international women's day

international women's day

For us, International Women's Day is all about supporting and inspiring one another; not only in the world of business but in every day life.  There is no denying that women deserve equal recognition and gender parity but just a mere act of kindness to each other epitomises the message behind IWD.  

Instagram, whether you love it or hate it, has been a great platform to meet, connect and support other women in business.  Those squares are proof of the hugely talented women out there who have grafted, made sacrifices and overcome challenges to be where they are today.

let there be love

let there be love

When you think of February, what comes to mind?  Love and romance? Grey days and freezing temperatures? Our answer probably speaks volumes; but let's not get in to that! February is synonymous with Valentine’s Day. A phenomenon that just keeps on growing.  The pressure to buy something ‘just right’ for your loved one can make the art of gifting a minefield for an old romantic. Judging the price (can the monetary value be translated in to the strength of my love?), the content (staying on the right side of ‘romantic’ that is not too cliché) and, of course, choosing something that they might actually like can make even the bravest run for the hills.

ski edit | slope style

ski edit | slope style

One of the best cures for the January blues?  A break in the mountains.  If you are one of the lucky ones heading off to the slopes, now is the time to wheel out your favourite cashmere, moon boots and sunnies.  Even if snow sports aren’t your thing, who doesn't like jacuzzis, a spot of mountain retail and the prospect of a ‘vin chaud’?  It is always a challenge to nail après ski style.  Particularly if time does not allow an outfit change between a day on the slopes and a night at a club.  There is no need to forsake warmth for style these days.

It is always much easier to follow the crowd, not least with fashion choices but also with opinions; be they political or ethical as you feel a sense of solidarity and unity.  Stronger together and all that.  Society also reinforces this by the wearing of uniforms and strict dress codes for work and parties etc.  Ironically, standing out from the crowd is much more empowering and projects a stronger more independent image.

new resolutions. new designs.

new resolutions. new designs.

Happy New Year.  New Year Resolutions?  Any that you have stuck to anyway?!  Mine is to only wear and, consequently, buy things that I love.  Investment pieces being key to this mantra. I don't know about you, but when any one mentions investment pieces it always conjures up images of wardrobe basics in classic colours that slip under the radar and can be worn year after year.  It also implies a high price that you justify through price per wear. In short, expensive but boring.

christmas | all wrapped up

christmas | all wrapped up

It is hard, if not a little alarming, to believe that Christmas is under two weeks away.  Every year it feels as though it comes around more quickly which clearly can't be the case; I am obviously just getting more disorganised as the years go by. So, I thought it might be helpful to pull together a gift guide for that all important wife, sister and mother in your life to avoid any presents slipping through the tinsel covered net.
