How to get your wardrobe winter ready

NOW the weather has finally turned, I’ve spent quite a bit of time this week getting my wardrobe Winter ready. You may think this rather odd (and I wouldn’t blame you) but I actually LOVE sorting out my closet and getting it ready for the new season.

EVER wondered what it might be like to pretend to be someone else for a day? I’ve often believed that my life should be much more glamorous than it is.
