My experience of Second Hand September and my Autumn/Winter Shopping List

*This post contains affiliate links* With just 8 days of Second Hand September to go, I thought I would share my experience. I’ll be honest, it hasn’t been easy and I have been on countdown all month! I have also experienced a few moments when I have felt a loss of identity and a loss of purpose. I guess that shouldn’t be much of a…

Interiors Inspo

My new vintage look kaftan

*This post may contain affiliate links* I was after a vintage looking cotton kaftan to take to Bali and had found several beautiful pieces on independent and designer websites, but they all came with a hefty price tag.
