Everything’s Gone Green

A couple of weeks ago I became ever so slightly obsessed with a Tom Ford blazer that had appeared on the Spring 2018 catwalks. I needed it.  As if all life depended on it, this hot pink vision of absolutely flamboyant fashion perfection. And thus I set out to find a high street version, trawling the internet, expecting it to …

Sosandar – Dresses for Spring

    Those of you who have been following me for a while, or perhaps have read my About Me page, are likely to know that I am on a career break from being a Product Developer and Production Manager.  What does this mean?  As a product developer, I look at trend forecasts, the brand’s customer profile and then work …

Good Things Come To Those Who Click

Over the weekend, whilst my friend was over for our weight training session, she mentioned that she had bought a few dresses from Shein.  She will be going to South Africa at the end of March, hence the eager weight training sessions when it’s so cold I just want to stuff my face with biscuits and burgers.  So completely justifiably, …

Chasing Rainbows

I returned  from a glorious summer holiday in Cape Town on New Years Eve, just in time to join the rest of the UK for a cold, grey and glum January, waking up on the first day of 2018 with the obligatory hangover. The prospect of several months of frosty and grim weather stretching ahead of me.  It was my …

Sparkle and Shine

  Add a little sparkle to your Christmas with a sequin sweatshirt or jumper,  the smarter alternative to the enormously awful tradition of the Christmas jumper (yes, just call me the grumpy grinch).  I cannot think of anything worse than going to a Christmas party sporting a penguin or a snowman (or a fat bearded man with a bulbous nose …
