I both love and hate a four-day week; I’m resolved to spend the four days with loved ones but the workload is not letting up at all!

Fashion on Friday: Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy (wooahooahooh)

Florals? For Spring? It’s bright, it’s bold, and it’s seriously colourful; the Judy dress from Voodoo Vixen has fast become a wardrobe staple for these inbetween days.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that my Monday nights are consumed with an unbridled passion… for University Challenge.

Oh, I can answer some rounds beautifully but the science questions may as well be asked … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Bardot a-Go-Go

Because I have shared pictures of myself in this dress more than a few times this week, it seemed to me to be an obvious choice for today’s Fashion on Friday post. Whenever I know that I need to look the best that I can look, I go straight to Clare at The House of Foxy and ask what is … Read More
