My Stationary Fix

I can’t believe its the end of January 13 already. This month has kinda dragged but kinda flown for me, an odd one but quite a good month all in all. However, that’s not what I’m here to talk about on this fine Thursday eve. I have something to get off my chest. I heart…

Dresses: Dressing to suit your shape

This year I made a decision to only buy when I really want something and try and shop for my figure and what suits, rather than what I think looks good on the rail. I have discovered lately I just love dresses with sleeves and I think they’re super flattering and great for day and…

My Dream Writer’s Space

When it comes to blog content, my inspiration for posts can never be pinned down to one ‘thing’. Articles I read in magazines, the newspaper, the Metro on the bus, news articles I catch on the 6 0’clock news. Conversations with friends, rediculous Facebook status updates, tweets that make me think. Having WordPress on my Blackberry…

Blogger Cliche: Snow

Well, 7 days later and the snow continues. With a second snowfall yesterday evening and a white coating covering everything in sight, and yet a lovely sunny day I thought I would take the opportunity to share a couple of snaps I took on my way home last night and then earlier this morning.

Spiedi: Reality Bites

Heidi and Spencer, Spiedi, The Pratts. Since The Hils began as a Leguna Beach spin-off show on MTv in 2003, Heida Montag and Spencer Pratt have rarely left our screens, with her down-right ridonkulous antics taking centre stage. The star of the show was of course, LC, Lauren Conrad for non-Hills fans, and her fall-out…

Shop Dixi: Hello newbies

Last week I did a post here on jewellery and more importantly, my love for rings and with all the snow on the ground, I don’t know about you but I’m just yearning for Spring to hurry up! I want to be able to wear ballet flats, fitted jackets and minus a million layers, oh and…

Coats for every occasion

I  just don’t know about you but I just can’t believe how cold it has been recently  and with the entire country enjoying the snow, you just know at this time of year, the only accessory you’ve got to rely on is a fantastic coat.  Whether you’ve got curves to kill for or a gorgeous…

Emma Stone covers W Magazine

Emma Stone. She’s Hollywood’s latest starlet and she is a girls’ girl. Funny, self-depriciating, dare I say, normal, we have grown to love her over the past few years as she’s climbed the career ladder and become a serious contender in the midst of many Hollywood actresses. Making us laugh in Superbad, making us want to…

Writing online copy: Hints and Tips

As you all know from my tagline I earn my crust by working as an Online Copywriter for a British retailer as part of the E-Commerce department and I gained my degree in Magazine Journalism in 2010. I love my job and talking fashion and home everyday, well what’s not to love, but sometimes you…

Family Recipes Made Easy

This past week has been such a write-off for me. A dreadful cold has taken over my life these past 4 days and resulted in a sick day on Friday and a weekend in recovery. Saturday was spent with my bestie and her baby which was perfect and a couple of glasses of white and a 3 course…

If you like it put a ring on it….

In the past couple of years my love of jewellery has really blossomed. I wear my trusty charm necklace everyday as I feel it makes me ‘me’. It doen’t hold much monetary value, but dear sentimental value instead.  I was given it on my 21st birthday by my bestie with a simple silver and gold heart and…

Capsule Wardrobes: Yay or Nay

I’ll be the first to admit I have a serious penchant for shopping. Pretty dresses, everyday tees, skirts, it’s just oh so easy to pick up yet another grey marl t-shirt when I am making a once-over trip to New Look but as I get older I am constantly trying to re-evaluate my style and…
