Oh, the doors that a curious soul can open..

This is a day that I will never forget. After a night of dancing, celebration, fairy-lights and magic we jumped on a plane and headed for Bali…sleepy eyed, but more in love than ever before. Many confess to be in a somewhat oblivion right through honeymoon, and we were no different. Our 2 weeks unfolded…

How to survive your next clothes shop

So on Thursday last week, I went shopping. And lo-and-behold, if this delightful idea didn’t turn into a self-sabotage session. Well, at least it did for the first 5 minutes of entering the changing room. After which, I gave myself a stern talking to. And things got better. It’s amazing how we know exactly what…
