A New Home

After blogging for a few months now, I’ve felt that WordPress wasn’t giving me the kind of creative freedom and social interaction I wanted from my blog. ¬†So I’ve decided to jump ship and move on over to Blogger!
I knew I wanted to take my time with this and make it something I’m proud of and, ultimately, is a reflection of me rather than a free template designed by some talented individual over at WP.

If you would still like to follow my blog (which I really hope you do ūüôā ) then head on over to my new site… www.callmekim.net

Love you all!

This Sh*t Is Bananas!

Sometimes you buy something that creates huge conversation where other people offer their very strong opinions…
This, is the banana print top.

20130309_135213

Bought off eBay for just ¬£6, bat wing fit and a fierce banana print. I bloody love it, but it well and truly divided opinion between¬†friends¬†and family! But I love that I’ve made people talk, isn’t that what fashion’s all about? Making a statement?
I felt so amazing in this top, it’s so different to my usual style and I loved rocking a print that obviously envoked strong opinion. ¬†Driving to Tesco with a bit of Gwen Stefani on full blast in this top¬†may¬†have been a little bit over the top… but I didn’t care!
The top is originally from Ruby Rocks, a ¬†brand I’ll be casting my beady eye over with some payday perversions. You can find some RR beauties over at Simply Be too!

Is it time for you to make a statement?

March Money Budget Left: £20.75

Purchase 1! #MMM

For my first purchase this month, I chose these khaki Dunlop espadrilles.
I’m loving espadrilles for Spring at the moment, it’s warm enough to keep your feet warm on a crisp, cold morning but casual enough to rock with some turn up jeans for a warmer afternoon.

I got these cuties via eBay for ¬£7.07 (plus ¬£2.19 postage and packaging) and the fit is gorgeous. ¬†I’m a bit funny about used shoes, but these were brand spankers so no mouldy feet disease for me!

March Money Management

1300377553_wp-purse-moths_w850_h850

Being a business student you would have thought that I was a natural with bank statements, budgeting and money management. ¬†Well, I’m not. ¬†Sure, I can make sure the bills go out and I always know what’s in my bank account at all times, but when it comes to money management the pennies blow a gigantic hole in my pocket.
I’m a 20-something year old girl with no kids and a disposable income, so when I see something pretty I don’t have the¬†umm arr¬† moment where I contemplate the outgoings, I get it. ¬†Straight up. ¬†But this has to change, I’ve been saving for a new place with my partner for some time and within the next couple of months responsible adult living is going to come knocking on my front door (argh!).
My biggest expenditure at the moment, and especially since I’ve become active on the plus size community is clothes, shoes and accessories. ¬†My oh-so-clever partner calculated from my bills last month that during the whole of January I spent, on average, 13p a minute!

So, with this astonishing revelation, I’ve decided to do a test run and put myself on… a budget.

moneyDuring the month of March I will only allow myself ¬£40 to spend on any clothes, shoes, accessories or bags I have the urge for. ¬†This number was arrived at with a general survey of friends, colleagues and family as a ‘suitable’ disposable amount that wouldn’t affect life or bills. ¬†I have the shakes already…

BUT, I’m going to do it! If nothing else but to stop the bloody jokes from my partner…
‘Babe, most people spend a penny when they go to the loo – but you spend around 50p’¬† Git.

I’ll be keeping a countdown of monies all through the month on this blog so you can keep an eye on my expenditure too!

 

So, what do you think? Great idea or worst plan known to woman?

Much love x
