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

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

** This is a paid collaboration with Emily and Fin **   If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that I have recently been working with a fun and slightly different brand Emily and Fin The brand were set up by two friends Emily and Ffion who initially sold their clothes at Portobello Market. Now designing with their team from their London studio Emily and Fin are an extremely distinctive British brand with Global stockists. When they asked me to choose my favourite pieces from their new Magical Circus Collection I was really excited as it is a new range of fun prints, jewel colours and luxurious textures. Cosy knits, wide leg trousers and fabulous wearable day dresses..       As you know I absolutely love… View Post

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

    You may have seen that on Sunday that we went along to the Love Supreme Festival at Glynde Place. Jamie loves Jazz and we try to go along every year if we can. We even went just as he started his chemotherapy three years ago, he is that dedicated! ..Love Supreme is over three days always at this time of the year. The atmosphere is fantastic and there is so much on offer for everyone. We did spend quite a bit of time in the Champagne and Oyster bus! A beautiful converted bus with tables upstairs that gives you an amazing view of the stage! Very handy…We always stay in Lewes at a lovely hotel called Pelham House but thousands of people camp… 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
My TOP SHOP EDIT…

My TOP SHOP EDIT…

I literally have been inundated with Black Friday deals and emails. I love shopping but I’m not sure why this always makes me feel slightly stressed and panicky. Maybe its the ‘FOMO” fear of missing out thing or just when you are not organised with a list of presents to buy, looking for something very specific or have hours to sit at your computer!…It can drive you nuts! So I decided to keep things simple and do a quick edit of my current favourite pieces at Topshop     This is one of my favourites. I would wear with a tuxedo suit or black trousers, heels and a biker jacket. Absolutely love….     Classic, a jumpsuit is always a winner and very easy to… View Post
