Hello Summer

I just love this time of year! I come out of my hibernation feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready for anything! My spring and summer inspiration?? I took inspiration from Prada.

#WhatsCatchingmyEye Summer is here, luckily we made it through the treacherous once a year winter. I never know how we do it.

Now that we will be able […]
