    Second Hand Bargain Shopping in Headingley, Leeds

    This month is #SecondHandSeptember, which means we should try where possible to buy used products in vintage and charity shops. Have you made any conscious decisions to reduce your consumption of new things? I find it really hard not to buy new things but I’m happy for them to be second hand, it doesn’t bother me. Maybe not everything, but you get the jist. If I can save £5 buying a book that’s only been read once before, for one I’ll most likely also only read once, it’s a bargain. Buying second hand clothes has other benefits than being cheaper than on the high street. You’re most likely going to…

  • How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

    How My Hair Grew 3 cm in a Month

    Have you ever come out of the hair dressers with your hair a lot shorter than you anticipated or asked for? I have and it makes me cry!! During my recent hairdresser visit, I was the one who asked for something different to what we normally do. I asked for short hair. I did however not ask for such short hair that I got so started crying on my way home. As the Brit I now am, I didn’t have the heart to say at the hairdressers. I was lucky my hair was long enough to tie back whilst undergoing a fast hair growth regime. For anyone else who’d like…

  • Tesalate Beach Towel

    How I’m Getting Beach Body Ready

    Summer is around the corner, or at least I hope so. The weather has been very up and down lately, not being able to make up its mind. The Easter bank holiday weekend was glorious and I hope that sun and heat will come back. I want the heat wave summer we had last year. I have prepped my body for it! When warmer weather comes, I can comfortably walk around in light clothes and tan wearing only a bikini on the beach balcony or outside on the grass. Yes, loosing weight and toning up at the gym has definitely helped but there are products out there to help you get…

  • Customised Vintage Sideboard

    Giving My Living Room a Vintage Feel

    Finally my living room feels complete. Two new pieces of furniture has been added to give my living room a vintage feel. Both compliment the existing pieces of furniture. The customised vintage sideboard bridges the white bookcase, white coffee table and brown kitchen table as it’s a mix of brown and white. The lamp adds a new pop of colour but also match the sideboard with it’s old rose coloured tassels. It’s incredible what a difference couple of changes can make. I’m really pleased with the final result. Customised Vintage Sideboard I bought the sideboard from MadebyraphaelDesign who I found via his Instagram. I was so pleased that this sideboard…

  • Simply Be Outfit

    The Perfect Fashion Fit with Simply Be

    It feels like a while since I shared outfit photos with you, but in blog post time, it was only two or so uploads ago. Since then, I’ve been investing in more new clothes to fit my “new” body. I’m in need of more trousers but I’ve ordered jumpers and bought underwear. Yep, I’ve lost two cup sizes and I’m not complaining. They’re still big but less in your face. I’ve also kindly been sent some clothes from Simply Be* to help renew my wardrobe. I’ve previously only owned underwear from them before and personally knowing them as a bigger size brand, I wasn’t sure their clothes would fit me.…
