Young Teen Girls – Gift Ideas….

I have been asked a few times now to do a blog post with some ideas for girls. I have to say that I am really struggling this year with what to buy Alice. Maybe it is slightly easier with older teen girls, I’m not sure…I think it doesn’t help that I am not remotely organised and keep telling myself that I have bags of time! At just 13 Alice has recently become extremely specific about what she likes and doesn’t like. She attends a girls school which is really quite old fashioned (they measure the older girls skirts to check the length!) so she really isn’t into make up, nails, dresses or anything too girly! She loves clothes, bags and shoes (no idea where…

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS SPARKLE ….

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS SPARKLE ….

It is that time of year when we dig out the trusty little black dress, add some sequins to our wardrobe and maybe become slightly more adventurous with our outfits.  Party season is upon us and if you are anything like me you will be having trouble deciding what to wear for each occasion. Not everybody loves full on sequins and there is so much choice both on the High St and online it can becoming slightly overwhelming. I have put together an edit of a few of my favourites pieces. I have to say it was very difficult making the selection as I love so much from the High street as well as top end investment pieces! Stay away from the handbags Jane!  … View Post
My TOP SHOP EDIT…

My TOP SHOP EDIT…

I literally have been inundated with Black Friday deals and emails. I love shopping but I’m not sure why this always makes me feel slightly stressed and panicky. Maybe its the ‘FOMO” fear of missing out thing or just when you are not organised with a list of presents to buy, looking for something very specific or have hours to sit at your computer!…It can drive you nuts! So I decided to keep things simple and do a quick edit of my current favourite pieces at Topshop     This is one of my favourites. I would wear with a tuxedo suit or black trousers, heels and a biker jacket. Absolutely love….     Classic, a jumpsuit is always a winner and very easy to… View Post
Finery London favourites …

Finery London favourites …

I thought I would write a very quick edit of my current favourites from Finery London as they are currently offering 20% with the Promo code FINERY20. It is that time of year when we all receive endless offers via email and sometimes it becomes overwhelming and I for one start to panic about dreaded Christmas shopping! I have chosen items I love that I feel would work with my current wardrobe but Finery London do offer possible gift options so it may be worth considering with todays offer…I also look for investment pieces like the gorgeous buttery leather burgundy biker jacket and my the dream olive leather trench!     I love this autumn maxi dress, we all need a winter maxi in our wardrobe! I… View Post
Mustard – love or hate?

Mustard – love or hate?

The mustard yellow trend. Less flashy than classic yellow, mustard yellow definitely adds a splash of colour, but is closer to a neutral, making it more versatile and chic. Bold, confident, and happy, mustard yellow is definitely one of the colours of the season. Don’t be surprised if you see it propping up everywhere heading into the winter, too! If you’re into this trend, you’re going to love these options. Now I wouldn’t wear head to toe yellow or mustard but adding a coat, handbag or amazing shoes gives you an instant nod to the new season.     I was recently gifted this mustard lace blouse by the lovely Sue at https://www.coconutsundaycouk.com/ I have styled it with navy waxed jeans and navy boots along with burgundy and velvet. I plan… View Post
My Whistles edit – 20% until Monday!

My Whistles edit – 20% until Monday!

Yesterday I was accidentally diverted into my local Whistles after receiving their 20% email. The offer is valid until midnight on Monday but I know popular items will sell out quickly. I thought I would do a quick edit of my favourites as I have shopped at Whistles for a very long time mainly buying classic pieces or investing in outerwear View Post
BEAUTY FROM WITHIN…..

BEAUTY FROM WITHIN…..

Firstly I would like you guys to know that I often get offers of products to try but I only take on products that I like, love or would use in my every day life. …Every week (usually on a Monday) I start my health regime again. Promising myself and my family that I will eat clean, not touch another bar of chocolate or drink the odd glass of rose in the evening. When I was asked to try this beauty drink it really appealed to me… I have made my own juices and smoothies in the past along with years of exercising.  Grabbing something ready to go from the fridge seemed like a fab idea!   I am writing after trying two different drinks… View Post
SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT…..

SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT…..

Our plans for a day out have changed due the totally rubbish weather. I can’t believe that I am sitting here in cashmere (holy) socks and a rather large woolly cardigan rocking ‘granny chic’… I thought I would write a quick post on a new and exciting T Shirt brand that has been launched by two of my lovely friends. As I’ve said previously I really want to feature as many new independent companies on the blog as I can but obviously only products that I love or would actually purchase myself. Slogan/graphic Tees are still so very popular and can really jazz up our ‘rushing about after the kids’ mum outfits. I wear mine with jeans, tailored or wide leg trousers but also love… View Post
