If I had all the Money in the World…

…would I still live frugally? Yes I would. I like my life, there are very few things I would change about it and even then sometimes the things you wish you could change are things money can’t buy anyway. I honestly don’t feel that buying more things or upgrading the things that I do currently…

Big Travelling Expenses

Once upon a time my biggest travelling expense (aside from airfares and accommodation of course) would definitely have been shopping. And by shopping I mean clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories and makeup. You name it, I bought it. Whilst I still love to shop when I travel because I enjoy buying items I can’t get at…

So…I Bought Something

A few nights ago I bought something online that I didn’t technically ‘need’, it was a want and I haven’t splurged like that on myself in a while. For those of you who are wondering it’s a faux fur shawl/stole that can be worn over pretty much anything. I went through every outfit in my…

But it’s Designer?

I have some items in my life I just haven’t been able to bring myself to get rid of. Because they’re designer. These are expensive items that because they have a certain label attached I find difficult to let go of because of the branding- even though I’ve barley worn them. Case in point, I…

On Sunday, I baked

I don’t bake very often, I’m more of a cook as opposed to a baker. However on this particular Sunday I made a (gluten and dairy free) cake from scratch- that’s right there was no packet mix in sight! When I was younger I would never use a packet mix to bake anything, however since…

Kanopy- Netflix but Free!

Has anyone else ever heard of a platform called Kanopy? When I first stumbled across it my first through was ‘what on earth is this?’ But despite the unusual name, it’s actually an extremely awesome concept. I like to describe it as free Netflix. Essentially it’s an app you can download to your smart TV/Apple…

My Pantry Dinner

In a previous post, I wrote about shopping your pantry first and using up what you have before buying any new items or ingredients from the supermarket- you can check in out here.  I felt this was an appropriate time to bring that post up again as tonight my significant other had plans so I…

Beauty Savings

My mum recently treated herself and had her nails done professionally (I can’t remember the last time I paid for a manicure it’s too expensive for me). Anyway, earlier this week it got to the point where she had to have the gel polish removed. Now where I live, to have gel polish removed probably…

Making the Most of a Bad Experience

As a gift, my boyfriend bought us tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate factory (the stage show/musical) which is currently playing. As this was something I’d been wanting to see, I was ecstatic. On paper (literally because he’d printed off the tickets) he’d bought me the perfect present. Not only was it something I…

The Cost of Safety

I recently had to meet family in the city. Now it’s a long story but we weren’t all able to go together, which meant that I had to make my own way there, at night. Based on previous experiences I don’t feel overly safe walking around the CBD on my own in the dark, let…
