I have a feeling summer is on it's way out and there are only a few more weeks left of cropped looks and slides.... These past few mornings chunky knits have been calling me. I have managed to resist so far, however this has not stopped me looking out for new additions.Β This season the bigger the better,Β which is something I am really happy about, and is also great if you are with bump. You can't beat a cosey oversized woolly. Wear with leather leggings or those favourite skinnies for everyday style.

Currently I am drawn to any shade of grey ... Read More

Apologies for being so useless these past few weeks. No real excuses - Just sunshine, sea and relaxation. Those good intentions of 'working' just were not strong enough. I was overcome by all things Italia instead. Now sadly holidays are over and it's back to reality.

There is a good month of summer holiday's to go at home, and for the next further few weeks I am full time mum with two-in-tow. Boy is it hard keeping a three year old busy. One that has previously been used to going to the beach every day, and staying up until midnight each night socialising. (Thankfully the bedti ... Read More
