It’s felt like October in London for about 6 months now. Spring just won’t come.
So it’s lucky I’m a big fan of scarves. I have hundreds of them. Well not hundreds, but let’s just say they take up a fairly significant amount of space in my wardrobe. This is no accident. It’s because scarves are magic – they can make or break an otherwise dull or beautiful outfit.
When I decided to switch to natural personal care products – I attempted to start off as naturally as I could by using completely pure things like grapeseed oil (apparently Emma Stone swears by it) and olive oil as face moisturisers. But this resulted in my skin feeling parched and like sandpaper. It somehow managed to be dry and oily all at the same time!
So I decided to try a brand that uses all natural products but had spent the last 40 years dreaming up weird and wonderful ways to combine them so that their products actually work! Dr Hauschka was my answer.
I’m now a HUGE fan of their products. They’re amazing. They’re great for sensitive skin, have something for pretty much every condition and are completely chemical free. Here’s what I use everyday to keep my skin happy and in tip-top shape. Continue reading →
The weather is changing. Winter is finally upon us here in London, after it seemed like it might not come at all this year. But it’s here and the central heating has come on, as have the UGG boots and the winter coats.

Hush Nightsky Pyjamas
I’m a firm believer in a good pair of pyjamas. I’m not one of those girls who can happily sleep in a pair of old leggings and a t-shirt. I love pyjamas. Especially in winter when a soft pair of fleecy pyjamas can be so warm and comforting.
I have about six pairs altogether for both winter and summer (all of which were bought on sale). The patterns on them vary from starry, to polka dots, to flowers, to pinstripes (I love these and have a couple of them). The more masculine and oversized the better. Continue reading →
Over the years I have purchased, worn and attempted to squeeze into many a pair of jeans. I’ve tried a million different brands including 7 For All Mankind (I wore through 3 pairs), Citizens of Humanity, True Religion (I got tired of having horseshoes on my ass), Paige Premium Denim (too binding, sitting was tricky) just to name a few.
7 For All Mankind were my jeans of choice for years, they were comfortable and flattering but wore through quite quickly and I would soon have to purchase a new pair, which was irritating as they weren’t exactly giving them away.
After losing weight, then gaining weight, then losing weight again I was on the hunt for a pair of jeans that would still fit if I gained or lost a few pounds, as I do this routinely. I suspect most women do. Continue reading →
