Who hasn't been watching The Handmaid's Tale? Wow, its gripping isn't it? and scarily a bit like life in other parts of the world. I don't normally like things like this as its not 'real' but you can imagine it happening, really well produced. And its obviously causing comment in all the media, its a story for our times. Can't wait to see what happens next
So this is my new favourite scent. I was luckily enough to go to the factory where they make the Diptyque candle containers recently - more of that in another post - and was given this, its such a fresh, summery fragrance, and the best thing? It lasts all day! I love it.
So Summer clothes, never an easy one, especially when you are getting on a bit, like me. I had some time to kill in Debenhams, so I mooched about and saw this. I was a bit worried it was too young for me, but I have had so many nice comments about it. Its stretchy, so its really comfortable, with short sleeves to hide those wrinkly upper arms, a good length for a short person, sorry petite, and pockets! I love a pocket.
So being in interiors and loving lipstick, here are two killer trends. A new collaboration with interiors guru and potter, Jonathan Adler and Clinique. There's a capsule range including eye and lip colours all in this fabulous design, the top of the lipstick has a coloured dome, in pink, blue and green and all the pieces have this geo, art deco design.
