Three days to go…

I apologise in advance if reading posts about my upcoming wedding has been getting boring. But, the silver lining is, it’s almost nearly finally here – three days to go! So I can stop going on about it. Apart from sharing photos, stories, etc etc in the weeks and months after! I’ll be taking a…

Glorious & Other Stories dresses

I’m lucky to work right in the centre of London, so the best flagship high-street stores on Oxford Street and Regent Street are right on my doorstep. Perfect for lunchtime purchases! Though my bank balance doesn’t feel quite so lucky… One shop that’s particularly popular with everyone in my office is & Other Stories. We…

Like rain on your wedding day…

I’m getting married in 10 days, eek! It’s obviously really exciting, and everything is pretty much organised now (I’ve been planning for 16 months!), but there’s one thing I have no control over… The weather! So far, the weather this spring has been more that a little bit disappointing. I haven’t even worn my sandals…

Doing a Dorothy in red sandals

We probably all own the sandal classics: black, white, tan or metallic; gladiator, slides and this year’s pompom-embellished. But my head has recently been turned by bright red. Probably thanks to these Prelinus sandals by Manolo… They’re so chic, and yet such a statement. I love them. But I obviously don’t want to shell out…

One in every colour, please

Does anyone else buy multiples of the things they love in every colour? You know when you find the perfect dress, t-shirt or pair of shoes, so you rush back to the shop to buy every shade, knowing you’ll wear them to death? I definitely do this? Sod variety, I want old faithfuls I know…

Converse virgin

I confess, I’ve never owned a pair of Converse. I don’t think I’ve even tried one on. I know, what sort of shoe addict am I if I’ve never had any Converse? What have I been doing? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always thought they looked great on other people, just never saw the gap…

Supersize my necklace

I used to absolutely love a statement necklace, and had quite a collection of them. Then the fashion changed, and delicate little gold necklaces, often worn in groups, became my thing. I still love them, but I think it’s about time I welcomed some chunky neck candy back into my wardrobe again. I mean, how…

Hello rhubarb season!

I think rhubarb is one of the Marmites of the fruit and vegetable world. Some of us love the tart but sweet taste, others find it sour and hate the stringy texture. Me? I’m firmly in the first camp. I love the stuff. So now we’re well into rhubarb season, I’m going to be making…

Yes to yellow!

What’s your favourite colour? It’s a tricky question. I’m definitely partial to pink, I love green, and if you opened my wardrobe you’d see about 90 per cent blue and navy. But right now, I’m all about yellow. I think it’s because the sun made a brief appearance last weekend, and the days are noticeably…

Silk scarves for summer

I was in M&S the other day checking out the shoe selection (again), when I stumbled across a really cute selection of scarves practically hidden in a corner. They’re little silky square scarves in a variety of patterns, and just £9.50 each. Take a look… I think they’re really sweet, and a bargain at under…

The rise and rise of tasselled boho tops

These days, I find that most of my fashion inspiration comes from Instagram. I see my favourite bloggers and Instagrammers wearing something I may never have thought of, and suddenly I just need it. Particular culprits are The Fashion Lift and The Frugality, both of whom having me rushing to add to basket, and who…

Amazing shoes at bargain prices at M&S

I’ve written before about the amazing shoe goings on at good old M&S, and I’m pleased to reported that things haven’t changed for the current season. I popped into my local branch this week and found myself scooping up at least five pairs to try on, so tempted was I. M&S shoes have a lot…
