M&S: The Spend it Well Summer Edit

It can be tempting to keep your best clothes for, well, best. That flute sleeve beauty of a top? Can you really wear it on the school run, to work, around the house? Or that beautiful summery maxi dress, could you possibly wear it to the shops? We think yes. Life, is very much, for living, which also applies to your wardrobe. If you love something wear it and wear it and wear it, as what's the point in having something you adore just hanging forlornly in your wardrobe? With that in mind, we've both been busy checking out and trying on Marks & Spencer's new summer collection, which is very good this year and nicely ticking the sartorial boxes we love. Gorgeous flared midi skirts? YES! Tasselled jewellery and pom-pommed sandals? YES! Statement sleeves? YES SIRREEE! Here's what we've found that's available to buy in store and online now....…

Family camping UK: Cool Camping: Kids tells us where to go

If you'd told me ten years ago that I'd ever seriously consider going camping then I would have assumed you'd been knocking back the sauce. As a Travel Editor who reviewed 5-star hotels for a living, I was used to the luxuries in life, but OH how time changes. No longer paid to do such things, which are now firmly out of my reach, and with a gaggle of children underfoot, I've started to think that - actually, camping, or to be more accurate, glamping might be alright. An adventure even. And considering that we actually slept in a tipi on our wedding night, two or even three nights would be quite fun. So, when I heard that a new book was coming out Cool Camping: Kids, listing the best, most beautiful family-friendly sites in the UK, I asked the Editor, James Warner Smith to share his top 5 places for sleeping under canvas this summer...…

We want to live here: Emilie Jacob of Stella and the Stars’ Dubai home

I stumbled across Emilie Jacob's (@StellaandtheStars) gorgeous home on Instagram and it was love at first sight. At first, I lusted after her East London pad, but then, when she moved to Dubai a year ago with her husband Pete and 3-year-old daughter Stella, it was all about her new desert retreat. Her chic, contemporary style works just as well in rainy England as it does in sunny Dubai and there is plenty here to steal (I mean *inspire*). From a gorgeous gallery wall to a perfect pink desk area, this cool, lovely, creative French blogger is one brilliant interiors fiend.....…

Get set for summer: the Hush edit

Ok. So the sun isn't shining ALL the time, but summer (we promise) is on the way! And with that in mind, we're thinking about our summer wardrobes. Natasha is off on a well-deserved holiday soon, so she is particularly in the mood for summery dresses, gorgeous tops and brilliant shorts. And of course, the odd lightweight knit for when she's back home. And so, we've done a little edit of our favourite pieces from Hush's new collection. We love Hush - the cut and the style are fantastic, and this year it's looking really good....…

Our Stationery Addiction

The other day, when I was in & Other Stories, queuing to buy the dress which may or may not make me look like a milkmaid, but I love it either way, I noticed their gorgeous new-ish stationery range. How has this passed me by? How has my desk survived without it?…

Stop the search: This cream really works…

I first spotted this cream on Red magazine's Beauty Editor-at-Large Rosie Green's Instagram feed. For a beauty guru like Rosie to rave about a cream, it has to be good, so I was instantly intrigued. Good skin is priceless - nothing can make you look older/tireder/worse than a poor complexion, and equally, glowing skin can give you an almost ageless quality. Who needs expensive clothes if your face is in good shape? And this really lives up to the hype...…

Remember *that* top? Well, here’s *that* dress….

Sometimes a piece of clothing is just so right, that it sets Instagram on fire. *That* red peasant top by Next is a prime example. So if you loved (and quite probably have) the blue or red version, you are going to be extremely excited by the equally gorgeous dress version....…
