After the technical debacle of last week (I couldn’t even log in to my shiny new blog let along publish the post that had so patiently been waiting to go live!) I’m finally back up and running – but playing serious catch up. There is quite a lot going on at the shop at the moment with the start of a new season and deliveries appearing all the time. This inevitably means a change around, but Ailie and I seem to have mastered the art of furniture shifting whilst the shop is open and have it down to fine art now (that’s what we think anyway!). There’s also a small matter of a five year old’s party to organise for later on in the week!

With such a big gap since I’ve blogged properly, I thought I’d share what I’ve been up to over the past few months…


James turned 40 and we took to the skies for a flying lesson. He loved it. I felt sick.


Ailie and I went to Paris for a buying trip for Hero. It was freezing and mostly wet but we loved pacing the streets for inspiration and finding new, exciting brands to have at Hero.


I got me a fringe! I needed a change and since I’d gone short last year (which I loved) I thought I’d give a fringe a go. I went back to see Lottie at George Northwood and although it took a few hours to get used to, I’ve loved it ever since. I’m back next week for the compulsory fringe trim but for time being, it’s definitely staying.

 Last month I was interviewed by the lovely Marlene from Chocolate Cookies and Candies blog about life as a mum and opening the shop. You can read the interview here.

Now to get back to the balloon blowing and party bag filling. Have a great week,

    I love your fringe too Laura. How on earth do you find the time to run a shop, write a blog, look after your family and remain so stylish. I’m in awe! x

    I don’t know how you do it all, Laura! Hats off to you – you’re an inspiration. I love the fringe, it’s looks fabulous, and what a lovely interview – I really MUST come and visit you at Hero one day and say a proper hello! xx
