Can we talk about why I must resort to looking like the captain of a ship in nautical stripes or a throwback to the 60’s with teeny tiny ditsy florals just because I’m about to birth another human?     I’ve been wearing my normal clothes for as long as possible but even leggings are getting pinchy now and I…

  I've had this post ready to write for some time now but it just feels like Spring is taking forever and a day to rear it's head! So as it is now officially Spring, come sun or snow, I thought i'd share my essential style list of the key pieces you will be seeing this season, as well as…

How to prepare for a personal styling session

A styling session with a stylist we all need from time-to-time. Consider booking a session in 2021 for your own style management. Every now and then it’s good to get some professional advice on your styling – a personal 1-2-1 styling session with a stylist can really boost your confidence. Even as a qualified stylist myself, I love others having…

First things first - do not just dump them outside of the shop as they are likely to get wet and…

Like a lot of people, I have been working away from my house since March 2020 and have found my home in layers, trackies, lounge wear and the occasional blanket. Recently, when packing away my summer clothes in December (it’s been on the to-do list for a while), I unearthed a whole bunch of clothes I have not seen for…

Buried under a mountain of clothes you're desperate to get rid of? Or do you have a shopping bag in the hallway that's ready to be donated that you just don't know what to do with? Haven't got the time or patience to sell it online? Pop the kettle on, I think I can help!   If like me during…

WHY SOCIAL MEDIA IS GOOD FOR YOUR OWN STYLE MANAGEMENT

Inspiration for outfits could not be easier with style on social media; there is so much style on social media it's all at your fingertips! I feel social media gets a bad wrap a lot of the time; but if you are open-minded, look past all the curated unrealistic lifestyles that are produced only for likes and followers and find…

A wardrobe staple and the all-time classic, the maxi coat is a must. It has everything you are looking for in a perfect coat: it is classy, sophisticated, comfortable, very warm and it makes you look cool. Whether you choose to mix it into an outfit as a way to complement it or simply cover everything up, my advice is,…
