A FESTIVE NIGHT AWAY AT THE ROYAL YORK HOTEL

THE Royal York Hotel took my breath away. And that’s not something I say lightly. (At. All.) I was invited to stay by the hotel, a couple of weeks ago to check out their huge refurbishment which has recently seen the hotel restored to it’s fine glory. And to also check out their new restaurant and shiny craft ale and cocktails bar (a perfect pairing for the husband and I.)

FIVE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT THIS CHRISTMAS

IT’s nearly here. The big day! The day every child in the land is excitedly waiting for. The day that comes with all the expectations, all the hopes and all the stress. The day that many people are longing for. The day that many other people will be dreading. Christmas Day. For most of us there will be presents, a turkey dinner, booze and plenty of it. (If we’re lucky.) However

A VELVET LITTLE BLACK DRESS FOR CHRISTMAS

I’M sat here surrounded by gift wrap and festive mess… So it seems only right that I share with you another festive style post today! A little more low key than my previous post, but still suitably Christmassy, today’s post was inspired by comfort. Yes folks, comfort. Because whilst I do love a heavy dose of glamour in my wardrobe, when it comes to stuffing my face with Christmas food

ELSIE & HER FAVOURITE RAINCOAT

I HAVEN’T done an ‘Elsie style post’ for ages! Donkeys in fact. So the other day, when there was a break in the heavy rain we’ve been having, I decided to take my wee poppet outside and encourage her to take part in her very own ‘photoshoot’. She was striking all kinds of poses – some of them worked and some of them didn’t quite work so well (!) -but

AFTERNOON TEA AT BETTYS WITH MY MUM

I ENJOYED an incredible afternoon tea at Bettys the other week. On a cold yet beautiful winter’s Day, I travelled to the historic city of York with my lovely Mum and we experienced the most delicious champagne afternoon tea, as Bettys‘ guests. Quite frankly, if there’s a finer way to spend a few precious hours with your Mum, well I’d be amazed because this really was quite something. I often talk

MAKE TIME FOR LURVE (WITH THE FANTASY BOX)

IF you’re of a nervous disposition or reading this in a crowded office, you may want to pop back another time! Because folks, I’m about to start talking about sex. Oh yes baby! Making love. Getting jiggy. Being naughty. Whatever you want to call it (or like to call it), let’s face it, sex is one of those fabulous pleasures in life, that costs nothing but feels totally amazing. (If

MAKING A (JEWELLERY) STATEMENT THIS CHRISTMAS

IT’S Christmas, it’s party time, so there’s only one thing for it. It’s time to roll out the bling and make a statement. As a real ‘magpie’ of a gal, there’s nothing I love more in the style world, than some sparkle or glitz. Particularly at this time of year when it’s sooo dark and sooo grey. Dark days and nights demand some twinkle, do they not? And there’s no easier

ISN’T IT TIME WE GAVE ALL WOMEN A CHANCE?

A FEW weeks ago, I was blatantly ignored by a group of women. I smiled, said hello and looked around the room, waiting for a group of women, whom I didn’t know, to respond. But nothing came. (Talk about awkward.) For a second or two, I thought perhaps they haven’t heard me or that someone, anyone, in the crowded room would shoot me a friendly smile any time soon. But
