Wet Weather – We need to prepare our wardrobes!

We have been having a very rainy time of late. Some people have been having it really bad with flooding in their homes and business premises. My heart goes out to them as there is very little that can be done, when you are at the mercy of the elements.

Not to make light of their situation but is there any way that we can get through a daily commute and get to work without looking like a drowned rat? Do you have a hair dryer at work to rectify a bad wet hair situation?

Do you have a great rain mac with a very strong umbrella or do you prefer a mac with a hood?

I’ve had a look around and the following companies have some nice rain-macs and coats:

Seasalt have a waterproof collection or you could try the rain coats at The Cambridge Raincoat Company.

Aquascutum do a lovely rain mac like this Double breasted raincoat Lana or why not try some Swedish design from Stutterheim, at Make it Rain.

If you enjoy wearing a bit of colour through the bleak weather then perhaps a mac in bold stripes from Boden is what you are looking for. Joules has a big mix of country style coats.

Obviously no raincoat listing would be complete without a mention of Burberry. I love that you can design your own burberry trench coat on the website.

Do you have a windproof umbrella? I’m thinking of getting one – this one at Stutterheim sounds really good.

Just as I get my head round the wet weather and preparing for it…..apparently we’ll soon be getting the icy cold that has hit America!

The London Commute!

The London Commute!
Most people have a work commute of some sort. If you, like many in the City of London, thought it was a great idea to buy a big house and live in the countryside and commute into the City for work. I hope your commuting bag is prepared with the daily essentials. With an extra long train commute sometimes it’s these things that can make or break your day!
I’d also like to add into the mix your phone charger or a portable charger which could save you on the days when your phone is dying on the way home and you need to make that call for a late night lift from the station!
