Topshop: Have You Seen This Skirt?

Posted · 39 Comments

Dear Topshop. Or anyone, for that matter. Have you seen this skirt? It’s a houndstooth check “tulip” skirt and I want it. I need it. Why the hell I didn’t buy it when I actually tried it on, and liked it enough to take a photo of it, and tweet about it, and tell everyone [...]

Fragrance Review: Fan di Fendi

The summery freshness of this eau de toilette is really growing on me. It’s zingy but still quite sophisticated, more grown-up than most “light-hearted” scents. The top notes are very fruity – Pear Green Tea, Blackcurrant and Tangerine, whereas the heart notes (apparently. Get me.) are floral; Italian Broom Flower and Yellow Jasmine. The base [...]

The A Model Recommends archives are back! They still need a LOT of work – most have lost images or tags or categories – but they are there for all to see.

What incredible weather we’re having in the UK! I mean, I know we say this every year, but it really is as though summer has come early. I have actually been sunbathing in my roof garden (not overlooked except by passing helicopters, so one can lie there completely starkers should one wish to!) and my [...]

 Confession: I used 90% of this product up using the wrong method. I mean, entirely the wrong technique. I thought that this scrub was absolutely pointless – it was dry, crumbly, most of it fell off my skin and landed in the bottom of the shower, which is one of my absolute pet hates. It [...]

My Happy Coral Sweater

I wore my new Forever 21 jumper yesterday for the first time and it was so bright that I couldn’t help but feel happy in it! I suppose it helped that it was sunny and that the clocks had gone forward… I was filming a video up on my roof terrace, from where I also [...]

I promised just after Christmas that I’d do a proper post on the d.j.v. Beautinizer. There’s been a bit of a delay, but here we are with the post and a proper picture! Check me out with my deathly face and weird, psychopathic stare! Why, why, why did I think that taking the photo pre-maquillage [...]
