Describe yourself in four words?
Enthusiastic, fun, clumsy, caring.
When did you begin your blog and why?
I started my blog in 2011, however I really focussed on it in 2014 when I was home on maternity leave and a bit bored. I was breastfeeding and wasn’t happy with the normal ‘nursing’ wear options so started looking for affordable clothing options in the regular shops and sharing my finds. I’ve always been interested in fashion and shopping.
Who are your beauty and style inspirations?
I get lots of inspo from everyday women. As for ‘celebs’ I love Audrey Hepburn and Rhianna in particular. I love the classics but I also love when people stretch the boundaries a bit too.
What is your most worn piece in your wardrobe?
Apart from my sandals and sunnies, it’s my denim shorts and a shirt dress.
Your blog has a focus on fashion under $100, do you ever splurge and go above that?
I do, if it’s a classic item I know I’ll wear a lot, but I still tend to buy when it’s on sale, or wait for a discount code!
If I gave you $300 to spend on one thing, what would you buy?
A night in a hotel to get a good sleep (haha!) or in terms of clothes/shoes etc I’d buy a new pair of sunnies or pop on eBay or Gumtree and grab a designer piece for half the price—an Hermes silk scarf is at the top of my list.
What has been your best wardrobe bargain of all time?
I’ve found a lot of bargains op shopping—a vintage Burberry trench is one of my best—but I don’t wear it often so it’s not really a bargain. I’d say at the moment it’s my Target denim shorts which I wear weekly and they cost $29.
Favourite colour for Summer?
All shades of yellow!
What are the Top 5 things you can’t leave home without?
Water, lip balm, phone, sunnies and baby wipes.
What’s your ideal way to spend a Sunday?
Sleep in (hah!), coffee with friends at the markets, sunny times at the park our little ones, a movie at home then that night, Thai takeaway and some drinks with the hubby.
What are your hopes for 2018?
I hope to make more memories with my family, continue blogging and make time to catch up with more friends.
