M&S’s amazing shoe game

I’ve been loving a bit of M&S recently – and not just for the Dine in for £10 deal (though, I confess, I am having that tonight! Steak pie and chips: winning!). No, it’s been producing some rather nice clothes, too. I love the Limited Edition range and M&S cashmere is pretty unbeatable. A second…

Forget hygge – focus on risalamande

About 18 months ago, I read Helen Russell’s excellent book The Year of Living Danishly, in which she moved to Denmark and set about discovering why it’s supposed to be such a wonderful country to live in. A key part of Danish contentedness, she said, is ‘hygge’, the concept of getting cosy in winter and…

PJs – all day

Appropriately for a Sunday, I think, this post is all about the joys of pyjama dressing. Because never has it been cooler to wear your pyjamas. This is not a flashback to university, and it is definitely not an invitation to leave the house in the manky jogging bottoms and vest top you actually sleep…

Fun hosiery

One of the best things about autumn and winter? The return of tights! Yes, bare legs in summer are easy breezy, and for those who tan, it’s the perfect opportunity to show them off. But for the fairer skinned girls, such as myself, the return of tights season brings with it a sigh of relief…

Ebay interiors bargains

I must apologise in advance for the laziness of this post but, in my defence, I spent the first four hours of today driving from North Yorkshire to my house in Hertfordshire after a lovely week at home with my parents. So my blogging brain is not on sparkling form. But anyway, I thought this…

Have you discovered Brand Outlet?

For any designer bargain hunters such as myself, the discovery of a new website with knockdown prices is a wonderful thing. Which is why, when a colleague introduced me to Brand Outlet recently, I was over the moon. It has some of my favourite brands at up to 80% off – what a treat. Here’s…

Pink cocktails

Happy Friday everyone! And it’s the start of a week’s holiday for me, so it’s the happiest Friday of all, woohoo! I’m spending a lot of time at the moment thinking of little details for the wedding, and one idea I’ve had is that it’d be really fun to serve a pink drink (because pink…

My favourite autumn/winter collections

Now that autumn is well and truly upon us (yes, sadly it is dark outside already), we can finally stash the sandals away under the bed, rescue the boots from their summer holiday and fully embrace autumn/winter collections. Which means that those amazing catwalk outfits that made their debut all those months ago are finally…

Pastel coloured wedding dresses

I was at Brides: The Show last night, getting some more inspiration for my wedding (it’s October now, which means seven months to go!). I think these shows are generally for brides at an earlier stage of their planning, because lots of the stands are from companies who sell flowers, cakes, stationery, dresses and accessories,…
