Even though we were all dreading the onset of the autumn weather and the dark nights, October actually started off pretty mild, didn’t it? I got my big coat out. And then I put it away again. I’ve therefore been living in coatigans & blazers and still been wearing my shades on the school run.

I wrote a post last week about why I’m getting back into the art of blogging again; i.e. why my blog is still important to me and how I think ‘the blog’ still has a role to play in todays modern way of taking in information. It was actually really nice to get so much great feedback on the post…

I know that everyone goes absolutely crazy over leopard print whenever someone posts a photo of their new coat, boots, loafers or bag on Instagram – but for me I have occasionally found it a hard print to buy & wear. Mainly because my life mostly involves doing the school run and working from home – and I therefore can…
