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?

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
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:
Embellished Mistletoe Novelty Jumper (£29.50)
Animal Print Novelty Jumper (£29.50)
I have become very fond of a slogan tops and I put the blame on blogger Hannah Gale for passing me the bug. Let’s face it, I am not that cool girl that can wear anything and make it look trendy but I do find a statement top can make an ordinary outfit look fun and current in a quick and simple way.

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.
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
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.
Hello to summer in the UK where it rains, hails, gets hot (sometimes), gets cold, the wind blows (often) and all sometimes whithin one day. You may think I am exaggerating it….
but….no ;-)! The picture above and the one below were taken last July in London – South bank!
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.
I saw flashing it a few times on my Facebook feed Continue reading
I have seen a number of cool trends popping up for the Spring Summer! As much as I wish I could buy all of my favourite ones, the frugal mum that I need to be has to make decisions. Then Mother’s day happened and l’Homme offered me the chance to get a little treat. I really wanted a new little dress for the summer without breaking the bank and this little black gingham number hit the nail on the head:
