Hey Macklemore, can we do some shopping?

3 Sep
THRIFTYYYYY!! I am the queen of wearing my Grandmas clothes, and other peoples Grandmas clothes.. and taking charity shop clothes (Proabably from a Grandma). 
 
My nan has always bought good clothes and beautiful designer pieces, and over the years she has allowed me to borrow some clothes and sometimes given me a few of her pieces, and I loveeee working them! My friends have also enjoyed wearing pieces and showing me how to work pieces that I felt were unworkable!! We bounce of each other its so great. 
 
So here are my tips and tricks to finding the diamonds in a Charity Shop..
 
  1. Look for old designers, the items last longer and have a good wear and tear with a vintage feel. 
  2. Don’t just look for your size, some things can look cool baggier, and the sizes can be all over the place, you may surprise yourself and fit in a smaller size!
  3. If you have time, look for things that need a slight edit. You could get some vintage jeans that are too short, and cut them into shorts. You could also do a dress in slightly or change the buttons on a shirt.
  4. Look through the handbags, I have managed to find some great overnight bags (normally they are really expensive in high street shops), I have got some great quality ones of nice patterns and vintage ones for as cheap as a pound!
  5. Always look through the jewellery – accessories are everything.
 
I love my local charity shop its soo cheep and amongst me and my friends and mum have spent hundreds there over the past couple years. Even getting suitcases, furniture and books too! 
 
Get thrift peeps. xxxx

22 Jul

Ollay Ollay It’s a happy holiday!

Destinations_Header_Orlando

So I’m out in Florida, and wanted to back track a little and share my holiday essentials! I don’t know about you but a few days before holiday (Friday at work for me) I start to panic and right a whole list out of things I need to remember for my holiday. I write everything from Hair clips to Bras to what shoes I wanna take. Then as I am packing I try on all my outfits to minimalist my suitcase ( I always plan to leave enough room for some buys while out wherever I am) !
SO this holiday is a hot one.. my list included all the sunglasses and what not.. the usual but I wanted to share with you extras!! !
First.. I bought Dove Gradual Tan Moisturiser! I’ll let you know how that goes.. I normally use Johnsons.

I bought a new serum called ‘Inhibitif’ which is meant to make your hair growth less and less until one day you could permanently not have any hair on whatever part you choose to apply the cream (I thought going on a mission this would be fab as I need to have my legs out every day in a skirt! ) , It’s the new alternative to all these expensive IPL sessions and what not.
 (I’ve started a blog on this so watch out ! 🙂 )

I also went to TK Maxx (WHICH I HATE – SUCH A JUMBLE SALE) , and bought a cute one piece swimsuit for the water parks we might go to when we are out there. – Don’t wanna flash my bits. So happy that  managed to find something!

 

 

Check these one pieces on ASOS.. in love.. if I had more time def would have ordered some of these!!

I haven’t got much spare dollar at the moment but I also bought some make up and bits and bobs of shoes. (Will do separate blog for make up).

 

 

My new FAV pair of heels are these red ones from New Look, I love this stroppy style and I totes want them in every single colour!!! I love them.

They are 17.99 in store atm!

 

You can also get them from ebay, and loads of high street shops sell them atm. (New Look is just what was in town).

 

 

Holiday essentials that I hadn’t invested in but were a MUST take are my Fringe top – perfect summery feel.

Flat Sandals and Yankee Candles

3 Jul

Soooo.. two things that have been playing on my mind and they rhyme! So why not.. ha!

So England finally feels like its warming up (bar today and yesterday) – we are expected a heatwave this weekend WOOO! Hope the rest of the world are enjoying just as much sun. So first off.. I needed some new Flat Sandals and I don’t know why.. but I am SOOO fussy with them, I look everywhere and never seem to find THE ONES yano.

I’m on a budget, and New Look is just in town for me from work – and I found some results! I ended up buying the nude coloured metal bar sandals which were a BARG, but check some other styles I really like. I love the metal mix – so included my ones, some ones with Spike Charms (IN LOVE WITH THESE) and also I quite like the look of these tie up ones!

If I had the legs, or my name was Kourtney Kardashian, I would be all over wearing some of her famous high gladiator sandals. Does anyone know where you can get some of these?

Anyway #dailyrubies on instagram and show me YOUR summer sandals.!!

 

And just a conclusion, there is nothing better than a bubble bath in the dark with candles and check out these new flavours that Yankee has introduced! I am particularly interested in the Salted Caramel (my fav type of choc :P) .. so get on the webby and buy buy buy!
