Sunday 7 – Dressing Down to Dress up

Dec 11th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 18 min read

Hello, How are you? Apologies for the delay in getting this final Sunday 7 of the year published…more a Tuesday 7, but that doesn’t sound quite as good, does it?! It’s a very busy time of year for pretty much everyone though, right? This post is probably also a bit too late in terms of Christmas Parties and the like, but if like me, you don’t…

Life in the 70s: Going Full Circle?

Dec 2nd, 2018 Small Talk Bean 13 min read

Hello, How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping & decorating? We don’t have a tree up yet. Zero decorations, in fact. We’re getting a bit of carpentry done at home next week… not the best timing, but it’s just how it’s worked out. Hopefully, hopefully… we can decorate the house after that. So… from the title of this blogpost, you may have guessed,…

Sunday 7 – The Christmas Jumper Edit

Nov 25th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 16 min read

Hello! Welcome back to a Sunday 7! Getting festive this week, and taking a look at Christmas Jumpers. It’s Christmas Jumper day on December 14th… according to Save the Children but, in order to make the most of your investment, I think it’s OK to wear your festive knit or sweatshirt anytime from now, right through January… … and in fact, if you choose wisely, and go…

Shop Small – The Indie Xmas Gift Guide 2018

AHello there! I’ve been a little absent from my usual Sunday 7 slot… it’s getting to that time of year again, a bit like the Summer Sales, where it’s everywoman for herself, with ‘Black Friday’ deals being fired at us left, right and centre… … and if it’s not BF deals, then it’s the Party Dress edits or Party Shoe edits on the regular blogs…

A Gallery Wall with Hidden Meaning

Oct 28th, 2018 Small Talk, Small Town Home Bean 13 min read

Hello, And welcome to a Sunday… blog-post. No actual Sunday 7 today, just a generic little blog-post, about my lounge room Gallery Wall, which has taken some 6 years to put up. In fact, longer if I count the years which Mr T & I have shared a home – all of which pretty much sported, bare, naked walls! So here it is, my gallery…

Sunday 7 – Slinky Satin Edit

Oct 14th, 2018 Small Talk, Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello, Welcome to another Sunday 7 – possibly the hardest one I’ve compiled to date. And by hardest, I mean, most difficult… I feel somewhat sombre and heavy-hearted in the knowledge that I am a teeny-tiny cog in the massive machine that has contributed to the awful environmental destruction of our planet. All in the name of fashion FFS. Utterly ridiculous! Before I launch into…

The Aran-Cable Knit Edit

Oct 5th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 8 min read

Hello, A quick, cheeky Friday blog-post to review the Mango Cardigan (£49.99) I ordered this week… It arrived today and went straight on: a good sign, right? I hadn’t been expecting much, because the smallest size available was “XS-S” which from experience, normally means sizing will be generous. After all, look at how boxy the cut of the cardi is: It’s made from a 100% mix of man made…

Sunday 7 – Autumn Winter Stripes and how to wear them when the weather gets cooler

Sep 30th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 19 min read

Hello! September has just flown by, hasn’t it? For some reason, I’ve been thinking about stripes a lot lately. Perhaps because the summer was *so* hot, I didn’t wear my beloved Breton tops as much as I might normally wear in a ‘normal temperature’ British Spring… But with September being as mild as it has been, I’ve worn my Bretons a few times recently, and was…

Sunday 7 – Sports Luxe

Jul 15th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 22 min read

Hello! Welcome to what is going to be for most, an entire 7 of ‘wildcard’ items: a Sports Luxe 7. I figured, given it’s been a sporty kinda month, what with the World Cup and Wimbledon grande finale’s today… not to mention most of those with kids enduring Sports Days in recent weeks, it was time to have a little fun with a Sunday 7…
