Sitting Comfortably?

Herman Miller Sayl Chair

Are you sitting comfortably? No, are you? Really? Because I am, but I definitely wasn’t before. I have been destroying my back, neck and shoulders for at least two years! My office chair was reasonably comfortable – upholstered, cushioned seat, that kind of thing – but I spent most of my time sitting at the edge of it, craning forward … Read More

Date Night Makeup

A Model Recommends

Date Night Makeup! It was my wedding anniversary last Thursday (you can read my wedding dress post here) and I went to a lovely local Italian restaurant for dinner. With Mr AMR, obviously – it would have been rather weird if I had gone alone! Here’s the makeup look that I wore to go out – it’s quite a nice … Read More

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Cream British Shorthair Mr Bear

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) After I finished making my Fragrance Collection video last week, Mr Bear came padding on into the bathroom expecting a cuddle and I picked him up when the camera was still running. I grabbed this screenshot from my video editor … Read More

Awapuhi Moisturizing Lather Shampoo

Awapuhi Moisturizing Lather Shampoo

Does this shampoo tube not remind you of Batman? Perhaps I have Batman on the brain  - the new movie comes out this Friday and I am a big fan of the other Christian Bale episodes! Look at that shiny, sexy, sleek packaging though – fit for the most chic of bathrooms. (I’ll stop thinking about Batman now – we … Read More

Massive Thanks – and Apologies…


Just a quickie to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Youtube contest. Results come in (inexplicably!) on the 30th July, so I shall be on holiday when they do, but will be sure to have my laptop on and waiting!

Chanel Bombay Express

I love this image for the limited capsule collection from Chanel, Bombay Express. Dark eyes and nude lips on beautiful, perfect skin – the brows dark and groomed, a hint of a flush on the cheeks. You can’t see it properly in this image, but the skin is lit all over with a fine gold highlight – the Route des Indes de … Read More

End of the Sales. Sadface.

ysl star wedges

Oh dear, it’s the end of the sales. I have that funny sick feeling you get when you’ve eaten too much chocolate. The Net-a-Porter purchases were brilliant, and I was very happy with my Donna Karan dress and DVF bikini, but as predicted the £30 T-Shirt did go back! If any of the items that I kept (see sales post here) are still … Read More

What I Wore to my Wedding…

ruth crilly

It’s my wedding anniversary today, so I thought I’d tease you with some little photographs! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you might have glimpsed these already, except for the top one in which I am sporting a nervous smile and about an acre of chest. You will notice that pre-marriage I am demurely holding flowers, whereas … Read More

The Ten Second Good Deed.

British Shorthair Mr Bear

This Youtube competition is really stressing me out! I stooped low yesterday and brought in the big guns to canvas extra votes – yes, I utilised the charms of Mr Bear! Look at his unimpressed face! I tried to make him wave a flag but he wasn’t having any of it. I’m so sorry to keep harping on about voting, … Read More
