London Fashion Week is always spectacular, but you know it’s truly something special when you have Queen Elizabeth II sat in the front row! She attended the Richard Quinn show, but which other shows got everyone talking?

Here’s a rundown of our favourite catwalks from the event:
On Day Two, Burberry brought colour to the catwalk! Fusing stand-out shades onto contemporary casual wear, Burberry retained its image as a forward-thinking, urban brand.
Key pieces that caught our eye included blush-pink sweaters, scarlet jackets and chunky lemon jumpers. For an extra splash of colour, Burberry showcased rainbow sparkles and multi-coloured gilets. This was creative director Christopher Bailey’s final show for Burberry, and he dedicated his last collection to: “the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ rights around the world”. Once most famous for its traditional beige checks and trench coats, Burberry’s intelligent use of colour and drive for hyper-modern street wear and athleisure clothing has made it one of London Fashion Week’s standout shows.
How can you get Burberry’s catwalk look? Start by choosing bright colours and bold prints. Select contemporary athleisure styles — such as bomber jackets and oversized sweatshirts — and never shy away from check prints and the streamlined silhouette of a vintage trench coat.

It’s my turn today to share with you my thoughts on Here Comes Hercules, book one in the Hopeless Heroes series. For this blog tour, myself and fellow bloggers will be sharing our reviews, featuring guest posts from the author Stella Tarakson and answering tag questions.
Before I share my thoughts here is a little bit about Here Comes Hercules.
Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for the Fairvale Ladies Book Club. I suppose what drew me to this book was the clever use of the words “book club” in the title. Set around the late 1970’s in The Northern Territory. It was a different read to anything I’ve read before, but first here is a little about The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club by Australian author Sophie Green.
When it comes to cooking, there’s a whole host of recipes out there that will detail exactly how and where to find the best quality ingredients as well as taking you step by step through the entire process that goes into making a delicious dish. But when’s the last time that you saw much detail going into the equipment that you use?
Sure, you might be told to “chop”, “mix”, or “fry”, but what with? Believe it or not, the tools that you use really can make as large a contribution to the success or failure of any meal as the ingredients or cooking techniques that you opt for.
So, let’s take a quick look through some essential kitchen accessories that you need to invest in to make a triumph of anything you produce!
PoundToy are a website that specialises in kids toys. Their prices are guaranteed to beat the high street. So when they got in touch asking if we wanted to try out their website and of course go shopping we jumped at the challenge.
There are many toys and games to browse through. Toys for different ages are categorised in appropriate age brackets and also brands. So if you are looking for Fireman Sam toys you can go straight to that section. I know the website is called PoundToy, but the prices range all the way from 30p right up to toys £20+.
They also sell party supplies like party bag fillers, toys and fancy dress costumes. So a great alternative if you are planning birthday parties.
You can pop over here to see what we bought on our shopping haul at PoundToy.
