Huge thanks for stopping by, I'm very honoured to have your continued support.
We've had brilliant weather so far this week, I've been living in floaty dresses and skirts with some pretty sandals to match. With the second stint of birthdays just about done I'm starting to think about my holiday in June. Did I mention we are going away with all the kids, their partners AND their children! That makes 18 on a plane to Majorca to stay in an all inclusive hotel in Can Picafort (for those who want to avoid the area we go at the end of June). 😜
I'll be doing the usual and packing one pieces like dresses and jumpsuits, I just find that so much easier than taking separates where I end up wearing the wrong things together leaving an outfit totally unsuitable - have you ever done that? My daughter has now said that's what she will do, so I must have passed on some helpful tips somewhere along the line!
Now if you dropped by on Monday you'd have seen it was my birthday on Sunday, another year older and maybe a bit wiser. I wanted to have family and friends round and provide drinks and some food, and that's just what I did!
As I mentioned above the weather was nice on Sunday, not too warm, but warm enough to have an outside gathering. David cooked his usual amazing roast potatoes - in goose fat & I made two pates, one smoked salmon and the other my signature starter ... chicken liver pate. I also had crisps and some dips & a few sweets to keep the children happy. I received some wonderful gifts and felt well and truly spoiled especially after getting a cute orange bag and matching belt, some new trainers, a dress, jacket sandals, chocolates and lots of pretty flowers and lovely cards - it was a perfect day that I'd been waiting two years to happen, lock-down birthday's just weren't the same were they!
I've been lucky enough to review some pieces from Nomads Clothing over the past few weeks and found this white maxi will be a winner for Summer as there's so many different ways to style it! You can catch a reel I made for Instagram featuring some of the looks, and this one has to be one of my best looks!
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
I'm often drawn to a white dress for Summer, they just are the perfect match for dreamy hot days strolling the shops or taking a trip to the beach. Do stop by the link above to see all the different ways I've styled this classic beauty - there's plenty more options to try out so stay tuned my friends.
Cotton dresses* are a must for warmer days aren't they. This maxi is a brilliant example of cool dressing on hot days. It's a slip-over-the-head style with no buttons or fastenings to worry about. I like that it's full length too, making it a great cover-up for the beach.
Two generous pockets on each side of a gathered front detail giving the dress a nice relaxed feel. It's also lined - way to go Nomads Clothing - that's what us ladies want.
Available in a pretty shade of blue too and comes in sizes 8 - 20, but is selling fast so I would urge you to head on over and buy one to style your very own way. For a cool £74 this floaty piece is made inline with Nomads Ethical Trading Policy.
For a day at the beach (imaginary - I've been at home but you get the gist) I've picked these comfortable cork sandals - you can read all about these fabulous slips on's here. You all know I love to include my denim jacket whenever I can don't you, so it was the obvious choice wasn't it!
Some of the other pieces I picked that you've already seen are this striking jumpsuit and this boxy jumper worn over casual jeans topped off with a silky scarf.
Thought you might like to see me and my cake on my birthday last Sunday. My daughter baked this Porn Star Martini inspired cake just for me - didn't she do an amazing job! It really did taste as good as it looks and didn't last long with all my guests and me devouring it ... there's still a couple of pieces left but they are most definitely mine!!
