Selling on eBay with Shiply

Selling on eBay is one of the many ways I make money online. I have had an online eBay shop since the kiddies were born over 4 years ago. It has been kept me quite busy for years in a little way. I sell both pre loved items and brand new items on there and I make quite a few hundreds every few months. It is a great way of decluttering my home and making money by the side. A win-win!

However, having an eBay store can be time consuming especially when it comes to listing your items for sale. Thankfully, eBay has simplified this process, and it is now only a few clicks to list items on the eBay app. In the early days, listing items on eBay took forever and it was one of those jobs I never looked forward to. But these days, I am usually one listing 10 items or more (depending on how quickly I move) in 30 minutes.

 

Shiply – The Transport Marketplace

If you buy or sell items on eBay, then you will know all about the troubles of dealing with large items that can’t go in the regular post. I have had my own fair dealings with large items that I have had to sell as collection only because I am unable to post them. Items like a baby bath stand, car seats, bicycles, baby walkers and many more.

Listing an item as a collection only automatically reduces the chances of the item selling. Only people who are nearby or able to travel to you would be interested. Which means you could have your collection only items listed for a very long time without any sort of interest. So you cam imagine my excitement to discover Shiply. For those who have never heard of Shiply, it is a large item courier service used by millions of people to ship large/bulky items.

How It Works

Using the Shiply service is quite easy, all you have to do is complete a form online and wait for the quotes to come via email. It is fast, easy and very affordable since Shiply’s delivery companies are already making similar trips. The quotes are usually up to 75% cheaper than standard rates, which is amazing for us eBay sellers. I like the fact that I can now get my large and bulky items delivered to my customers through Shiply. You can send pretty much anything legal through this courier service, even cars. It is the one of most convenient services available today.

Shiply is a blessing to business owners, especially eBay sellers that sell various items for a living. The convenience of it all ticks all boxes for me. I no longer have to list items as collection only with this amazing courier service. It has definitely made my life a lot easier.

How to Treat Hay Fever

Hay Fever Sucks! This was the last tweet I sent last night while battling to get some sleep. I was sneezing non stop for minutes, and my throat itched like hell, driving me crazy. Which kept me up for hours. I still can’t remember how I managed to finally sleep off.

Hay Fever is still new to me. I started having the symptoms for the first time 2 summers ago, and it has been hell ever since!  On most spring/summer days, I dread it when it gets really warm because I know I usually have a Hay Fever crisis and it is painfully uncomfortable. I am allergic to the Grass Pollen, which is the same with many other sufferers.

For those who have never suffered from Hay Fever, this annoying disease, medically known as Allergic rhinitis,  is a type of inflammation in the nose which occurs when the immune system overreacts to allergens in the air. Signs and symptoms usually include a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, red, itchy, and watery eyes, and swelling around the eyes.

Now I don’t understand why my immune system is suddenly overreacting to allergens in the air, but that is what is pretty happening and it sucks. I managed to get my GP (Doctor) to send my Hay Fever prescription to my local pharmacy so I could pick up my medication. The over counter Hay Fever medicine does not work for me, so I had to get on a particular prescription drug last year. And I take them every summer  The drugs help but not as much. I still have to deal with the symptoms on some days where the pollen count is at its highest.

Apart from my Hay Fever prescription drug, I also try some home remedies to help keep me sane.

 

How to treat Hay Fever yourself
  1. Put on your sunglasses when you are out and about. This help protects the eyes from pollen.
  2. Apply Petroleum Jelly around your nostrils to trap pollen.
  3. Stay indoors as much as possible.
  4. Take your medicine first thing in the morning.
  5. Change your clothes and take a shower once you get home.

 

The Met Office categorises these Hay Fever phases as:

  1. Tree pollen – late March to mid-May.
  2. Grass pollen – mid-May to July.
  3. Weed pollen – end of June to September

Thanks for reading. Have a lovely bank holiday weekend.

 

Beautiful Products I Have Tried Lately

Hello peeps! How are we? I am in New York holidaying with the fam. It is 4am now, and I am wide awake so I thought to do some work while everyone is still snoring. I have been in New York city for some days now and it has been good. I will be writing all about my stay in the Big Apple and my next destination really soon, so look out for my next travel posts.

As a blogger, I am forever trying new products. And I love that about my job. The process of trying out products and telling you all about them gives me joy. Here are some of the beautiful products I have tried lately.

 

LOCKSTONE PRIMA WHITE LILY ROSE GOLD ADJUSTABLE BRACELET HERS £69.99

Beautiful Products image

 

This beautiful Lockstone Prima White Lily Rose Gold Adjustable bracelet by Vanacci is one of my current favourites. I love the delicate look and the fact that I can capture my fragrance in it. You know how much I love my perfumes, so the fact that I can capture my fragrance in this bracelet makes it even more beautiful.

All I need to do is to spray only a single spray onto the Lockstone™ material. The bracelet is best worn with direct skin contact and will slowly diffuse your fragrance throughout the day. The fragrance will last approximately seven times longer than wearing your fragrance without it.

 

So Eco Face Brush Set £15

I am always on the lookout for great makeup brushes to add to my makeup collection. This So Eco Face Brush Set is a new addition. I like the fact that brushes are Vegan and Vegetarian friendly. The hand cut and trimmed feature is also another plus.

A set contains 4 large hand cut brushes perfect for the application of facial makeup, either liquid or powder. The affordable price tag of £15 is also a plus. 

You can grab this on Amazon, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Fragrance Direct and other stores.

 

Look Good Feel Better Anti-Bacterial Brush Set £35

This Anti-Bacterial Brush Set by Look Good Feel Better is another favourite of mine  I adore the beautiful packaging and the fact that the brand supports women with cancer. It is great to see big brands support great causes.

These makeup brushes are cruelty free and soft touch. A set contains –

  • Protective Pouch
  • Large Multi-Tasking Brush
  • Round Foundation Brush
  • Eye Shading Brush
  • Lip Brush

 

These makeup brushes have a soft touch which makes them great for all skin types. I am loving them. You can grab this brush set from M&S and other stores.

 

Radiance Facial Oil £29.99

This Radiance Facial Oil by Urban Veda heals blemishes, supports elasticity and restores suppleness. It also helps the skin to retain its natural glow. I have used the Radiance Facial Oil for weeks now and I like it. The compact beautiful packaging with the dropper makes it very easy to use. All I need to do is apply 3-4 drops daily to cleansed and toned skin.
