New Beginnings

This really is the last year of Make Do Style. Yes after 6 years of blogging on this blog it is time to call it quits very soon. Some of you may have already observed my new twitter handle Twisted Skirt, well that is the new name of my company Twisted Skirt Publishing. A new blog will be up and running soon - don't worry it is me - there will be no fancy pants stuff (yet).

Then there is the book launch on Kindle of Girlynomics taking place this month. 2013 really is the year of new beginnings!

Talking of new beginnings Make Do Style makes a few predictions for the coming year both style related and general ones.

1. This is the year for embracing Sports Luxe. Adidas, metallics, and block colours makes combining tracksuit pants with heels the easy option. Don't say double denim do say Adidas Originals. Dig out your Run DMC.

2. Holidaying in Greece. After months of misery in 2012 with epic rainfall, book early to avoid another disappointing summer weather wise. Greece is the place to give you guaranteed sunshine, heat and warm waters. Go to Greece to get lashings of vitamin D and Lays Oregano crisps.

3. Mars probing is the new science hotspot, even India is sending one to Mars this year. Also make the most of  the Hadron Collider at Sern as they collide protons with lead ions in February before closing it down for essential maintenance work in 2013. 

4. Flat and frumpy is the new footwear. See Katie Grand for Hogan and Celine. Don't think Birkenstock do think rubber sole

5. 'Tis the year to stop being superstitious. It is 2013! Enjoy

  3. Hi again! The redirect has been hit and miss on a sore note I've lost my google page rank of 4 (built up over the years and I see you are currently pr4 too) which apparently you can sort out before you go to your new url (although I don't know how). On a good note, the new website does seem to redirect without any problems-I've kept my original url on the blog with the new url as an addition (under publishing on settings). Just make sure you verify your blog to google-has taken me a good while and only managed it this morning. Let me know when you want to go to the exhibition, I am free virtually anytime. Let me know if you need any other help regarding the blog xx

  6. Looking forward to your new blog and book (my kindle is at the ready!). Sad to say goodbye to Make Do Style but looking forward to your new stuff. Good luck with the launch! xx Ps I would love to buy the shoes that I have for this week's shoe of the week but funds don't allow. However it has got me thinking about saving for designer over buying high street shoes.

    1. DSquared are quite pricey! I think designer shoes are more loved but I do tend to keep mine in boxes when I should wear them more often!! xx
