Sunday Tittle Tattle

1) I just typed Sunday Tired Tattle by mistake! Do you think my brain is trying to tell me something? I’m feeling a little out of sorts – possibly because of my shockingly poor diet recently (see yesterday’s post) but mainly, I think, because this year has just been so bloody hectic! My brain whizzes around at…

Eating Crap, Feeling Crap.

For the cynics who don’t believe the old adage, you are what you eat, let me tell you about my little accidental experiment. I say accidental because I didn’t really know that I was partaking in a self-inflicted health sabotage until about two weeks in – perhaps it should be called an unwitting experiment rather than an accidental…

Step Away from the Sale.

 I’ve been ever so good recently. Ever so, ever so good. I can’t remember the last time I bought something fashion-related – it’s all curtains and wallpaper and “which mixer tap do you like?” at the moment. So it’s almost a shame that I stumbled upon the LK Bennett Autumn sale – it’s far too…

Creme Puff: Anecdotes, Adverts and some Surprising Results!

This week Max Factor asked me to don my detective’s hat* (can’t find it, but I will locate it in time for Friday’s vlog, promise) and do some beauty research to celebrate 60 years of their pressed powder, Creme Puff.

You’re instantly dismayed (or perhaps charmed, depends what floats your boat) by the impossibly small elevator and bedroom and the…

Bois d’Orange: Desperately Clinging on to Summer

Injecting some much-needed sunshine into this rainy week we have Roger & Gallet’s Creme Sublime Or perfumed body cream and Huile Sublime Bois d’Orange nourishing oil. Just look at those beautiful honeyed colours! I took this photo in front of a wicker hamper to make it feel all harvest festival-y, do hope that you appreciate the effort. Now that…

Emergency Random House-Moving Video…

I’m so sorry – this video is quite random because I filmed the main part of it weeks ago, but when I went to try and create something last week I couldn’t find my big camera or my tripod or my lights or anything. Turned out that they were in the box that was at the…

Sunday Tittle Tattle

1) What a week! No sooner had I moved into my new house (yes I’m loving it, yes I have been spending an inordinate amount of time watching little birds dart in and out of the trees and the bird houses and staring at the river) than I had to whizz off again and spend half the week…
