Welcome to my new column for the Lowestoft Journal. Having had a small break from the paper, I am now back and this time I’m featuring the best in what’s on offer in our local area.

It is often easy to forget what’s on your doorstep but having a local business and networking with lots of businesses and customers, I get to see the great selection we have and so each month I can share with you what’s on offer including some stylish events too.

As we approach the colder months, it’s time to start thinking of wrapping up and keeping cosy.

It’s all about the knitwear at this time of year and with ochre being a strong colour this season, there are plenty of gorgeous styles around, like this bobble sleeve cardigan, which is a gorgeous shade whilst being warm and cosy. £39.99 one size available at Match Suffolk Road.

As well as getting yourself a nice new knit, it’s time to sort your bottom half.

Jeans are a given for winter but this season sees the return of the trouser.

Checked printed trousers are ideal as they flatter the leg and great for day or night.

I’m loving these grey checked ones from Match, Suffolk Road. Style these with boots or converse.

One of the key things for when it turns cooler is the need to wear tights.

I love wearing black tights and a dress but the key is finding the right pair. Well look no more, I have been wearing these tights from Marks and Spencers for years.

The Sensor tight by M&S are amazing at keeping you warm when you are cold and cool when you are hot. Made from a special secret tight fabric, these are my go to tights every winter.

Available at M&S Lowestoft £8 for a pack of 3.

As the nights get darker, it’s all about setting the right scene at home. Theres nothing better than lighting a new candle and bedding down to keep warm. I love buying a new candle and am always on the lookout for a new scent. This fig and pear candle from Homewood & Rose is just gorgeous plus I love the pink pot which I will reuse. £14 available from Homewood & Rose, London Road South.

I think November can be an awkward time too for your skin. With the mix in weather, our skin can look dull and feel dry. I often struggle with knowing what to go for with coverage but having seen the effects of Bare Minerals, it’s a great way of providing soft natural coverage.

Bare minerals are available at the Beauty Lounge, Suffolk Road Lowestoft.

Not only are these stylish finds available in Lowestoft currently but there are also a number of key events in November.

From fashion shows, to make up events and pop up pops, there are some cracking things going on.

For anyone interested in style for themselves and the home I have listed a handful of key events on the website.

* Cut out the Stigma Wellness Event at Ivy House Hotel Saturday 17th November, evening of fashion, health and stalls all for charity. Tickets available at Code Hairdressers, Oulton Broad.

* Homewood & Rose Late Night Christmas Shopping event on Thursday 22nd November co hosted with Match Clothing at Homewood and Rose.

* Lancome event at Boots with Make Up artist Marek Hegli of London Fashion Week Tuesday 
6th November in Boots 
Lowestoft. Tickets available at Boots.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
