Finally, I can now use my ‘proper’ camera (kind of)

I LOVE photography and I adore taking snazzy images so you can imagine my delight when my husband gave me a very swanky (and expensive) camera for Christmas a few years ago. I’ve used it loads since then. It’s travelled to Florence and Rome, captured Elsie as a newborn, snapped our loved up friends on their wedding days and more besides. But here’s the thing. Besides pressing the button and

Film Styles to Look Forward To (Or Not)

IF there’s two things that I love, it’s fashion and film. So I’m delighted to share this post with you from fashion writer Elizabeth Jones about futuristic fashion in film and how it can (and often does) influence how we dress. Massive shoulder pads anyone?! ;-) Enjoy! ————— By Elizabeth Jones IT’S easy to look back and judge the fashion trends of the past. Whether we find ourselves waxing nostalgic

Five reasons to visit Florence

YESTERDAY I was looking through some old holiday photographs and I started to think about all the incredible places that I’ve visited which have a special place in my heart. I’ve been very fortunate to have seen as much of the world as I have (although there’s still so much more I NEED to see!) but when it comes to those places that I will remember fondly forever, I’ve got

A letter to phone calls: Why I hate speaking on the phone

  Dear phone calls, I’ve struggled with you over the years. And I’ve done my best to fall in love with you, like you even. But it’s time to admit that well, in all honesty, I just don’t like you very much. In fact – please don’t be hurt by this – but I actually like you very little. I don’t know why. To be fair, it’s not like I

A lady in red & a rainbow necklace

SOMETIMES you buy something so wonderful that you just can’t wait to wear it. Like this multicoloured beaded ‘rainbow’ necklace that I found in the online Topshop sale a couple of months ago. As soon as it arrived, I couldn’t wait to wear it but as it’s such a statement piece, it’s not – unfortunately – the easiest thing to wear. It needs a simple neckline. It needs the chance

Ridiculously simple tips to improve your writing

WRITING is one of my favourite things to do. It’s also how I make a living, so I like to think that when it comes to stringing a sentence or two together I know what I’m doing! ;-) Not everyone finds it easy though. It is, after all, a craft and to be honest, even the best writers are always looking at how they can improve and make their work

SPONSORED: Gorgeous ‘Duckface’ Anna Chancellor models for M&S

WHEN it comes to the British High Street, there is no greater shopping institution – in my book – than our amazing M&S. I say ‘OUR’ because I honestly cannot imagine a life without M&S. I mean, can you? It’s as British to me as fish & chips, pints of ale and cosy pubs. A real institution. And so, who better to represent the classy giant of the high street this

Seaside stripes and denim

OH I do love to be beside the seaside… Especially when I’m dressed comfortably and braced for the Great British weather! You may have noticed that it was a little quiet on Pouting In Heels last week and you would be right, it was, as I enjoyed a week off holidaying with my husband, Elsie and some of my family on the beautiful North Yorkshire coast. Based in a lovely
