Twat in a hat.

0V6A0129

Standing on a busy street, or in this case busy pier, trying your very best to manipulate your limbs into various shapes that might make you look chic and trendy, in reality inevitably results in looking a bit like you’re trying to undress without using your arms… Well, it does for me anyway. It’s certainly taught me to (try to) have a ... Read More »

Good Genes.

0V6A0036

Want to know a little secret? When it comes to beauty blogging I have one simple rule; if it isn’t something I would recommend to my best buddy, Lucie, it has no place on my blog. Skincare included. Now, I guess I’ve never posted about skincare before because I’ve never really found anything that excited me enough to make me want to ... Read More »

Candle addicts anonymous.

0V6A0038

You know you’ve got a bit of a problem when you spend Friday night dressed in nothing but PJs and a maniacal grin, blogging about your favourite candles… It’s not that I simply enjoy candles, I need them. The further south the wick travels, the more anxious I become that I’ll soon be a sad, lonely candle-widow. So, naturally, a few days ... Read More »

The awkward blogger…

0V6A0076

There is a very good reason why it’s very, very rare to see any fashion or outfit type posts over here on my blog, namely that I am the world’s most AWKWARD poser. The problem I have is that the harder I try to pose, the worse I tend to look. My husband, Stef, patiently tells me to just move around, ... Read More »

Mountain Love.

0V6A0065

We tried everything to shake our New Year’s Day hangover: eating mountains of carbs, lying down, complaining, promising “never again” and making constant, long drawn-out droning noises, but nothing was shifting the feeling of despair. Then we remembered we had the perfect cure, just 5 minutes away. So Stef, Gracie (AKA ‘mountain bear cub’) and I took the rustic gondola up through ... Read More »

Skate Date.

IMG_3667

Somerset House at Christmas time is pretty sensational. My husband Stef and I were lucky enough to be invited down for an evening of Champagne and skating. A rather dangerous combination, particularly for me, the clumsiest lady in all the land on land, let alone on ICE. Fisrtly, we need to talk about this Christmas tree.  This one is possibly the ...

A Winter Dip… (my final thoughts on Philips Lumea)

IMG_1600

One morning, the low-hanging blanket of grey cloud that persistently hangs over a wintery London had decided it was time to take a break from its loyal post, peeling away to expose a perfect, unspoilt blue sky. Stef and I had also happened to wake up with a sense of optimism and clarity, which could be a lot to do with the fact that our ... Read More »

Almost a year…

2

It’s been almost a year since we welcomed our new little friend, Grayson, into the world… I can’t quite believe it. I don’t think it will ever completely sink in that I’m a real life ‘mum’ now… It feels like only yesterday that I was cycling in circles on our driveway and demanding that Mum made my pony tail as smooth and bump free as Shanna’s from school ...

Feeling Festive.

IMG_3328

I’m fully aware that this will make me sound like some sort of strange old lady who shops in M&S and has the last four Country Living magazines precisely fanned over my chestnut coffee table, but I’ll say it anyway. One of my absolute favourite things about our beautiful British winter is the colour burgundy. Whenever the winter solstice casts its icy spell over ... Read More »

Philips lumea – my initial thoughts

phillips4_1

Let me start by saying there is nothing wrong with being pale.   That English rose, porcelain skin look is and always will be timelessly beautiful. But sadly these words of reason have come too late for my fake tan addiction and I’m destined to grow old and grey orange. At least, that’s what I thought until last week when I decided orange ...
