Happy home additions ..

  Hello.. This week I thought I would talk about a few really simple things that are making me happy during this crazy time. As you probably know we built our house about 6 years ago and had recently decided to look for our next big project. I started saving ideas and pictures into ‘House Files” and was getting really excited to take on the Project Manager role again! I do love a hard hat!! Like so many things this is currently on hold so we have been looking to change a few things around the house. Jamie and I have fairly similar tastes when it comes to Interiors but he really has no interest at all in a cushion or a candle!! This week…

Lockdown life!

  ***This blog post contains some affiliate links*** Hello…. It has been a while. Where shall I begin?… Everything seems so very surreal at the moment and I have to admit I have woken up a few mornings wondering if this all a dream. Like everyone we have our good and bad days here. Jamie has been working from home for about six weeks now and tends to use the whole house as his office! Very much someone that walks around whilst on the phone… It has been so lovely having him here. The kids love his cooking (far far better than me) and he does help around the house most days.. The children as you know are teenagers so things are very different on… View Post
Time for coats!

Time for coats!

  * This blog post contains affiliate links * Hello! Well it has been a while….I have no excuse other than I think lost my mojo over the past few weeks. Instagram can be such an amazing place for small and new businesses, for making friends, raising your profile, earning income and doing what you love. It can also play with your mind…. Self doubt can creep in… Are you good enough? Why are some people getting 1000 likes for not great content? How is it that my account isn’t growing? (I know I am a bit of a loner so that doesn’t help) I personally need to take a step back every so often so reassess and realise that all of the above doesn’t… View Post

Suited and booted

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
My summer edit with Great Plains

My summer edit with Great Plains

I was recently asked to put together my choices from the new SS18 collection at Great Plains What I really love about this 25 year old brand is the combination of both high quality pieces to create a capsule wardrobe and contemporary fashion influenced designs. I guess what I mean is that it is classic with a twist! With an International online presence they are continuing to grow from strength to strength. I have chosen pieces that I felt would work with clothes that I already have as well as adding something slightly different. The colour palette more often is muted but this season with added yellows and bright rust oranges.     Betsy Broderie Midi Dress   My first choice was this bright red/orange broderie… View Post
