had a similar experience.
