Well it wasn’t quite Coachella but we packed up with a group of friends and travelled down to the Scottish borders for the Melrose Sevens – a weekend with a festival atmosphere, lots of laughs and at least a little bit of sunshine. There was even live music (it might have been the locals, Auntie Liz and Hilda) but, you know what, it was a whole heap of fun. Perfect birthday weekend for me!

Pale pinks and this new mane of hair mean I am about as close to a princess as I ever will be – you won’t expect to see me in pink sequins and ruffles anytime soon but I do see more lace in my closet’s future, and naturally there are always the stripes, but I do like to keep the feminine touch evident. Spring light and cherry blossoms don’t hurt either.
Have a wonderful weekend.x

Monochrome favourites from the daily routine with all my fav Calvin Klein makeup and new Nike Free’s and signs of spring with fresh berries and sunshine park walks and bare toes and nautical stripes and puppy love and shooting new collections at the day job and wanderlusting in watercolour and shoe-shaped dreams as Manolo Blahnik landed in Edinburgh’s Harvey Nichols last night and some pretty personal perfume from Reiss and dog walk coffee stops and good hair days with Bellami and the ultimate selfie with Sheri at the opening of the incredible Ted Baker store on Buchanan Street captured by that cute Garcon.
Aaaaand congratulations to the lovely Laura who is the winner of the Hush giveaway – sriped and neon goodies coming your way.x
Like my reignited love for my white shirts (evidenced here and here lately), it seems the good ol’ white tee is not to be overlooked either. You can roll the sleeves, add a neckscarf, layer on the gold – whatever takes your fancy… they just feel easy right now and spring should be all about the fresh and easy. I just picked this Asos number up and I’m loving it so far – sometimes the cheaper tees lose shape after a wash but this one is holding its own plus the v ducks down deep enough to be interesting without being too interesting and that’s a trick.

Oh my gosh, I feel like a pony – you know the ones you see in movies (they may have unicorns) and they prance through the clouds swishing their glossy manes? Well, that’s me.
I’m so excited to partner with Bellami and show you these Piccolina clip-in extensions because I truly love them. I have plenty of hair but it is super fine so it never really has any weight to it (that’s why it usually spends a lot of time in a messy bun or jammed under a hat. If not, it’s catching in the wind and sticking in my lipstick…). Until now. I opted for the Piccolina 18” because it was natural looking fullness I was craving, rather than length, and a little bit of lightness for spring. These are perfect for everyday wear but if something more glamorous is up your street then Bellami also offer the 20” and 22” extensions.
So down to the details… they are super easy to clip in (like so easy your Dad could do it), the hair is soft and shiny with an amazing mix of natural colours in each piece so they really blend with your own hair and they’re really quite light so you can wear them all day and pretty much forget you’re even wearing them (until you catch your reflection and remember that you’re a mane-swishing unicorn).
I’ve been really busy creating a video tutorial for you and I’m also excited to start styling these babies in all the big summer braids I’ve never have enough hair for so stay tuned!x
