Spring Trends in the Spotlight

The sun is here! The weather is warmer and the rain, for now, has gone. This means one thing – a new bright sparkly Spring wardrobe.  Here we take a look at one of the big trends for Spring.

Predicted to be the trend with the most impact this season, pastels are back and we are so pleased. Everyone will have a pastel hue to suit, and with so many garments readily available in this color spectrum, we can all rock this ice cream tinged dream.

Here is my top choice of pastel pieces…….

Happy New Year


Happy NY to you.

Apologies for not being in touch, the festive season was busy and wonderfully fun, and the first week of January has just been too chocolate, alcohol and festivity free for my liking.

How are you all coping? Are you rebooting, rethinking your life and reducing your sugar levels, or are you one of the wise ones that is drowning your January blues with more food and fine wine?

I am not wise, and have taken the stance of abstinence as my new year mantra. Although I am reading a lot more about how this is the worst time to detox. A post Christmas crash course, combined with the colder weather and darker nights, and empty bank balance, is a combination for instant failure.

A spring clean is what is adviced, whilst the sun is shining, the days are longer and the flowers are starting to make an appearance. It makes total sense.

Oh well, I have started so I should finish.

Thankfully the sales are still on and it is pre-Oscar season at the cinema. So lots to curl up and watch, just avoid the food counter at all costs…….

It’s beginning to look…..

a lot like Christmas, New Year, annual leave and the time of year when we can eat, chill, drink, chill, watch rubbish tv, chill…… you get what I mean.

Are you all ready? Have you all decently embarrassed yourselves at the office party? Drank baileys and eaten chocolate for breakfast with your latte? Yes? well, then you are ready.

I am – finally! Ready to cook, eat, celebrate and hit the sales.

Don’t forget if you need to make some room in your closet for the new clothes and sales items – then have a little sale of your own on ClosetBox.

Merry Christmas!
