Another must have...

Hi again

This season there is a lot of "must haves" and here is yet another one from me...
Rivets are a big hit everywhere and on everything - only your imagination sets the limets...
You will find the rivets on shoes, bags, gloves, jackets, bracelets, hairbands etc.

Becaurse it is such a big trend you can find it in all highstreetshops ranging from the most expensive ones to (our all time favourite) H and M... But the absolut best thing about this trend is, that you can make it yourself!!

I have turned a pair of shoes from last seacon into a faschion scoop just by adding some rivets! and it cost me next to nothing! So go to your local hobby store and get your rivets - and 1,2,3 you have your one fashionable unike item for this season! I used them on my old shoes - but you can also use them on e.g. bags and clothes...

Regards Me

A season must have

One of this seasons must haves is fur...

You can find fur in every shop these days and there is a lot of different variants such as gloves, hats, wests, coats etc. As long as you have something furry - you are on the right fashion track.......

Personally I have narrowed it down to (so far...) a collar in fur - I bought it at H and M for 80 kr. (about 10 Euro.). So to follow this trend, you do not have to spend your months pay - and we do like that!!

I have posted a few photos you can use as inspiration when choosing your "furry friend" this winter.

Regards Me

Uniqlo - hottest new shop in Paris

I love Paris and as we all know it is supposed to be the hearth of fashion. Nevertheless, for someone looking not to spend too much money, it is not always easy to find places to shop. Sure the high street shops are of course located on all the main streets of the city, but for me who lives in Barcelona where the clothes are cheaper it would not be worth shopping there.
But there was one new shop that I had to visit; Uniqlo. Uniqlo is a Japanese shop, which in Europe currently you will only find in London and Paris. It is supposed to be the Japanese competition to HandM, Zara, Mango and co, offering to their customer good quality, modern clothes in all colours for reasonable money. The shop in Paris opened op little over 2 weeks ago, so needless to say the interest for the new shop was big. As you can see on the picture there was a huge line to get in, so I guess you can imagine how it was inside.

It was truly crazy inside; people and clothes every where. The sales assistants (many with Asian origins) was trying without luck to put the clothes back in order and create a presentable shop.
There was 3 floors; Men on the upper floor, Men/Women on the floor 0 and Women in -1. Compared to the size of many Primemark stores, this did not impress me in size. In was big, but not huge...

Concerning the clothes, I was not impressed. Sure they had cheap skinny jeans, cardigans all the colours of the rainbow and cute tuxedos. But it was very normal, nothing very modern as you see in HandM and the prices all though cheap (jeans between 30-50 euros) it was not cheaper or much different than the things you can find in Zara.

Saying this, I still fell for their opening offer: skinny jeans discounted from 30 euros to 10 euros. I took the chance and bought them without trying (couldn't stand standing in two enormous lines) and luckily they were the right size (after consulting with a sales assistant I found out that a size 27 was a size 38) and fitting well.
The line after all only took 10 minutes and the sales assistants at the till were exaggerated friendly.
Not the most pleasant shopping experience, but I just had to see the new kid in town!

My first trend update


Well I think it is about time I try to come with some good shopping adwise - I am planning to contribute to the site with shopping scoops and afordable tips from my trawels and from Denmark where I live. Apart form this I will give some tips on what current trends and where I think you can get the trends for affordable prices.

As I have not been traweling for some time now, this update will be about a trend and what better trend to talk about in these cold times than the trendy ladylike gloves we see everywhere??

I have(off caurse) -been to H&M and they have several wery affordable gloves!
On the 2 first pictyres I have enclosed you can se the ones I have chosen - but they have several!
The last pic. is for inspiration
I can also recomend a trip to Gina Tricot (a fashion store a bit simular to Zara and H&M), Top Shop and accessories. They all have very nice ones and all to affordable prices...

That was all from me this time
Sorry about my spelling mistakes.....

Mid season sales in Maremagnum

The other day I went to Maremagnum. It's a shopping centre by the harbor of Barcelona where you can find the most common shops which you also will find on the big shopping streets. The advantages with this place are 1) a roof over your head if it should be raining (not likely in Barcelona) and 2) and most importantly; they are open every day of the year (except the 25th of December and the 1st of January).
In Maremagnum I went by
H+M, a small shop comparing to the big H+M shops you will find in Portal del Angel (one of the main shopping streets in the centre), but as it’s small it’s also easier to grasp. Luckily they had just started their mid season sales, discounting a lot of clothes to the price of 10 and 5 €. And I manage to find some bargains...
I bought a striped t-shirt (furthest to the left), which was not on sales but had the low price of 5,95€. Then I found a cute summer top, slightly transparent, with a ribbon around the waist (in the middle) and at a cost of 5€, discounted from 19,90€. And then I found a short black/grey striped cardigan (on the right), perfect for office use also for 5€, discounted from 14,95€.
I said it before and I'll say it again; I'll never get tired of shopping in

Mango Outlet

Outlets are a great way to amplify your wardrobe without having to spend a lot of money.
There are many outlets in Barcelona, spread all over the city. Not far from where I live, there is a street only with outlet shops where you get find great bargains.
Yesterday I went by Mango Outlet, without a doubt my favorite store on
that street.
With outlets you have to have a lot of patience and a little bit of luck. In the Mango outlets they sell two kinds of lines; the "taras" meaning clothes from this season but with mistakes and often with a 50% or more discount. Then they sell clothes and
accessories from past seasons (what ever did not get sold in the shops and during the sales) among which you can find clothes with starting at a 30% discount. Sometimes you find many nice things and sometimes nothing at all, depending on if they just brought new stocks or not. It is recommendable to go to the outlets during sales season (in Barcelona they start the 7th of January and the 1st of July), when you will find all the already discounted clothes on sales and you can clothes for ridiculously cheap prices.
I found this really cute white top (see picture above), discounted from 24,90€ to 11,99€ and now 7,99 €.

I just created a blog for the first time of my life and decided to dedicate it to shopping. It is not the kind of hobby I would write in the end of my CV but nevertheless is one of the things I enjoy the most spend my time on when I have a spare moment.
Living in Barcelona makes shopping as a hobby a possibility because of the many economical choices you will find here; The shops from Inditex (Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Lefties, Oysho etc.) and Mango which are 30% cheaper in Spain than in other countries, H&M (which is cheaper here than in Scandinavia), the newly opened Primark and all the outlets (among other La Roca, an entire city outside of Barcelona with only outlet shops of famous brands). I also enjoy shopping when I am travelling - clothes are the best kind of souvenir I can think of.
My purpose with this blog is to share my knowledge and thoughts about cheap shopping around Europe as well as the happy moments when I made a good bargain or found something nice at a reasonable price.
My visitor number one will probably be my best friend, who is as shopping crazy as me and who has been my best shopping friend, finding cheap and fashionble offers around Europe since we were in the beginning of our teens. If thereshould be more people like us out there, they are of course more than welcome to have a peek at this blog.
