Colourful Cover-up!

Happy Tuesday!

Today it’s my best friend in the whole world’s Birthday – Have a good one Amanda!!

Another bargain from my recent Metro Centre trip is this fab summer vest/cover-up. Like the stars and stripes shorts from a previous post, this also came from Republic.

Also like the shorts, this Tri-colour top is by Soul Cal and I just adore the colours and the boho-beach vibe. The design of the top is simple but pretty and it set me back just £5, not bad considering it’s usually £18 and is still selling on other websites for this price!


Can’t wait to rock this little number..... any ideas on ways to wear this other than thrown over my bikini??

Work is going to be pretty hectic for the next few days so I’ll apologise in advance for my absence, but will be back soon with more amazing bargain buys!

Keep Smiling

Amazing Aztec!

On a whim, I decided I wanted some soft, light shorts to take on holiday to throw over my bikini. I didn’t want to pay a lot for them so decided to pop into Primark at the Metro Centre.

 These gorgeous bright Aztec print of these shorts caught my eye immediately and they are super lightweight too. The £3 price tag on these shorts is pretty amazing too! They are one of the few things from Primark you can find that look and feel a lot more expensive than they actually were.

So that was my bottom half sorted, now I needed a top half cover-up, preferably with shorts sleeves to protect my shoulders from the mid-day sun. Also in Primark, I noticed these cropped ‘boyfriend’ style t-shirts. The bright yellow one I picked out looks fab with the shorts and set me back just £3 as well!

I walked in expecting to find nothing and got exactly what I wanted for an amazing price – how often does that happen?

I have a blue vest top from George at Asda which looks fab with these shorts and my gladiator sandals too, and immediately dresses the look up too! Summer casual at its best.......

More bargains coming your way soon – watch this space J

Star Struck!

It’s almost the weekend, I just can’t wait to kick back and relax with a glass or two of wine.

As promised I have another thrifty find to report for you today.

I think these are possibly my favourite buy for a long time……..
Those of you who know me will be aware of my obsession with all things starry (I’ve even got the tattoo to prove it) add that to my obsession with gorgeous shoes and you will understand whay I am so excited over this buy.

I picked up these beauties in Deichmann in the Metro Centre. I knew I had to have them before I even checked out the price tag, I was too busy trying them on at first to notice the fact they had been reduced from £39.99 to just £9.99 which doubled my happiness when I did eventually realise!


I am soooo in love with these heels, not only are they gorgeous but they are comfy and will go with just about anything J

How gorgeous are these shoes????? I’ll be back tomorrow with another steal of a buy!

Until then keep smiling (and finding bargains!)

Stars and Stripes

Finally, I am back in the world of bargains once again!!

Last night be and my BFF headed off to the Metro Centre for a bit of much needed, post work retail therapy.
My holidays will soon be here (eeeek!) so that was the main focus of the trip. I got sooooo many fab bargains, I just can’t wait to tell you all about them!
The only downside was we only had three hours L Still I did pretty well in that time!

The first amazing bargain I want to tell you about is these amazing stars and stripes denim shorts. I got these in Republic, who are currently having a ‘closing down’ sale. I am not sure if they are closing forever or just for a re-fit which I hope is the case. Many items were less than half price and I got these SoulCal shorts for a fabulous £10!! They were originally £30 so even less than half price.


Can’t wait to wear these on holiday with my new crop tops J


I’ve got so much more to tell you about, until then, keep smiling

Sexy Skater

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Welcome to the peak of the week!
I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine?

 Yesterday I popped out to grab some lunch and couldn't resist a quick look into Select to see if they had any holiday bargains.

I spotted this hot pink skater a couple of weeks ago but didn’t buy it. Yesterday it was reduced to £4!! So of course I had to have it.

I bought a black sequinned bandeau top from select in the sale at the end of last summer with the intention of keeping it till this summer and I think it will be perfect in Majorca with this hot pink skater?

I can also wear it with my black crop top which will also be snuggled in my suitcase!
Not long to go now – Just can’t wait!

I'd love you to share with me your key holiday pieces??? And packing tips!!!

Keep smiling

Tropical Times!


I have to start my blog again today with another apology, I have been a really bad blogger of bargains recently.
There have been a few things going on which have really diverted my attention (apart from sitting in the sun drinking fizzy – I promise!)

I did however manage to nab a fabulous bargain at the weekend which I really wanted to tell you about.
I don’t often post photos of myself on here but as the girls took a few snaps of me wearing my new bargain on Saturday I thought I’d share!


I got these gorgeous trousers from Peacocks in the sale for just £5!! I couldn’t believe it, I had been looking at a similar pair the week before priced at £35!

I was instantly attracted to the bright summery print and the material is so soft too! I wasn’t sure if I could pull this style off but after a quick trip to the changing room I thought they looked ok.

In the photos I am wearing them with a black vest from Primark and sandals from River Island. The cuff was from a charity shop J


I’d love to know what you think of my bargain and I’d love some ideas of different ways to wear these trousers?

Keep smiling

Back to bargain hunting!

Hellloo!!!!! Firstly my humble apologies for being away so long!

I have been away competing in the Jim Clark International rally so no time for bargain shopping :0 but we did have an AMAZING time. Just about come down from the adrenaline buzz now!


On my lunch break today I noticed a pair of shorts I’ve had my eye on for some time from ASOS are now in the sale (don't you just love it when that happens BEFORE you've bought them!)


The have been reduced from £38.00 to £26.50 so of course I had to snap a pair up for my forthcoming Majorca break! In fact the sun is shining in the UK at the moment so I may even get to wear them at home.
I love the colouring in these shorts and the fringing makes them that little bit different.


I hope you are all well, I am busily catching up on all of your fab blog posts from the past week and replying to messages.
I’m back on the bargain hunt now, getting really excited for my holidays!!
