If your husband offered to take you out for a whole day, what would you choose to do? Would you board an early morning train and go to Paris?
Despite the chilly breeze out there and thanks to an invite to a Kew SS11 collection preview, I have been gazing at Spring and Summer clothes this morning. As I had no one to look after little L, she accompanied me on my trip to the West End. Once we arrived at Kew, I sat her […]
Somewhere I had read about us all moving towards a look that was preliminarily reserved for the porn industry. Fake boobs, fake nails, fake tan – even hair extensions and b(l)each blond hair had initially only been associated with the world of Dirk Diggler. Since The Only Way is Essex at the latest, we should […]
It’s been a classic case of too much on my plate for a while now. So much on my plate actually that I didn’t find the time to spend a Selfridge’s gift voucher, which I received with glee as a birthday present from Big M. In July. When I raided through my winter wardrobe the […]

She even made her Manolo’s star in the award’s trophy: That […]
We have a winner! It’s Tish @ A femme d’un certain age. Dear Tish, I hope you will have lots of fun scrubbing and buffing and creaming and pampering yourself. Prends soin de toi! And don’t forget to email me your mailing address.
