Fringe benefits

By Tamara Corin, August 21, 2014

I'm a sucker for detail. Give me a zip, a buckle or a tassel and I’m immediately reeled in. Intricate details make an otherwise simple garment stand out from the crowd. A fringe, (the fashion kind, not the hair variety) has a Boho-feel that’s more fitting with American cowboys and Wild West films.

Small wonders

By Tamara Corin, August 4, 2014

No matter where your destination, carry-on toiletries are a challenge to get right.

Any woman that loves her cosmetic and wash-bag feels more confident having her products close by, in-flight, rather than in the undercarriage. God forbid it gets lost and you're without; it would scar your holiday more than bad weather ever could.

Sunny delight

By Tamara Corin, July 28, 2014

Yellow fever has spread across catwalks and high street stores for high summer dressing. When Pantone announced the colour of the season, yellow was the surprise hue. It's a playful choice of what can be wonderfully grown-up. From buttercup to acid yellow, bursts of pure colour will instantly illuminate your wardrobe.

The holiday edit

By Tamara Corin, July 18, 2014

As a family of five, there's plenty of luggage and packing when the holiday season arrives, but ironically the only woman in the house, a.k.a me, packs the least amount before a trip abroad. Even my husband is privy to trying to squeeze a sixth pair of shoes into his suitcase, just-in-case. Since my challenging brood came on the scene, my just-in-case items no longer exist.
