Over drinks the other day, we got together and counted how many of our friends had been laid off in the past two years. A scary sixty percent. Then we looked at what they went on to do. One, in particular, stood out.
Apparently it's true. One in four. Look around your office. Is it possible?
We know what you're thinking. When is house cleaning EVER sexy?
Every woman who has fashion at all on her radar would like a Chanel bag. We first wanted one at the age of 19, when all we could afford was a bottle of Coco (which we proceeded to wear every day, everywhere). And now SheerLuxe.com is going to give one away for free!
Honestly, we're not sure how they do it. But that's OK, because they do it. They have a new competition what feels like weekly, and they all rock.
This competition involves six things we love independently: gorgeous handbags, vouchers, Anya Hindmarch, the Bowery, SheerLuxe.com and my-wardrobe.com. And the sum of its parts? The winner set for spring.
In celebration of SheerLuxe.com's latest competition (to win THE It Bag of the year – Mulberry’s new Shimmy), we thought we'd take a look at that which inspired the term 'It'. The original It Girl.
The other day we were getting a facial, and we were reminded that winter - well, it is a-coming. And for once, we're going to try to do right by our skin. But if all else fails, we're entering this great competition from SheerLuxe.com.
So what? So, according to Madame A, today is a lucky day!
As wedding season is approaching, please allow us to drop in a few suggestions for making your day even greener. And no, we are not talking about the green of envy that will be on everyone's faces when they see how gorgeous you are...
We love Mrs Mills in the Sunday Times Style magazine, and like to think that's a cigarette holder in her hand (and not concealer). And we were fascinated by her recent column covering 'the stocking debate'.
