This apparently is the new trend on the beaches this year: The half G-string. We personally think its a step too far and may as well wear a sock! What are your thoughts? Hot or not?
Over the last eight months, life has been tough. I have been juggling a degree in Psychology, a part time job, my own yoga business and bringing up my three children single handed. Money has been tight and we decided to throw a puppy into the mix….oh my days. So….as my life was busy and stressful enough, I really did not need what was to happen next. My eldest child, a 15 year old boy, who, when everyone who meets him says he is sure going to be a heart breaker (I think he already is-as the gaggle of girls follow him around and he responds with his ‘can’t be arsed’ attitude) was run over by an elderly gentleman, and he suffered serious injuries. Two broken femurs to be exact. i found out by his friend calling me on my mobile, luckily…just as i had arrived home. What normally would take the likes of Linford Christie a good 5 minute sprint to where the accident had happened, it took me literally 3! There I was running like I had never done before down the road, dressed in a short red dress, and drivers beeping me as I ran past! For goodness sake….do you not know that my son has just been run over…that was my thoughts…in between ‘please god, please let him be ok, just let him be awake.’ Of course the drivers did not know that the lad laid in the middle of the road further down the street was my son. As I approached I saw a trainer further up the road from where everyone was crowding round. My heart jumped to my mouth and everything began to spin. ‘Please let him be alive….please just be awake..’ I kept repeating over and over in my mind. I approached his friend who was inconsolable. Luckily, my son was conscious…just. The ambulance seemed to take forever and my son was drifting in and out, trying to tell me he was going to sleep. I did all I could to keep him awake. I was not going to lose him no way. Although this was a stroke of bad luck (and we have had more since-but that’s another story) it was also a stroke of good luck…because he survived and eight months down the line he is almost back to normal….barr the metal rods in his legs…but he is getting there. HE IS ALIVE and that is all that matters. I came across this bracelet recently and it reminded me of what we as a family have been through these last 8 months…a serious accident, issues with the children’s father which has brought a lot of stress, anxiety problems, money problems, and finally only last week an accident at school involving once again my teenage boy who has now suffered a broken arm as a result! I can honestly say I have not had such a bad run of luck in such a short space of time. So when I saw the name of this bracelet….That’s a wrap-Get Lucky I thought, this is an omen, I have been brought to this for a reason.
THAT’S A WRAP…..that’s it….that is the end of this run of bad luck. GET LUCKY….With Pleasure! Buy the bracelet here at a modest cost of £3.50 can you afford not to…? 🙂 The bracelet is from a range of hand made jewellery by Kimberley Wilson, an entrepreneur who has been making jewellery as a hobby for a few years now, but has recently decided to make it her business, and we really do wish her all the luck, as the jewellery is something we personally really love. It has a contemporary boho chic kind of feel, something really wearable, and also something wish is just as great as a gift. Read other reviews of Kimberley’s Jewellery

In short…..no. Haha, even to see a man in those cycling ones kind of turn my stomach, no matter how fit the man is. There is just something not very manly about them and I really do like my men to be men. Sorry, it is just the way I am. However, if he wanted to buy a pair of these rainbow diamond ones (in my size) that is ok, as I would wear them. 😀
Just a quick word to the men: “Not cool. Do not do it…….sorry boys.”
Those of you still intent on doing it <sighs> you can get them here…….
I have always had a little soft spot for Desigual. I first fell in love with it when I found a fabulous dress in a boutique in Spain. It was quite expensive for me, but I decided to treat myself as it was something different. I have worn it lots and it washes so well as I still wear it now and have had it for over four years. I have definately had my monies worth so I just thought there were worth a little mention. They provide clothes for women, men and children. I personally absolutely love these pants!
Just a small selection of the girls clothes which can be found on the Desigual website. You can shop for them here…. http://www.desigual.com/en_GB/kids-clothes/
Finally, here is something for the boys….
There are also a small selection of baby clothes. I recommend Desigual based upon my own experiences. The items I have bought wash very well, have kept their shape and are always commented upon by my friends as they are different to other things you can buy on the high street!
Shop Desigual here if you like the look 🙂 http://www.desigual.com

Finding the the Gipsy in you…
After having the opportunity of perusing the Phase Eight website, at first I found it rather difficult to choose my outfit, as there are so many options. After an hour or so of consideration I have finally decided upon my choices. I am so happy with these I am considering purchasing this dress for an up and coming event I am attending. I ABSOLUTELY love it, and can see any front row guest in this outfit. The style of the dress is something I would expect to see on the likes of Kate Moss and I love the colour.
I decided to accessorize this dress with a bolero style jacket, which is made from chiffon, giving a sheer look.
The outfit is finished off with matching shoes and bag, in gold which gives extra ‘bling’ and sophistication to the outfit, giving the perfect front row outfit for London Fashion Week! The shoes and bag also have a touch of ‘black’ tying in to the colour of the bolero.
Hope you like it!
As you may or may not know, I love to write about things I like, including clothes and accessories. My chosen items this time around are from a designer called Annie Haak http://www.anniehaakdesigns.co.uk/ Her website states that she gets much of the inspiration for her designs from the magical island of Bali where she is based for most of the year. Her influences are gathered from many aspects of Bali life from the local flora and fauna, the magical people and the colours and patterns found in the local markets and villages. Perhaps this is why some of the pieces really do appear rather magical!!!
Many of the designs carry a special meaning by way of mantras or symbols that represent luck, love, protection strength and well-being. It is core to Annie’s design ethos that all her designs should carry a message of either love or support.
I first came across this designer a couple of years ago when I was reading a spiritual magazine, some of her bracelets incorporating guardian angels were featured in the magazine. As a total ‘angel believer’ I immediately fell in love with them. So much so in fact that I cut out her Sama My Guardian Angel design and added it to my collage art work which hangs in my bedroom.
Additionally, I am naturally attracted to silver jewelry. It appears to suit my skin tone much better than gold. However, there is now a few gold and rose gold options, which are equally as beautiful, I guess it just depends upon your personal preference.
Unfortunately to date, I have not managed to get my hands on the bracelet stack I so desperately would like (see featured image), due to lack of funds, but should I ever start to get paid for my writing, then I will ensure my first pay check pays for one! I have however, treated myself to a lovely pair of earrings. Which I have had now for over a year. They are simple but lovely, a star with a single diamond in the middle. They still look like new and we were worth the pounds I spent investing in them. In addition, they came in a beautiful lined velvet bag and box which I now use to store some of my favourite crystals. This is a range which when you receive the item, everything about it screams ‘quality’. I was not disappointed and look forward to when I am able to add to my collection.
There are also lots of other reviews from happy customers on the website. If you like the style of this jewelry have a read, you will see there is nothing but positive comments about the quality and style of the jewelry. I am sure you too will love this range. I know Danni Minogue and Ferne Cotton are big fans too!
