Colour Clashing

I love a bit of colour clashing and a print clash come to that (but more of that another time)-quirky, a little bit eccentric but style with edge.

Colour Blocking, Baby

Yesterday I went all bright and colour blocked, I put together a bright, vibrant ensemble of blue, fuschia and yellow with my cropped jumper (Topshop), dress (Fever London) and bag (Nova Harley).

My Three Dream Watches

Those who follow this blog know what a jewel loving magpie I am, only fuelled by Pinterest (damn you Pinterest eating away my hard earned cash) but what a hub of sparkly inspiration (I even had my engagement ring upgraded and re-set thanks to the art deco rings I spied there)...but I digress, watches too have a special place in my sometimes materialistic heart!

Papa G’s Birthday Party

We hosted Papa G's birthday at our house yesterday for an early dinner that saw me hitting the sack before my guests left (what a lightweight)!

Am I ‘Normal’?

Ok so we all know 'normal' doesn't really exist but surely everyone can relate to that very real pressure to fit in, you know, feeling like you're doing the right thing, ticking the boxes of thriving at life, parenting, your job....this oh so common weighing yourself up against the 'norms' and trying not to feel the odd one out...

The fabulous folks at Yellow Mellon sent my sons some beautiful summery pieces for review so we hit the park with the very talented Kirsty Mattsson of Kirsty Mattsson Photography for a shoot in the sunshine!

(Some Of) Our House

Moving house and designing our new home has meant many a trip to Habitat, Homebase, Laura Ashley, Cath Kidston and of course lots of antique furniture stores and raids of my mother's family heirlooms (thanks Mum).

Style: Monochrome Love

I love a bit of monochrome and this summer Aztec style print dress in black and white from Dorothy Perkins simply makes me smile. It's comfortable enough to run around little people in but doesn't compromise on style!

Brazilian Style with Lucidez from Luxe-Layers

With the World Cup, we are all currently and right so- Brazil-crazy but let me tell you I've always been a fan of Brazilian fashion (food and film) and scored a goal of my own (sorry) when stunning Luxe-Layers, a beautiful boutique and online shop from my old neighbourhood Barnes in London contacted me to gift me this captivating dress by Rio based designer Lucidez. I'm in love....
