About Me

Hello and welcome to my thrifty little lifestyle blog.

I’m Cassie, a full-time blogger and magazine writer. I love to work with charities, clients and brands so please get in touch if you’d like to collaborate and create some amazing content together – check out my ‘Work With Me’ page.


My blog is a home from home for me and it’s where I spend most of my time. I use it to share my DIY projects, sewing tutorials, adventures, money-saving tips, budget recipes and everything I see that inspires me.

I like to discuss trends in fashion, footwear (Tuesday Shoesday!), design and interiors and I love to hunt out ways of getting the look for less, so I’m forever sharing thrifty projects and DIY makeovers to save money.

I am quite possibly the thriftiest person you’ll ever meet – my biggest gripe is paying for something new if I can get it cheaper or free just by hunting around or shopping secondhand – and I love spending time reusing, recycling and repurposing old clothing, furniture and household items.vintage retro caravan magazine diy carpet rug makeover project-22You might have already guessed, but I love to write my thrifty little blog and I really appreciate my lovely readers, because without you this blog would be a very quiet place!

I love to hear your comments on my articles and please do get in touch to let me know what you’d like to see on my blog in the future, because I’d like to be able to make you as happy as you make me 🙂

In terms of blogging here are my proudest achievements – all of which wouldn’t have happened without YOU!


As you can tell I’m very proud to call myself a blogger and am SO pleased that so many readers are enjoying my writing. Thank you all so much for keeping this blog running and making me very happy indeed! 😀       blog awards widget

  1. I was worried that this only included costumes for children. Wish you well on your business but I don’t intend on having children. Then I opened your store, ahh, excellent, I see “adult interests” as well ^_^ Now to ask my GF. Cheers. Great idea for a business, she used to have an awesome pair of wings but we never see them in stores now.
