Jenny Jones wins Historic British bronze!

Jenny Jones makes Great Britain proud as she wins our first-ever Winter Olympic medal on the snow with bronze in the women’s snowboard slopestyle. We couldn’t be more proud when Jenny won bronze on the second day of the competition, wining Britain’s earliest medal in the Winter Olympics. The 33-year-old from Bristol was the oldest entrant in the final, but she showed her experience with her best run of the week on her last attempt. Jones’s score of 87.25 briefly put her top of the standings and though she was overtaken by Finland’s Enni Rukajarvi (92.50), who took silver, and gold medallist Jamie Anderson (95.25), her third-place finish was seen as a wonderful achievement. GO JENNY!!! An emotional Jones was… Read More →

Simon & Cheryl discuss X Factor return

Simon Cowell has reportedly asked Cheryl Cole to return as a judge on The X Factor. The music mogul, who famously axed Cheryl from the US version of the show in 2011, is said to have wooed her back with a butler service dinner over the weekend. “It was just him and Cheryl,” an insider told The Sun. “Simon was offering an olive branch. It was a very civil evening. “She was happy and loved talking about the show. It’s pretty much nailed on that she’ll be back.” Simon, 54, confirmed his own return for the eleventh series of the UK talent show just last week, but has yet to announce his fellow judges. The insider added that Cheryl could be revealed as a returning judge “within… Read More →

Martine George- pint size powerlifter

The one to watch. When I say powerlifting to you girls, you probably have the misconception that people who partake in this sport have to be bulky and masculine, well Martine is here to break that stereotype. This lovely lady is set for big things in 2014 and is far from this image. At only 5 feet 4 inches Martine is breaking the mould that girls have to be a certain physique to achieve in this sport. I caught up with Martine last week and couldn’t wait to find out how she has got where she has and what’s next on the cards. I am certain you will be just as inspired by her as I am. Some facts about… Read More →

Oprah Winfrey ‘A BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE from BLIGHTY WITH LOVE XXX’

When Victoria Picton (MIW CEO.. awesome lady!) asked me to write about Oprah Winfrey I kept calm and said ‘Yes! Love too…’ then I put the phone down and panicked ‘Where do you start writing about such a remarkable and legendary woman of our time? Eeek! No pressure then… ’ Un-conventionally I have decided to commence with a brief history lesson. The ancient Egyptians revered and celebrated the gift of wisdom and thought, because they knew this was the heart of all true lasting success, wisdom as I have written before is the assimilation of knowledge; knowledge as a stand alone is limiting and can easily attract narcissism.  Think of the great Cleopatra if you will for a minute, a… Read More →

Last Minute Christmas Shopping

I have a confession. Every Christmas I vow that the following year I’ll become one of those ridiculously organised people who begin their Christmas gift shopping in September and then smugly tell you every November that they’re all done and just need wrapping paper. My reality however usually involves praying that some gifts get delivered on time and a manic last minute dash to central London. I’m not alone though. The 23rd and 24th of December are up there with some of the UK’s busiest shopping days, and it can be stressful. So here are some gift ideas for the ladies in your life. The Makeup Junkie   Most makeup lovers have been looking forward to getting their hands on… Read More →

Dress to impress

With Madamrage.com What is it us girls go for when shopping for an outfit online? Are you dressing to impress, or are you simply trying to update your wardrobe? Personally I look for outfits which are versatile, of course glam but they need to have that element of affordability. Having come across ‘madamrage.com’ I have found there is some good choice on offer, spanning from casual to evening wear, there is something for all.  You might remember the lovely Nicole Shcherzinger wearing this black dress earlier this year, one of Madamrage’s own. This sexy black cut out dress is very reasonable at £16.00 and can still be purchased via the site, also available in blue. It oozes fun and flirtation,… Read More →

Christmas Jumpers

Now everyone should have at least one staple Christmas jumper in the build up to the big day. Whether you prefer the understated ones or an explosion of colour, there is a lot of choice out there to suit all tastes. Even my dog Clyde wears his jumper with pride every year. I was out with my friends only last week having an early festive gathering and the dress code was simply a ‘Christmas jumper’ it was great to see how everyone went all out with this theme. What is it you go for when picking these items? Would love to hear your thoughts. Either way we should remember to not take this trend too seriously, the jumpers should above… Read More →

Erase those spots!

Hello ladies. So with the seasons Changing pretty dramatically here in London, literally going from humid and damp to wet freezing and windy over night, it’s played havoc with my skin. While recently I’ve been trying to stick to a good skin regime (cleansing, toning and moisturising) my skin still isn’t responding well to my current lifestyle. I work night shifts quite often and often have very little sleep and my life is a constant rush so along with that and the environment my skin isn’t looking to fresh. I wanted to try a new concealer. I decided, after staring at the dark circles round my eyes to get a ‘decent’ one. Not your standard drug store concealer which is… Read More →
