Savvy Style – This Is It

This is it – the moment that you’ve all been waiting for! The final scenes from the slow reveals, of my cheap-as-chips alternatives to Princess Beatrice’s floral frock, as featured in photos celebrating her recent engagement. Here goes … First, the £10 and something pence dress, ordered from Unbranded on ebay … One cannot deny…

Savvy Style – Ginger Legs

Just about to order a pair of ‘Rustic Ginger’ tights to match my hair colour. I’m also guessing that they will look fab with the £6 dress I bought from Sainsbury’s autumn sale. The very friendly lady at the til joked that it might be next summer before I could wear my bargain, but I disagree….

A Sunday Stretch

Waking up to the sun, I think I should go for a walk. But, I don’t. Instead, I bring the sun into my home and my being. To go magenta red, or mango orange? Big decision. I mix the magenta with the mango and shake. No decision needed. I emerge from pink pool at one…
