It is nearly August and I am so glad about that because it means September isn’t too far away. I’ve never been a Summer girl. Yes, light evenings, BBQ’s and pretty dresses appeal to me, but not wandering around like a big sweaty mess and having a million showers every day. Guess that is one perk of working from home though… Unlimited showers! I also hate clothes shopping in the Summer because the last thing you want to do in this heat is lock yourself in a changing room!
Throughout August I’m going to try not to spend any money. Previous attempts at this have failed drastically. I told myself I would be good in July and I ended up breaking my self inflicted ban in Select Fashion and Primark. It could have been worse, at least they are both really reasonable shops! Of course as soon as you tell yourself not to spend your hard earned cash, you are immediately attracted to everything in store. Shiny new handbags, that perfect pair of wedges and things you wouldn’t even normally buy. I call this withdrawal symptoms. Hi, my name is Felicity and I am a shopaholic!
To curb my cravings or indeed to make them a million times worse I’ve decided to post a regular feature on my blog.

Recently, I was told of a brand new website that has just launched in the UK called Fashiola
. Built to make shopping quicker and easier, Fashiola is a fashion search engine that brings results from many brands across the Internet together in one easy place. With brands such as Marks and Spencer, H&M and Michael Kors and many more being added each month I was keen to have a good look at this website to see if it lived up to its expectations.
Firstly, Fashiola is really easy to use. With three main options, Women, Men and Kids, you simply click on what you want to see and the site contains numerous categories to make your browsing even more efficient. Once you have clicked (or indeed searched) for what you are looking for, you are given a multitude of options of different products that match your description. I did notice that there were a lot of brands that are completely out of my price range, such as Hugo Boss but a girl can dream right!? For those of us who are living life on a tighter budget, you can refine your search down by brand, price and even size which is particularly useful if you are like me and click on everything that isn’t the right size!
