Recently, and really quite out of the blue, I’ve been considering getting my helix pierced − that’s the outside edge of the earlobe to the uninitiated, not to be confused with the ‘conch’ or ‘daith’ (google them).
To put this in some context, I am, so far, devoid of all piercings bar two grown-over holes I had punched into my lower lobes at local jewellers shop ‘Michelle’s’ circa age 14 − to date, the smell of surgical spirit still gives me the shivers.
This feature could also be called ‘What to wear when you’re so sick of your winter coat you could actually scream.” It might not *technically* be any warmer than it was last week, but Sunday was the first official day of Spring, so in order to justify some new season shopping, I’m rolling with it.
Have you reached peak trainer yet? If you’re anything like me (busy, tired, yet somehow still have the vague desire to look slightly stylish even in the face of new baby-sleep deprivation and daily school-run drama’s) your answer is probably no.
At the start of the year, colour trend forecasters are suddenly all over the design press telling us what we’ll be loving over the coming year. Now, I’m not going to tell you what I believe will be the next big trend (although word has it that metallics towards 2017 will be turning to the dark side), instead I’m going to stick with the strong trend of liquid metals we saw rise through 2015, along with Dulux’s colour prediction for 2016 of ‘Cherished Gold’ (more as a term rather than the actual colour!) as an interior accent.
