I have always been a fan of  Aimee McWilliams. She’s very cute, with huge eyes, and the first time I met her she was wearing a long patent leather and fur coat – naturally one of her  own designs – she looked amazing and you just wanted to know more about her. Aimee graduated fromContinue reading

Ok, as well as being a celebrity addict I’m also a little bit of a magpie. Ok, I’m a total magpie; if something shines off a reflective surface well, it just has to be mine. So you can imagine my delight when I went to see Miss Beyonce Knowles at the O2 Arena in London.Continue reading

  New York, New York – they say a city soooo good they named it twice! Now you may say that I’m a little biased being originally from NYC but  you have to admit there is something very magical about this place.  I just turned down the street one day on my recent NYC visitContinue reading

This is what I love about Paris Hilton – she can wear anything, and lots of people will gift her anything but she still wears something just beause she likes it. You either love or hate Paris but I can’t help but admire someone for having their own style. Paris purchased three of Louis Mariette’sContinue reading

Stylist Stuff started out as something quite random and I was never really sure what to write about – but you write about what you know and I really love being a stylist. One of the best things about being a stylist is that I get to go to some amazing places and work withContinue reading

Let’s just start with I love my job. However, like everyone, sometimes I just want to stop and eat ice cream and run around screaming and laughing. I’d like to be able to roll down a hill and not care about grass stains or bruising or being sore the next day. I remember having screamingContinue reading

Super-cool debut single from The Big Pink, called Velvet. Some songs just make me imagine a runway show – this would be really good runway music…

One of the best parts about working in this creative industry is that I have had the chance to have develop many wonderful friendships with some very talented people. Francesca Van Der Feyst  is a freelance hairdresser and men’s grooming specialist. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her during London Fashion Week where sheContinue reading

I love when a celebrity or public figure wears a hidden gem. It’s so easy to play it safe and chose a well known designer. I think you have to have true style and confidence to wear something just because you like it, and I think it’s great because naturally I want all the smallContinue reading

Every man in the public eye wears make-up, even Gordon Brown. His make-up routine was accidentally left in a taxi by an aide. It’s a very basic routine, more like a Make-up for Dummies, but everyone’s got to start somewhere. Of course it might seem embarrassing for the whole world to read your make-up routineContinue reading
