I thought I’d do a little post on how I like to shop and how you can shop with me. I know it seems a bit random but bare with me and you’ll get the gist! My favourite place to get inspo on what to buy is to look at my favourite fashion bloggers – yes, believe it or not, as a fashion blogger I still get inspo from other bloggers. Some of my favourites are Emma Hill, Monikh Dale and Hannah Crosskey go and check them out now! Wellll, actually, maybe you could just finish reading my post and check them out afterwards . . So basically, when I want to buy something new, you know when you’re in the mood to shop, you’ve got money in your bank account for once, and the internet is just a sea of possibilities – too many possibilities. This is when I look to my fave’s, if you haven’t got the time or the patience to scroll through so many different websites I always look at what they’ve been blogging about and obviously as instagram is an ever inspiring page for making me spend I love looking at their liketoknow.it pages – more on this in a minute. Take these sandals for example, I saw these whilst I was strolling the streets of London, happily minding my own business slash stalking on instagram. When Hannah posted a picture of these amazing chloe dupes (see the chloe ones here) proclaiming they were only £24.99 from Mango . . off I went to Mango, no luck – clicked on her liketoknow.it and there they were, sitting in my basket- at the checkout – in my hands. It’s almost too easy! Shop With Me on Liketoknow.it So liketoknow.it I’ve been using for a while now – both as an influencer and as a consumer. I can therefore give you all of the insight! I’ve made a little diagram of how it works below to show you more simply! But basically, you sign up at liketoknow.it – I’m pretty sure you only have to put in your name and email then confirm – it’s not a long ass form asking what your mums first pet was called. Then once you’ve signed up, it links your instagram to your email, so that if you liked say, my instagram picture, and I’ve linked it to my liketoknow.it then you’ll get an email with links to where everything I’m wearing’s from and you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you can browse these emails at your leisure! BUT if you don’t want these emails you can go to my liketoknow.it page www.liketoknow.it/sineadcrowe and all of my insta pictures will be listed with the products below – the same as on the email example but in a long list! Now, I know some of you hate the idea of this as I’ve heard many a time that the emails bother you – personally I like being able to browse them and keep them for payday but each to their own. So, for all you haters out there…

Head to Toe for Under £50

Yes, you read that right. I got this whole outfit (minus the jacket) for under £50. So that jacket isn’t included but it’s just a finishing touch and are you seriously saying that a top, skirt, shoes and sunglasses isn’t enough, there’s just no pleasing some people! The Joy of Supermarket Shopping – An outfit under £50 Supermarket shopping (for clothes) is something that is seriously underrated. I guess by now you’ll have realised that this look is from a supermarket, Tesco’s to be specific and their F&F range. Personally, I think the idea of being able to buy your bananas and clothing in the same shop is as off-putting to me as it is appealing to a Mum of 3 with no spare time. I mean, us fashionistas would never be seen at the checkout of our local Tesco’s with a top in hand. . would we? If I’m totally honest – in the past I have been known to be quite the supermarket shopper and I’m not just talking socks, pants and pjs. When you can get an outfit for under £50 why on earth wouldn’t you be? Choosing Key Pieces When I do go supermarket clothes shopping, I like to stick to a few rules if you like. I feel like this outfit truly is an exception though, because I would never normally advise going head to toe, though it’s obviously something that can be done! Firstly, when I buy from F&F, I tend to go for pieces that I know I won’t be wearing day in day out. You can’t pay £10 for a top and expect it to last you a lifetime. This is why I like to go for more trend led pieces that I know I’ll only want for a season. If they last longer, great, if they don’t? They’ve done the job they were destined for! I was kindly gifted a £50 voucher to pick something to style up, when I started looking I found everything I wanted for under £50 and even managed to treat myself to a pair of socks. I was so shocked! I mean, I knew it was cheap but this is just something else! Shop Online Firstly, I’ll let you into a little tip i’ve discovered. You can get you’re bits delivered to store for free, and that can be any Tesco’s store – including the little Tesco metros! They don’t have to sell clothes. Shopping online is the way forward for me, depending on where you live you’ll be lucky to find anything you see in the lookbooks and ad’s in Elle Magazine etc in your local Tesco. I live in a small town and my nearest city is Peterborough – not exactly the fashion capital of the UK, I’d say they’re selling more crocs and velour tracksuits than what I’m after! Sorry if you’re from Peterborough but you know it’s true. Tell me now – have I changed your mind on supermarket shopping!? *Jacket : Fashion Bazaar *Top : F&F @ Tesco *Skirt : F&F @ Tesco *Sandals : F&F @…

The Colour Of Blue

There’s something about the colour of blue, particularly a blue and white colour combo that’s got me head over heels and pretty penniless recently.

I feel like to me, it’s a colour without being a colour . . this particular pastel pale shade of blue is just the perfect amount of colour for my minimal wardrobe. It pretty much goes with everything and put together with white makes the most perfect spring combo. Shop The Colour Of Blue You can use my collage to shop my obsession!

How To Nail Mothers Day

I genuinely feel bad for the Dad’s of the world because Mum’s are just so much easier to buy gifts for. When Mothers day rolls around I’m spoilt for choice. Being the handy andy that I am, I thought I would lend a helping hand with some of my top picks for this mothers day. I am a born gift giver, if I know and love someone, I’m amazing at buying gifts for them – people may be reading this and thinking no your not, particularly my boyfriend who said my gifts were ‘quirky’. I went through a stage of not having a lot of money and a lot of my gifts were homemade, I say thoughtful he says quirky. Potato, patata. Anyway, I love buying gifts, so therefore I must be good at it no? *Mug : Amara This cup is honestly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! So I know mugs can be a pretty generic Mothers day gift but I feel like nice one’s don’t come under the generic umbrella, it’s reserved for mugs with best Mum ever written across the front. Who wouldn’t feel like a million dollars drinking from this? They do one with the eye’s open too, could make a cute little set, just saying . . Candle : Diptyque // *Book : Amara // Hand Cream : L’Occitane // Perfume : Jo Malone In my opinion, smellies are KING. Smelly candles, perfume, smelly hand cream – obviously I mean good smelly! My boyfriend got me this candle for Valentines and I have to admit, I’ve not quite got my full use of it for flatlay purposes to start burning it. I can tell you from enthusiastically sticking my nose against the wax and sniffing that I know it’s going to be a dream. Mums love candles, candles love Mums, the end. This L’Occitane hand cream is divine, the smell is incredible, is it sad that it’s my special hand cream that I don’t use everyday? Any form of pampering will always go down a treat, after all, Mothers day is about Mums relaxing! Coffee table books, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, what woman doesn’t love a beautifully presented hard back book? If not to read, just to look pretty on the coffee table coffee table books are a ‘thing’ you know? This one’s all about hosting and with motherhood comes the position of hostess, she needs this. *Vase : Amara  // *Book : Amara // Lip Balm : Chanel Flowers are an old friend you can always rely on for Mothers day gifts, only good flowers mind you! None of this petrol station carnations nonsense! I’m talking roses, peonies, orchids . . what are her favourites?! Do you know what’s even better than flowers? flowers in a vase, something that smells beautiful and looks beautiful, and something lovely to keep! I love the size of this one, it’s not exactly a bunch of flowers vase though! Dip dye and pastels are so my thing right now, or would be if I had…
