Phew! I'm almost there. Whilst I absolutely love everything I've done so far with the garden, what would a garden be without somewhere lovely to sit and take in the results of your efforts? Not to mention some beautiful plants! Now I'm somewhat sad to say I am rather far from green fingered... 

So you may know that over the last two weeks I've been giving my garden a little makeover on a budget - if you don't know I'm surprised as I'm so pleased with it I tell anyone who will listen! Whilst I wanted to create a little oasis for myself, it had to be affordable so I turned to the bargain stores of the retail parks...

I'm so excited to write this post I could burst! Its rather far from my 'usual' content as a blogger, even though I've been moving towards more 'Lifestyle' content for a while. So, welcome to part one of a little mini series of how I've managed to makeover my garden on a budget!

Makeup No Buy - 1 Month Update - What I've learnt so far

Remember I said I was putting myself on a total makeup buying ban? Bet you didn't think I could do it did you?

Well I'm pleased to say I did it! One whole month buying no makeup whatsoever.

One quick look in my wardrobe (ahem, 'dressing room') you'd know I'm far from a Minimalist; but you may have noticed that in recent years minimalism is gaining real popularity. In fact if you hopped on to YouTube you might well think there's somewhat of a minimalist movement.

Almost 18 months ago now, I totally fell in LOVE with Makeup. Don't get me wrong, I've been wearing some form of makeup since my early to mid teens, but by my late 20's I had settled with just one bag of makeup mainly filled with MAC products.
