Posted: 02/06/2012 00:00

Whether you're into the Royal family or not, four days straight off work is reason enough to celebrate in my book. So, if you're planning on joining in with Queenie's Diamond Jubilee flag-waving this weekend here's a selection of geniusly tacky souvenirs, patriotic street partyware, plus beauty, fashion and accessories ranging from the cheap and cheerful, to in-your-face flamboyant, and understated anniversary chic.
