February City Break

A Whistlestop Visit to Clerkenwell and Faringdon Last year, the fabulously stylish Suzanne Delahunty did a travel blog on Clerkenwell and Faringdon, it looked fascinating and I made a mental note to go and visit the places she recommended. Unbeknown to me, my daughter...

Have you shopped at Chico’s yet?

Feel-good glamour from somewhere a bit different... I have been a shopper at Chico's since being introduced by my glamorous sister in law, who lives in Miami. This shop is aimed at women aged 45 +.  I often find that their fabrics wash well (I really do sound like my...

Five make up products I couldn’t do without

My Top 5   At the end of Desert Island Discs, the contributors are asked what one thing they would take with them. This has always stressed me out a bit, can I take five?!! I had trouble whittling this down to just five, I had to think of which products do I buy...

Winter is coming

Winter home inspiration  As well as all the excitement about winter clothes shopping, I love doing the same for my home. I think we're familiar with the Danish word Hygge, and how they make their homes comfortable for winter. We Brits have been doing the same for...

Where we eat in Henley on Thames

We've (selflessly) done the research so you don't have to.. We run an Air BnB in our grounds and I’m often asked where to eat and shop in the local area so I thought I’d share my recommendations on here! We have lived in Henley on Thames (3 miles outside actually) for...

Neck it out!

Have you heard of Profhilo® yet?  “Ooo I wish I’d looked after me neck and spotted the perils below deck.” My sincerest apologies to the marvellous Pam Ayers for paraphrasing her popular poem! Although not unhappy with my face, I like the occasional subtle ‘tweak’ and...

My Favourite Shoes, Summer Edition

Hello Loverrr (Carrie Bradshaw’s reaction to a beautiful pair of shoes in an episode on Sex and the City) Although I am not THAT mad about shoes, I’m probably close. I claim it’s not my fault, I’m the daughter of a shoemaker and had my first bespoke pair at 8 years...

All About The Brows

My Microbading Experience I have fair eyebrows that sort of give up halfway across! I've been pencilling them in for years. I've had them tinted, waxed, threaded and had HD brows but was ready to try something more permanent.My daughter, who is a trained make up...

What I Wear On Holiday

South of France edition! I have to say that I find dressing for hot weather difficult. It depends on your destination really. The USA I find is generally very casual but the Cote D’Azur is definitely not! My problem is, I don’t like baggy clothes and I look awful too...

The Big Little Fashion Show

My review of a glamorous evening! On Wednesday evening, my sister Jane and I ventured over to Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire for The Big Little Fashion Show 2019. Although Hedsor is only 15 Miles from where I live, this was my first visit. Hedsor dates all the way...
