Instagram roundup

Looking back on my Instagram feed this month you can tell there’s been a change of season. It’s definitely looking more than a bit autumnal.

  Call me nosey, but I like to know what people carry in their handbags and after seeing a few similar posts pop up over summer, I was totally inspired to do the same. I don’t like to travel light when I’m boarding a plane. I’m always afraid that I’ll miss an essential item and […]

I used to love back to school shopping when I was a child. The thrill of a new pencil case, pens and a new schoolbag. I’d even love the feeling of my crisp new school uniform. What can I say? I was a real geek! These days back to school shopping is a very different experience for […]
