Fashion Faux Pas or Fashion Forward?

  This would be bathroom mat may seem hard to style at first, but teamed with a pair of black skinny jeans and a simple sweater, it’s less muppet and more à la mode, don’t you think? Let’s face it, we’ve all had a fashion faux pas moment or two that’s been worthy of a phone-call to the fashion police. I shake my head when I think of those heydays when I really

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil Review

It’s no wonder that this little gem is loved by models and beauty insiders all over the world and can be found in just about everyone who’s anyone’s handbag or salle de bain. It’s just that good. Well, it is French après tout! At this time of year, our skin needs a little extra TLC. Central heating, biting cold winds and (my arch enemy) humidity are just some of the problems we face

Are You Faux Real?

As an animal lover, sometimes it’s tricky navigating my way through the fashion world. Leather boots, leather jackets and angora (gasp!) are everyday occurrences in the big bad world of fashion and sometimes it’s hard to know what to do to do right. So what about the fur situation? Well, I’m out. But I’ll be enjoying my turkey at Christmas so what’s the difference really? Instead of getting on a high horse,

The Coat Vote

Choosing the right winter coat is a personal thing. You can buy into the reigning trend (this season it’s pink – yes, it is) or you can stick to something that will take you seamlessly from season to season, year after year. Much as retailers (us included!) want you buying all year, every year, a winter coat is best selected with some care and consideration. It’s meant to be wearable,

The Muse ~ Faye Dunaway

Faye Dunaway has starred in some seriously stylish movies, The Thomas Crown Affair, Network and Chinatown to name a few, but its Arthur Penn’s iconic Bonnie and Clyde (arguably the most stylish film of all time) that she is most identified with. And little wonder; it simply never goes out of style. Set in the dusty mid-west during the grim 1930’s, costume designer Theadora Van Runkle’s killer ensembles (quite literally) remain current

The Snack Attack!

Picture the scene. It’s three o’clock in the office. That healthy salad at lunch hasn’t quite cut it. The blood sugar’s low and that to-do list is not getting any shorter. While it’s tempting to succumb to the dreaded ‘snack attack’, rather than reaching for those chocolate éclairs or the Nutella jar (it’s happened!), be prepared instead. Keep a few healthier alternatives at your desk. Some nuts and mixed seeds

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish Review

Gel nails have been both a blessing and a curse in my life. Sure, the long lasting colour and chip resistant polish is a bonus, as are the blissful few minutes spent getting pampered by the lovely ladies at Flamingo (my go-to beauty salon du choix) but it is an expensive habit. Particularly if like me, you want to change your nail colour often.  I may not stray too far

One Last Fling…

What with this Indian summer we appear to be having of late, I find myself a little thrown by what to wear. It’s late September and instead of reaching for my Ralph Lauren-inspired equestrian ensemble; I’m having one last fling with the nineties. Maybe it’s sheer nostalgia, September does that to us all what with school starting and what not, or maybe it’s just that I’ve watched Iggy’s ‘Fancy’ a little too

Never Underestimate The Power Of Red Lipstick

For an instant pick-me-up, wear red lipstick. Preferably pillar box red lipstick but if that’s a little too intense, try something with a raspberry or vin rouge tint instead. It looks good on everyone and will never go out of style. Always keep one red lippy in your purse – you never know when you might need it!   Beyoncé     Rita Ora     Jessica Alba

“… this is known as Fashion Week.”

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.”Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) Fashion Month is well and truly underway and NYFW was only the beginning. As LFW shapes up nicely, let’s hark back to the city that’s so good they named it twice. The eagerly anticipated New York Fashion Week has wrapped up and set the
