So how is everyone getting on with their Christmas shopping? Are you feeling rather smug at having finished wrapping all of your presents, or are you in full-on panic mode about how much you have to do? My current state is that I’m actually pretty organised – although there are still some last gifts I need to get (there always is though, isn’t there?). Plus…

The biggest issue I’ve had this year with my own style is that I’ve always felt as though I’m just not daring enough. I’m not particularly wacky or unique and I haven’t got a trademark or signature style like other women do. If I walk into a clothes shop I’ll invariably go for items that are grey, black, tan or white – or reach for…

Our poor kitchen table has been tampered with yet again and has endured yet another Soothill makeover! When we first moved into our new-build family home over 2 years ago (from a country-style cottage) we brought with us a traditional farmhouse table and chairs that my parents had given to us. It thus didn’t work in our modern, shiny, new grey kitchen and we absolutely…

I feel as though it’s the right time that I can officially do this post. Christmas talk is now well under way, people are getting rather excited about the big day approaching and so I think it’s more than Okay to discuss Christmas wish-lists and what we’d all like to get under the tree from Santa this year, right?

Even though I am a massive fan of everything tan, I have never owned a long, camel coat. I know. I’m actually pretty shocked at myself too. Because you simply cannot go wrong with a camel coat hanging up in your wardrobe, can you? They go perfectly well with black trousers, boyfriend jeans, as well as dresses. They can be made super-causal by adding in…

There’s not a week that goes past that I don’t mention (or at least hint at the fact) that I work from home, so apologies for that. But in my defence, when you work freelance/have your own home office it means a lot to you! Walking in to my iMac on my desk each morning after a crazy stressful school-run with the twins really can…

A style that I keep being drawn to more and more lately – is that of Parisian. I’ve noticed that a lot of the images I subconsciously ‘like’ on Instagram, the outfits I tend to ‘pin’ on Pinterest and the articles I like to read online are heavily influenced by the French style, in some way.

Life as a blogger has evolved quite organically for me. One day, back in April 2014, I started this little blog as a result of a few things but mostly because I was at home full-time with my baby twins and it was a fun hobby to do. I’d previously had a serious Human Resources job, where I had been trying to climb the corporate…
