One of my best, and most everlasting memories of my youth is of hitting the town with my bestie, armed with a handbag stuffed with blue hair mascara, a Mini Disc Man and a Lancome Juicy Tube.  Does anyone remember this stuff?!  Anyway, now that we have grown up somewhat, and instead now get drunk at class drinks parties (or is that just me?), the Juicy Tube has also grown up, turned into a “Shaker”, and evolved into a most funky little specimen, that will now be a handbag friend for a while to come.

We love nothing more than this time of year.  Weddings; Summer parties; big birthday bashes; and holidays…. What more could a gal want from her summer?  Well, if you are asking that loaded question, we would love full time childcare and a daily blow-dry, but that would be asking too much!!  On the hunt for some dresses that would tick all the summer fun boxes, especially an upcoming 40th birthday party in Ibiza, we found these two sunny little numbers that are perfect for sundown Aperol Spritz drinking and drunken barefoot fun on the beach after that beach party.

Had we kept hold of all those bold, branded t shirts we loved to wear back in the 90’s, we are certain that we would now be back on trend with a very loud bump! However, the Naf Naf, Benetton and Jane Norman ( remember them?!) logos do not quite make the cut the second time around, and with logo t shirts back in the fashion spotlight, we have hunted down two of our favourites.

Our summer holiday had started so well. We got to the airport, one that can only loosely be described as being in London, on time ( 4:45 am), and got to security without any major drama or meltdown. To avoid meltdowns because of tired little legs, we decided to take the buggy and two scooters. Big mistake. We got as far as security where the two scooters were promptly confiscated. After many tears, we vowed that we would enter Dragons Den and impress Peter Jones with a flight compatible scooter. Clearly, someone beat us to it.

Who knew that French Connection had an older sister?!  We like to consider ourselves knowledgeable about brands and new trends, but had no idea that French Connection had any link to the classic Great Plains clothing brand.  Whilst good old FCUK is the trendy younger sister, Great Plains is the older sister- more classic and jam-packed full of awesome clothes…. pieces that will transcend any random fashion trend and be wearable for many years to come.  And all at high street prices!

Never one to shy away from bold prints or bright colours, and always in search of clothes that make me smile, I found my newest lemon love in H&M.  This dress has slowly and steadily been creeping into the bigger fashion blogger’s wardrobes on Instagram, so get to the shops sharpish before this little number sells out!

My personal ‘Pet Peeve’ No.1 – is with people who say “ooh, this?!  I just threw this on”, when I ask them about their clothes.  How on earth do you just throw something on?  Am I missing a trick here?  Isn’t that what we all want?  A wardrobe full of clothes we can just throw on, and look good in, without thinking too much?  Yes it is.

There are multi-tasking mamas, and then there are multi-tasking mamas with their names on our ballot boxes.  Louise Rountree is one of the latter.  A former lawyer and lobbyist, Louise is mum to three brilliant boys, and is now in the running to become an MP as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Chelsea and Fulham.  Not only a good friend but also an inspiration to us both, we caught up with this true super woman to pick her brains about politics, political parties, mummyhood and life.

I love nothing more than wearing something that gives me an amazing feel-good factor… and what better way to get this fix than with a humorous VB jumper with a dash of fab detailing.  I’ve always been a fan of Victoria Beckham, having been lucky enough to be the ‘fit model’ for her sought after clothing line for many years.  She is just lovely, and multi-talented to boot.  Her iconic Victoria Beckham collection is packed full of classic, beautifully tailored pieces and now her Victoria, Victoria Beckham range has come up with this awesome piece….  how can you not love this “Hot Lips” jumper?!

As much as I love hitting the fancy stores for some fancy make up, it is sometimes the high street stores that come up trumps in the make up department.  Sometimes, something as simple as finding that cheap lipstick that only costs £6.99 and makes me feel like a million dollars, can put me back on track after an exhausting morning where all three boys have moaned non stop since 5:30am.  Yes, I am looking at you, Max, Leo and Xander!  After discovering this little nude, high street lippie, hitting that local Superdrug in between a run to Sainsbury’s and the Post Office has never felt so good!
