Loving my mohair cape for lounging around at home or picking up the kids from school. Eitherway looking good.
Getting my new pad in Hove Brighton designed with Ruth took my pad to the next level. It was wonderful to have a sounding board for all furniture and paint choices and I’m delighted with the outcome and the fun experience.
Ruth is truly efficient and seasonal shopping for my lifestyle, saved me time by using Ruth’s wardrobe consultancy. Plus outfit making – new ideas of how to wear my clothes across formal and casual looks. A very welcome insight
