Suits You #2

Hello and welcome to this months Suits You challenge where this time I am picking an outfit for the lovely Patty from What Patty Difusa Loves.

I love Patty's style and having looked through her blog I know she is quite the fan of dresses and has a fantastic style. (I have also had the pleasure of meeting her at Plus North last year and she is lovely!).

So here we go!


I decided to go with a swing dress as I think Patty would look amazing in this one from Asos Curve with its gorgeous paisley print. To go with it I have chosen accessories from New Look to create a summer outfit that is ideal for the warmer weather.

I hope Patty likes what I have chosen as I think she would totally rock this outfit and look fabulous.

June Instagram Round Up

Hello and happy Wednesday we are halfway through the week and it has been hot, hot hot!!

I thought I would do a quick round up of the best of my Instagram pictures from June, which saw me celebrate my birthday and get a long overdue haircut!





I apologise in advance if the blog is quieter at the moment, but due to working longer hours, school holidays and the hot weather I don't have as much time and my mojo has wandered off!!

I am also gearing up for Outfit August which has been organised by the lovely Leah from Just Me Leah so I am holding back a few bits which I haven't blogged yet but should be on the blog next month.

Enjoy your week and stay safe in the sunshine!!

Money saving Monday #3

Hello and welcome to another Money Saving Monday!

At the moment I am trying not to buy anything apart from the essential things that I actually need so I thought I would share with you some of the budget buys I have come across just lately.

DermaV10 Cocoa Body Butter


I mentioned this on a recent YouTube video that I did, but I love it so much that it deserves another mention! I buy this in the pound shop but you can also find it in Home Bargains as well and it is amazing! I have had the Body Shop body butters in the past which are not cheap and I would say that this is just as good. I use it on my feet to help with dry skin, as an aftersun and on my legs after shaving them.


I do most of my food shopping in Aldi and spotted this coconut shampoo and conditioner on my last trip for less than a pound each so decided to try them. I do still keep a purple shampoo to hand but in between washes I use these and I can't fault them. They smell lovely and leave my hair clean and soft.

Another pound shop find, I have a husband who is rather fussy when it comes to shower gel (his favourite being dove) but even he loves this stuff! It smells amazing, lathers really well and leaves my skin soft and doesn't dry it out.

Finally yet another pound shop purchase as I find other high street stores charge ridiculous amounts for cotton wool pads. After buying these I then found a pack of 200 in Aldi for less than a pound so it pays to shop around and not to assume that the pound shop is always the cheapest option!

I love scouring the shelves of the Pound shop and Home Bargains for budget beauty buys and you never know what you might find!! 

If you are looking for alternatives to cotton wool pads the lovely Leah from Just Me Leah recently reviewed some eco cleansing pads click here for a look at them.

Shop Your Stash #3


Hello and welcome to this months Shop Your Stash Post. I have been feeling the heat over the last few days as I am sure many of you have and at times have almost been reduced to a sweaty puddle! I find dressing for the heat hard sometimes and I have reached a point now where comfort for me is the main thing I consider when finding something to wear.

I had a spuddle through my stuff and here is what I came up with.






With the exception of the denim jacket and I think the necklace, everything else is either from last year or even older than that!!
I picked these trousers up last summer in BHS from their swimwear/beach range and they are fab, a lovely soft jersey and they keep me really cool. I must admit these are my current favourite lounge around the house trousers as well!!!

Outfit Details
Denim Jacket Primark
Vest H&M old
Trousers BHS last year
Sandals Store 21 two years old!
Necklace Sister Vintage
