I'm off to France

Picture by Andy Key

Spending a few days in France before the end of summer, including some time in Paris. I plan on spending most of the time skipping around in a pink dress and singing 'Moi je joue' whilst buying flowers and eating tartes aux fraises.

Normal blogging will hopefully resume when I get back. I have no excuse for my lack of updates recently other than that i appear to be writing a novel and it's very distracting.

Au revoir! x

I Want It! People Tree Cycling Mini Dress

The Olympics may be over, but its legacy still lives on throughout the UK, and hopefully the rest of the world too. It has been a lovely two weeks, with a universal sense of camaraderie spreading throughout the nation, and I'm rather sad that it's now all over. that's why I went hunting for something to remember it by, and since I wasn't that keen on the official merchandise, I had to find something a little more individual.

I like this mini dress because it's really casual - I can imagine maybe wearing it with a pair of shorts while I cycle from place to place. But you could also wress it up a little for a party. It's also recognisably got a reference to the Olympics on it, but it's not too obvious, so you can just enjoy the excellent design.

And finally, as the icing on the cake, it is from People Tree (currently £28) so has been fairly traded and the cotton is organic. Fantastic.
