One of my favourite things about New Year is getting a new diary, and although I made the mistake of buying an 18-month planner last summer, I’ve still managed to acquire an excessive collection of pretty notebooks. New year, new notebook and all that jazz. I mean, bags are cool, shoes are pretty useful too, but notebooks are what it’s really all about. And I … Continue reading Beautiful notebooks to help you get your s&!t together in 2017
Right, before you call me a complete grinch, let me just say that I love Christmas. Mince pies, mulled wine, presents, food, etc etc, right up my street! But.. it is cold, tiring, and for most of December, I can think of nothing I’d prefer over some chill time at home with one of the better Christmas movies (I’m talking Love Actually, Home Alone, The … Continue reading 7 Beautiful Cashmere Jumpers Under £100
Elaborate fancy dress and jaw-droppingly gruesome makeup? Nope. I like to do Halloween a little more half-assed-ly, because, to be honest, Halloween is always a bit of a non-event.

Thus summer sandals are not my friends, and peep toes? – positively enemies. This should make summer shoes a minefield, if it wasn’t for the gloriously understated espadrilles. Comfortable, toe-hiding, and undeniably summery, espadrilles are the understated … Continue reading The understated espadrille – the heroes of summer

Having said that, it doesn’t mean much, an hour less sleep, foreign-farmed daffodils and the dreaded “Easter weight” is the best we’re probably going to get. But we have to embrace it anyhow, and what better way than with some beautiful spring fashion (aka not black).

Such a … Continue reading BEST OF THE SALES
