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…

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…

Living it up in Lucca, Tuscany

Last week, after an amazing twelve years we said goodbye to our incredible Tuscan villa, which is located in the hills behind Lucca. It’s been an epic adventure – one which has brought joy and happiness to everyone that’s been lucky to enjoy the place with us. Sadly, however, it’s time to say goodbye and…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (8th April 2017)

This was supposed to be my final week of wearing Christopher Kane clothes for 30 consecutive days. I honestly didn’t realise I owned so many beautiful pieces from his collections over the past 10 years. I have however realised two things: 1.I have very definitely underestimated the amount that I own and can easily do…

Holiday Packing Dilemmas

I’m going to Burma next week. I know I should call it by it’s real name (Myanmar) but whenever people ask me where I’m going on my holidays and I say Myanmar, they look at me totally clueless so I have to explain it’s Burma. I’ve always wanted to explore Myanmar. I love South East…

What I’d love for Mother’s Day

If you are a mother, Mother’s Day should be the one day a year that you get to be looked after, pampered and waited on hand and foot, although if you are a mother, you’ll know that this rarely happens, not in my household anyway. My daughter is now old enough to earn her own…

My Love of Lycra

I’ve got an obsession with Lycra. For anyone reading my blog regularly they’ll already know I’ve got an obsession with dresses. My love of Lycra is for the same reason, like dresses it’s easy (and comfortable) to wear. I spend a lot of time at the gym. I try to go at least five times…

Christopher Kane – Day 1 – 72

I reckon I must be one of the biggest ambassadors for British fashion. And I don’t just mean like people who get paid to promote brands. Or those that are given clothes to sashay around in. I mean by someone who actually invests in clothes that are British designed and wears them on a regular…

Lush Love

I’ve just tidied up my daughter’s bathroom and this is what I’ve found: 12 Lush shower jellies 6 bottles of Lush body conditioner 4 Lush lip scrubs 22 Lush (crumbling) bathbombs 15 bars of soap from Lush 6 unopened Lush gift sets Seriously, how many products can one own from Lush? Clearly she’s been saving…

Tai Chi

I did Tai Chi this weekend.  It was a wet miserable Sunday in the UK and I had nothing better to do so I thought I’d give it a go. I’ve been before actually, but it was a long time ago and I’d forgotten how therapeutic and relaxing it is. I think the main reason…
