Approach with Caution

Posted · 43 Comments

You may have realised from the lack of regular posts that I’m still very poorly. I’m really struggling to shake off this terrible flu thing which appears to have turned into a bad infection and a myriad of other aches and pains. I feel as though I’ve been hit by a bus – a phrase [...]

A Day in my Life at London Fashion Week

Posted · 20 Comments

I’m really quite ill at the moment – a cough-cold turned into what I think was flu which then developed into some kind of horrendous sickness bug. Throw in a few extra maladies which I won’t go into and you have a thoroughly broken-down Ruth. I feel as though my body has given up on [...]

Tom Ford Lip Colour Shine Review

Posted · 22 Comments

This month’s most regularly used lip “things” have been the new Tom Ford Lip Colour Shines. There’s something about Tom Ford – everything he touches just seems to appeal to me. I’ve said this before – Tom and I have very similar tastes. He should probably hire me as some kind of muse, or consultant, [...]

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Posted · 8 Comments

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) Keeping it rather brief this weekend, I’m afraid, as I have been stuck in bed with some sort of horrendous cough-cold-headache hybrid. I’ve dragged myself up for an hour and I’ve got that weird spinning-head [...]

OK, I know that this won’t be every person’s idea of affordable, but I hate spending money on very cheap things that don’t last – especially when it comes to footwear. I’ve tried a few pairs of ballet pumps at the cheapest end of the market and they were pretty shoddy – I’ve also had [...]

New Season Shapes and How to Create Them.

Posted · 9 Comments

As you’ll no doubt know by now, I have spent the last week covering the shows at London Fashion Week and reporting back on them for Triumph Lingerie. As they were the official catwalk lingerie providers, my focus was on the shapes and silhouettes that the designers had created for next season and I wanted [...]

A Springtime Feerie…

Posted · 11 Comments

Um. Have you ever seen a bottle-top prettier? Does this not appeal to the five-to-ten year-old in you? (And the fifteen, twenty-five, fifty, eighty year-old too?) It’s a fairy sitting on a flower, for crying out loud! Things just don’t get more girly than this! Van Cleef & Arpels, hugely fabulous and luxurious jewellers, are [...]

The (Creepy) Tate Modern Tanks

Posted · 3 Comments

I loved the Topshop showspace at London Fashion Week – it was in the old oil tanks at the Tate Modern. They are used as exhibition spaces and they have a very stark, industrial feel. As you’d expect, I suppose, considering they used to be tanks. That held oil. I find it a little bit [...]
