Swap Siopa! Swap your Christmas unwanteds for something gorgeous!

By Beautie | January 8 2013 | 17 Comments

Aunty Anne gave you ANOTHER bottle of that perfume you loved at 14 but can’t stand now you’re 34? Other half got the Chanel bit right but got you No. 5 instead of Eau Premiere? Big sis bought you the Soap & Glory set you also bought for yourself?

Sometimes getting something that’s almost right but just not you is nearly worse than the crap pressie. I mean novelty jumpers you can wear, for the craic, obvs. Tacky crap?  You can easily donate that to the charity shop in January. But good stuff? Lovely things that someone paid hard earned cash for? They sit in the drawer haunting you. Every time you take out a clean pair of knickers, that bottle of perfume will be there, like the creepy polar bear, reminding you of what an awful person you are not to be grateful.

Who ya gonna call? Swap Siopa!

In January, post all your unwanted goodies and free yourself from the guilt!  Head over now to get swapping, see what other people have up for swap and register for the forums if you’re not already a member.  It’s all free and easy and has been working without a hitch for years.

Hint: Unopened goodies swap faster then opened. If you’re unsure about a gift test it in the shops before you open it ;)

Happy Swapping!

    Hah perfect timing – I was on Swap Siopa wondering if I could save myself some money before forking out to BT’s for some MAC powder. I found I still have a new Perfect Topping which I’m sure someone else could make use of. Must put up a post! :)

    Perfect Topping!! Oh be still my beating heart. Put it up quick, you’ll have the hand bitten off you

  • Rebelette says:

    Ok I will! :)

    Any chance my membership for the forums will be authorised soon? I’ve a few bits I could stick up there too.

  • Jennifer says:

    Love love love this idea! :)

    @EvieM – We’re working on it! ;)

  • EvieM says:

    Thanks Jennifer x

  • Jennifer says:

    EvieM, when did you register with us? We get a ton of spam requests that I’m working on clearing up, but I’ve not come across you yet and I’d like to get you registered and ready to go. Maybe try and sign up again? Or failing that, do you roughly know the date you sent in your original request?

  • EvieM says:

    Ammm probably around Sept/Oct Jennifer. I spoke to Principessa (I think) about it on the blather a while after and she said it would take some time.

  • EvieM says:

    Jennifer, I just tried to register again there but it said my name and email address are already in use. I tried to login using EvieM in case I had been authorised and just missed the email telling me but it said I had tried too many times???
