Oh many happy hours of mine were spent shooting the breeze with my new found friends and many beautiful pieces were bought that are still firm favourites and much admired. Then along came the evil bankers and stupid people who caused the...

Culture and Cameo

I have always been a fan of Eclectic Eccentricity’s unusual and quirky vintagey type jewellery pieces. I especially love cameos so their collaboration with the National Gallery ticks all my boxes. I love this double sided cameo available from the National Gallery shop www.nationalgallery.co.uk

Ma pied mon Dieu

I became obsessed with simple and chic Jesus sandals last year partly out of necessity (after years of hobbling aroung in stilettos I have ruined my hips!) and partly because I think they make your feet look lovely particularly with some lovely coral nail polish Rimmel Coral Romance being my favourite at the moment. Now, there are lots and lots of variations on the market most with fancy and over the top embellishments and they are lovely, but my all time favourites are these handmade sandals from the legendery...

How not to do a Beatrice

I love hats, well something needs to contain this crazy brain of mine and I love summer hats the most of all. Now I am no fan of meringue creations (EXCEPTION being Princess Bea’s which was so awful it was great) but I do love a bit of nostalgia and I love Panama hats, for me they evoke 50′s faded glamour such as Katherine Hepburn wondering around the middle of Africa with Humphrey Bogart in the African Queen or Mia Farrow silly, fickle and drunk as a skunk Daily...

Whats there not to like. Well all this and more is happening on the 4th of July at the Holiday Inn – Cheshire Oaks in Ellesmere Port. So if you...

Hello world……A star is born…….

Tah dah Gosh this is exciting my very first post on my new blog AccessAccessories. This was born out of demand to be honest from my other fashion blog Rubenisstas.org where I write about fashion for the curvy ladies and fashion accessories played a major part in all that so I decided to separate the two and thanks to the patience and generosity of a certain web designer Dave, here I am. I love fashion accessories and believe they are powerful tools not only to make our outfit and...
