FridayStylefinder: Tailored Wide-Leg Trouser from Karen Millen

Happy Friday everyone! apologies for this being a little late in the working day … I got a bit held up earlier! Anyhoo … Trousers, guys. Bright red ones. Big, massive, wide-legged things of 90’s-esque beauty from Karen Millen. Who loves them? God I do! … they may well be a little ‘out there’ for everyone’s tastes, but for me, I think they are fabulous. I know, I do need to have them taken up, but what can I say, I’m a shorty. They have only just arrived in the post but I still wanted to show them to you… However, that…

FridayStylefinder: Two Summery T-shirt Dresses

For this weeks #Fridaystylefinder I thought it only right to feature clothes that are actually applicable to our sudden onset of (very welcome) summer. Basically, I’m showing the dress that I am actually wearing today, plus its sister dress –  I love this dress that I’m wearing so much that I bought a similar one. I’ll show you … This is what I’m wearing today – Its from Boden (I know. Boden again!) but I love its simplicity. I love that its loose and comfy, and its just perfect for a day working from home, and doing a bit of…

Guest Posting on Mummy’s Got Style – The Not-So-Good Photos

Last Friday, I was super fortunate enough to feature on the fabulous site: Mummy’s Got Style (The style blog of super-blogger Vicki of HonestMum). The theme was ‘Festival Style for Mums’ and it seemed only fitting to shoot the photos whilst enjoying a (VERY boozy) picnic with friends, accompanied by one seriously cute VW camper van … Just to put this into perspective if you aren’t familiar  – Mummy’s got style Is a very popular and busy site. Its uber professional and my guest post needed to reflect that. Now that’s all fine, I’m happy and comfortable with professionalism. Professionalism is my middle name.…

Blue Pattern Is The New Black

Along with red shoes (Can you tell?) I’ve a thing for Blue. Blue patterns in particular. So imagine my joy at reading in countless fashion magazines this month that blue is set to ‘have its moment’ 🙂 And as I stand here, in my mirror, marvelling at a blue sky wearing a blue skirt with the blue patterned cushions on my bed, I also see from my bedside table that my allegiance to all things blue and patterny has reigned strong for a little while now … (So has my love of Walberswick in Suffolk!) And what’s even cooler, is that this season, designers…

Body Confidence, Blogging & Outfits

  After just a little over year of blogging outfits on ZmG’s #FridayStylefinder post, I wanted to do a write an explanation of sorts. A conclusion, if you will. So, question: do I choose to write about fashion because I’m an expert; a qualified stylist; a total legend in the style stakes? God NO! and nor do I, for any amount of cotton-pickin’ seconds think that that I posses any particular flair for the subject. I just love it is all. And that’s all there is to it really – That’s the only reason I write these posts. I guess one of the perks…

An awkward moment

As you may know, I’m at home most days. I do the breakfasts, the school run, then I sit down to do some writing. I have lunch, then I clean and do the cooking for dinner. I’m a busy man. I don’t often find the time to walk around stark bollock naked. But I’m wondering now if I might have a reputation for doing so. This week’s writing prompt from @Post40Bloggers is ‘an awkward moment’ and so it seems like a good time to… well. Let me explain. Are you sitting comfortably? It was a normal day. I wrote for a…

52 reasons why your kids are drunk all the time

I’m pretty sure kids drink when we’re not looking. Let’s examine the evidence for this theory. Moody when they wake up? Yep. Just like an alcoholic. Talking rubbish? Yep. Boozed off their tits. Falling over invisible things? Yep. Definitely swallied. Seemingly unable to do simple tasks like eating without covering themselves, and others, in food. And then giggling about it? YEP. As pished as a pished fish. Why do you think they’re always asking you for money? This morning we had fingers trapped in a window. Why? No-one could answer why. I can. Because they’re drunk. What did you do…

5 Steps to Perfect Brows

  1. Using an eyeliner brush and eye shadow or brow pomade (not a pencil!) apply soft ‘hair like’ strokes to define the underneath of your brow. Your aim when shading and defining the brow, is to softly imitate the shadow of existing hairs using small strokes of the brush – This is the secret to achieving a ‘believable brow’ softly softly, catchy monkey …. 2. Next, define your arch. Again, follow your own natural shape, filling-in where the hairs may be finer and lighter in colour. I am always surprised at how effective this simple step is – its like unearthing an amazing, natural brow shape…
