Suns out, legs out!

    You may have seen that on Sunday that we went along to the Love Supreme Festival at Glynde Place. Jamie loves Jazz and we try to go along every year if we can. We even went just as he started his chemotherapy three years ago, he is that dedicated! ..Love Supreme is over three days always at this time of the year. The atmosphere is fantastic and there is so much on offer for everyone. We did spend quite a bit of time in the Champagne and Oyster bus! A beautiful converted bus with tables upstairs that gives you an amazing view of the stage! Very handy…We always stay in Lewes at a lovely hotel called Pelham House but thousands of people camp…

My summer edit with Great Plains

My summer edit with Great Plains

I was recently asked to put together my choices from the new SS18 collection at Great Plains What I really love about this 25 year old brand is the combination of both high quality pieces to create a capsule wardrobe and contemporary fashion influenced designs. I guess what I mean is that it is classic with a twist! With an International online presence they are continuing to grow from strength to strength. I have chosen pieces that I felt would work with clothes that I already have as well as adding something slightly different. The colour palette more often is muted but this season with added yellows and bright rust oranges.     Betsy Broderie Midi Dress   My first choice was this bright red/orange broderie… View Post
Something to get me back to the gym…….

Something to get me back to the gym…….

For years I have exercised at least three times a week. It became my routine while I was working in a stressful job to go either to a class or the gym before or after work. Over the years I have purchased and worn many different variations of gym and active wear so when I approached by a brand I had never heard of I was curious. I have to admit that I am that person that has absolutely no problem at all when it comes to wearing my gym wear out in public! I will happily stroll around Sainsburys looking at lettuce or meet a friend for coffee! To me it is now acceptable especially with such amazingly flattering styles out there for us… View Post
You only have to think about one thing!….

You only have to think about one thing!….

Hello! Happy sunny Friday!….My love of jumpsuits grows and grows so I thought I would quickly share a few that I have spotted on the High Street. I have really just looked at more casual jumpsuits. You know my love for trainers and I think we can all appreciate how great it is that there are so many dresses and jumpsuits that can be easily worn with a variety of sneakers! Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love heels and being rather vertically challenged I wear them a lot! It’s just the running about to London and mum duties when I need those comfy sneaks! For me the perfect jumpsuit is something that can be dressed up or down.  All you need to think about… View Post
One of our favourite places…

One of our favourite places…

    So I am finally sitting down with a glass of rose to write about our stay in Marrakesh. I remember last year I had intended to write about our trip but the school easter holidays always fall straight afterwards so its not as easy to find the time  to sit and write. I’m not trying to be a ‘Travel Blogger’ I will leave that to the experts but it is a place I love and I thought it might be nice to put a few thoughts on the blog. Jamie and I always try to get away for a few days on our own around my birthday at the end of March. We have managed to do this pretty much every year for… View Post
My love for red and pink……

My love for red and pink……

As you can probably tell by my Instagram feed recently I am having a ‘red and pink’ moment. Like with many things I am sure I will get bored and move onto some other craze but in the meantime my love continues. It is  an odd one because people say that to wear bold colours together or an outfit of all one colour you need to be very self confident. I am actually far from confident but as soon as I reached the ripe old age of forty decided that I will wear what I love. Of course that doesn’t  mean boob tubes and mini skirts, god no how scary would that be?! ..You know what I mean though! Adding just one accessory can completely… View Post
HANSINE…..dreaming of sunny days

HANSINE…..dreaming of sunny days

    Back in December I was invited to afternoon tea and a preview of the new collection by Hansine at the Dover Street Townhouse in Soho. Dresses and cake what more could I possibly want?!!… I guess it did actually feel quite odd looking at resort wear when it was freezing outside but as you know I am a summer girl at heart and resortwear is my absolute favourite thing. I’m not sure why but I always seem to have so many more summer clothes and love to invest in key pieces that I bring out every holiday. As half term is coming up (far too quickly for my liking) I thought it was a good time to let you know about this fabulous… View Post
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
