Imaginary Christmas

Christmas does feel like an imaginary kinda time, so I thought it only appropriate that the season should be marked, not just with hairy silver tinsel, twinkly lights and too much Cliff Richard, but also with an imaginary outfit. I am drooling over this one, more than ever. I’m not sure how glamorous Christmas is […]

Would you ever wear?

In January things can get a little heavy. The snow has stirred up some post-Christmas stress, everyone feels calorie dense, the resolutions didn’t really ever get going and it’s still really cold. So what we all need is a healthy dose of light entertainment, and I’m not talking charades. Let’s play a game of ‘would […]

You Don’t Need a Hood to be in the Hood

Heard of S.I.T.H? It could stand for many things: Sizzling In The Heat…. or Super Igloo: Tremendous Home… or Screaming Invisible Trampoliner Hurt.

Their toes might have been warm, but there was no […]

Festive Knits: Ho Ho Ho.

It’s just a few days into the advent calendar, but Christmas fever has already taken over. The lights are up, the fake snow machine is pumping out white flakes and Cliff Richard has begun infiltrating the airwaves. There are many festive frolics to be had, but perhaps the most festive and most frolicky of them […]

Plastic Fantastic

Best letter of the alphabet? It has to be ‘K’. For starters it looks fantastically angular, can be written uniquely in each style of handwriting – so it’s personal, and some of the most wonderful people have names which begin with this letter. Of course I’m talking about Keith Chegwin, Kanye West and Keira Knightly….cough […]
