Twenty Fifteen

How crazy that this is my first entry this year. It’s nearly mid August and the stores are already hanging up their Christmas decorations. I’ve decided to just write and hopefully get this blog of mine back up and running. So much has happened this year and yet so much has remained the same. An […]

And no one loves to […]

Brogues, Clarks and Disco

When you think of Clarks what image comes to mind? School shoes, right? More specifically being taken as a child to get your feet professionally fitted for Clarks  shoes. It’s a memory most of us have and one that we’ve carried with us and will probably pass onto our children too. Because let’s be honest no-one does […]
