BEACH CHIC & CHEAP.


HOLIDAY........Splurge or Steal!


Flight's booked, hotel arranged, sunshine and blue skies here I come!


If like me, your credit card is maxed out after paying for the holiday? Then have a look at my purse friendly High Street alternatives.



The look is still every bit as chic, and sassy as their designer big sisters, but at a fraction of the cost!




SPLURGE.........

Just don't drop your choc ice down this one, it so ruins your inner Halle Berry Bond girl look!









Cooler than cool retro chic Sunglasses £10 River Island








Can't afford the Marant's......?
