I just realised that I actually have to make the things I’m going to do ‘one day’ happen

A favourite sentence starter of my boss’s is "If you get hit by a bus tomorrow…". To be clear and so that you don’t think he’s a sadist (debatable); the phrase is one he uses as a precursor to discuss the benefits of sharing skills and knowledge amongst the team. A valid point, but hearing… Continue reading I just realised that I actually have to make the things I’m going to do ‘one day’ happen

Making my wardrobe work harder: ways to style a checked suit

Well well well, isn’t this a blast from the past. If you ever found yourself on this blog last year, you may be loosely familiar with this ‘series’ that I think I only ever actually did around five times, which involved taking one item and styling it four different ways.

A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

The 'confession' I'm going to share today seems strange considering that 1) I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and 2) I post a shameful number of photos of myself loitering in the street to illustrate my outfits. Obviously I put it in the title (the clickbait was ridiculous with just the first… Continue reading A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online
