Lately I’ve been clearing my closet, like massively. I’ve talked about having a clearout  and also the fact that I’m just gaining weight… Lack of space, a change in body shape and if I’m honest, a bit of a change in style as well, are prompting me to shed clothes and accessories like there is no tomorrow. I am really struggling each morning to put outfits together and sometimes I feel like getting a flame thrower and just starting from 0 again…

Just this weekend and after a few weeks of Spring cleaning, I ditched five bin bags full of stuff and it was very liberating. The reality is, a lot of my clothes really don’t fit anymore and while it would be great to be able to go shopping, I really can’t afford to buy new clothes at the moment (I’m going travelling soon) . When Joe Blogs contacted me about a blogging competition to win £1000 worth of Yumi dresses, I jumped at the opportunity. I have a couple of dresses from the brand and they’re usually so cute, that I wouldn’t really mind adding a few more to my closet and as I need attire that fits me,  getting a whole new wardrobe would be amazing.

Last weekend I was invited by Joe Blogs to attend another great event, that promised to be not only fun but to also get the creative juices flowing.

When I was in school back in the 90s, I had the idea of using the washing machine drum as a lamp but never really did it, so it only took me some 20 years to actually do something. Also it seems like other people had the same idea – great minds think alike and all that!
