So have my tired eyes and dark circles.

The Art Of Gift Giving

The Art Of Gift Giving

There is one kind of statement I don’t ever, ever like hearing.

It is the, they-are-so-difficult-to buy-for or they-have-everything comment. Nonsense.

Everybody, even those who appear to have everything love being spoilt and cherish a gift as much as the next person.
 

A gift doesn’t have to be expensive, overly clever or even original; a gift has to be heartfelt.
A gift can be quirky, practical or even sublimely impractical but it does require thought and that is where the generosity kicks in.

The ‘generous’ part of giving is the thinking time not the price ticket.

 

How do we turn gift giving into an art form?

Gillian Anderson has got it so right.

Mistress of the workplace attire, she embodies the mastery of being both feminine and practical in the most elegant of ways.

As ‘The Fall’ returns to our televisions, so does Stella Gibson’s impeccable style.
Gillian Anderson’s personal fashion is not all that far apart from her on-screen ego, even down to that scrumptious blow dry.

The Best Romantic Movies On Netflix: Part 1

“I wish I were her.”

That’s what my girls and I said when we started putting together a romantic movie list.

We intended on ten and we couldn’t agree so we have turned this into a three-part series. We all felt, with the holidays so close, feel good movies are what we need.

Adding Shine And Volume

Adding Shine And Volume


Adding shine and volume to hair is something most of us try on a daily basis.

It is much harder to pump up the volume if hair is fine and straggly.

The truth is a good hair day changes the way we feel and think about ourselves and gives us an extra dose of self-confidence. I know when my hair is looking its best I feel like a different person, especially now I have given up colour in favour of the greys.

As I age I feel more and more certain that beautiful, healthy and well styled hair is one of the best beauty secrets of all.

Alone Time: Making The Most Of It

Alone Time: Making The Most Of It

Spending time alone often has bad connotations.

I didn’t always find it easy to spend time alone.

It’s the ageing process that is causing the conundrum. There is no denying my face requires some different attention now.

I am happy with the ageing process, I do think I have come to terms with that, but I get nervous about make-up and the application of it.
