Thrifty Thursday, Isabella Oliver 50% off day, Oasis bargain top, H&M Chino bargain and discount party invitations!!

Apologies for the last two missed Thrifty Thursday posts, I was on holiday. I don't know why it's called a holiday, more like a work yourself round the clock entertaining children type thing. Anyway, after the excesses of the holiday, I am not just being thrifty, I am not spending anything at all, ever again!  But I'm sure all my readers have a few pounds to spare...

First I want to give a mention to the lovely people at Isabella Oliver for sorting out a lovely shirt dress for me to take on my holidays, it was bought on a 50% off day but underwent several swaps and emergency next day deliveries to get to me on time. I am not willing to put a picture of myself on here wearing the dress as I look pale as a ghost at the moment. But here is the pic from the website.

I admit for most people IO is a bit pricey, but they do these great one off days where sometimes things are as much as 50% off, well worth looking out for as the cut and quality is great.

There are lots of summer sales on at the moment, and Oasis, as one of my favourite shops, is worth a browse. There are lots of dresses on sale, but nothing mega good value. However this t shirt is pretty good value at £15 as I think I would wear it forever; work, home with jeans, it looks really comfy and wearable. I've lost count of the number of times I've bought something then when I go to my wardrobe in the morning I don't want to wear the new item as it's impractical, or worse, uncomfortable!

My husband has officially banned me from online shopping at H&M. Although the stuff is very bargainous, to compensate I buy lots of it! I was interested to see they have a sale on at the moment, but have to restrain myself from purchasing. I was slightly annoyed to see some trousers I recently paid full price for (was £14.99) have gone into the sale, they are now £7.49. They look like rags on the website, but are very versatile, comfy, cool and easy to wear. I have the beige version.

Following a great #yorkshirehour networking twitter event last night, I made contact with the lovely Natalie from HoneyApple who provides gorgeous children's party invites, and she's given you, my readers, a great discount!

And finally, I really must mention the Fairy Hobmother  who is spreading joy and love amongst all bloggers at the moment. Comment on this post and you might be next!

I received no financial compensation to write this post but Isabella Oliver were very nice to me and shipped my item ASAP. Actually, thinking about it, The Fairy Hobmother sent me a gift voucher.
