The Sunday Tittle Tattle: A Personal Goal

Posted · 40 Comments

1) Wooo! This week I have achieved a massive personal goal and finished the first draft of a novel. I started it when I was at uni, doing my MA, and it was starting to drag on so I bit the bullet and got through to the end. I don’t know whether anyone will ever read [...]

The Hush Winter Parka

Posted · 7 Comments

I like a good parka, me. Brilliant for roughing it around the countryside but equally handy for when you want something relaxed and cosy to wear over your smarter stuff. I am a particular fan of the “parka over party dress” look, as championed by Kate Moss and the other highly sociable girls of the late [...]

The Pillow Spray for Instant Deep Sleep.

Posted · 18 Comments

I have a proper thing for This Works’ original Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. I get twitchy without it. It sends me into the kind of deep sleep that could only otherwise be achieved after a couple of large glasses of heavy Chianti and an episode of the Antiques Roadshow.

All of the face creams and lotions above are very calming, I find, and though they each vary in their density and richness, the final results are the same; happy, moisturised [...]

Buying a Winter Coat? Read this First…

Posted · 13 Comments

And here it is; the Fluffy Coat and Faux Fur lookbook. Do not buy a winter coat until you’ve seen these beauties; they’re warm, comfortable and totally on-trend (if you bother with that kind of thing!) and work equally well worn casually as they do thrown over something smart. I’ve already told you about the Unreal Fur coats (see [...]

Sturdy-meets-Sexy: LK Bennett’s Leona Boots

Posted · 8 Comments

I’ve been busy shooting fashion features and videos, so do excuse the sudden torrent of style posts! I will attempt to balance them with plenty of beauty, because I know how you get withdrawal symptoms… These boots are too good not to talk about, though, and I have an inkling that they will sell very well and [...]

Unreal Fur: This Season’s Investment Coat

Posted · 10 Comments

  There’s a huge trend for big, fluffy teddy-bear coats and faux-furs, this season. And I must say that although big, furry coats are very attention-grabbing, (something I’m usually not too comfortable with, believe it or not), there’s something almost protective in their massiveness and fluffy bulk. They make you feel strong and confident rather than [...]
