Spring shopping list

Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil Rose Lemonade text

Guess who’s back, back again? Mouse’s back, tell your…..yeah, ok, sorry. Definitely not cool enough to pull that intro off. It’s been quiet around here for the last couple of weeks – starting a new job is always hectic, especially when you’re in a new city, and I have to admit that most of my […]

February fashion and beauty wish list

Feb fashion & beauty wish list

I don’t know about anyone else but January has felt like a seriously long month.

Spring Scarves

I always think that Spring is a tricky season to dress for, as it swings from bright sunshine and glorious warmth to pelting rain and window-rattling winds that make you really regret leaving your coat at home. My Spring essential, in addition to an umbrella and a determination to find trudging through puddles in ballet […]
