Street Style Steal: Ruth Crilly and Daily Mix TV

Posted · 4 Comments

I wanted to embed the first Street Style Steal episode on here for you to see, just in case you’re Youtube-adverse! Nothing wrong with that, by the way – I often get a headache just looking at the Youtube homepage with its hundreds of videos of dogs in sunglasses and men jumping off high cliffs. But everything [...]

recipe for spaghetti with buffalo mozzarella and tomato

Quick Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella Linguine

Posted · 16 Comments

Just a little something that I often knock together when I’m starving but can’t be bothered to “properly cook”. This just requires a pan of boiling water and another with some gently heated olive oil. I usually have about 75g of linguine with half a ball of mozzarella (MUST be buffala and not that terrible, plasticky [...]

It’s kind of sad that Christmas is now dominated by present-buying followed immediately by sales-buying, but I do make the majority of my large fashion investments during sale times and I also like to stock up on little bargains to give as birthday presents throughout the year!

Posted · 6 Comments

Not because of my big balls, but because they have great attention to detail. They might have about three million different ranges [...]

A Christmas Card for You!

Posted · 15 Comments

 Merry Christmas you wonderful, wonderful lot. Feel privileged that you’ve actually got some form of card – I didn’t send any this year! I was hoping that Mr AMR would take the card-writing on as one of his errands, but you can never trust a man to do anything that involves stamps, address books and…writing [...]

My Top 5 Skincare Ranges

Posted · 18 Comments

I’ve done a little run-down of the top five skincare ranges of 2012. Now I’m talking about entire ranges here, not about individual products. If I did a top five products then the list might look a little different – this is a video about complete (or almost complete) ranges that I’ve tried, tested and loved. I should do [...]
