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………………. http://www.akonglondon.com/

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...

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...

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...

Femmes Dangereuses

I like to think of myself as a bit of a dangerous gal, skirting perilously close to the dark side (usually on the edge of a pavement after a few scoops on a night out on the tiles). I blame my hair, which is unruly, I don’t have a pension, hell I don’t even have a job at the moment, so its fair to say I might know what I’m talking about. However being dangerous (careless, or in my case not using a hairbrush much),is far more interesting than...

Post Its go all 21st century…..

I love POST ITs! In my opinion they are the best inventions ever, I particularly like the giant ones and the ones in pink and blue. I write all kinds of nonsense on them, they pop up all over the place, all dog eared, years later in jargon I always fail to understand but clearly meant at the time! I’ve found them in my bed, stuck to the back of coats and jumpers, attached to food stuffs in the fridge and in my knicker drawer (don’t ask) to name...
