It is fair to say that Hubby and I (and our parents) spent a small fortune on our wedding day. We wanted it to be perfect. Naturally. We spent the majority of our budget on the wedding venue (a country house) which included the food and drinks for 60 people. I am glad we did this really, as looking back through the photographs the building and…

Oh Boden. You’ve done it again. Gorgeous and colourful pieces for the Summer that make us want to rush out, grab a Magnum, and a Pimms, and sit in the garden in the sunshine.

Summer is almost upon us…and with the (quite frankly) fabulous weather we’ve been having it is time to start preparing and thinking about the Summer!

You may have noticed that I am somewhat of a shopaholic. I have always been like that. I adore spending money, flashing the plastic, and buying new things. These days my budget is a lot lower than ever before. Mainly due to the fact that I no longer work and we’ve got the twins – who cost us a small fortune. And so most of…

With Spring – and Spring fashion – now here *eeeek!)*….I’ve decided that it’s time to start ditching my boots in favour of something lighter. Even though the rain doesn’t seem to be abating just yet, I feel very much done with my heavy, clumpy, Winter boots.

I find that they…

Ok, so the school run is not a catwalk. It isn’t a place for a fashion show. I have barely enough time in the morning to get the twins fed, their teeth brushed, dressed and ready before I even think about what I’m wearing. It doesn’t leave me very long to throw something together! Sometimes after dropping them off at preschool I may pop into town to…

Apparently I am currently ‘bang-on-trend’. According to the Guardian it is THE hairstyle of 2015, as seen at the Oscars. I had no idea I was being so trendy when I went into the salon and asked for a chop. But it looks as though I am in good company! It is fair to say that I was petrified when I went to the salon a few…

We love fashion in our house, in case you’ve noticed. And I love nothing more than buying and dressing the twins. It makes me so happy to see them in lovely clothes. I’m thinking of Spring/Summer pieces for them already – and what they can wear. I have been searching stores and online – looking for the trends and new fashion. These are a few items…
