Trashtastika on YouTube

Hey there 🙂 Yes, I’ve been off updating my Trashtastika YouTube channel which had become a bit dusty…why is why the posts haven’t been as frequent here.

New York Shopping – Century 21

  This is the first post in my series on New York Shopping. If you’re an aussie who has never been to the USA before, you won’t believe the shopping and the sales there! The shoe warehouses are a wonder to behold, but that’s not all.  Have you heard of Century 21?   My own […] Read more…
