Watches: Timeless Accessories

I love watches. If I had more space, I’d have a drawer full of them. As it is, I’ve got four (two need new batteries) but unchecked and with unlimited money, I could quite easily expand the collection to hundreds. I’ve loved watches since I was a teenager, when the Swatch Watch trend was atContinue reading “Watches: Timeless Accessories”

Winter basics: Oversized jumpers

It’s been far too cold in the UK lately, so I’ve been hibernating in my house and living in my knitwear. I own a lot of jumpers. My current favourite and the one I default to when I’m at home working all day is this lovely grey one from H&M. I love oversized jumpers. NotContinue reading “Winter basics: Oversized jumpers”

Socks and mittens and hats, oh my

(Lovely photo by Jill111 on Pixabay) It’s not quite a winter wonderland of snow and ice just yet here in the UK, but cold weather is something that happens frequently, and tis the season to start wrapping up warm, especially if you’re an early bird who has to commute anywhere by public transport (or standContinue reading “Socks and mittens and hats, oh my”

Winter Is Here: Finding the perfect coat.

(Photo by Printeboek on Pixabay) Being a little on the thin side because of my Crohn’s Disease, I really feel the cold. I revel in big jumpers, fluffy socks and slipper boots at this time of year. Big Snuggly, my black and white fluffy jumper, had an outing this week, so it’s officially Cold. WhenContinue reading “Winter Is Here: Finding the perfect coat.”

The Importance of Fit

The more I read, and the more I speak to people, the more it seems that there is a lot of misunderstanding around the word ‘fit’ in relation to clothes. I asked a friend of mine what she thought was meant by the term ‘fit’ and after thinking for a while, she said ‘I guessContinue reading “The Importance of Fit”

The apocalypse is coming! What to pack when the zombies attack

(Stock image by simonwijers from Pixabay) It’s Halloween, I’m on holiday in a luxury hotel being waited on hand and foot, and this is a ridiculous post. The idea for this post actually came about after a conversation with some friends in the pub. After a (few) bottle(s) of wine, we ended up talking aboutContinue reading “The apocalypse is coming!

Why the right glasses are important for your style: advice for those with bad vision

I’ve worn glasses since I was in year 7 (first year of high school for you non-Brits), so I’ve had rubbish eyesight for most of my life. Way back in the 90’s, the frame options for glasses-wearers were limited (at least in my small town opticians), and you would probably end up wearing some awfulContinue reading “Why the right glasses are important for your style: advice for those with bad vision”

Five Reasons Knitwear Is King

The weather’s turned, and autumn is here. Hurrah! From my perspective, this is a great thing. I don’t really like the heat of summer very much, and I struggle to find clothes to wear in hot weather. When the weather starts to cool, and I can get my knitwear out again, I am filled withContinue reading “Five Reasons Knitwear Is King”

My Top Ten Wardrobe Must-Haves

We’ve all got those ‘go to’ pieces that are forever in our wardrobes, and when they wear out, we go and buy a new one that’s either exactly the same or at least similar. People often ask me what I have as my core collection in my wardrobe, so in the interests of science, I’veContinue reading “My Top Ten Wardrobe Must-Haves”

The Scary Stuff: How To Dress For An Interview

(As I’m a survivor of the corporate minefield, which includes dress codes, I am writing a series of articles about how to dress appropriately in a professional environment. I’m hoping to roll this series out to local schools and colleges to help the students as they get closer to getting their first job. It’s basicallyContinue reading “The Scary Stuff: How To Dress For An Interview”
