I’m generally more of a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal, which is why I tend to put a lot more focus on my accessories. Sometimes, the little pieces can often be forgotten, but for me, these are what absolutely make an outfit. Plus… a good collection of accessories can often allow you to get away with recycling that little black dress twice in one week. Genius!

My accessory of choice at the moment… The printed shoe! I”m coveting every one of these pairs, I just need to find a place to keep them.


Bronze, Silver or Gold?

With the 2012 Olympics still in full force and happening just a few minutes down the road from where I work, I couldn’t actually avoid writing a post on it. So here it goes…

When tickets first became available I was pretty indifferent on whether I got to go or not, but since that amazing opening ceremony, I, like a million other people I’m sure, are desperate to get my hands on one. Excitingly enough, I did manage to get a taste of the action when the Cycle Road Race made its way down my road – even if it did only last about 10 seconds!
