About Me

Hi, I'm Nicola and I'm the girl behind Stylish but Skint. I'm 25 years old and I'm a primary school teacher! My three favourite things in life are makeup, cheese and bacon flavour crisps! 

I decided to set up this blog way back in 2008 when completing my undergraduate degree. It started off as a fashion blog and I would like to give my opinions on the creations making their way down the catwalk during fashion week. However, I wasn't feeling the love for my blog back then and would only blog about 5 times a year! Come April 2013 and I've decided to start blogging again, this time with a mix of beauty, fashion and lifestyle posts. 

Having been a student for 4 years I know what it's like trying to look good on a budget, hence the idea behind Stylish but Skint. My vision is to provide reviews and recommendations (plus a few other bits and bobs) about affordable products that won't make your purse cry. 

If you have any questions or if you'd like to know a bit more about me please do not hesitate to ask.

love & hugs
