Where I'd Rather Be Umbrella Review...


Earlier this week I was excited to be sent a beautiful umbrella from Where I'd Rather Be to try out and review.

I love to listen to the rhythm of the falling rain hitting the windows, when it is cold outside and you are all cosy inside. I am not a fan of being caught outside in rain though! Now though if I ever am, I can be caught in style with this beautiful umbrella.

Last week I got to share all their 8 designs over on my fashion blog here. what better time to try it out, pouring with rain and windy outside. Like most people I would avoid the rain if possible, sometimes though needs must.

Not knowing which design I would be sent I was pleased to receive my favourite design ~ Life's a beach folding umbrella.





About my umbrella~

Where I'd Rather Be, offers a visually captivating collection of umbrellas so you can imaging your somewhere else. With world first 360° under canopy photo designs to help us Brits escape the wet UK winter.
  • Double layer canopy with quick dry, water repellent coating.
  • 100% electroplated steel frame and shaft. 
  • Invert & revert from wind without damage.
  • Manual open/close.
  • Non-slip matte black handle with elasticised wristband.
  • Compact umbrella case
  • Umbrella height when open 57cm, folded & closed length 29cm.
  • Canopy diameter 99cm .
  • 360 design .
  • Wind resistance.
  • Quick dry.
  • Quality construction.
  • £3.99 for Express Delivery (1 to 2 business days) within UK.
  • £27.99 for the folding umbrella (the one I reviewed) 
  • £29.99 for the classic umbrellas.
 There is 8 designs to choose from with just one question~ Where Would You Rather Be?













The umbrella is made with really high quality material. Double layer with a lovely design on the inside and plain black material on the top. The first day I used it the wind was so bad it blew my umbrella inside out, no problem here though. I just folded it up and opened it again. Perfect and no damage, (every other umbrella this has happened to before usually breaks) Not with my Where I'd Rather Be umbrella as it is Invert & revert from wind without damage. I think this one is really going to last the distance.

I think this would make a lovely present for Christmas.

Christmas Jumpers From Bonmarche Review...

A few weeks ago I was kindly asked by Bonmarche if I would like to review some clothing from their website. The first thought that sprang to mind, was how my Grandma loved this shop. When she was alive we used to go on a regular shopping trips. We could never pass Bonmarche without calling in, so she could pick out something new to wear.  


When I read the email I wondered if they would sell anything for my age group? Thinking back to when my Grandma shopped here, she would often ask me if I would like anything, but at the time there was never really anything I liked.

Taking a look at their website before I decided to do the review and these sweet Christmas jumpers were the first things I noticed. Then I had a look through all their other clothing. Wow what a transformation from what I remember there were plenty of things I liked and would love to wear!  As I say the jumpers caught my attention straight away, but I also had my eye on some David Emanuel beautiful designed party dresses too. (Just in case Santa is reading!)


The first item I wore is this fun penguin jumper, so adorable!?! Designed wearing his ear muffs and scarf on. This jumper is so cosy, warm and so much fun to wear. I can guess it will go with loads of things in my wardrobe.

About the jumper

  • Fun and exciting just in time for Christmas are our launch of Novelty jumpers. 
  • Indulge in a bit of festive cheer to entertain the whole family. 
  • These make great cosy warm presents for a touch of fun
  • . Designed with a drop shoulder fit to be flattering to all.
  • Length: 63cm
  • Product Care: Machine Washable
  • Material: 98% Acrylic 2% Polyester
  • Sizes S,M,L,XL,XS
  • Price £20.00


The next day I wore this one. Aww this reindeer jumper is just so cute. I'm thinking this will look great with everything too especially grey joggers!?! and pencil skirts.

About the reindeer jumper

My thoughts

I just love these jumpers. So sweet, warm cosy and unbelievably adorable. I picked size small as I am a size 10 and this size fits perfect. I am so glad Bonmarche got in touch with me as I would have usually walked straight by their stores. As I thought they were not my age group and style of clothes. Not any more I am popping down to my local store this week to go and check out their in-store party range.


Which one do you like best?

My Perfect Christmas Dinner with Family Outfit...


A few weeks ago Marisota asked me if I would like to style some clothes for the perfect event this Christmas. I love a nights out, shopping trips and visiting family and the best day of the year for me is Christmas day. I love to spend this day with all my beautiful family. Our eldest son home from university, the children all home together. Perfect. My favourite day of the whole year.


My Perfect Christmas Day would go something like this...

All kids awake, all deny they woke up first, all deny they woke anyone else up. Ok then all up check Santa's sherry drunk carrot for reindeer eaten. Living room door open squeals, shrieks, minutes of shaking Santa has been!!All corners of room taken up by one of our children's presents. Quick breakfast washed down with tin of chocolates and mince pie. (not the whole tin).

Phone up family, wish them a Happy Christmas. Hope they had a lie in, and have had a nice morning.

Quick check all presents have been opened. Me and daughter get dressed up, nice dress the more sparkles the better. Glittery shoes or this year sandals on and a little bit of ruby red lipstick. Remember Turkey is not in oven, quickly dash to start it off.

A glass of wine for the cook when making dinner, perfect start to the day. Big dinner with all the trimming, eek.. Brussels sprouts all-round!! A few hours later it is time to eat again, grandma and granddad is coming for tea...
