What do you think?
Do you like pastel suede or do you feel suede 
should only be worn in it's natural colour?

Would also love to know if you agree with this Anna
Wintour quote. It's a little controversial, but as
always I would love to hear your thoughts.

Spring Is For Color

Apr 2, 2015

Spring really feels like it has finally arrived.
I so love this time of year; a time of re-birth, renewal,
optimism, and hope.

It's been a hard Winter for me after losing
my beloved Dad, and each day is still
a painful reminder of what I have lost.

However, the gorgeous colours I seem to see
everywhere gives me a real "spring" in my
step (sorry for the pun).

It is such a short season and doesn't
even exist when I am in Spain where 
it seems to go from Winter to Summer 
within 1 week!!

 I need to be eased into this gorgeous season
slowly, so that I can really savour the changes that
are taking place around me, and also within myself.

New dreams, plans, get my drift ;-)

I find this quote so true. 
Spring, the time for new beginnings that you may have
been incubating during the long Winter months.
What one project are you really keen to take forward?

Wishing you all a fabulous long weekend whether 
you celebrate Easter or not .


Grown Up Bo-ho

Mar 20, 2015

It seems like grown-up boho
is back!
Folksy prints, floral maxis. So it's
time to coax our bohemian alter ego
to come forth ;-)

Are you a boho babe?
Will you be channeling your feminine folksy side this Summer?
Do Marrakech, the Kings Road, printed kaftans and 
layered jewellery make you want to skip in a field of daisies ;-)

Would love to know your thoughts.

Happy Weekend Lovelies

Cinderella Moment

Mar 13, 2015

It's seems every fashion magazine you look at
it's all about the BIG ball gown.
Everyone is going "meringue mad" and
"full on frou-frou".

At the recent fashion shows Dior, Jenny Packham 
and my favourite Elie Saab were making fairytales
a reality for all the stars.

adding fuel to the fire

Here are some of my favourites.

Elie Saab 2015

Christian Dior 2015

My favourite by Ralph & Russo.

Elie Saab 2015

Now I just need to find me a fairy godmother who will
let me go to the ball.

Anyone know one? ;-)

Finally do pop over to the lovely Sunny Days and
Starry Nights blog where the lovely Tracy interviewed me
and got me to share some of my organisation tips, along
with my story of why I gave up being a Criminal Psychologist
to spend all day with sparkles.

Have a wonderful weekend/week Lovelies
