There is SO much advice here, there and everywhere with regards to what exactly is in/currently ‘on trend’ – and what we should buy right now for summer. Sure, the models in the top fashion magazines look striking in their slightly obscure outfits – but just how do we (the average person) take that trend and transfer it into our own daily…

One trend hitting the high street hard, and can be seen all over Instagram right now, is the cute and gorgeous straw accessory that is the handbag. Not only to be confined to the beach, there is a place for the wicker/straw bag in day-to-day life. City life, countryside living or Mum style! The straw bag is the accessory of…

When it comes to clothes, one of THE hardest things about being a busy Mum of two is finding outfits that are stylish & flattering but that are also really practical.

Dave has been travelling a lot more with work lately – needing to stay all over the UK but particularly spending a lot of time in & around London. So carting a large suitcase around the tube (with his suit pockets full of coins, tickets and phones etc) hasn’t been practical. He was therefore in desperate need of a ‘man bag’…

I’m a bit in love with Posh Spice right now – aka the fashion power-house that is Victoria Beckham. Her recent ‘stepping out & about’ clothes are classic, mature but oh-so-stylish. Casual dressing that looks effortlessly chic (although I am sure that her outfits are meticulously planned out!). Think wide trousers, crisp white shirts, polo neck jumpers, blazers. Even trainers!…
