Heart Stealer

20140723-124122-45682270.jpg

A man in uniform makes my heart melt. It appears even the hardest man in uniform can have a the same problem when in front of beautiful ball gown. I came across this image a couple of months ago in British Vogue and have had it on the pin board above my bed ever since. Some men who are very special to my heart are in the forces so this image is a happy reminder of them, their pride and their…

California Dreaming

I find it fascinating learning about the inspiration behind collections and designs, especially when it concerns my favoured brands. The team at the affordable, fun and quirky, online/catalogue brand Joe Browns explain how they came about the design for their Summer California retro men’s t-shirts (one of which is now on sale by the way).

The brief was “boards, bikes and beats” so the entire team…

The other week I was enjoying a girls night in with my mum. I cooked a curry, we sipped on Champagne and watched the film ‘The Good Year’ starring Russell Crowe. Suddenly on screen, Crowe was sat in a French chateau wearing a Middlesex County Cricket Club wool vest, I nearly chocked. This is not only my nearest cricket club but I have a very similar hand-me-down jumper from my brother. Now, I…

This morning I was practising my French reading and doing some work related research by reading Figaro online.

Going to a Summer party, open air cinema, sports, wedding event this weekend but need some inspiration for your hair?

In this warm weather it’s great to stay cool by getting your hair up and I love updos which look complicated but obvs the faff is not so desirable. I fancy giving this Superdrug updo a twist.

Superdrug recommend Elnett hairspray, the smell of which always reminds me of my mum, who in my memory, has never used any other spray and I know many others who swear by it. I rarely use hairspray so can not speak from personal experience but I can vouch for the hair grips!
