I wouldn’t have said I was obsessed with shoes or trainers, but while I was sorting out my wardrobe recently, I realised I owned a hell of a lot more pairs than I thought I did and some that I’d completely forgotten I even owned 😬😬 As it was obvious I wasn’t going to ever wear a lot of them again, I decided to get rid of a load; to charity, to the tip and on Depop!
Until I met J, I wasn’t very good with saving money on anything. I used to stick to the same companies year on year for my insurance, mobile and internet providers because I was too lazy to switch. I’d also buy the same products all the time, not even looking at whether there was a cheaper alternative.
I’m now completely reformed and consider myself to be pretty savvy, so I thought I’d start a new series on my blog – Money Saving Tips!
To be honest, there’s nothing more exciting than being invited for food, especially when it happens to be at the newly opened The Ivy In The Lanes*, in Ship Street, Brighton. I’ve seen a few pics from the opening night and I couldn’t wait to go and see it for myself!!
How in the hell is April over already?? It’s definitely been another blink and you’ll miss it month. Plus we’ve had such random weather extremes, it’s been hard to keep up!!
A few months ago, Rosie, Katie and myself were discussing ideas on where to go after we’d had our fun day out at Wood’s in Worthing. We knew that we definitely wanted something food related and somewhere pretty for loads of cute outfit shots!!
Sometimes I absolutely can’t help myself. I’m a bit of a lucky giveaway winner, I seem to win a lot and I don’t know why. I’m also quite lucky at raffles too, just ask Áine 😂😂 So I’ve put myself on a bit of a ban entering giveaways, especially as I own so many products that I barely use already.
Last week, on 12th April, J and I celebrated the fact that I’d moved into his house a whole four years ago (okay, I noticed because FB reminded me, I mentioned it to J and we hugged it out!!) It’s been an interesting journey of discovery as I’d never lived with a boyfriend before and he’d never had anyone properly living with him in his house!
I rarely venture out as far as Hove for food, despite knowing there are some absolute gems when it comes to great places to eat with Instagrammable décor, mostly because it’s almost an hour away by bus for me and I’m pretty lazy! But, when Sammy, Jess, Tania and I were chatting about meeting up for brunch, I was happy to let them choose somewhere to go, because I know they know all the best spots! Sammy suggested Hixon Green so we made a plan to meet up.
March has been a bit of a “blink and you’ll miss it” month. It’s also been a bit rubbish if I’m being honest. I feel like my blog is lacking direction at the moment and I don’t know where to take it. I’ve barely blogged at all 🙁 I’ve also not really felt myself and at the beginning of the month I lacked any motivation, boooo!
If you’ve seen me moaning on Insta stories about my face recently, you might know that I’ve had a weird problem with my right cheek for a while. I just couldn’t get my foundation to sit nicely on it, but now that I’m using a new skin care routine, it’s got a lot better. This means I’ve been able to wear full on make-up again 😀😀 which makes me very happy because, sometimes, it’s just nice to stick on some make-up and feel your absolute best, even if you’re super tired or so over Monday already and it’s not even 9 am yet!!
