Constantly shopping my wardrobe | Fashion


I recently spoke to a close friend about my spending habits and she honestly nearly choked when I said "But I don't spend much on clothes". To be fair, she sees me posting pictures on Instagram and Snapchat sharing all clothes, bags and beauty etc so, I guess it comes across like I'm always buying new items. To tell you the truth, I rarely buy clothes and am a bit of a strange clothing shopper. I can't straight up go into Topshop for example and spend £50 on a dress or £45 on some jeans. I just can't part with that lump of money on a regular basis. Every now and again, I'll have a little spend, but all of which I'm very selective and clear minded with my purchases. 


So, how do I make it seem new and fresh? Well, changing up your wardrobe with the seasons allows you to feel quite fresh with the options you give yourself. If I'm starring at the same wardrobe from January through to December, I'm going to grab the same things over and over and would feel a little boring and mundane. Working in a rotation helps it to feel like you've been shopping because it might of been a whole year since you last wore that black fluffy jumper, but now your reunited, and it feels brand new.

Where do you store your second stash though? I'm lucky enough to have two wardrobes and have the one in my bedroom as my current seasonal collection, which is where I reach into every day. The second double wardrobe is in the spare room and houses everything I won't wear at the moment depending on colour palettes, texture etc. Some items are hung on a rail, but others are just folded and in storage bags until the next time I need them.

My thought process behind this method is being able to keep my spending down, but always feeling fresh and happy with the clothes I have to choose from. Some might say that this method is pretty similar to the capsule wardrobe, and I would agree that there are similarities and both do make you really think about the items you have and might need. 

 
I couldn't really get the detail in that I'd like, so depending on the response, I'll make a YouTube video to go alongside where I can show you exactly what I do and the motions of the process.

  1. I'm very selective with what I buy too. I can go ages without buying something but if I see something I absolutely love I will buy it, no matter how much it costs but I have to really think it through first.

    1. Yeah same here. I almost always put items on hold and if I'm not thinking about them after an hour of walking around other shops then I know I don't need it xo

  2. This is a great idea, would certainly provide new outfit ideas more oftenly because there is a constant change :)

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
