*Collaborative post.

Know Your Style

ASOS is a full of different styles, so before you go in, know what it is you are looking for otherwise you could get lost and be trying to navigate your way round the site for hours. ASOS is home to over 80,000 different products from a whole host of different brands.

Just make a note of different styles, and the specifics you are looking for. If you are wanting “black ripped men’s skinny jeans” then try that in the search bar, it’s likely to bring up the results you want straight away. You can use the tool bar to sort the range you are wanting, or to sort the different styles they offer.

Use Klarna Wisely

Klarna is one of the best things about shopping at ASOS. If you don’t know what it is, essentially it is a service used by ASOS and other brands to allow you to have 30 days to pay for the product your purchase. So, if you’re struggling towards the end of payday but really need that new dress, Klarna to the rescue.

You have to remember however to live within your means. If you know you’ve got a busy month next month, then maybe those £50 boots aren’t the best idea. It may feel like free clothes, but eventually you have to pay! If you’re struggling to understand how Klarna can benefit you, then you can get in touch with ASOS customer services team.

 

Sort by Size

There’s nothing worse than finding that perfect dress, and they’ve run out of your size. You can use the sort tool so that the results only show what is actually in stock in your size, to save yourself from the heartbreak.

The great thing with ASOS is they stock a whole variation of sizes, with a tall section and a plus-size section available if needed. It’s always a good idea to order a couple of different sizes to try on, as you can always send the wrong size back free of charge. You have a month to make sure you aren’t charged by Klarna.

Stick to your Budget

Not everyone can afford a new £100 pair of trainers, so make sure you know your budget before you go in. Maybe switch the range from low to high, starting with the cheaper items and working your way up. There really is some gold dust in the cheaper items, and it often brings up the sale items.

Don’t rule something out just because it’s cheaper than the budget you’ve set, you can either use it for an accessory or save it for next time!

 

Are you on Instagram? Follow #ASSEENATHOME

It’s also a great way to see how a product looks before you actually go out and buy it. It saves the awkwardness of the product arriving, and it just doesn’t feel right.

They are some of our top ASOS shopping tips, if you take these on board before heading to the ASOSD website you are sure to find the outfit of your dreams.

How to style an outfit for special occasions

When it comes to special occasions like weddings and birthdays, you have to make sure you get your outfit right. The last thing you want is to go over dressed and annoy the celebrant or go under dressed and looks scruffy. Here are some fashion and style tips you may find useful when styling an outfit for a special occasion.

Stick to the dress code

Always ensure you find out what the dress code is before styling your outfit. You don’t want to wear a pair of jeans or a denim skirt to a black tie event. Make sure you also check for colour codes just incase. The key to dressing to special occasions is to look smart and decent. That usually works. You can find lots of inspiration on Pinterest.

 

Don’t upstage the celebrant

Like I previously mentioned, upstaging the bride/celebrant won’t do you any favours so make sure you don’t go over dressed. Stick to the dress code and colour codes, and ensure you don’t wear any over the top clothing or accessories. You don’t want the attention on you on the celebrant’s special day. For example, don’t wear a white dress to a wedding unless it is a background colour to a pattern.

 

Dress in tune with the seasons

Pay attention to the seasonal shades of fashion and style your outfit in those shades in mind. For example, dark berry colours mixed with blacks and greys go well in the winter season. So you could opt for a berry dress (ensure colours are in line with the dress codes if any) with black accessories.

 

Have a stylish cover up at the ready

Wearing a strapless dress is all well and good until it gets chilly. Have a stylish cover up at the ready will be a life saver. So make sure you have one.

 

Get a winter coat

If you are attending the event in winter, ensure you have a good statement coat ready. You don’t want to hide your stunning outfit under an ugly coat. Go for a lovely striking coat in a block colour that suits your outfit.

 

The right heels

You should opt for shoes/sandals that go well with your outfit and the event. It is more stylish to wear a dress with a pair of heels rather than flats, but go for the right type of heel for you. You need to be able to walk properly in them and feel comfortable.

How to help your child settle into primary school

*Affiliate links.

 

The Kiddies started reception last September and have settled into the primary school routine. They love going to school and enjoy learning, which is great for all of us. I was a bit worried at first when they started, thinking the longer days and school lunch would be an issue, but they handled it all excellently.

Many children struggle at first when they start primary school, especially when they are summer babies. I know my twins (especially my son) had a hard time adjusting to pre school when they started at 3 years old. So I know how hard it can be for parents when the kids don’t settle on time. Here are some tips that may help you help your child settle into primary school quickly.

 

Trial days at primary school

My kids visited the primary school many times before they actually started in September. The Pre School was just down the road from the primary school, so they got to go in many times for some hours before starting. They also had 3 trial days where they spent the whole day at the primary school in the summer before starting in September. Those days helped them settle in quickly as they knew what to expect when they started in September and the routine wasn’t completely new to them.

 

Books about primary school routine

The Kiddies love reading and they learn a lot from the books they read. Reading children’s books about school does help. There are many amazing books available that would help relief the tension and anxiety starting school may bring. The book – First Day at Bug School by Sam Lloyd, helped the kids understand the primary school routine a bit more. First Day at Skeleton School also by Sam Lloyd is another great book to read. 

 

A good routine at home

Having good routine at home does help children settle into primary school quickly. A good routine means the children get to have dinner at a good time and have enough sleep at night to keep them refreshed and ready to learn. Bedtime at our house is 7pm and we try to get the kids in bed and asleep for 7:30pm at the latest.

Being involved

Being involved in what the child does in school does help. So finding at about their day, so you know if there are any issues helps. Doing homework together also helps, as you have a good picture of what your child’s progress at school. Homework for my 5-year-old twins in Reception Class is really about reading and knowing the phonetics sounds.

Also, going in for the pupil progress meetings and stay and play helps the parents stay updated on what happens in the classroom and how the child is coping on a daily basis.
