Review | Anatomicals No Old Bags Allowed Eye Gel

Another Anatomicals product, and another beauty bargain for anyone shopping on a budget (which, with Christmas coming up and an economic "crisis" in progress is probably most of us). This is called No Old Bags Allowed, it’s £3, and it’s…

Review | Jean Paul Gaultier Fragile Eau de Parfum

Review | Ralph Lauren ‘Notorious’

When I mentioned Ralph Lauren’s new ‘Notorious’ fragrance last month I hadn’t had the opportunity to actually try it out. Well, this week I did, and it’s every bit as lovely as the sumptuous marketing campaign suggests. Going by the…

Smugness: I has it

The Coat: a cautionary tale

The gym, one year on…

This weekend marks the one year anniversary of Terry and I joining the gym. We decided to celebrate the occasion by forgetting to renew our membership, so that when we turned up for Body Pump on Monday morning and tried…
