LIKE SHOPPING IN THE MENS SECTION? I’VE FOUND THE NEXT BEST PLACE

I love shopping in the mens section, it’s my go to for crew neck tees and oversized sweaters, but I recently discovered a new place to shop for my tees! Are you excited yet?

Well, a couple of weeks ago the H&M catalogue landed on my doormat; I perused through the women’s, then through the men’s. After that, I flicked through the kids clothes and immediately stopped when I came to a Mickey Mouse t-shirt that I just had to have!  So I scoped the rest of the page, then the rest of the kid’s pages to see if I’d find any other hidden gems.  Now I’ve always known H&M have some really great pieces for children and in my late teens, I used to buy them. However, I haven’t entertained the thought of buying any in a long time!

Now I’ve always known H&M have some really great pieces for children, and up to my early 20s, I used to buy them. However, I haven’t entertained the thought of buying any in a long time!

What made me entertain it this time? Like Sway, I ain’t got the answers! Anyway, I went to the store, you know to check the sizing – and bought 3 tees instantly. Check the 3 below…

The only reason I stopped at tees is they’re the only thing that’ll fit. My arms and legs are too long to fit anything else, i.e. their badass tracksuits.  Unlike when I’m shopping in the mens section and the tracksuit bottoms are long enough but too baggy in the front.

If you are fortunate enough to have the boys tracksuits, bomber jackets, et al, fit you, then go get some! They go up to age 14+.

LIFE’S TOO SHORT

life's-too-short-1

My cousin Sonia died earlier this month, she was only 52 years old.  She was diagnosed with cancer less than two months before.  My experience of loved ones dying has been minimal (thankfully) but I have experienced death nonetheless.  However, this is different.  This is someone that has been taken from us, and from her own life way too soon.  It’s incredibly surreal, to say the least.  As upsetting as it has been, this has really put life into perspective for me, life’s too short.

HOW TO WEAR BLACK IN THE SUMMER

wear-black-in-the-summer

I find the summer months the hardest to dress for; primarily because I’m a “jeans and tee” kinda gal, secondly because I’m not hugely into dresses, and thirdly because I’m heavily into black.  So, it makes perfect sense for me to do a post on how to wear black in the summer riiiight?!  For you, and for me!

ONE SKIRT TWO OUTFITS

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s how to pack light…er that I used to.  Up until 2 years ago, I would pack in “outfits” and “just in case bits”.  When I moved back to Birmingham I had to travel to London weekly for a client.  I quickly learned to travel light, to protect my back, my arms, and my legs!

Packing separate outfits for three days (including shoes) (more…)

HAS AVEDA CURED MY FEAR OF THE SALON?

My Fear of the Salon

I’m not sure if I’ve said this in “public” but, I really cannot stand anybody else’s hands in my head, other than my own!  Seriously.  I’d go so far as to say I have a fear of the salon.  There’s nothing worse than going to the salon (or wherever your hairdresser resides) and not being happy with the result.  That has happened to me too many times for me to mention, probably due to the fact that (more…)
