Gold fashion trend from Britt Nicole & Scarlet Johansson

Last week I saw this video of Grammy nominee Britt Nicole discussing her stage costumes for her tour and was pleased to hear that she is fully embracing princess-ness with a gold tutu skirt: “I do feel like I have to be comfortable on stage because I’m moving a lot, I’m dancing…so I have to have something […]

I’ve never used Pinterest before – is it any good?

In fact, I’m not even sure how it’s pronounced – is it ‘pin-ter-est’, ‘pin-trest’ or even ‘p-interest’. Not that this even matters considering that I’ve never used the site before or even looked at it. I don’t want to get left behind, and friends of mine can spend hours browsing through the site, but I […]

Fashion inspirations: The cute-factor with Little Mix

As this year’s X-Factor has begun, I’ve taken a look back at last year’s winners Little Mix to check out their fashion looks and to take influence from their cutesy-teen style. I especially like this style on the Little Mix girls – I’d call it the ‘pin-up-housewife’ look and its funked up with the plastic jewellery and […]

Show me how you Burlesque..!

I’ve had a fairly glitzy week this week when I’ve had my friend to stay; we’ve watched a few girly films including Chicago (which I’ve owned for at least a year and never watched it, can you believe it!), Mamma Mia and finally Burlesque. I really enjoyed the glamour of all of these films and the […]

  Kelly Brook and her glamourous gowns were spotted on almost every red carpet at the 65th Cannes Film Festival last week – but her most impressive outfit of late is certainly this frilly gown that she wore back in London at the 2012 Bafta TV Awards this week.

Tuesday Shoesday – Jazzy jellies for seaside paddling

Do you remember jelly shoes? As a child I used to wear to wear jelly shoes all summer long – they kept your feet cool, were so comfy (and kind of moulded themselves to your feet in the hot weather) and you could go paddling at the seaside or in a river without worry of […]

My little Maneki Neko obsession…

I don’t think it’s too much of an overstatement when I say I love these lucky cats! My love of all things kitsch has been well documented over the years (I think it started when I was 16 and began to choose my own decor!) and I’ve been admiring these tacky plastic cats in takeaway restaurants for ageees. Little […]

New mum Black Swan star Natalie Portman and mum-to-be Drew Barrymore both rocked up at the New York City Ballet Spring Gala at The Lincoln Centre this weekend.

Famous Tutus – What FHM’s Sexiest Female is wearing…

Despite being voted FHM’s sexiest woman of the year, this weekend Tulisa has been slammed for her awkward ‘dad-dancing’ performance on Britain’s Got Talent on the first live show this Sunday. Fair enough she did look a bit stumpy in her flat shoes, but was it really that bad?? Tulisa has been a trendsetter since she upped her fame […]

Famous Tutus – Designer look by Anne Valerie Hash

Simply team a pair of pleather leggings from River Island and a […]

I made this all by myself: Champagne cork cage mini-chair by my hubby!

Whenever my husband and I open a bottle of bubbly (which is unfortunately not often enough!), while I am cheerfully enjoying my drink, he is bending and folding and contorting. Not himself I hasten to add, but the wire of the cork cage – he is shaping it into a mini chair and I always […]

Most of my “Famous Tutus” post feature adults getting their princess-vibe on wearing tutus for fancy dress or as fashion items. But in truth, who are tutus really for? That’s right – the little ‘uns!

I spotted this Moschino outfit in a Glamour fashion shoot last month and couldn’t believe the price tag on this skirt – £1525! To be fair, it looks gorgeous and this look is such a hot combination of sensible and frivolous – a smart shirt tucked into a frilly petticoat combined with über-glam red heels. It’s […]

“The Tutu Project began in 2003 as a lark. I mean, really, think of it. Me photographing myself in a pink tutu, how crazy is that?” That’s how artist Bob Carey describes the origin of his series of topless self-portraits wearing frilly pink tulle. But during his photographic journey, the project took a more meaningful turn when his […]

Tuesday Shoesday – The Most Comfortable Shoes Ever??

It is just me, or does everyone think that bowling shoes are simply the most comfortable shoes they’ve ever worn? On more than one occasion I’ve seriously considered ditching the pumps that I arrived in and waltzing out of the bowling alley in my new super-comfy shoes – and I would have – if I hadn’t worn […]
