Hi, my name is Kate and I am a shopaholic.  I don’t even try and hide this fact anymore. I love nothing more than a wander around the shops (child free if you’re offering, thanks) a few coffee pitstops, a bit of lunch and maybe even a sneaky Aperol Spritz.  Living the life.  But, since I am very rarely child free, online shopping has become my second best friend. It will never replace the joy of actual shopping, but it comes a close second that’s…

But I do love a good bag,…

Philip Kingsley has saved my hair. A bold statement I know, but it is, without doubt, 100% true and there was no other way for me to start this post that with that sentence.  Earlier this year I noticed that my hair was falling out, by the handful, when I washed it and while I was brushing it after washing.
