I’VE LOST MY INNER REBEL (AND I WANT HER BACK)

I THINK I may have lost my edge. I realised that last week. I looked in my wardrobe and didn’t like half the clothes that currently hang in there. I looked back over a few months work of blog posts and thought much of my work was too ‘safe’. I looked in the mirror and couldn’t see her. No matter how hard I tried. I couldn’t see my inner rebel.

LIFE AND STUFF! (AN UPDATE)

CAN you believe we’re already two weeks into 2016? I ask you, when on earth did this happen?! Crazy stuff indeed. Anyhow, I hope you’re all having a smashing start to the year and are managing to hit the ground running with all of your hopes, desires and goals! It’s been a pretty eventful couple of weeks here, so I thought I’d share with you all a quick update of

ELSIE IS GROWING UP TOO FAST, SO I’M SLOWING DOWN

I CAN feel Elsie’s childhood slipping through my fingers. Really, I can. Those special moments, this special age she’s at, it’s all slipping through my fingers at an alarming rate. I’ve been hanging on, trying to keep up, doing my best to stop them all slipping through, but it’s been a struggle. And recently I’ve had a wake up call.

IF THE HAT FITS (WEAR IT)

WHAT do you all think about the hat? Do you wear them? Would you buy one? Are you a fan? I’ve always been a bit of a closet hat lover. I’ve loved them for years, have fawned over vintage ones in shops and gasped at photos of women in bygone times, dressed up to the nines in their dainty pillerbox hats and elegant buttery leather gloves. But besides an odd

AN AGONY AUNT COLUMN, BY YOURS TRULY

YUP, you heard right! Call me bonkers, call me silly, call me daft as a brush (or worse if you fancy, as long as you keep it to yourself!) but I’ve decided to attempt and introduce some kind of regular ‘advice’ column to Pouting In Heels. It’s something that’s actually been in the back of my mind for ages, months in fact. And then I came across two things recently

25 PRACTICAL SECRETS FOR A LOVELIER LIFE (AND YOU!)

KEEPING going with the New Year vibe still, today I’m sharing some secrets. Woop, woop! Of the practical kind. The stuff that has worked for me over the years. The little changes I’ve made or things I do on a regular basis which work a treat! And which will, I promise you, help to make you and your life, a little lovelier this year. (Or perhaps a lot!) I’m very

MAKE 2016 YOUR YEAR, TO BE KIND, TO YOU

I DON’T believe in New Year resolutions. I don’t like the pressure, the feeling that we’re all somehow not good enough or the expectation that we all need to change something. However. All that aside, I do absolutely, hand on heart, totally and utterly adore New Year and the inescapable buzz of transformation, hope and excitement that hangs in the air. Because whilst I don’t believe in making a mammoth

A FAMILY HOLIDAY TO LAKE MAGGIORE, ITALY

IT seems only right that I finish 2015 with this post. About our family holiday to Lake Maggiore in Italy. Because it was a stand out holiday for many reasons. It was our first holiday abroad, through this blog. It was the first time we’d been to Italy with Elsie. It was also the place where I had the biggest health scare of my life. It was a time for
