Checking In With Tartan

Checking In With Tartan

I am checking in because I am sentimental.

Here’s how I got started. 
I am talking tartan.


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.

The “What She Wants” Gift Guide #1

The “What She Wants” Gift Guide #1


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.

They are girly, extravagant and luxurious.

They are for the woman who knows what she wants but might not necessarily treat herself. They are for the woman who feels like looking after herself and for the friends and family in her life who need a little clue or ten.

It is so easy to wear the same piece over and over, especially when it comes to trousers.

I do love my jeans and we are making up.

Never Too Many Pearls

Never Too Many Pearls

Can we ever have enough pearls?

I don’t think so and plenty of other far wiser women before me have thought the same thing.

These days I see so many fabulous small earrings; delicate everyday designs to work whether you have single or multiple ear piercings. 

Speaking of piercings, what do you think?

Personal Style: The Easy Don’ts

Personal Style: The Easy Don’ts

Finding personal style is an evolving business.

I don’t believe style is automatic or that it comes easily to everyone.

It doesn’t; personal style requires work. If it did we would all look impeccable every hour of the day?

Those who do are lucky and either have help in the way of personal stylists or know themselves extremely well.

I believe personal style evolves as we move through life and while some traits are in evidence from our early years I do think finding our own fashion comfort zone is down to many factors.
