The UK has just announced that they will allow E-scooter rental trials in the UK and the latest entrant to the market is TIER. They have poached some of the senior leaders from Uber ahead of the launch and I for one am looking forward to see what the offering is.

And to get you started I have included a FREE Unlock and 15 minutes of free ride time on your first booking. You need to actually use the link to download the app and register for it to work. Unfortunately if you have already downloaded the app then this probably wont work but no harm in trying I guess.

The scooters look really cool and are really simple to use. Just be careful where you ride them and wear a helmet if possible.

Full details will follow when they launch but until then get downloading and send your invite to your friends to get more free minutes.

KNOOPS – Referral for 15 PTs FREE

Knoops Referral code:

Register with the Knoops Chocolate app and enter referral code: faisaln2676 to get 15 FREE points added to your Knoops App balance. You need 30 points for a FREE drink and this should mean you have 40 POINTS as you get 25 on joining.

Who doesn’t love hot chocolate right? And Knoops have probably some of the best on the market. These guys specialise in hot chocolate so you can be pretty sure they will do an amazing job.

I came across Knoops in Kensington London but they have a couple of stores in the UK and another opening in Chelsea London shortly … and I was blown away with the choice and quality of chocolate on offer. They actually offer a huge range of chocolate drinks, both hot and cold as well as coffee drinks and products for use at home but the in-store hot chocolate I tried was truly divine.

Knoops referral code: faisaln2676

The choice was a little overwhelming but the ‘knoopologist’ provided some great advice and I went with a 43% single origin Venezuala with hints of hazelnut and butterscotch! It was lovely!

The ‘home’ range at Knoops is pretty impressive too. I already have a Nespresso machine with the aeroccinno and I found that buying some chocolate flakes from Knoops worked perfectly with my machine doing the warming and mixing ;-). Knoops actually sell a number of machines in-store very similar to the famous Velvitiser available from Hotel Chocolat.

The range of grated flakes available at Knoops means you will struggle to decide which to buy but of course the ‘knoopologist’ can advise. You obviously can’t go wrong with the 34% milk chocolate flakes but if you want o be more daring they have a number of options available to purchase.

Looks like Knoops will be by new hot chocolate go to … especially for the home range. The in store chocolate was amazing but until someone starts doing hot chocolate like I had in Paris @ Angelina I will keep my purchases to a minimum. 🙂

Let me know if you check the place out and what you order. Would love to hear what your favourite was… I will definitely be trying a different blend when I next visit.

Some of you who have been following my financial independence journey will have seen my blog posts on buying and selling stocks and shares so you will know and it was only a matter of time before I moved onto crypto currencies 🙂

So as I’m new to crypto I will be taking things very slowly – but I thought it was important that I at least had a crypto wallet setup so that when I decide to buy any crypto I have somewhere to put it .

I have actually joined two different crypto wallet providers – coinbase and bitwala and I will be reviewing both of these when I have had a chance to use them in anger.

In the meantime this article is about Nuri and its service offering which includes €15 free for following the referral link above and creating a bitcoin or ethereum wallet and making a 1st trade of €30. My Nuri invite link is :

The joining process is a new one for me 🙂 – You actually complete the relevant fields and you then need to complete and ID check with IDNOW which consists of a video call with a representative who checks you are who you say you are and verifies your ID documentation. Was a new experience for me! The whole process from downloading app and getting fully verified took about 15 minutes so not too onerous but I can imagine the video ID check being a little off putting!


So far I have found the app itself to be very easy to use with a very simple user interface. The euro bank account you are provided with is German with a DE IBAN number which will come in handy for some of the money transfer service offers on my blog 😉

I will do a complete writeup when I have deposited some Euros and purchased some crypto. Until then let me know what you think. Don’t forget to use my invite code for FREE €15 for joining and opening a crypto wallet using the link :

A few weeks ago I decided I needed to refresh my business cards as they were looking a bit tired and I just felt like I needed something new and exotic. I searched around online and ended up at WOW

Some of the most amazing business cards and print services I have ever seen. There were so many options and so many styles to choose from. I went ahead and placed an order hoping for some luxurious business cards and what I received exceeded my expectations! The quality was exceptional. The pictures online looked good and I was able to tweak a design which was on the website to create my personal design without having to design something from scratch which was a little beyond my skill level.

Enter referral code: FAISAL-RK when registering for an account at Beauty Expert. Then once you have added items to your basket you will see £5 discount at checkout. Note this code should stack with other voucher codes as this referral is auto applied 🙂

Lately I have been fine-tuning my skincare and beauty regime to a few of products that I cannot live without after trying and testing many different products over the years. The thing is as most have been quite expensive and the costs have been adding up and so it’s a been pretty expensive habit to continuing maintaining over the years. That said – I’ve never been one to compromise on quality so it has meant me having to be far more selective on what I buy. That was the case until I came across the Beauty Expert website where I have found prices to be significantly lower than buying the same product from the brand themselves or from the High street. I came across it whilst looking for a certain moisturiser and was surprised at the price of this moisturiser but also the huge range on offer! Combine the already low prices on the Beauty Expert’s website with registering using referral code: FAISAL-RK and you can get £5 off your first order over £30. Using this referral code (sometimes) allows for other coupon codes to be added which you might find being promoted on the website. So you can combine both and save even more money 🙂

Aside from some of the more expensive products I use – CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is a product that was recommended to me by my dermatologist for my dry skin and after trying lots of other products – this is the only one that really works for me. For that reason it’s one of my essential purchases I order regularly for daily use. Normally I would have purchased from another site but after finding it on Beauty Expert for a considerably cheaper price I’ve been able to by this and then some other products too!

At first, I thought this site was too good to be true because of the low prices of branded products that I wanted to order and some mixed reviews online – but I decided to give it a go and everything was perfect. All the way through the process from ordering to dispatch and delivery there was great communication and I knew exactly where my items were. Their processing and dispatch times were excellent, I was really happy and will be ordering again later next week! Don’t forget you can use my referral code: FAISAL-RK to get £5 off your first order over £30 and save money too.

I even buy my gifts from Beauty Expert now as they do some great collaborations in their Beauty Expert Collection and I bought the Glow Edition for my best friend who also loves skincare. It was a luxurious cosmetics bag full of six premium beauty products, that usually costs £275 but it was priced at only £99. It even came with a editorial magazine, which was great for beauty tips. There are lots of well-known brands on Beauty Expert from Aramis, DKNY, Elemis, POI and many, many more and I can afford to try some higher end products I wouldn’t normally be able to afford. They also stock tools such as NuFace mini facial toning device and L’Oréal Professional Steampod Straightening Tool 3.0 (which comes with a UK plug). The Beauty Expert company is a part of the Hut group which includes some of the world’s most distinguished brands in beauty and nutrition, so I know I can trust their products and their prices.

I love make-up and experimenting with different looks but it can be an expensive hobby! Especially when I want to keep up with current trends or even try out new styles, I’ve always held back but now I have found Glossy Box. An affordable subscription beauty box service that’s only £13.25 per month (or £11.75 per month for 12 months) that is delivered straight to my door every month full of new products for me to try out. It is even more appealing when you use a referral code: FAISAL-R8 which gives you an extra 20% off when registering for your 1st subscription order. You would be mad not to at least try a 3 month subscription. Even when you apply this referral code at registration, you can still sometimes can add other discounts codes to the cart at the same time for even more money off!

Glossybox is fantastic because having a selection of products picked out for me means I get to try out new products I would have never have tried otherwise. Also knowing that the experts at Glossybox have curated the selection means they have taken the hard work out of finding the best products meaning I no longer have to waste my time and money on products that just don’t live up to the hype or promise. The primer has been my favourite item so far and it’s something I cannot live without now but it’s not only make-up – Glossy Box contains a whole range of beauty and skincare products from moisturisers, face masks, eye creams, to shampoos and conditioners. I can even get all my make-up brushes there too!

Using the discount code for Glossy box, I’m able to complete my full skincare routine and make up look and have more creative freedom. It allows me to get the most for my money so I can enjoy the products without feeling so guilty about it!  I can now even budget and afford to try/test new products which has changed my make-up game, as I get products far cheaper than if I had bought them individually myself. Each month I receive my GlossyBox containing five different products all carefully handpicked by cosmetics experts and all iconic brands worth over £50. They come in a sleek black box gift wrapped with a chic pink bow, and every time I open it I feel like I am treating myself! As I don’t know what I’ll be receiving each month I look forward to my delivery and unpacking my GlossyBox and finding out what I’ve been sent. It’s a little surprise and my moment of self-pampering after a hectic few weeks of work. In addition as a huge fan of recycling, I also love the fact that I can use my GlossyBox for my make up-storage needs too and it doesn’t have to go to waste. I love everything about the concept and it’s definitely value for money! 

glossybox referral code: FAISAL-R8

The subscription service is flexible, and you can cancel anytime, but because I love most of the products I have received so far at an extremely competitive price point – I’ve now opted for the 12 months subscription as it’s the most cost effective package and I know I will be sticking around with this sub for a while.

There are even discounts included in the box so if there are products, I really like I can buy the full sized one online which is great, I received a body mist that was so divine I HAD to get a bigger size! You can see previous boxes on the website so there is transparency about what is being sent out, and as GlossyBox is part of the Hut group I know it’s a company I can trust.

I’ve been sharing the referral code with all of my friends and family, it makes a perfect gift as well as you can chose from the 3, 6 or 12-month plans, which is affordable. Use glossybox referral code: FAISAL-R8 to get a 20% discount on your order. If you do join up – Let me know what you think of the products and any items which you have received that you absolutely adore!

I can’t wait for next month’s GlossyBox to arrive!

So 2020 has been quite a difficult year for most of us…. and part of my preparation for 2021 has included clearing out all the old and starting afresh.

Some of you will know that I love my tech and gadgets and I love to have the latest phone and the latest laptop. So when I ordered my new Iphone I decided to see what I could get for my old device on the various trade in sites rather than have it lying around gathering dust

I checked the various sites for the prices they were offering for my Iphone but also for my laptop and for a combination of reasons I found musicmagpie was the best for me….


The prices were the best or at least in the top 3 for both devices I wanted to sell. For my Surface Pro – I could find very few sites which would offer me a trade in price and combined with the trust factor of Music Magpie I thought it was the best place to send my devices in to!

I know that some sites have pretty bad reviews when it comes to trading in your old tech but I found that not only was the process very simple. I literally added the details of the devices I wanted to sell and then was sent all the postage information by email.

Music Magpie Refer a Friend code: ZAAKIR WALIMIA

I packed up my devices and took them to my local sorting office and showed them the QR code and they printed off the label and attached. 3 days later received an email from music magpie and the payment was made to my Paypal account at the value which was agreed when I sent the devices in 🙂 . Winner.

Give them a go if you need to declutter or raise some extra cash and dont forget to use my referral code for an extra £5. Just enter my name : ZAAKIR WALIMIA during checkout and you will be emailed a voucher code to add at checkout for £5. If you are buying from music magpie then using the referal code will get you an additional 10% discount upto £50
