My name is Donna and I live in Surrey, England. I have 3 children and a husband. Predictable much!
When I was growing up I loved all things beauty, but I lacked a Mother who shared my passion. As Plato says "Necessity is the Mother of all Invention" and so I began to read up on everything style related. My passion grew from there. I devoured Trinny and Susannah in the 90's, Rachel Zoe in the early 2000's and blogs after that.
This blog is a collection of everything that works for me, and being a lazy and Northern kind of girl, it focuses on things that work without taking forever or costing too much.
I'm not really into "fashion" but I love style, and finding out how I can make things work for me. I love dressed down looks and clothes that can be worn on an everyday basis while doing the school run and going for coffee. I like looking put together but not like I spent ages getting to that point (well only occasionally).

I write honest reviews and never post positively about products that suck just because I got them for free. I feel this would do both my readers and the brands a disservice. Around 50% of the products mentioned on the blog are PR samples but I don't flag everyone as such, as I don't treat them any differently than if I had paid with my own cash.
