Pixi Beauty…My thoughts

Back in February I was invited to an event held  at Fenwick hosted by Pixi Beauty’s Global Director of Make up Amanda Bell. I of course  had heard of Pixi but had never actually tried any of their skincare or make up. Pixi was set up 10 years ago by Petra Strand who has over 20 years experience as a make up artist and product developer. The brand is vegan friendly and is not tested on animals.. Pixi have two extensive ranges. Skintreats and the Make up range. I have been trying some key products from both. I am always really very careful with what I use on my skin. I had eczema as a child that will sometimes flare up and now that I am…

Bringing out the Cowgirl within!…

Bringing out the Cowgirl within!…

After last week’s snow and with a tiny hint of Spring in the air this week I am going full on Spring/Summer wardrobe planning…!! No not really…. unfortunately I am not that organised! I am however thinking dresses and ankle boots. A look I love and always embrace every year. I adore my Chloe Susanna boots that my husband bought me for Christmas but I am also a huge fan of  the Western style. Yesterday I found some flared jeans at the back of my ridiculously untidy wardrobe and wore them with my new Sosander boots. I even braved a teeny tiny bit of leg exposure!  I loved this outfit and it actually prompted me to write this little post.         Black… View Post
My love for red and pink……

My love for red and pink……

As you can probably tell by my Instagram feed recently I am having a ‘red and pink’ moment. Like with many things I am sure I will get bored and move onto some other craze but in the meantime my love continues. It is  an odd one because people say that to wear bold colours together or an outfit of all one colour you need to be very self confident. I am actually far from confident but as soon as I reached the ripe old age of forty decided that I will wear what I love. Of course that doesn’t  mean boob tubes and mini skirts, god no how scary would that be?! ..You know what I mean though! Adding just one accessory can completely… View Post
HANSINE…..dreaming of sunny days

HANSINE…..dreaming of sunny days

    Back in December I was invited to afternoon tea and a preview of the new collection by Hansine at the Dover Street Townhouse in Soho. Dresses and cake what more could I possibly want?!!… I guess it did actually feel quite odd looking at resort wear when it was freezing outside but as you know I am a summer girl at heart and resortwear is my absolute favourite thing. I’m not sure why but I always seem to have so many more summer clothes and love to invest in key pieces that I bring out every holiday. As half term is coming up (far too quickly for my liking) I thought it was a good time to let you know about this fabulous… View Post
AN EVENING WITH TRINNY LONDON

AN EVENING WITH TRINNY LONDON

Hello…. Happy New Year! Let’s hope its a really amazing year for everyone that brings health, happiness, love, fun, success and general well being. On to my first blog post for 2018. I have lots of ideas for this year which will include a complete change to my website. I am really excited but know I have a lot of work to do. Watch this little space….! I thought I would start the year with a little write up on my evening with Trinny London. I am certainly not a beauty blogger and would never pretend to be. I just wanted to give an overview of the products, what I have tried and my thoughts… Last week along with some very stylish ladies I attended… View Post
Young Teen Girls – Gift Ideas….

Young Teen Girls – Gift Ideas….

I have been asked a few times now to do a blog post with some ideas for girls. I have to say that I am really struggling this year with what to buy Alice. Maybe it is slightly easier with older teen girls, I’m not sure…I think it doesn’t help that I am not remotely organised and keep telling myself that I have bags of time! At just 13 Alice has recently become extremely specific about what she likes and doesn’t like. She attends a girls school which is really quite old fashioned (they measure the older girls skirts to check the length!) so she really isn’t into make up, nails, dresses or anything too girly! She loves clothes, bags and shoes (no idea where… View Post
A LITTLE CHRISTMAS SPARKLE ….

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS SPARKLE ….

It is that time of year when we dig out the trusty little black dress, add some sequins to our wardrobe and maybe become slightly more adventurous with our outfits.  Party season is upon us and if you are anything like me you will be having trouble deciding what to wear for each occasion. Not everybody loves full on sequins and there is so much choice both on the High St and online it can becoming slightly overwhelming. I have put together an edit of a few of my favourites pieces. I have to say it was very difficult making the selection as I love so much from the High street as well as top end investment pieces! Stay away from the handbags Jane!  … View Post
My TOP SHOP EDIT…

My TOP SHOP EDIT…

I literally have been inundated with Black Friday deals and emails. I love shopping but I’m not sure why this always makes me feel slightly stressed and panicky. Maybe its the ‘FOMO” fear of missing out thing or just when you are not organised with a list of presents to buy, looking for something very specific or have hours to sit at your computer!…It can drive you nuts! So I decided to keep things simple and do a quick edit of my current favourite pieces at Topshop     This is one of my favourites. I would wear with a tuxedo suit or black trousers, heels and a biker jacket. Absolutely love….     Classic, a jumpsuit is always a winner and very easy to… View Post
Finery London favourites …

Finery London favourites …

I thought I would write a very quick edit of my current favourites from Finery London as they are currently offering 20% with the Promo code FINERY20. It is that time of year when we all receive endless offers via email and sometimes it becomes overwhelming and I for one start to panic about dreaded Christmas shopping! I have chosen items I love that I feel would work with my current wardrobe but Finery London do offer possible gift options so it may be worth considering with todays offer…I also look for investment pieces like the gorgeous buttery leather burgundy biker jacket and my the dream olive leather trench!     I love this autumn maxi dress, we all need a winter maxi in our wardrobe! I… View Post
