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 the...
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.
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.
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.
Zarouhi/Zaz calls herself French-Creole, having grown up in Trinidad & Tobago, but with a French passport! London is now her home, where she married a husband who works in film, and she is a working mother of two monkeys/angels so she feels she straddle many cultures.
A stripe-lover, this Sunday I wore my latest buy from Phase Eight, a 'Stripe Cindy Tunic' in Mushroom/Ivory for a laid back lunch and post cinema trip. Loving discovering cool backgrounds for these shoots too.
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!
A lady can never have too many dresses and now with so many discounts and reductions online, it's too hard to resist the summer sales! Here are my pick of Isme's pretty summer dresses from occasion wear to holiday frocks...and you can use the Isme discount code to get money off these purchases too. Happy shopping!
This time last year I was hosting the BritMums Get Fit Facebook group and busting a gut every day doing army-style workouts to get in shape. Fast forward twelve months and...well...yeah, not so much.
Maria is a Chilean raised in the US with a six year stint in the UK (she was a mum before becoming a mom!) She lives in the Washington D.C. area with her husband and two children; a four year old son and three month old daughter.
Last Saturday I was lucky enough to have a complimentary hair cut and blow dry at Super Cuts in the Crossgates Shopping Centre, Leeds. Their premise is simple, you show up without an appointment and have your hair done.
Like most women, I adore beautifully made hand bags and shoes. They can transform an outfit and instantly reflect who you are or how you feel that day. What's more, bag and shoe shopping do not rely on a certain body size or shape and suit everyone. Last week I decided to treat myself to an investment Mulberry bag.
I love it when friends comment on how stylish they think my little boys are because let's face it, boy's fashion gets a lot of stick.
Style Spotlight shines a light on my style picks. I adore the British brand Mulberry and couldn't resist adding to my collection with this brilliant, bright orange continental wallet. Luckily, I picked it up in the sale for £180 from £225. What's more, in that colour, I can never lose it in my bag. Perfect.
I simply adore Avenue 32 so when I was asked to select my favourite luxury designer bags from this fabulous online collection, I jumped at the chance (trying not to trip up on my Louboutins).
