I should be so lucky lucky lucky lucky

Sometimes I have to get a grip, catch onto myself and realise just how lucky I am sometimes. I have a great family, lovely friends, live in the best city in the world and work is just about passable oh and I am off to Ibiza in a month…….some of these trickets from Eclectic Eccentricty should help remind you and at reasonable prices its a cheaper way of feeling lucky.

Embrace your inner farmer

With all these pictures of everyone swirling around the mud at Glastonbury today and with the summer shaping up to be a right damp squip I decided to go all topical and introduce you to the Curve Range at WedgeWelly.

Some of the ranges out this summer are lovely and are great for a bit of comfort. My...

They don’t make em like they used to

I especially loved the colours in Albert Moore’s work White is my all time favourite colour especially for clothes and this painting Symphony in White by James Whistler really spoke to me. I love the different contrasts of...

Pucker up

I was feeling a bit miserable today and took out my favourite item EVER! my LULU Guinness perspex red lip clutch.
