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! www.swarovski.co.uk Ruby EDITOR...

Dangerous Women ………champagne, rebounding to teeth

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. www.anangelatmytable.co.uk

Lets get dressed for baking.

Ali Miller I mentioned previously that I made my annual trip to the open day Made in Clerkenwell at Craft Central last week primarily to visit Katherine Elizabeth. I came across a wonderful ceramics deisgner called Abi Miller who designs and makes gorgeous and quirky tea sets, plates, aprons and tea towels. Now I have taken to cooking and baking in a big way lately largely due to the fact I am ‘between jobs’ a fancy word for unemployed and in order to look the part of the professional...

Its all on the head…Katherine Elizabeth Hats…..

I made my annual pilgrimage to Made in Clerkenwell Christmas open day at Craft Central in St John’s Square London. I was fairly targeted in my quest but got sidetracked by the wonderful ceramics by Ali Miller. I then climbed the very steep stairs to the 5th floor to my favourite milliner Katherine Elizabeth and bought two wonderful felt hats, one in caramel and the other in cream for a very reasonable £35 each. I also took some pics of the lovely Katherine at work. www.katherineelizabethhats.com

GUESS what!

Guess I popped into the Guess open event this weekend and spurned on by rumours of cold weather I came across this gorgeous gloves which must be purchased. With the hands covered I then got to thinking I will need something to put in the hands and saw this lovely Covent Garden tote bag in leopard print…….and GUESS what…………it has to be purchased too……… Sticking to the hand theme, I even got my nails done free at the event in a beautiful burgandy colour, so my hands are lovely...

Lets all go buy milk…….

Lulu Guinness If like me you have always coveted Lulu Guinness’s red lips bags but cannot afford the price tag. Now you can…..in the shape of her snappy new shopping tote which comes in at a great £35 price tag. You can fold it up into the red lip shape to fool all your friends and enemies into thinking you have bought the real thing before unfurling it to put the groceries in. Never has going to the shops for toilet roll and milk looked so stylish. Ideal Christmas...

Recession – what recession

I came across what has got to be the most expensive candle I have ever seen or been up close to. I’ll wager not even the Vatican in its hey day stretched that far. Its lovely, its probably even worth the money if you have any, which I don’t! So if you are an oligarch or even an oligarch’s girlfriend, wife, consort, friend even you can put it on your Christmas list. I am reliably informed they are available at Harrods & Harvey Nicholls (would expect nothing less)! The...
