Feeling the Summer Holidays Pinch

I am feeling the pinch this holiday, we have been cramming everything in to give the boys a summer holiday to remember and it all comes at a cost.  This week alone its been llama trekking, a demolition derby and quad biking.  We are doing free bits in between, visits to parks, mountain walks and board games at home but still I want some wow moments for them to go back to school with!

Thankfully we are on the cusp of payday but overdrawn nonetheless and the boys still need their wardrobes updating with summer wear.  I will be making use of every offer code from Fashion Beans in August to try and get out of the red but still keep the boys looking smart and fashionable.  I am not about designer labels just tidy practical clothes for them; they grow so fast I cannot justify spending a fortune (not that I have one to spend anyway sadly!). 

Marks & Spencer have a 20% off orders event using a code on the Fashion Beans site.  Shame I did not realise sooner as we have already ordered the boys school uniform from Tesco which was a considerable purchase but with the discount it might have been better to order through M&S and make a potential saving.  Although there are other things we need so the offer will not go to waste.

It’s all about the minions so I would get my youngest a pair of wellies (£15), his old pair had to be thrown out they were stinking after a water fight that filled them completely and never really dried out!!!  If he had minions ones he might (just maybe!) take better care of them, I can live in hope.

I love these trainers and not to expensive either (only £14 even before the discount is applied).  I need to start spending less on the boys footwear because all they do is scuff shoes really quickly!  A new pair can look well worn in just a matter of days.

The pair of them could do with Trilby hats (£12), they tried one I was sent for me and it suited them perfectly.  I think boys look so handsome in these types of hats, much more dapper than your average baseball cap.

I really like this shirt (£14), its very summery!  If they wear it sunshine might follow, the eternal optimist me.  But how can it not with a top this bold, we would be off in search of sandy beaches...
