Switching Up My Waredrope | Haul & Try On

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently embarked on a fashion haul. My aunty was visiting from Ghana and I accompanied her to do most of her shopping. While with her she pointed out that I need to look good for work as this is were I tend to spend most of my time.


I hackened unto her to buy a few things to try and switch up my waredrope. Also I had put on a few pounds and it was time to buy new sizes as my old cloths didn't fit. My old cloths believe it or not are in sizes 4 and 6 however now I can fit in an 8 and I feel I look a lot better.


I did a few shopping in Primark were I bought 3 dresses in size UK8 all of which were full price item. The mustard dress fits fine and I love the colour however the other 2 are very tight even though they are size 8. I have not worn them yet so maybe they will loosen up -  this is what happens when you can't be bothered to try stuff on before you buy them๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพ‍♀️.

I also bought several trousers and tops from H&M, all of which were sale items. I have always bought most of my office wear from H&M simply because they fit and always had my size.

Altogether I think I spent about £150 if not more. Check out my video above for more details.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thrifted Transformation Project: Process

Hello and welcome. It has been a while since I made a post. I promise to keep the post coming. In this post I am introducing you to an outfit I put together.

I am having to thrift that dress and will reveal it soon. The design and material I had in mind I watched YouTube to replicate a pattern however after putting it together I didn't like it as I felt it was too revealing and was thinking of throwing it away or taking it apart and using it for something else until I had an epiphany ๐Ÿ˜‚. (I've been wanting to use this word for some time now so here goes). I wanted to wear it as a top with various skirts.  I also had a few scuba fabrics I bought from ebay I wanted to make some skirt out of it to wear with the top. I bought lining for the scuba skirt however it didn't arrive s

What I Have Been Up To - Investing & Developing Now Skills

Hello and welcome. It's been a long time since I posted on here and a lot has changed. I have been a bit busy doing other things however I think I will be frequenting this blog going forward. One of my recent investment Now onto what I have been up to. A few months ago I invested in a sewing machine from amazon. I was happy to get a 0% interest and paid in installment. If you are in finance you know there's no such thing as 0% interest. Ha! I did manage to sew a dress and wore it for as a bridesmaid dress at a friend's wedding. The finishing was not good and I have learnt alot from that experience. The bridesmaid dress I made ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฟ‍♀️ I have now moved on to my second, third and forth project and will share it with you in due time. I have decided to pick this up due to the uncertainties within the corporate world. So let's wait and see what I can deliver going forward.
