Insideout and the Road to Recovery (with just a little help from our friends)

The long awaited day is almost upon us when ‘non essential’ (I still really dislike that phrase) retailers are able to re-open their doors. Not only are we very excited to be able to see our customers in person from Monday - but we are also longing for you to come and see the little things that have changed and the new stock we have in store. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone - but of course it isn’t without some trepidation.

You don’t have to do Mother’s Day.  But if you do - we’re here to help.

The thing with these annual celebrations like Mothering Sunday and Valentine’s Day is that they’re not for everyone are they?  This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 14th March. Traditionally it is a Christian festival and one where people returned to the churches in which they were baptised as children to gather with their families and loved ones and children would pick flowers to give to their mothers on the way to church.

Tips to Boost Yourself Esteem from the Insideout

Did you know that February is Boost Your Self-Esteem Month? As Oprah Winfrey quite rightly says; “Self-esteem comes from being able to define the world in your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgment of others.” So how does the world look to you? And how are you making your world look to others? It’s an interesting question isn’t it? In the long months of lockdown over the last year, I have been doing my regular live lookarounds, giving you a shopping experience and keeping in touch with all our supportive and regular customers. I hope you think I’m...
