Fighting the urge to shop!

I read a really good quote somewhere that said if you want to buy something you should spend the day rearranging a room. Actually I think I saw it on Instagram (credit to the savvy Sagittarius). So that’s just what I did as my YouTube has been inundated with”Fall decorate with me” videos and “Halloween… Continue reading Fighting the urge to shop!

Frugal, thrifted and free Halloween 2018

This year I am planning a Halloween gathering ahead of time as nothing memorable happened last year. I think we just watched some movies. However this year is different!

I was inspired to keep working on my 2018 goals by watching a video by Rachelleea on YouTube.

I really liked this idea as there are a few things… Continue reading Working on 2018 goals.

Hosting a MacMillan coffee morning.

This weekend I held the Macmillan coffee morning at my home in Hong Kong. I don’t think people in Hong Kong know much about it. Basically the Macmillan coffee morning is used to raise money and awareness for Macmillan cancer research. I signed up for the party kit and it arrived a few days before… Continue reading Hosting a MacMillan coffee morning.

Asia Expat is like Gumtree or Free cycle in the UK. We have a lot of stuff collected for “what… Continue reading Giving stuff away in Hong Kong.

Planning for MacMillan coffee morning.

This year, after saying that I will for a few years I’m finally going to be doing the MacMillan coffee morning. It’s going to be on memory of someone special. I’m semi planning and mainly tidying up! As for making cakes, I’m not so sure where to begin? Anyone have any easy cake recipes. I… Continue reading Planning for MacMillan coffee morning.
