Summer Gold with Annie Haak Designs

    *** This is sponsored post written in collaboration Annie Haak Designs ****   Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous weather! We have been on ‘slow mo’ here today which actually has been rather lovely! I do find myself clearing up constantly though, I think that is the joy of beloved teenagers who do NOT seem to stop eating!! Lets talk jewellery… ! As you hopefully know by now I only ever collaborate with brands that I really feel are a good fit for me and you too. When Annie Haak Designs approached me I instantly knew that their products were both affordable and very much my style! Annie Haak is the founder and Managing Director and her designs are worn by…

Alice is back at school now and although I am still feeling a little wobbly with regard to Instagram I wanted to get my ideas down on paper .. well the internet! If you follow my stories you would have seen that I have been trying have a bit of a clear out of my dressing room and wardrobes that I seem to have taken over around the house. It is not easy for me mainly because I always think that I will love something again or… View Post

Alice at 14 is taller than me with a very slim frame and a definite passion for fashion!

She doesn’t like dresses that are too figure hugging, she loves a… View Post

Hello! Happy New Year! My first blog post of the year… I have lots of ideas and am currently working on a Travel post after our recent trip to Thailand. I had such a lovely response after I did a write up on Marrakesh I will now make it a regular thing. I think the hardest thing for me are the photograph’s.

Hello, how are we all? The sun is still shining here and I feel like I am on a bit of a blogging roll! Lots of exciting ideas coming up to share with you……Can I mention Autumn Fashion?? I normally ease into the new  season rather slowly. I think really because I am careful with what I buy nowadays and don’t want to peak too soon with the latest thing! A few days after returning from our holiday and still very much in Summer mode Alice and I had a mooch around London at the new AW18 offerings… One thing I have always loved wearing is a suit. Maybe from my days as a Headhunter in the City where especially during the 90’s suits were… View Post
