How To Avoid Festive Underwear Disasters

Underwear and Christmas can be a recipe for disaster. I’m not just talking about cringe worthy Saucy Santa negligees from misguided lovers. Oh no. Some families have quaint traditions around Christmas pyjamas and pants. Anyone who has ever unwrapped a heavily sequined G-string as a gift from their mother will know what I’m talking about.

Max Factor and the Beauty of Unrealism

Gwyneth’s got my goat. That’s not to say she – with her multi-hyphenated, branded lifestyle - doesn’t usually get on my nerves, but this last week, she’s irked me more than ever. The source of my irritation? An advert she stars in for Max Factor, which gas been released just in time for gifting and party season.

Fashion & Function: The Knomo Lola Bag

I work for myself, which means that instead of having an office or one central desk, I work from multiple locations. It also means that I have a laptop instead of a desktop, an iPad instead of a Filofax, an iPhone in my hands at all times, and a moleskin for serious brainstorming. Essentially, I carry my desk around with me in a bag. This can prove to be incredibly stressful. (If you've done it, you know!)

Autumnal Arm Candy: Lancelot Knight's Barrel Bag

The Lancelot Knight Leather goods factory is based Northumberland, England. They use only the finest materials and expert skills, to make sure that each leather product is of the best quality, each piece made by hand. One of my favourite things about the factory is that it’s family-run business that has been open since 1902 and currently has four generations of the family involved at every stage of the pro...

Saint Bustier: Clothing for Busty Ladies

Any lady with a bra size past a DD cup knows that trying to find a shirt, dress, cardigan or coat that will button up properly is damn near impossible.  Clothing on the high street is simply not made for women of unreasonable breast size. You can be a size 12 with a set of G cups, but good luck finding a dress for your Christmas party. Even the most casual of outfits can suddenly be turned into some sort of wayward peep show, with any movement freeing the clasp of ...

The Half-Arsed Girl's Guide to Vintage

There is a wonderful magazine called Vintage Life. It is full of glamorous ladies with perfectly rolled hair and rouged lips, they eat dainty vintage sandwiches off dainty little vintage china plates, they drive vintage cars and have vintage partners who grow period facial hair and wear waistcoats and braces.

Lipsticks for 21st Century Vamps

A deep and dark lipstick shade is an essential for any make-up collection. A slick of almost-black, rich red or deep purple provides the perfect finishing touch to this autumn’s opulent and baroque inspired trends. They also work well with basic black and are surprisingly easy to pull off - it isn't so much about needing confidence to wear them, rather embracing the confidence that these colours come imbued with.

Style Confessions of a Teenage Goth Girl

Having watched The Craft far too many times, teenage me decided that she was going to be a goth. It proved very difficult, mainly because my school uniform was navy blue. Attempts at satanic chic always failed to pack quite the ungodly punch  - even if I swapped the navy tights for black ones. I spent weekends with my face caked in Spectacular’s white face powder and my eyes rimmed with black glitter pencil. Come Sunday evening my chipped black nail polish wa...

Give Yourself a 'Good Hour' at the Lush SPA

The thought of a spa day has never really appealed to me. I don't want to be wrapped in seaweed, covered in mud, or slathered in expensive, strange creams and serums that I'll no doubt be pressured into buying afterwards. And I most certainly do not want any sort of sea creature eating dead skin off my feet.
