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.

my-wardrobe.com Christmas Event

on Sunday, 06 November 2011. Posted in Events and Fashion Week, TV

I was lucky enough to be invited to the my-wardrobe.com Christmas event at the beginning of November and I managed to do some filming so I could share it all with you.

There were some gorgeous items on display, not to mention the fabulous new Christmas wrapping paper designed by ALICE by Temperley for her and YMC for him.

I had a wonderful evening, sipping on Champagne, scoffing cupcakes and browsing through some of the fabulous clothes, bags, shoes and accessories that would make anyone's Christmas day complete.

A Little Bit of Charity is Good for the Soul

on Tuesday, 11 October 2011. Posted in Fashion, Wish List

Giving money to charity is not something I object to, far from it, I willingly hand over my £2 a month to Cancer Research and the NSPCC, something that I promised myself I would do as soon as I started work. But the recession has brought out the frugalness in all of us; we’re now much less willing to hand over our hard-earned cash without careful consideration. That’s not to say that we’re not prepared to support charities, but perhaps we’re looking for alternative ways to do it. Step in the designer brands that are offering us the chance to treat ourselves to a little luxury whilst supporting key charities and helping raise awareness.

In my last post I showcased my Aamaya by Priyanka ring that I bought back in May. I was initially tempted to buy a different ring as the one I wanted was sold out, but as it was supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer I decided to hold off and wait to see if any more became available. Happily more did become available and I was able to indulge my passion for statement rings and at the same time sleep well at night knowing that I was supporting a very important charity.

Aamaya by Priyanka

on Friday, 07 October 2011. Posted in Fashion, Wish List

I hold Grazia magazine and my-wardrobe.com culpable for my latest obsession. Back in May I was cheerfully flicking through a copy of Grazia when I spotted this ring in their weekly fashion chart:

Aamaya by Priyanka Breakthrough Breast Cancer Ring

Before I’d even found out who the designer was, I had made up my mind that I wanted one!

After I’d gathered my thoughts and actually read the text that accompanied the picture, I discovered it was from Aamaya by Priyanka and this particular design was their Breakthrough Breast Cancer ring. According to Grazia they were available from my-wardrobe.com, so I quickly grabbed my laptop to check if they were still in stock, and to my dismay, they were sold out…
