ZPR Girls

It may still be freezing outside but from butterfly trends to bird cages we are already looking ahead to spring (and warmer weather we hope)!

We’ve been on the hunt to get our New Year make over tools at bargain prices and with a to die for work wardrobe under £100 from Peacocks and beauty fixes galore as Superdrug hold the VAT on their own brand products there’s no better reason to hit the shops! And it’s not just ourselves we’ve been making over, the whole office has been stocking up on gorgeous home goodies from B&Q and Lakeland.

When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, it’s less about what we’re giving up and more about what we will be doing more of! Instead of saying no to delicious food, those of us with less than impressive culinary skills have decided to learn how to make it ourselves by signing up to classes at the Waitrose Cookery School – we’ll keep you posted!

So we've been absent from our blog for a couple of months in the madness that is the final quarter of the year in retail. So much shopping to do! Working and playing hard and too busy tweeting to blog. So the first week of Jan and we return to the blog.

What do we love most about the first week of January - the Feb issue of Vogue and the New Spring Lakeland catalogue - what more can a girl ask for!?

And what about the rest of the year? Well we've just updated our things to look out for in 2011 and this is what we reckon you'll be doing this year:

Watching a Royal wedding or two. Given this we predict a trend for street food and trestle tables

Grandma Food - all things comforting including baking bread and butterfly cakes

White - no not all year round snow but wearing white as well as tipping it to be the second white Christmas in a row

Butterflies - not just butterfly cakes but all things with butterflies on from the latest fashion accessory to the latest garden accessory

Attracting bees, butterflies and birds to your garden or your rurban retreat

Building on this floaty folklore image you will be wearing high waisted seventies style wide legged jeans

Embracing your inner nerd from all things iPad to QR codes, hauling and skittering

And what better than the over-sized envelope bag to keep your high tech gadgets in along with your tangerine lipstick!?

Holidaying in Beirut

And yogatoxing in Yeovil

Happy New Year from the ZPR Girls
