Style

In my Style category you’ll find posts covering beauty, interiors and fashion. I love chatting about interiors, musing about fashion and sharing my own beauty regimes.

Style: My Mum Uniform

I’ve spent a while honing my mum uniform, and though I want to edge towards more dresses at some point, but at the moment it’s a skinny jeans with a lot of stretch, a jumper and a pair of flip flops. However the temperatures are rapidly decreasing and especially at 8.15 in the morning it is a bit too chilly…

Style: Winter Warmers Wishlist

I love wrapping up but only when it is properly cold, I can’t be doing with being too hot and we’re definitely coming into those awkward few weeks when you need a coat in the morning pre-9am but not any time after midday as it’s too warm. At the moment I am still in a jumper and flip flops most…

Style: Yoga wear with Asquith

Now Athena is at school and Arlo with the childminder three days a week I am really hoping to carve out some time for myself  during the week. I’ve not done any proper exercise other than the odd swim or long woodland walk since Athena was born and shes now four! Having two kids in under two years has definitely…

Style: RayBan Wayfarers from Ottica

I go though sunglasses like there’s no tomorrow. They either get lost, scratched or pulled apart by the kids. Till now it’s not mattered that much as they’ve all been cheap pairs but now I am taking much better care of a pair of new Wayfarers from RayBan. I was planning to get a new pair of sunnies to take…

Forking out hundreds of pounds on new…

Interiors: Brabantia Laundry & Recycling solutions

Let’s face it, nobody likes talking about cleaning, or even dealing with it really! But family life generally means you have a fair amount of excess waste and dirty clothes on a daily basis, despite trying to limit it by recycling and re-wearing! As Athena nears school age where she will be wearing uniform daily, and probably dirtying it daily…

Beauty: Elizabeth Grant Hydra Cell Active from Ideal World TV

I’ve been using the Hydra Cell Active range from Elizabeth Grant  for almost four weeks now, and so far so good! My skin is on the dry side, but can get a little oily especially in warm weather. My previous skincare routine was to use a little facial oil every couple of days and moisturise in the evenings when I…

Interiors: Made to Measure Roman Blinds

I’ve written before about wanting to get the kitchen finished now we’ve been here a year (exactly a year last week in fact!) and we’re almost done with the kitchen! We had two windows replaced just after christmas for double glazed ones and it’s made a huge difference to the room. One was a big bay window which we’ve kept…
