London Retro Eyewear: A Glasses Direct Review

The first thing my mum did when I turned up to lunch in my lovely new glasses from London Retro at Glasses Direct was nudge my dad hard. “Who does Alice look like?” she kept asking him. Apparently my Nanna Elfreda’s legacy lives on not just in Elfie’s name but in my new glasses too, […]…


Epanoui Jewellery, Self-Employment and Cake

Wrists Don’t Get Fat: Bracelets

I have previously written on this blog about how frustrating it is to go shopping as a pregnant woman. There are always beautiful clothes you want to buy that won’t fit over the bump and you don’t know how big your boobs or even your arse will be after you’ve given birth. It took me […]…
