I always think that the TV show Dancing on Ice is rather over ambitious. For me, a show called Walking on Ice would provide adequate danger, moving narratives of overcoming personal adversity and mild peril.
Celebrities would be forced to do simple tasks like walking to shops – only with the pavements replaced by sheet ice. The skill would lie in the right choice of footwear.

The cold winter mornings are making it harder and harder to drag ourselves into work. With little to look forward to in bleak January except the next credit card bill, perhaps now is the best time to smarten up your work wardrobe with accessories that will make it a treat to leave your house in the morning.

In my book, Christmas dressing isn’t just about glittery party frocks that never quite fit or clumpy false lashes – December ‘tis the month to don comfortable, novelty clothes that can be thrown on and lounged in - ideally on the sofa, post-festive dinner, when the only right thing to do is snooze.

I don't know about you guys, but as soon as December rolls around I feel an overwhelming urge for all that glitters.
Now I'm 35, so it's been a few years since it's been socially/professionally acceptable for me to lay on the sparkles but for some reason, it seems to be commonly understood that the usual make up rules do not apply in December.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, as they say. And it can also be the most glamorous, depending on if you can be bothered to take off your onesie.

Loungewear is usually used as a code word for pajamas When I think of loungewear, a few visuals usually pop to mind.

The other being neon coloured tracksuits that are more familiar with the booths at McDonalds than an actual track.

While this time of year may mean joy, festivities and plenty of delicious food it's not very kind to the skin. (Or your hair, either, for that matter.)
There are plenty of products out there that claim to be "kind to skin" or say that they "traps in moisture" like your face is some sort of zip-lock bag, but you don't really know about a product unless you've tried it.

Rockalily Cuts only opened the doors to its East London salon earlier this year, but already has a loyal and ever-growing clientele. There are a number of reasons for this.
Firstly, the shop is owned and managed by the lovely Ree Ree Rockette, known to many for her fabulous range of Rockalily lipsticks and many more for founding the "Won...
