• New must-have arm candy (and it’s a bargain!)

    Fancy some new arm candy? You can’t add Ryan Gosling to your basket, but you can get your mitts on this brilliant tote that comes with a clutch and a purse – taking you daytime to playtime…

  • Your SS17 style: SORTED

    With London Fashion Week giving a serious nod to all things hyper-feminine I’ve asked Sarah Gillmore one of my fave local stylists for her top tips on realistic and practical ways we can work the SS17 obsession with big sleeves, florals and ruffles into our wardrobe. Luckily, Sarah says, there’s lots of ways we can […]

  • School run chic

    These supercool luxe trainers by Rose Rankin are top of my SS17 wish list. I want a pair so baaaaad as I pretty much live in jeans and pumps from the first sighting of a spring snowdrop…

  • Muddy SOS:

    Whether it’s a Christmas or New Year party you’re going to, it’s the time of year that accentuates all those gaps in your winter wardrobe, right? And I for one, recently had a realisation – somewhere between running around after the Mudlets, work and Christmas shopping for the entire family I had completely lost my style mojo. […]

  • Alternative Christmas ideas you’ll love…

    So, did you watch the grand finale? No, not X Factor – the last episode of Planet Earth 2 – of course! Sir David Attenborough delivered a stunning, unforgettable and emotionally charged swan song to the series. (If you missed it, you can watch it here.) Anyway it made me think that this year’s Christmas Gift […]

  • Wouldn’t You Though?

    Shall we mention the C-word? Relax, my little elves, I mean cashmere. This supersoft jumper, by Wyse London, is available at the-bias-cut.com, a UK online boutique committed to the concept of ageless fashion…

  • Wouldn’t You Though?

    Old fire hoses are being turned into pretty bags and belts by a Kent-based couple and they are the coolest must-have accessory – even Cameron Diaz is a fan…

  • Heart-warming goodies for your home

    The Danish concept of hygge is quickly spreading its warmth across the world. From slipping your feet into warm slippers to snuggling up on the sofa in a candle-lit living room – add these things to your home and create that cosy feeling that, up until now, we’ve never really had a name for… And here’s […]


    It feels like forever since I’ve been excited about a fashion brand, so it feels good to have a little sashay down Designer Avenue with Winser London. Hero Brown, the Muddy founder and editor over in Bucks/Oxon put me onto this brand and even though it’s only been around since 2013, primarily as an online-based brand, […]

  • Try this: Style Clinic (the best £10 I’ve spent in ages…)

    Like you, I know how I should shop. I should be ruthless, organised, minimal. I should seek out those crucial ‘key items’ for ‘building my wardrobe of wearable classics’. But do I do it? By T.K.Max, I don’t! ‘Capsule’ pieces? *Insert snort of laughter here* – ‘chaotic’ and ‘confused’ more like. A ‘5-piece French wardrobe’? *Snorts […]
