Back to School

So before we know it and just when we feel like the school holidays has begun its almost time for the kids to get ready to head back to school.

And so begins the inevitable trips to the shops to get new school shoes and uniforms, but for the kids their favourite part has to be choosing new stationery and if they are lucky a new bag.

Mint and Molly has a lovely range of pretty notebooks, backpacks and tote bags.

Autumn Wish List

As much as I love summer I am thoroughly enjoying the fact that it is now officially Autumn. Time to get the winter clothes out, long sleeved tops, scarves, and boots.

I love the colours of Autumn, so this also requires changing my nail polish shades too. Plum is my go to shade at the moment, such a rich and warm colour.

Here are some picks of my favourite nail polishes in this shade:

Max Factor Intense Plum – £4.99 – Superdrug

Essie Bahama Mama – £7.99 – Boots

Barry M Plum – £3.99

And here is my wish list for this season, some staple items for my wardrobe are needed this year.

Autumn Collage

Fringe cardigan – Next, £38

Camilla check blanket scarf – Accessorize, £19

Green jeggings – H&M, £12.99

Semi precious stone necklace – Accessorize, £8

Suede ankle books – Marks & Spencer, £55

Shoulder bag – H&M, £12.99

I hope you feel inspired by some of my choices, lets embrace this slightly chillier weather and get out there in our Autumnal shades!

Pretty pastels

Now that spring is finally here its time to put away your winter warmers and get out the pretty pastel shades.

I often feel I should wear more colours but am not always brave enough to wear the bright ‘pops’ of colours you see featured in magazines, so an easy transition into making your wardrobe more than just blacks, greys and browns, why not try some pastels first to ease you in gently to the more colourful items of clothes. Here are some inspirational ideas for mixing and matching some beautiful spring pieces.
