LIKE most women I love beautiful dresses. Especially black ones. Versatile and elegant, a little black dress can you take you from day into night with ease and panache. Acclaimed style icon Wallis Simpson wasn’t wrong when she said: “When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place.”  So when I heard of a new online retailer which aims to make hunting for your

Celebrating my pregnancy and the bump…

Now 33 weeks pregnant, I can well and truly say that I have fallen in love with my ever-growing bump over the last few months. So much so, that I think after baby Portman has made his / her arrival, I’m actually going to miss my bump, quite a lot.

The pressure of perfection and why we should all be easier on ourselves & each other

I WAS going through my Twitter feed the other day when I came across a horrible and rather depressing article on the famous Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Pout of Approval: Bundle MacLaren Millinery

ONE of the best bits about being a freelance journalist is coming across amazing talent and fabulous brands. A few weeks ago, I was writing a fashion feature for a magazine on wedding guest attire and stumbled across the most incredible range of headpieces by the supremely talented Bundle MacLaren. Glancing through her lookbook, I instantly fell head over heels for her breathtakingly beautiful designs and couldn’t wait to share

Things I’ve loved this week…

IT’S my favourite day of the week so it’s time for some ‘Pouting In Heels’ appreciation! Here’s what I’ve loved this week… 1) Ice lollies – I know the weather hasn’t been kind and is by no means ‘summery’ at the moment but I cannot get enough of these little beauties, morning, noon and night.
