THE POWER OF SAYING YES

As a blogger, different offers and opportunities will occasionally land in my inbox- usually during the day when I'm hurrying between appointments. Being honest, I decline most event invitations (when I'm lucky enough to receive them) because they're usually in London, with short notice or aren't relevant to the fashion and lifestyle ethos of Polkadot Pink. So when I received an event invitation to visit Mottram Hall, a luxury spa hotel, I was pleased to discover it was located close by and had an action packed itinerary which, of course, included fashion.

And, that's not forgetting the predominant issue here, can a capsule wardrobe for Berlin truly fit into 10kg of carry on luggage?

CHEAP FRILLS :: REMIXING AN OLD FAVOURITE

First blossom, now rapeseed; are you tired of these spring cliches yet? I'm sure many spring seasons have passed that have been equally as scenic and picturesque, but I've yet to recall them. Suddenly the fields in our local area are awash with colour and colourful wildflowers are sprouting. It seems April showers really do bring May flowers.
