Bargain Market

On the hunt for bargains me and my flat mate Annie decided to head to Camden for the day, we explored the whole market in search for items which would indulge our lust for fashion, style and icon. As my blog will be based on a number of things which includes fashion, this was my aim to catch up and start to build my non existing wardrobe. Moving to London became a fashion shock, I realized I have no style and living with someone like Annie who looks amazing in any style she owns, encouraged me to build a style which will shock the people around me.

To create a style on a budget I decided to only take only £45 out with me and with £5 put on my oyster card I had £40 for the big market experience. After searching the market for a couple of hours We decided to head for food, with a number of stalls to choose from we choose the Mexican fajitas and with what I had £5 was a bargain as I had a tray full of food and a bottle of water.

 With the last £35 in my pocket I went on the hunt for some items with Annie's help i bought two tops, One Jumper a bowler hat and a necklace. I had an amazing bargain on each item but on the other hand, as Annie didn't take money with her her best Bargain was the experience of Camden Market and that to me was Priceless

Heart Jumper - £12
Cross Top and I Love Mustache Top - £10
Necklace - £5
Bowler Hat - £8

The City

As my blog will be about the best ways to help you create the perfect way for you to save money, my first proper post will be about my day trip into London with Ieuan. I haven't been living in London for very long so everything that happened on this day was entirely new to me and Ieuan, our aim is to spend as less money as possible but to have the best time we could possible have.

Our day started at around 11am, we had breakfast packed a bite to eat and set off it was fairly warm out so layers were not needed. we topped £10 each on our oyster cards and set off on the tube. we got off at the Green Park Station and walked to Buckingham Palace, the sights were unbelievable

At Buckingham Palace we saw the guards march and visited the palace gift shop, the jewellery within that shop was amazing but the kind of jewellery that you look at not buy :) before entering the shop we sat at the palace fountain and we both made a wish, to find out my WISH stay in tuned until this time next year when hopefully my wish will come true.

we spent the full day in London, sight seeing and walking round the streets we visited a number of shops looking at a number of items which we found funny such as personalized condoms, 'I'm With...' T-shirts and sun glasses. We had an amazing day but i will admit that we did in fact get lost and walked right round Victory Street a number of times 

Sight seeing in London has been a great adventure, we spent only £20, we tend to enjoy seeing new things and exploring the world around us and doing it without spending money is the best way to experience things. Anyone reading this who does live in London who is constantly on the go who doesn't stop to appropriate the city they live in, next day off take a walk and realize that its magical. take your kids to the park or take a romantic stroll and the best thing of all its PRICELESS

The Big Move

Applying to University became the longest waiting game of my life because of the big move to London. I was well prepared and started buying things for my room as early as May 2012 but even to this day seven weeks later it still feels unreal and as if I've forgotten something. I come from a small town and its a town where everyone knows each other, so moving to London where I know just a hand full of people which actually I haven't seen since moving here was a breathe taking experience. 

I woke up at 6.00am that morning, but actually didn't fall asleep until 2.00am, I spent the night at my uncles as he was driving me to London and because my boyfriend Ieuan was spending freshers week with me he stayed with me at my uncles which I know he soon regrets. I was so excited for my big move I kept him up most of the night and at one point he actually pushed me out of bed :P

Waking up at 6.00am wasn't hard and waking up to a knock at the door from my best friend Rowenna became actually a pleasant send off, she had placed balloons all around the garden and set party poppers off in my face which to me was a nice surprise. The journey lasted Three and half hours and on arrival I collected my keys and continued to my room. as I was pulling into the car park I noticed that I most likely had the most boxes, our seven seater car was packed full to the top but after settling in, my flat mate told me that she had a van to bring her stuff here which made me feel a lot better.

My room is small compared to my room at my grandmas but I made it feel as homely as I could

I love how the room has turned out and that I can now feel at home. my Flat mates are amazing and I know ill love how London life will treat me :).
