The Perfect First Date Outfit

Haven’t we all stood there an hour or two before a date night and wracked our brains about what to wear.  Isn’t it ten times worse deciding what to wear before a first date than the usual dilemma? Going through our wardrobes thinking it’s too short, it’s too long, it shows too much, it shows too little; the endless pros …

The Jungle Book

It was only a few months ago I went to watch the Jungle Book with my son  at the cinema, which led to a light bulb moment to abandon another Italian summer and book a trip to the jungle!  The idea of monkey forests, rice fields, leafy tropical landscapes and yummy Indonesian food set me on a frenzy to get …

Reasons And Seasons

I have been blessed with good friends and I truly feel that people cross our paths are for a reason, a season, or a lesson. This was the case in Berlin earlier this year. I decided to book a ticket at Premium, a European Fashion Fair exhibiting all the latest and greatest brands, both established and up and coming. Premium …

A Day In The Suburbs

On a recent trip to Mumbai I spent a Saturday exploring the suburbs. The suburbs in Mumbai are a little different to what we would usually think of as a suburb. Mumbai has beautiful dairy districts, with countryside reminiscent of Devon, England and little fishing villages which are as pretty as any in a holiday brochure. Multi-coloured homes sit perched …

Metamorphosis

I write this while taking a break from putting together a new women’s ready to wear collection titled “Metamorphosis”.  Some of the fabrics need to be re-dyed as the dyer got a little carried away with the red and didn’t add enough of the black! For the last few years, following my divorce I too have entered a state of …

A Different Kind of Lesson

At school I never quite fitted in. Even my uniform didn’t quite meet the fashionable requirements nor was I particularly popular. I was happy in my own world, happy in the library and even happier in the art studio. I didn’t need anyone other than Jane Eyre, Emily Bronte or Marc Chagall. They were my heroes. Painting and reading fulfilled …

Small Steps

I think there are plenty of wonderful stylish bloggers out there that share what is on trend, how to wear it, and then add their sometimes brilliant takes on fashion. My blog is a little different. As much as I love clothes, interiors, art and style I think nothing ever feels or looks good unless the wearer is happy. We …

A Morning’s Run

It can be quite comical how some things start or how a train of thought can lead us to something. I like to go running to clear my mind and process my thoughts. It’s a form of meditation for me. So early one December morning I went for my usual run and started to think about an upcoming trip to …

Clothes do not make a man

It’s not easy being divorced, a mother, working full time and trying to follow a calling, a passion and craving something significant. It’s lonely and at the same time wonderful. I don’t want to settle, to compromise and live a life without truly living. Yet at the same time, I look at my son and I know that as much …

Constellation

I was told by a wise old woman at a very young age to use my hands. I thought it was an odd thing to say. But then she explained. “Ranna, to have a happy heart always use your creativity and use your hands, to make, paint, and design a life you love”. This stayed with me for many years …
