What Lies Beneath

(0) Comments | Posted 31 March 2014 | (12:24)

How much do you spend on your underwear? Is yours a case of picking up a supermarket multipack for less than a tenner while you do your weekly shop? Or do you prefer to browse the high street on a Saturday morning before meeting friends for coffee? If you're anything...

It's Got to Be Real

(0) Comments | Posted 4 August 2013 | (12:43)

I don't know about you but I love a beauty campaign that features real women.

Me Time

There's a lot to be said for taking time out...

The Hazards of Social Media

I do my best to be nice to everyone. I was brought up to treat people as I would like to be treated and, as most people do, I like to be treated nicely, with respect and sincerity and kindness. Perhaps that makes me a pansy, but I'd rather be...

The Art of Shopping

(0) Comments | Posted 16 October 2012 | (14:49)

I love fashion and I love shopping. I love timeless style and old school Hollywood glamour. I love plush interiors and quirky gardens and the latest beauty trends. With this in mind, you would think I would love art.

I want to love art, but the thing is, art can...

The Eyebrows Have It

(0) Comments | Posted 14 September 2012 | (15:04)

Everyone knows that the facial feature of the moment is the brow. Ever since Arizona Muse stepped on to the runway (and in to numerous campaigns), the brow has been the facial focal point and it shows no sign of giving up its place under the spotlight.

Most women between...

A Shopper's Heaven on Earth

Every August I spend a week or so in Oxfordshire visiting my in-laws, who live in a sweet little village six miles outside of Oxford. While we are there, we take long walks in the countryside, have lunch by the river and barbeques in the evening, spending time with our...

Jump Start

(0) Comments | Posted 30 October 2011 | (23:00)

Last season introduced us to the jumpsuit. SS11 said, "Here's the latest trend, why not try it on for size?", but of course, I immediately thought the jumpsuit wasn't for me: too many lumps and bumps to worry about.

The word jumpsuit brings to mind lithe, supermodel bodies scantily...

One of the Boys?

(0) Comments | Posted 5 October 2011 | (00:21)

I am not particularly impressed with this season's masculine trend. I think it's something to do with my hourglass figure; I can't wear clothes cut with men's sharp lines in mind. Firstly, they don't fit properly - masculine tailoring doesn't work well on T&A - and secondly, I'm too short....
