Dress for the occasion!

  **Some affiliate links have been used in this post ** Hello everyone I hope you are all well I was recently invited to preview the new By Invitation Collection at Hobbs London The collection was inspired by the gardens at Kenwood House and is hand painted floral prints and luxurious silks. To be honest I haven’t shopped in Hobbs for years. When I worked in the city I bought suits and sensible court shoes from there but they had most definitely gone from my radar. As you know I like to make purchases that are versatile. Clothes that can be worn on more than one occasion and dressed up and down. How often do we hear that on Instagram!! I am aware that this…

** Some affiliate links have been used in this post ** I presume if you clicked through to read this post you are blessed with a teenage girl around the same age as Alice. Alice at 14 is taller than me with a very slim frame and a definite passion for fashion! She attends a strict Catholic girls school where they measure the girls skirts and are very much ‘old school’ in their thinking. So how would I describe what she likes and how she dresses… I think I am fortunate that she doesn’t particularly wear make up, isn’t into crop tops and I guess I would describe her as a young 14. She doesn’t like dresses that are too figure hugging, she loves a… View Post

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
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
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
