Boreal Women's Jacket from Didriksons

I’ve become a huge fan of the Swedish outdoor clothing brand over the last few years, and Monkey can regularly be seen in his red winter coat. The various jackets and waterproofs he’s had, have really worn well, and have kept him warm and dry.  I was recently offered the… Continue reading »

Getting colourful with Joe Browns #JBColourful

Getting colourful with Joe Browns

When a brand you love approaches you and gives you a challenge it’s hard to say no.   I’ve been getting colourful with Joe Browns and hoping for sunnier days ahead.  I reviewed for them way back in April 2014 and then again later that year with one of their tunic… Continue reading »

ChattyFeet give our feet some drama

ChattyFeet give our feet some drama

I’ve never really thought about buying novelty socks before if I’m honest. Daddy P’s feet are too large for most brands of normal socks, so he’s never received a pair of anything other than practical socks.  But that shouldn’t mean that Monkey and I shouldn’t have some fun should it? ChattyFeet give… Continue reading »

Apricot - Fashion for all

I’m 47, it’s a fact I can’t get away from.  The face that looks back at me in the mirror doesn’t lie.  I’ve always loved clothes and whilst I’ve never considered myself a trend setter or someone who needs ‘that’ label, I’d hate to be thought of as frumpy.  God… Continue reading »

I do love clothes and a bit of retail therapy will always put a spring in my step.  I know I’m a bit predictable, I love my blues and tend to shy away from patterns, but I’m trying to be braver this year, trying to make some changes to my… Continue reading »

Dressing the part with House of Fraser

Dressing the part with House of Fraser

As you will have seen in my Banking for Victory post yesterday I got to meet Mary Berry last month.  My invite was fairly last minute so I hadn’t had much time to think of a suitable outfit.  Thankfully help was at hand and I was dressing the part with House… Continue reading »

I’m in the Blue with me&i

I'm in the Blue with me&i

I’m a big fan of the Swedish clothing company me&i and both Monkey and I have enjoyed reviewing their collection over the last year.  The clothes look great and wear well too.  For Spring and Summer this year I’m in the blue with me&i again, thanks to this lovely top… Continue reading »

Dressing the part with La Redoute

Dressing the part with La Redoute

My best friend is always telling me about La Redoute and suggesting that I try them for something different.  I decided that I needed a new direction for my Spring/Summer wardrobe and so I’m dressing the part with La Redoute. La Redoute makes French style accessible to all – with… Continue reading »
