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…

Hello! And welcome to a very special little blog post… all about my Instagram hashtag #fridayfeet, a Converse Outlet store opening and a bonanza giveaway! I’m genuinely so excited, I don’t know where to start! So, first thing’s first… I’ve been in touch with Swindon Designer Outlet over the past couple of months to bring you a fantastic giveaway as a way of saying thanks…

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…

Sunday 7 – Cheap Summer Treats

Jul 8th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 14 min read

Hello! And welcome back to a Sunday 7 after an impromptu two week break… … and confession time: I struggle to blog about ‘new-in’ stuff during this frenzied season of sales, where most people are simply interested in bagging a bargain and there is little to none ‘new-in’ to blog about. That and this heatwave. I always blame the weather for everything. Or the kids!…

Sunday 7 – Shoes for Spring and beyond!

Apr 15th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 20 min read

Hello, And welcome back to a Sunday 7 after a little interruption to last week’s service in the form of my first ‘lurgy’ since last summer (so I shouldn’t complain too much!) as well as the fact that it was my wedding anniversary. 13 years! Anyway – last weeks draft blog post is yet another which will never see the light of day: I’m fickle…

Sunday 7 – Spots and Stripes

Mar 25th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 19 min read

Hello! And welcome back to my first Sunday 7 after a little 2 week hiatus… sometimes, life gets in the way, and other times, inspiration dwindles and thins out until you hit a blank. So rather than forcing it, and being disingenuous with the blog, I take a step back at these low inspo times, and sure enough, within a week or two, I’m suddenly full…

Sunday 7 – After the Beast…

Mar 4th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 17 min read

Hello! *So* delighted that the ‘Beast from the East’ has blown over: how about you? I’d like to say it was just a ‘storm in a teacup’ and no biggie, but we all know it’s been a little more than that: I haven’t left the house since getting home from yoga on Wednesday night! Whilst others have turned to online shopping for solace, this polar vortex has…

Sunday 7 – Weather Crisis

Feb 25th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 17 min read

Hello! Welcome back to another Sunday 7 after a half-term break: how was yours? I was lucky enough to have a long, family weekend in London this half term – and by lucky, I’m essentially referring to the fact that that first off, the husband actually (like for *real*) took a school holiday day-off (this never happens!) but that most of all, the really bleak weather…
