Reviewed. Dawn O’Porter: Paper Aeroplanes

Dawn O’Porter’s first novel, Paper Aeroplanes was released yesterday. I am sure I’m not alone in my unending love for Dawn Porter. Or, Dawn O’Porter as I should now call her (Dawn changed her name after her marriage to Chris O’Dowd). Dawn is perhaps best known for her hard-hitting documentaries. Through my late teens, I devoured her … Continue reading

A Psychic Experience

On Friday last week, I did something I have never done. Despite always wanting to, I’d always been too scared.  Mind out of the gutter please, it’s nothing like that… Last week, I was lucky enough to have my palms read by one of the UK’s top psychics. Before you say ‘how can you be … Continue reading

Thighs, Tits and Tummys: Rihanna for River Island

FIRST LOOK: River Island High Summer 2013 Preview

Style Icon: Millie Mackintosh

Unfortunately, today, I am sad, tired and ill. Fortunately, however, this means I can watch daytime re-runs of Made In Chelsea completely guilt-free. How about that for a silver lining?

This morning as I settled down with a brew and slid my February Vogue out from its shiny red band, one cover line in particular attracted my attention. ‘Cool Customer. Making the most of your fashion budget.’ I turned straight to the page. Emily Sheffield’s fantastic feature discusses one of my constant traumas and dilemmas: … Continue reading
