OOTD!

Quick OOTD for you. Wearing my zara olive coat with black polo neck, black jeans and my trusty black Chelsea boots.  The olive and black work so well, it's one of my favourite coats for sure.

Cushions, cushions, cushions....

Sometimes, I'm a bit of a sewer. I love fabrics so decided to make childrens cushions because kids love cushions, right?! ;) 



Anyway if you moms and dads want to jazz up your little ones bedroom, I have some for sale on Etsy at OhSewCosy. Take a look :)

The Oscars 2015

So many gorgeous dresses this year. They are going to struggle for a "worst dressed" list. Highlight for me is Eddie Redmayne winning Best Actor for his role as Steven Hawking in "The theory of everything" such a brilliant and moving performance, I loved it. 
Anyway, back to the dresses.. Here's a few of my personal faves. 


Emma Stone in Ellie Saab. 

Rosamund Pike in Givenchy. 

Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent. 

Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford. 

Jennifer Aniston in Versace. 

Sienna Miller in Oscar de la Renta. 

And last but not least.. 

Eddie Redmayne with his well deserved Oscar. No dress obvs ;) 

For the love of Brogues

If there's one type of footwear I love, its brogues. Even more so patent brogues. And even more so burgundy, patent brogues. So naturally when I spotted these online at Office AND in the sale, I did a little jig... Followed by a purchase. 



I'm wearing them here with jeans but you can also where them with dresses, skirts, shorts, that's the great thing about them. 


Brogues- Office (sale) • Coat- Zara • Bag- Mulberry • Jeans- Primark

London baby!

Had a recent trip to London for my sisters 30th. Afternoon tea at Claridges  followed by Wicked at the Appollo Victoria and a stay at The Landmark on Marylebone road- with a few shopping trips Inbetween.

I love taking pics of the big smoke at the best of times but when the sun is shining- oh the beauty *love struck emoticon*. 





Afternoon tea at Claridges was quite something. Yummy finger sandwiches followed by some divine looking and tasting cakes and scones. Oh and man do they do a good brew! Made a slight error, however, in having a second tray of sarnies before the cakes came out as we couldn't manage to eat all the cakes (gutted). But they do box them up if you don't finish. 
This was defo one of my favourite afternoon tea experiences. 


Liberty London. 

Oxford street. 

The Ritz. 

Having a good pose outside Vogue House. 

Gorgeous houses in Mayfair. 

Winter garden in The Landmark. I've stayed here a few times with my husband and our boys and I never tire of it. Such a beautiful hotel. 

Classic Bentley- oh my! 

Such a sucker for a coloured door! 

Wicked at the Apollo Victoria. What a show. Amazing singing. Loved every second. It's gone right to the top of my list. 
My sis and I. 

Victoria's Secret. 


Was a great trip all in all :)
