On BBC Radio London Drivetime at 4.40pm with Jim Davis

On BBC Radio London Drivetime at 4.40pm with Jim Davis. Chatting to Jim on how to do hot Summer dressing in the office workplace. Especially if you are client facing. 
How to stay cool but still look appropriate for your company brand and ethos.  No flip flops, bra straps, etc.
However if you work within the media or for a young IT or techi company then anything goes. @bbcradiolondon

Selfie in a taxi late for an event

Selfie in a taxi late for an event.

When there a no time to go home between work and an evening event.

What does a girl do when still wearing flats and no makeup?
You go to Peter Jones and do a whole makeup on the Laura Mercier counter with their testers and buy a pair of heels on sale reduced from £90 to £45. 
Result! .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London


Excited for the press preview of Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A. . . . . .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair. Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London.

Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…


Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Even after a leg amputation Frida remained true to her own unique personal style customising her prosthetic leg with a stylish  decorated boot.

1933 Self-portrait Frida Kahlo exhibition Making herself up @vamuseum London. Frida's mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time. She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon '"everything's rosy" lipstick  and red nail varnish.

Some of Frida Kahlo’s dresses. What can I say but how fabulous!

Loving my new stylish Tulip kitchen chairs

Loving my new stylish Tulip kitchen chairs.

Thank you @pashclassics for getting them to me in less than 12 hours!
They finish off the 50's style vibe in this kitchen corner.
Spot @misslucy_lou the bichon/westie cross on her bed in the corner. 
She always wants involved and to be in the picture.
The fuschia coloured Sweet Peas and beautiful Peonies are all from my Isle of Wight garden.
The orange Tulips are silk fakes. 
I often mix real flowers with fake when interior styling or staging a property.

Realise your dreams

Realise your dreams.

Have you seen the movie "The Book Club"? Funny and so pertinent to so many women over 50.
Often we lose who we were, whilst caring for our familes, being too busy, or feeling guilty. 
It's never too late to start over and realise your dreams..
You only have one life! .

Healthy lifestyle tips

Healthy lifestyle tips.

Here are 5 tips for a good digestive system and improved gut health which is the key to your general optimum health and well being.

I subsitute oatcakes for bread when I'm craving a healthy carb fix,  especially eaten with unpasteurized cheese (a healthy gut likes unpasteurised cheese and fermented foods as friendly bacteria and probiotics keep your microbiome happy and healthy). .
