Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...... And Don't Forget The Giveaway!

In a financial climate that is tough it makes sense for us all to use what we have before buying new.
 If we are in need something then to check second hand before buying new and always look to up cycle anything and every thing before disposing of it.

Now like lots of women I have lots of clothes.
Although the phrase "I have nothing to wear" might be muttered by these lips, I know that is far from true!

So as the weather cools I am using the opportunity to restyle a few dresses that are, shall we say far from their best.

And this is one of them:


An ASOS dress that has done me well over the years but as its made of a jersey material it has now started to bobble and the top part is now an off cream colour.

So layering saved the day.
On a popped a thrifted top;


Making a different outfit, as well as keeping me rather toasty too.


And I even wore a pair of my newly reheeled shoes.

Although I have no idea what happening with my face:


Yes its strange normally but at the moment I have a huge red mark.
Lets hope it disappears soon.

And in order to reduce food waste we are having yet more pumpkin for tea.

A pumpkin chilli followed by pumpkin pie.
I will let you know how the chilli turns out.

No doubt we shall be watching a little children in need this evening so I best locate the hankies!

  3. Your face looks ok to me. You have a daughter of 24, no way. You don't look much older than that yourself. Like your outfit.
