The Academy Awards is always one of my favourite red carpet night’s of the year, I do love the elegance, the drama and the exquisitely crafted gowns, and this year the Oscars 2018 didn’t disappoint, the all-black looks from the Golden Globes and BAFTAs were gone and a more hopeful, optimistic red carpet was in its place, filled with rainbow hues, bold statements, bows and lots and lots of sparkle.

So when did a pink coat become the new neutral? I’m not sure either but I love it.

I’m not one for New Year resolutions, but I do like to set myself goals, some silly, some very silly, some more dreams than goals, and some just to motivate myself to get my arse into gear and to ignore the fear, and I also like to think that each year I learn from the previous, the good and the bad and hopefully make a change if needed. This year I think a change is in the air, I feel that 2018, is the year that I start listening to me, what I want, not what everyone else is doing,
