Celebrating love in a lavender frock, wedding heels & henna

I’M beginning to think that style posts on my blog are like buses. You wait ages for one to appear then two come along in quick succession! ;-) Anyhow, I couldn’t help but share this outfit with you. An outfit for a glorious wedding on a glorious hot summer’s day. A fusion of East and West as a beautiful Indian princess (Jazz) married her handsome British groom (James). As the

The night I dined with Manolo Blahnik (& German Vogue)

SOMETIMES, there are moments in life that are just so fabulous, you have to pinch yourself really hard to make sure that it’s actually really happening. That you’re not really dreaming and going to wake up and be back to reality with a hard, cold bump. This night, as you can probably imagine, was one of them. I met the legendary Manolo Blahnik many years ago, at a small ‘soiree’

Searching for pots of gold in a vibrant rainbow dress

OK, I wasn’t really searching for pots of gold, however in this multicoloured little number I kinda feel that I should have been! My rainbow ‘dress’ isn’t a dress either. Nope. It’s actually a maxi skirt that I bought last year in Primark for a ridiculous £5 in the sale. It was a complete gamble if I’m honest. Why? Well one, I’m not that keen on maxi skirts. Two, they

HOW TO TAKE A DECENT SELFIE

BEFORE I begin, I feel I need to point out that I am no expert at selfies nor do I think I take the best ones. There are far more qualified people than me (like your supermodels for example) who do it MUCH better however, as a few people have commented on my selfie portraits, I reckon by all accounts, I don’t do too bad a job. Or so Vicki

50 THINGS I KNOW ABOUT MOTHERHOOD

I CAN hardly believe it but it’s true, my beautiful girl will turn two years of age in just a few days time. Just where oh where did my baby go?! As I prepare for Elsie’s birthday celebrations (she’s only requested that I make her a Raa Raa cake people, help!) I’ve also been thinking about the parenting journey that I’ve been on over the past couple of years. When

A QUICK THANK YOU & AND SOME HELPFUL DOMESTIC ABUSE LINKS

OK, I’m a day late, but with a poorly toddler to look after, what can you do?!  Thank you to EVERYONE who commented on or shared my open letter to women in abusive relationships last week. It was a post that I’d wanted to write for a while and in all honesty, one that I was very fearful of posting. Hitting that publish button took me a few seconds and

FRIDAY FIVE: Five good reasons you should definitely give freelancing a whirl

THIS morning I realised that I have now been freelancing for four whole years. Four whole years of blood, sweat and freelancing tears! I can hardly believe it! I jest of course about the tears. In all honesty, it’s been rather incredible. I have spoken much about my love of freelancing before (see here and here) and today I can’t help but talk about it again, with it being my

LIFE: A letter to women in abusive relationships – from a survivor of one, me

EVERY week in the UK two women are killed by a current or former male partner. Yesterday, I also discovered that around 30 women a DAY attempt suicide as a result of domestic violence. Chills your blood doesn’t it? As a woman who survived an abusive relationship in my late teens, I consider myself one of the lucky ones. But for the ones who aren’t so lucky at the moment,
