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…

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.…

FridayStylefinder: A Perfect Wedding Guest Dress by Oasis

That lovely moment when a beautifully wrapped wedding invitation drops onto your doormat is an exciting one. It is. And lets face it, we all know why – Its not just because of the joyous impending nuptials between your beloved friends or family, it is also (mainly) because it means you have permission to buy a new outfit. Probably new shoes too. definitely a new bag. Its THE LAW. And whilst Its not a written law as such, it would still stand up in any court I’m sure, because its the peoples law … you know, much like ‘bagsy’ or calling ‘shotgun’, You know it.…

1 Scientific Fact You Didn’t Know About Face Serum

For the past decade, I’ve been resisting the urge to buy into the new skincare ‘must have’, or ‘Zeitgeist’ addition to my already extensive, expensive and time-consuming skincare routine. Serum – now we are supposed to buy Serum. On top of everything else. We are all already cleansing, toning, moisturising, eye-treating, scrubbing, masquing and Argo oiling it up, right? Surely that’s enough; surely that will keep horrendous complexions and the dreaded ageing at bay? Nope. Its not enough, ladies. Now you need to add a (often very expensive) serum into our daily mix. Applied after cleansing, and just before moisturising, it is designed to ‘boost’…

FridayStylefinder: Topshop Polka Dots & Tights

Happy Friday lovely people! … (I’m always very tempted to write ‘Happy Friday Y’all’ … what is with that? I’m from Brighton not Tennessee!) I’ll stick with my roots and just use ‘Hello’. So anyway, Hello! Its Friday. Its freezing. What a surprise! therefore, instead of the lovely white short and top combo I planned to show you, I am instead digging out the old 70 deniers, together with a nice soft woolly scarf. (Again, another apt reminder that this is April in England NOT Tennessee) ‘Smart tailoring meets playful’ in this lovely shirt dress from Topshop, and is just bang-on for smart casual…

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…
