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
THE MULTITASKING TOTE….

THE MULTITASKING TOTE….

So this is scary…my very first blog post! Just a quick one to get me started…! Now obviously my website is very much work in progress…. I have lots of ideas for my blog but wanted to start by talking about a fabulous new brand that I have recently had the pleasure of meeting. Hermosa London are an amazing new company run by two sisters. Clair is actually local to me and we have mutual friends which meant we chatted for hours! No surprise there really!! Clair and Shelley are busy working mums with 6 children between them and they were looking to provide new and multipurpose accessories for our busy lives.  The first product they have launched is the Hermosa All Rounder. I love… View Post
