Channel Kate’s Style in Autumn 2015

If you want to pick up some classic pieces that will serve you well year after year, then you should look no further for inspiration than the wardrobe of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge. If you follow me you know I’m a big fan, and I love picking up pieces the duchess has worn, because I know that they’re always great quality and will last for seasons.

With that in mind, I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite items that Kate has been seen in, that are still available now. Each one of these has been tried and tested by me, and I’ve worn them time and again!

Friday Lust List: The Bubble – World’s Smallest Bottle of Sparkling Wine

As a rule, I’m not a huge wine drinker. In fact, I’d go so far as to say, I don’t really drink wine at all, unless it’s fizzy and celebrating something fun. However, I couldn’t help but lust after this beauty of a bottle now available at Selfridge’s: the world’s smallest bottle of wine!

414-3003119-BUBS005_MWhat an utterly charming little gift – if Santa popped one of these in my stocking, I certainly wouldn’t complain!

Gray’s and Feather The Bubble, now available at for £12.

Best Festive Sweaters: Christmas Jumper Round-up 2015!

I’m not going to lie. From November until January, I wear as many Christmas jumpers as I possibly can. December is obviously reserved for the most Christmassy of my collection, but there’s nothing wrong with wearing a nice Fair Isle inspired sweater, or a cute reindeer print in the dark days of January (and beyond…?)

With that in mind, I’ve scoured some of my favourite retailers to bring you my best of the festive selection!

The Best Christmas Jumpers

Here’s where to get your hands on these beauties, starting from the top left, then moving left to right, row by row:

Which is your favourite? I have to say, it’s hard for me to pick, but the Joules navy stripe with stag print might just be my favourite – I’ve purchase one, and it’s so soft I don’t want to take it off! And, as a bonus, the stag head is knitted with gold sparkly wool, too! Heaven!

Let’s play Halloween dress-up: high/low fashion picks

October is my favourite month of the year – the start of autumn, time for cosy coats, toffee apples, crunchy leaves, Halloween, and, of course, my birthday! This year, I’ve been looking at loads of cool items on the market for celebrating Halloween (as it’s on a Saturday again, whoooooo). I found two gorgeous pairs of spider-inspired shoes – can you guess which ones cost £575 and which cost £45?

Get Creative With Joules: Design Your Own Wellies!

The fabulously quirky and playful British company Joules has launched a new competition where you can design your own wellies! If you don’t know already, Joules do some fantastic wellies in some really cool and cute designs – I absolutely love these ones in dog print!

Or these gorgeous ones with a fabulous bow at the back!

Joules are so creative with their Wellington designs – and now they’re inviting you to do the same thing! All you have to do is pop to their competition page at and submit your design. The prizes are incredible – you’ll win a luxury break worth £5000 (with three nights in a golden oak treehouse cabin!), or a £250 gift voucher for Joules for 10 runners up. Your winning design will be on sale as a limited edition item at Even better, all proceeds from the sale of the winning welly will be donated to charity partners via CHARITABLY JOULES!

What do you think? Are you going to enter? I love the idea of sending in a cool print – they do them so well!

Bike Basket Beauties

I love my gorgeous Trek Allant bicycle, but I’ve never been really happy with the basket. I purchased it at the same time as the bike, and the black metal basket was the only one they had in stock. It’s served me well for a few years, but I always wanted a wicker one, to fit in with the look of the bike!
