12 stand-out sandals perfect for summer

30 May 2018

Now that we've had a brief display of how hot the weather can be it's times like these that most of us realise how much we need some suitable shoes or sandals to keep our feet cool and to style with our summer clothes.

Footwear can be such a personal thing, especially when you choose to have a such a wide range of options available to you at home (otherwise known as collecting/hoarding/being a shoeaholic). For some of us it's not enough to have just a pair of flip flops for the beach and a pair of sandals for the bar. It's perfectly okay to have a pair of thick strap flat sandals for wandering about town, some slightly heeled versions for a meal out, metallic flipflops for the beach, toe-post sandals with tassels for an easy day-to-night look and any others that suit your style. The options really are endless!

Artificial plants for modern landscaping - What you need to know

28 March 2018

The finely trimmed lines and lush green colour of plants can brighten up the mood any time of the day. But to keep them looking the same all day, every day is a cumbersome task and prove to be quite expensive while managing large spaces over a long period. To keep big office spaces, malls, and hospitals look as sharp with a contemporary look, artificial plants and trees have proven to be of great help. Starting from ornamental grasses to boxwood topiary, the choices with silk plants are innumerable for modern landscaping designs.


that polka dot trend and how to wear it without looking retro

23 March 2018

Polka dots can look quite retro and while I like that look on other people it’s really not something that suits my style. However this season has seen some great pieces being launched into the highstreet and I’m very tempted to be brave and give polka dots a go, with the aim to avoid retro vibes if I can. Some of these pieces could be worn in a way that looks styled in the 60s but I think that they are also perfectly suited for a formal workwear ensemble or fun night out outfit and this is exactly how I’d choose to wear them. There are also a number of types of dotty accessories that could add a statement to an otherwise plain or ordinary outfit which could be a simple way to ease into polka dot trend

Is getting an emotional support animal status difficult?

22 March 2018

Everybody deserves an uncomplicated and peaceful treatment for any sort of illness. But when it especially comes to the illness of minds, sometimes your pets know it better how to help you deal with a certain kind of a trauma than your therapist who would have otherwise prescribed you the stereotypes, and in a way more isolated and repressive techniques. Have you heard about the ESAs yet? It’s all about getting an animal, preferably dog, in most cases, by your side for your emotional support especially when you are going through mental stress.

new in: ring detail mini backpack

13 March 2018

The ring detail that started gaining popularity because of the Chloe bag can now be found everywhere. I’ve seen leather gloves and ankle boots with ring pulls, belts with a metal ring decorating it or in place of the buckle and of course many bags inspired by (and mimicking) the original. Handbags, cross body bags and backpack styles are all decorated with this circular hardware and they're littering our store, online shops and social media inspiration - of course this means that we all want one!


I’ve contemplated buying a number of bags with this detail now, most recently including a similar style backpack on asos but it was too big and large soft pink cross body bag from Matalan but it was too pink! This bag from Bagail.com inevitably won me over and I'm pleased it did.
