They see other HIPSTER 40-somethings doing it, donning their converse, battered and broken leather jackets, making roll-ups look cool and growing BEARDS. (The ultimate hipster handle if you need to get on the bandwagon) the BEARD. And then its the late in life tattoos Continue reading

I hope this makes someone talk to their friend, child, neighbour or collegue today, offer them a cup of tea, pay them a compliement, invite them someowhere or offer to help them with a small and menial task - inside they may be crying for help, you may be their wonderful new turning point. Be calm, smile, and let them feel safe to tell you what they are experiencing. Don't judge. Mental health can strike anyone at anytime, NO ONE is protected. Continue reading

This 'Product B' isn't yet available at all in the UK- its something I am sure that will EXPLODE onto our health scene as soon as the company are given the green light - safe to say it has passed the Australian health board (which is much more strict than ours) and is truly alive and turning over billions in the US market - THIS little nifty product WILL change our way of thinking on the little green island. Watch this space! and remember you saw it on a UK blog - by this blogger. Continue reading

I poo-pooed the media in my previous post, accussing them of brainwashing the majority to believe "we" will never achieve or look like "them". And by "them" I mean the nubile, tight, lean, ripped bodies clad in designer bikinis and mortgage inducing wardrobes, that grace every single tiny-weeny space of... Continue reading

Yes - you have to put in LOTS more effort, both with what you know about food and excercise, but its not information that is kept under lock and key and secreated to the chosen few who happen to have lots of money to pay for... Honestly! 5 things YOU can do today that will change your whole body in 6 weeks... Continue reading

Get your minds out of 50 shades of beige - I don't mean that sort of Leather and Collars... With most fashion fads, they are fairly predictable about a year ahead, or at least a couple of seasons, as most of them are based on a fairly formulaic repetition from the archives of bad fashion choices, revisited in a better light. Leather is clearly having a well over-due revival. Based, I think, mainly on this years weather being so bad. I know that sounds a bit daft, but many people think leather can pe a pricey fashion investment. Trousers, dresses, coats, blazers. Definitely not a faddy purchase. But this years british weather has been actually very consistent. Wet and Cold. All year. So leather is suddenly becoming a really good idea. Continue reading

When I do get dressed for purposes other than to just cover up, I actually LOVE fashion, but it has to be practical, affordable and look-the-business. We all know how slightly odd Elle Macphearson looks collecting the kids in leather trousers, a Balmain jacket and Louboutin platforms, but we let her off... I don't think many of us can get away with it. Continue reading
Just added some more to Fridays post on "Throwing a Christmas Party At Home". (Its for normal people - like you and I, not people that buy Pippa M's book on party-throwing). Also added some lovely shots taken from UK Vogue's street-chic style. More than a fair share of clangers... Continue reading

If you don't live in a boots advert, have a team of fabulous best friends that all have wonderful families with comfortable, stylish, cosy homes then join the club. I don't. I miss not being a working woman, because I miss the Christmas parties that come with clients, office relationships and the ability to pop out after work for "drinks" before going home.

But who can vouch for us? If we require references, who can us home-employed people call upon? Our friends? Tad unprofessional. And what would they say? "She makes a mean quiche, is great at photoshop, always has a clean kitchen floor and has taught her children to play the piano, can make a school play costume, diligent maths homework-checker and very organised when helping at the village fete"?! Its not going to fly! Continue reading

I haven't read it - not in full anyway. In fact, given that there are roughly four grammatical errors in the first opening paragraph, it put me off. I thought, "Well if you are going to write about the rules of fetish, the regimental ties of Domination and Submission in... Continue reading

"Diets" are bad for you. Yes. A good 'diet' is essential to being fit and healthy. The difference is one is part of your lifestyle, the other is something you read in Heat magazine. I Love food. I love GOOD food. And I don't really deny myself anything strictly. However I know that eating a whole chocolate bar would take me about 6KM on the treadmill to burn off. In the wake of a sleuth of nonesense - getting fit and getting thin has been blurred into one definition - DIET. This is wrong. And here are the differences. Continue reading

As children we are (and were) all encouraged to speak up, be confident, join in, work together, share, sing up! And some of us managed it more easily than others. Today this is even worse, with most classroom work being based on group participation, working collaboratively, sit in clusters. In fact very little primary school aged teaching now is geared towards solitary work, autonomous thinking and self-engaed thinking. This concerns me very much; as an Introvert. Continue reading

These bags are so subtle they practically SCREAM I'm AWESOME! I know that sounds a bit much from a handbag, but you'll have to take my word for it, given their almost impossibility to find in any great range or quantity. Therefore this makes them IDEAL to become the next IT-bags. Continue reading

The focus needs to just shift, completely and utterly away from weight, size and physical attributes to achievements, acomplishments and life goals. Instead of all the magazines having "Spring Diet" splashed across the front covers, we need to be teaching our young women how to sharpen their financial accumen, their business minds and entreprenaurial sides; feature articles on strong successful women, those that have helped, saved or created legacies, battled the sexism race and won, achieved greatness in the boardrooms and the kitchens.... NOT on the scales! Continue reading

Its been quite a considerable time since my last post on this blog - but, I hasten to explain, have been writing elsewhere on alternative topics and sites and some of my own personal work; So - you may ask - what the devil have you been writing and where... Continue reading

This is ACTUALLY called a tally-ho chair. Probably part of the reason why I love it. Its a piece of erotic furniture, and probably encapsulates my darker sexual side quite expertly... I love eroticism. I like erotic art and photography a great deal, I believe we should always seek ways to thrill ourselves, even if its just a picture on a wall that gives us a cheeky thought for a few seconds. Excellent! Continue reading
