Festive Fashion On A Budget

AD | Collaborative post Over the Christmas period there are so many opportunities to wear some festive clothing. Whether you have the work Christmas party to attend or maybe you’re going out for lunch with friends but whatever the occasion, there is always a reason to buy something new to wear. The cost of this can really add up though and no one wants to spend a fortune on top of the presents they need to buy. So, today I’m sharing some tips on how to do festive fashion on a budget. Party clothes December is the time when work

Unisex Sunglasses From Zippo

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

David Charles Spring/ Summer 19 Dress Review

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

A Winter Wardrobe Boost From Fashion World

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

The Diary of a Shoe Lover

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   Way back when I was 18 I worked for what was a very well-known shoe shop. Unfortunately, I think the company went into administration years ago and now there aren’t any shops left. At the time I couldn’t have asked for a better job, especially as it was where I went straight after working at McDonald’s. Working in a shoe shop meant being able to take advantage of certain things like staff discount. As we were required to wear shoes sold at the shop for work we got 50%

Revamping My Autumn Wardrobe With Simply Be

Usually in Autumn I end up stuck in a bit of a rut when it comes to clothes. It’s easy enough to stick on a pair of jeans and an old jumper but I’m trying to make a bit more of an effort with what I wear on a day to day basis. It was absolutely effortless to fall into a slump of wearing clothes that are neither flattering or even nice really and I’ve been feeling like the woman who can’t be bothered to make an effort recently. With that in mind, I have teamed up with Simply Be

Updating My Shoe Collection With XY London

Spring is finally here. Well, it is if you can ignore that fact that it’s been raining nearly non-stop for the best part of the week. It’s time to put away the big jumpers and other winter clothes and look forward to a spring wardrobe and maybe some updates! However, updating your wardrobe doesn’t have to mean only buying new clothes though. XY London is a great place to start if you’re looking for new shoes and bags. Sandals are the obvious choice now that it’s spring and I love these Frankie Sliders in black (£19.99) I don’t tend to

boohooMAN Big & Tall Review

When it comes to clothes, John tends to get the bad end of the deal. He tends to only really get things when he desperately needs them and not because it would be nice to have some extras/ something that he likes. With him being 6″1 we find that a lot of clothes don’t fit him very well. T-shirts end up too short and show off his stomach or the sizes are just misleading. We were recently introduced to boohooMAN’s brand new Big & Tall range and it sounded perfect for John. We couldn’t wait to check out what they had
