ENGLISH SUMMER RAIN

“Always stays the same, nothing ever changes, English summer rain, seems to last for ages.” English Summer Rain, Placebo We’re tricked into the illusion of an English summer when the calendar reads July and we awaken to find rooms bathed in sunlight. Inevitably though, the dark clouds roll in and our illusions are shattered. Torrential rain, roads flooding. […] Read more…

THE POWER OF SAYING YES at MOTTRAM HALL

THE POWER OF SAYING YES at MOTTRAM HALL As a blogger, different offers and opportunities will occasionally land in my inbox- usually during the day when I’m hurrying between appointments. Being honest, I decline most event invitations (when I’m lucky enough to receive them) because they’re usually in London, with short notice or aren’t relevant to the fashion and lifestyle […] Read more…

FOR THE LOVE OF THRIFT

As I write this post, I’m taking refuge from the rain which is hammering against my window against a thundery soundtrack.

MONOCHROME BRIGHTS :: REMIXING AN OLD FAVOURITE First blossom, now rapeseed; are you tired of these spring cliches yet? I’m sure many spring seasons have passed that have been equally as scenic and picturesque, but I’ve yet to recall them.

HOW TO MAKE A SLOGAN STRAW HAT

HOW TO MAKE A SLOGAN STRAW HAT If, like me, you love whimsical fashion then a slogan straw hat must be one of your summer fashion staples. Recently, I considered buying an £18 straw hat stitched with the slogan, ‘I’m Busy’. It quickly sold out. Disappointed, I decided to make my own when I found this […] Read more…

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

If you’re as old as me, you’ll remember neighbourhood watch- a scheme that saw neighbours hold regular meetings and work in partnership with the police to make communities safer. The scheme is still going today, but it’s not what I’m referring to in my blog title. No, I’m talking about how it always catches me […] Read more…
