Book Review | Home Made Simple

When online book discounter The Works asked me if I’d like to review a book of my choice I jumped at the chance to.  I love The Works and pop in to one of their stores for a book haul every now and then.  Now they’re online it’s even more difficult to stay away from the mountains of bargain books! I always enjoy checking out the Craft section, as I do love a bit of home

Bridal Lingerie Review | Masquerade Serenity

Late Spring with it’s blooms in full blossom and new life awakening means an abundance of weddings. Even singer Rachel Fabri from my favourite classical cross-over group, All Angels, married this weekend, looking every inch the ethereal goddess.  Spring really is the most beautiful time to get married! Luxury and decadence goes hand in hand with the perfect wedding ideal, and is as traditional as wearing virginal white.  Whilst these days weddings are less restrictive with

Beauty Products That Work | My New Favourites

I wanted to show you some of the products I’m using right now that I’m really impressed with (and it takes a lot to impress me!)  So, here’s my awesome list of current beauty, skincare and hair care products of the moment: Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover I actually won this recently from Bourjois and I’m glad I did because I’d been too skeptical to buy it.  It is such a breeze to use.  Inside the

Dressing Curves Successfully | Made in Preston

Clothes shopping is never a walk in the park.  As much as I’m fanatical for a bit of retail therapy (read: marathon shopaholic) shopping for new clothes generally never ends well. An amazing dress on the hanger doesn’t translate to anything other than an amazing dress on a hanger.  It doesn’t tell you how it’ll fit, who it’ll suit, instead it leads you on, whispering: “Buy me!  You love me!” and then mocks you in the fitting

Bridal Lingerie Review | Charnos Belle

Your wedding is (with all intents) a once in a lifetime experience and The Dress is high up on the perfection agenda. With all thoughts on the big day gown it’s easy to completely bypass what you’ll wear underneath the dress, and this is hugely dependent on what style of dress or other outfit you decide to wear.  It’s worth considering whether you’ll need a balcony, plunge or strapless bra, as well as your taste

Summer Sleepover | Pretty Polly Nightwear

Now that the weather is truly warming up, I’ve begun to think about what to wear differently for bed.  Whilst I usually snuggle down in long sleeved tops,t shirts and loose pyjama bottoms, humid evenings find me longing for something a  little less wrapped up. Pretty Polly, a name more associated with hosiery and socks, recently launched into lingerie and sleepwear.  The youthful and feminine new ranges come in easy to mix and match collections reflecting

I Failed My Rabbit & You’re Making The Same Mistake

  Bobby.  She was my first bunny love!  If it wasn’t for a friend’s (very naughty) secret purchase of a tiny fluff ball the day before one Christmas Eve I would never have enjoyed the company of rabbits to this day.  Having my life dedicated to guinea pigs, I was stumped as to how to care for a rabbit.  I was less than impressed with my friend, but I couldn’t help falling in love.  Through Bobby
