I've just started teaching my seven year old daughter to sew and she loves it! When she's not hand sewing, she's using my old faithful "New Home" [now Janome] machine which was my Mum's old faithful. I'm now lusting after a Bernina Artista 730E Embroidery Machine, but while I'm saving up the £4,000, I think we could have fun making Barbie ballgowns with this mini-sewing machine from John Lewis. I'm a sucker for pillar-box-red home accessories, so much so there's now a ban on red kitchen accessories in our house! It's so cute in retro red. Will Santa deliver?

How was your Halloween? I have spent the last three years living Halloween through my children :-( Daddy is pretty good with the scary face paints wouldn’t you agree?! This year I really wanted to dress up too, so I painted a pretty big bat flying across a moon on my cheek and then realized I’d have to walk to the office on my own after dropping the kids at school and nursery! Let me just say that most of the people I passed that morning seemed to have forgotten it was Halloween.Just to prove our two are adorable under all that freaky face paint!

Yey! How utterly fabulous! I’ve posted the show stopping neckpiece I wore on the day of the panel interview – everyone loved it. I must confess that Lorraine Linton is one of my favourite designers. Her tactile label “Into” is one I drool over. We are now discussing an exclusive capsule collection (picture secretive whispers over a bottle of Shiraz). If you cannot wait, then check out her knitted accessories in the boutique.
Eclectic Shock is really a trend-setter in this genre. What’s not to love when you are getting a one-off piece of jewellery which has been created from antique curios which the designer, Louise, has painstakingly collected from antique markets up and down the country? And they sparkle!
