As a lover of all things antique and pretty, I like collecting big old iron keys. There’s just something so mysterious and a little bit ‘Alice in Wonderland’ about them, and I remember as a little girl I used to love collecting keys as I thought they were really important! Now I’m a grown up.. I still like collecting them, and I use them to add decorative features to my bedroom. I simply tie pieces of colourful ribbon through the keys,…

A few months ago I spotted a stunning dress on the River Island sale rack. It was one I recognised from a few seasons ago, because I remembered how much I loved it then! It was this 50’s style cherry print summer dress, but, it wasn’t reduced just because it was old. The price of the dress was only £5, reduced from £30. This was because the dress had only three buttons up the front, so it was faulty. It was…
