Whenever summer ends and autumn arrives I always breathe a huge sigh of relief that it’s the end of not knowing what the hell to wear. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE summer as a season (as a Mum of two it’s also the best and easiest time to be a parent by a country mile) — but dressing myself for these hotter months…

Oh my. Talking ALREADY about autumn style and the onset of a new season and chapter in our lives. I’m SO not ready to go there yet, are you?

‘Tis (almost) the season for the Christmas party. Being invited to work Christmas meals, the office party, or just going out for a meal with loved ones. It is the most dressed up time of year…*squeals!*.

Next month sees the celebration of our 7 year wedding anniversary. Hubby and I got married in a country house hotel on a cold, crisp February day – with frost on the ground but the sun shining. It was lovely. This photograph makes me smile every time I see it. It shows just how happy I am on the day. And I love the way I…
