The Neverending Search for the Perfect Christmas Dress

The title reads just like a fairy-tale doesn’t it? Well, it might as bloody well be. Finding a dress to wear to the work Christmas party is as about easy to find as a Dodo Cocktail. Believe it or not, I don’t want to spend £150 just so Jim from H.R. can spill red wine […]

Olympic Fever, Bikinis and Maxi Dress Bonanza

So, the last couple of months have been pretty bloody hectic, haven’t they? For me, the Olympics coming to London was like telling Tony Blair that his parents-in-law were coming to stay. Forever. It meant that my journey to work would be totally ruined, like a cake in the rain – and people waxed lyrical […]

Why, George, why??!

Why have George at Asda taken all of my money? It seems unfair. My paypal account was screaming at me not to, but I did it anyway. I’ve booked a holiday, you see. To the South of France. It’s hot, and apparently I melt like a snowman. The problem is, I don’t do sleeveless, either. […]

But this also means that I have an absolute pig of a backlog of things to review. I’ve gone bananas with […]

The tale of the Clements Ribeiro Matchstick trousers… and even more jewellery…

So I did end up getting the Clements Ribeiro trousers. Remember I said I would? I did it, bitches! But I ordered a 16 and an 18… I needn’t had bothered, because the waist was elasticated and would have fit anyway. So, the 16 was ok waist-wise, but they were baggy in the legs. Also, […]

Evans Rant-O-Rama

I haven’t posted for a few days… I think my brain is still recovering from my six-pair shoe blow-out. That was a bit reckless, wasn’t it? But dammit – I look stylish! Anyway, my post today is going to be a bit of a rant, I’m afraid. A rant about our old friend, Evans. I’m not even […]

Marks and Spencer’s ‘Plus’ Range

Since when did Marks and Spencer start doing a plus size range? They must not have included me in their memo. Thanks, arseholes! Anyway, brash offense aside, I’ve been perusing the digital realms of the new Plus range on Marks’ website. I have to say, given M&S’s target market, that I am pleasantly surprised. Plus […]
