Welcome to Skint in the City, my take on trying to live a stylish life on a titchy budget. Having lived in cities around the world and been skint in all of them, this blog now chronicles my adventures and what I’ve learned along the way, such as how to buy Pucci on a Primark budget. I’ve decorated apartments on a teensy budget in some of Europe’s property hotspots, creating stylish spaces for next to nothing. Now, as the recession bites, I’m finding even bigger challenges in making a small wage go a long way – and blogging my thoughts, best tips and mistakes as I try to live the stylish life on a budget tighter than a pair of skinny jeans.
A long-time lover of vintage, I collect and sell vintage clothes, with one habit funding the other in true Skint in the City style.
