  1. Button Front Denim Skirt

    February 22, 2016 by barbara

    So recently I got myself a button front denim skirt from H&M. It has an A line shape. Do you know that the denim skirt is back in fashion. It used to be the staple of 70’s fashion. The denim skirt is so versatile and goes well with almost anything.  I think everyone should have one in their wardrobe.  What is your favourite denim skirt style?

  2. Zara Spring/Summer 2016

    February 18, 2016 by barbara

    I am so loving the latest Zara collection for Spring / Summer 2016.  I love the mustard yellow shades and I think I should get myself a few pieces of clothing in that colour.   Stripes are still around and show no sign of tapering off.

  3. Flare Jeans For 2016

    February 14, 2016 by barbara

    I have been seeing some flare jeans at the stores lately. Are they making a comeback? Are you a fan of flare jeans? Well frankly, I am not. I prefer straight cut jeans or skinny because they make me look slimmer.   When you are wearing flare jeans, it is best that you put on your heels.  Clog shoes look great with flare jeans too.

    So would you kick your skinny jeans away and opt for flares?

  7. Nail Art For The Weekend

    January 29, 2016 by barbara

    So the last few days were busy for me as I have a party to attend this weekend.   A musician friend of mine is celebrating his birthday and we have asked him what he wanted for his birthday.  He told us a few thing that he really like at GC NAMM so we have been looking around.  Besides that, I was also checking out some nail art designs as I want to paint my nails for the party this weekend.   I have narrowed it down to the ones below :-

  8. Unique Top for Women

    January 27, 2016 by barbara

    I came across this rather unique top at one of the online stores.  It is a white chiffon top with pleated collar. What caught my eye is the black collar.  I love the design of this collar.  The colour black stands out from the white top.  I am sure this top looks great with a pair of black culottes or denim.

  9. These Present Ideas Are Perfect If You’re On A Budget

    January 23, 2016 by barbara

    It’s always difficult to buy someone a gift when you’re living on a budget. Particularly if this gift is for someone you care about who you want to know means a lot to you. Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I think a lot of people are going to be dealing with this conundrum. Luckily the Thrifty Blogger is here to help you out! On this post, you’ll find some great ideas for gifts when you’re struggling to rub two coins together.

    Cheap Yet Personal

    gift1

    If you can’t afford an expensive present, you should instead look for something a little more personal. Handmade presents are a great example of this type of gift, and you can often find them online at amazing prices. Dunoon Mugs are beautifully crafted, but they are prices at under fifteen pounds. That’s incredible value and it’s the perfect gift if you want to make sure yours stands out from the rest. You can even choose the different illustrations printed on the fine bone china. It may not match the romance of Valentine’s Day, but it could be the perfect gift when Mother’s Day rolls around.

    Handmade By You

    Failing that, you may want to make the gift yourself. If you have any skill in crafts, art or writing this idea may work quite well. For instance, you could make a card or collage for the person you are getting a gift for. Or, you may want to write a poem for them. If you can’t write poems, there’s an app for that. I kid you not. You can download an app that will write a unique poem based on lines from the classics. If they Google it, they won’t find your poem anywhere on the web. Even if they do find out what you did it’s still a wonderfully romantic gesture.

    Shopping Around
    If you’re on a budget and you have a gift that’s a little too expensive in mind, shop around. Typically, you’ll find some great deals on presents, particularly around special occasions. For instance, around Valentine’s Day, you can get big boxes filled with perfume and soaps. These are great value for money and won’t break your bank account.

    Meaningful To You
    Alternately, you could look for a present that is particularly meaningful to you. This might not be an expensive present but rather a gesture of feelings. You can use a gift like this to show how much you care about someone. For instance, if you’re getting your partner a gift, you could give them a treasured family heirloom. This is a big commitment so be certain you see a future with the person before giving away something meaningful to you.

    Meaningful To Them

    Alternately you could look for a gift that is particularly meaningful to them. Perhaps they have a favourite poem? If that’s the case you can get it framed and it will make a beautiful present. Or, even song lyrics engraved on wood, could make a present they will treasure for an eternity.

    I hope you see now how many wonderful ideas there are for gifts. Even if you are dealing with a tight budget.
