Back to School Shopping at Rockingham Centre


Back to school shopping can feel daunting, time consuming and expensive but this year I was organised, shopped smart and purchased everything I needed for my two children at Rockingham Centre. I was involved in a Back to School challenge whereby I received a $250 gift card for each of my kids to buy everything they needed during the one…

Christmas On A Budget at Ocean Keys Shopping Centre


I used to get very overwhelmed with the thought of Christmas Shopping and those ‘helpful’ countdown reminders did me no favours! Finding the perfect gifts for my loved ones that were also within my budget was a difficult task but now I know exactly where to shop and I am able to focus on the joy of giving. With the…

Modern Plus Size Fashion on a Budget | Shein


I’m an inbetweenie being a 14 on top / 14-16 on bottom and LOVE the Shein plus size range!! There are so many super modern pieces at cheap prices. I feel Perth lacks variety in affordable fashion for curvy ladies in brick & mortar stores. I know everyone prefers to try on their clothes but at the low prices the gamble…

That Place in Medina | Sustainable Reclaimed Fashion


The recently opened quirky boutique That Place in Medina  offers high quality upcycled fashion. I spotted retro, vintage, designer labels and pieces with personality that deserve to be re matched with a new owner. The size 16 plus ‘More’ section got my tick of approval! I tried on many pieces that were very modern and great preloved condition.   I…

Christmas on a Budget | Ocean Keys


Christmas is a time of joy and giving, a time for families to gather and love but let’s face it, it can be a very expensive time of the year! This Christmas I have a very tight budget but I want to make sure the magic and gift sharing traditions remain the same. With that in mind I went to Ocean Keys Shopping…

Black Dye Washing |Almost as good as new


I have dyed my first load of clothes and I am left longing for all the faded black clothes I have parted with over the years. I purchased a packet of Dylon Velvet Black dye from my local Woolworths along with a bottle of salt. I started to gather all of my clean black clothes that were looking less then…

Boots Made For Walking


Last winter I lived in my black leather CAT biker boots but my style has since changed and they no longer will do. With birthday money to spend I set off to the shops in search of shoes. I was aiming for a comfy but refined boot. Sadly my shopping voyage was a fail. They were either over priced for the…

Happy Birthday Coupons


Every year without fail I am wished Happy Birthday by food outlets and retail stores. I love how they appreciate me so. As a reward for giving away my precious personal details, trusting them with it and allowing my spending habits to be statistically analysed, I receive birthday treats! Some years I use a couple then never get around to claiming the others but not this…

Wrapped Up and Snug For Winter


The mornings have been feeling a bit chilly and already I have been having the ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ feeling. I took a good look at my winter wardrobe and felt I am lacking a comfortable and warm coat. I have been hoarding my Katherine designer coat for over 9 years waiting to shrink into it again and sadly it’s not even…
