A blissful stay at Bruern Cottages.
Feeling more confident in an LBD and thanks to a little style trick.
A love letter to TS.
Saturday night was a complete whirlwind as twenty of my friends gathered at my brother's beautiful Italian restaurant Giorgio's in Rodley for fab Italian food, bubbles and a delicious two-tiered chocolate birthday cake. If you're going to do it, you might as well do it right, hey?!
Dressing for the temperamental UK summer is no easy task. It can go from glorious sun to horrendous downpours in the blink of an eye and while my international readers may not believe me - our crazy British weather has even delivered all 4 seasons in just one day. From heatwave to snow storms within just 24 hours!
If diamonds are a girl's best friend, then Swarovski Crystal are definitely the fun, glam pal everyone wants to party with!
A gal can never have too much jewellery - FACT! From statement to minimalist, jewels and lots of them, are the perfect way to complete your outfit.
I've written many times about my IMMENSE love for all things H&M from day/night dresses to kidswear, home and accessories, it's one of my all-time favourite high street stores and the maker of my most beloved LBD in the world, ever!
Got a hot date and not sure what to wear? My husband and I have booked a date night and are going OUT OUT with dinner and champagne so I'm going to get shopping.
Statement jewellery is the perfect way to give your outfit that 'Wow Factor'. One of my own signature styles is to team a chic little black dress with a bold necklace, creating a dramatic, eye-catching look that is guaranteed to turn heads. Statement jewellery doesn't have to cost the earth either and unlike fine jewellery you can regularly find stand out statement necklaces for £50 or less.
Style wise, I love nothing more than dressing up a little black dress with statement accessories.
I've always been an accessories gal! Hats, shoes, bags...you name it, I covet it. In particular, I love jewellery and have always found it to be the perfect way to finish an outfit, the icing on the cake: the piece de resistance, so to speak...
Food + fashion.
Date night started out being an ambitious bi-monthly well-date for Peter and I, but life has gotten busy so it's now more of a monthly treat, allowing us both get a bit dressed up and enjoy dinner and bubbles without little ones, for much-needed couple time.
I recently read an article that said 1 in 3 women LOVE cleaning! Whaat! Like Monica from Friends, apparently one third of the female population are hardwired to love cleaning, washing, scrubbing, drying and polishing! *shocked face, need a lie
I'd like to share a bit of advice to all my readers who haven't yet had kids. Never - and I repeat NEVER - take date nights for granted. Because as soon as bambinos are on the scene - and my fellow mamas will back me up here - date nights become rarer than rocking horse poop!
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.
