The Ultimate tote bag to date….

Picture 078

WHEN the government brought us bang up to speed with the rest of Europe by introducing a five-pence charge on carrier bags, I certainly found an additional use for my every increasing pile of tote bags acquired from events and press. Of course, they are incredible popular now , and the array of print,colours, and fabric is much to be desired – ( if like me you like that kind of thing). The problem I have with  tote bags however is,…

Dutch style cycling


I never quite understood Boris Johnson (former mayor of London’s) vision for cycling in London and his plan to create of cycle paths, until I visited  the Netherlands. Granted, I had been to Amsterdam, a few times , many moons ago, but it was work related and I didn’t really take in as much as I perhaps should have.  Fortunately, my stylist role  took me to Rotterdam this year, and my eyes were wide open and ready to absorb. As…

2016 001 - essentials

Last year I wrote a post called Bestival, and mused on what I would take with me, if I could just push myself far out enough of my comfort zone to camp in a tent. This  year, I actually get to live Glastonbury, and as I pack my festival essentials, I am filled with excitement and dread at the same time. Having closely been following all media covarage on this event – and  hearing that people have been stuck in…

The full monty

IMG_8392 yellow

One of the items that seems to have dominated my small wardrobe recently, is this full black mesh skirt. I find myself constantly gravitating towards it, and it gets a look in, at least once a week. It is so easy to dress up or down, and flatters my boyish figure beautifully. The interesting truth is, had I not seen this at a press preview, and been given the opportunity of it been gifted to me, I would not have…

Oils. Lotions & Potions…

If I got stuck on an island, the one thing I would crave for after food and water, would be a moisturiser! I simply cannot do without! The absence of it makes my skin feel one size smaller, and my lips go into hibernation.Having naturally, dry/Normal skin, a moisturiser is what stops the dial swinging from Normal to Dry. – The horror of pausing, whilst out and about,rummaging through my make-up bag and discovering that I have nothing to use on…

Styling a fellow Blogger

FullSizeRender (20)

Being a freelance stylist means I’ve had privy to many  a wardrobe in Britain and abroad. I sieve through clients wardrobes, decluttering and giving them my humble advice. I say ‘giving’, because they are paying clients, who have asked for my advice on style and Fashion.  So when fellow fashion blogger Karen (N4mummy), called to suggest that we do a styling shoot from each others wardrobes, I thought hmmm…- great idea! but how do you style someone who already has…

Frugal January…

FullSizeRender (22)

It bothers me, when I take my old clothes to the dry cleaners for mending or slight alterations and get charged exorbitant prices! It sometimes defeats and frustrates  the whole point of slow Fashion. The incident that broke the camels back, occurred a few weeks ago, when I took my beautiful traditional deep purple Chinese dress (which I have owned for over 12 years) to my local dry cleaner. I asked for him to hem a few areas on both…

A Practical Christmas tree

FullSizeRender (14)

Yes, I did put the tree up last Thursday, but what with managing my Christmas Pop up shop, running errands, and having a life, I am only just posting now. (Those of you who kindly read the last post would understand this statement). This year, I decided to go for Christmas decorations, that do more than just look pretty, because, come the 1st of January (or when ever it is, that you take your Christmas tree down) all decorations get…

My SAVVY winter


Having spent part of my formative years in a warmer climate, readjusting to winter took a long time indeed. I was constantly cold, even though I wrapped myself up like the Michelin man, and perceptually had frozen  hands and feet! I was one of those you shook hands with, and said, “wow, your hands are cold”! I suppose having a slight build, meant I had less body fat to keep me warm, but the layers I tried to compensate with, were…
