My Style Companion and Make Events

Recently I helped to organise the launch of a new luxury designer boutique in Alderley Edge called Rocca where it was my job to secure the VIP guest list for the evening and ensure that Rocca entered Alderley with a bang, as the owner was new to the area and wanted someone who knew fashion, and had contacts in the local community.

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’.  More

Christmas lingerie for wife

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

I’ve had something of a breakthrough, and wanted to share it with you. As one of Freya’s bloggers, I get to try lots of their bras, but so far I’m afraid I’ve probably been quite unadventurous, generally sticking to the sort of styles I’m used to. But the other day, the lovely folk at Freya popped a new bra in the post that I hadn’t requested; the Deco Honey Moulded Plunge Bra. More

Winter Comforts

I have a confession to make. I LOVE winter. As everyone else starts lamenting over the dark evenings and chilly temperatures, I secretly love snuggling up under a duvet on the sofa, digging out my thick tights and woolly hats and seeing my breath in the air. This may have something to do with having spent much of my childhood growing up in the Mediterranean where we had little in the way of seasons- it’s slightly colder in the winter but I definitely remember spending a number of Christmas days in jeans and a t-shirt. So proper cold weather is still something of a novelty for me- as is really warming, comfort food and drink. My list of Christmas presents for friends and family nearly always includes a cookbook, and this year is no exception. More
