Objects of lust: seriously beautiful notebooks from Go Stationery

Pin It

5PN406G-Large-polka-Magenta_largeAs well as being fans of Gail’s cinnamon buns, French chic and Scandi interiors, Natasha and I also share a love of beautiful stationery. Throw us a gorgeous notebook and we’ll be yours forever. Yup, it takes that much. Whilst we both love the treasure trove that is Liberty’s stationery department, there’s also a little place in my heart for a branch of Waterstone’s on Chiswick High Road, which seems to be staffed by people who share our love for beautiful covers and amazing stationery. And, it was in there that I discovered my latest lust-after brand… [Read more...]

1a90f8f198ceb41c3c3b7851eada4110I had a rather excellent Style File for you today, but the combination of a virus (thanks to my children), the day job and a shortage of images means I have defaulted to my current summer obsession: a white dress.

I’m not generally one to splash the cash when it comes to children’s clothes, but for special occasions I will spend a bit more. One brand definitely worth spending money on is Cashmirino, a very chic children’s clothing company founded by Venezuelan-born banker-turned-designer Maria Busquets. From delicious cashmere to the prettiest prints, it’s a real treasure trove of beautifully-made children’s clothes…

Would you have a boob job?

Pin It

70495f2e31b849c1307786b80c1bd87cWhat do you think about boob jobs? Unnecessary, unfeminist and not for a woman like you? Or, do you secretly (or not-so-secretly) hanker after one?

Whilst I know people who’ve dabbled with botox and a couple who’ve admitted to nose jobs, I didn’t think I knew anyone who’d done anything more. Why did she have it done? Will it open the floodgates to having more procedures? What does her husband think? And most importantly, was it worth it? If you’ve ever wondered what type of woman actually has a boob job, then read on, you might be surprised…
