Polka dots are so in especially transitioning into spring and also easily into summer. They are great for pattern mixing and just to wear with a pair of jeans and flat shoes. This is definitely one to add to your wardrobe.

My question to men now, do you want a get out if jail free card for the months of March, April and May?(Possibly June ). Tired of sleeping on the couch or being in the dog house? If your answer is yes then feel free to proceed and follow instructions set below.

Forget her birthday (3 days in the dog house)

Forget your anniversary (1 week in the dog house)

Forget mothers day? (Call for a young priest and an old priest ) because she is gonna kill your ass 😂😂


Mothers day is a day we love to be celebrated, we just want to hear "you are not doing bad kiddo" because believe it or not we are ALL just winging it in this game of parenthood and trying our best not to fall asleep and mess it all up. Appreciation, recognition, praise and validation is something that not only makes mothers happy, but it just helps us reset and refocus and improve in the task ahead of us (more mother hooding).


When celebrating mothers day, don't take it lightly. It is NOT enough to buy her a present and a card to show appreciation. Go over and beyond, show her she is loved, cherished and put an effort in making the day a very special day for her, also involve the kids in everything you do so they grow up appreciating their wives too.

Ideas on going over and beyond   - Get you kids to make hand made cards and write a letter to mummy, it will melt her heart (extra step- get them to write a poem)   - Breakfast in bed will score you a few points   - You don't have to arrange a mothers day lunch out, I'm personally think it is too crowded and more expensive than usual but arrange lunch/dinner. Order in or rustle up something yourself   - present her with an appreciation gift please nothing generic like perfume unless she specifically asked for it. Dig for info, ask the shop assistant, make that little more effort and give more thought to the gift   - Let her rest up like a queen! Take charge. Take the kids out for a good few hours so she can catch up on sleep. Arrange snacks just in case she wants to Netflix and chill with her own damn self 😂   - Beauty treatments is also a plus and will not go amiss, massage, manicure and pedicure, facials are good ones to book for her   - Buy her flower from the FLORIST!!!!! none of that supermarket flowery nonsense or mail order flowers. Go to the florist and order a nice bunch   - In a few words be everything to her that day, cheerleader, breakfast maker, children sorter, lunch orderer and an example to the kids showing appreciation for mummy. This is a concise list and just a few ideas but you know best how your significant other feels love, make her feel special and let your kiddos see you do this. Send my cheque in the mail will ya? 😂 . Below is a little outline and ideas of last minute gifts that can be purchased so you can still salvage this.

As a colour lover myself and the commander in chief of all colours around the world, I never struggle to wear colour to work but I know some other people need a little nudge of encouragement every now and then. While I would rather show up like this, all majestic fine to my office every damn day, Sometimes I have to dumb it down for people who don't get colour (monsters and ogres). Three ways to incorporate bright colours to work without causing a stir. Wear as a pop of colour. I find shoes always do the trick. All black errthang with a bright fushia pink pair of shoes will look delicious. You can also pair a bright coloured hand bag with a monochrome (black whites or grey) outfit Wear with a white top. For the more adventorous folk. This is actually how I prefer to wearing. A masculine white shirt and bright bottoms. The white top will take some edge off Lastly, use other neutral colours to balance the look. Great colours for this are browns, tan, grey, cream and other similar colours that can seriously put you to sleep forever and ever 😂 As an extra person of colour and mightiness of hues *flips hair* , one way wasn't enough. In my Monday morning burst of positivity I convinced myself to wear two bright colours on my body and confuse my enemies at work 😂. I softened the blow with light grey trousers but no one was going to stop me from wearing these new look baby blue pumps and my embellished sweater (tkmaxx). I was basking in colour heaven all day. Try it and tell me what you think. Until next time buttercups
