Gem has used them along side contributions from @jadecc (from @cellardoormag), and illustrations by @topofmytodo to create a fantastic little book of clever money saving DIY, fashion and beauty tips. She's been featured on the C4 programme Super Scrimpers, and has a lovely and entertaining blog www.gemfatale.co.uk (check it on Tuesdays for more thrifty tips.)
