Sleeves on Steroids

Sleeves have gone bonkers this spring! Think a mix of The Jackson 5, a flamenco dancer and the 3 musketeers and you might be close. Now I like drama in a sleeve, I usually prefer my sleeve volume to be controlled with a cuff, but this season loads of volume and no cuff equates to absolute havoc when you are …

Power of She

Women’s Month August 2017 I like being a woman. I like feminine things, not in a Barbie doll way, but rather a sophisticated, stylish and dare I say it, occasionally seductive way.

Beauty with No Cruelty

I was appalled to learn recently that Estee Lauder and M.A.C cosmetics have started animal testing again (M.A.C outsources the testing- same thing in my book).
