A quick update on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s, outfit, today at Wimbledon! She wore a gorgeous white pinstripe blazer, with a new pair of sunglasses, and her trusty Madewell hat. It’s now available to purchase in the UK and I really, really wish I could buy it!
Halloween is nearly here, and while everyone else is dishing up tutorials to transform your face into sexy versions of whatever, I’m here to dish out some truth. I’m not going to show you how to do your makeup this Halloween, I’m going to show you how not to do it. Learn from these mistakes from a beauty expert. That’s me, it’s my blog, so I’m the expert right now. Watch me as I skilfully dissect some so-called iconic looks to give praise where it is due, but most importantly, to point out so big mistakes so you don’t fall into the same trap…
Captain “Pazuzu” Howdy, The Exorcist
I think it’s great that even as a Captain, Pazuzu is not afraid to experiment with some fierce looks. All I’m saying is that using eyeshadow to define your teeth is a bit too much even for the evening. But that contouring is really really good.
For you, I recommend: Colgate toothpaste, to keep those teeth shining pearly white.
It can get manic trying to keep up with every item worn on a royal tour, so I’ve decided to keep a running, updated tally of every item worn, complete with links. Keep checking back as this post will be continually updated live!

You all know I love my flats – specifically French Sole flats! So I was thrilled to get an invite to the French Sole press day this September!
What to wear if not my trusty classic leopard print French Sole flats?!
I love the new design of the interior of the flats – the branding has been updated with a new slick font, and the beige leather with gold text looks amazing. And I love these cute Japanese style cat faces!
Kawaii, no? These sweet little shoes have such a great contrast between the royal blue velvet and the lemony yellow design.
The classic ponyhair designs with animal prints remain a firm favourite – the contrasting trims for all of these are so chic!
I think some of my favourite shoes here are the studded ones below – I just love the quilted effect.
More cat flats! These ones have a cheery expression, don’t they? And the gold and pink is just beautiful.
Classic patent crocs – these are really handy as well as gorgeous. Whenever it rains I like to break mine out, because they’re so hardy against the puddles!
Check out these beautiful whimsical designs! I love this secret garden styling too!
I love the style of having two different designs on your flats. This black swan style is dreamy!
Sweet and stylish – doves in love! What a romantic pair!
I’m a massive fan of Charlotte Tilbury, particularly her eyeshadow palettes – and the words ‘limited edition’ always have me clicking on the checkout button so fast I’m sure I look like a woman possessed. Last year I bought the Instant Eye Palette as soon as it launched, which was a gorgeous array of nudes, browns, peaches and silvers which you could use to create looks called Day Eye, Desk Eye, Date Eye, and Disco Eye.

Together: Our Community Cookbook is probably one of the most significant books in its category to be published this year. It’s not just a collection of recipes, it’s a symbol of hope, renewal, strength, dedication and a celebration of community and of the giving spirit of women. The book represents not just the Duchess of Sussex’s first big solo project since her high profile wedding and entry into the British Royal family, but it’s also a story of how a tragedy has brought a group of people together, united them in grief, and a story about the indefatigable nature of the human spirit. It’s also a melting pot of cultures and identities that neatly describes modern Britain, and the sense of unity and a shared bond is woven throughout the pages within.
First of all, I recognise that there’s a bit of a mental leap to be taken here from watching a show about barely functional alcoholics and then being inspired to do a post about whisky, but… What’s my excuse? I guess this one’s for all the people who love Sharp Objects, don’t have a drinking problem, and like cocktails… Like me!
