Jigsaw AW16

Jigsaw AW16Don’t get me wrong I love summer! White jeans, sandals and a good pair of sunglasses to break me out of the style rut that is winter (goodbye black skinnies), yet after viewing the Jigsaw Autumn/Winter 16 collection all I want to do is throw on a nice big overcoat and enshroud myself in a buttery soft oatmeal knit!

Pushing Perennial Boundaries

Mothers Day BloomsMiranda Priestly may not have thought that spring florals were particularly ground breaking, however the creative set on the London flower scene are pushing the perennial boundaries to create arrangements that are notably exquisite. With florals quite literally breaking out of their vases and popping up everywhere including the spring/summer shows (400,000 delphiniums encasing the Dior show anyone?!) flowers are once again at the forefront of fashion; and what better time to get educated about these botanic beauties than just before Mothers Day, she deserves the best after all..

The New White

The New Whites

What better way to cleanse your winter wardrobe and redefine your style for spring, than to take a break from harsh colours and busy prints and take it back to the basics with the purest of colours – white. Wearing white anytime other than summer seems to strike fear at the core of most people, maybe it’s the idea that the only way to keep it clean, is to basically stay inside, however I’ve always loved to wear pale colours in the colder months as it’s a time when everyone else sinks into shades of black. Here’s how I style top-to-toe white.. Continue reading

Winter Skin Saviours

Winter Skin SavioursHaving a reliable skin care routine year round is as rare as an empty Saturday in Selfridges, which pretty much means it’s not a thing. However it gets to this time of year and your skin begins to starve for moisture, the light gel that you used throughout the winter is about as useful as the frosty air and your skin desires nothing than to be bathed in rich (and expensive) creams 24 hours a day, hardly ideal.

In my last post I wrote about the different ways you can help your skin, whether that being your change in products or simply using warm water for your face rather than scolding hot; little things that can make a big difference for your winter skin. Moving forward I’m going to look at some of my winter skin saviours – products that work for me and help to retain my skins moisture through the harshest conditions.

Renewing Winter Skin

Renewing Winter SkinLike most people I look forward to Christmas – what I don’t look forward to, is how my skin likes to take on the texture as a (distressed) leather bag, not ideal. The slightest mention of the cold and my skin becomes dry and unmanageable and my skincare regime has to be altered to accommodate for the inclement weather that will no doubt linger until June. Here’s some things that I change or incorporate into my routine at this time of year to keep my skin in top condition. Continue reading

How to Shop the January Sales

How to Shop the January SalesWhether you like it or not, the time will soon come when the January sales will hit you harder, than the woman that actually tried to hit you at last years January sales (you needed those gloves more than her) and you’ll have to face the horror of searching through the racks of clothes, to find even the slightest hint of a good bargain and then you get home and realise that you were blinded by the red ‘sale’ sign and it’s just…well…ugly. Here’s how to do it.. Continue reading
