What’s new / Budgettips

I always feel that my budget is fighting against what is trending. That little voice inside my head always says to me: ‘You really like does …., don’t you? Just buy them!’ Unfortunatly I am not rich (at all) and my bank account doesn’t like me spending all that money. I have found some ways to indulge myself in the new trend, but don’t spend to much. Here are some budgettips:

1. Go Outlet shopping. I am really lucky to live about 5 min away from a pretty big outletcenter.
2. Go sample shopping. Follow some blogs who will give you more information about where/when.
3. Go to second hand/vintage shops.
4. Go on Ebay and buy second hand.
5. Find out which online shops offer free delivery and affordable clothes. I find new online shops using Fashiolista. I will make a list of my favorite online shops soon.
6. Never buy something in a online shop without using a discount code. Just use google and you pretty much find some codes for every online shop there is.
7. Don’t buy the real thing but search for a real nice knock-off. I will make another post about this topic.
8. Make a list before you go (online) shopping. Then you only buy things you really need.
9. Clean out you closet, you will find things you forgotten about (feels like shopping).
10. Sell you stuff and make money instead of spending it.


I would just die having this closet.

Hope these tips will help you to become a better (online) shopper and you are able to save some money. Let me know if you want to add some tips? I can sure use them.

What’s new / Fashiolista

Well, not really new. Just to show my Dutch pride (Fashiolista is founded by Dutchies) I have to share this with all of you.


Fashiolista helps you save & share your greatest fashion finds from all over the web. With the special Love button, you can save your fashion favorites from nearly every online store in one convenient place. Your personal Fashiolista profile will become the a wish list of items that you love, want, or that just inspire you.

Best of all, you can browse the profiles created by other Fashiolista members. Browsing other people’s fashion finds is a great way to get fresh inspiration. The members come from all over the world: New York, London, to Rio de Janeiro & Tokyo. Among them are many of the top fashion bloggers and influencers.

I think it is the most convenient tool, since facebook. It works the same as Pinterest. You can save all your fashion finds from all different webshops in one place, get inspired by other and find new webshops. I never forget where I saw that beautifull blouse or pair earrings. Fashiolista also has a bunch of extra’s for fashion bloggers.  Fashiolista is also available as a free app for your Iphone/HTC/Samsung and Blackberry.

And I love it
