Foods and supplements to beat the January blues

UGHHH. January. I was doing ok at the beginning of the month when staying in, going to bed early and hibernating was what the doctor ordered after the excesses of Christmas, but the last two weeks of grey skies and rain has seriously started to lower my mood. So rather than ditch the family and book a solo flight to the Maldives I'm turning to nutritional advice, some great supplements and nourishing food....…

Be my (very stylish) Valentine

As January limps to a close, our thoughts turn to the new month - and its romantic heart: Valentine's Day. Red roses, hearts, the satisfying thud of cards on the doormat, gazing into your lover's eyes by candlelight... Or, in our cases, a night in with a meal we didn't have to cook and a night out with girlfriends #winning.…

Hush, Whistles, Me + Em, Boden…..The new spring collections have landed!

Bored of your winter wardrobe? Ready for the new season? Well, join the club. With payday just around the corner, we are very excited that new season collections from the likes of Hush, Me + Em, Whistles and Boden are starting to drop….. Ok, so don’t get too excited as it is early days and these aren’t the main collections with the killer pieces. Brands are bringing out what they call ‘pre-collections’ or what we call the early bits of spring/summer. There are a lot of staples, a lot of wardrobe cornerstones and a few pieces that you’d do well to nab now before they sell out…. Hush is a Wear & Where favourite. Easy, flattering every day wear with a few ‘wow’ gems thrown in, the arrival of a new collection is always a tick in our books. Isn’t this jumper (above) gorgeous? Embroidered with flowers, it’s the very definition of spring. And, very wearable too. I tried this pink sweatshirt on in John Lewis and really liked it, the puff sleeves and the hue are really fab. And, is it any surprise that Hush have brought back their classic ‘Love’ jumper? This dress (above) is so cute and such an easy throw on…

Meet your new favourite shopping destination (and be inspired by its owner)

As much as we love the high street is for a quick fix, as we get older we like to make sartorial investments. Our secret weapon on such occasions is a boutique where the owners' taste tallies so perfectly with your own that it's as though they've edited the collections just for you. A boutique like Iris, for instance. It now has eight gorgeous branches across London (and a burgeoning website), selling exactly what we want to wear. Co-owner Annie Pollet tells us about building a business, having an eye for a great brand and somehow managing family life on top of that. …
