Party Dresses for the Festive Season

Christmas is slowly creeping up on us. This year I’m trying to be particularly organised as we are going on holiday at the end of November. As well as trying to get my Christmas shopping done as early as possible, I’ve also been having a browse around for party dresses. During December we have a few Christmas parties to attend and they’re often quite glam dos – I love an excuse to get glammed up! I have recently started buying more of my clothes online as it is just so hard to find the time to have a good browse round the…

Finding the perfect gift

It’s October already? That must mean it’s practically Christmas, and once the shops have emptied the last of their pumpkins, broomsticks and fake spiders, it’s time to think about all that present buying you need to do. It doesn’t matter how many people you have to buy for, this always seems like a stressful task as you try to improve on last years present. For all those ladies out there who love to be organised, this is also the perfect time to pick up bargains for birthdays in future. But how do you decide on what to get people? How…

Autumn Fashion – My Top Wardrobe Picks

Last week, when I first thought about writing this post, it felt like autumn had arrived. However, this week it seems like summer isn’t over just yet! As much as I love summer (it’s my most favourite season), I must admit that I do love the change in wardrobe that autumn brings. Spring/summer fashion tends to be bright, bold and more laid back. Whilst autumn fashion is generally brings darker, more muted colours, cosy jumpers, tights, boots and generally a smarter vibe. Basically everything that I love. When September arrives I always tend to start looking around for a few things to update…

The perfect summer dress

Recently I’ve been trying to add a little more colour to my wardrobe, particularly as it’s summertime (despite what the varying weather suggests!). When I was approached by JD Williams to try a dress from their summer collection, I thought it was an ideal opportunity to try something nice and bright. Browsing through the collection, I was immediately drawn to this red dress. I’m a huge fan of v-necks as they are super flattering and I thought this style would suit my shape. I loved the bright, vibrant colour too! I originally ordered the dress in a size 12, but…

Perfect dresses for a day at the …

Tomorrow, hubby and I are off to the Victoria Cup race day at Ascot. We are taking my Mum and Dad. You may recall that they recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. We always struggle knowing what to buy them so, as they’ve never been before, we thought it would be a perfect gift. We do quite a lot with them and we knew they’d enjoy it more if we were there too, plus any excuse to get glammed up and drink champagne works for me! I think one of the best bits about going to the races, is the chance to get…

The perfect parka part 2

You may recall that a few weeks ago I was on the hunt for the perfect parka. Well I’m delighted to report that I’ve found ‘the one’ – it was the Oasis coat, which was number 1 in my shortlist. The really great news was that John Lewis were offering 30% off, which made convincing Simon that little bit easier!  I love it, it’s so comfy and the big hood is very handy when doing the school run. It has a detachable fur lining inside, so when the whether warms up a little I can remove it and wear the…
