Last Saturday I was lucky enough to have a complimentary hair cut and blow dry at Super Cuts in the Crossgates Shopping Centre, Leeds. Their premise is simple, you show up without an appointment and have your hair done.
Like most women, I adore beautifully made hand bags and shoes. They can transform an outfit and instantly reflect who you are or how you feel that day. What's more, bag and shoe shopping do not rely on a certain body size or shape and suit everyone. Last week I decided to treat myself to an investment Mulberry bag.
I love it when friends comment on how stylish they think my little boys are because let's face it, boy's fashion gets a lot of stick.
Style Spotlight shines a light on my style picks. I adore the British brand Mulberry and couldn't resist adding to my collection with this brilliant, bright orange continental wallet. Luckily, I picked it up in the sale for £180 from £225. What's more, in that colour, I can never lose it in my bag. Perfect.
I simply adore Avenue 32 so when I was asked to select my favourite luxury designer bags from this fabulous online collection, I jumped at the chance (trying not to trip up on my Louboutins).
Was it just me who shed a little tear when the Spice Girls got on stage last night? Admittedly I fell I asleep at 9pm so watched it this morning but still-I was 16-1-6 when I first heard 'Wannabee' on the radio-I remember it distinctly-chaperone Papa G was driving me back from Sixth Form College and I couldn't believe how cool the track was, it was truly empowering-these girls were singing directly to the opposite sex of what it would take to be their lover-it was like discovering boys for the first time (but wait that happened before 16, I was dating twins in primary school).
