BODEN SPRING AND SUMMER PATTERN FRENZY

BODEN SPRING AND SUMMER PATTERN FRENZY

The gardens in my neighbourhood are all slowly coming alive – Crocuses Tulips, Daffodils and Irises are all about to bloom, so I am going to try and add some of that colour magic via Boden into my wardrobe this year. I know I have harping on about neutrals and grey forever, but I have […]


VINTAGE FEET – CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS

VINTAGE FEET – CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS

For a long time now I have been wearing the same shoes, I had a purge when we built our walk in wardrobe and am left with my battered old boots – worn everyday – a pair of Toms, I am yet to wear in – who knew canvas could be so blister inducing – […]


DRAMA QUEENS, CONFESSIONS AND CLOTHES

DRAMA QUEENS, CONFESSIONS AND CLOTHES

My confession to a recent obsession. It started last year – having never seen Gossip Girl it on scheduled TV (we don’t have a television anymore), it was a chilly day, I had the flu and was tucked up on the sofa with the cats and my laptop, desperately looking for something to take my mind […]


TONED & TANNED – CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS

TONED & TANNED – CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS

My capsule wardrobe basics quest has picked up again this week with another old faithful, the best Tan Handbag.

My daily uniform of paint splashed leggings and oversized T-shirt has become very uninspiring indeed. […]


GREYSCALE – MY CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS

GREYSCALE - MY CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS

A fruitless shopping trip turned into a wardrobe epiphany this week when I was out and about in Central London with my friend Judith, although she may have been at the end of her tether and exhausted by my quest to find a winter coat, I had a break through. I left without a coat […]

STAYING DRY AND TOASTY THIS AUTUMN WITH JOULES

So, here I sit writing this post with chilled hands and nose, half under a blanket with a cat under too, curled by my knees purring, Autumn has finally blown in, stripping the apples of our tree and turning our home into an igloo. I have been meaning to buy a weather proof coat ever […]

SPRING AND SUMMER PRETTIEST LINGERIE ROUND UP

Hey it’s me again! Still haven’t found the shelf.
