Portsmouth Alumni

One of my proudest days this year…in fact in my life…was going to the Guildhall in Portsmouth to see my very clever, talented and beautiful daughter recieve her 1st Class Honours Degree in Television and Broadcasting, and not only that, she was also being presented with the Sky Award for the Best Creative Industries Project…

A Night At The Hamptons

One thing I have always wanted to do after watching programmes like “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and films like “White Chicks” was to have a White Party. It was right up there on my bucket list. I love anything that is different, designer and classy. So this year I did it. I was celebrating…

New York Couture

One of my favourite series has to be Sex and the City.  The story of writer Carrie Bradshaw and her friends Charlotte York, Samantha Jones and Miranda Hobbes. Despite being very close friends each of the ladies were very different. Carrie as we know is a writer of  books about relationships and finding a life…

Meadowgate

One of my most favourite people on the television is Kirstie Allsopp. I love the programmes she makes with Phil Spencer, “Location, Location, Location” was brilliant. Looking for the perfect home for different people. More recently she and Phil have been in a programme called “Love It Or List It”. This is basically about people…

Mr and Mrs Langsford-Holmes

One of my favourite programmes on Channel 5 stars a famous couple who are TV Presenters. They are so funny and see the funny side of everything and the programme they present is “How The Other Half Live”. Eamonn and Ruth delve into the lives of the rich and successful….both millionaires and billionaires get the…

Bee Venom Face Mask, Caviar Face Cream and Collagen Serum

At one time or another we all look for products to make us look younger or help us get back the elasticity in our skin that we might well have lost over time. As I am a Qualified Beauty Specialist and I am approaching the big 5-0 I look at different products all the time…

A Mad Woman in a Blue Box

WARNING: Contains spoilers I started watching Doctor Who when Jon Pertwee was the Doctor and continued when Tom Baker took over. I remember hiding behind my grandparents sofa as soon as the theme tune began and the twirling opening with the picture of the present Doctor  came into view. I have always been fascinated with…

Pescatarian Living

I became a Vegetarian when was 21. I had put a lot of thought into it for over a year. I had read lots of books on the subject and after a lot of thought and asking myself questions such as….will I miss eating meat? Could I actually do it? I decided that becoming vegetarian…

Sunflowers

I believe that one of the greatest painters who ever lived was a very troubled man called Vincent van Gogh. There’s just something about his paintings that really draws me to him, to want to find out more about him and try and understand what it was that lead to his early death. How could…

Handbags and Gladrags

Those who know me well know how much I love my handbags. I have always loved handbags and I have so many, that to tell the truth I really don’t have a clue how many I actually have. Like most people though, as much as I love the look and style of designer handbags, I…

Prosecco and Strawberries

One of my most favourite tipples, not just in the Summertime but in the Winter too has to be Prosecco. In the past few years it has become one of the most popular alcoholic drinks. For me, it is a real treat and with strawberries it is amazing. I really feel as though I am…

Victory Rolls

Shortly I will be in a production based around World War II and the Music Hall. Getting the outfit together has been relatively pain free, but sorting out the hair…Oh My Goodness!! My hair is mid-length and looking at the photographs most of them have vintage victory rolls in them. So I’m watching tutorial after…
