the lovely rachel asked me to stand in for her at ohnorachio today whilst she's off enjoying her birthday/holiday, and proving i'm not one bit jealous (not even a tiny bit) i made an imaginary birthday wish list for myself (ha!)

AND! wish rachel a happy birthday whilst you're at it!

**happy birthday rachel***

thirty ways to save a pound

first of all, apologies for the epic blog post! this month has been one of those months where i seem to have no money, yet *everything* needs to be paid for #lesighhhhhhhhhh
coincidently, i was contacted by moneysupermarket to take part in another blogger challenge, (you can read my last entry here) this time, they've asked me to share 30 ways to save £1, to celebrate 30 years of the one pound coin! so i thought give it a go ... hopefully you'll find some of them useful!

she sells sea shells

if you follow me on instagram or twitter, you may have heard me talk (moan) about a little thing called shred ... incase you were wondering, i have taken on the challenge of the 30 day shred, accompanied by the wonderful rachel : today is day 17, so we're over half way! it's tough but i'm definitely feeling like it's making a difference.

in an effort to stay motivated, rachel came up with the awesome idea of making our own (prettier) version of these 'pounds to lose' & 'pounds lost' jars. there is a cute little tutorial on rachel's blog - she has filled hers with the cutest little dinosaurs, it made me a bit jealous!
i decided to fill mine with shells, since i have amassed a fair few on our long walks down the beach.

all this talk of shells has made me want to draw them ... maybe i should draw each shell i put into the 'yay!' jar!
