On Monday I spent the day with lucky Rachel Venn, Age 18 from Devon who won Freya’s fabulous prize, as seen in GLAMOUR magazine’s January Issue. Rachel had entered Freya’s competition on the website, where the 2 minutes she took to enter the competition paid off big time when it won her flights to and from Manchester, an amazing stay at a very swanky suite at The Hilton in Manchester, where she was taxi’d to The Trafford Centre Shopping Mall (wearing her new Freya underwear set – also part of the prize) with £500 spends burning a hole in a pocket! Phew. Talk about every woman’s dream prize! More
Although the weather is still stuck on winter, the fashion world are moving on to spring (hooray!). I thought I’d give all you lovely Freya fans a taste of spring’s hottest trends as this is mainly what I am working on at the moment for my clients at My Style Companion who are looking to update their wardrobe for the season ahead.

I was chuffed to be asked to be involved in the launch of this beautiful new shop which stocks Victoria Beckham handbags, Charlotte Olympia shoes (my favourite at the moment!), Jonathon Saunders, Osman and Emilio de la Morena who even designed a special dress in homage to the owner of the store which one of my friends snapped up quicker than you could say ‘limited edition’.

Years and years ago, my older sister used to work in the lingerie department at a large luxury department store in Manchester, where every year in December ( usually a couple of days before Christmas, if not Christmas Eve itself), she would be inundated with panic-stricken gents who had planned to pick their wife the perfect lingerie set for Christmas, but had simply run out of time (or inspiration!)
As one guy reached for the stereotypical red, lacy micro lingerie set, my sister went over to give the guy a hand as every year in January, the red, lacy sets would be returned by the wives and exchanged for something pretty and sexy but practical – in essence, something both her AND her man could enjoy More
