Put a Sock In It!

Oct 11th, 2018 Fashion, Inspiration Kirstie 5 min read

Every time I go to put my summer clothes in the attic, the sun comes out and cosy clothes stay put. I am now looking forward to the colder climes so I can actually wear my heavier knits and cashmere jumpers…winter hurry up (controversial possibly!)

Good Enough to Eat

Nov 25th, 2017 Fashion, Inspiration, Kirstie Smillie Kirstie 3 min read

It’s cold outside and I instantly think of comfort food when I look at this picture from Me+Em, warm plum crumbles, chocolate and raspberry cake (my favourite combination) and sticky toffee apples.
