My Wardrobe Basics from the January Sales

I’m a bit of a sucker for a sale, I begrudge paying full price for anything so this time of year has me quite excited.  As the thought of hitting overcrowded shops with two little boys brings me out in a cold sweat I find myself doing most of my sales shopping online (mostly in bed with a cup of tea in hand). I’ve learnt from past mistakes, so many past mistakes, not to go for high fashion items in the sales.  They are usually out of fashion before I’ve taken the labels off them and even if they’re not…

Autumn Styling & Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone

For years I have wanted a fur gilet.  Every year when Autumn has rolled around I have lusted after one in the shops but always chickened out of actually buying one.  I’m not even sure why, just a feeling that it wasn’t quite me.  Maybe a bit too showy, a bit too “look at me”.  Stupid right? Last week I popped into Next and they had the most beautiful one at the front of the shop and on a bit of an impulse I picked it up to try it on.  I’d originally gone in to get a pair of…

80’s, Autumn & To Quit or Not To Quit? #LittleLoves

Is it just me or are the weeks going way too quickly?  I can’t believe we are almost in October, and I can’t believe I’ve still not had to dig my black tights out yet.  Whilst I’m enjoying the warmer weather I’m ready for Autumn now. Read The one blog post I needed to read this week was this one from Kate at Pouting From Heels, Wanna Ditch Your Blog?  It’s something that has been really playing on my mind recently and I have been giving some serious thought about jacking it all in.  After reading the post I realised…

My Health Mission – Getting Started

When I had O in 2011 I gained an awful lot of weight.  After he was born I had gone from a size 10 to a size 14.  At my nephews christening a month later a couple of people didn’t even recognise me I had put so much weight on.  I had stood there wondering why they weren’t saying hello and then there was a flicker of recognition on their faces as they realised it was me. When I discovered I was pregnant for the second time I was over the moon but determined to be healthier throughout the pregnancy.…

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…
