The Oscar winners (and others) have had the time to catch up on their sleep and the rest of us had the chance to dissect and digest what everyone wore. These are the stand out looks for me. Who would have thought Pink had it in her to look so stunningly beautiful in what is for her a rather traditional evening gown? Continue reading
I’m trying to update my closet but sometimes only classics will do, no more no less. But first, here’s the chance to show some classic make up from Chanel; blush, powder and concealer all bought together here. I’m clueless with regards to make up and it was only with the help of great reviews for both the concealer and powder that I was able to make such good choices. The packaging is a joy to behold and use! Continue reading
We did a little exploring in one of the villages nearby during the recent holidays. This is one its churches. Continue reading
Not 50, only 3 shades of grey that I found irresistable this season, more specifically 2 more coats to add to the collection, first the grey leather Whistles jacket:
I really wanted to try out some different colour combinations and explored the blues and greens here: a favourite Gap Boys’ check cotton shirt and here, Gap 1969 purple cords, Sam Edelman black nubuck boots and the Kelly 28 in Bleu de Prusse in swift leather.
I tried so hard to resist this coat by Vince. In the end it was futile, the ultra simple lines, no shoulder pads and beautiful texture are a winning combination that works casually and more formally with my most classic dresses. It has pockets in the side seams – pity it’s not reversible but we can’t have everything can we? Zara Girl’s cream jumper, Gap 1969 bf jeans and D Copenhagen fleece lined wedge boots also here.

The foods we’ve been eating reflect this Winter weather. Steak casserole is one of our favourites and the recipe couldn’t be easier – I started making this when my son was a baby from a recipe in his little NCT baby cooking book and carried on ever since. Carrots, potatoes, onions, cubed lean casserole steak, seasoned plain flour, beef stock cubes made up with hot water. Continue reading
Showing a more true to the colour – than my last post – of Brique which is quite difficult to identify due to confusion with a similar colour. There’s an added complication of different types of leathers altering the colour again but this is the case for many Hermès colours. Also certain ‘classic’ colours such as a burgundy red, has a slightly different tone depending on when it was produced. Continue reading
The double rainbows were complete but we were too close to be able to capture them in full. This was during the rain storms we had. This is the brightest and clearest I’ve ever seen the colours! The beautiful intense blue sky afterwards.And today I finally shot the gorgeous little crocus in the garden. It just makes me so happy to see them!
Thanks for reading!
