As I started writing this blog post we were still enjoying very unseasonal, very warm weather and it is glorious and I love it! February is of course a shorter month and for that reason, and as well as it being between seasons, I chose it again to do a No Spend month ... last year I blogged about it every week, this year I decided to update you at the end during my being fifty and fab post.
Well my sole aim was to reduce the number of deliveries and new items of clothing arriving into my wardrobe and for the most part I did achieve this as I have bought far far less then I usually do. Last year however I was more committed than this year - a few bits have sneaked in, I had a voucher for The White Company that I put 'towards' a couple of items and I have ordered a scarf from Sweet Bea and a new top from The Wendy House (neither have arrived yet)!
Hi everyone! How did half term go? Or have most of my readers left school holidays behind? My daughter finishes sixth form this summer so although she is now independent we still enjoy time together at half term and school holidays. This week we treated ourselves to some mother and daughter time at Nirvana Spa near Wokingham.
I met Wendy last year through the Business Girls Network and popped into her beautiful home based shop - The Wendy House - to take a proper look around! Wendy is one of the loveliest, chattiest and friendliest ladies you could meet, she is bubbly and enthusiastic and clearly loves what she is doing. She also has a sharp creative eye for choosing items for her shop and presenting them all in the large bright room she has above her garage at her home on the outskirts of Maidenhead in Berkshire.
I of course came away with a few purchases! And then went back for a few more bits for Christmas gifts and then ordered one or two more things which Wendy posted to me! Like the pretty and bright coloured Powder gloves in the photo below.
Wendy is proof of the importance of embracing life in midlife and that it is possible to change careers and do something different, something you love, that it is never too late.
So I asked Wendy if she would share her story on my blog and offer my readers a discount too - so you will find both a discount and details of a giveaway she is currently offering - and if you are a scarf addict like me then you will love the giveaway! All details are below.
Three years ago I wrote my first blog post with little plan of where I was heading or any real idea of how to blog!! But here I am three years later, still blogging, still learning and most importantly still enjoying it.
So I thought for my anniversary post I'd share some facts about me you might not know:
