Review: Nokia Lumia 925

For the last three weeks I have swapped my beloved iPhone for a very shiny Nokia Lumia 925, which I’ve had on loan from Nokia to try out. It’s been an interesting test, starting with incredible frustration over not being able to find anything or type simple words using the keyboard, to actually feeling a

Thinking About Autumn… Shoes!

Is it too early to think about autumn? It’ll (unfortunately) be here very soon – and I’ve already noticed the autumn/winter collections making their way onto the high street. When I think autumn I automatically think brown. Not a rich chocolate brown, but a brighter tan brown that matches the leaves as they start to

Shoes: Wedge Trainers

I have been looking at the range of wedge high top trainers around at the moment for ages (and ages) – they’ve been around for a good while now now – wondering if I should. I am torn. I think I like the way they look. I like that they would give me some additional

Dove Colour Radiance (Bzz Review)

I am a BzzAgent and this is a Bzz Review…  As someone who colours her hair, I invited to take part in a new Bzz campaign for Dove Colour Radiance Shampoo and Conditioner. I was sent a bottle of each to try at home along with some samples and vouchers to share with friends. I

Capture the Colour

I often say that I think in colour. It’s one of the ways I try and describe the way that I see things. I think it’s why I like taking photos – taking snaps of things I see helps me remember where I have been, what I’ve done and how I felt at the time.

Summer Legs from FatFace

I visit FatFace regularly. There’s one not far from where I work and I love their clothing – style and fit. At the moment it is full of gorgeous colours – dulled pinks and greens, blues and caramels. My wish list is ever expanding… There are two trouser styles that I’m really loving, both a

Brugo Mug – Tip and Sip

Find Me A Gift sent me a cool mug to try out.  The Brugo Mug is one of those insulated travel mugs you might fill with coffee before you leave and drink on your journey.  But apparently it’s more than that… First thing’s first, the instructions on this really made me chuckle.  I mean, they’ve

Year in Photos (6 Jul 11) – M&M's World, London

Walking to Leicester Square this morning on our way to find some breakfast we came across this place… it was all shiny and new and there were a few people hanging around outside.  It was M&M World and I’m not sure if it opened for the first time today but apparently it was the opening

Colour Catcher – Cheap Socks vs Plain White T

Washing… one of those chores that if you’re not concentrating 100% when you’re doing it, it can all go horribly wrong. Thankfully I have never mistakenly put a pink sock into a white wash, or a white t shirt into a dark wash.  So far anyway.  The problem, though, with splitting everything into washes with

Year in Photos (27 Apr 11)

Today a friend came to visit… And she brought me flowers – they’re colourful and gorgeous and really brighten up the room. Thanks Cathy x 27/04/11: Cheery colours

Year in Photos (24 Mar 11)

I need a dress for a wedding I’m going to in the summer… it’s a family wedding and it’s about time I had a new dress for such occasions.  I had a quick look in Monsoon and came across this colourful number – I like how happy it is!  Shame it’s £75. 24/03/11: Colourful

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I have fine blonde hair which needs washing daily.  In fact sometimes it even needs washing again before a night out.  It’s a right pain.  And as a result I’ve been an avid user of Batiste dry shampoo for a long time.  It’s great for refreshing my hair between washes – perfect when I get
