Half Term Holiday Wardrobe

We considered visiting my husband's parents in South Africa this half term (my child has two weeks off from pre-school) as you can get good holiday deals if you book in advance but we ultimately decided a whole 24 hours of travelling door to door might not be much fun with two little ones, so we've flown them over instead and they arrive tomorrow.

The Best Winter Coat Styles for Autumn/Winter

Autumn has definitely set in now – the leaves are turning, the temperatures are dipping and the nights are getting darker. So, it can only mean one thing – time to invest in our biggest fashion purchase of the year, the winter coat.

Hats On!

I was really honoured to guest post over at Transatlantic Blonde's fabulous What I Wore Wednesday slot last week. I adore a great hat and I picked this bad boy Fedora up from Oxfam for £8 (originally M&S and never been worn before) to add to my collection.

Hobbs’ Pretty A/W Shoes & Boots

Hobbs' Pretty A/W Shoes & Boots...I'm totally head over heels shoe mad and really need to curb my addiction, it's just so hard. I really love the confidence a great pair of shoes or boots gives you irrespective of how you might feel about your body that day or even year. A great pair of shoes which fit well always lifts my spirits.

Interview with Dame Kelly Holmes

When Dame Kelly Holmes stepped off the track for the last time in 2005, it marked the end of a rollercoaster career of devastating lows and incredible highs. Yet the race goes on- even if these days the flashbulbs are the ones found on the red carpet, not the running track.

Modelling Chanel Sunglasses

The other day, I received an exciting email from online sunglasses boutique Pret a voir asking if I might like some Chanel sunglasses to model and review. Obviously this took a lot of careful thought and consideration as you can imagine....So about half a millisecond later, I gracefully accepted while dancing round the living room!
