Valentine's Gift Guide - For Him

on Thursday, 02 February 2012. Posted in Gift Guides, Lifestyle, Beauty, Fashion

Continuing on from my Valentine’s Gift Guide for Her, here are my selections for the ultimate Valentine’s Gifts for Him. Not what you’d necessarily call romantic, but hey, when did boys desire romance anyway?! It’s my belief that men in general would be far happier with a non-romantic yet practical gift, such as an iPad, whisky or Senna on DVD. Which, by the way, I’ve watched and very much enjoyed. So don’t worry about choosing it as a possible gift for fear of being made to watch it, you don’t have to be an F1 fan to appreciate it.

Valentine's Gift Guide - For Her

on Tuesday, 31 January 2012. Posted in Gift Guides, Lifestyle, Beauty, Fashion

Now as a married woman I know I’m not supposed to say this, but I simply cannot stand excessive soppiness on Valentine’s Day.

That doesn't mean I don’t want to celebrate being married to my lovely husband, but I don’t need to do that with choruses of overflowing love and devotion. It’s simply not me. So as I’m not very talented when it comes to slushy creative writing, I make it all about the gift. My most successful Valentine gift proved to be a new pair of football boots for my husband. Nothing romantic, but he was delighted nonetheless. But this year I’m totally and utterly stumped.

To that end and to help out others in the same predicament I’ve put together my selection of top gifts for both boys and girls. My first collection is for the girls, so if you struggle to say the right words, rest easy and let her new Anya Hindmarch bag do all the talking.

London Fashion Week Haul

on Monday, 26 September 2011. Posted in Events and Fashion Week, TV, Shopping

I wasn't planning on doing much shopping whilst at London Fashion Week, but since the opportunity presented itself it would have be rude not to!

Most of the stuff I bought, I got on Saturday after we'd been to The Look Show. We were given some great discounts for the stores in Westfield Stratford Ciry, so that proved to be all the encouragement we needed.

Most of the items that I bought are available online here:
