I simply love and swear by all things holistic health & wellbeing. Things like energy healing sessions, Ayurvedic full body massages and holistic facials are my must-dos to keep me going.
It was hot the day my child stood on the Cape Cobra. It is always hot in the Namibian summer but the rain the previous day had made it more so. It was clear-aired too so the distance between things became harder to judge. Or perhaps that's just how it seemed to me.
Whether you're into the Royal family or not, four days straight off work is reason enough to celebrate in my book.
Each year there's always one beauty trend that instils fear and anticipation in equal measures to women worldwide. This season? The rise of the 'no mascara' look as designers sent their models down the catwalk with naked lashes. Say what? No falsies? No mascara?
I am sat in a red dress, with hastily applied make up waiting for a photographer. A few years back, this was my ambition: to be a person photographed regularly, or a model as they are otherwise known.
I was shocked to hear how environmentally unfriendly jeans are, recently. With its tough, hardwearing nature giving you more wears per wash I'd assumed denim was one of the greener fabric choices but how wrong I was...
With a slate of family visits across the UK looming and - fingers crossed - a weekend in Munich cheering on Chelsea in the Champions League Cup Final (how incredible was that semi?!), I've been taking a look at the latest in travel accessories.
Samantha Brick started a controversy last week when she had the audacity to say she was beautiful. Well, most critics are quick to point out that's ...
I know I will risk the wrath of all royalists out there, but currently the mainstream media seen unable to speak the truth when it comes to Kate Middleton. Am I the only person who thinks the Duchess of Cambridge is now dangerously thin?
If Brick is 'deluded' - not about her looks, but in her understanding of why the world responds to her as it does - then I'd argue that her 'delusion' has been shared by nearly all of us to a greater or lesser extent.
Obese people seem to have no heads. There are pictures all over the media every day of headless obese people. In fact, it's hard to find an image of a fat person who has a head. Even on the often misinformed and biased 'news' reports on TV, all I see are grainy scenes of fat people slowly walking around shopping centres, shown from the neck down.
I believe that I am a beautiful woman and I feel no shame in saying that out loud, in public, online or anywhere else... I suppose Samantha Brick and I are quite similar. The difference between us however, is that where I understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Samantha Brick seems to think that beauty is a finite measurement.
I would like to offer my congratulations to Ms Samantha Brick. To write an article that achieves the kind of earth-shattering, record-busting, never-seen-before success hers has takes quite something.
I pity Samantha Brick. No, not because the poor love can't strike up a fag for the want of thousands of Zippo-clutching men leaping to her aid, nor because of all the cruel jealous bitches out there hating on her 'beauty'.
I'm not entirely sure whether Samantha Brick is right, mainly because I'm not drop dead gorgeous so cannot confirm or deny her experience. But I think she courageously raises a major issue about whether a woman's looks define how she is treated by both men and women socially and professionally.
The reason Twitter has got its woolly knickers in a twist is because she thinks she's a bit of alright, which got me thinking about modesty, and how it is without a doubt the most overrated virtue of them all.
