I’ve had a lovely afternoon with my daughter.
I spend a significant amount of time taking my sport mad boy to and from fixtures and training for both rugby and football so we spend a lot of time chatting en-route. I rarely get this opportunity with my (young teenage) daughter. So we walked into town and spent a few very happy hours perusing the make-up counters, looking at hair products and, of course, going for the inevitable hot chocolate. I look at her and wonder when she changed from a cute pig-tailed little girl into a beautiful, intelligent, thoughtful, kind young woman.
I wear each of these pieces often but this is the first time I’ve worn the Chelsea boots with the skinny jeans. I have a beautiful new bracelet too. It’s by Danon and matches the dragonfly pendant that I wrote about last month (love dragonflies).
It’s a gorgeous bracelet in brown leather with dragonfly and heart detail. It’s described as double wrap but it actually wraps around my wrist three times. The leather is beautifully soft and the bracelet is very comfortable.
I love it.
Love Liz x

It's good to connect with our family, in a real way and not just a practical one. Glad you had the chance to talk to your daughter. I'm sure she appreciates it.
Yes, it was lovely. We spend a lot of time together as threesome, but I don't often get time alone with my daughter x
First comment but I have read your blog for a while now. I was the same age as your daughter when my parents divorced (in v similar circs), and my brother was 8. It was tough, but the best thing was the way in which it brought my mum and I so close together – we're great friends (I am now 34). I hope you have the same with your two x
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment x
Yes, I have always had a very close relationship with both of my children, but without question we are closer than ever. It has of course been incredibly difficult at times but they have shown incredible strength. It's lovely and very reassuring to know that you and your mum have a great relationship. Thank you again x
Such a pretty outfit; I love the jewellery! xxx
