Red carpet handbags

These beautiful handbags from Maisha popped onto my radar recently. Perfect for putting on the glitz….


An invite to Paris it pains me to turn down

I got invited by the lovely Nicole Akong creater and owner of the amazing jewellery brand Akong to Akong’s AW12 collection in Paris next week. Nicole has also been chosen by Swarovski to be one of their exclusive ateliers for A/W 12 which is truly fantastic and a great boost and accolade for Akong. Alas I am off to gay Paree at the beginning of April so cannot justify(or afford) two trips. However, I love Akong and cannot wait to see her new collection. Here are some teasers……………….


Lolli lolli Lollipops Oh La La…..the french are coming

Lottie and I went along to Lollipops preview in Shoreditch East London recently for a nose around. I came across this Parision fashion and accessories brand years ago on holiday to Marbella. Then I bought a beautiful candy pink handbag (very now) and I fought over the last pair of silver mules with my friend Irene and due to some really dirty tricks she risked over 30 years of friendship when she surreptitiously bought the mules from under my very put out nose! Lollipops in Marbella closed down, I...


A little bag of something

BURBERRY SS12 Just a taster….. Aren’t these clutch bags from Burberry gorgeous Ruby  


Happy New Year – 2012 the year when it all goes great!

Always remember in the immortal words of Mme Lily Bollinger ………………………….   Champagne… ‘I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty.’ Looking forward to entertaining you again in 2012….its going to be great……I’ll drink to that!


Where I realise JUST how lucky I am……..

I am a very lucky person. Look what my friend Veronique sent me for Christmas! A fantastic medieval cross on Biba chain (featured on the front of this post) and medieval bangles (below) from Mirabelle jewellery! I feel like Maid Marion but far more stylish, now where is that Robin Hood hiding! For those of you not in the know, I also write Mirabelle’s blog for the Mirabelle Jewellery website. Mirabelle is a fantastic ethical jewellery website, much loved by the fashion pack and those in the know. Mirabelle...


I’ve been a very bad girl………

Bouyed up by a very boozy Christmas lunch yesterday I ended up in the Swarovski shop on the Brompton Road. I ended up falling inlove with this Purple Red ring. Its very rock chick and reminds me of Stephen Webster’s jewellery but at a fraction of the price. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I also (it was the wine you understand) bought this black Nirvana ring (BELOW) that I had my eye on for years. Am a very happy chick, albeit a hungover and poorer one! Ruby EDITOR...


Dangerous Women ………champagne, rebounding to teeth

I told you a few weeks ago that I was invited to the launch of the book Dangerous Women at Lauren Shanley’s workshop last week. Well friends the event was great, the book even better and the 3 authors are great. Here are some piccies of the event now all you have to do its put Dangerous Women on your Christmas stocking list. Here are some of my (many)favourite passages from the book to whet your appetite. Champagne I drink it when I’m happy And when I am sad...


Hacked off for being Hacked

Hi there my lovelies Just thought I would let you know that I (Ruby) have had to suspend my Twitter account for a while as I got hacked and some fucker/loser who probably lives somewhere dire in some ex Soviet style republic eating grey radioactive food with nothing better to do, who thought it a great idea to hack into my Twitter account sent vile emails on my behalf to my followers and friends. I hope not only his/her hand and remaining eye fall out but ………………………(leave that part...


A little something for the girls who have nothing

An Angel at my Table I love mooching around in a fantasy of froth and frenchness this website ‘An Angel at my Table’. It sells a random selection of homewares, jewellery and knick knacks and its just lovely. I love these bracelets as they remind me of old Parisien seamstresses toiling away producing perfect couture that none of us can afford to wear. So wear these instead.
