Meet the team, introducing Jess

Jess Savage-55-2Jess has worked at Give as you Live for two years as a Community Manager and is heavily involved with the social media side of things. She studied Graphic Design at college and in her spare time enjoys a spot of cross stitching. She lives in Cheltenham and can be found searching through local car boot sales for furniture to restore or in the park reading a good book.

Last item bought:  Coffee and Cigarettes, a poetry book by Sade Andria Zabala from Amazon

Sade Andria Zabala  is a writer I discovered and fell in love with on Tumblr. I found the book from Amazon as she is self published, which raised £0.10 for charity.

Most wanted item: Herschel Classic Backpack from ASOS 

I really want a Herschel backpack for the summer as I’ll be doing a lot of riding and will need something more practical than a handbag- but can I justify spending more on a backpack than I would on a handbag? Hmmm…

Favourite new store: Culture Label

Culture Label have just come on board with Give as you Live and I have fallen in love with everything on there, plus they donate 3% of your spend to charity.  You can find the most amazing and individual items for reasonable prices. The company highlights emerging talent and supports the arts, as well as providing the shopper with a unique experience.  My favourite item has to be the Cat Nap pillow cases!
