It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue

Pastels are a no-brainer come springtime, it's almost as "groundbreaking" as florals, but let's face it, even if you live in a sea of black…

The Neckerchief: How To Wear Guide

There was a time when I would have associated the neckerchief with something my granny likely wore. Or maybe someone French. But, as I've gotten…

Perfect with a cup of coffee. Go on, have a little scroll.

A Postcard from Corfu; Give Greece a Chance.

A girls’ holiday to a Greek island is a rite of passage and no, we did not go to Kavos. We did it in style (and, dare we say it, with a little more class). I think it’s safe to say that Kommeno and Iōannēs will never be the same again. Holidaygate (coined by the wonderful Aisling) was, as the word suggests, a bit of a disaster.  Co-ordinating a lunch date

Introducing: Maison Scotch

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.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

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

Lancôme Absolu Voyage Make Up Palette Review

“… Flying makes me nervous. I get uneasy seeing the National Guard go through my makeup case.” – Carrie Bradshaw Tell me about it. Squeezing my lotions and potions into a teeny little bag (a freezer bag no less!) for a globe trotting fashionista like me is so not chic. Once upon a time I scoffed at make-up palettes, but now, what with a shared bathroom with nada space and

Blazin’ Squad

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?
