Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

The way that the topic for this blog post came into my head is kind of embarrassing, but let's roll with it. Today I spent probably two of my fully dressed hours pulling my culottes out of my arse (how’s that for TMI?), where they seemed determined to reside for the majority of the day.… Continue reading Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

Dressing for (sort of) spring when winter doesn’t seem to be going away

Like all British people in perhaps the entire history of the world, I’m prone to getting wildly overexcited the moment the faintest glimpses of sunlight break through our perpetually cloudy sky. This has led me to wearing all manner of warm-weather outfits before it's been comfortable to do so in the past, and after one… Continue reading Dressing for (sort of) spring when winter doesn’t seem to be going away

I hopped aboard the suit trend and it made me feel seriously sassy

The £20 outfit I found in the dregs of the January sales

I consider sale shopping - along with crisp eating, overthinking, and using 1000 words when 100 will suffice, amongst others - to be in my top 10 skills. I know, I know; some can play an instrument, some can speak another language, and lots of people can do all manner of impressive things, but I… Continue reading The £20 outfit I found in the dregs of the January sales

A chat about balance in our approach to New Years Resolutions

The internet, the office, the streets and who knows what else are rather awash with discussion at the moment on the big January tradition; New Years Resolutions. Half of what I’ve heard is ‘this year I’m going to change this’ or ‘my resolution is to…’ and half of it is ‘no new years resolutions plz’… Continue reading A chat about balance in our approach to New Years Resolutions
