I have always loved a backpack for there ease of shopping; you're hands free to browse the rails and cope with arm-fulls of shopping and a coffee at the same time. 

Backpacks were once regarded as the fashion faux pas and it was shameful to double strap but move forward and its now on the cool list.

I'm wearing my Primark backpack out for afternoon lunch with leather trousers, heals to add some glamour

My Top Picks 

I love this River Island backpack with gold zip detail. Team with jeans or floral day dresses and you're good to go.


This cute backpack from Primark is perfect for the warmer months to come. Available in this gorgeous cream or tan. Decisions?????


This Zara Number will see you from office to evening drinks with its metallic finish and simple tie detail.

The Leather Mini

Okay so the thought of wearing a leather mini skirt may have you clinging to your boyfriend fit jeans but team it right and you'll be flashing those pins in no time

A leather mini does not have to be trashy. Try teaming with a loose fitting top or jumper to balance proportions and you will instantly dress down an otherwise over the top look.

Thick tights and ankle boots will also add a casual edge yet keep the stylish look. Tights from Topshop and boots from Next.

How to make money from you unwanted clothes

Have you ever wondered how much money you have sitting in your wardrobe in clothes and accessories that you no longer wear? Well it might be more than you think. 

A few months back I gave a bag of clothes that I no longer wore to my mum to see if she wanted any. A few weeks later she handed me £36 and said she sold them on eBay. 

Last week I listed the remaining items I had and got £45 giving a total of £81!!

Some may think it's too much of a hassle but eBay make it so simple.

Here are my tips on how to be a successful seller...

1) Be realistic. If you wouldn't be happy with the quality that you are sending then don't list it.

2) Be honest. Describe items honestly. If they have been worn then say so. If there are any defects no matter how small or minor state it in the description. If you don't point them out the buyer will and that could result in a complaint.

3) Start the price low to attract more interest and watchers unless the item you are selling is of great value. 

4) Try to list your items so bidding ends in the evening or at a weekend as this is often when more people are online.

5) Be prompt with shipping. You know what it's like when you are waiting for a delivery so don't delay posting when payment has been received. If you can only post on certain days then state this in your description so it's clear to the buyers.

6) Photograph things clearly and in good lighting. Make sure clothes are ironed and clean as no one wants to but something that looks like a dirty dish cloth. 

7) Get proof of postage. This will illuminate someone trying to say that the item was never sent.

8) Send valuable items recorded delivery for piece of mind.

9) Don't wrap in brown paper as this can rip easily if it gets wet. Bin liners and parcel tape are very good and in-expensive.

10) If there is a dispute try to resolve it quickly with the buyer to maintain a good feedback score. 

Happy selling
