The Dress Of Dreams

Dressing smartly for my day job Monday to Friday means that by the time the weekend comes, I’m so ready for snuggly jumpers and ripped jeans. This weekend however Daniel managed to prise me out of my Levi’s and Nike’s for a weekend of dining and drinking in the best city in the world. London. This Saturday armed with a new BMW 1 series convertible (Dan’s not mine, I can’t drive) we headed to our…

Shop My Wardrobe

Label Lusting | Nicholas Kirkwood

Nights out, dinner dates, clubbing, the ballet, the theatre, even work… you name it, I’ll be in heels. From my experience working at Kurt Geiger and a tried and tested lifetime of wearing heels, I know that fit and comfort is important but ultimately it’s style that will always take precedence. Those who follow my Instagram will have seen a fair few lust pics of Nicholas Kirkwood popping up. I love the cool stand out designs and…

How To Get Better & Better Skin Daily

“You’ve got a bit of…” as Dan goes to touch my face. ARGH! It’s that time of the year where my skin (which has been relatively good all Summer) decides to be disobedient and suddenly throw all of its toys out of the pram. Last week I saw the first signs of dry skin. Going from a disgusting underground tube to an office where wind (I mean air con) blows violently or it’s St. Tropez…

What’s Your Signet Ring?

Signet rings are about to become big news. Bold statement hey? Well, actually saying that, the traditional signifier of old wealth and breeding has been worn on the pinky for centuries already. Whether it’s a Grandad, a friend or even that annoying hairdresser that keeps knocking the side of your head every time he downs tools to talk to you, they’re actually still very common. Check Condé Nast for instance; signet rings aplenty! Most people…

Introducing Baby Bunny

If you’ve owned a pet, you’ll already know how much love and affection they can give. Bunny with no name is no exception. When we come in from work she’s alert, sniffing around and desperate to be held. People think we’re mad getting her but to us, she’s family. On a typically boring Saturday spent scuffing feet around B&Q and doing the weekly Waitrose shop, I spotted Pets at Home in the distance. “Lets goooooo innnn” I…

Let’s Talk About Mother & Daughter Relationships

‘Haha, are you serious?’ was the question most people asked when I told them what I was doing with my long weekend off. Yes, honestly. The other week, I took my mum to Amsterdam for her birthday. It was my fourth time in the space of four years visiting Holland’s capital and as like every other year, it didn’t disappoint. Who would have thought that this time though, I’d be arm in arm with my mum walking…

A Discussion On Nervousness

Today, presenting is part of my job. Whether it’s during small intimate client meetings or in front of large groups at media agencies, I’m expected to know my content inside and out and present without looking at slides. Making eye contact, instigating interaction and being animated must come naturally but everybody knows this only comes with practice. Presenting can sometimes make even the best of us nervous. Presenting in interviews, presenting to your boss, even…

Where To Go For A Truly British Feast

As In Burger & Chips Did you know that in the city of London there are around 19,000 restaurants? Different types of cuisine and themes and a variety of entertainment on offer. Additionally, the deal breaker for me – different types of beers, wines and cocktails. If you’re in the mood for a Turkish feast with belly dancers and fantastically presented food, try Levant. If you want to relax with beers and predictable food  try Belgo. There’s always somewhere open to have a good time.…

Men, Relationships & Cheating

We met Doctor Gemma Foster on screen in the first of five episodes almost six weeks ago and like thousands across the nation, I was instantly obsessed. Even at work, it consumed many of my conversations and we couldn’t wait for the next instalment. For those who have been asleep since early September, Dr. Foster is a wild five part drama (catch up on BBC iPlayer) which sees Suranne Jones playing a beautiful 30-something, successful Senior GP whose life is…

Getting Ready For Amsterdam-age

My mum is 50. That’s right, she’s young, she’s glamorous and is often referred to as my sister by those who don’t know us. For those not so quick at numbers, she was 19 when she had me and even if I do say so myself, she did a pretty damn good job of bringing up myself, my sister and brother. When she turned the big 5-0 this year, rather than crying about a new decade…

Why You Should See The London Cabaret Club

Hands up if you’ve ever had that awkward feeling when walking in to a room in a floor length red dress with a huge side split and spaghetti straps, thinking Oh. My. God. I’m totally overdressed. Yes? Well forget any feelings of that kind when you’re inside the Bloomsbury Ballroom for The London Cabaret Club because actually, you’re going to be totally out done by the guests in their black tie evening attire and most importantly, the cabaret stars themselves. Now…

What Happened When I Met Sex & The City Author

‘Cheating isn’t funny but viewed from afar the cheater maybe be’…. So said Candace Bushnell in a recent tweet. Follow her on Twitter and you’ll find lots of comments and mumbles undoubtably synonymous with the world famous, Manolo wearing, New York City darling, Carrie Bradshaw. For those who live under a rock, Candace Bushnell is the brains behind Carrie, Charlotte, Sam and Miranda; the group of best friends in Sex and the City. Recently, I…

Why Everyday Should Be A Shoesday

If you follow my Instagram and Twitter, you’ll have seen that I’ve been uploading lots of pictures of outfits that I’ve put together to pair with five different sets of shoes from new online retailer, ShoesDays.co.uk. For those who aren’t familiar with the company, they offer affordable, fashionable shoes to suit those who love flats, sandals, boots, straps and like me, the highest of heels. Aside from their own branded goods, they even stock Dunlop slippers, a collection from…
