AD | Collaborative post It can be so easy to get carried away in stores or online when it comes to buying clothes! Unfortunately, this tends to only lead to having loads of items to return once you come to your senses and discover they were not quite what you wanted. That is why it is a much more sensible idea to opt for a few key pieces of quality instead. You can even read about the most essential items that every lady should have in her wardrobe below.

You might have heard several reasons for the maxi dress being the stalwart of plus-sized styling, but what makes a maxi dress, a maxi dress? The simple explanation is this: if a mini dress is really short, a maxi dress is really long!

AD | Gifted This year we have a few different trips away booked and a few of them are to places with swimming pools. We have a trip to Center Parcs next week, Haven the week after and then another Haven trip and Butlins later on in the year. When we go to these kinds of places swimming is one of Erin’s favourite activities and she tends to want to go at least once a day. I do already have a fantastic swimsuit from UK Swimwear that I got a couple of years ago and while it’s still going strong,

A lot of shops don’t stock the size I need and traipsing around for hours trying to find something just isn’t fun. The options either seem to be really boring or for people a lot older than me.

AD | Gifted Summer might have come to an end but there are some things I’m not willing to give up just yet. One of those things are my sunglasses! There are still some days where it’s quite warm and the sun gets really bright, especially when I’m walking across the park on the way to taking Erin to and from nursery. I hate having to squint so I always have a pair of sunglasses in my bag or in the pocket of the pushchair. John and I both needed new sunglasses this year and we found some wonderful designs
AD | Gifted item Over the past year or so Erin has really gotten into wearing dresses more. I really didn’t put her in them too often as a baby because for her, they just weren’t practical. Being strapped in to the pushchair meant that the dress only got in the way so it was easier to not buy any. Last summer though when we were potty training Erin we put her in dresses a lot for ease and she absolutely loved wearing them. Now, getting a new dress really puts a smile on Erin’s face so when we were
AD – This post is in collaboration with Fashion World. All opinions are our own. Over the past few weeks the weather has really changed and it’s been freezing lately. Some parts of the country even had some snow although I’m very glad that we didn’t get any here in North Norfolk. If last year is anything to go by, we could be looking at worse weather still to come and this time I want to be prepared! Fashion World recently asked me to put together an outfit and I was quite excited about the challenge. When I was thinking about
