1) My sister, Kate @crillystyle wearing a blue Marge Simpson wig. It simply made my entire week – she’s such an absolute card and never fails to make me laugh. I know that it’s Mothering Sunday, but let’s include sisters too! And all of the men as well – why not! I bloody love my family.
2) Here’s Mr Bear looking a little bit like an alien emerging from a spaceship, with his tiny little spindly legs and big head! He is, in fact, walking the very narrow ledge above the bath – and the bath was full. Little risk-taker, that cat.
3) If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you may not have seen this fabulous skirt from Milly – it’s not out until the summer, I borrowed it from their PR company, Halpern. Isn’t it magnificent? So unusual – I love the way that the fabric pieces overlap like roof shingles. My friend said that I looked like an Urban Fairy and I thought, “do you know what? That is exactly what I wanted to look like!” I’ll keep you updated as to the drop date – they are making it in lime green and hot pink too, but I think the black version is most wearable and so, so chic. I had loads of comments on it, even from random passers-by!
4) Lastly, a bit of beauty news for you. Aromatherapy Associates have launched a new bath and shower oil called “Inner Strength” – I haven’t yet tried it, but if it’s anything like their other oils it will be highly effective. They do quite a range of different oils – you can try a selection of them in their sets (see FeelUnique.com) and they all do something different – revive you, relax you, get you to sleep at night. They are incredible, truly. The new one is slightly different in that it’s been designed for those battling illness or struggling during stressful times. It is said to help focus the mind and calm the thoughts – sounds pretty useful in these modern days of stress and fast-living. The president and founder of Aromatherapy Associates, Geraldine Howard, is currently battling cancer and this is the essence she has formulated to give her strength, courage and a positive frame of mind. 10% of proceeds from the sales of this oil will go to the Defence Against Cancer Association. It’s £39 from Aromatherapy Associates.
