About me


about me pic

Hi, I’m Gayle and welcome to my blog.

Let’s get acquainted, I am a busy Mum of 2 little girls aged 3 and 7 months who keep me on my toes. This blog is about all the stuff that I find useful. It includes a mix of beauty, fashion, food, lifestyle and family. These days skincare is a special interest of mine – as an under slept 35 year old, I need all the help I can get.

My aim is to achieve a stylish lifestyle, on more of a shoestring budget. My philosophy is quality over quantity every time. If I think something is worth saving for, then I’ll start collecting my pennies. Or wait for birthdays and Christmas, or if I can find a more affordable alternative then happy days!

I do a lot of research before parting with my hard earned cash, so if I’ve decided to splurge on something there’s usually a good reason behind it. At least that’s what I tell myself as I hand over the plastic.

The idea behind this blog is to inspire women to treat themselves now and again – we work hard and we deserve it. To look for more affordable alternatives that do just as good a job when we need to, to share ideas and have fun.

I hope that by taking some time out to read this site, I can give you some new ideas to try. I hope you have a cup of tea to hand, and ideally some chunks of chocolate.

A few facts about me I enjoy reading, cooking and baking. I hate the gym, and try to get in shape with home based workouts (thank heavens for You Tube) and enjoy pilates classes. Hmm baking and exercise, there’s maybe a lesson in there somewhere?.  I’m definitely of the “everything in moderation” mindset, which can be applied with great flexibility. Crisps and wine are my major vices, and I’m partial to a good G&T.

Also I love getting outside with our girls, Northern Irish weather permitting! I’ll share some ideas of places to see and things to do, and of course if you have any other ideas let me know.
