It’s Mr SY’s birthday today. He’s very ok that he shares this day with International Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you) but Monday is pretty much a dud day on which to celebrate another year on this planet, which is why we turned the whole weekend into a festival instead. On Saturday

How to pack a hat for travel

Being sun-safe is important to me. I always wear sunscreen, I love my sunglasses wardrobe, I seek out shade, if I know I’ll be out in the sun for extended periods of time I try to wear clothes that shield me from the sun AND you’ll find me wearing a hat. That’s why I’m a

The Model and Me: That Bird Label

FEATURED The Model and Me That Bird Label AW15 Birdsnest

I loved sharing my love of the TV wardrobe as worn by Claire Underwood. It was interesting in the comments how many others loved Claire’s style too … but, like me, don’t have much occasion for embracing it. My office is at home. I only maintain a small part of my wardrobe for occasions that

YOUR casual wardrobe might be confined to the weekends and holiday but mine is an (almost) everyday affair. This means I’m always on the lookout for key smart-casual pieces that are comfortable enough for working at home but also look the business should I have to step out of the house on mum duties or

FEATURED How to update your wardrobe for winter 2015

I’ve been out twice this week. On school nights. In the name of fashion research. I know, I know. It’s a tough job … The biggest thing I took away from my research in terms of how to update your wardrobe for winter is that the update can be as simple as adding key show-pony pieces in

Sponsored by FRANKiE4 Footwear I remember the first time my feet slipped into a pair of FRANKiE4 Footwear shoes. It was very much a happy dance moment. A COMFORTABLE happy dance moment. Like any woman with half an eye on fashion trends, up until that point I’d pretty much sacrificed any foot comfort for a
