The Great Sales That No One Is Telling You About

So everyone is posting about the Nordstorm sale and although I like Nordstorm as much as the next person, I feel like there is no point in me showing you the same things and items everyone else will be. Instead I have decided to bring you a few of my favourite sale items that aren't from the Nordstrom sale. I have chosen to show you American Eagle because although I love so many of the sale items it is particularly the crop tops that got me, there are so many variations, there's a style for everyone and every mood. I love it. Shop, shop, shop . . .

Reclaim Your Summer

So as you may know I am huge lover of sustainable fashion. Reclaimed, eco-friendly, up-cycled, vintage I love it all, not just because it is good for our little old planet but because you find unique things that you just don't find from new fashion. Wandering the Amsterdam Vintage fashion shops like Episode and Laura Dols and 1953 Retro Chic it was amazing seeing such a fabulous range of unqiue items, I haven't seen anything like it in a long time. I mean there were 3 racks of velvet, lace and silk shirts . . .

So the jist of this, in case you hadn't noticed, is that reclaimed is the way to go and as I can't take you all around Amsterdam with me I have decided to revisit one of my old favourites The ASOS Green Room aka The Eco Edit and show you what new pieces they have to offer for your summer. Last year I shared The Green Room with you, inviting you to Reclaim Your Wardrobe and now a year on I am again inviting you to reclaim your summer. 

If you want to know more about the reclaimed fashion brands visit the brand page of the Green Room or see more brands here.

Find Comfort In Lace

Comfort is essential when travelling. End of. Don't get me wrong I love getting dressed up and going out as much as the next person, but when your travelling around new city and have a limited amount of time to explore, the priority it getting around and seeing it and on a budget that requires comfort. For most of our wanderings around Amsterdam we have walked as it's a city with such beauty you can't not, and student budget travelling doesn't exactly cover luxury travel, however Uber has been the saviour every now and again.

4 Fashion & Travel Blogger You Need To Know

I can, and often do, sit for hours on end reading through other people's blogs and scrolling through Pinterest. Not because I have to, or because I am a blogger and think I should, but because I simply love it. There's nothing better than finding a blog that you love and can immerse yourself into, transporting you to another place (in my case usually a sunnier place) and inspiring you in so many ways. Even now on my travels, while sitting having my morning coffee in our house in Amsterdam, I have found time to have a search through the blog world and see what gems I can find. 

I have rounded up 4 of my favourite fashion and travel blogs, and every week will be sharing a new favourite of mine somewhere on the blog or social media as part of #BlogWatchWednesday to show you how awesome the blogging world is, and to inspire you to explore and see what blogger buddies there are out there.

Amsterdam: Our New Home

We made it.

We are safely unpacked and settled into our new home in Amsterdam and I can't believe how at home we both feel here already. The apartment is perfect for us with a little garden out the back and the comfiest sofa in the world, it is our relaxing zone before the partying of the rest of the trip. I will share more about Amsterdam in the coming weeks but for the moment here is our home away from home.
