    Screen shopping – Feb finds at Donna

    I spend so, so, SO much time browsing online clothing stores that if you asked me where to get something I would be able to tell you straight away and even be able to tell you how much it is. You could say I’m a shopping expert if there is such a thing. So, I thought I would turn it into something useful – screen shopping (it’s like window shopping but online). I will share my findings with you, give you ideas on how to wear them and where to get what bargains. It might inspire you to experiment with your style, help you find what you have been looking for…

    How I got to where I am with my body

    I can remember feeling like I was fat from the age of 10. I always felt like I was the biggest one in my group of friends, which when I look back now, couldn’t have been further from the truth.

It got worse as I got older and reached a very serious peak when I discovered my first set of stretchmarks at the age of 13. At the time I cried, I hated myself, I hated that this had happened to me.

    A love story & giveaway

    My husband and I will be celebrating our 11th anniversary on the 20th of February this year.

    I am what I choose to become

    Everyone has a past, their own personal story book of experiences, hardships, blessings, losses and all of those wonderful and not-so-wonderful things that life puts us through. I know that many of us have faced battles while growing up whether it was going through a parent’s divorce, facing poverty, losing a parent or family member, moving around a lot. There could be a number of things that you went through that really tested you but then also molded you into who you are today. My childhood has always been something I feel would make a good book. Not just my personal book but a book I actually write and share…

    Tips for buying denim jeans

    I work with denim all day, every day, so I like to think I know a thing or two about this popular choice of fabric. If you don’t know the ins and outs of denim, it can be so hard to find that perfect pair of jeans and you won’t even know why which is why I am going to share some of the secrets with you today. THE FIT/SPEC Most retailers do not use the same spec for every pair of jeans. This basically means if you walk into a store and see a hundred pairs of skinny jeans, not of all those skinny jeans will fit the same,…
