The crazy life of Soho

February 10, 2022

Hello, I’m looking out of the window at a very grey sky but honestly bursting to share a story with you about a huge ray of uncontrollable sunshine that is bathing the lives of four friends bringing them heart-bursting happiness. None of them knows each other and unless I arrange it, are unlikely to meet, but the essence of what’s happened is the same and if you see yourself in this story maybe, just maybe, if you’ve been thinking about…

Let’s Talk ‘Accessorizing’

February 10, 2022

Hello, Well lots of lovely fashion ideas are pouring out of My Weekly this week and so, inspired by my trip to Italy, let’s talk ‘Accessorizing’ Beginning with my favourite fashion film quote curtesy of Olympia Dukakis while playing Claree Belcher in Steele Magnolias “What separates us from animals, is our ability to accessorize” and it’s so true. In my book ‘How to Age Well – The Secrets’ we cover this subject, I say ‘we’ but it’s really my friend…

Hello, from Italy!

February 10, 2022

Hello, This week I’m writing to you from a small town in Italy just outside of Milan, from my window the sky is a stunning blue, the mountains are glistening, I can smell log fires burning, nothing could look better. However, we are here not for the happiest reasons. My Fiancé’s mother who lived here passed away just before Christmas and we are painstakingly going through her homemaking those awful decisions deciding what to keep and what to let go…

What will this year bring?

January 22, 2022

Hello, So, we’re well into 2022 the year that’s billed cosmically as 12 months of ‘revelation, enlightenment and bravery which allowing our real selves to emerge’. The years newly launched pantone is called ‘Very Peri’ (light purple to you and me), and if you follow Feng Shui the colour to bring luck into our homes is Mint Green which personally, I adore. Then from February 1st we enter the Chinese year of the Tiger which means we will be filled…

New Year, Let’s talk – ‘How to Age well”

January 15, 2022

Hello,   Well in line with our magazine I confess that this weekend outside of wearing my matching Pyjamas (last years New Year resolution to tidy up my home wear still going strong) I have spent waking hours in running around in gym wear while not actually doing anything that would remotely come under the heading ‘Exercise’ The other joy of wearing gym wear is it blends in beautifully with my lack of makeup and hairstyling, I mean who goes…

So this is 2022!

January 5, 2022

Hello, So this is it, 2022 New Year, New You (or just a little bit of editing and fine-tuning!) I am a constant life editor, tweaking and fiddling around with everything from my home to my wardrobe. I believe it is good for the soul as is keeping things clean and fresh. When everything is tidy and free from clutter we twinkle ‘reduce to radiate’ So with Christmas decorations packed away, this is the time to look around your home…

Let’s talk about Christmas Day

January 5, 2022

Let’s talk about Christmas Day. I love so much about the Christmas season and truly bust a gut getting as much right as humanly possible. I love the city lights, shop windows, the bustle, meeting up with friends, drinking mulled wine, decorating the house while listening to Christmas tunes via Alexa, watching ‘A Wonderful Life’ (it has to be done) drinking mulled wine, even though we know a Rioja would taste nicer and eating all those foods we never consume…

The Christmas Countdown Begins

December 6, 2021

Hello,   Really on the countdown to Christmas now so hope you’re getting through your practical ‘To Do List’ and your emotional one? By this I mean all those people who you think about often, don’t see but always mean to get in touch with. Well, don’t be a teenager, pick up the phone. But why don’t we? Is it because with all these forms of modern communication and social media we’ve forgotten the humble telephone, that amazing invention put…

Broken Bones & Christmas Shopping

November 28, 2021

Hello, The internet shopping part of my Christmas is well underway, and I hope to have all gifts bought, delivered, and possibly wrapped by the end of November so I can enjoy all the twinkly nice bits that the festive season has to offer. If you are now reaching for a bucket of dirty floor water to throw over my self-righteous, sanctimonious little head, in the words of The Spice Girls “Stop right there”! This flurry of organisation is only…
