TREND: BOLD FLORALS

Spring is on the horizon (honest!), and with the promise of longer days and warmer temperatures comes a new set of style rules - helping to make the transition from Winter's cosy cocoon of coats and tights just a little more exciting. As is typical of Spring fashion, catwalks have been decorated with floral fancies - except this time they're packing more of a punch. Yep, for S/S '15 it's all about bold florals. Think vibrance. Think colour. Think bold and busy patterns reminiscent of Liberty London and 70s styling. Whether it's a tropical explosion or a vintage smattering, the rule of bold florals is simple: the bigger and more colourful, the better. The brave will dive straight in, pairing bright floral trousers with a matching jacket to echo their vibrant confidence, and top it all off with bold floral accessories to boot. Attention-grabbing paradise earrings will take you straight to Brazil and have you giving off seriously chic flower power vibes.

Acrylic Paradise Earrings - £24

For those who want to dodge any risk of looking like a walking greenhouse, a pair of floral earrings will complement your bright Spring-time glow without over-egging the pudding. Opt for a 3D version with crystals for an injection of glamour.

Daisy Resin Earrings - £7.50

Heritage Rose Earrings - £24

  Or if you're more of a wallflower and prefer the classic look, you can't go far wrong with gold hues and subtle shapes. Simply layer over a white shirt for a fast fash update on your day-to-day style.

The Ultimate DIY Mother's Day Hamper

As you may have heard us mention a few times, Mother’s day is very fast approaching. For those who haven’t quite got around to it yet (eek pull your finger out), now is the time to turn your mind to one of the women you love the most. This year, instead of the half wilted flowers and slightly rubbish card, why not go for something a little bit special with the ultimate DIY Mother's Day Hamper. This is something you could even do with your own little ones on a rainy afternoon with little else for entertainment.  The Photo Album We all know how much Mum’s love to wander back down memory lane with the aid of a sentimental photo album. Find or buy a notebook and get creative! You can cover with sequins, make glitter hearts or even get funky with some florescent paint! Pull together some silly photos of you both from years gone by, and with a little bit of prit stick, some page decor and some cheeky annotations, you have yourself a cheap yet charming home made photo album. The Biscuits Because which Mummy doesn’t have a sweet tooth? Baking a batch of biscuits is a lovely and simple task that will leave your house smelling gorgeous and will be a lovely home-made treat to accompany Mummy’s afternoon cuppa! Wait for them to cool before putting into a clear cellophane bag and finishing with a ribbon. Here’s a recipe for some exceptionally scrummy custard and white chocolate biscuits! The Necklace that Says it all Although time’s run out to order a bespoke piece, there’s still just about time to really show her you love her with one of Anna Lou’s ‘Love you’ pieces. This necklace is one of our favourites. The Decoration Cover an old shoe box in wrapping paper (you knew you’d use it one day!), plump up with some tissue paper and fill with your goodies! The perfect Mother’s Day Hamper from the perfect daughter!
