How to defy the signs of ageing

I can’t say I have ever worried too much about the ageing signs on my skin – I am quite lucky that people often think I look a bit younger than I am.

However, the brutal truth is that my face skin and my body (3 pregnancies + breastfeeding ) are definitely not what they used to be and maybe time has come that I give my body some extra TLC Continue reading

Investing in timeless fashion pieces or the art of curating

Red cloud bag

I don’t know if it’s me fast approaching my 40s or what, but this winter I am reviewing the way I am spending my money on clothes and accessories. If I am not quite ready to drop altogether the cheaper retailers – it’s hard to resist the purchase of a few new items ‘in fashion’ at times. However, I am now thinking that the time has come to buy a few timeless items that I will cherish for a longer period of time. I am also thinking that, if I shall deem them ‘timeless pieces’ I should be spending a little bit more money for better quality and longevity. Which pieces should deserve your money and better quality (if you have to make a choice)? For me I would want to consider:  a good handbag, a quality purse, a pretty classic looking watch, a leather belt, a leather jacket/suede jacket or a shearling leather jacket, an item with some cashmere…what would you add to that list?

How to pull an all-black outfit

I purchased a beautiful black Ruffled turtle neck Jumper from La Redoute last week and as I received it I started to think how I would pair it with other clothes of mine. Although I like black in winter, you will probably never see me dressed all in black. Personally, I find it a bit too harsh and a bit too moody. Instead, I like to style it with colourful accessories.

I am massively fond of pendant earrings and in particular of tassel earrings. I bought this pair from Continue reading

My finest selection of Christmas jumpers

After more than 10 years in the UK, the Christmas jumpers tradition has definitely grown on me. Now, I love seeing friends, colleagues and family parading in their Christmas themed jumpers and tops from now until Christmas.

It is a cheesy tradition I will admit but a fun one nonetheless. Could you resist the temptation one more year or fall for one item from my selection? I have ‘curated’ for you the nicest models on the web and I hope you find a lovely model to buy right now before they all end up out of stock because it’s all too late.

So here we go:

The return of the bandana scarf

You know guys, I am a huge fan of accessories: earrings, belts, scarves…these are the details that make me and can give just this more personable look.

Red bandana look in London

You will often see me wear a scarf as I have a tendency to have a sensitive throat but in summer, wearing a scarf is more a little detail to complement a look. One of my sisters wanted to spoil me for my birthday this summer and I asked her if she could find me a bandana scarf. Continue reading

It’s all about the frills

I have made no secret I like looking feminine. I may not always be able to be bang on trend or be the coolest girl on the block but, with age, I just try to find my own style. I have always loved the addition of frills on certain pieces of clothing so what a treat it is fashionable this season. What it means is that there are tonnes of cute clothes with frills this summer in the shops & online.

My new Fashion crush is called….HUSH!

It’s taken me ages to find my style fashion wise and I made lots of mistakes over the years. Looking at old photos, I cringe in horror! Pinterest has massively helped me to find what I think is ME (I created a My style board which was a good starting point!) In terms of Fashion shopping, I have often bought clothes from a variety of shops but none has never quite matched my newfound style. Well, that was until recently as I finally came across a brand that covers nearly all my styles and needs: it’s called HUSH.
