NEW BLOG POST - Rained off
Kicking the week off with a pretty basic rainy day look and feeling wholly uninspired by this weather…
Did you catch the first look at our new home?
So it seems a mid-century, colonial, boho mashup is my interiors jam right now with a touch of quirky animal themed pieces thrown in for good measure...

NEW BLOG POST - Ball gowns every day
When you buy what can only be described as a gown, because it’s just too pretty with its big obi bow and its chopped up hem, and you want to get a bit of mileage from it…

Don't mind me... just off to TK Maxx in search of a winning snowglobe...

NEW BLOG POST - Post baby fitness - what works for me
On my belly button's permanent state of confusion, finally getting a damn good sports bra and, at 4 months on, what's working for me...
With Panache Lingerie
H o m e ✨ Spent all weekend in the front room after sanding the old grimy floorboards and FINALLY hanging this beaut of a light - after two months with a naked bulb dangling from the ceiling and a looong search during which I eventually had to concede that our new ceilings could not accommodate a 1.2m drop light, I found this beauty at Cotterell & Co when I popped in for a shade for a table lamp (I fell in love and managed to convince them to unwire it from their own ceiling because I just couldn’t wait 10 days for it to get ordered in 🙈)
NEW BLOG POST - When all that's left of ERDEMxHM is the socks
When all that’s left of the ERDEMxH&M collab is the socks… and you gotta buy them because you’re such a sucker for the marketing that £25 for a couple pairs of socks seems completely reasonable...

It’s happening again… my closet has been pulled to pieces, my front room has been ensconced in a mountain of clothes, shoes and bags (sooooo many bags), everything has been priced and tagged somewhere between £2 and £80 – I mean, heck, my mum even had the iron out…

NEW BLOG POST - Home tour - the family room
Welcome home. I never thought that this move would be ‘the move’, the forever home, but one room complete and it feels so right, you know? After our offer was accepted (ok, actually way before then), we were pouring over the Rightmove images and had a plan for this room (which was a burgundy dining room) if nothing else...
S u n d a y H a n g s 🍂 Loitering outside our fav brunch spot waiting for a table... | Because contrary to how it always seems to appear in my stories, it is in fact VERY busy
NEW BLOG POST - Party twins
Imagine two friends shopping TK Maxx's extra big party delivery for a little birthday night out. And somehow, without a hint as to what the other has chosen, we end up twinning. That is true friendship right there...
NEW BLOG POST - On slogan tees... and that email about my teeth
I think the title just about sums it up...
Sorry for the baby spam but I literally could not be more in love (it’s true what they say) and this wee face in that hat is just too much…

NEW BLOG POST - Playdate
Just the two of us, on an autumn playdate, crunching through those leaves, twinning in that colour...
Sidenote - these are the first ever pleather leggings I have owned and they are seriously good - like not too shiny, perfectly high waisted flattering fit, less than £30 good (just goes to show why you should never say never) - Shop them here - http://rstyle.me/iA-n/cs4hidm5ue_
The new Jo Malone London cologne, English Oak and Redcurrant, I mean that scent just sums up a whole season...

NEW BLOG POST - Getting the Luxe Oil treatment
Post baby hair and breaking out of the topknot funk with mega watt shine hair thanks to Sassoon Salon Luxe Oil treatment...
N e w D o ✨ Got my hair did... | Yesterday I got my hair done Sassoon Salon for the first time in 4 1/2 months and when I got home the husband already had potato dauphinois prepared to go in the oven and steaks to go on the griddle so I got all dressed up (well, with slippers, but still) and we lit the fire in this new home of ours and drank wine and had a good ol' proper date night while the baba slept upstairs and the dogs lay by the hearth and it felt goooood...

T h e J u g g l e 📷🍼 Today is gonna be one of THOSE days I just know it... Taking Hunter for his second set of vaccinations this morning which I am absolutely dreading (last time we both cried), then leaving him with my mum while I walk the dogs before heading into town to shoot with the husband at lunchtime, then the plan is to find a nice quiet spot to put the finishing touches on my presentation for this evening's blogging and social media event with Cultural Enterprise Office (last few tickets avail here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/like-tweet-post-social-media-blogging-for-creatives-tickets-38536638122) which kicks off at 5pm... I have NO CLUE what I'm wearing and there's about a 50/50 chance I'll have brushed my hair | Ph. Julie Vance Photography
NEW BLOG POST - Warm spice
The coat, in my opinion, to end the search for the perfect AW coat. The colour is actually called ‘warm spice’ and if this season could be embodied by a colour this, surely, is it. The fit is honestly amazing and the quality is as good as any designer coat you could hope to get your mitts on. And it’s a classic but still has those details, you know? Jigsaw do good coat...

NEW BLOG POST - Practical mum purchase
Surely fine knit over the knee sock boots are something I’ll get a heck of a lotta wear out of as a new mum? When not out on unreasonably fashionable country walks with pram and dogs, their uses are virtually endless – lay empty sock boot around baby’s neck as a bib, craft sock boot puppets, wine bottle holders, arm warmers with stiletto weapon attachment, Christmas stockings… ENDLESS. Money well spent. Obviously.
NEW BLOG POST - Underneath it all
On embarrassing the brother-in-law, body changes and finding my fit with Panache Lingerie...
NEW BLOG POST - Dressing up undressed walls
After last week’s casual confessions it only seemed fair that I dress these Ottoman Hands jewels up a little, you know, make an effort, just for me… and my walls...
NEW BLOG POST - Cliché http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/09/hm-mustard-jumper/
In search of autumn leaves to really bring out the colour of my eyes, eh correction, jumper…
NEW BLOG POST - Elevating the everyday with Ottoman Hands
If you’re looking for me you can find me swanning around my half decorated home dripping in gold. And a t-shirt.
NEW BLOG POST - Few words Friday
This dress, on repeat… over jeans, under jumpers and just on her own. Who’da thunk I’d be a floral midi dress kinda girl? Maybe it’s a country thing…
NEW BLOG POST - One of those weeks
Just two things – these lace up sleeves are rocking my world and these sneakers have rose gold hardware, rose gold I tell ya, beautiful. Well done MINT VELVET, you’re more on the ball than me...

NEW BLOG POST - Big red
Oh man, fall is here. Or autumn… instagram americanisms are permeating my impressionable mind. The air is cooler and the leaves are turning. And we could be woeful about the end of summer OR we could embrace the red and the chunky knits and the copious hot chocolates on the horizon...

NEW BLOG POST - Blank canvas - adding personality
The thing about moving into a new home is that it can take time to feel like ‘you’... Adding personality and warmth with details from TK Maxx who have an extra big delivery of lighting across Scotland and online right now (so I'm living out my Barbados colonial interior dreams)...
Question : If I owned seven pairs of denim dungarees would that be too many?

NEW BLOG POST - Keepers
In some ways it seems kinda crazy to do a newborn shoot when we have a great camera and no doubt will take 1,045,802 photos of Hunter (before his first birthday)… but I wanted some keepers. So I did what any millennial would do and I googled. I found Julie Vance Photography. And she nailed it...
NEW BLOG POST - We've moved
We've moved. Not domain name… like an actual real life move. To a proper house. In the country. We are grown ups now...

NEW BLOG POST - Back to basics http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/09/back-to-basics/
Back to basics… stripes and denim. But these stripes are on a new level with ruffle sleeves – like a classic breton, only better...

NEW BLOG POST - Home tour - the living room
The home tour continues… which somehow seems a little strange considering the Thankfifi Home is on the move. But life has been hectic and we got some catching up to do. So first things first, let’s finish this home tour...
6, 7, 8 and 9 months pregnant to 1 month old – I will forever be in awe of women’s bodies, that some of us are lucky enough to grow babies and get them out…
