There’s nothing like the Franchise Riviera, easpecially at the end of the September Sun. There’s also nothing quite like Paris, so with a week to spare I decided to combine the both.

I had a relaxing quiet few days in Nice and Cannes- staying in the old port and also the Tiara Miramar Hotel. Then I went onto Paris where I had an eventful weekend.

Below is a few photos of a beautiful time. Now I am planning a winter getaway, would love to hear any tips on where to go and what to do!

One of my favourite things about Autumn is not only all the beautiful colours of the leaves, the darker days and cosy nights in (yes, I’m one of those weird people who enjoy winter!)

But it’s all about the autumn dressage- ie tweed!

I have always been a fan of tweed, ever since I went to a car boot sale in my hometown of Devon and found a whole boot of Harris tweed jackets in size 8’s in a variation of colours and styles – all at £2 each, what a steal!

I still wear them to this day and love them so much. And in sincerity they never wear out, even after many years in the countryside (although my mum was slightly dubious when I came home rolling a granny trolley of them smelling rather ‘old lady’ – her words not mine!)

So I’ve rounded up this seasons tweed, from high street to designer, I hope you enjoy them and would love to see your suggestions too!
