Seeing as it’s January and the majority associate this with being a bit of an anti climax after Christmas and the New Year, I have decided to do a post that is budget friendly and will help cure those January Blues. Most people’s purse strings are a little tighter at this time of year, unless you are one of a lucky few, so it’s always nice to find items that won’t break the bank. Some say not to shop when you’re not feeling the richest, I say be smart about your shopping. A little ‘pick me up’ that won’t hurt the bank balance too much, can be considered a necessity in my eyes 😉 So here are my Top 20 items that are under €20!
Top 20 Under €20
Turtle Neck €20.00 River Island
Messenger bag €19.99 Zara
Rimmed Sunglasses €13.00 River Island
White Blazer €19.50 Missguided
Skater Dress €16.50 Forever 21
Blouse €19.99 Zara
So there you go ladies, proof that you can justify your shopping addiction in January. Happy Shopping 🙂
Until Next Time My Loves

Until Next Time My Loves
I have to say I’m not the biggest fan of New Year’s Eve, I like New Year’s Day as it is a second Christmas in our household. The ‘Eve’ part however just doesn’t appeal to me, but to be fair I have to acknowledge it. I’m not one for long winded, unattainable resolutions so this post will most certainly not be based on that aspect. Instead I have decided to do a quick review about my 2014, it has been an eventful year to say the least. I am going to focus on the highlights and forget about the lows as I plan on leaving them in 2014 also!
So here it goes….
Proudest Achievement of 2014: I have two (sorry I’m crap at narrowing things down) the first is graduating with a first class honours degree (victory dance) in Marketing after four years of studying. The second would be starting my blog. I’ve always wanted to do it so I’m really happy that I actually took the plunge!
Biggest Change of 2014: Finishing college and actually using my degree to get a job and becoming a grown-up (ish) Bubye retail!
Favourite Song of 2014: I’m not usually a pop music kinda girl but it would have to be ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit. I just have some good memories and I always smile when I hear it! I’m also loving Uptown Funk I have been bopping around to it since it came out!
Favourite Movie of 2014: Ok I’m cheating here but the movie I was going to say was actually released late 2013 but it was my favourite and I did only watch it in 2014 🙂 So it was of course Saving Mr Banks
Favourite Style Icon of 2014: It has to be Olivia Palermo, she is so unique and elegant in her choice of clothing. The girl knows what she is doing!
Favourite Designer of 2014: It would probably have to be Victoria Beckham or Eli Saab, god I really am bad at choosing just one 😛
Favourite Holiday of 2014: Without a doubt it has to be Prague. It is such a beautiful city and I had the most amazing time there in the Summer. I would recommend it to anyone!
Favourite Buy of 2014: My baby blue pencil skirt which I got ON SALE in River Island. I can’t wait to wear it again, I really do love it!
Favourite Style of 2014: Turtle necks, I am obsessed!
Favourite Quote of 2014:
What I’m most appreciative for in 2014: It has to be the support and inspiration I have received from my amazing family, my best friends (you know who you are) and my boyfriend of course!
My Favourite advice from 2014: Burn the fancy candles and wear the expensive perfume, don’t wait for the right time.
What I learned in 2014: Do not judge anyone for any reason. Simple as. Nobody knows what is going on in anyone else’s private life. I’ve also learned not to worry about others judging me! Absolutely nobody on this planet is perfect but there will always be someone somewhere, with something to say!
My Aim for 2015: Put my plans into action and push out negative thoughts and anxiety!
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year’s Eve / Day and get to spend it with those you love. At the end of the day, that is really all that matters. Here’s to a fricken fantastic year!
Until 2015 My Loves
As New Year’s Eve is just around the corner (I can’t believe how quick the last few days have gone!) I have compiled some outfit ideas for the occasion. NYE is the perfect opportunity to incorporate some sparkle and go all out. I personally think no matter where you are on the night, you can never be too over dressed. So take this opportunity and run with it!
NYE Outfit Ideas
Skirt €30.00 River Island, Crop Top €14.99 & Necklace €6.00 both Newlook, Strappy Heels €32.49 & Faux Fur Clutch €25.99 both Missguided
Sequined Trousers €38.00 H&M, Black Cami €33.00 River Island, Black PU Sleave Jacket €39.99 & Shoulder Bag €14.99 both H&M, Shoes as before
Pencil Dress €47.00 & Silver Bangle €13.00 both River Island, Black Heels €19.49, Beaded Clutch €29.99 H&M
€31.75 Miss Selfridge
€85.72 Chi Chi London at ASOS
€63.50 Miss Selfridge
Sequin Blazer €30.00, Pretty Little Thing
There are of plenty of options available in stores at the moment, so at least you can hopefully avoid any added stress of finding an outfit. Even though you may not want to wear a sequin piece until this time again next year, a good blazer or dress that has some sparkle will always come in handy over the festive period!
Happy Shopping My Loves
