Life has just been crazy as of late!  Work, work and more work…
Never enough time to blog!!!

Moving on to the recent news…
With her husband still on deplyment in The Faulklands, The Duchess of Cambridge spent her first Valentine’s Day as a married woman on official duties in Liverpool.

Kate choose the ‘Celeste’ wool coat by Hobbs for her visits to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and The Brink Bar (an Action on Addiction project) in Liverpool.   

At Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Kate was greeted by hundreds of well-wishers and presented with cards and flowers from children in the crowd.

While touring the hospital Kate visited and spoke with an array of children who are seeking treatment and then also met privately with heads of the hospital to view their new £230 million renovation plans.

Kate then visited another one of her charities The Brink – run by Action on Addictions. 
Accoring to their website, “The Brink is a revolutionary new venue that’s so much more than your usual café bar. We’ve taken alcohol out of the mix to provide a truly welcoming, creative and intelligent space where people from all backgrounds and walks of life can dine, hang out, socialise and relax. Best of all, The Brink is a recovery social enterprise, which means that all our profits go directly back into the community to fund support for those who have suffered through alcoholism and addiction”.


At The Brink, The Duchess was able to taste the drink created and name in her honour.


Moving onto the fashion!
The Hobbs brown military style coat was originally £369, however it had been marked down to £182.   It has a belted waist, and flares slightly from the hips with some more small belt details around the wrists.


The Mirror is reporting this coat has already fallen victim to ‘The Kate Effect’ and sold out in an hour!

Kate accessorised her coat with a simple black polo dress from Oasis, black tights and her suede black heels.  We also noticed the same Kiki McDonough earrings from Christmas Day have made another apperance!  Her clutch was also seen a few days ago at the Lucian Freud exhibition.

The four figures will be wearing some of Kate’s most memorable ensembles, including the navy Issa dress worn during their engagement announcement

In New York City, a waxed Kate will be wearing a replica of the Alexader mcQueen gown worn in Claifornia during her North American tour last July.  Another waxed Kate in Amsterdam will be wearing the more recent Alice Temperley lace piece from the Wild Horse Premier.  And the last waxed Kate will wear the Jenny Packham dress from last years Ark Gala Dinner.
