clean lines

Before I tell you all about my latest style inspiration I am just going to give you the heads up about a game-changing tip that the gorgeous @mylittlejoneslife (whom I had the pleasure of meeting last Sunday) imparted to me about one of the tools on Instagram. I may very late to the party sharing this .....you may have already been using it for ages, however if you are a techo-phobe like me I am happy to impart this little nugget of information with you as it has already saved me a ton of time. I used to screenshot things to my camera roll only to find I'd missed off the all important account details so thank you Catherine! Basically if you see a picture you want to save (whether it be home styling, ideas, fashion or food inspo) you can just click on the little flag/tag at the bottom right corner of the picture on an Instagram post and the shot will be saved to a folder where you can store those things you may want to refer to again. To access the folder to view your saved items you just go to your profile page and click on the flag/tag, again on the right hand side just above your grid. Simples! Great isn't it?!

Right, onto the inspiration I have saved.

a bargainista's reveal!

I haven't given the sales much of my attention yet but I do have an amazing bargain to share with you. In Summertime I think the straw bag has become something of a signature item for me. As they are neutral and go with everything I seem to have accrued quite a selection. I've been obsessed with the Cult Gaia one and did contemplate buying one full price (here). However since I owned one of this style of bags 30 odd years ago I couldn't bear to part with £100 plus for one. So instead I went on the hunt to see if I could find a cheaper alternative and sure enough I did. £38.99 including post & packaging.

some #veryimportantpurchases!

I took off on a little jolly this week. If there is one thing I've learnt about myself this year it is to be open to taking up some of the invitations that come my way. So when I was contacted by The Glades in Bromley to go along to their #veryimportantpurchase event I jumped at the chance!

Me and my haul outside The Glades!

beating those post holiday blues......

by stealing some style from one of my favourite sources of inspiration at the moment! I love this fab Instagram account called LeStyleaLaFrancaise. Just before I went on holiday they posted this pic and I screenshot it to copy at a later date!
