1) WHAT’S YOUR BLOG ABOUT:
I am a British Mum, married to a Spaniard and bringing up my son in Spain. My Blog is about living life on the Spanish Coast, my life as a mum to a five year old boy and Nutrition, Fitness, Fashion and Lifestyle tips and tricks I have picked up as an English Language Teacher, model, and during my latest adventure as a designer of my own children’s clothing line.
2) WHAT’S YOUR FAVE OUTFIT?
I’ve chosen two favourite Outfits. One is a coral dress from Guess that my husband bought me. The other is a day dress, again in Coral, from Michael Kors.
I obviously like the colour of the outfits – both being Coral! I love this colour in the Summer as it really brings out your tan. I like the Guess dress as it was a gift from my husband after a wonderful family trip to Barcelona. Although I am more a fan of Guess shoes than clothes, I really like the fit of this dress. I love the Michael Kors Dress. I always get compliments whenever I wear it for it´s colour and style, and I am always asked where I bought it. It´s a dress you can dress up or down, and I like the fact that it is smart and sophisticated.
My son’s shirts and trousers are from my upcoming clothing line for kids – Wilde Kids London.
3) WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SHOP FOR YOUR CLOTHES?
I usually shop in Zara or Massimo Dutti for my everyday clothes or in the UK at Oasis or lines at House of Fraser. I do like to have the odd designer piece in my wardrobe for special occasions. I like Roberto Verino for Coats, Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera.
4) WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE SHOPS FOR CHILDREN’S CLOTHES?
I try and avoid high street shops for Oliver as I live in a very small town where there is Zara or H&M for kids, and so everyone ends up wearing the same thing. I often buy Oliver Designer bits at Outlets (as they end up costing the same as Zara Clothes in the sale!) I really like Carolina Herrera for kids and Ralph Lauren. The reason I created my own children´s line was because I could never find the clothes I wanted for my son.
5) WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE STORE FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD?
It would have to be BHS for all the Christmas Stocking fillers – that’s a big part of my childhood memories, and Miss Selfridge which is where all of my friends and I, as school girls used to go and buy our clothes – we thought we were very cool!
6) DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER SHOPPING TIPS?
I would say sometimes less is more, when buying clothes. I used to buy lots of clothes during the sales, but now I have learnt to be selective. I think it´s better to have some very good, unusual pieces rather than lots of clothes that will go out of style quickly or deteriorate quickly.

Thank you for taking part Jane – I’m a big fan of coral too, it’s a really summery shade. Your new kids’ line of clothing is very exciting – good luck with it!
