I'm always very flattered when anyone, be it someone I know or a complete stranger, speaks to me about my blog. I am still a little overwhelmed that anyone, other than myself and my Mum, voluntarily takes time out of their day in order to read my stream of consciousness (Hi Mum!) But apparently they do and for this I will always be grateful.
As I said I find it very complimentary to receive messages about my blog and last night I got a lovely surprise in the form of an email from Front Row Society. FRS are a website and company with a difference. They work in a way that allows new artists and designers to submit their designs to the FRS team who then make them up into a style/collection and showcase them to the public. I love the idea behind this - it really feels as though the folk behind this site are doing their bit to help the economy along by keeping the designers and consumers firmly at the front of their minds. They even donate a percentage of every sale to the Ethical Fashion Forum. I mean, c'mon! These guys are ace!
In what I can only imagine was a bid on their part to have me faint with flattery they went on to say they'd seen my blog, loved it and are sending me a lovely scarf of my choice so a few clicks later I'd selected my favourite which should be winging its way to me any day now.

The prints, I'm sure you'll agree, are just fantastic and really original - nice to see at this time of year when the high street seems to be united in turning everyone's wardrobes into places that house dark, sombre colours and over-warm knitwear. And I think I'm more than a bit in love with the neon clutch.
Right, I'm off to chase the postman down the street to see if he has mine - as soon as I get it expect another post on these beauties.
