Pre Holiday Excitement

    Hi everyone,   It’s been an age since I blogged and I can but humbly apologise, I’m sure you were all distraught…no? oh. Never mind then.   Last weekend was my birthday and it was wonderful, it reminded me that I have lots of things to be incredibly grateful for in my life right now.

I've loved clothes for as long as I can remember, I've embraced all the clichéd phases of my childhood, the pink and girly dresses stage, the wonderful 90's trend for huge boots, shorts and floppy velvet hats, and a particularly unstylish Goth period. Now I sit comfortably somewhere between all of these incarnations and try not to look too messy when my Nan visits. It's a happy medium.    One thing I will always get stuck on though is looking at a new collection in a completely seasonally inappropriate month; we're always buying six months ahead and waiting eagerly for new...
