A quick chat about a trip down memory lane and a small addition to my wardrobe; seems about right for this time of the year.
My school uniform was Black Watch tartan accessorised with a white blouse and opaque black tights in winter.
Actually it wasn’t all bad and especially back in those days when the legs were for showing and we hiked the skirt up as high as we could get away with.
What she wants when she can have anything she wants.
Lovely thought, don’t you think?
We have put together three gift guides for the holidays with no thought other than gifts we would absolutely adore.

Yes, a week staying at Le Petit Bijou in gorgeous Saint Rémy de Provence.
Saint Rémy is a beautiful Provencal village in the heart of Provence. Le Petit Bijou, our “little jewel box” is a small house situated in the centre of the town.
It is the perfect place to stay to explore the wonders of Provence and equally it is heaven to stop, relax and never leave the village.
There is one kind of statement I don’t ever, ever like hearing.
It is the, they-are-so-difficult-to buy-for or they-have-everything comment. Nonsense.
Everybody, even those who appear to have everything love being spoilt and cherish a gift as much as the next person.
A gift doesn’t have to be expensive, overly clever or even original; a gift has to be heartfelt.
A gift can be quirky, practical or even sublimely impractical but it does require thought and that is where the generosity kicks in.
The ‘generous’ part of giving is the thinking time not the price ticket.
Mistress of the workplace attire, she embodies the mastery of being both feminine and practical in the most elegant of ways.
As ‘The Fall’ returns to our televisions, so does Stella Gibson’s impeccable style.
Gillian Anderson’s personal fashion is not all that far apart from her on-screen ego, even down to that scrumptious blow dry.
