I don't know about you but the mad scramble of Black Friday and Cyber Monday seems to have changed the face of Christmas shopping for me. So today I'm stepping up to higher ground and looking at chic Christmas gifts, the things that you would choose for a sister, a mother or that you might pop under a loved one's nose when they're asking what you'd like for yourself. They're items that people probably wouldn't generally indulge in and I've tried to [...]

Christmas Gifts for Teenagers – what to buy

By |2017-03-19T17:26:50+01:00November 22nd, 2016|Categories: Christmas|Tags: , , |

And we're off ... with probably the most important of my gift buying posts: Christmas Gifts for Teenagers. I've been surprised by the number of readers that have been in touch asking when this is coming but I completely understand. It's difficult bridging this gap between adult and child when Christmas still really matters and yet so much things are deemed uncool. So, I've worked hard on this one. Santa still comes to our house. My parents' rule was that if we [...]

Chic Christmas Jumpers 2016

By |2017-03-19T17:34:58+01:00November 18th, 2016|Categories: Christmas, Style|

Save The Children's Christmas Jumper Day has become a real institution in the UK and this year it's on Friday 16th December. It's good to have a festive jumper or two in your wardrobe to throw on if you're Christmas shopping or cooking or just popping out for drinks. Even if you're frazzled inside, you will at least look as though you're in the mood. I've scoured the high street for chic Christmas Jumpers - there are a lot of horrors about. "Sleigh [...]

Elegant dresses that are not just for Christmas

By |2017-03-19T17:38:06+01:00November 15th, 2016|Categories: Christmas, Style|Tags: , , , , |

It's all well and good having a Cinderella moment and turning up to a party in a sparkling gown wearing glass slippers but the reality is that most of us prefer to invest in a dress that will give us cost per wear. It's a wonderful thing to have a dress or two in your wardrobe that can cover all occasions. Women will always wear these dresses better than girls because they require a certain earned elegance to pull them [...]

It's been lovely to have had so many people asking when this relaxed Christmas Party Outfits post is coming. I thought I'd make it the first of the outfit posts that I'll be doing before we move into the excitement of gift ideas. Don't worry, they'll be ready in plenty of time for Black Friday. Before we start though, I want to recap on the trends for this Christmas. It can't have escaped you that velvet has taken over from [...]

Well hello everybody and happy November. There's no avoiding it any longer, we're on the Christmas countdown. I'm diving in head first with another party dressing feature (there will be a few). This time we're looking at what to wear for a formal party. So let me give you a bit of background. We've had a 'save the date' in our diary for a long time. A client who has become a friend is having a special celebration in a [...]

Jewellery by TheOver40Collective – what did we choose?

By |2019-08-09T17:02:20+01:00November 2nd, 2016|Categories: Accessories|Tags: , |

It's always a joy to join up with my friends from the Over40Collective. As you know, we sometimes work together to show how differently women over 40 can interpret the looks on offer from a single brand. This time we're working with The Eternal Collection who kindly got in touch to ask which piece of jewellery we would choose if we were picking a Christmas present for ourselves. I've already been busy, pulling lists together for other people so it [...]
