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…

** Some affiliate links have been used in this post ***     Hello, I hope everyone is well. I feel like I am slightly behind with all the things I had planned to do on the blog. 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

••• This post is written in collaboration with Beach Cafe ••• •• Affiliate links have been used ••   It is the Easter holidays already? I actually can’t believe how quickly time is flying by this year. I am sure if you are on here reading this you aren’t currently away in an exotic location or zooming down the ski slopes but possibly trying to plan your days with the kids like me! Even now they are teenagers it is still a challenge.. As you probably know Jamie and I sneaked off for a few days for my birthday recently. Back to our beloved Marrakesh and a few days of relaxing, reconnecting and generally doing not much at all. It is a lovely time of… View Post

A slightly more personal post today but something I guess I really wanted to share. A couple of weeks ago I was approached by the Editor of a Regional newspaper  The Times and So Magazines. I was asked if I would be involved in their relaunch issue where they were to feature various local bloggers and businesses. My first thought was wow, why me? There are other local people going great guns on Instagram and my blog has only really been live for a year. I then thought about some of the negativity I had received a while back from local people and it made it all the more scary. Why would I put myself out there? On Instagram it feels different, a local paper… 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. While we were away at Christmas I actually made a conscious effort not to involve the family in my little Part time role that is the blog and Instagram! We just needed that family time without chasing pictures!  I would really love to mix things up and keep things interesting so you may see some random blogs from time to time on here! … View Post

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

    So I am finally sitting down with a glass of rose to write about our stay in Marrakesh. I remember last year I had intended to write about our trip but the school easter holidays always fall straight afterwards so its not as easy to find the time  to sit and write. I’m not trying to be a ‘Travel Blogger’ I will leave that to the experts but it is a place I love and I thought it might be nice to put a few thoughts on the blog. Jamie and I always try to get away for a few days on our own around my birthday at the end of March. We have managed to do this pretty much every year for… View Post
