The perfect white tee

Thankfifi- The perfect white tee-7

The perfect white tee is not easy to come by.  Sometimes the basics are the really tricky bits to get spot on.  But this tee has it nailed.  It’s fitted and yet has the perfect boyfriend slouch.  Its v is just right, not too low, not too high, not too wide – just right.  It washes really well (I should know, I’ve worn it almost non-stop since I bought it).  And it’s white as white can be.  I have ordered more colours already because I know I’ll wear them all the time.  Do yourself a favour and do the same, I promise you won’t regret it (your other half might when you’ve worn it all day long and decide you must sleep in it too, then the next morning you wash it and crank up the heating to get it dry again…  It’s that good).

Happy Friday.x

P.S.  After a bit of a fall out with After Effects – you know the kind that starts as an aloof ‘you will not get the better of me’ huff, evolves into a screaming ‘I hate you’ one sided fight before the emotional ‘I’m sorry, just tell me how to fix this’ crawl back – I have finally managed to get my first ever video tutorial online.  Go watch my super easy Spring Ombre Hair video here.  Hope you like it.x

Our Coachella…

Thankfifi- If Coachella were in Melrose-4

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!

Thankfifi- Princess-6

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

Instalife lately


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
