i cheated…

Hello Beauties, I will be honest with you – a few days into No Buy July I cheated… There I was at Zara with my mom and the yellow stillettos were just calling my name. I simply couldn’t deny them. So I did not exactly cheat, I sort of kinda asked my mom to buy […]

No Buy July

Well Beauties, I am endeavoring to take on a most challenging fete – NO BUY JULY. Over what’s left of July I will attempt to withstand temptation, dodge the shopping centers and refrain from shopping. To some that may sound like a regular day but to most of us style enthusiasts it’s near impossible. With a […]
