Shop Your Stash - Monthly Blog Challenge

A few days ago, Hollie over at Pretty Big Butterflies had a great idea for a monthly blog challenge. As soon as I read about it and she invited people to join in I wanted to be a part of it! And so.. introducing my very first Shop Your Stash post, a blog challenge that has been born today! YAY!





"This is all about finding a gem in what you already own and creating a blog post on it. This is to let go a little of the stress that comes with being a blogger - even if it is just once a month. Rummage through your beauty products and climb through those clothes draws. You might surprise yourself!"

To be honest with you, this post being today is pretty perfect for me. This weekend saw me reach the end of my own Shop My Wardrobe for Lent challenge, where I decided to give up clothes shopping for lent! I am very proud to say I did it! WOO HOO! 

I tried not to blog too much about my clothes shop ban, simply because I didn't want to blog about outfits I had already told you about & fill the pages with needless drivel (even though I do that sometimes). At times I did want to buy a new dress - Pink Clove and ASOS have been my enemies throughout the last 40 days, simply because their New Arrivals sections have been BEAUTIFUL!

However, being the selfie queen I am I have shared more than a few pics on social media over the last few weeks, so I thought I would combine the Shop Your Stash post with Shopping My Wardrobe for Lent and show you some of the things I have been wearing over the last few weeks!


L-R 99 dresss from Yours Clothing, Old top I think from Simply Be, ASOS Curve dress, New Look Inspire dress

Giving up clothes shopping was hard (I am not going to lie) but I am really glad I kept it up and proved to myself that I could do it! This Shop Your Stash challenge has come at the right time for and I am looking forward to seeing what I can do for future posts!
