First of all, I’d like to say thanks to Barnardo’s for asking me to take part in their Homeware campaign. Homeware and renovations have taken over my life since we got the keys to our home in October and I’m not going to lie, I love it!

For some people, it can seem strange wearing clothing which is old or previously worn –  I didn’t like pre-loved clothes when I was younger but how times change! I’m now 21 and about 90% of my wardrobe is vintage.
