Bermudas are in (I’m saying so). And I’m happy. They’re not a skirt and they’re not shorts as such because they’re long but the bermuda does share the best qualities of both – the universally flattering length coupled with the ability to cartwheel, should you wish, without the fear of exposing. Win win.
Happy Friday everyone – go buy bermudas.x

I actually love this little collection of rings I’ve been cultivating over the last month. It started with the tiny heart, a birthday gift, and shortly after her I ordered the slim set of 4 from Boticca. In fact I ordered the wrong sizes (I intended one for each finger) but I found myself with a tiny halfway ring which I love even more.

It probably goes without saying that these are my shoes of the moment. The shape is beautiful and the colour makes them pretty much a shiny extension of my actual leg (read lengthening) and to top it off, purely on a practical note, they’re wipeable (I do have a dog and he does tread on my toes). I’ve already worn them so many ways, this was prob my fav, and I’m sure there will be plenty more to come but this look today, a classic day to night look, is one I styled specially for Daniel’s emailer which you can check out here. I was so excited yesterday to find that dropping into my inbox!

So the trouble with having a sore throat is the medicine. Gallons of icecream. That’s not necessarily a problem except that, with 6 weeks to go, it’s wreaking havoc with Operation Beach Body.
But then… lightbulb moment – I remembered about this little gem. Icecream but not as you know it. It’s bananas. No really, bananas. And that’s it.
I went kinda tropical but you can go pure banana, or add in a generous scoop of peanut butter, or try a swirl of honey or really anything you fancy.
You know what? If you did a taste test you’d know which was the imposter but this is also the absolute best way to eat bananas and bananas are very, very good for you.
Skinny banana chococonut icecream
8 ripe bananas
1 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder
Peel and chop the bananas and pop them in a sealed tub in the freezer for around 2-3 hours.
Scoop the frozen banana pieces into a food processor and blend. You’ll prob need to stop and scrape quite a few times but persevere because eventually you’ll get iced banana grit followed by rich creamy banana smoosh. Add your cocoa and blend, then remove the blades and stir in the toasted coconut.
Place the mixture into a loaf pan or icecream tin (who has one of those really?) because I think the metal cools better and helps the icecream to freeze.
You’ll have to leave it alone now for at least 3 hours. Ideally 5. Or maybe the next day.
When you’re ready simply scoop that guilt free deliciousness into cones or cups and enjoy. Feel smug. Post photos to all your social media channels and tell everyone you’re just enjoying one of your 5 a day – really.
Feeling somewhat under the weather with a pretty severe case of the sniffles coupled with the irritation of sporadic half-hearted nosebleeds. So jeans and a tee are feeling pretty comfortable right now and the suede biker has become my second skin. But hold the casual horses, fashion event to attend… add the fanny pack (still love the fact that I even own one) and heels. Done.
