So I headed downtown to the SoHo store and … Continue reading Did Damien Hirst Just Get Affordable?!
Surely June 2014 will go down as the month of absolutely insufferable heat! It was averaging out at 30°C a day in New York, which for me - coming from London where the highest we get is around 23°C - was close to torture! Add to that my lack of an A/C unit and you … Continue reading June Favourites

A spattering of sunshine between gloomy skies, torrential downpour, and even a spot of unseasonal snow - this definitely … Continue reading April Obsessions

Plus there's all the religion and winter is over, spring is coming, let's frolic like lambs in a field -ness. To celebrate the holiday (which starts with Good Friday this … Continue reading Easter Treats
As well as my reviews and big, bold ideas, I also do love pretty little things like… beauty products! In fact, it’s a bit of an obsession, as my Sephora VIB card will testify. Each month I’ll be sharing a round-up of my personal beauty obsessions, starting today with my March products! Have you used … Continue reading March Beauty Obsessions

They’re delicious, easy to make, and with Valentine’s Day coming up, they make a great thrifty gift!
