What Is Your Can’t Live Without?

What Is Your Can’t Live Without?

There is one piece in my wardrobe I can’t live without.

Can you guess?


Mine is the blazer.

The long one, the shorter one, the one with buttons, the one without; the blazer is my go-to for just about every occasion and event.

Especially when I am travelling.  

The blazer solves those decisions I don’t wish to spend making and whether I wear one over jeans, pants or a fuller skirt, I am happy.


Do you know that feeling when you put on a piece and it feels “Goldilocks” right?

Concealer: How To Wear It 3 Ways

Concealer: How To Wear It 3 Ways

There is a trick with concealer and I have figured it out.

It can be used 3 ways and can make quite the difference.


I forgot my favourite bb cream and foundation on a trip recently and didn’t have time or the inclination to re-buy my favourites.

Somewhere in my distant memory a vague spark flickered and I remembered, if used properly, a good concealer can double or triple not only as a great cover up but also for a base and contouring.


Concealer is one of those products I use mostly under tired eyes and not for much else.

“I think one does feel more liberated and independent when one gets older.

More honest and open with yourself and others. But you still have insecurities—they’re different, but they don’t totally go away. But you reach a point and say ‘That’s OK.’ In the end, nobody’s perfect, and we’re all doing the best we can.” – Linda Rodin, Into The Gloss

Five Tricks: Five Years Younger

ARE THERE FIVE EASY TRICKS TO LOOKING FIVE YEARS YOUNGER?

I am not sure if these ideas really make me look any younger but they sure do make me feel a lot better.

There are certain “grooming” (for want of better word) jobs that I need to have done regularly otherwise I don’t feel well with the world.

Simple beauty, hair and make-up rituals that make all the difference to how I look and present myself.

They are not complicated or revolutionary but they inspire confidence.

“Come Quickly I am Tasting The Stars”… Dom Perignon

  If there is one universal cocktail or drink that spells Christmas for me… it must be Champagne… or sparkling wine… depending on the provenance… I have always associated Christmas with champagne… it’s like the turkey with the stuffing or the plum pudding and the brandy… One can’t live without the other… they go hand
