Yorkshire Sculpture Park – Spring 2017

I’ve just come back from a return trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I first visited in January 2017 and I enjoyed it so much I couldn’t wait to go again. As per my visit in January it rained, this time it was torrential, but it didn’t really matter because there were so many new exhibits on…

Clothing Collaborations

It’s amazing how influential clothing collaborations are. We’ve (well I haven’t but my daughter has) all queued for the latest H&M / designer partnering, and who didn’t swoop down on the TopShop/Kate Moss collection a few years back? Personally I’m fortunate to be able to buy the real thing and I don’t often succumb to…

Reykjavik – Hot and cool at the same time.

  I’ve just booked a return trip to Reykjavik for December 2017. I don’t often go back to the same place twice, save Sydney and New York, however the last time we visited we got stuck in a snow storm so bad that we ended up missing most of the sights. So, alongside the not…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits this week (19th May 2017)

I’m still wearing Christopher Kane. It turns out I had much more of his clothing than I’d originally anticipated  – I am nearing the end though – I’ve got about 10 more outfits left to complete my challenge. It’s been an interesting experience, not least because I’ve had to dig out clothes from my wardrobe…

Wheel Pose Challenge

At the start of the year I challenged myself to be able to do a really good wheel pose by the end of the year. Whilst this may seem easy to some of you it’s virtually impossible for me. I have lower back problems which seriously debilitate me and have caused me significant problems in…

Delightful Dubrovnik

My parents are currently living it up in Dubrovnik exactly two years after I visited the city to rapturous acclaim. Every day for the next week I will be reminded of the glorious week I spent there courtesy of my Facebook memories so I thought it was time to put pen to paper – so…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits this week (12th May 2017)

Finally it looks like spring has arrived. I know that Britain had a heat-wave before Easter but I was in Myanmar having a heat wave of my own and missed it. I subsequently returned home to arctic temperatures with hail and snow and spent the first two weeks back in the UK in black and…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits this week (6th May 2017)

Yup, I’m still wearing Christopher Kane. I wanted to prove that if you buy quality clothes they never go out of fashion and I hope that I have done just that. For the past six weeks I’ve been wearing a different Christopher Kane outfit (from my wardrobe) every single day (barring my holiday in Myanmar)…

Mary Quant in Manchester

I’ve never heard of the Gallery of Costume in Manchester. I’m well aware of the Costume Institute at The Met in NYC, particularly given the annual Met Gala on Monday night, but when my o/h suggested we visit the one in Manchester, it left me slightly confused, and a bit miffed that I’d never been…
