Rome Travel Dairy






Back in the beginning of May. Myself and my friend Alex took a trip to Rome for 3 nights for her birthday. If you have been reading my blog this year you will know that Italy has quickly become one of my favourite places to travel recently. We had a great time in Rome and I would highly recommend a trip if you have not been yet. The weather was super hot too...which meant we did need the odd chill out break during the day for ice cream and aspiral spritzer because we did a lot of walking! 

Rome has many big sites that are must see's.  I've been to a fair few different cities in Europe and I would say that Rome is one of the busiest especially in touristy areas so I would bear that in mind if you are planning a trip. The best way to get around Rome is the Metro we got a three day pass which I believe was 18 euros! Much cheaper than travelling around London. It was so easy to get around which is always a good thing when you are in a new city. 

In a way Rome gave me a similar feeling to New York on my first visit, I know they are completely different cities but I've seen all the sites so often in photographs and on TV, so it felt really exciting to finally get to see them in person.  The Colosseum and Roman Forum are two must sees. A good tip is to book guided tours for these, we booked ours on the day outside the Colosseum you will see lots of people walking around offering you different deals. I can't remember now what company we booked ours with, but it was a great tour and you can barter them down with the price too.

One of the best things about Italy is the food...I mean that's the main reason I visit Italy. We went to an amazing food market called Mercato Testaccio. (Their website is here.) They have 100s of fresh food stalls. I had pasta and a beer for about 6 euros, and I have to say I think it was one of the best pasta's I've ever had! I brought some pasta and pasta sauce home with me, I'm actually really gutted I didn't buy more as it was so tasty. The best way to get over those holiday blues is by bringing food back home with you!

Just like Milan we found an area just outside of the centre of Rome for food and drinks. (I'm so bad as I didn't write the name down, however just make sure you always go just outside of the city centre to discover some cute bars and quieter areas, which are much more affordable for food and drinks!)

I now really want to plan another trip to Italy next year...any recommendations would be great! 

Love

What I'm looking forwards to this Summer






Dress The End Boutique Ruislip | Shoes (Random boutique in Rome I can't remember the name sorry!) | Bag Aspinal of London Sale! 

Hi Guys, I hope you are all well and having a good weekend!  

It's finally really hot in London! I really do love Summer, and I'm so excited to be wearing my summer clothes this year. I spoke in my last post here about Summer accessories and mentioned formal occasions for the Summer. So to lead on nicely from that post I wanted to share a little outfit that I think would be perfect for a formal occasion. 

When it comes to shopping, unless I really need something in particular like a new pair of jeans because my old ones are really worn. I never really have something in mind that I want to buy, I just look and see what I find. This way there is no stress involved! And I always trend to find really good things for future occasions. For example I picked up this dress from my local boutique months ago with no idea where/when I would wear it but knew it would be great for something that I would plan in the summer. I find this way when an occasion comes up instead of quickly ordering loads of stuff on ASOS beforehand I normally have something in my wardrobe that I can wear. 

Now moving on from my outfit I wanted to talk about the things I'm really looking forwards to this Summer, I like reading these posts myself as they give me ideas of things to do myself. 

Med Sailors! 

Next Saturday I'm off on my first ever solo trip and also my first sailing holiday with Med Sailors, I'm so so excited. I can't wait to have my own mini adventure and just be by myself for a week and met lots of new people. I'm off to Croatia, I've been before once but this time I'm off to completely different places. I will be updating on my instagram everyday with posts and stories of how I'm getting on. 

 BBQ's 

I love BBQ's and luckily my mum has a big garden and is always having people round, I feel like Summer gets people together more and I just love being outdoors and in the fresh air. It really does make you feel good! 

London

I live just outside of London, but I really do make the most of living so close. There are so many places to go and things to do in London. One area I spent a lot of time in last Summer was Paddington, I used to work around that area and they have some super cute places to go to. My favourite being Pergola on the roof.

Another place I love is Maddison's in St Pauls, the view is amazing from the bar. 

I will probably book onto an outdoor cinema too, I love these. And they have a loads in and around london. However I'm going to have to try and find someone new to go with as my friend I normally go with has said she will not come again as the last time it rained! 

Going for picnics 

Summer is a time for being outside and I love going for picnics, it's one of my favourite things to do. My favourite spot is Primrose Hill, it's such a lovely area and you get an amazing view of London. 

Setting up my own business 

The most exciting one out of them all! I'm setting up my own business at the moment which will be ready to be launched in the middle of July. My new business is a homeware and interior website, I'm found some amazing gems to add to your home. It's called Nicki Knox's which is a nickname my nan gave me when I was a young child. I'm just in the process of getting up the website now and started to get my stock this week. The website will be live when I arrive back from my holiday so I will share the website address with you all then! But for now you can check out my instagram page here

Hope you all enjoyed this post! 

Love

Summer Accessories


Dress Chi Chi London | Bag Dune (also have the matching shoes) | Fascinator TKMax 


Dress The End Boutique Ruislip 


Heels independant store in Rome (can't remember the name sorry!)


Bag Aspinal of London | Ring C.S Bedford | Watch Cartier

I feel like we make any excuse in the summer to get dressed up, the sun comes out it lifts are moods and makes us want to wear a nice outfit! Plus it's a time for so many different occasions giving us so many reasons to get dressed up. (Weddings, royal ascot, holidays etc!)

This year I'm trying to have a more savvy when it comes to shopping and I want to save more money too. As much as I love spending money on shopping I want to save for a house, travel more etc. That's where accessories come in handy. You can completely change your whole outfit with accessories. Mix and matching accessories with new items or clothes you already have in your wardrobe. Meaning you don't have to spend £££s on buying a new outfit head to toe.

For the last couple of years at Royal Ascot...first couple of pictures above. I have worn the same bag and shoes! But with a different dress each time making the outfit look completely different. I've switch up my fascinators each time too. This is one accessory I never want to spend much money on because I only wear fascinators about once a year. My cream fascinator I managed to pick up in TKMax for £5.99! Which I was extremely happy about, to be honest I wasn't looking for one at the time when I went shopping in there. It was just one of those things I saw by the till and knew I had to buy for a future occasion. And the navy fascinator I managed to borrow from a friend. So it's always worth looking in the discounted stores, online sales or asking a friend for those accessories you will only wear on a one off occasion.

When it comes to heels, I love something that's a little bit different with a statement but will go with loads and loads of outfits! I picked these up from Rome back in May and they are the perfect summer heels. And because they are light pink they can be worn with most colours.

If you follow me on instagram (@nicolecoltman) you will know I love metallic colours. Metallic bags can make any outfit stand out. Again like with shoes I like to buy bags that will go with multiple outfits, and I always seem to buy good clutch bags in the sale! I think this one was about £25!

When it comes to buying accessories you should look at what you already have in your wardrobe so you can pre-plan outfits in your head before you make your purchases. As you can see I love pink and pink goes with a lot of my clothes. And I love bold prints too along with plain lace dresses. Once you can spot you running theme it's easier to make smarter purchases and get the most out of your accessories.

I hope you enjoyed this post! How do you feel about summer Accessories?

Love

Trying to have a more minimalistic lifestyle







Dress Miss Selfridges | Shoes ASOS

Something I spoke about in my Dear Dairy: May 2019 post was having a more minimalistic lifestyle. I have started to read Anna's book An Edited Life. Which I'd highly recommend if you want to become more organised and 'edit' parts of your life. As Anna puts it 'An Edited life' will help you to declutter every aspect of your life, at work and at home and spend more time doing what make you happy. I'd found this book really helpful to get started with trying to create a minimalistic lifestyle.

And below is what I've done to get started, I'll try and add an update in a few months or so to let you guys know how I'm getting on.

Getting my dairy organised 

One of my main weakness is not having a clear and organised dairy. I buy a pretty pink new dairy every year use it for the first couple of weeks in January and then never pick it up again! This is something I want to change, and I personally don't like the Apple calendar.  One of the calendar's Anna recommended which I've been using is BusyCal, it's £4.99 on the app store. And I love it! You can add in any events, things you have planned etc.  But the best part of this app is that you have the option to add an alarm. (I use this for workouts!) You can also add notes and locations, (I find this bit super helpful because I often have to scroll through my emails to find address of where I am going, but this way everything is saved together!) Also by having all your plans clear in front of you this can help to stop stress/over planning things. I find that I'm that girl who makes too many plans then I get stress about having no time to do this. But this calendar can defiantly help reduce this.

Clearing out my room (This needs three sections, general, make-up and wardrobe.)

1. General 

I try my very best to have a general clear out of my room every few months, however this time I went BIG! I was really ruthless, and anything I haven't use or looked at in the last 6 months went either into a rubbish bag for the dump or a car boot bag. (I do love a good old car boot sale). I find that I used to have a LOT of stuff in my room, little trinkets a huge pile of magazines and books I've not touched in years and just general things you collect over time and wonder why the hell you brought them in the first place. Now my room looks so much clearer and I feel so much better about it! I even gave my brother my Apple Mac computer as I never use it (I'm more of a laptop girl) now I have a huge space on my desk that was once taken over by my computer. I feel like I've got a brand new room.

2. Make-Up 

I recently made the decision that it is not necessary to have 50+ lipsticks, especially when I only use about 6 of them. Once I started going through my lipsticks, I then went through the whole of my make-up location. Before I had three big draws of make-up and two big boxes. I've now narrowed it down to ONE box!  And it's amazing because I can actually see all of my make-up now as before I had way too much I couldn't find half of it. And although I do love make up and creating new looks, I'm not someone who needs the latest launches. I've also re-discovered some old favourites by doing this and feel like I've got some new pieces because some old gems where piled at the bottom of my draws so I could never find them. I've also done a very similar thing with my skin care and beauty collection! My morning and evening routines are now so much more satisfying.

3. Wardrobe 

The finial and most difficult task of all was my wardrobe clear out. Now things is something I do every 6 months or so. And it feels great for a few weeks I have space to get things in and out of my wardrobe without it being a mission to put clothes away. But then very quickly I seem to fill up the space again with things I probably don't need. This time round though things are slightly different. I'm really trying to buy less clothing and make smarter choices when shopping too. I've started to add some classic pieces into my wardrobe, which can be worn season after season. And really starting to think about my style and what suits me well. As featured in the photos above, I've discovered this year that midi dress suit me really well. So I'd added a few to my collection, and tried to stick to midi dresses take can take me from day to night. I've also added a few jeans and blazers to my collection that can be worn with multiple outfits. (outfit posts coming soon). Going forwards I would like 90% of my wardrobe to be more versatile so I can get more wear out of the clothes I have got.

 This is just the first steps towards and more minimalistic lifestyle and as I said before I will try and keep you update with how I am going.

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Love
Nicole

An evening with Pandora!






Hello guys, 

I hope you are all well and having a good weekend! Today I wanted to talk to you all about an event I recently attended with Pandora. Working in the jewellery industry myself I'm always interested to see what other brands are offering and their latest collections. Pandora were promoting their wedding collection. Gifts perfect for the bride, bridesmaids and of course as a guest to wear to a wedding. 

I will link the collection for you guys to have a look at here. My favourite is the make a wish gift set which is currently on offer. This Pandora event was held at The Ivy in Tower Bridge, I adore The Ivy and have yet to try this one out so this was the perfect opportunity for me. 

The main thing I love about Pandora is that the products are affordable, yet really good quality. I have a couple of Pandora products now and always get compliments when I wear them.  

We all took part in a calligraphy workshop, this was to promote making your own wedding cards or thank you cards! Which I think is a fabulous idea and makes it more personal than sending out a standard card. I can't say I'm the best at calligraphy but this was my first time trying it out and it was really good fun. Very therapeutic we got to take home with us a booklet along with ink and the pens so I will be testing out my skills at home. 

The calligraphy class was held by London Calligraphy! Taught by Katie Noakes and I would highly recommend booking a workshop if you would like to learn how to do calligraphy. 

I hope you enjoyed this post 
Love

Travel Dairy: Milan


Top Asos | Skirt Topshop | Trainers Dune | Sunglasses Quay |Bag Aspinal of London




Dress Topshop




Dress Primark | Trainers Dune | Bag Aspinal of London | Jacket Topshop


Hello guys, I hope you are well. Now I think one of the best things about being a blogger is being about to document your travels. Writing travel posts is like re-living your trip. Back in April myself and my best friend Charlotte went to Milan for a city break. We found a really good deal on BA with a fabulous looking hotel. 

Unfortunately (but it all turned out good in the end) Charlotte got a call to say our hotel had been cancelled due to unexpected refurbishment. We were slightly worried our new hotel would not be as nice as the one we had booked and it was in a different local too. However upon arrive we were amazed! You can view my Instagram stories highlights to see why. Our room was like a big flat, we both said we wanted to move it! The bathroom area was huge with a double sink which I always like. It had a TV which spins round so you could watch it in bed and while sitting on the sofa! It was pure luxury. The hotel was called Magna Pars suites. And I’d highly recommended to anyone looking to visit Milan. 

The located was also great, about 10 mins just outside of the city centre. But we go Uber’s everywhere as it was so cheap to do so. 

A short walk from our hotel was an area called Milano Navigli, a little canal with loads of cute bars and restaurants. Much cheaper and less touristy that the city centre. We actually ended up here every night. Cocktails costed about €7 which is much cheaper than London and the city centre in Milan. 

As well as exploring the  city and eating all the good food we also wanted to have a really chilled and relaxed trip. We had a spa morning at QC Termemilano which was just so lovely, it was about €50 to use the spa facilities and 100% worth it. The spa had both an indoor and outdoor area. They also had lots of space for sunbathing which would be ideal for the summer months. We didn’t have any treatments but I’m sure they are good too. 

If I can I’ll always try and find a roof top bar when in a new city, as I just love the views, we went to a bar called Terrazza Duomo21. The drinks where pricey however your paying for the view and atmosphere, it's definitely worth going even just for one drink. 

  I'd love to go to Milan again, the buzz of the city was great! But it was also a really chilled trip. 

Hope you enjoyed this post keep your eyes peeled for a Rome city break travel dairy soon. 

Love
Nicole

Dear Dairy: May 2019







Top Zara | Skirt Oasis | Coat Bershka 


Hello guys, so it’s been a little while since my last blog post again! I’ve had a lot going on personally so decided to take a little step back from certain things in my life but now I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. I’ve got lots of posts ideas and I’m hoping to now post every Wednesday and Sunday! 

Today I wanted to come back with a May dairy post. The beginning of may was exciting as I went on a trip to Rome, a city that has been on my list for places to go for ages now! (Two weeks before I also went to Milan so expect to see lots of travel related posts soon) 
I love exploring new cities and always try to go to a least one new place every year. Italy is one of my favourite places to explore mainly because of the amazing food! 

I’ve also started to get back into running something I’ve not done for over a year now, I’ve been using the Nike running app which I love! And I’m amazed with myself for how far I can run considering I’ve not done any running for that long. So far I’m just sticking to 5k until I can get my fitness up to the next level. I have an amazing lido near me where I go and I’ve been enjoying listening to podcasts. (If you have any recommendations I’d love to know as I’ve been getting into podcast recently.) 

Now I know I’m like super late to the party but this month I finished watching gossip girl! I’m always that person who watches series years later but I have to say I really enjoyed it but was slightly disappointed in the end to find out who gossip girl was! I won’t say anymore in case some of you haven’t watch it (that being said I’m just like 99% of people have I was just in the 1% who hadn’t!) it’s made me really want to book a trip to New York, I loved having New York as apart of my life for 50 minutes every evening! I’ve always wanted to make a move to the big apple for a year or two and GG has made me want to go more....

I also went to the cinema to see the film Hustle in may which was so so funny, I’d highly recommend anyone who hasn’t seen it to go and see it! I don’t normally go to the cinema as I find it too expensive however 2 for 1 offers make if much more affordable. I can’t wait until this comes out on Netflix as I really want to watch it again! 

May also good for shopping, I started to read Anna's book, An Edited Life. Which I will talk more about in another post, but it has made me want to be more organised and cut down my wardrobe. I've had a good old clear out and added some timeless pieces to my wardrobe which are high quality and will last a long time! I can't wait to share with you some of my outfits! 

Hope you enjoyed my little may round up! 
I’ll be back on Wednesday with a Milan travel dairy
Love

Going on my first solo trip - Med Sailors!







Playsuit Topshop | Boots River Island | Bag Aspinal of London 

This year I've decided to do more for me! So in the middle of February I decided to book my first ever solo trip away with MedSailors. (You can check out their website here) I knew I wanted to go away by myself but for a short period of time and I wanted to go with a company with other travellers. I wasn't keen on the idea of doing my trip completely solo and planning my own schedule as I was a little too nervous for that. I looked into Trek America and MedSailors, but in the end MedSailors won it for me because they had a trip to Croatia. I went to Croatia a couple of years ago now with one of my girlfriends, we stayed in Dubrovnik which is such a beautiful place and I knew from the very start of that holiday I wanted to go back to Croatia and explore more places.

MedSailors have six different destinations so far, therefore you are not limited for choice. I'm pretty sure if I enjoy this trip I will be booking myself another one for next year. Their destinations include Croatia, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Montenegro and Caribbean!

They have two routes for the Croatia trip and I'm taking the Discovery route which starts and ends in Split. Each day we will be going to a different island including Komiza, Vis Town, Zavala Luka, Hvar and Supetar. I've paid £791 for 7 days and I'm staying on the Premier Plus boat which has a a little more room than the Premier boat (however all of the boats look great!) plus flights which you book separately by yourself. This also includes both breakfast and lunch and MedSaliors recommend you take about £50 spending money each day for food, drinks and other activities. I will be taking lots of photographs and I will have a blog post on my trip when I return. I will let you know how it went as well as any other important information I feel you should know if you are planning to go on your own MedSailors trip.

One of my main reasons for wanted to go on this trip, is this year I want to do more for me and do things that are outside of my comfort zone. And I thought this would be the best way to start as I will be gaining new experiences and meeting lots of new people. (You have about 8 people staying on each boat but I was told there are about 5 boats doing the same route so you have the opportunity to meet other people on the other boats.) Although I'm super nervous about this, I'm also so excited. I think it's so important to push yourself and try out new things in life.

Now onto my outfit, as you may have seen on one of my latest blog post here. I've been trying to be a smarter shopper another way I have been doing this is by having a look in the sales section. I picked up this playsuit over Christmas from Topshop for about £15. I love the black and multi coloured spots meaning you can literally team it with any lipstick or accessories.

Hope you enjoyed this post, have you ever been on a solo trip?

Many Thanks,
Nicole

Dear Dairy: February 2019






Can you believe that we are in March already?! It feels like summer is really on its way with this amazing weather. February seemed to come and go really quickly and was a busy month for me, meaning that my blog had to take a little back step. But I promise I will be posting once or twice a week from now!

At the beginning of February due to some personal reasons, I decided to change around some big plans I had this year for trips I had lined up. And instead I've decided this year will be the year I do more this more myself and push myself right out of my comfort zone, so about mid-feb after much  talks with my family and close friends about it. I decided to book my first ever solo trip away to Croatia on a Med Sailors holiday! (You can find their website here) I'm excited and very nervous. For some people going away on a holiday by themselves is not a big deal, but for me this is something I've never done before. And I can't wait to start my adventure and met lots of new people.  I have a post coming up this Wednesday with lots more information on my trip and why I've decided to go to Croatia. So keep your eyes peeled for that! 

17th February marked my 24th Birthday (I'm feeling old now!) and to celebrate myself and my friend Charlotte spend the afternoon in London. We started off at the Heddon Street Kitchen at a cocktail making masterclass. Which was so much fun, we got a cocktail each on arrival. Then we both got asked what our favourite style of cocktail is, I said vodka and my Charlotte said rum.  Neither of us realised with would be having lots of shots of both vodka and run to see which type we liked the most to put in our cocktail. We also tried a range of mixers so we could carefully select which one we wanted. Our bartender was amazing and made the overall experience really fun. At the end of the masterclass we got to take our cocktails to a table and had a selection of starters. I have to say I was super impressed by both of our cocktails and this has made me want to have some girls nights in cocktail making!  The food was great, so it has definitely made me want to go back and have a meal at the Heddon Street Kitchen. After this we went to the Ivy in Soho which is one of our favourite places to have dinner. I find for the quality of the food the Ivy is a reasonably priced and I love the art deco theme interiors inside.      

I feel like February was a month of good food and going out lots! I love brunch and I think it's my all time favourite meal to go out for especially on a Sunday. For a while now I've wanted to check out the bluebird cafe in Chelsea. Me and my friend Alex put a date in the dairy to go and it's fair to say it did not disappoint. I had my favourite dish eggs royale, which I pretty much have all the time when I go out for brunch. I've tried to make it at home before but let's just say I'm not the best of cooks.  I feel like Chelsea is an area I really love but do not go to often enough. On a Saturday they have the best food market down kings road, and the shopping is great too. I think it's easy to assume because it's Chelsea everywhere will be really expensive but it's not. There are a range of affordable high street shops as well as designer high end. You can also find the Ivy Chelsea Gardens, which is apart of the Ivy group so it's similar to the one in solo. I'm sure you have all seen this multiple times on instagram!

Towards the end of the month a couple of my friends planned a finial birthday celebration for me. We went to the Piano works in the west end and it was sooooo much fun! We had a 2 course meal for £15 and the food was great, I'm always worried about bar food but I was super impressed. I had salmon for main and chocolate brownie for desert. Which was really big I couldn't eat half of it!
The Piano works, it's different from most bars/clubs in London they have a band at the front with two guys playing the piano and signing along to songs you request. There is such a range of music from old classics to current. We didn't stop dancing all night and nearly missed our train home because we were having so much fun.

Hope you had a good few weeks, and please let me know any recommendations of places to go and things to do in London as I love going to new places.

Love
Nicole

Being a smart shopper







Dress Zara (Charity Shop) | Boots River Island 

This year I really want to save some more money, I'd love to travel more! (I have a few trips lined up already and my first ever solo trip, I'll talk more about this in my next post.) As well as saving up for a house or flat. I have an over flowing wardrobe and always looking to add more, personal style is so important for me and my identity so adding new items to my wardrobes comes along with that. 

However I've learnt to realise that shopping does not have to cost a you a lot of money. I've added a new rule to my wardrobe and shopping habits this year. I'm going to work on a one in one out policy. Every time I buy an item of clothing I want have a look in my wardrobe and see what I've not been wearing recently so I can either give it to a friend/donate to a charity shop or sell on Ebay. 

Talking about charity shops and Ebay these are two of my favourite places to find second hand clothes. One of the main reasons I love buying second hand clothes is because not only can you buy something for a really good price but you can normally get items that are no longer available in stores. Although when it comes to buying second hand clothes, you do need to have some patience and it can take a while to go through all the clothes to find the right things for you!   

This dress above is from one of my local charity shops and is originally from Zara. I picked it up for £4 and it's been my go to winter dress, such an easy one to wear with little styling needed.

I've actually been using Ebay a lot over the past couple of weeks to sell my unwanted items and its a really easy way to make extra money and I've managed to put this away for my upcoming trips that I've got. And anything that does not sell I will be taking to a car boot sale once they start again in the spring. I find car boot sales really enjoyable especially if the weather is good! 

Another way to buy affordable clothing is keeping an eye on your favourite stores social media channels as most of them from time to time will do sample sales! I think the best one I went to was Oasis, I managed to get about 5 items for £30, which was great. I would advise getting to any sample sale early in order not to miss the best items. Most sample sales cost a couple of pounds to get into, however a lot of this money does go to charity. 

Hope you enjoyed this post, and please let me know any ways you try to be a smarter shopper. 

Love
Nicole

My Most Worn Winter Outfit







Jumper - Zara
Jeans - Topshop 
Shoes - Dune

Happy Sunday! Wow I'm so glad it's the weekend! Today I'm off to the Bluebird cafe for brunch in Chelsea to catch up with an old work friend and to start planning our city break to Rome! We are going in May for three nights, if you have any recommendations please send them my way as neither of us have been before but we are so excited to explore somewhere new.

I wanted to take things back to basics in my post this week and talk about my favourite outfit at the moment and what I would call my most worn winter outfit for 2018/2019. I picked up this jumper towards the end of Autumn in Zara last year and its fair to say I have pretty much worn it every week since. This is what my friends and family would say is a 'very nicole jumper.' I recently left my job and on my work leaving card they placed a photograph of me wearing this and one of the comments said 'I'll miss your sparkly jumpers!'

I've been living in tees/jumpers and jeans these days, I find them such an easy go to look when I'm not sure what to wear. My shoes are from Dune, and I got a growing collection of these in multiple colours. I'm 100% that girl who find something she loves then wants/needs it in every colour possible. 

I've decided to take a new approach with shopping at the moment, I've brought so many good Winter items and now the summer items are starting to appear in the shops. I've got a long list of things I would like to add to my wardrobe. However, I've made the decision to have a one in one out policy. So I've started to sell a lot of my unwanted clothes on Ebay!

Next weeks post will be all about shopping in for second hand clothes/how to make the most of your own wardrobe!

Lots of Love
Nicole
