Working It

Dolly Parton sang it best in 1980: “workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’”. Well, it beats reading the Beano. Some things (scarily) haven’t changed since then. Drinking copious amounts of coffee, never ending spreadsheets, the stressful morning commute to the corner office, (okay, desk – but one day!), we still hit a red light running five minutes late, there’s a ladder in the tights and wait,

90’s favourite and go-to for tricky transeasonal dressing, the floral bomber jacket is proving it’s worth this season. Never mind that we just love a bit of botanical-inspired embroidery, this also has a touch of the ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’ which means it really does tick all the boxes.

It’s not rubbing salt

I Can’t Stop Drinking The Coffee

“I can’t stop drinking the coffee. I stop drinking the coffee, I stop doing the standing and the walking and the words putting into the sentence doing.” – Lorelai Gilmore It’s not hard to find a coffee spot in Ballymena. It is just a teensy bit harder to find somewhere that’s up to par. You see, being caffeine fiends, we are practically experts when it comes to knowing what’s good and

How To: French Riviera Chic

Everyone’s heading to France this week for some sort of sporting event. While we do enjoy watching fit sportsmen running around in shorts (no shame here) we are much more excited about the prospect of a brief sojourn in the South of France. The French Riviera, otherwise known as the playground of the rich and famous, is the perfect place to sport a Breton and some culottes. If not there, then where? Don’t
