Issue 1 - Swarovski Headphones, Eco Bags and Beehives


GLOSS AND GO . . . . beauty
If like me you get embarrassed by chipped nail varnish, or simply don't have the time to keep reapplying then try this. Slick on a couple of layers of Top coat instead. It gives a high shine finish, but barely shows when it chips off and it dries in no time too. Glossy, groomed looking nails which last longer.

ENVIROSAX . . . . Accessories
A reusable shopping bag with the fashion thumbs up. Pick one up for under £6 or get one in every colour to match all your outfits. My fave is the monochromatic range, very Audrey Hepburn. Certainly not as boring as the name would suggest. Buy yours at

LEGGINGS . . . . Clothes
Good news. Leggings are still around for this season and will ensure those flirty summer dresses needn't be pushed to one side just because wintery weather has arrived. Pick up some supplies in Primark if you are on a budget, where you can get black, brown or teal from just £3 each. Trendiest are the ankle length versions. Tuck into flat boots for day, or some chunky heels for the evening. BEWARE: If you wear yours with boots, make sure they are not too short. It is not cool for the leggings to ride up and show some leg!

Sign up for a charity event. You don't need to be competitive, and if running isn't your thing then that is OK too. Long distance walking takes training and if you rope in a friend you can gossip while you work out. This year I completed the 27 mile, Aviva Walk London to Breakthrough Breast Cancer and it was a challenge, but also a great achievement to have raised over £500 for charity.

DRAWER LINERS . . . . Home
Save all the scented perfume pages from your magazines. When you have a few saved up, tape them together to fit inside your drawers for modern and sweet smelling drawer liners. My undies are currently smelling of Chanel!

A treasure trove of antique and retro objects for the home, him and her. From 60p packets of love hearts to antique chandeliers there is something to excite every treasure seeker. Find yourself a one off object or something a little bit retro.


MOP Hairspray
The best hairspray I have ever tried as it is quite simply gravity defying! This is best suited to those with thicker hair but will keep a Winehouse beehive up all night. Also great for flicks, fringes and pony tails. It is citrus scented and good for the environment too. An investment, priced from £4.95.


Swarovski Crystal Headphones
It may be a bit extravagant, but is there really anything cooler than a pair of headphones with a dazzling crystal? Swarovski have teamed up with Phillips with a range of headphones and USB Memory Keys priced from £50 to £105. These will have to go on the Xmas list.
