Item of the day: Skirt with musical notes from Chic Wish

I spotted this beautiful musical notes skirt from Chic Wish on Briar Rose's blog t'other day and instantly fell in love with it.

It's gone on the ol' Christmas list as it's £31.20 - maternity payments don't stretch… Continue reading Item of the day: Skirt with musical notes from Chic Wish

Item of the day: Totoro onesie from Amazon

I really hope Jenson grows up loving the Ghibli movies. I see my friend Heather's Facebook updates about her son requesting to watch the films and I hope Jenson has a similar appreciation. I think he'd look proper cute in this Totoro onesie from Amazon - it's a bargain £6.00 and has just been added… Continue reading Item of the day: Totoro onesie from Amazon

Lace skirt, was £45.00, now £10.00 Storage boxes, was £14.00, now £5.00… Continue reading Best of the Oliver Bonas sale

Here's what I'm currently lusting after... Bird tapestry skirt, was £45.00, now £22.50 Dotty doll trench, £85.00… Continue reading Wardrobe wishlist: Yumi

The best of the Yumi sale

I love Yumi! The last couple of times I've been in St Ives I've walked straight past the store - there's no point looking at pretty fitted dresses I can't fit in, right? But the sale! Oh my gosh, it's totally worth getting some of those and holding onto them for the best part of… Continue reading The best of the Yumi sale

One of the best things about Christmas is the post-Christmas sales - just try and ignore the fact that the gifts you bought are now half price! I've been checking out the whole internet (well, almost) so you don't have to. Here are some of my highlights: Happy jumper, Oliver Bonas, was £45.00, now £30.00… Continue reading Best of the sales

Item of the day: Quotes skirt by BOB

I love Dawn O'Porter's Jane skirts. My faves are the quotes skirt, which includes quotes from Jane Eyre, and the Paper Planes skirt, based on Flo and Renee's first outing. It's a shame about the £180 price tags.
