My New Job

So my darlings, you must be feeling very unloved, and for that I am sorry. The reason for my silence is in fact a bit of good and interesting news. Some of you know this via Twitter, so forgive me for repeating myself, but I have taken a new job! Three weeks ago I began as Acting Beauty Editor of the fantastic IMAGE Magazine. This is a brand new challenge for me and one I had to think exceptionally hard about accepting as my girls are so young, particularly Anna, who was only three and a half months when I began.
But you know what? I now know that sometimes life offers you a chance, you may not know the outcome or even see the way clearly but you have to take it. You have to try it. If it doesn't work out, no-one's going to shoot you!
Being a beauty editor has always been one of my dreams and particularly so since I started Ellie Loves. I love beauty and I love's kinda nice that now they merge (and I get paid for it!)
However, I am merely keeping the seat warm for Liz who has gone to have her first baby so it's an experiment - I'm dipping my toe into unknown waters but here's hoping for good things.
After what was perhaps the worst year of my life last year (and the beginning of this one wasn't so great either!) this opportunity came along out of the blue and here I am... A juggling, multi-tasking, trying-it-on-for-size working Mum.
So my friends, I will be writing here more once I figure out this new and hectic way I'm arranging my life...bear with me and thank you for still coming to see what I have to say.

Lots of love

Yellow Fun

There's no better colour for Springy, sunny loveliness. Yes it's tricky to wear but add an accent to an otherwise neutral look and you're all set...

I love this idea of yellow tips!

Beige, yellow and black...good bedfellows.

Sweet scarf...

Or add it to your home...I'm coveting this pot a lot!

Happy Easter!

I hope the bunny arrives...
I hope the wrappers are sparkly...
I hope you smile as you crack them open...
I hope the chocolate is tasty...
I hope you eat too much (far too much)...
I hope you don't get a sore tummy and say 'never again'...
I hope you have fun with your little ones...

Have a lovely day darlings!

Good Words

This just resonates with me today. 
Good to keep in mind, right?

Flaws Are Good

I spotted this ceramic collection by Studiomake on one of my Pinterest trawls the other day and was instantly smitten by their beauty...

I love the idea behind them too. That is, that flaws can be beautiful so only the imperfect rims of the cups and bowls are gilded. It is called The Flawed Series and they are made in Thailand by craftsmen there.

Isn't this flesh toned bowl just lovely!

As is the grey... They can be bought via Gretel Home which also houses many, many other lovely things to swoon over and covet.

Goldie Brogues

I like these gold brogues from Clarks...very on trend don't you think!

Oh Clarks, you of the sensible school shoe, it is so nice to see you join us grown ups in our love for fashion!

J.Crew Collection

I haven't posted about my beloved J.Crew in a while now. Primarily because I didn't want you to think I am obsessed (even though I am slightly!). But you really must checkout their new Spring collections - so very nice. A mix of nautical influences mixed with brights and's simply lovely. Have a look at their premier line -  J.Crew Collection here. And have a swoon at the rest of the site while you're at it; they ship here now so it's no longer out of reach!
