From stunning velvet blazers (like the gorgeous one below I’ve got on the way from LOTD) to winter boots, chunky knits and gorgeous dresses, I’m always excited about browsing the shops and finding lovely new pieces for the season from the comfort of my sofa, with a glass of wine in hand. And so

I WON! (AT THE NORTHERN BLOG AWARDS)

I won an award on Saturday night. But before I tell you all about it and share some pics, I firstly need to say a thank you. To you! For reading this blog of mine. My blog is now five years old. I started it in 2012 in early pregnancy when I found myself unable to walk for about a month after seriously hurting my back. It was truly a
