I caught up with a blogging friend the other day at a blogging & small business event and she mentioned to me that she didn’t get how I fitted all my commitments into my week! Blogging, social media management, twins and my general Mum-life. I laughed…because even though I do have A LOT going on myself right now, I also…

One of my favourite clothing brands for our whole family is Joules. The quality and style of their clothing is superb – and I am never disappointed when an item arrives through the post. Plus they always seem to last SO many washes and for years! My favourite pieces that I regularly buy myself from Joules are blazers and dresses.…

If you work from home, or you’re a stay-at-home-Mum, or your work-wear is fairly casual, then you’ll probably be similar to me in what I wear during the week. Jeans, tops and jackets. Tick.

The ‘slogan tee’ is super HOT across the high street right now and is definitely a key trend for 2017.

Isn’t it SOOOOOOO nice to be able to ditch our ‘big coats’ at the moment? Since we retuned from skiing in the French Alps last week we have all been basking in glorious spring sunshine. We have been in the garden, enjoying the park and even sitting in a pub beer garden! Amazing weather is here..at last! I have decided…

Greenery was identified by Pantone as the colour of 2017. They said: “It is a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of…

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’…
