What I spend in a week #4

I’m still obsessed with Refinery 29 money diaries and I totally want to be on one. Life goals right there.

I asked on my Instagram stories whether people would rather read what I spend in a week or what I eat in a week and it was a huge percentage towards spend so basically you are all as nosy as I am and I’m totally OK with that. I thought I’d kick this off in June and start from a Saturday where I’m more likely to actually spend something! Grab a cuppa and have a lil’ read.

7 bargain midi skirts your wardrobe will thank you for

Midi skirts used to give me nightmarish flash backs of my old school kilt that was absolutely huge, scratchy and not at all cute. Why did everyone else’s kilt actually fit them and the school shop lady thought I was apparently about 20 stone heavier than I was? No idea but it was horrific.

What I spend in a week #3

Spending and budgeting are probably one of my most talked about subjects. I’ve always been careful with money so love to dole out (lectures) advice where I can and I always monitor my monthly spending.

I love reading these posts on Refinery29 because I’m super nosy and just love to see what people spend their money on!
