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 […]
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 – […]
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 […]
My capsule wardrobe basics quest has picked up again this week with another old faithful, the best Tan Handbag. I have been obsessing so much about interiors and decorating since we moved here that my wardrobe has gone to seed! My daily uniform of paint splashed leggings and oversized T-shirt has become very uninspiring indeed. […]
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 […]
Ever since I started working from home, I have become a self confessed lazy dresser. Today in my oversized sweat shirt and shorts, I am hoping to inspire anyone else in this kind of slump to get smart with some lovely ladies workwear looks I have found over at Hobbs. Even if my office is just […]
Hey it’s me again! Still haven’t found the shelf. With all my colour explosion painting and decorating plans on hold and the sky looking too precarious to venture to the local farm shop, I stayed indoors and had a riot putting together a Spring/Summer lingerie round up especially for you. Surely everyone loves pretty underwear […]
Hey! I know it’s late but I’m excited to share with you today some pictures and a lovely film, sent to me by Nicola for the “I ♥ LADYBIRDS” AW13 Collection from Beautiful Soul London. Featuring delicate bouquets of blue hydrangeas printed on a pale lilac, peach or a bold black background, with teeny ladybirds […]
Not keen on the sketchy wigs and maroon lips, but I adore everything else in the Louis Vuitton rtw fw 2013 collection. I can safely say I love every outfit. The silk slips, devore gowns, lace hems, marabou feather bags, tweed and sparkle, 30′s and 40′s dishevelled glamour and erm, amazing thighs. The whole thing […]
Spring appears to be so out of reach with all this cold weather, so I find myself fast forwarding past Spring and Summer and peeking at the Fall collections over at Vogue for wardrobe inspiration. Gold, Ochre, Blush, mouse brown and the palest mint green. Studded here, there and sometimes everywhere with Swarovski crystals and […]

How did you spend your weekend, Fun in the snow or indoor pursuits? While the Husband was out running in the snow, I spent my early Saturday morning staying cosy in bed, looking through the catwalk show coverage over at Style.com. With a blur of dresses and layers swirling around my mind, I thought I’d […]
Tulle, chiffon, sequins and sparkle. This is how I would dress everyday if possible and if I was 2 feet tall, for these clothes are made by Andrea Rembeck of Tutu Du Monde, for girls much smaller than me. Plus I think I might get a few strange looks in the bank dressed like a […]
With simple colours, natural textures and soft layers.So excited for Spring, the sun is shining and we have been awake since 5am, but when the sun is spreading it’s smile across the sky, I am only grateful to get to see more of it. Love these new pieces from the Toast Early S/S collection. Soft […]
I have had a sparkly pink day, despite being out in a blustery, grey and wet town. So when I saw this sequinned, beaded gauze and silk flapper dress from Jigsaw, I knew whoever owned it must need a palace of a dressing room to go with it. This Ottelia Orchid wallpaper from Designers Guild […]
Flippin cold today, grizzly sky, chilly feet, so after being woken too early by a jet lagged husband, I have been online shoe browsing, I always forget that now I no longer work in the bank I can wear any colour shoes I want, and Anthropologie has some Autumn bright beauties.

Being on vacation, on the road with no wifi and sleeping when the UK was awake, I pretty much missed all the excitement of London fashion week.
In amongst the stack of bills, letters and catalogues that awaited my return was the Plumo spring collection. Glorious pages awash with soft leathers, beaded jewellery, breezy blouses and folk style home wares. My natural instinct to tear paper took over and I ended up falling for these eleven beautiful things. Sibel Earrings Crista Jacket silver […]
Evening, I am wondering, how is the weather at home in Blighty? Outside the sun is bright here and there is a fresh breeze rusting through the palm trees. Inside I am very excited as I just received the new collection email alert from Toast. To celebrate I thought I would go on a virtual […]
I am sorry for the long silence, I have been helping friends, road tripping, making decorations, shopping, lunching and sometimes slacking, with a bit of unspeakable rum drinking and fast food consumed in between. The husband is away so nutrition seems to have slipped down the list, much to my horror as now I feel […]
