Last Thursday I packed a suitcase – and by packed I mean Stuffed with a capital S and seven exclamation marks. I then got on the tube and headed across London to the office home to The Independent. I was there to do a Facebook Live interview all about my favourite topic – charity shopping. Ten minutes after arriving at their office and heading up a big ol’ escalator, I was live on the Independent’s Indy Lifestyle Facebook page. As well as answering a few questions about how to get the most out of charity shopping, I also shared a few of my favourite charity shop purchases and outfits. Although I have written this blog for a few years now, this was the first time I have had to speak live about charity shopping and, even though it’s a topic I could chat about until the second-hand cows come home, I felt like I had possibly forgotten to breath for the entire thirteen minutes of the live feed. So, to calm myself down I went, ahem, charity shopping!
