Life, Style & Shopping

Fashion Blogger in UK Image

 

I can’t believe we are in the month of September already. This year is going so fast, isn’t it? August was an extremely busy month for me. I was busy juggling my real life, Fashion and Style Police and my outreach career, which has really taken off. The month was so fast pace, I started to neglect myself a little, and  wrote all about that some days ago. I am happy to say I have started to make some amends in my life.I now have a clear structured day with breaks and all. I have started to take out more time just for myself, I had a lovely spa day earlier this week, and it was magical. I am looking forward to the next one already.

I have also started losing the extra pounds I gained in the last couple of weeks, so I am very pleased with the Youtube work-out video tutorials I have been watching. I am also considering trying another Body Wrap, to step up my fitness routine. I tried a body wrap some months ago, and I have heard so many great things about the Slimming Solutions Wrap being a fab alternative to going to the gym, so I am hoping to try it for myself as soon as I can get my hands on one.

As far as my wardrobe is concerned, I know I did do quite a bit of summer shopping this year, I blame the crazy sweet sales, and I need to go on a spending ban like since last month, lol. But with all the shopping I did, I still need some pairs of Ladies Boots, because you can never have too many boots right? Plus I need to replace some old pairs.

I also didn’t get a single pair of new jeans, and I think I need at least 1 new pair. I like to go for quality when it comes to my jeans because I have realised the more you spend on your jeans, the better it looks and the longer you have it for. I currently have my eye on a few J Brand jeans and I think I need them all in my life, or at least in my wardrobe, if I could afford them all. I am so in love with these two in particular –

Dealing With Unexpected Costs

I am a planner but also a worrier. I like planning every detail in advance. So it comes as no surprise that every penny I have is accounted for. Since having my kids, I have become even more organised and more frugal. Life as a parent is very different to that of a single young child-free female living in Bristol. Before I had my kids and all the other responsibilities, there were so many things I could afford to buy without thinking twice, but all that has changed now. I am happy to say I am now a full-fledged responsible adult, with 2 toddlers, a mortgage and a business.

The truth about being a home owner means you have to deal with home improvements, emergencies and breakdowns. The bills never stop coming, and there is no agency or landlord to run to when appliances fall apart. That is where the responsibility comes in. When we have to deal with the shock of an unexpected cost, it literally throws me and our finances completely off-balance. A washing machine breaking down can drive any parent insane especially if your house is anything like mine. Our washing machine is always running. We always have piles and piles of clothes to wash. So washing every other day especially in the summer is quite normal in my house. So if the washing machine dares to break down, that would be classed as an emergency.

But then what happens when you have no funds to cover the unexpected cost of a breakdown but can’t survive without the appliance? That is where Vivus comes in. This company provides short-term loans of £100 to £300, to cover the costs of what you need sorting, and you pay back once you get paid, from 10 to 41 days. The best part of Vivus is you can get a decision online usually within minutes. Which means you may be able to get your appliance breakdown issue sorted on the same day, which is brillant.

Recent survey carried out by Which has also confirmed that payday loans are actually cheaper than unarranged overdrafts. So as a worrying mum, I like to know this is available for when I do need it because you never know these days. Life happens unexpected and the show must go on.

Have you ever had to deal with an expected cost? How did you handle it? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below, lets talk.
