I’ve been testing out some brand new technology from The North Face over the last couple of weeks. This is the Thermoball Hoodie Jacket – a light weight insulated jacket designed to keep you toasty warm whatever you are up to. I won’t lie. When this jacket arrived and I took it out of the
I joined the OnePiece Brigade If you’ve been following me on twitter recently (and if not, why not?! Get yourself following @Splodz right away!), then you will know that I have given into one of today’s trends that absolutely divides the nation. That’s right, I now own a onesie. Not just any onesie I might
The North Face Durango Hoodie is a this-season soft shell outerwear jacket that offers some warmth and protection from rain, ideal for those in-between days when it’s not cold enough to need a hugely insulated coat but when you do still want to get moving. I received this particular one from Snow+Rock to try out.
I had a big wish list type post in my head for today’s #BEDN topic – I was going to do a “luxury gift ideas” mood board that included all sorts of expensive I-can-dream kind of items. I started by searching for images of my chosen items… first up, an iconic pair of Christian Louboutin
Today I have one simple question for you. To Christmas Jumper or not Christmas Jumper?

I’m clumsy. And messy. There aren’t many ladylike bones in my body. And so when it comes to my clothes, they generally get dirty very quickly. Especially the light coloured ones. I’m talking spaghetti bolognaise splatters, pen marks, tea splashes, you know the sort of thing. Obviously I get these things on my clothes when
In my family I am the shoes girl and my sister is the bags girl. I do have a selection of bags to choose from, but I have always gone for functional and even utilitarian over pretty and girly. This Kipling Alvar Shoulder Bag seemed the ideal choice when Bagable asked me to choose something

I often wonder if I’m getting too old for New Look, but each time I step inside the Lincoln store I spot tops, jumpers, dresses and (especially) shoes that I love. So hey, I guess I’m still young! I spotted these new ankle boots the other day and decided I needed them, as often happens
I have never been a girly girl. I don’t remember ever doing the pink thing. My mum can probably confirm or un-confirm this, but I’m sure that I have always much preferred green or blue or brown or black to pink, and have always preferred getting out and about than painting my nails or wearing
You put on a coat you’ve not worn for a while. Slip your hand in the pocket. Unexpectedly find a folded up £20 note. Oooo yay! Let’s face it, there is very little chance that I would ever find a forgotten £20 anywhere. A couple of quid maybe, but not £20. I might, however, gain
