Cat Brush Review. Yes, I have Stooped That Low.

british shorthair grooming

Ah, you knew it would happen: a cat grooming post. I actually have a few more planned, too! People who have no interest in cats, cat-grooming or rubber nubbly brushes, look away now. There’s plenty to keep you occupied elsewhere, including (now here’s a treat!) my top-to-toe animal print tutorial which published exactly one year ago today. Miaow. People who are interested in … Read More

Where’s My Cat?

g-paws gps cat tracker

Thoughts on this, pet owners: a GPS tracker for your cat or dog. There’s a new pet gadget in town and it’s called the G-Paws – as seen on The Secret Life of the Cat, which I have yet to watch. (It’s on my list: I’m waiting until I have a nice night in with a glass of red wine!) This … Read More

Crime Scene Cats

I am currently amusing myself by taking pictures of my sleeping cat and making them look like crime scenes. See above. They tend to work really well if you put them through Instagram and hit that little sunshine (contrast) button above the effects – it gives a very realistic shadow around the body! Morbid, yes, but also fun. Especially when … Read More

Sunday Tittle Tattle

skincare beauty review

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) I am about to start testing a new product from Kiehl’s – the Skin Rescuer. It doesn’t launch for a while yet but I want to give it a proper go before I write a review. This product interests me because … Read More

Do I Look Fat Like This?

mr bear british shorthair

Sorry, I simply couldn’t resist. Poor old Mr Bear. It really is the angle, you know. He’s not actually overweight! Apparently British Shorthair cats can grow up to 10kg, and Mr Bear is around 6kg. He still looks teeny to me, but then when I see other cats I realise just how chunky he is. The big, cuddly, ball of fluff. As … Read More

Mr Bear the Cat: First Ever Interview

mr bear british shorthair cat

Yes, I do realise that Mr Bear is a cat and cannot, in fact, answer interview questions. I’m not crazy. Yet. But I thought you might like to see a little video interview that I did with Pets Pyjamas, a luxury online store for posh pet products! I must say that Mr Bear was extremely well-behaved throughout the interview and all of … Read More

The Dancing Cat

Cat Dancing

Just a little light comic relief for you all on this fine September Saturday. As I stab myself repeatedly in the eye with a biro (essay hell, don’t ask) you can watch my cat dancing with a feather on a stick. Don’t say I never give you anything. PS: Mr AMR is cross that I haven’t set this video to … Read More

Mulberry Bayswater Silky Snake Bag. (And Mr Bear.)

Mulberry Bayswater Silky Snake

In case you haven’t heard me harping on: this is my latest luxury acquisition. The Mulberry Bayswater in Silky Snake Print. A timeless classic with a modern, unusual twist and I am absolutely over the moon with it! Mulberry have got things just right with the Bayswater style, which is probably why it’s a constant bestseller – though you can’t … Read More

Wet-Wipes for Pets?

John Paul Pet Wipes Review

Ladies, Gentlemen and Furry Friends, I present to you: Pet Wet-Wipes. Something I bet you never knew you needed! I certainly never knew I needed them until Mr Bear (pictured above) decided that one of his favourite places to hide was inside the fireplace. Not great when you have cream carpets throughout almost your entire house and a husband who … Read More
