Three years ago I wrote my first blog post with little plan of where I was heading or any real idea of how to blog!! But here I am three years later, still blogging, still learning and most importantly still enjoying it.
So I thought for my anniversary post I'd share some facts about me you might not know:
I have been admiring camel coats forever! But I wanted a good quality one and they just always seemed to be out of my price range. In the end I threw caution to the wind, stopped buying other bits and pieces I didn't really need and treated myself to this Jaeger Boyfriend Coat in Camel and at £320 it was a huge investment purchase. But along with my Louis Vuitton handbag, my better jeans and my cashmere knitwear I felt it was worth it.
I adore pretty underwear, I remember my mum always insisting on matching sets and now I do the same to my daughter and she teases me for it! I am a matching set type of girl, never to be found without, well you never know who might see you!? So it was lovely to be given the opportunity to review a set from Playtex (gfited), all I remember about them was the 'cross your heart' bra campaign way back when. So I was really interested to see how they have updated their look and products.
I chose the Playtex Flower Lace Full Cup Wired Bra and matching Briefs in the Cinnamon colour - which is pretty close to the Pantone's Colour of the Year - Living Coral - and one of my favourite shades for Spring/Summer.
I'm a bit later than my blogger friends with this one but a couple of weeks ago I was invited to join Gail from Is This Mutton and Anne from Mutton Years Style and I for the Prêt-à-Portea Afternoon Tea at The Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. The afternoon tea is inspired by the world of fashion and the cakes are based on the latest looks from the catwalk. Ideal for a style blogger meet-up.
I made my way into London a bit earlier and indulged in a black cab from Marylebone to New Bond Street so I could spend some time in Victoria's Secret, then I browsed in & Other Stories and one or two other stores before grabbing another cab to the hotel.
It is a stunning hotel with a first class welcome and attentive service. We had a spacious and bright table looking out of the window and were given plenty of time to choose our blend of tea and then later we indulged in a bottle of champagne.
