IM BLOWN AWAY .. I am literally amazed on how much information I have taken away my mind is on fire right...
Like seriously I was never one to sit and listen more thinking what I'm doing on a Friday ...
But I could not stop watching listening and learning ....
I know my WHY and I know what I have to do ..
I meet some lovely ladies from Southampton which we are in talk of doing an event ..
YES I SAID MY OWN EVENT IM BUZZING ...
The doors just keep on opening and making me have this fire in my belly I love it ❤️

‪Sunday night already?! 😭I could have sworn it was Friday night again! 😭Well, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 😊 ‪I instantly fell in love with this cute, little bag when I saw it at the Press show in London a few weeks ago. I probably won’t be able to fit a lot of stuff into it, but hey ... who cares? It feels good to go out without carrying the weight of the world. 😉👌😉 It’s also available in dark pink/burgundy, and comes with a strap, so you can wear it cross-body.‬

This will be my one and only empty today I think. It's spot on at what it's designed to do...plenty of bubbles and cuts through grease as it should.

Saw this aqua towel with stars on and just had to buy it for my downstairs cloakroom! I love stars and any shade of turquoise as you can see.

HELL FOR LEATHER. Actually, just a grey crew-neck jumper, some grey tights, and trainers. Fancy/un-fancy. See also, sequinned skirt/polo neck. This is another outfit from last week, before my photographer cruised off (flew, really) to Russia.

As comfortable as they are stylish,these ankle boots instantly elevate everyday outfits.

Have a lovely Funday😉

I’m the furthest thing from a film maker...🎥😂🙈 But I’ve had a little time to relax and think of the best way to show you how things #reality have been looking in the Aberdeen St. Nicolas store this week.  I felt it was a nice idea to pull together a wee video...This part is called the “MAD DASH”. 🏃🏽‍♀️💨
.
While there are still gaps in areas in the Christmas Giftshop 🎄we wait with anticipation for more Christmas products to arrive.  I’ll keep you all posted as and when they do!🎁
.
🙋🏽‍♀️The Womenswear department is really coming together, and I genuinely feel that the the M&S designs are at a true turning point for the better. 💯🔥 I’m seriously blown away by lots of the current season products, I hope you are too.💥👌🏽
.
Please leave a comment below and let me know if you like videos like these.  It would be my pleasure to make more of them for you if the majority say yes. 🆗

3 Cheers for some amazing #TEAMWORK by all! 🥳 Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend. ❤️

Hey Grandma, you know you LOVE guacamole...? 🏳️‍🌈 😅-
-
This LGBT sandwich from @marksandspencer divided opinion when it was launched last month. -
-
It's sales raised £10,000 for the Albert Kennedy Trust, an LGBT+ youth charity 🌈-
-
So it seems a pretty great idea to me... 🤔-
-
What do you think?

As a departure from my usual posting on social media, I wanted to share a design project that I’ve been working on for one of my retail clients, M&S, which is now available only in Marks & Spencer’s stores. ‘Marlowe’ is a variation of what I do in the studio but to an industry brief with a few tweaks, the rails around the rim reference 40s utility ware & are a good way to capture the coloured translucent glaze so that it pools. & It still reflects the currency of what I make by hand in the studio.

Hope you like it😉

When I went to the M&S press day a few weeks ago, what stood out the most was the amazing choice of coats they had coming in for A/W. I was salivating at the array of wools, checks, cocoon, belted and padded coats they were showcasing. The quality of them is so good and the style and silhouettes were all so modern and classic meaning they'll last for years to come. As well as the coats, M&S have some incredible other pieces so I thought, why not do an edit of coats using all M&S products - so here you go! Can you believe all of these amazing pieces are from M&S? 
Head over to my liketoknow.it page to shop the items. Link in profile.
.
.
N.B. In order to be completely transparent, M&S have gifted me two pieces in exchange for the edit.

The responses on here to @marksandspencer #bosombuddies campaign have justifiably been one of anger. If they want to do good, let’s hope they are listening to them all. To quote Gayle Sulkik on breast cancer being commodified as a ‘trendy social cause’, “The commercialization of breast cancer has contributed a lighthearted approach to awareness and advocacy...This trivializes breast cancer and limits our ability to comprehend what it’s really like to face the disease, live with medical uncertainty, and accept the difficult realities of risk, recurrence, treatment, and even death.”
With kind permission, here are two of said responses that we hope M&S (and other corporations) take note of for the future. 
Via @justjuggling: “@marksandspencerfashionpr soz mate you seem to have made a mistake in your ads. THIS is cancer. Behold my “front bottom” this was “ gifted” to me kindly by ovarian cancer, and the wonderful range of treatments I enjoyed. Don’t get me wrong I’m grateful to be alive, but your twee celeb/instafluencer ridden schmaltz infuriates. There’s too many cancers, support them all! Don’t pay models, celebs and instafamous folk (who I sincerely hope donate their 30 pieces of silver to charity) pay real women who are living with this nightmare. I’m reminded daily by my scars, bizarrely more by those on the inside these days of what it took, what it left..... and my bikini days are definitely behind me, and this is one of the bravest things I’ve done, but if it makes some difference and stops companies and people cashing in. So be it. It ain’t pink, it ain’t glittery it ain’t instafamous it ain’t a “shoot” we can enjoy...... THIS IS CANCER. *apologies for the picture....”
Via @emplus4: “Do you see anything pink and fluffy here? I don’t. I simply see a broken, petrified and seriously unwell woman. A single mum of four. Three of them tiny babies. I didn’t feel sexy or glossy or bosom focused on this day nine years ago. And I certainly wasn’t giving much thought to who my ‘bosom buddies’ were. I simply wanted to stay alive. As I do now, dealing with my third diagnosis. Maybe it’s time for a rethink? @fashiontargetsbreastcancer @marksandspencer”
