Most of the items in my wardrobe are actually secondhand. I don’t like paying full price on items because I know I can possibly get it cheaper. This is why I love secondhand shopping. Opshopping/Thrifting is something I’ve done for years but since last year, I really got into other ways to buy secondhand. I thought I’d share all the ways I find nice second hand items and my tips and tricks.
I think we can all collectively agree that this year has been a wild ride. 2020 has not been an easy year. I can list quite a few things that made this year difficult, painful and heartbreaking but despite all of that, this year has also been a year of discovery. I’ve learnt to slow down, make the most of every situation and try new things. It made me think of my ‘2020 Discoveries’.
These are the things, activities or places I’ve tried, discovered and liked/loved this year. I want to focus on the positive things so I thought I’d share them with you.
So I have been in a fitness journey the past couple of months. Since I found out about my deficiency, I made my health more of a priority. I finally joined a gym, got personal trainer sessions to get a routine and this week alone, I’ve been to a Les Mils Bodyattack and a Bodycombat class. I’m writing this quite sore but feeling stronger than I’ve ever been.
Since making this change, I realised I needed more activewear and just at the right time, I was approached by Postie to work with them and pick out a few pieces. I gladly accepted and I wanted to share my great bargain finds with you.
So it’s been a couple of months since my trip to the Philippines. I’ve been meaning to blog about it the trip itself but I really haven’t gone through all my actual photos. I thought I’d share the stuff I bought first and give you an idea of how much shopping I actually did. Today’s post is all about the accessories I bought. I think I went a bit overboard with wallets but it was the main thing on my list to buy.
A couple of months ago, I was approached by Postie to check out their range and pick a few outfits. When I did it it was for the autumn/winter season but I still wanted to share what I got because the pieces I chose can also be worn this spring as there are days when it’s still cold. Postie has also released their spring collection so I’ll share a few pieces I’ve been eyeing up from the new range.
I go away next week (YAY!) so in preparation, I’ve bought some summer clothing. I’ve mainly bought them at opshops as per my previous haul but today’s post is some brand new stuff I picked up from Cotton On from my first online order on their website.
Opshopping or thrifting is my favourite way to shop. Most of my clothes and even bags are from opshops. I love bargains and finding one of a kind pieces that not everyone would have. Savemart is one of the places I go opshopping because there’s one close to where I live and it’s huge that I’m bound to find something I like.
If you’ve been a follower of my blog or other social media, you’d know how much I love Kmart. Kmart is one of my favourite places to shop because you can basically get anything there for such an affordable price. It’s been a while since my last Kmart haul so today is a mix of clothing, homewares, beauty and travel pieces. I also got some on sale which is even better.
The busiest week in fashion is done and dusted and after an exciting (but exhausting) week of going to shows, I thought I’d round up my third NZ Fashion Week here on the blog. I went to 13 shows in total which is a feat for me since I attended shows in between work. This year’s fashion week has been the best so far and I have so many highlights.
