Lady Bug Says ... Little Miss Turn-ups

72 followers! Wow :) Big thank you to you all for taking the time to read what I ramble on about!! I have been collecting some items for a giveaway which I think I will do when I get to 100 followers, hopefully that won't be too long!
Well, as you may have noticed I am rather liking flashing my ankles in turned up skinny jeans at the moment! Think it makes an outfit slightly more summery by flashing a little skin!
Yesterday my sister and I went up to Cardiff to see my step-sister at uni. We indulged in a little shopping and a lot of Nandos! Here is what I wore ...
Steve Madden boots, TK Maxx £35, Jeans, Primark £8, Grey tshirt, H&M £4, Studded and striped cardigan, TK Maxx £17, Scarf, Charity shop 50p
Outfit Total - £63.50
My lovely sister took pity on me being poor and feeling sorry for myself and bought me these beautiful shoes :)
I think I may of over eaten a little at Nandos as I spent most of the night awake feeling rather ill! So after 2 hours sleep today's outfit was a variation on yesterdays!

Shoes, Primark £18(but free for me :)!), Skinny jeans, Primark £8, Tshirt, H&M £4, Blazer, Primark £13, Necklace, Primark £3, Bag, Primark £9, Scarf, Charity shop 50p
Outfit total - £37.50

Lady Bug Says ... Simply Does It.

Now then, I have a confession. I know I said I was on a shopping ban, but I kind of strayed. In my defence I have been looking for the perfect pair of nude heels for as long as I can remember. So when I stumbled across these beauties, with the perfect size heel, patent nude colour and only £10 I just had to buy them. Plus cute bows, who could refuse!

Today I fancied a super simple outfit. I am loving ankle flashing jeans at the moment, turn ups are the way forward!

Nude heels, Primark £10, Black jeans, Matalan £10, Tshirt, Hand me down from my sister

Outfit total - £20

Lady Bug Says ... Top 10 TK Maxx Tips!

I have had a few people asking me how I manage to find decent things in TK Maxx, so I thought I would produce a list of my top 10 tips!
- Do a dedicated TK Maxx trip. You have a greater chance of finding things if you are not rushing to get to the rest of the shops!
- Look through all the rails, things often get put back in the wrong places! Fab pair of jeans amongst prom dresses, who would of thought!
- Do not limit yourself to looking only within your size range. With items coming from hundreds of stockists it means a generous size 6 could actually be a 10-12(I kid you not!) or a stingy size 14 could be a perfect size 10!
- Shoes and bags are one of the main areas you can really make a saving on designer products.
- Check out their beauty/toiletry products, Tigi hair care 1/2 price, St Moriz fake tan(essentially the same as St Tropez!) at £4.99, Nails Inc sets at amazing prices!
- If in doubt, buy! It may go against the grain but the chances are they only have 1 or 2 of the item in your size so it probably won't still be there when you come back next weekend! With a 14 day return policy you can always return it if you change your mind!
- Always remember to check for missing belts on dress/laces on shoes/faulty zips,things you could replace/repair yourself. If it doesn't state on the label that the item has been reduced due to said missing belt/faulty zip etc there could be further discount available!
- TK Maxx now have a website, so you can get your bargain fix from the comfort of your sofa!
- Don't forgot the home section! It is a treasure trove of designer kitchenware, amazing garden sculptures, books, storage trunks and so much more!
- You need 2 things in TK Maxx, time and patience!

TK Maxx have not asked me to provide these tips, I am just responding to questions I have been asked :)

Lady Bug Says ... My Favourite Fluff Ball :)

Evening my lovelies. Hope you all had a good weekend, even if the weather wasn't up to much!

As usual, I have lost my camera lead so am doing a post with some photos I already have on my computer. So today I thought I would introduce you to my cat, Missy.

She is around 6 years old(though not much bigger than a kitten) and it a tabby moggy.

She is a little princess and will only sleep on duvets and blankets!
