With that in mind say hello to my new little blogging series “According to Bloggers” where I will be asking bloggers from all areas of the internet their opinion on everyday things.

With Christmas just days away I figured a few of you might actually have a few days off from work and can indulge in some festive movie fun!

What I Wore – My Chinese Silk Jacket
by

Silk JacketI went out to dinner with Jon, my Dad and Sis last week to a place in Swansea called Verve 37 (keep your eyes peeled for a review soon) so I thought it would be a good excuse for a little outfit posts.

How to Create a Picture Wall on a Staircase
