How to Keep Your Head (And Everything Else) Above Water

Once upon a time in a town not far from here, six young ladies decided to go on holiday together. Now these six young ladies had just taken their ‘A’ levels, were soon to leave school for good and to embark upon the next exciting stage of their lives. In those heady days of summer the girls shared everything – laughs, clothes, boyfriends. The sun always seemed to be shining and the six girls were ...

All Star Mr & Mrs Q&A

In case you hadn’t realised, men and woman are pretty different. Not only do we have different interests, thought processes and driving ability, but the two sexes go through different experiences when it comes to pregnancy. In our first ever joint post, the missus and I do a pregnancy related Q&A to give our different perspectives on what it’s been like growing our little love goblin.   ...

The Wonders of Wimbledon and Why It’s OK to Lose

I am rubbish at tennis, always have been, but I do love to watch it. Last year’s incredible final with Andy Murray’s long awaited win will forever be etched on my memory – I could hardly stand to watch and was in and out of the house, half sunbathing, half keeping check on the score. History was being made. Today it feels hard to believe we will see the like again for a very long time. I don’t kn...

Under the Counter and Above the Shop

There were two things that caught my attention in Tuesday night’s opening episode of the new three part documentary ‘Shopgirls’ shown on BBC2. Firstly, the description by London society hostess and journalist Lady Mary Jeune of the shopping experience in the 1800s as being “a solemn and dreary affair”. Secondly, that in 1851 there were 2.5 million unmarried self-supporting women in Great Britain. ...

Now is the Summer of Our Discounted Trends

The good news apparently is that sales of football shirts and sporting goods rose so much last month that the high street almost looked like it had a good month. If you’re not the sort of person who longs for wall to wall football on their television after a hard day at work, then this fact will be both bizarre and irrelevant to you.

Right Here’s Where You Start Paying… in Sweatshirts*

Last week I talked about leggings and cropped tops and the things to avoid in order to present the best version of yourself. This week, thanks to school friend Sophie and her ’80s themed birthday party, I’m having to think about those things again. Last week, Sophie very kindly came up with an argument for me investing in a cropped top this season – she was the only one – so I feel it’s only fair ...
