Cool ‘n’ The BAG

Many of you , who kindly read my post , would know that I favour a tote bag over a handbag, and have over a hundred of them. They are cheap enough, come in a plethora of prints as well as sizes, and afford me the indulgence of swapping bags from day to day. I often find a lot of hand bags, either over embellished, or with a brand name screaming at me, and to carry this on a day…

The Metamorphosis of a good old book to …..

I started reading a book over the weekend, the first in over a year! I’d been thinking about reading a good book for a long while now, but since driving came on the scene, reading for pleasure became insurmountable! Last week, whilst talking to my neighbour,who has a big library, I mentioned the need  to sink my teeth into a good book – she instantly produced a fat softback, which I  haven’t been able to put down since. Prior to that,…

How I Rock bridesmaid dresses post weddings!

I remember being a flower girl at many a wedding, whilst still a child. The dresses were always picked I now presume, by the bride, and were usually white, creamy, or floral. Being a child, I just enjoyed the moments, attention, and the awww, ‘so cute ‘ comments, that my twin and I attracted. Needless to say, I was unaware of how much it cost to have us both kitted out for the weddings, or what would happen to the clothes…

The Ultimate tote bag to date….

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,…

The full monty

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…

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…

Individual ME

Hooray!! LONDON FASHION WEEK kicked off and ended this week. It’s always exciting to see all the designs, colours, fabrics, textures and draw inspiration from them. However, I am of the school of thought, that with most things in Life,  one should be as individual as you can be (in an organic way). Of course, one is  inspired by everything that surrounds one, but I believe it should enhance one’s individuality, not cause one to conform. Needless to say, the…

Liberated collaborations

Whilst not a big fan of floral prints, over the years, I have come to have an appreciation for them . The reason being, this collaborating era that we find ourselves in, which allows different artistic worlds to collide, re-interpret floral prints and birth amazing masterpieces. How fun is it that Artists and photographers, are no longer confined to galleries, and private collections – , that Street-wear meets couture, that there is an alchemy of Architecture and fashion, that lifestyle…

Bestivals

Each year the festivals come around, I watch them on television and I’m totally blown away by the music, stage performances and the atmosphere, wishing I was there. I  promise myself to book tickets for the following year. I call up a few friends making a path with them to go the following summer, to camp out for a few days under the English weather!, to have a wet wipe shower, endure the toilets, mud… and the list goes on.…

For the love of Stationery….

One of the things I enjoy about London, especially, when the weather starts to warm up – is the never ending celebrations of our numerous hobbies and indulgences. A few weeks ago, it was London Hat week, then we had National Record week, and now, it’s National Stationery week!! Hooray for me! Those who know me well, will be aware that I am a sucker for a notebook. I get pleasure from looking at them, buying them, and being gifted…
