craving: true religion womens jeans

True Religion Brand Designer Jeans

I've loved the True Religion brand ever since going to a collective press day in London a couple of years ago. Their stand was perfectly formed in every way so I made a beeline for it, skipping the horderves and cocktails on offer to dive straight into the world of beautifully made designer jeans.

think again - july 28th 2014

I was recently pointed in the direction of this video and thought that it was too good not to share! In my opinion we don't talk about illness and disease enough, there isn't enough awareness or conversation and that's because it's so difficult to address which is perfectly understandable. But these sensitive issues need to be spoken about in order for people to be informed and for something to be done.

The best way to raise awareness about such things is to make a video and this video about World Hepatitis Day is spot on, it's informative, light hearted and a little bit funny. I'll admit I giggled aloud and that's one of the reasons why I thought that I'd share it on my blog. The video features a very talented hand puppeteer (seriously!) and and a song being sung by a guy called Richard Chees, known to be the loudest lounge singer in America. It's great!

I urge you to watch this and follow the instructions right at the end, talk to the hand and do what it tells you to do! I did. :)

My favourite bit is at about 1:20 - Lejo the puppeteer is brilliant.

what's in my holiday toiletrie bag?

13 July 2014


It's important for me to always be prepared which means that I can sometimes be a bit of an 'over-packer' so I thought that I would show you what I pack in my summer holiday toiletry bag so you can see that a little bit of (almost) everything, can go a long way. I have some little packing tips and talk about the things that you don't need as well as those you do. This is part of a little series I've been working on so if you'd like to see what I pack in my summer holiday makeup bag click here.

I haven't posted a haul in a little while, so I thought I'd share with you a collection of things that I've bought over the last couple of months that haven't yet been featured on the ol' blog. Apart from the nude wedges from Clarks.. those I just wanted to show you in more detail.

tigi colour goddess shampoo and conditioner

8 July 2014


I'm hardly a colour goddess as I stopped dyeing my hair a couple of years ago and although I often dream of my bright and light blonde locks and miss them terribly I probably won't be changing hair colour anytime soon (but never say never). Therefore I don't really need a colour boost or to protect my hair colour because it is natural but this stuff is amazing all the same.

yo! sushi school - i am a sushi master

3 July 2014


I was lucky enough to be invited along to my first ever blogger meet in Plymouth and it just happened to be a sushi masterclass at Yo! Sushi in drake circus. It was also king of a big deal as I hadn't tried sushi prior to this so I asked Sophie (of Crown and Glory Hair Accessories) to join me and some fab food bloggers on a sushi adventure.
