Mama Style | Wild About Easter

How did the Easter holidays treat you this year? 

It was an unbelievable weekend of constant sunshine where we live, so it really felt like an actual holiday. It was the perfect blend of spending time as a family, hanging out in the garden using our pizza oven, meeting family and friends and doing Easter egg hunts with the kids, trips to the park and tackling a few outstanding jobs around the house.

Of course, all these quick-fire weather changes can be a little confusing when it comes to what to wear. At the start of last week, I was still in my thermal tights scraping frost off the car windshield in the morning, so to suddenly be in 24 degree heat was a little surreal - I had to hurriedly pull out a couple of the summer pieces I'd bought recently with holidays in mind!

Life, Lately | April 2019

Welcome to spring! With the beautifully sunny Easter holiday we've just had, it really feels as if the seasons have turned a corner.

I tend to go into serious hibernation mode post-Christmas, and as a family, we had a couple of setbacks at the start of the year - serious illness and bereavement in both sides of the family.

And so it has felt like 2019 got off to a very slow start. Finally, everything is feeling fresher and brighter.

Latest In Beauty | Sunday Times Style Awards Box

Okay, so I did say I was through with beauty boxes for a while, but I also said I was easily tempted and here we are!

While I have cancelled my regular sub to LookFantastic due to being thoroughly backed up with items I haven't used, the Sunday Times Style edit with Latest In Beauty was being so buzzed about on some of the beauty groups I'm in on Facebook that I couldn't ignore it.

You can pick your own items from a selection of products shortlisted for the Sunday Times Style Awards, and there were several things I really wanted to try.

This is only a one off, once a year box but apparently last year's sold out super quickly, and although I saw quite a few people saying the options weren't neatly as good this year, I'm happy with what I picked.

The Beauty Edit | Part Two

Recently, I shared some of my hot new beauty discoveries here on the blog. And because the best movies always have a sequel, and there are a few more items I've been loving, here's part two.

Mama Style | Dotty About Culottes

Quite often, my life doesn't feel very put together, so sometimes the only remedy is to take refuge in clothes and try to create a look that is. 

Although fashion won't fix all your problems, it can put a little smile on your face and give your day a lift. I've never been one of those girls who just look cool in whatever they wear, and it feels like style is a secret language that I don't speak.

That's why it's quite important to me to share outfits on this blog, in a way. I want to fly the flag for those who struggle a bit with fashion but love it anyway.
