Saturday night was spent with old friends for a girly dinner at one of my parent's restaurants The Olive Tree, catching up, enjoying great Greek food and the odd glass of Prosecco too.
We are in the midst of buying a new family home so vacations are not top priority right now but a lot of my friends are heading abroad for some super sunny rays in the February half term holidays and have asked me for tips. All this thought of holidays means we can't wait to book our own summer holiday!
Commissioned Post. As a fashion lover, I adore nothing more than time out (preferably in the bath, with a glass of bubbles, in bubbles) flicking through glossies discovering new trends before replicating them with high street buys so my bank...
Anyone who follows this blog knows I love my bling. I treasure my diamond jewellery and family heirlooms along with statement necklaces and fun fashion jewellery too! Benna have some seriously beautiful pieces online to add a little sparkle to your Christmas. Aren't they pretty?
With my Grandma being ill, we've all been cherishing quality family time more than ever recently. My beautiful cousin Georgia (her Dad who is the double of George Clooney-for reals- is my Mum's brother), whom I've always been close with, recently started University nearby so she spent last weekend with us, hanging out, shopping, watching movies (The Bling Ring is so underwhelming, please don't bother) and encouraging me to buy a onesie (really!).
Somewhat ironic in title perhaps as it's never usually hot when you've got your Hunters on, but I'm a huge fan as are the little people in my life: the kids.
Last Sunday we spent the day with Rachael, Richard, Holly & Henry for a roast at the Olive Tree, one of my parents' restaurants followed by park time with the kids and a long walk in the Autumn sunshine to work off the large lunch.
My husband is a little camera shy (in front that is, he's a genuis behind the light box) and only fleetingly appears on the blog. Here we are in a rare couple pic!
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.
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...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.
