Autumn / Winter 2018 Trends – Part 1 Animal Print

We are having the best Summer for weather that I can ever remember, it’s hard to imagine that in a couple of months we will be back in coats and jumpers and wooly hats!

I don’t want this lovely Summer to end but there is one thing about the approach of Autumn and Winter that I am looking forward to and that’s the fashion. I’m going to do a series of blog posts focusing on the main trends for Autumn / Winter so that you can start shopping with them in mind.

Oak Lodge Glamping – campsite review.

We have just got back from a lovely long weekend glamping with friends at Oak Lodge Glamping in Norfolk. I have never been glamping before and I am now fully converted.

Magic Swimsuits!

Colourblock Shaping Swimsuit £60 Figleaves

There is one little thing nagging at the back of my mind and I don’t think i’m the only woman who has this problem. I cannot under any circumstances feel comfortable and relaxed when i’m in a swimsuit. I think everyone’s looking at me, everyone is staring at every lump and bump, everyone looks better in a swimsuit than me and everyone else is more confident in their skin. Continue reading
