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…

Pixi Beauty…My thoughts

Pixi Beauty…My thoughts

Back in February I was invited to an event held  at Fenwick hosted by Pixi Beauty’s Global Director of Make up Amanda Bell. I of course  had heard of Pixi but had never actually tried any of their skincare or make up. Pixi was set up 10 years ago by Petra Strand who has over 20 years experience as a make up artist and product developer. The brand is vegan friendly and is not tested on animals.. Pixi have two extensive ranges. Skintreats and the Make up range. I have been trying some key products from both. I am always really very careful with what I use on my skin. I had eczema as a child that will sometimes flare up and now that I am… View Post
Bringing out the Cowgirl within!…

Bringing out the Cowgirl within!…

After last week’s snow and with a tiny hint of Spring in the air this week I am going full on Spring/Summer wardrobe planning…!! No not really…. unfortunately I am not that organised! I am however thinking dresses and ankle boots. A look I love and always embrace every year. I adore my Chloe Susanna boots that my husband bought me for Christmas but I am also a huge fan of  the Western style. Yesterday I found some flared jeans at the back of my ridiculously untidy wardrobe and wore them with my new Sosander boots. I even braved a teeny tiny bit of leg exposure!  I loved this outfit and it actually prompted me to write this little post.         Black… View Post
AN EVENING WITH TRINNY LONDON

AN EVENING WITH TRINNY LONDON

Hello…. Happy New Year! Let’s hope its a really amazing year for everyone that brings health, happiness, love, fun, success and general well being. On to my first blog post for 2018. I have lots of ideas for this year which will include a complete change to my website. I am really excited but know I have a lot of work to do. Watch this little space….! I thought I would start the year with a little write up on my evening with Trinny London. I am certainly not a beauty blogger and would never pretend to be. I just wanted to give an overview of the products, what I have tried and my thoughts… Last week along with some very stylish ladies I attended… View Post
Young Teen Girls – Gift Ideas….

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… 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
