My favourite brands:

SheIn – ridiculously cheap current clothes, with detailed reviews and pictures of customers wearing the products. No more surprised from online shopping. One of the very few places I buy new clothes.

Fertha charity shop (London) – my all time favourite charity shop for carefully curated designer and highstreet items at a very affordable price. Definitely say hi to the founder Jade while you’re there – she’ll make you feel like a old friend.

Barry M – the only nail polish I use. Super cheap, lasts forever (especially they’re Topcoat and Gelly forumlas) and comes in stacks of lush colours.

Impossible To Buy For.com – my new start up! Makes gift shopping crazy easy.

 

Travel:

AirBnB – stay with local people in a city instead of a hotel. Not only is AirBnB cheaper than hotels etc but it’s way way better – often your host will give you insider tips or show you around, you get much better quality for your money, and are normally in a more central location. I’ve used it all over the world for everything from one night to one month stays and never had a bad experience. Most hosts will be as interactive as you want – leaving you alone to come and go, or inviting you out to parties and showing you their favourite spots.

JohnnyFD.com – a digital nomad friend of mine. His blog gives you practical advice and inspiration for getting your online income started.

Secret Flying mailing list – get insanely cheap flight offers delivered to your inbox.

House carers – arrange house sitting and pet sitting around the world to travel for free!

Favourite bloggers:

Thrifters Anonymous– by far my #1 favourite Youtube channel – these two will have you laughing out loud within seconds. If you’ve ever been thrifting in America or wondered what it’s like these best friends will have you inspired enough to book a flight asap.

Can’t Swing a Cat – I’m totally hooked on this blog. She shares great tips on money saving and honest human accounts about ethical shopping and the difficult balance behind it.

Britishette – a good friend of mine and avid charity shop hunter in London. She has two young kids and everyone always looks impeccable.

Not Dressed as Lamb – my Mum’s favourite over 40s blogger. She has great style (for all ages) and is really honest and down to earth about what it’s really like to be a blogger (including hilarious ‘out take’ blog posts).

Fleur de Force – my favourite ‘big’ blogger, Fleur has great taste in makeup and clothes and is just super genuine and honest. I often find Youtubers a bit intense and annoying she’s much calmer, and more lovable. Highly recommend!!
