It’s seconds away from May and the promise of a fabulous Summer is on the horizon (OK it snowed this week but we’re ignoring that) with payday around the corner I’ve been compiling a Summer wish list ready for holidays, a fun social calendar and well, just because! I’m known in fabulous for my colour aversion but something has happened this season and my eye is drawn to vibrant palettes and busy prints. I love the combination of bright flora and forna in watercolour strokes and neon shades, I’ve decided I’m a convert – and I’m calling it paradise prints, because I’m not a ‘floral’ person!
On my lust list…
It all started with this watch from Ice – I love it!
Paradise Ice Watch, £79.95 from fabulous
Then after wondering what the brands from my teen years were up to, I re-visited Warehouse, and boy am I glad I did. My wedding guest wardrobe will solely be from them this year as well as many a holiday outfit!
Silk Floral Print Dress, £95 from Warehouse
We’ve been working with our friends from Mercy this season, and we love their Druzy Rocks collection. I love the lustre of the crystals, they’re the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your look and the beautiful card they come on looks great in my jewellery box!
Druzy Rocks Necklace, £24 from fabulous
There’s no better way to brighten up your bedroom than a fabulous set of bedding (you know you’re getting older when a duvet cover is as exciting as a new pair of shoes!) I love this one from BHS, £65 for Superking
Happy Friday Tropical Bedding Set, £65 from BHS

We took one jumper dress from h&m (a bargain at just £19.99) and styled it with five different looks from fabulous. So whatever you’re up to this week there’s fabulous look for you!

“When I’m dressed smartly or heading out for dinner, I love my CK Equal watch in Rose Gold, as it’s a stylish watch with an art deco look, that works well for a more dressy occasion. I’ve got several pieces of Rose Gold jewellery now, which go really well with this design.”
“For a more casual look, I’ve got one of last year’s bestselling Radley watches – the cream leather strap with the cut-out Scottie Dog on the face, in pinks and lilacs. It’s a great look that combines a fun design with Summer colours, perfect for this time of year.”
“Whenever I can, I head down to Cornwall for a weekend, to enjoy the relaxed feeling of life by the sea. We enjoy heading out on a speedboat for a few hours, anchoring up at a waterside pub, and generally taking it easy. I haven’t yet got the perfect watch for this, but the new Ice Slims with their silicon straps and 100m water resistance would be great for when I’m jumping on and off the boat, tying us up to moorings. The Sky Blue Pink one is on my must-buy-for-Summer list!”
