Spring is finally on it’s way, we can now wave goodbye to jumpers and lots of layers and start thinking of lighter clothes. If you are a fashion lover like me, you have probably noticed the latest trend in the shops; ruffles and tie fronts.

Ruffles are everywhere at the moment, not just on shirts, but on dresses, tops, skirts and even trousers. It might not be a trend for everybody but ruffles look great and they add a bit of fun to formal dressing and work wear.

If you work in an office environment it’s always nice to wear something different and ruffles on shirts are perfect. I’ve got a few pieces recently but this is probably my favourite. It’s a formal shirt from H&M. It’s quite flattering, smart enough to wear to work but equally good to wear with jeans or dress down.

As a mum of very small children I never expect anything special for Mother’s Day. There is nothing better than a homemade card, a drawing or perhaps a bunch of flowers. However with Mother’s Day just around the corner I have put together a gift guide with few ideas for different styles, should you want to treat your mum a little bit.

I really enjoy looking inside other people’s homes to see their ideas and design choices, don’t you? Here is a sneaky peak inside my friend Donna Ashworth from Ladies Pass it On‘s home. I would love to hear about your favourite pieces too.

As a lover of all things interior and a big fan of this blog I am over the moon to share with you those items within my own home that bring me constant pleasure.  Like most of us I imagine, there are many things still on my to-do list but these particular aspects of my house are what makes it a home.

The Big light

My husband bought me this A light as an anniversary gift, the symbolism of the A for my married name is dear to me, and I think this light looks great in my under-stairs nook. It casts a really cosy glow in the evenings and it means something special to us too.

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:
