So. It turns out that I’ve had a trip to New York booked since January this year! Unbeknownst to me. Though for good reason I might add. My wonderful amazing husband surprised me a few weeks ago on the morning of my 40th birthday, with tickets for a four night trip to New York, and a night on Broadway to see Wicked – The Musical, which is something I’ve wanted to see for years. To say I’m surprised and over the moon is a bit of an understatement to say the least. I keep saying to Mikey that I can’t… View Post

An edit of the key styles and trends to look out for this Spring Summer 2016. So, for the past two weeks I’ve unfortunately been in bed with the lurgy. Yep. Not good. But, on the plus side, I’ve been able to flick through a few magazines, do a spot of online browsing and of course, indulged in the odd spot of daytime TV! One particular website I’ve been utterly addicted to lately is Lyst. It’s fabulous. Think online shopping with a bit of a difference. Firstly – it is absolutely packed full of so very many designers and retailers. From… View Post

So – can you believe we’re at the end of October already with Christmas just around the corner! Now that the clocks have changed the days are shooter and darker, and not mention, the fact that sometimes it feels as though they’re getting a little wetter too! More often than not there are muddy puddles haphazardly dotted along the roads and pathways, and as sure as eggs are eggs, one glimpse of these and before you can say “stop” you’ve got a very soggy child moments later! We’ve all been there! But hey – they’re kids after all, and jumping in muddily puddles… View Post

Well, this is a bit of a Marmite post. But, love it or hate it, leopard print has been in and out of style through the seasons more than I’ve had hot dinners, and I’m afraid to say that a great many pieces have become permanent fixtures in my wardrobe. I suppose it’s been one of my vices or ‘closet loves’ for many years now. Yes, “My name is Steph, and I’m rather partial to leopard print!” (Or indeed any animal print as a matter of fact, but hey – that’s a whole different post!) Don’t get me wrong, I’m not constantly dressed up to the… View Post

I made a mistake this week. A BIG one!! I accidentally *ahem* clicked onto the Zara Kids website. And no sooner had the page uploaded, did my eyes begin to widen with sheer joy! Everything is amazing! I now want to spend my entire bank balance on their current A/W 15 kids collection! I adore the muted greys and soft blush pinks, which add a touch of warmth just in time for the cooler days and nights to kick in. I also really love the tiny detailing, the nod to animal print and fur trims and the super cute mini-slogans. Below… View Post
