  **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.

Very handy…We always stay in Lewes at a lovely hotel called Pelham House but thousands of people camp… View Post
