You don't need money to be stylish part 2

The tables and centre pieces for my wedding!







It's been a year since I wrote "you don't need Money to be stylish", which was a post on charity shops. I had such a great response to this and lots of you loved the idea that my now husband converted me into a charity shop bargain hunter ha ha ha. Since then we've had our daughter and gotten married, during both of these times we're still all about saving! during the planning of our wedding we wanted a rustic/hobbit themed wedding (don't worry we didn't dress up as hobbits) we also wanted to use our money wisely and not break the bank! 

Tables & The centre pieces: we opted for wild-like flowers which were all bought from Morrisons! The bunches come to £1.20 each (bought 6) used for 4 tables and the head table. We bought the crystal glass bottles from poundland ,at obviously, £1 per bottle (10 bottles ).the table numbers were from the works that came in a pack of 4 for £1, all the artificial flowers on the tables and pined on the beams were all really cheap at only £1 per line of 2 metres. The brown mats which are actually the coconut lining for hanging baskets they were £1 for 2 (4 bought) we also scattered dried flowers on all the tables which come from the card factory in a box at £1 each (bought 8) as you can see a wedding doesn't have to be expensive! 

Total cost of our table settings and head table:£60 
Provided by the venue: the linen for the tables, cutlery  dishes, glasses etc. 
Tips:  Brainstorm, plan, shop around, compare prices, go on Pinterest for ideas.

I hope you enjoyed the read 
Lots of love

not another autumn post

autumn is here...
Cosy, fluffy blankets are on the top of my list, although I keep them out all year round, I do have a basket in the front room to keep them stored both the grey and brown are from Primark at only £5 each. The crochet red and white one was hand made by a family member for poppy.

- Scents around the house have to be sweet and fresh but I do like the apple and cinnamon smells for autumn and winter plus a few Yankee candles ( Christmas cookie is my favourite).

- A new bag! I try to have a bag for every season but I change my mind all the time, this year I've gone for a cross over bag with gorgeous embroidery detail and guess what? It was only £7 from primark. Bonus! 
- I can finally bring out my favourite boots. My studded ankle boots from Truffle and my Dune brown winter boots are nice and warm also my pretty floral Ralph Lauren wellies are great for a rainy day or a muddy hike! 
- This is going to be an odd one but I tend to clear out my wardrobe for every season, …

Dress Like a Gryffindor

Two in one jumper shirt; h&m  Leggins: h&m  Boots: m&s


Yes your right,  I changed my boots! why? I wanted to see which pair looked best but ended up changing them again.  Boots: Truffle 
Today we celebrated my husband's birthday so I thought I would make the effort to look smart and put makeup on! I've been abit of a slob lately I honestly can't be bothered with makeup, plus we have had a very hectic first two weeks of October... anyway, as I walked Into the lounge this morning i was greeted by my loving husband who said "you look like Hermione"! He's lucky it's his birthday today hahaha 
Hope you liked the look Natasha xXx 



Jane Eyre at The Mayflower theatre

A night at the theatre with @sotonbloggers 




I've always been a theatre lover and I've seen many shows at the Mayflower theatre over the years, so when I was invited to see Sally cooksons new adaptation of Charlotte bronte's novel Jayne eyre last night, I had to be there. We were given Great seats where we sat comfortably waiting for the show to begin. I honestly had no idea what to expect on this "new take" of the novel, it was also a great time to announce the tour as 2017 is the 170th anniversary of when Jane eyre was first published. the highly acclaimed co-production between the national theatre and the Bristol old vic. 
Jayne Eyre, played by the amazingly talented Nadia Cliford, shows her beginnings as a destitute orphan overcomes life's obstacles from surviving poverty, injustice, betrayal and the ultimate decisions on following her heart. While others may of found the thought of Jayne Eyre on stage might not of been their cup of tea I can honestly say…
