House of Frasers Menswear Review

It’s a running joke between my husband and I about the state of his wardrobe.  He’s a man who thinks he’s being colourful if he’s wearing white.  The rest of his clothes are mostly blue, black or grey.  I have actually lost count of how many grey jumpers he owns.  Last Christmas I bought him a cardigan to add a splash of brightness, it went down like a lead balloon (and still remains in the bottom of my wardrobe as I missed the deadline to send it back). When I was recently contact by House of Fraser to review an…

My Denim Dress Obsession

I’ve always been a fan of denim (who isn’t?) but recently it seems to have developed into something more.  Every time I go into a shop I’m drawn to the denim section.  I’m steering clear of jeans at the moment, my mum tum is not quite ready for those yet, and skirts can be a bit hit and miss as to how well they fit, but denim dresses, I just can’t get enough!  Maybe it’s because I’m on maternity leave and without having to look formal for work I’m embracing a more casual style. Despite already having three denim dresses…

My Top 5 Favourite Shops For Toddler Boys Fashion

My little boy is a November baby, which means that his Autumn/Winter wardrobe is usually taken care of courtesy of his birthday and Christmas presents.  He really does get spoilt and his wardrobe is usually bursting at the seams, and a lot of items get carried over to the next year as children’s sizing can be a bit hit and miss. The only downside is that they are not necessarily the clothes I would personally choose to dress my son in.  They are lovely and he looks great in them but they’re not always to my personal taste.  I can…

Trespass Chorley Waterproof Jacket Review

As O has got older I find myself spending more and more time outside.  My little boy just loves being in the open air, regardless of the weather.  When I was contacted by Trespass with the opportunity to review an item from their website I was excited and a little bit nervous at the same time. Being a mum to an active three year old means that you need clothes that are practical, but as my blog name suggests I really don’t want to turn into a middle-aged frump and sometimes I have moments when I look in the mirror…
