I USED to think the saying that ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ was a bit of nonsense. Until… I got my own diamonds, when my husband bought me my beloved antique 1920s engagement ring and then? Well, let’s just say I finally realised what all the fuss was about. Oh the sparkle! Oh the joy! Oh the feeling of wearing something so exquisite! As precious gems go, diamonds are
HELLO you beauties! It’s been donkeys since I’ve done a vlog and seeing as I’m feeling much chirpier and brighter today after weeks of feeling pretty bloomin’ awful, I thought today I’d have an ol’ dabble with this video malarkey. What’s it all about? Well, just some food for thought really. A couple of questions to ask yourself, two things that are so important but that we often forget when
CHRISTMAS is coming…the goose is getting fat. (Or something like that). But are you ready? And more importantly, is your home ready for the festive onslaught? It might feel yonks away yet, but let’s face it, Christmas is almost upon us. And so it’s time to get prepared. I love this time of year – even if it does involve a lot of work – because, well, it’s just magical.
BEFORE we get cracking with today’s post, I just want to take a moment to say I’m sorry… That my blog posts have been a bit sporadic of late.

IF you’re a fan of The Body Shop, and let’s face it who isn’t?… Well, then you are going to adore their new ‘Oils Of Life’ range, specifically created for – *coughs* – the more mature skin. Yep, inside I may still feel like a teenager, but the truth is evident. Now in my mid-thirties (when did that happen?!) it’s time to start looking after this skin of mine and
WINTER is here. Or certainly it feels like it, doesn’t it?! The dark nights and the cold mornings. I love this time of year, but like all of us, I struggle to rise from my cosy warm bed when it’s time to get up and face the day. So I was a little thrilled when the thoughtful team at belVita sent me a special hamper to help get my days
A FEW weeks ago, I had the absolute privilege of having my hair cut by one of the UK’s top hairdressers… The very lovely and amusing Alexander Turnbull who’s won numerous British hairdressing awards including North Eastern Hairdresser of The Year and British Best Newcomer Of The Year. I was invited by Matrix Haircare (part of the L’Oreal group) to have my hair cut, pampered and styled by Alexander using their
DO you drink enough water?! I know I don’t. Or should I say, I didn’t until the lovely people at Sodastream got in touch and asked me to take part in their ‘hydration challenge’ – swapping my endless cups of tea for glasses of sparkling water. When I was a little girl, I longed for a Sodastream as all the ‘cool kids’ at school had one at their homes. But
