If like us you’ve decided it’s time to pop on those Winter boots, then check out this week’s blog spot from the lovely Laura at Heroine in Heels.
It’s fair to say that most of us spend more time in our work clothes than we do our good old comfy casual’s, so the weekend’s are a great time to shake up your style and ditch those skyscraper heels and pencil skirt. Continue reading
What makes Christmas special for you? Is it the look on your children’s faces as they open their gifts? Perhaps it is spending time with relatives that you do not often get to see, or maybe it is indulging in your favourite treats.
Likely, a magical Christmas is a combination of things such as memories from childhood and new traditions that work together to create special family moments.
Of course, while Christmas is a magical time, full of wonder and celebration, it can also be the source of a huge amount of stress and frenzied shopping! With everything from the in-laws to broken toys to contend with, Christmas certainly throws up a few challenges.
So, this year, why not follow our guide to making this your best Christmas yet…. Continue reading
In many ways, dressing for Autumn and Winter is much easier than for Summer, in are the woolly tights and jumpers and out is the fake tan and the need to shave your legs! Hurrah!

Kizzy and I went on a lovely girlie shopping trip last weekend. We were excited to go to Shoe Zone with a £30 voucher to spend on some new shoes. The store had lots of styles on display including a huge range of boots for the Autumn. I decided that a pair of ankle boots was exactly what I needed to see me through the colder months and I was really impressed by the choice and the prices!

As we stepped into the studio, arms laden with Christmas decorations, slippers and boots, the first request naturally had to be ‘can we have Christmas music on?’ If we were going to shoot Christmas publicity in August, we needed to set the mood!
With ‘Fairytale of New York’ playing in the background, we started our mission of set building, fabric draping, prop placing and most importantly shoe positioning. Things were taking shape nicely, but we were far from a finished shot at this point. We couldn’t put it off any longer as we pulled out the dreaded prop – a gingerbread garland! ‘Dreaded’ I hear you cry, how can a gingerbread garland be so bad? Well, suspending a fragile string of fabric men and love hearts between two metal poles and taping it into position with very attractive gaffer tape is the easy bit. Getting it into focus and in the shot successfully was quite another.
