Presents!!

A little while ago Cassie over at empty-purse.com held a competition to win two books on thrifty living. Well, I love free things, and I love free things about how to do things for free so naturally I entered, and I was so excited when I won!

P1020757

The books arrived on Saturday, so I've spent a happy weekend putting off my revision by reading them! I had read a review of City Chic by Megan at The Student Charade and had been interested in reading it for a while, whereas I am very very bad at arts and crafts, but I am definitely looking forward to attempting a few things from Funk it Up.

Inside Funk it Up (please excuse my ratty nail varnish!)

Anyway, thank you Cassie! You should all head over to her blog as she has loads of great tips on thrifting and cheap living (and I promise I'm not just saying this because she gave me things!)

Wow! Those books look great. Let us know what you think of them when you get a chance to read them - definitely looks like something I would want to check out! :)

I just won City Chic from a blog, as well - SavvySG. I have only read a bit of it so far, but I'm in love. Congrats on winning! :)

Thanks Harriet, glad they arrived! I always get paranoid that my parcels will get lost :)
