White Summer Dress

June 30, 2017

I love hunting down bargains in charity shops – it is a great way to shop since you’re upcycling, saving money and supporting a good cause in the meantime.  This white sundress was a mere £4 from a local charity shop, I know right.  I’ve seen a similar one on ASOS, this sun dress with lace inserts and pom pom detail for just £12.50 in the sale. Sassie is wearing a …

Review: BKids New Sensory Toys from 6m+

June 20, 2017

BKids have introduced a range of sensory toys that Sassie had the pleasure of exploring recently.  We tried out* Leon the chameleon light, rrp £19.99 (9m+), the shape sorter sensory discovery robot, £14.99 (6m+) and senso snap pals, £9.99 (6m+). I am keen to introduce anything that develops her curiosity, imagination and coordination…and her sense of humour which these toys definitely did.  Play is an important part of any child’s …

1 Shirt Worn 5 Ways: GANT Diamond G The Pinpoint Oxford Shirt

April 21, 2017

I love a button down shirt but I never used to.  I used to think I couldn’t wear them due to my large bust – no one needs to see a gaping peephole to my cleavage and shirts are not supposed to do that.  It is only with age (and thus experience of wearing clothes, getting wrong then finally getting it right), that I’ve come to realise the shirt is …

Review: English’s of Brighton Restaurant & Oyster Bar

April 4, 2017

When you get invited* to review a venue that has been serving seafood for over 150 years, with clientele having included Charlie Chaplin and Judy Dench, you are in the very least, intrigued right?  Excited even. I’ve been a fan of English’s of Brighton since I moved to the city over five years ago and always saw it as a more formal, elegant affair, ‘that’s where we go when we …

Review: Body Fuel Cafe, Hove

January 31, 2017

I’m always searching for healthy food to eat while out or on the go but I really struggle in England.  Are you catching a train and in a hurry?  There is a huge amount of pastries and baguettes on offer and very little fresh, healthy choices.  Do you want a nutritionally balanced lunch in your break at work?  Perhaps you’re catching up with friends or taking the family out, and …
