Friday Five: Easy ways to help you relax

AS the fabulous Carrie once said in Sex & The City, everyone these days seems to be ‘sooooo busy!’. True isn’t it? Is it just me or have we all seem to have lost the plot a little and forgotten how to totally relax and rest up? Personally I blame smartphones. Controversial I know. Yes they are amazing, yes I couldn’t live without mine either but come on…how many of

STYLE: Me and my new bangs. A life changing hair cut?

LAST Saturday I had my hair cut and I honestly think it has changed my life. What I hear you cry? How can it be? I know, I know. It sounds utterly bonkers and no-one is more surprised to say that than me but I absolutely think it has. My new hair do or my new ‘bangs’ to be precise really have shaken things up.

FRIDAY FIVE: What we can learn from the ‘Fabulous Fashionistas’

I’VE already decided what I’m going to wear if I live to be a ripe ol’ age. I’m going to wear ballgowns and over the top frocks alongside lots of faux fur and huge sparkly jewellery.

LIFE: A Saturday night with Germaine Greer

AT about 8pm on Saturday night, I was battling with myself not to cry. I wasn’t watching X-Factor or a sad soppy film. Nor was I at a wedding or in the middle of a heated argument. I was listening to the brilliant, passionate and totally inspirational Germaine Greer speak at my local theatre and I was trying not to cry because I didn’t want to end up a sniffling,

STYLE: And bags of it…

LONG before I became a high heels lover, my first fashion obsession was with handbags. Yes, they were my first style love. And although heels may have since taken over my fashion lust, I still adore them, as much as I once did.

STYLE: My favourite AW looks from the high street

I ADORE this time of year. The glorious colours of nature, the beautiful natural light, the fact that it’s still usually warm enough to enjoy being outside (on most occasions) and the fact that the nights begin to cosily draw in.
