Even before the lock down, the number of brands that I bought for full price had diminished.  At this point, there are only a very few brands that i would pay full price for, one of these is RAEY. Now, I am not saying that you should necessarily go out and buy this particular brand.  […]

The winter brought us curb chains but with spring already well underway and summer imminent it is soon going to be too warm to be jingling around with multiple heavy chains. Chains have been quickly replaced by a plethora of beads and pearls. So many designers have already jumped on the trend, but like tie […]

Can I first thank the fabulous Monika for coming back to help me with my collages! I love nothing more than those magazine ‘must have’ lists, but in truth, most of the items are sponsored and are either over priced or featured because they have been gifted or are paying to be included. These are […]

Some trends come and go, others stick and become classics. All the tie die that I had seen before was either too expensive or too retro.  I wanted it to look contemporary, not like a hangover haze from Glastonbury. I wavered, and hence avoided tie dye for over a year, but with the lock down […]

After 4 weeks my roots had got completely out of control. No amount of root spray could keep them the grey at bay (I use Root Concealer by L’Oreal). With huge thanks to Penny (who set up Linnaean Salon and Restaurant) I managed to get the relevant colour numbers for my hair.  This is the […]

I’ve cut right back on the products that I buy but I’d run out of vitamin C. I got a hot tip from Debbie from Glow Harrogate.  She tries all the products before she orders them for her clinic and she just couldn’t get over the improvement in her clients skin once they started on […]

Maybe it’s the fact that I am trapped at home? I’m spending a disproportionate amount of time perusing fitness Apps!  I haven’t actually been using the Apps, I just love watching the outfits! I am definitely seeing a lot of unitards and booty shorts.  Normally best left to rap videos, yet now that I am […]

I know that it’s the last thing you probably want to hear about! However, I have had a lot of people enquiring about how it works and whilst it’s fresh in my mind I wanted to write it up.  This is not paid, just my own experiences. I am 49 and have had Botox over […]

So Anthony caught the virus, at least we presume so as he had all the symptoms, so we have been at home for a week now and have another week to go. Not that there is actually anywhere to go!  To be honest, I feel blessed that I can stay at home, put my business […]

I  have been involved in the fashion resale market for 7 years. Like online dating, people looked down on it for so long.  When if I would mention what I did, you could see a flicker of distaste on peoples faces.  The entire business had a reputation of being a bit grubby and no one […]
