The best things in life are Free (mans)!

Yep, your eyes are not deceiving you, I am back with a blog post. After some time away and full of blogger enthusiasm I feel it is the time to put my ramblings back in print and go with the flow of blogging as and when, A: I have time, B: I have something exciting […]

Luxury legs!

It take’s something really special to catch my eye and blog about to my readers. So when I discovered these skinny jeans that promised to be very slimming, comfortable and long enough for my legs…Whats not to love? They honestly do all of the above , and more. With a higher waist band (but not […]

Back with a bump…

And that does not include the landing of the plane, that thank goodness was pretty smooth. I mean the temperature has dropped so much that my newly (slightly) tanned body is not going to see the light of day, I am even considering covering up the ole’ ankles and hands and just baring my brown […]

Embellished denim

Two of my favourite things and all in one shirt…Bliss. I was very lucky to receive this amazing shirt from Gray and Osbourn and delighted to be able to tell you all about it.  It has everything ..embellished lapels with white and black pearls and diamond ( very on trend), it is beautiful light weight cotton […]

Furry friends.

Hola! I am back from a fantastic (kid free) long weekend in Marbella with the hubby and feeling very refreshed and excited. Refreshed because of the lay-in’s and excited because I bought a very lovely treat. The weather was a little disappointing, but with not much sun I convinced Mr HOL to have a little […]

Leopard Print skirt.. Two ways.

Like many of us fashion lovers I am more than a bit attracted to a spot of leopard print. Not head to toe aka “Bet Linch” but the odd shoe, scarf, bag, blouse and now a gorgeous pencil skirt courtesy of Gray and Osbourn. I must admit I had not been aware of Gray and […]

Stripes, block and rips

I am channeling a lot of different looks today, maybe I am confused or maybe I got ready in a daze after my youngest has started to rise before the birds for the fourth day running and I am lucky if I manage to get out of the house without my Pj’s on. That said, […]

What I wore: The tran-seasonal coat

Happy Monday and what a gorgeous morning it was aswell, although a bit chilly first thing on the school run. With this in mind it was time to break out my lightweight cream coat from Zara last year. This coat is perfect for this transitional period and light enough to keep wearing even when the […]

Races style dilemma

With the St Ledger festival in 10 days , I am quickly running out of time to purchase the perfect races outfit. Yes, I do have dresses I could wear but there is nothing like stepping out in a brand new dress and well put together accessories to make your day more special. I am […]

Black and patches

Last week I had a little day trip to London for a meeting and managed to visit my favourite place in the world Selfridges. In the short time I was there I managed to clock up a Christmas Wish List…. always forward thinking!, people watched from the champagne bar and loitered in Chanel stroking all […]

Grey as the day

Hi folks, hope you all had a great bank holiday despite the miserable weather. We had planned a day at Clumber park to play football and cricket and cycle around the lake as it was my middle son’s birthday today, but the weather put at stop to that one . Spencer was then asked what […]

Back to my style

As I have mentioned before and for those of you who follow me on instagram and twitter, you will know I have been in the midst of a wardrobe and house overhaul. No cupboard, wardrobe or corner of the house was safe from my determined and ruthless cull. I know it’s summer ( someone tell […]

Surprises in a box

It’s always a nice surprise to get an unexpected parcel. Especially when it has been picked especially for you. So it was a pleasant surprise to receive a gift for me to try on and blog about, should I like it. I am not going to tell you who it was from yet, because I […]

Comfort zones and the drama of “The” spotty dress

What an eventful day today. I shall begin at the very beginning, a very good place to start (as the song goes). Everybody I am sure who follows or writes blogs will be aware of “THE” spotty dress that the beautiful and ever-growing style crush of mine Laura from  wore only a few weeks ago […]

Refreshed and ready..

Yes I am back from my hols and feeling refreshed and ready to take my blog to the next level. I have been mulling things over and after reading lots of blogs I have decided that I am definitely going to go back to my comfort zone of neutrals and casual dressing aka my girl […]

Statement skirt.

Hi Peeps, I have been so excited for the big yellow ball in the sky to make a grand appearance and finally get some serious summer clothes an airing, and what better weather to get the pins out in a statement skirt. Being tall (and on the wrong side of 40) its hard to find […]

Back in black…

Hi Folks! …Yes I am back after a little break and I am glad to tell you I shall be blogging away from now on. I threw myself into this blog and sort of burnt myself out! I started this blog through my love of fashion and wanted it to be a journal of my […]

Floral and flouncey..

Hola!!!!…. I am alive!! Hi Folks, I have eventually dragged myself back kicking and screaming from the beautiful shores of Spain. We had a great (extended) holiday and now I am on serious detox from the “drink a glass of wine cause its sunny” attitude that a foreign climate seems to bring. I hope you […]
