TLC for my wardrobe

As a city dweller, I find myself constantly trying to keep up with the maintenance of my few possessions in an attempt to keep cost down.  Visits to the mechanic, repairs here and there in my flat, keeping the unruly garden in shape and a host of other things. I guess like everything I possess, my wardrobe actually goes through a lot of wear and tear, and considering the fact that I wear my clothes to death!,…

Cool ‘n’ The BAG

Many of you , who kindly read my post , would know that I favour a tote bag over a handbag, and have over a hundred of them. They are cheap enough, come in a plethora of prints as well as sizes, and afford me the indulgence of swapping bags from day to day. I often find a lot of hand bags, either over embellished, or with a brand name screaming at me, and to carry this…

The Metamorphosis of a good old book …..

I started reading a book over the weekend, the first in over a year! I’d been thinking about reading a good book for a long while now, but since driving came on the scene, reading for pleasure became insurmountable! Last week, whilst talking to my neighbour,who has a big library, I mentioned the need  to sink my teeth into a good book – she instantly produced a fat softback, which I  haven’t been able to put down since.…

How I Rock bridesmaid dresses post weddings!

I remember being a flower girl at many a wedding, whilst still a child. The dresses were always picked I now presume, by the bride, and were usually white, creamy, or floral. Being a child, I just enjoyed the moments, attention, and the awww, ‘so cute ‘ comments, that my twin and I attracted. Needless to say, I was unaware of how much it cost to have us both kitted out for the weddings, or what would happen…

I do…

The Ultimate tote bag to date….

WHEN the government brought us bang up to speed with the rest of Europe by introducing a five-pence charge on carrier bags, I certainly found an additional use for my every increasing pile of tote bags acquired from events and press. Of course, they are incredible popular now , and the array of print,colours, and fabric is much to be desired – ( if like me you like that kind of thing). The problem I have with  tote…

Dutch style cycling

I never quite understood Boris Johnson (former mayor of London’s) vision for cycling in London and his plan to create of cycle paths, until I visited  the Netherlands. Granted, I had been to Amsterdam, a few times , many moons ago, but it was work related and I didn’t really take in as much as I perhaps should have.  Fortunately, my stylist role  took me to Rotterdam this year, and my eyes were wide open and ready…

PACKING FOR MY FIRST Glastonbury

Last year I wrote a post called Bestival, and mused on what I would take with me, if I could just push myself far out enough of my comfort zone to camp in a tent. This  year, I actually get to live Glastonbury, and as I pack my festival essentials, I am filled with excitement and dread at the same time. Having closely been following all media covarage on this event – and  hearing that people have…

The full monty

One of the items that seems to have dominated my small wardrobe recently, is this full black mesh skirt. I find myself constantly gravitating towards it, and it gets a look in, at least once a week. It is so easy to dress up or down, and flatters my boyish figure beautifully. The interesting truth is, had I not seen this at a press preview, and been given the opportunity of it been gifted to me, I…

Oils. Lotions & Potions…

If I got stuck on an island, the one thing I would crave for after food and water, would be a moisturiser! I simply cannot do without! The absence of it makes my skin feel one size smaller, and my lips go into hibernation.Having naturally, dry/Normal skin, a moisturiser is what stops the dial swinging from Normal to Dry. – The horror of pausing, whilst out and about,rummaging through my make-up bag and discovering that I have nothing…
