Ah, jeez. Here we go again being remarkably hard to please. Sigh. While many an A-lister, and Heidi Klum, strut their stuff at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, only a few good women stood out against a fairly mediocre red carpet. Not for lack of trying mind you. It’s just all a little… “Meh”. Maybe it’s because it’s January. Let’s face it; nothing looks good in January except Leonardo DiCaprio’s face.
For those of you living under a rock, it’s the 1st of December meaning the countdown to Christmas is well and truly on. Crept up fast, right? Worry not, here’s how you can make the most of Decembrrr. 1. First things first! Be prepared! Get that Secret Santa present bought early, because no one wants to be stuck in the hustle and bustle of stressed out, last minute shoppers. Trust
It’s October and autumn is officially upon us (hooray!). So I have decided to help you make the most of this season with a ‘to-do’ list. Embrace plaid. Checked scarves are everywhere. Yes we may look like a walking picnic blanket but we love it! Grab your apron and try your hand at making pumpkin soup. This seasonal favourite will keep you warm on those cold evenings and better yet
Now that fall is in full swing (not that summer made much of an appearance), we are fully prepared to embrace the Knit List and in particular, take a deep breath, the Polo Neck. Margaret is not a fan. I believe she used the word “torturous”. Yikes. Let’s see if this can change her mind. You see, the Polo Neck is one of those humble pieces that never gets much
When it comes to furniture and television, Scandinavia is having a good run. Margaret can’t get enough of those grey Danish murder mysteries and goodness knows she loves a bit of grey. That’s why this season’s collection is really tickling our fancy and we are simply non-stop Nordic. Let’s face it; you can’t walk down the high street without witnessing Swedish giant’s; H&M and its little sister Cos. Even my wine glasses
Packing for a holiday can sometimes be a little stressful (just ask Margaret) and even more so if you are squeezing your essentials into a teeny tiny carry-on, panic can escalate pretty quickly then. If sun, sea, sand and lots of yoga are on the schedule then you can opt for beach-chic simplicity which means that you needn’t worry about packing the kitchen sink. Luckily for you, we have taken
Maison Scotch, from the house of Amsterdam-based label Scotch & Soda, has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. Laid back and feminine, the eclectic collection is the perfect blend of Parisian chic meets New York City girl and has a little edge to make just enough of a statement without looking too try-hard. Eclectic and yet all the while exuding elegance (with a little nonchalance, just because) Maison Scotch never forgets the
Budapest. And we’re excited. As much as I love lazing on the beach, supping a mojito; it’s hard to beat a city break avec les filles. Strolling through a city, sipping un café au lait is right up my street. Throw in a couple of my best friends and it’s a great way to recharge those batteries and the culture vulture in me gets a spin out too. So far, so
No, we aren’t talking crossroads. You will never be at a crossroads when you have a navy blazer handy and here’s why. Firstly, it’s quintessential Parisian chic. And who doesn’t want to be a teeny bit Parisian. Even the Kardashian’s are having a go. A blazer is one of Ines de la Fressange’s Magnificent Seven; the seven wardrobe essentials that every woman simply must own. So, who’s to argue with that?
Spring is in the air, sort of, and that means an onslaught of bloomin’ florals. Interpret that as you will. The thing about florals is that, pretty as they are, especially the vintage inspired prints, they can, if not careful, tread into dangerous territory – dare we say it, ‘twee’ – or it can be a little in your face. Neither is good. So keeping that in mind, and that
