Guest blog at Work from Home Wisdom

Hello, Lovelies

After self-publishing my scrumptious style guide, 119 Style Boosts from the Size15Stylist, I virtually-bumped into a fabulous website, Work from Home Wisdom, a gorgeous crock pot of advice and inspiration for home workers everywhere.  I wrote a guest blog for the site, offering insight into how I published through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing programme - and who helped me along the way (grandparents and partner included).  Why not have a read?

Back to the matter of birthdays, August just passing and all.  To celebrate, I invested in a little art last month:


I most definitely squeeeeeed with delight when I spotted this beautiful DKNY Bryant Park purse, and knew I had to invest.  For more details, check out the House of Fraser link.  There also happens to be a bag available in this print, too ... it's never too early to think about Christmas Eve sales (it launched mid-August and didn't make it into the Bank Holiday sale; fingers crossed for a pre-Christmas discount).

Also made it up to Southampton and Bournemouth last weekend, for a spot of shopping in between air show displays and a Peppa Pig World visit.  Spent lots of time in Southampton's Ikea (bits crossed for an early 2015 Exeter Ikea opening) and Bournemouth's TK Maxx, where I found this gorgeous Fashion hardback book, charting the absolute history of fashion from way back then to 2012.

Now it's back to writing my second book, leaf-shuffling with toddler-daughter and checking out new stationer:y: how's your September treating you?

From Ashford to Plymouth (and Cornwall) in a fortnight

So, Easter: how did you spend yours? 

I've just looked back over my recent photos and I think I know why this Pinot and Cadbury's egg is going down so well....we've packed in a fair bit over the last fourteen days.

Our adventures began in Ashford, Kent, via an overnight with friends in Chippenham - where I managed to leave my purse and my daughter's Kindle behind!  Time to pop on some sunnies and kick off your shoes: 




Thankfully we were staying with friends in Ashford, so we shared our budget for the five days of fun. 

First stop was Folkestone beach.  


Chicago: 48 Hours in the Magnificent Midwest

I first discovered Chicago in 2013, and have been fortunate enough to return several times since, usually for 24 or 48 hours, so I highly recommended this HIIT city destination. 

I also managed to fit in a 12 hour shopping trip layover when I visited Belize in April 2016.

A serial East Coast traveller (remember when everyone travelled to New York for a weekend break?) a work opportunity arose that saw me book a flight to Chicago for onward travel to a little student town called Champaign; four-hour return Amtrak trip, and well worth a visit for a true taste of America (they even have a freakin’ Dairy Queen).
Flights Flights are around 9 hours direct from the UK, and, depending how organised you are, range from £500-£800 for economy return.  
Hotels For reasons I’m about to go into, I enjoy staying at Hilton O’Hare (the only airport hotel; handy for layovers) or the Hilton Rosemont (one MTR stop from O’Hare and an entertainment haven).  City-centre hotels are very competitively priced, sta…
