Let the madness commence....

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will have picked up that there is change afoot at SGS headquarters. As of the beginning of December, we are relocating...nothing like a pre-Christmas house move to get the adrenaline pumping! Oh and add in AQE/11+ exams for my eldest during 3 of the 4 weekends in November.....and the twins' birthday. We don't do things by half :)


So it's fair to say that I'm up the walls a bit. The house we've bought, while beautiful, is old and has been very neglected in recent years so we've a lot of work to do. Luckily, we were able to get the keys in advance of handing over our current home so we've got about 4 weeks to get this new one habitable.


Therefore, my posts in the next month will be fewer in number and shorter in content - I know you'll understand why. Once we move, I have to build in a period of WiFi instability too. Thanks to some help from friends & family however, the shop will remain open and orders will go out as normal until further notice - and on that front, some lovely warm winter scarves for this colder weather, along with gorgeous statement necklaces for the party season, will all be added this week.


But for now, here's a weekend outfit that I managed to photograph for the blog. A combination of some old and new favourites in my wardrobe. Photos by the 5 year old in front of the lovely lawn we're leaving behind - Mr SGS has his work cut out for him in the new house!
Just a note on my scarf - it is a freebie from label.m haircare! I got my hair cut last week at Uber Hair as usual and this scarf was available with every 2 products purchased from the label.m range. No brainer. Love the colours and it's a heavier material so perfect for this time of year. If you're local, Uber Hair is on the Lisburn Road and for everyone else, the label.m stockists are on this link.

  2. Wow, talk about doing it all at once! Good luck!

    Lovely scarf, especially for a freebie! I have today realised that although I own over 30 scarves, I don't actually own a plain black one. I'll be watching with interest to see what comes into the shop...
