I’m a young mother of one with the long lived dream of getting my hands stuck into fashion. Up until now I have been waiting and waiting for an opportunity to arise but it never did. Now although I couldn’t get my ‘foot in the door’ as they say. I’ve taken it upon myself to follow the fashion happenings within the blogosphere and write a blog detailing any and everything I feel is fashion relevant to me.
Blogging is the thing for me rather than a journal because that way I can share my ideas and visions with all of you fellow bloggers out there. Now not only is this blog about fashion but it’s also about looking good for less because as fellow mothers are aware;
if we look after the pennies the pounds will look after themselves
I’ll be covering many topics on my blog. Anything that tickles my fancy. I never have limits so will not limit myself to fashion only. Another thing I love to do is grab a bargain and save money, so much discussed topics will include:
Money saving and more . .
I would love to connect with Look magazine via blogging as I have been a devout reader since it’s first issue. I think I speak for a lot of women who buy fashion weeklys when I say that Look Magazine inspires the everyday woman to do more to look and feel good.
By the end of 2014 my hopes regarding this blog are simply to be read and shared by others. Maybe help a person or two with some of my hints or tips, stories or any other inspirational messages I put out there into the blogosphere.
I mentioned the Bay Trend in my previous post but what exactly is this? Well not only do I call this a trend but believe this is an art in itself. It’s the art of buying an on trend item for a fraction of the price; pre loved (used/worn) on eBay.
This all started when looking on eBay for a specific dress I saw in river island but couldn’t afford at the time. I tried my luck with eBay and lo and behold, it was there: “Black River Island Bodycon Dress Size 10 Worn Once”. With 2 hours and 4 minutes left on this auction I placed my bid of £2.99. I waited patiently expecting to win the dress after the auction ended but no, someone beat me to it and the auction ended with a winning bid of £6.80. After two weeks of searching and bidding on eBay I finally won my dress for £66 less than what it cost in River Island. I was a happy bunny and that’s the moment eBay stole my heart. I asked myself “Why spend £100’s when I can spend £1’s”. From that moment on I decided, it would be the Bay Trend that was set to style me for the foreseeable future.
So to sum it all up, The Bay Trend is simply seeing a key fashion piece you like in store, online or advertised somewhere else and finding the same piece on eBay for a bargain price.

As a young mummy I still love to look scrummy. Before becoming a mum I’d spend about £200 a month on keeping up with the latest fashion and trends. £40 on a pair of shoes and the rest on clothes and accessories. And why? To look high street sassy. Now I can do just that for under £5.
Things that usually sound too good to be true probably are but unless you can’t stomach the thought of wearing something that’s been worn at least once before then this is too good and true!
How do I do it? EBAY is my answer. A few key words here and there followed by my size and there I have it; high street heaven for a low cost price on my iPhone or laptop in a couple of clicks. Now you may think of these items as second hand but what’s more on trend than vintage at the moment? Whether it’s vintage or pre loved, it’s my own new trend; the ‘bay trend’.
