Summer is…

Ceredigion coastal path

I'm in the middle of two weeks off from work - and I hear I may have dropped on a mini heatwave. My phone weather forecast is predicting the temperature here will hit a slightly scary 30°C during next week! We've already had a couple of days away camping in Wales, when we walked, watched dolphins from the harbour ...

Introducing: Object Style

Object Style look book

I first met Rachael Adams when she organised Home is in the North in Manchester. I made no secret of how much I enjoyed that event and approved of the friendly, interactive vibe and the brands chosen to be part of it. A few months ago, Rachael began to post on Twitter and Instagram under a new name. The things ...

Element Jewellery exhibition

Element Jewellery spring 2015 designer jewellery exhibition

My friends at Element Jewellery have been in touch to let me know about their designer jewellery exhibition, taking place on Saturday. This independent shop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, has an event like this every spring when they launch several new collections. Cool Brighton jewellers Alex Goodman and Nicky Morris - who make gemstone jewellery and contemporary ...

What I wore: a perfect jumpsuit

Warehouse black off-shoulder jumpsuit

I wore this perfect jumpsuit for a day out in Leeds with the girls on Saturday. I felt pretty great wearing it to be honest and it drew immediate compliments from my friends. I reckon you're onto a winner when someone says you're reminiscent of Sandy from Grease, am I right? (These girls are the best confidence boosters). // ...

What I wore: spring accessories

What I wore in Todmorden, West Yorkshire. Spring accessories with McArthur Glen. Blue jeans, leatherr biker jacket, baby pink leather Ted Baker bag, Osprey seventies paisley patterned scarf, grey T-shirt, lace-up flat shoes

A few days ago I was invited by McArthur Glen Designer Outlets to go along to their York outlet and pick out some key spring accessories. If you're not familiar, McArthur Glen is a brilliant invention for mere mortals like me who have a normal-sized budget. I can't justify splashing out hundreds of pounds on labelled gear but ...

Rad Studio, Saltaire

Rad Studio shop, Saltaire, West Yorkshire

Just before Christmas I went to a fab little workshop where I made these origami diamond decorations. The workshop was the first held at Rad Studio in Saltaire, West Yorkshire, and it was perfect - we learned a unique crafty project, beer and buns were served and it cost just £8. Also perfect is this shop's stock. ...

Lambert’s Yard, Leeds

New designer fashion at Lambert

A little while ago, before the juicing and yoga event in the same building, I took the opportunity to have a good look around Lambert's Yard. Interested by its ethos of supporting new designers, I'd been looking for a chance to go inside since its launch in November 2014. Housed in a collection of old buildings on ...

Renne Jewellery

Helen and Annie Rennison of Renne Jewellery

With Mother's Day on Sunday, what better time to share this story of a mum and daughter who recently launched their first jewellery collection. Helen and Annie Rennison have always shared a passion for design and creativity and Renné Jewellery was born in early 2014. They'd been unable to find UK stockists of the old, characterful jewellery they were ...

Spring summer 2015 fashion

Few of us have the funds to clear out our wardrobes every season and fill them up again following new fashion trends. And let's face it, we don't really want to. When the fashion weeks come round, I follow the runway looks with interest (and sometimes astonishment) to see the styles I might like to try a ...

What I got for Christmas

As you get older the things you want for Christmas can

I'm a pretty lucky girl. I know it. I struggle to think of things I want for Christmas. One explanation is because, well, this. Another is that I don't have particularly expensive tastes, and a decent income, so I tend to buy the things I want throughout the year. But I always look forward to opening my presents for ...
