Now I don’t know how authorised I am to give you this kind of information, not being such a savvy shopper myself and all that! But what I do know is that these are simple steps that honestly help you and don’t take much time or effort to impliment… you can thank me later! Use Cash I find it really hard to budget when I’m shopping and generally loose all sense of what’s in my bank account. I do check what’s there before I go out but purely so I don’t face the embarrassment of my card being declined, not so I have enough to buy dinner that evening. Clearly I’d rather have the shoes and eat super noodles (we all know I eat whats in Sue Crowe’s cupboards – love you Mum). Anyway, what I sometimes do and you should definitely do, is check my bank before I go and withdraw the amount I can spend in cold hard cash. I’m telling you now when you see the pot going down with every purchase you soon think twice! Impulse buys will be a thing of the past – maybe not the sweets at the checkout though, they always get me! Do Your Research Online I know you want to buy the ~insert product you NEED here~ right now but take a minute to utilise the world wide web and you could save yourself a few pounds. Seriously guys, it adds up! I have to admit I personally find this a hard one to remember but it’s so easy to do and really helps! Do your research! A savvy shopper use’s deal sites, there’s so many to choose from and even if you just type in the store and ‘discount code’ into google you might find something! There’s so many different offers available out there like this discount code for Pink Boutique and if you can’t find anything then try the sit and wait game. If you leave the pieces you’re after in your virtual basket for a couple of hours (if you can manage the wait), brands often send you a gentle reminder via email, hopefully with a little discount code to tempt you! Will you wear it? Use the 3 times rule Before you buy it, visualise how you’ll wear it. If you can’t think of 3 different occasions/ways you’ll wear the item then you don’t need it! A savvy shopper never buys something they’ll then have to buy more things to style it with, that is one hell of a big no no! I’m someone who likes to make my wardrobe really work for me so even though this may be your absolute worst nightmare, I have pieces I can wear for day, night and work. I like to stick to separates that can be mixed and matched to create different looks, dressing them up or down! Use Online Beauty Retailers I know it’s hard when you’re in store and your favourite foundation that you just ran out of is right there, but being…

SheInside Christmas Wishlist

Jumper // Jeans // Boots // Black Bag // Grey Bag // Coat I’ve been clever and made the pictures clickable again, slowly but surely I’m turning into a tech savvy goddess. I’ve put together a little wish list (always a pleasure) of my top things from Sheinside. They have the biggest selection so it’s almost impossible to see everything but after a mere 5 minutes of browsing I’d already decided on a full outfit I needed including two bags.. one is never enough! I know it’s quite late now and christmas is a matter of days away but I’m happy with an IOU if it includes these beauty’s and hey, a few unsubtle hints never hurt anybody. Loving the colour of the pinky/brown jumper and you can never have too many pairs of ripped jeans.. honestly that phrase works for anything because I also believe you can never have too many knits and never have too many pairs of shoes. Whatever you need to do to justify a purchase! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ for more christmas inspo and plenty of new and exciting stuff next year!

How to Nail Christmas Gifting for Men

Unlike other years I’m actually nearly done and dusted with Christmas shopping, which is a miracle considering my boyfriends birthday’s on the 16th of December, such a nightmare! So for those of you that haven’t even though about Christmas shopping yet, what are you thinking?! I’ve put together a little gift guide for some Christmas gifting inspiration! I had to put a ban on spending because I love buying presents and could just keep buying and spending all of my pennies! Anyway, I’ve put together a little gift guide boutique for you to shop so I hope some of you find this helpful because personally I think men are the worst to buy for, like impossible! I actually found some pretty good bits though for all price points so let me know if this is helpful and you find the perfect gift!! Don’t forget to let me know if and what you buy! And as always, make sure you follow me on Bloglovin’ if you aren’t already!!
