Let me tell you something about me, not only I am short, but my legs are disproportionately short compared to the rest of my body. Yes, it’s true. Buying trousers is always a bit of a mission and even petite ranges are sometimes a bit too long for me.

I’ve recently been on the search for a new pair of jeans and this has made me realize how it’s not always easy if you are petite. After trawling lot’s of shops and trying different styles and brands, I finally got the perfect pair in Marks & Spencer, one place I didn’t even realize did short length jeans.

Here are some of my favourite places to buy petite jeans:

I can’t believe we are already in the middle of January. The days and weeks seem to fly by and spring will hopefully be here soon. One of my blogging resolutions for the year is to produce more style / fashion posts. This was my intention when I created the blog 18 months ago but somehow fashion got a bit sidetracked  in favour or parenting and interior posts.

I am not working at the moment, and haven’t been since the end of October. This has really affected my style, I am making less of an effort and I find myself wearing jeans and scruffy jumpers on a daily basis. It’s easy to get into a bit of a rut if you spend a lot of time at home. My short term goal is to do a bit of a wardrobe clear out and start wearing anything but jeans.

2016 was the year of the Scandi style, the comeback of copper and marble and the year we brought the indoors in. If you love Instagram as much as me you have probably seen these in your feed on a daily basis. Love them or hate them, those were some of the key trends of 2016. But will they still be around this year?  With interior trends constantly changing this is something difficult to predict but I am sure some of them will still be popular in 2017.

Here are the top 5 interior styles  I think we will see a lot in 2017:

Velvet

Velvet textures and fabrics in rich jewel tones like teal, emerald green and magenta will be a great hit this year.  It’s all about the luxury, and giving an air of opulence to your home. It’s the time to be bold and out there with your decor choices.

I am very excited about this trend, I am a colour lover and I think we will see some beautiful decor pieces in the next few months.Interior Trends

I am not sure you, but it seems like the older I get the faster the time goes! I can´t believe 2016 is about to end as it seems like it was only yesterday we were saying goodbye to 2015.

2016 has been a great year for my blog. When I started it 18 months ago I wasn´t sure where it would take me or how long I´d keep it for.  The past 12 months have been truly amazing, I´ve had the chance to attend lovely events, like Homebase Christmas partySolan de Cabras launch in the UK , Mothers Meeting at the Outnet and  Estimation Nation Baking event with Smart Energy UK.

I´ve also had the chance to work with amazing companies, like Epson, The Co-op , Westfield  and Wayfair -to name a few. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I´ve had and for the trust the brands have put in my blog.

These below have been my top 5 most popular posts of the year.  I have listed the links below in case you fancy reading in the new year.
