It's all about the snood*

*the name snood comes from a cross of 'scarf' and  'hood'
Fed up of trailing scarf ends that seem to need to be constantly thrown over your shoulder, only to have them creeping back round 15 minutes later?  You need a snood, a simple loop of snuggly warmth to drape around your neck. Like warm cuddle that keeps on giving.
I love this Cashmere one from duffy but if you can’t afford the £125 price tag why not make your own out of our Milano jersey, this fabric drapes so perfectly you will want one in every colour!

Are you ready to join the pyjama party?

Everybody who is anybody is rocking the new just got out of bed look. No, not messy hair and last night’s make-up, this time round it is far cooler and more sophisticated than before.
We are talking flowing silk pyjamas preferably with a pattern all over, from traditional paisley and checks (Stella McCartney, Jil Sander) and simple polka dots (Jonathan Saunders) to wild zebra prints (No 21) and mixed up patterns (Antonio Marras, Clements Ribeiro)
What could be more comfortable and effortlessly stylish than drawstring trousers and a loose top?
For those who cannot survive without heels add a pair of platform sandals for all others it has to be a pair of slippers

If you can't wait till this trend hits the high street be ahead of the bed crowd and make you own with these Hot Patterns Boudoir of Bliss Bel-Air Lounging Pyjamas
Go for a sexy Rio crepe backed satin for evening wear
or a dramatic patterned Tolouse cotton lawn for cool day time chic
So what are you waiting for, slip out of bed and into something more comfortable.......
