You’re never fully dressed without a smile!


This is a motto I truly believe – in fact I have it on my Twitter profile and have it written on a decorative sign in my hallway as a reminder to the kids that whatever life throws at you, if you can find something to smile about you’ll always feel better!

However, my saying came to life this week as my gorgeous 13 year old daughter took on the lead role in the musical Annie. She has been rehearsing since before Christmas and every spare moment we’ve had has been running her lines and singing the songs, so it was great to see all her hard work come to fruition. It was quite a transformation to see her as Annie as there I was looking at my short haired, curly, red-headed daughter!

I was so proud of her, and she was quite fabulous so I thought I must share the picture with you. I love the musical Annie and we’ve now booked to see Miranda Hart in the West End version in the summer which I’m really looking forward to.

I felt quite summery this week, with the lovely weather and all the gorgeous spring fashion that’s around. In fact, if you feel like treating yourself to something gorgeously summery and colourful, look no further than the Lola Rose Today’s Special Value which will be available all day Tuesday at a stunning price. Jewellery designer Nikki Gerwitz first created Lola Rose in 2000, and her collection has gone from strength to strength.

Nikki has a flair for colour and her use of the finest semi-precious stones is so artistic. The latest offer features an adjustable long line necklace and comes in six beautiful colours. I honestly can’t decide which my favourite is, I’m loving the Mocha but then the Pink Ice, with the brand new Marshmallow quartzite stone, has really caught my eye too.

Nikki’s philosophy with her Lola Rose collection has always been to offer her ladies affordable luxury, and with a Today’s Special Value price it’s worth treating yourself to a fantastic piece from one of the UK’s leading fashion jewellery brands. Fresh, colourful and distinctive, I wonder which colour will catch your eye, and if you are looking for a little something to go with your new jewellery, did you know that there are always bargains to be had online at a last clicks price?

Every so often I go online and pop ‘last clicks’ in the search bar and it brings up everything at affordable prices with many fashion items up for grabs. It’s definitely worth getting into the habit of checking to see what’s available every week and get your spring fashion look for a fraction of the price!

Take care,

    JIlly, what do you use on your beautiful hair. I have hair similar length and thickness as yours and would love to have curls that stay put! I’ve noticed recently you are curling yours in such a nice way and it stays. What do you use please?
    Love reading your blogs on here , you always make me smile!!
    Take care x
