Colab Dry Shampoo – The “Thank You” Giveaway!

Posted · 44 Comments

Sorry to my Daily Fix subscribers; this post should have made it into your inboxes yesterday, but I was transferring some video files and my internet had a meltdown. It can’t handle anything more taxing than sending an email attachment, so trying to transfer 1.5GB of video just about killed it off. But anyway, here we are, [...]

Well I think that these “pony effect” leather court shoes from River Island are just marvellous.

The Trenchcoat of Preciousness.

I finally found a use for that ridiculously glamorous silk Burberry trench that I bought a couple of years ago in the States. (Coerced, I have to say, by Sam from Pixiwoo who is a terrible enabler when it comes to these things.) It was the perfect autumn outerwear for my sister-in-law’s wedding; smart and [...]

I posted this video on Youtube months ago and totally forgot to put it up here on the website. Sorry about that! It’s the recipe for one of my all-time favourite dishes, Keema Curry. (Keema is just lamb mince, so don’t be put off by the unfamiliar.) The best thing about this dish, apart from [...]
