The little pink dress, every woman should have one. Okay, maybe not every woman but every woman who loves pink. Right, so perhaps that was a dumb statement. Most women who love pink have tonnes of the stuff in their wardrobe, right?! But considering how much I love pink (and you can probably tell from the pink overload on the lips, nails, dress AND scarf but hey… I can wear what I like), I don’t actually own that much of it. Not… Read more »

I love denim, leather and lace, especially when combined into one outfit. So today’s look is most definitely a favourite of mine. I’ve had this black lace skater dress a few years now and it always comes out during the winter months. It looks so cute with thick black tights (or coloured ones) and black boots. I bought these leather Carvela Kurt Geiger boots last winter and I adore them. I’ve been so looking forward for the weather to cool down just… Read more »

This is the perfect location for a photo shoot. I’ve had my eye on it for years (basically I want to buy it and build a beautiful house there!). It’s just around the corner from where I live so I just knew I had to check it out… there’s an old ruin, with fabulous pillars, ‘twisted’ bricks, some really cool and creepy roots crawling all over the place and an old swimming pool (you’ll definitely see more of it in future posts). Hubby and I… Read more »

One of my absolute favourite looks is a simple white tee paired with jeans, a leather jacket, heels and a statement necklace. It’s such an easy outfit and a fabulous look every woman can wear. Replace the heels for converse and change up the necklace and you’ve got a great day time look too. I just love the simplicity of it! I bought this jacket from Massimo Dutti last winter – it’s actually got a luxurious detachable fur collar which I don’t often wear because… Read more »

I love adding sparkle to an outfit – whether it’s super sparkly jewellery, a sparkly handbag, a scarf or sparkly shoes, it often adds a bit of fun (or drama) to whatever I’m wearing. Sparkly shoes are something I’ve always adored. My dream shoes would definitely be Dorothy’s ruby slippers – I’ve been looking for some for years but still haven’t found the right pair. Hopefully you’ll see me wearing some on the blog soon 🙂 For now though, I’ll make do with my… Read more »

Last week I bought this gorgeous knit cardigan for a snip at Bershka. When I saw it was on offer for just €13.99, I quickly tried it on and fell in love with it (I have a tendency to do that). But when I got to the checkout, it went through the till for €19.99. I pointed out the mistake and was told it had been wrongly priced and should, in fact, be €19.99. The original price was €29.99 and had a… Read more »

I’ve been planning a new hairstyle for a while – to coincide with my upcoming 40th birthday in December – and so decided to go ahead and do it early. Initially, I had planned to shave one side of the head (and undercut?) but then, after giving it some serious thought, decided against that and instead opted for an ombre look. I had intended to dye the ends blue but after many hours in the chair, ended up with this… Read more »

At 56-years-old, former fashion model Pia Cross still turns heads. If she’s not wearing make-up, Pia will simply don a fabulous pair of sunglasses, add a slick of lipstick and head out. “My hair is very important though and I do like it short but if it’s not right, I don’t feel 100%,” she says, adding that she’s particularly happy with her hair stylist, Luda from Victor Picardo in Praia do Carvoeiro, a small town in the Algarve, where Pia lives with her… Read more »

I’m still on the look out for a waterproof / water repellant winter coat so I thought today I would check out what H&M has to offer. I must say I’m a bit disappointed not to have found exactly what I’m looking for this time around. There are some really lovely coats for general wear here though – worthy of further investigation, for sure. Last week I tried Massimo Dutti but didn’t quite find it. So what next? A friend… Read more »

I used to visit thrift shops quite often with one of my best friends before she moved back to England. Lately though, not so much. It’s just not the same without her. She always seems to find real gems – like the most beautiful Rebecca Minkov dress that now hangs proudly in her wardrobe. She often emails me whenever she’s found something amazing in the same type of shops back in the UK (they are much better there than here) and I’m always… Read more »
