    Shopping Tips To Save You Money

    Shopping Tips To Save You Money is a paid AD with Latest Deals. I love nothing more than making designer purchases but living that kind of life all the time just isn’t realistic. I like to be able to save money on the purchases I make regardless of the price tag. That little saving can then go towards something else or be saved for a bigger purchase in the future. There are a few things I’ve been doing to try and make my money go further and I thought I would share them with you today. Shopping Tips Shop Pre-Owned I know I bang on about this all the time…

    FourFit Health Band

    You may remember back in February I wrote about returning to exercise. Things were going well for a while but then life got in the way again and I let things slip. When I was kindly gifted the Fourfit Health Band it seemed like the perfect time to get back into it. My Experience With Fitness Trackers I have worn a Fitbit for years. I have the original band which I mainly bought to track my sleep as I’ve had problems with insomnia for a long time. It just so happens that it tracks my steps which I find useful given that my job means I sit for most of…

    Trying Out NA-KD Fashion

    While I have heard of NA-KD Fashion I haven’t bought from them or seen their website, assuming it wouldn’t be for me- am I too old? When the brand contacted me to see if I would be interested in choosing a few pieces I did a bit of research first. I had a good look over their website to see what I thought. As you know I won’t work with a brand just for the sake of it, if I don’t see myself shopping there then it’s a no go. As it happens I loved pretty much everything on their site straight away. If you’ve been coming here a while…

    ABH Norvina Palette Review

    I very rarely fork out on makeup, so when I do it really must be something special. The last palette I bought was the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette late last year. For once I didn’t miss the hype and was aware of the Norvina Palette before it came out. I absolutely loved all of the colours so I immediately knew I needed it. Norvina In case you aren’t aware, the name of this Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette comes from the daughter of Anastasia herself. Norvina is named after Claudia Norvina Soare who is not only ABH’s brand president, but she is also the daughter of Anastasia Soare aka Anastasia Beverly…

    Why I Don’t See The Point In Paying Full Price For Designer

    I think nearly everyone knows I have a serious love of designer fashion and accessories. It may surprise you to learn that I have only ever paid full price for one designer bag and that was about 10 years ago. That bag was my Mulberry Bayswater which I paid for with a bonus from work. Ever since then I have only made sale purchases or shopped pre-owned. Saving Money It will probably surprise you to learn that I am actually really careful with money. I have always religiously saved a potion of my wage every month, even when I was very young. I was able to manage that because of…

    One Bag Three Ways With The Katherena Hollycroft Trunk

    If you’re a regular reader you know I like to do a little series called ‘one bag three ways’. I take a designer bag and style it with three different outfits to show how you can get the wear out of it. After all who wants to spend a fortune on something only to use it a couple of times? I have previously featured the Gucci Soho Disco, Saint Laurent Monogram, and the Givenchy Antigona. Anyway, having looked back over the blog I realised I haven’t written one of these posts since October last year! Today’s post on the Katherena Hollycroft Trunk stems from discovering the brand in Velvet Magazine and…

    Make The Moment With American Express

    Sponsored post in collaboration with American Express®. Since I became self-employed nearly five years ago, I’ve become more conscious of where my money goes. Now it’s all about making my money go further, which is why American Express® Membership Rewards Points strike a chord with me – letting me earn points on everyday purchases and using them to pay off nearly anything on my statement. They’re only available on selected American Express Cards but they’re worth checking out. Self Employed Life I think when you’re self-employed it is particularly important that you make time to get out and about and see people, even if it’s just for a cup of tea or…

    Redefining My Style and What Was I Thinking?

    In the past I have written several posts all revolving around style. These have been tips on how to find your personal style and about experimenting with your style. To be completely honest I’m feeling like a fraud as I feel like I’ve lost my own style. Redefining My Style This realisation came when I was looking for something to wear. It dawned on me I was reaching for exactly the same outfit every single day. For a start I feel like I’m stuck in a bit of a rut. I no longer feel like I know what suits me. For a while my style mainly consisted of jeans, t-shirts…

    Trying Out LVL Lashes After Seven Years Of Lash Extensions

    I am a lash extension addict. I have worn them pretty much continuously for about seven years with only two short breaks. My sister Abi is a beauty therapist and when she was training to be lash technician, I was one of her case studies. I loved the look of them straight away and was hooked. You see I’m quite lazy when it comes to make up and having extensions meant not worrying about wearing any mascara. Your lashes just look amazing all the time. A few months ago now, Abi trained in LVL and I was keen to give it try. As it happened she was super busy with clients…

    Why Dating Apps Aren’t For Me

    If you know me well you will probably be surprised to see me writing a post like this. It’s common knowledge that I like being single and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, for many reasons. I don’t have time for someone else in my life, my focus is elsewhere and I can’t be doing with the hassle. With all that said, curiosity does get the better of us and I wanted to see what the fuss is about when it comes to dating apps. Dating Apps I have always met people organically either through friends or on a night out etc. I feel like this doesn’t really happen…
