Issue 4 - Flirty Forties, Russian Belts and VPL


FLIRTY FORTIES. . . . trend
This is one of the prettiest and easiest trends to follow this season and suitable for work too. Try knee length dresses and pencil skirts, frilly fronted blouses, tweed trousers and wavy hair. Red lipstick is back too, but only go for it if you know it suits you. Heels are a must and you can keep warm with a fake fur collar or scarf and ladylike gloves.

EWELLERY ON A BUDGET . . . . accessories
One thing that can transform an outfit is jewellery. You can pick items up so cheap its a crime not to have a collection. Try Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Primark, New Look and Peacocks for inexpensive fashion jewellery. Get there at sale time and you can pick up something for as little as 50p! Alternatively visit charity shops. They are especially good for beads and I have been known to find them for 10p - 50p.

BABY WIPES . . . . beauty

I love the face cleansing wipes that are available from most beauty brands. Baby wipes however are much cheaper. Around £1 for 80 compared to £3 for 40. They tend to be slightly drier so if you are prone to dry skin use alongside a cream cleanser. It works out cheaper than using cotton wool!! These wipes also tend to be good for sensitive skin as they are designed for delicate little babies.

DREADED VPL . . . . clothes

VPL has long been a fashion nightmare. You should always follow these 2 simple rules. Don't wear underwear that is darker than the clothes worn over them. Black thongs under white trousers are never cool. Secondly, never wear underwear that is too tight. Not only is it uncomfortable, it will ruin the smooth lines of your silhouette and create bulges where you don't want them. Don't be afraid to go up a size, you can just cut out the label and no one will ever know.

Schuh has an amazing range of shoes in all types and styles. I definitely recommend checking out the Irregular Choice range for something a little bit different. There is currently a sale on too and the website will sort the 'new in' and 'best seller' items if you need some inspiration.


Beverly Hills Formula toothpaste
I have tried many whitening toothpastes, but this one offers really good value for money. It is pleasant tasting, and does a good job in keeping my teeth healthy and my smile white. Of course this is not going to bleach your teeth, but it is a good at helping prevent stains for under £4.00

Russian Metal Waist Belt - £15.00
I love this belt from Miss Selfridge. It is ideal for jazzing up little black dresses during the forthcoming party season. I personally think it looks alot more expensive than its modest £15 price tag.
