SPRING BREAK

SPRING BREAK

– DAYWEAR AT DEBENHAMS – A ‘shopping day’ – a rare excursion where I tear myself away from my online shopping addiction. My immediate venture leads me straight to a department store – the ultimate female playground – Debenhams being one of my favourites. LIKE A KID IN A CANDY STORE I COULD SPEND HOURS BROWSING THE NEW-IN MAKEUP ON THE GROUND FLOOR THEN FINISHING OFF IN THE SHOE DEPARTMENT. THE SMART CASUAL So I’ve teamed up with Debenhams to show you exactly how I’m planning on tackling Spring/Summer dressing this years. When it comes to daywear I go one of two…

BODY BASICS

BODY BASICS

– KEEPING FIT THE EASY WAY – I used to run 10K a day – I’m serious every single day – and to be honest my body didn’t really benefit from it. I still wasn’t very toned and I just couldn’t work out why. So fast forward a couple of years and I now only go the gym about three days a week and I’m in better shape than ever.

It was right about now actually that I could just about see the finish line in April 2015. Everybody had jobs lined up and knew where they wanted to go and what they wanted to do but I still hadn’t got a clue.

LAST NIGHT IN PARIS

LAST NIGHT IN PARIS

 – SHOPS & CHAMPAGNE – My final night in Paris was spent at the Hôtel Etoile Saint Honoré by HappyCulture perfectly located at the west end of the Champs Elysees and a five minute walk from all the shops. Of course I had to wander along down my favourite road in Paris – Avenue Montaigne – scattered with the world’s most influential designer flagship stores. It’s worth having a look just for the eccentric and magnificent window displays and a browse the latest ‘IT’ bags of the moment. I’d done my fair bit of sightseeing so when the porter escorted…
