I have recently been spending some time in the chemistry department where I did my PhD and I heard through the grapevine that I was remembered for my fashion (note, not my research or my brilliant mind! More on that in the future). I was also told that it didn’t take much to be remembered for fashion sense in a chemistry department- having a colour palette of more than 2 shades my clothing choices counted as interesting (I didn’t say that, a chemistry academic did). I was also asked by a colleague where this whole fashion thing came from. I […]

The current issue of Elle UK magazine has 25% off River Island womenswear so I utilised it to spruce up by winter wardrobe.

River Island Haul – Outfit 1

Another year older


Next month my brother in law, Jon, is running the London Marathon, he is not one of these crazy people who goes around running loads of marathon, but he has worked tirelessly, training and getting fitter so he can reach his goal to run the marathon in order to help a cause that is important to him, Penny Brohn Cancer Care. I think that is pretty awesome and deserves celebrating. Please, please, please give any donation that you can afford on his just giving page, you know it will make you feel a little bit good about yourself, it will […]
