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. 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 QUIET AND TRANQUIL BEDROOM PART 1

A QUIET AND TRANQUIL BEDROOM PART 1

A long time in the making and oh so close to being finished – the bedroom – although in our home nothing is ever really ‘done’ as I am constantly moving things around, adding and taking away. The challenge over the last couple of months has been our hunt for perfect bedside tables.It took us an […]


SUNDAY PONDERING – DRESSING ROOMS

SUNDAY PONDERING - DRESSING ROOMS

We have plenty of rooms here, it’s just that they are all of a modest size, so wardrobes would look quite cumbersome in any of the bedrooms. For our bedroom we would like a less cluttered look, more tranquil with only the essentials close by, favourite perfume, the book we are reading, a couple of […]


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 […]


TIDYING UP MY LOOK WITH HOBBS WORKWEAR

TIDYING UP MY LOOK WITH HOBBS WORKWEAR

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 […]


STAYING DRY AND TOASTY THIS AUTUMN WITH JOULES

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

SPRING AND SUMMER PRETTIEST LINGERIE ROUND UP

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 […]

LOUIS VUITTON RTW FW 2013

LOUIS VUITTON RTW FW 2013

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 […]


ALL MY COLOURS

ALL MY COLOURS

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 […]


FASHION ABC’S

FASHION ABC'S

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 […]


SPARKLE SPARKLE LITTLE PEOPLE

SPARKLE SPARKLE LITTLE PEOPLE

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 […]

SIX THINGS BODEN SS 2012

Okay put down the Fairy bread! I am so happy that the Spring Summer collections are finally launching, not really being one that can be bothered to battle the sale rails and personally looking to totally forget last seasons drab high street offerings, I am more than glad to embrace spring early, get cold wrists […]

TURQUOISE AND GOLD

TURQUOISE AND GOLD

Happy midweek to you, remember my quest for earrings? Well, I searched every corner of my Californian travels and still left empty handed, I really thought I would find THE pair, but nevermind as on my return I was flicking through my saved favourites on Etsy and was lucky enough to find these two pairs […]


BREAK THE BANK

BREAK THE BANK

I have always had a partly hidden Boho side. I have tried to fight it but a love of feathers and long floaty skirts has resurfaced, my friends even tease me about getting a dreamcatcher tattoo. For comedy value I may well go ahead and do it! Being in California and waking to the sound […]


NAVAJO NIGHT AND DAY

NAVAJO NIGHT AND DAY

Sitting here at home hiding from the rain and thunderous grey sky. Sidetracked by a sale notification email, I strayed in to the new TopShop collection. Inspired by one of my friends who recently bought a patterned poncho which she successfully drapes over trousers and sweaters for winter walking and sequin dresses with heels for […]
