How to be a savvy shopper- online coupon codes

As someone who wears glasses fulltime I know just how expensive it can be when you need to update your prescription or even when you just feel like some new frames! I recently got some new sunglasses so I know just how painful it can be.

I like to shop around to get the best deals and don’t just go by what’s available at the shops. Looking online is definitely becoming a popular option – even with buying frames or sunglasses. Many companies are now utilising software which allows you to try on glasses from the comfort of your living room (or bedroom). How cool is that?

So I recently came across Australian Coupon Codes, a super cool website that houses various discount codes to Australian-based retailers. The website is kind of a one-stop-shop with various categories and retailers taking part. It’s a great way to save money (and time). These days, we are all pretty time poor and don’t want to visit the shops to be constantly hassled by the sales assistant. So this is a great option for those who want to save and want to purchase an item quickly and without hassle.

I looked into the Vision Direct Discount Code as I wanted to find a well-known online retailer for glasses and sunglasses but still save some money in the process. I was actually blown-away by the options available via Vision Direct. They even stock some of my favourite brands such as Ray-Ban and Versace. The styles are not limited and pretty much the same as what you would find in a retail shop. If anything there are even more styles available. Super happy!

So if you are looking to save money and time, there’s no better way to get started than through discount coupon codes. Let me know how your shopping goes!

How to create a romantic, vintage mood in your home using lighting

I have many dreams of one day owning my own house. I even know exactly what I want it to look like – wooden floors, exposed bricks, high ceilings and of course, romantic lighting.

As you all know I am really into the art deco and vintage farmhouse style look, so I teamed up with Urban Lighting to choose some light fixtures that I would love to have for my own house someday.

This pendant light is art deco style to a tee. I just love this brass colored feature light. I think this would be perfect for lighting in a sitting room - I can already picture it in my head!

Seriously, if I was an industrial designer this is the sort of light I would design! The wonderful leaf design is such an amazing feature, and it looks so unique. This would definitely be a good conversation starter. Depending on your style, I think this chandelier would be equally wonderful in a bedroom or a living room.

I have officially found the lighting I want in my future home office! How perfect are these pendant lights? I love the industrial meets vintage style - perfect for my future home.

So what sort of lighting do you like best? Let me know in the comments below!

Showpo Trendy Workwear Style

I was recently sent a lovely skirt by Showpo, an Australian-based company that stocks trendy workwear. I was sent the whirlwind mini skirt in black. It is absolutely beautiful and wonderful to twirl in. It has a full skirt and is the perfect 1950s style skirt.

Unfortunately the skirt didn't fit me and I would recommend sizing up in this skirt as they run small. For reference I was sent the size 12 but it fits more like an 8-10.

Overall very happy with the quality and customer service from Showpo. The parcel arrived very quickly after it was posted.

I would recommend Showpo - just be sure to order the correct size!

In my Activewear

As an avid exerciser I am always on the lookout for quality clothing for the gym. Of course I shop at the usual stores like Lorna Jane and Lululemon however sometimes it’s nice to go for something different to stand out from the clique.

I recently came across Lole, a stylish active wear brand. I was pretty impressed with their clothing so decided to come up with a little wish-list on the items that I would be interested in buying. I am really into stylish gym wear but also stuff I could wear casually on the weekend for example
Here are my favourite active wear items from Lole, perfect for the gym or casual

Perfect colour and interesting back details. I would wear this to the gym for a low-impact class like yoga or for a casual weekend stroll along the beach. The options are endless!

With the cooler weather just a couple of months away in Australia, I am keen for a light jacket I can throw on after a workout. This little hoodie looks perfect to wear after a workout or even at uni!

Perfect for the gym or anywhere these casual active wear tights would even look cute worn under a short dress or top. I love the capri length too.

A perfect throw on for low-impact classes or to wear before or after a gym workout. This top would even look amazing dressed up with some dark jeans, heels and a sparkly handbag for a night out on the town!

Nothing is better than when you don’t need to change your bra when you get to the gym for your workout! I tend to always wear sports bras on days I am going to the gym after work and this one looks just perfect and comfortable – a must have if you are going to be wearing it all day.

Take a look at the website and let me know what items you like the best!
