2 years ago this week I packed up my bedroom and piled boxes and bags into my dad’s car, ready to head off to uni in my now beloved Sheffield. I was almost paralysed with fear, and I think that car journey was the first day I ever experienced car travel sickness. It was a […]

If you own a small business – you will know the importance of new content, and for the gorgeous Donna at Trapeze Kids she was super excited when the new Indikidual SS/19 collection dropped last week – the range features bright colours and bold prints; the children of Sheffield are going to adore these!
