Mid-year musings, sales to check out and something I’m really really excited about!!!
When things are looking up! Yay! I hope you are all doing well. I wanted to share a little light and positivity today, as the sun is shining and I am feeling good! If you aren’t too, maybe you can be by the end of this post?!
All cheesiness aside, I am in a good mood because I’ve been staying on task this week and CRUSHING IT! Nah, just kidding! I’ve just been ticking off my to-do list and man, that feels great. Earlier this week we said goodbye to the financial year and with that, I managed to sneak in a cheeky last-minute tech purchase that I am SO over the moon about.
MY NEW VIDEO PAL
I’ve been going on and on (and on) for years now about getting a pocket-size, handbag-friendly camera to film video and vlogs with and I finally got one! After all that time, so many visits to the stores to look at and feel which one felt right for me, I committed. So today, I’ve been messing around a little with vlogging. You may know I’ve shared approx one (yep, just the one, no ‘approx’ about it) vlog before and I always wanted to do more. However, I am slooooow at the vlogging thing, so don’t @ me. Over the years I’d watched various vlogs and didn’t always really feel like I had found the way I wanted to make my own. But in the past year or two, I’ve honestly just felt like I developed more of an idea behind what kind of content I want to be creating across all of my platforms (how are there so many!). Video content included.
Good things take time and I know it will take me practice to get it all right but at least I feel more confident in my ideas and equipment and plan. SO, more to come! Yay!
MID-YEAR SALE AT SHOPBOP
How crazy have all of the sales been of late? I swear everyone is tempting me at the moment with sales and I am pretty much tapped out. One of the sales I wanted to share with you is the Shopbop sale, which is on now for Shopbop loyalty members. For non-members, it will be starting later today.
I’ve talked about this before, but people often still ask me how I buy designer pieces for less. Honestly, I do my planning and research first, then I have this strategy… On the Shopbop website, I log in and go through my favourite brands, adding things I love to my wish list. Each time the big sale codes come up, I take a look at my wardrobe, my wishlist, and then search for the pieces I have been missing or truly coveting. I signed up years ago to be a Loyalty VIP member. It allows me all sorts of perks like early sale access, back-in-stock alerts, early access to new arrivals, and birthday discounts.
This is one of my main tips when it comes to online shopping and how people manage to secure those coveted items.
THE SUMMER SALE DETAILS
Running until the 5th, take an extra 25% off certain sale items, making some up to 75% off. That’s HUGE! I’ve seen some incredible pieces on sale, so it’s worth getting in quick. You might have seen me unbox my recent Shopbop delivery, which was an incredible Paco Rabanne bag, that I’ll shoot to share with you soon. It was 70% off so I scored big time! All you need to then do is look for items labeled ‘KEY STYLE’ and use the code: SUMMER at the checkout.
I am hoping to be back on here in the next couple of days to share a journal-style post with a lot of the different things I’ve been up to and loving. In the meantime, check out my latest styling videos on IGTV, I have two going up this week. One uses ten capsule wardrobe items to share up to 16 outfits! Major! That was a lot of outfit changing, so please let me know which looks you would recreate. haha Take care!
