Hello from the grave.... Well not the grave exactly but as you read this I am on holiday, probably drinking tea and eating cakes. So let my last post for 2 weeks be an epic moan. Well not a moan,... Continue reading

Obviously I totally love this coat! My biker jacket has had 3 outings since the shit weather returned so I'm happy. And funnily enough, I bought a fur coat from ASOS only yesterday. Not as pretty as this one though, this one is awesome. Might investigate it when I'm in Manchester

Whistles are on the end of lots of love from The Kingdom this weather. Queen Michelle has been especially delighted with it and it eagerly waiting on the weather to go back to a more normal Glasgow summer pattern ie... Continue reading

Let me begin by saying that this is my second last post until August 18th, as Prince B and I head off to Aberdeen, Manchester, York and Wales for some much needed holidays. I will of course be Instagramming where... Continue reading

Nothing is more important than your first cup of tea or coffee of the day. It sets you up for the coming day and all the adventures or dramas ahead. But to be honest I'm not sure what kind of... Continue reading

No it really does change. As you said, it's subtle, but it's definitely there. Mine is almost more frizzy than it used to be? I don't know, I can't explain it but it's something!

Thanks Kirsty and you are so right Sharareh - giant knitting always looks super snuggly and cozy. Lucky you Dust! Dutch design is the best... Queen Marie x
We would all have had to hide in a hole for a year if that bob had happened. Phew!!! I can feel Prince B's relief from here. Your hair is so far removed from 'old lady hair', I don't have the words although to be fair, the older you get the texture of your hair does seem to alter. It's only slight but it is a change, it never feels quite as healthy and vigorous but that might just be mine! Queen Marie

Summer is wonderful but it's a constant battle between not wanting to overheat and not wanting to bare any skin. Shorts and short skirts with bare legs are an absolute no-no for me, but jeans have equally been off the... Continue reading

This is the 'Urchin' pouf. A handknitted stool by Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma that is made on knitting kneedles the size of broomsticks! That's what I call extreme knitting... Christien Meindertsma graduated from the Eindhoven Design Academy in 2003. Through... Continue reading

In the last couple of days, between the heat and the atmosphere, Glasgow feels more like Barcelona than the wet and rainy dear green place we are used to! If you are thinking about heading into Glasgow to soak it... Continue reading

The weather here has been insane. It's actually proper sunshine! The Commonwealth tourists are certainly experiencing Glasgow better than it's ever been. Of course, the second the games are over it'll be back to the usual for us Glaswegians -... Continue reading

My days of wearing crazy high shoes may be over, but that doesn't mean I can't admire them from afar. As I attempt to sell off all my heels to make room for flatter shoes, my feet breathe a sigh... Continue reading

Sansha do a pair, or at least they used to. I was curious about them for ages but couldn't find any, so when I saw Grishko do custom orders for canvas shoes, I ordered immediately. I shall report back of course when they arrive.

It's no secret that Queen Michelle and I have less that no interest in sports but given the fact that we live in Glasgow, we couldn't fail to mention the Commonwealth Games at least once... After years of preparation the... Continue reading

My hair is driving me NUTS! Was there was talk on Saturday of cutting it all off again - don't panic, Prince B basically said he'd leave me if I cut my hair off because of the moaning I'd do afterwards! Yes decided yesterday to go to Wales top see castles! I'm so excited xx

Loving the baseball top. Loving your hair even more. It looks in amazing condition! Glad you said that about All Saints - I thought it was just me that was finding it all a bit blah these days. It's a shift dress snorefest. Queen Marie ps - want to hear more about the Wales trip. Will give you a wee call Tuesday x

I just hate looking down and seeing cleavage, not to mention the fact I find it horribly uncomfortable. With little boobs, I could wear any bra and none would give me cleavage, but now every bra gives me cleavage. I do agree that we are constantly bombarded with the message that big boobs are best. I have never wanted big boobs in my whole life.

So, my style slump rumbles on but at least now it's black and white, instead of just black. In a week where I tried denim overalls, which bestowed upon me the look of a pregnant hillbilly, followed by white jeans,... Continue reading

So YSL? Let's just say the 'L' is not for likeable... Let me start by saying this was not an easy film to watch in any sense of the word! On itunes the film, which is in french is sold... Continue reading

If it's the weekend and you're talking breakfast, let's be honest, with me it's more likely to be a late lunch! But breakfast means something else entirely to Antonio Romano and Francesco Alagna. In 2010 they created ' Come for... Continue reading

Are you asking me if they are horrid?? It's an odd question. Obviously I don't since I wrote about them. Or are we just putting questions marks after our sentences? I'm confused?

I do have a cheek to moan. Whilst I do utterly detest having boobs bigger than I've ever had in my whole life, I do have it easy as they are still relatively small!

Underwear is always on my mind. It's the bane of my middle-aged life. Once upon time I had neat, little boobs that could fit into the bras in my lingerie drawer, which is filled to the brim with beautiful underwear... Continue reading

I didn't ever think I'd be able to do the splits at this age, but I got there after stretching everyday at home. I've built up a lot of muscle (under the soft layer of fat of course!), weirdly on my back mostly. I do wish that hadn't happened as it makes clothing fit really weirdly. It's been on my mind to try and film me dancing but it takes more confidence than I have currently to share that. But I'll do it, I just need to grit my teeth and not be mortified!
