Well hello there,
Happy, very belated, new year to you all!
I hope you have all had a better start to the new year than i’ve had….. I was struck down by a terrible infection which left me in bed for 8 days. I did not even venture downstairs in the house. It was probably the worst that I have ever felt in my life. My fellow lupus sufferers will understand just how unwell we get when we get sick. Anyway, onwards and upwards! I’m feeling much better now and building my strength up for my charity trek in Lapland!
with only a few weeks to go i’m frantically trying to get organised. Most of all making sure I have the correct kit, the kit that will stop me from feeling cold in minus 22, YES minus 22!! (thats today’s temperature out there!). I’ve been scouring the internet looking at different arctic expedition brands and I can honestly say that there are not that many that do the job of keeping you super toasty but also that look good too! You know me, I need to look good! ha!
I really like the jackets from Canada Goose.
I also need mittens to keep my hands warm and love these Camp Mitts!

I have been raising money and awareness for this trek too. The charity that i’m raising for is Lupus UK. Please feel free to visit my just giving page!
The lovely Anthea Turner is taking the challenge with me and you will be able to read all about our adventure in Hello! magazine. There will also be a diary version on Hello! magazine online.
Lots has been happening with Kelly Simpkin London and I am thrilled to announce that my High Waisted Blue Suede Shorts were featured in the brilliant new Hello! fashion Magazine. I absolutely love this magazine so the fact that my designs are appearing is just fantastic! These shorts are just perfect for any time of the year, team with tights and boots in the winter, and make your legs look like they go on forever with sky scrapper wedges in the summer! Just gorgeous!
I’m busy working on my AW 15 collection and I will be sure to share some sneak peeks as and when things are ready! In the mean time I will tell you that I’m going more ‘evening’ with this season! #exciting!
Just a short hello from me this time….will be back soon!
Until then…..big love
